    Default Do you agree with government advertising?

    Do you agree with how much the government spends on advertising? I really don't agree with using tv adverts instead of talk back radio, news programs ect. It just feels as though they are trying to hide something..

    No, i dont really have a problem with it, i mean not everyone listens to talk back radio, i know i sure dont. Its all a bit of a fluff anyway but i guess the public deserve/need to know at least a bare minimum of what policies they are voting for

    Imagine what $17 million could have done to fix up the schools, fix the health care system, give help to people who need it? I think it's a joke , what a total waste of money, imagine what they spend at election time!
    I think they should do what America does and get donations from their party supporters

    The government needs to advertise all the time. It needs to sell it's junk to the little people and make us happy.

    There should be restrictions on the use of external private agencies for advertising and marketing. It would be more cost effective to use salaried public servants for the advertising and marketing.
