The banner was posted on the Liberal Party of Australia’s Facebook page yesterday and was ‘liked’ by more than 680 people.

 

What this liberal ad did ?

  • "Putting boat people and crime in the same sentenceā€
  • Accompanying the text is an image of a boat at sea and a picture of police crime scene tape

The majority of the more than 430 comments on face book were critical of the ad, but others showed support or sought to explain the ad’s meaning.
