Labor using dodgy tactics (letter)by Alan BarronNews Weekly
, August 7, 2010
Last week, I received in my letterbox a leaflet which contained purported quotes from Tony Abbott and the local Liberal candidate for my electorate, Sarah Henderson, in which they supposedly said that politicians were not paid enough.
Leaving aside the fact that politicians are indeed underpaid, when compared to the millions paid to corporate executives, the leaflet did not identify the political party which published it.
On closer inspection, in microscopic type in grey faint print, I found the leaflet was authorised by one Nicholas Reece. After conducting a Google search, I discovered that he was the state secretary and campaign director of the Victorian branch of the Labor Party.
If the Labor Party hasn't the courage of its convictions to place its name clearly and visibly on its political advertising, then why should I trust them? This is very dodgy and simply is not good enough.Alan Barron,
