Another propaganda campaign

Well, this dud government has decided it needs to waste more money on an ad campaign.

THE Gillard government is defending its new $36 million advertising blitz on  compensation for the carbon tax, insisting pensioners and families need to know  about the payments that will start to flow in coming weeks.

Over the next six weeks alone, the government will spend $14 million – or  about $270,000 a day – on an information campaign about the household assistance  package  to be rolled out this month.

The opposition says the new campaign, which focuses on the $4.2 billion in  compensation payments rather than the carbon tax or climate change, will almost  double the amount the government is spending to sell the tax, bringing the total  to $70 million.

A spokeswoman for Families and Community Services Minister Jenny Macklin said it  was normal to have a ”public information process” in such cases. ”Pensioners  and families need to know that extra money will be appearing in their accounts  on purpose,” she said.

Wouldn’t the pensioners find out about the compensation on the TV, on account of those set top boxes Senator Conroy was kind enough to provide for them?


About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    No, the pensioners will miss that message. They can’t afford the electricity to power their TV’s and set top boxes.
    Another waste of Aussie dollars, borrowed from China.
