It appears Labor's election ad cycle has hit a snag with the interesting revelation that its key advertisement attacking Tony Abbott and the Coaltion is driven by an actress who apparently refused to pay $15 dollars to a family operated small business for delivery of expensive hand made spanish tiles.
It has been confirmed that Labor used actors for their most recent ad. However it would be useful if the goverments small business minister would explain whether he endorses the position of the actress in this ad, who refused to pay $15 delivery for expensive hand made spanish tiles.
In a time when small business is expected to tighten their belts under the odious regulation and increased taxation imposed on them by this government, it seems a bit rich that an eastern suburbs housewife would be considered by "ALP Strategists" as representative of the broader Australian community.
Perhaps Labor instead of trying to run teflon coated television campaigns whose actors don't truly reflect real Australia, should do a bit of their own 'renovating' in relation to their communications strategy.
Apparently all that keeps the 'actress' going is the thought that:
"Somewhere in a factory in Sydney is a dishwasher with my name on it. A stylish stainless steel dishwasher that only makes 42 decibels of noise".
Just a bit rich Labor, Just a bit rich!
