The Canberra Times has the interesting news that Mr Summernats Chic Henry is now a paid up member of the Liberal Party:
Summernats legend Chic Henry has joined the ACT Liberal Party and has his sights set on a seat in the ACT Legislative Assembly in 2016.
The former Australian Motorist Party candidate has signed up to the party that gave him ”moral support” in his 2012 campaign for a seat in the electorate of Ginninderra.
The Canberra Liberals used Mr Henry’s bid for a seat on the crossbench to boost their chances of forming a minority government.
But the former car festival promoter missed out on the fifth seat in the northern electorate, which was claimed by Labor’s Yvette Berry, now a contender for the role of sixth minister in the ACT government.
It could have all been so different if Chic had just fronted up for the Lego Challenge.
