Federal election 2016: TV ad doctor is political activist

Federal election 2016: TV ad doctor is political activist, by Sharri Markson.

The doctor who fronts the ACTU- funded Medicare television advertisement saying he is not a member of a political party has been a left-wing political activist for 40 years.

Drummoyne Medical Centre’s Robert Marr, who appears in the advertisement claiming there will be healthcare cuts under the Turnbull government, has a long history of political campaigning, including calling for John Howard to be investigated by the International Criminal Court for sending Australian troops to Iraq, lobbying against the Coalition in the 1993 federal election and arguing against private health insurance.

Standards of truth obviously coming second behind the PC crew’s need to fuel the narrative. Deceptive, lawyerly wordsmithing is so typical of them.
