Yvette Berry (Labor for Ginninderra) brings yet more Lego

By Ruqi - 26 July 2012 9

The Lego Challenge is going strong with the ladies now receiving a second representative in Yvette Berry.

Yvette and kids came by with ambulances, cars, and base plates, which are the foundations of any decent Lego construction.

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.

(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, Four Labor, Two members of the public (Thank you Ayrton and Penelope), One Green and no minor parties.

Yet. We’ll let you know!

(PS, time is running out to contribute. Any lego not lodged by 31 July isn’t going into the lego box of destiny, contact form is on the top right under “I want to”)

What’s Your opinion?

Should we pass around the hat for the poor photographer with the crappy lens?

Ah, don’t blame the camera, it’s excellent. I do however accept full blame as the ‘poor photographer’. And in regards to the lad: I had the impression he was just too cool to smile on camera.

She didn’t steal it from her little boy did she? He looks a tad unimpressed…

Hahaha! I was thinking the same thing! 🙂

She didn’t steal it from her little boy did she? He looks a tad unimpressed.

But she’s delivering on infrastructure. (Makes a change…)
