The National Party has released an attack ad in which independent candidate for New England, Tony Windsor, is painted as a cheating boyfriend.
The ad starts with two women enjoying a coffee in a local cafe, when the blonde woman receives a text and exclaims, "Look, it's Tony again".
Curly Hair replies, "Tony Windsor? What does he want?"
"Well, it was okay for a time, I guess ... ", Blonde Ex says.
"It won't be any different this time," Blonde Ex muses.
The two then share a giggle and a quick side tongue as they text back: "Not this time, Tony".
Windsor has responded by sending this tweet, which is as shady as all get out.
