Here, perhaps, is something new in negative campaigning in Australia: a game offering you the opportunity to “whack” a Labor politician, courtesy of the Liberal Party. They’ve been kind enough to make it embeddable.
Will this work, or is it more a form of therapy for the Liberal faithful? And has anyone noticed an undercurrent of violence in the campaign this time around?
UPDATE: I was reminded on Twitter of this game from Labor. Also a little disturbing in wishing harm to the body of one’s opponent?
