life imitating art

There is a collective groan in the house whenever one of those awful federal government ads comes on telling us how fair the Work Choices legislation has been. Most people know they have been sold a pup on this one. Now the ads are to be pulled. Embarrassingly for the government one of the actors who appears in the ad, as a dad wanting assurance that his son won’t be ripped off by employers – has allegedly been doing just that himself in real life.

For now we can have a rest from that earnest woman telling us that the government is on our side.

..and the not boyfriend can have a break from me yelling at the TV screen every time the propaganda is played. Until the government use more of our taxes for another campaign to tell us how well they’ve been taking care of us that is.

This is one of the talking points in the (union) office today. Some people are genuinely surprised. Why I have no idea.

Oh, we also have the launch of Kevin Rudd's website. The website is dull, boring, conservative and lacking substance - like Kevin himself.

Rudd brings on a Tourettes like response in me. It's a toss up between him and the government ads that get the most expletives.

As much as I want to see Howard go down the tube (and not You Tube) I have visceral response to Rudd. I don't trust him and don't want him as president, err, PM. Julia is another story though.
