Slap Nigel Farage… virtually (2 million and counting)

Last week I had an idea for a wee online game/feature: the idea that we could (unscientifically) poll readers for/against Ukip by asking them to either slap Nigel Farage in the face or pat him on the back.

Surprisingly, the idea was approved and I got to make the widget. Here it is…

The widget is currently running on Herald Scotland and the This is Local London. So far the widget has racked up over 2 million slaps across the two sites.
