Want to make the Tories spend more on their Henley campaign ?

It appears that the Tory candidate for Henley is making use of Google ads and his advert sometimes appears on this blog and other political blogs.

So ... if you are feeling naughty and want to cost the Tories a bit of cash, why not look through the ads on everyone's blogs and click on the ones from Henley Tories.

That should cost them a few quid.

P.S. Likewise, I would be stunned if anyone changed their vote by clicking on a paid for Google ad, so if tories click on the link to the Lib Dem candidate it might make the party realise this is a stunning waste of cash.

Only trouble is that Henley Lib Dems are also using Google ads, so why shouldn't the Tories do the same to us? And there's more of them than there are of us...

That would be "Click Fraud"!

I want a Lib Dem win but I dont think any of us would resort to such petty tactics.

The more people click on it, the more popular Google will think it is, and the more widely they will show it.

this idea is from the Mark Pack school of election ethics. Expected better from you, NB.

Mooism is right, but it would still be regarded as click fraud.

It makes the link seem more popular than it actually is, and costs the conservatives money for individuals who are not interested in their politics.

Despite it more likely helping the conservatives, it is illegal.

Click Fraud ? That well known crime of clicking on a link. I'd like to see someone try and convict someone for doing that.
