Get the real news behind the doublespeak with the Shovel's Australian politics translator for Chrome

The Shovel's election translator helps you cut through the crap and get to the core of what politicians really mean. Thanks to this translator you can see terms like 'house prices', 'Malcolm Turnbull' and 'Christopher Pyne' magically transformed into 'avocado prices', 'Richy McRichface' and 'the most annoying man in the world'. Developed specifically with an Australia audience in mind, this is the perfect tool to help voters get through the 2016 election campaign without going crazy.

Not working! No issues with the Drumpfinator, so why isn't this one working? (Definitely enabled! Tried closing/reopening Chrome and full reboot of PC, no luck.) EDIT: Huzzah! Working perfectly now!

Very good on news sites. Also use it to decipher non news websites like the Australian Electoral Commission voting instruction web pages.
