The Dom Post reports:
Chris Carter is due back at Parliament today as his sick leave runs out.
The Te Atatu MP refused to say this week if he was returning. And Labour, his former party, did not know whether he would show up.
Mr Carter took two months off after a clumsy attempt to topple party leader Phil Goff in July, saying he was “stressed”. He was later dumped from the caucus and is now an independent MP.
I hope Chris has recovered from whatever condition it was that necessitated two months sick leave.
Hopefully he has seen specialists to ensure it is not contagious.
