    National MP David Carter has delivered his valedictory speech, after 26 years in Parliament

    National MP David Carter has delivered his valedictory speech, after 26 years in Parliament


    He says he entered through the mother of all by-elections, after Ruth Richardson resigned as MP for Selwyn - causing huge disruption for the Bolger Government.

    Carter says it was a baptism of fire, and the only humour providing any relief to the tension was the last-minute selection of New Zealand First's candidate Sir Tim Shadbolt - who was not too ashamed to say he'd never read the party's manifesto and had no idea of its policies.
