Some body must be having a massive cringe in the corner after this whole saga. PR never worked so bad with a good intention before. The SH** t has literally hit the fan with this banana drama.
First they get off first off the sprinting block ,only to see no –one is following them .. and none of them in a hurry to follow. Now that looks bad and to top it off PR now gone bad.
The people at have Gone banana crazy mad to be throwing bananas at the general public when they are already seething mad with the shocking Westpac rate rise
Mr Rudd said the bank should take ‘‘a long hard look at itself’’
Her is the link to to Westpac Banana video below
Westpac points out it’s not the discount airline of banking, but comparing itself instead to a banana smoothie seller has done little to soothe its relationship with the Prime Minister.
Westpac remains unapologetic over raising its standard variable mortgage rate by nearly double last week’s official cash rate increase. The nation’s second largest bank told analysts on Monday that it was not the ‘‘Jetstar of banking’’.
But likening itself to businesses selling banana smoothies hit by rising fruit prices after storms decimated banana plantations has not impressed Kevin Rudd.
