Hello, I just had to explain that I did this cartoon before the Medivac bill was passed and it wasn't certain that it had Labor support. Happily it turns out the depiction of Bill Shorten wasn't fair after all so the cartoon's a tad redundant. However my comment on the media viewing this as issue as political sport still stands (and sadly will probably be true again). Anyway, seeing as I"ve already done my cartoon, I'll say this in words: hooray for the Medivac Bill and all who helped it pass, and good on Speaker Tony Smith who proved himself a man of integrity in the HOR.
