Politician tells doctors to butt out of public policy

A federal politician has hit out at the medical profession over Sydney’s controversial lockout laws, saying he is sick of doctors influencing public policy by “whingeing”.

In an opinion piece in today’s Australian Financial Review, Liberal Democrats senator David Leyonhjelm strongly condemns Sydney’s controversial lockout laws and hits out at doctors who “whine” about having to treat victims of alcohol-related violence.
