Glen Takkenberg, Pirate for Ginninderra, completes the Lego Challenge

By johnboy - 27 September 2012 5

Last night the Pirates’ Glenn Takkenberg (Ginninderra) took us out to the rather nice Zierholz@UC to show us a piratic vision for Canberra in Lego.

Glen’s priorities included: A technology hub, robots, communications technology, small licensed venues, pizza, motorcycles parking on footpaths, bush shelters and buses, public art, the pirate flag over the Legislative Assembly, protesting ninjas, performance art, street trees, teepees on lakes, boating, pirate ships, getting CSIRO to make dragons, a racetrack, rocket powered cars burning recycled oil, driver training facilities, high speed rail, the removal of point to point speed cameras, and less public surveillance

But don’t take my word for it he explains all in the video.

The next one scheduled is the Pirates’ Stuart Biggs tonight at The Hellenic Club In The City.

(Candidates who haven’t slotted themselves in are advised that there will be no candidate challenges after 8 October [we’ve been able to extend it a bit] and we need a week’s notice, so they better get in quick, and should email john@the-riotact.com )

Here’s our nifty calendar, you the public are reminded that you’re very welcome to come along to these things:

Why can’t I see that Pirate Party on the Elections ACT website? Am I doing it wrong?

We narrowly missed out on party registration in time for this election, but we are registered as ungrouped candidates with Elections ACT.
Our details will be listed on their website after today’s declaration of the candidates.

The candidates are

Stuart Biggs – Molonglo
Mark Gibbons – Brindabella
Glen Takkenberg – Ginninderra

I forgot to mention in the video that on top of the Legislative Assembly building is a bee hive for roof top honey in a similar vein to the ones in Melbourne’s Federation Square http://www.fedsquare.com/eatdrink/rooftop-honey/
