John Rudd ousted because of political propaganda

John Rudd’s government in Australia had been running adverts condemning the profits of the mining industry and advocating a super-tax on profits.

Rudd was elected partly on a platform of ending state sponsored political advertising (also known as propaganda) and his decision to run the campaign against the mining industry was seen as hypocritical and unfair and he has paid the price with his leadership.

 A party campaigning publicly on one issue and then changing their minds once in government… now where else have I seen that recently
