“The entire campaign now is about the Mediscare. Bill Shorten said that on Sunday, they’ve got nothing else. It’s all they have left. Must have been working for them, but I think they went to it too early, it’s threadbare now. Everyone’s seen through it. By the time Saturday comes around people will just be laughing at Bill Shorten.”

“Now a great swathe of red encircles Sydney where once were the marginal Liberal seats proudly claimed for ‘Howard’s battlers’ and kept in the family by Abbott.”

— Miranda Devine, Wednesday, July 6

Mr Shorten, anything to add?
