    :O

    That is vile..... Unbelievable!! I too am completely lost for words.

    Just to note though...I don't think this was endorsed by the Liberal party. There doesn't seem to be any particular party taking credit for it. It doesn't say anything about "vote 1 for Liberal" etc, just to put Labor last.

    Not defending Liberal (I despise them!), but I'm not certain that this particular campaign is run by them? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Absolutely despicable *shakes head in disgust*. I cannot believe that there are actually people who still feel this way...

    Just found this... http://theantibogan.wordpress.com/

    "The flyer carries no party endorsement and no authorisation, hence it is illegal under the Commonwealth Electoral Act."

    So, so wrong

    Was it the Libs though? There doesn't seem to be anyone claiming responsibility for it.

    ETA: I googled the address of the 'authorised by...' and it is the National Civic Council. Their blurb states, "Defending Life, Supporting the family, Assisting small business, Promoting the national interest, Fostering Judeo-Christian values"

    Vile but yeah, not a liberal flyer. Gavan Duffy is a candidate for Katter's Australian Party in the electorate of Algester in Queensland by the looks of it.

    Atropos that's a hell of an assumption to make that it came from liberals. There is no identity on this pamphlet!

    Very unlike you to jump to conclusions.

    I just realised I misread it- it doesn't specify the Libs! My bad

    It is, however, disgusting!

    As I just said, I misread part of it.
