Saying it was starting to get in the way of his day-to-day tasks, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has asked Labor strategists if there’s still any need to shout Medicare! at arbitrary moments throughout his day.
“It’s really hard to have a conversation – Medicare! – with my wife for example. Medicare!” Shorten told advisors.
“I mean, people have – Medicare! – voted now, and obviously a lot of them – Medicare! – have fallen for this Medicare thing. But there’s not much more we can do now is there? Medicare! Medicare! Medicare! Oh, for Christ sake”.
