“The Liberal Party today defended its use of pre-recorded phone messages from Prime Minister John Howard, with which it is bombarding households across Australia in the lead-up to polling day.” (n.c.a)
I’m so glad I’m not in the country. Getting one of those calls would probably lead to me destroying my phone in an incandescent rage. I’m not sure whether the American-style recorded message or hearing Johnnie’s voice would annoy me more.
