Remedial spelling for fun and profit

The next Australian federal election is still 12 months away, but already the parties are gearing up for the campaign. The other day I received a pamphlet from the Australian Labor Party, attacking the federal government for its cuts to health funding. 
It was printed and posted before the recent dumping of Tony Abbott as Prime Minister, so it's not their fault that this pamphlet is now out of date. I couldn't help but notice the misspelling of his surname. To my mind, lapses of attention to detail shake my confidence in a party's capacity to govern the nation competently.
