Chic Henry signs up for One Nation of Wheels

The only news on the Motorist’s Party website is that they’ve got a new website.

But the Canberra Times has the news that Summernats front man Chic Henry is going to be a very effective celebrity candidate for the white-shirts.

Despite being associated with the Liberal Party over the years, Mr Henry said the Motorists were a natural fit for him.

“If you think about all the things I’ve been known for, at the end of the day, I love cars, I love driving my car every day.

“I love motorsports, high performance cars, I couldn’t have run Summernats all those years if I didn’t love what it was all about so I think (the Motorists) were a closer fit to what I was all about,” he said.

He’s going to run in Ginninderra, which will be an interesting squeeze play on the middle seat there.

I tried to find anything about climate change on their site and couldn’t. But purely from an entertainment point of view, I hope that they are rabidly against the science. Then Henry BG can take on Chic Henry in the Battle of the Henries.

I’d rather vote One Nation than vote for these boofheads.

It didn’t take long for you to take the bait did it HenryBG?

I assume that AMP would be against everything

If Chic Henry’s party hasn’t got a climate change policy then Chic has my vote.

Burl Doble is a former One Nation and AMP candidate.

The AMP website is somewhat light on content.

Somehow I doubt that a person who life revolves around burning copious amounts of fuel will be worried about such environmental aspects.

Of course, I may be wrong and Mr Henry may indeed prove to have a different view.

I was actually searching for anti-climate change rants! “Why burn-outs are good for us and the atmosphere” or somesuch.

Fair point Jase! – profile amended.

Jase get real. Who knows any person’s identity and political affiliation who post on the RiotACT so why should only Gungahlin Al out himself as a green candidate on every post? No other candidate or staffer has been transparent. Also you should be aware that the AMP got 2.78% in Molonglo in 2008 so second preferences are important in determining the 7 th place. This election will be a cliffhanger!

2 points

firstly I’d like to see the link between the motorists party and one nation other than Johnboy just not liking them

and secondly if Gungahlin Al wants to comment on political matters like he did above I think it would be appropriate that his posts have a signature stating he is a nominated greens candidate so that the more recent visitors to the site know where he is coming from

Good on Chic for having a go.

Build us a motorsport complex without whinging neighbors

So Chic Henry is the Val Jeffery of this election? Small party outside – but really just Liberal inside?

Preference skimming?

A bit like The Greens and Labor, eh Al?

Something I can never understand about so called Motorists’ lobbies – why do they not understand that everything that increases take-up of public transport and cycling isn’t taking away from “road users” but is actually reducing congestion for those who can’t (or won’t) use those options?

What relationship exists between the Motorists Party and One Nation?

Wasn’t one of their founders a former one nation candidate or something like that?

I-filed 11:52 pm 15 Jun 12

With porn and prostitution the big earners during Summernats, surely a dream coalition of Fiona Patten and Chic Henry is on the cards?

If there was a dragway down Northborne we would not need light rail. Ideas people, ideas!

Rapid transit system that wouldn’t cost the taxpayer a penny. Now you’re thinking. Run the strip southbound in the mornings, northbound in the afternoon with a “park ‘n ride” system at EPIC.

Good news I think time will tell though who is he up against? and who is the current sitting member?
