Hear ye, hear ye. A tipster tells us that this flyer was sent out to residents of LNP MP Mal Brough’s electorate of Fisher recently. The locals were informed through a “national security update” that ASIO had more than 400 high-priority terrorist investigations on the go, and “our agencies” had thwarted three terrorist plots already this year. It also warns against the internet, as “the online environments has no borders. Propaganda is reaching directly into our homes and families through the internet and social media”. With subtle bold print there’s only a faint whiff of using fear to drive votes.
