Liberal director Tony Nutt slams Mediscare

LIBERAL Party federal director Tony Nutt has slammed Labor's election campaign on Medicare privatisation, describing it as a "cold-blooded lie” and "new low” in Australian politics.

"The really outrageous aspect of the Mediscare was that it was coldly, ruthlessly and callously targeted at vulnerable Australians,” Mr Nutt said in an address to the National Press Club in Canberra.

"The Mediscare campaign affected votes and seats and contributed to the defeat of a number of MPs ... I call on the Labor Party to pledge to never again behave in that way and use those tactics.”
