Johnathan Davis (Greens for Brindabella) get the Greens off and racing with the Lego

The Lego Challenge keeps gathering pace with the Greens getting on board via Johnathan Davis.

For those coming in late there’s two things going on here:

    1) We need donations of Lego (or Lego contributed for return on a by-the-kilogram basis as we don’t plan to separate them back out again)

    2) So we can then spend August and September in the pub watching ACT election candidates trying to make the most impressive possible creation with the available bricks.

It should be noted we’re not doing one giant sit down with all the candidates at once (fun as that could be) but a series run over many nights with a YouTube video of what they make and what comes of it.

We’re certainly encouraging candidates to get in and donate the pieces they’re wanting to see when they sit down with the big box of Lego.

Much appreciated Johnathan! As a donating candidate he’s allowed to choose venue for his upcoming challenge, in this case PJ’s Tuggeranong has been nominated.

(Yes we realise clever candidates are getting good cheap publicity out of this. This is not a problem as we aim to encourage clever candidates)

So far the donating tally is Two Liberal, Two Labor, Two members of the public (Thank you Ayrton and Penelope), One Greens and no minor parties.

Yet. We’ll let you know!

What’s Your opinion?

I want the Pirate Party ACT (PPAU-ACT) to join in and actually bring some interesting Lego, so far the donations from candidates have been quite bland.

I guess the Greens picking a Hospital and Recycling Truck set fits somewhat with the party theme, but still boring imho.

It would be interesting to see whether the lego donated by each party/candidate says anything about their opinion or policies on key issues. For example, the lego Solar Array as opposed to the lego Cotton Plantation.

About time the Greens got on board with the Lego Challenge – bit dissapointed they didn’t have some better lego though – you would have thought they could have included some more interesting pieces to use but maybe they are trying to seem as bland as the major parties?

Apparently he regularly hosts karaoke at the Irish Club so I think he’ll be fine.

Can he wear his special teddy bear pyjamas to PJs?

What is PJs, incidentally?

A pub in Tuggeranong. You probably don’t want to make a special trip just to see it.

Or PJ’s, even. Auto-correct.

And I don’t mean to suggest that all candidates should be middle-aged. Just able to vote for themselves with a Real Pen.

PJs?

He won’t be allowed in.

PJ’s Tuggeranong? I would have thought the ABC child care centre at Kingston would have been more appropriate. Not as a parent but one of the pupils.

How old is Johnathan Davis? Not sure he breaks the age barrier to even play with that Lego.

Shouldn’t Greens lego be made out of recycled cardboard?
(someone had to start the ball rolling)

Haha.

I couldn’t vote for someone who needs mum to drive him to the Legislative Assembly.
