Phil Goff promised us that Labour would focus on the things that matter to Kiwi voters…like the volume of television advertisements:
There has been an ongoing debate in New Zealand for some time around volume and consistency between featured programmes and commercials on TV, where there are concerns that the audio of television commercials are broadcast at louder sound volumes than the television programme material they accompany. The issue is not straightforward, but the solutions are.
It is unbelievable that a major aprty would consider such an issue worthy of inclusion in a broadcasting policy let alone even mentioning it.
No wonder they are languishing in the polls when their much vaunted communications expert, Clare Curran, thinks that this is one of the things that matter to Kiwi voters.
