By now Canberrans should be asking themselves why the Government has stood by while they let the lone CTP insurer increase premiums by $52 when they won’t tell us what that same insurer is taking out of the premium pool. At the same time they want to strip the insurance policy of its value by removing our ability to claim for a wide range of injuries. In other words the Government is asking us to pay more but get less. It’s like registering a car with three wheels.
Everyone knows that the main cost driver of insurance is payments to injured claimants – which is why you have it in the first place. Canberrans should now be asking why the Government wants to take this away from them when there is no prospect that the premium will fall.
Australian Motorists Party
A week ago, we staged a very successful fund-raising cocktail function at Melrose Automobiles in Philip.
It was an opportunity to meet Chic and his two other Motorist Party candidates, Burl Doble and David Cumbers.
Approximately 100 people turned up to hear Candidate for Ginninderra Chic Henry make his maiden political speech, supported by two keen supporters who spoke of their knowledge of him.
Entertainment was provided by the very talented group MisterMeaner with the snack foods and drinks presented by generous caterers and Sponsors from the Summernats.
Those in attendance represented the broad spectrum of people from Chic’s personal and business life.
All agreed it was a great event and there were many positive well-wishers.
We wish to sincerely thank all those who assisted and especially Mr and Mrs. David Rayner GM of Rare Spares, who flew from Melbourne for the occasion.
A very special thanks to Domenic Alvaro, General Manager of Melrose Automobiles for allowing us to use the magnificent showroom.
People often ask us if cars are all we care about. The list below identifies the broadness of our considerations for a better Canberra and it is a growing list. Canberra is very much a motorcar-dependant City and we will drive the needs of motorists’ as just one of our many areas of pursuit of better Government in the ACT.
Canberra and the ACT is the place we care about.
The Community is who we care for.

Another question people ask of us is, “What is your platform? What will you do if elected?
The answer is, “We have opinions, and some strong, on many things. Everything however, is of interest to us, as evidenced by the list above. Help us identify the priorities and what must be attended to, by supporting our efforts. Once in Government, we will inquire about, participate in, direct and implement change for the good of the ACT Community.
