Will this Campaign Ever End?

For the 15,676,659 Australians enrolled to vote there was no avoiding the constant barrage of political ads. The parties spent millions of dollars extolling their own policies and lambasting their opponents through television, radio, social media and the press, as well as billboards and mailboxing. Well before election day many felt that a point of diminishing returns had been passed.
