Australian Prime Minister's popularity at all time low
Tuesday, July 5, 2005
According to recent polls, Australian Prime Minister John Howard's popularity has hit an all time low in response to his policies in industrial relations. This has combined with a backlash against Treasurer w:Peter Costello, after he said in an interview on Lateline that religious teachings caused children "only a little harm". This comment followed a media stunt at a major church where Mr. Costello was attempting to capture the "Religious Right" vote.
The Liberal party has hit back by calling the public reaction "Labor propaganda".
