The obscene amount of Federal govt IR advertising

I’ve been appalled at the amount of advertising for the federal government’s IR policies recently – it’s everywhere – from bus stop posters to train station posters to ads in newspapers, advertising on websites (eg yahoo mail) and on television. Truly disgusting given that it’s effectively electoral advertising.

The advertising is missing the mark. People aren’t interested in whether a government body is “enforcing the law”, they don’t like what they think the law is! It’s a pretty crummy law if people are not guaranteed they can strike a collective union agreement with their employer.
