Another Labor millstone

"Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has admitted it was a "big mistake" to set up a new company to build the National Broadband Network, adding that Labor left the Coalition a "calamitous train wreck".

Mr Turnbull was questioned about the NBN this morning after Four Corners reported the troubled rollout was creating a digital divide across Australia, with some households saddled with older technology such as copper phone wire and pay TV cables, and unable to access the high speeds they are paying for.

The Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman also revealed an almost 160 per cent increase in NBN complaints over the past financial year. "


----------------------------------------

Stephen Conroy and Greg Combet's "back of the envelope" scheme. What a shemozzle.  Rolling Eyes

And there's a very strong chance the voters will put the Pinkos back in power in a couple of years, FFS. God help us.

Astro Boy has charges upgraded

"A charge against the Hobart DJ accused of headbutting former prime minister Tony Abbott has been upgraded to one that carries a 10-year jail term.

Astro Labe, 38, was charged with common assault after a September 21 incident on Hobart's waterfront.

The charge has now been amended to causing harm to a Commonwealth public official.

Mr Labe appeared briefly in the Hobart Magistrates Court on Monday morning.

He did not enter a plea and his bail was continued.

At the time of the incident, Mr Abbott told the media the attacker was wearing a "Vote Yes" badge."

He looks like a rad red lefty dickhead arseclown.

The biggest problem was the stoopid constraint to have it "off budget" and that everyone in Aust got it. That stuffed up any opportunity the NBN had of being a genuine nation-advancing project. FTTP for every city and town with a population of over, say, 30,000 (ie Devonport) would have been a great outcome.

The carbon tax was bipartisan. Sadly it wasn't the two main parties.

My Mum has the NBN on and has had no problems, so connect away, Mr Dog. The big issue I see emerging is that all land lines will eventually go through NBN routers, and when there is a blackout, you lose your phone. Old landlines were self-powered.

Not such a massive problem if you have a mobile signal, but the older generation ("I don't want one of those new fangled mobile phones, thanks") may have dramas.

I am currently very happy with my broadband service, but fear that once the NBN is connected in my area (2019) I may have to pay more for an inferior service.

They are only bipartisan in tugging the forelock to USA when it comes to nation wrecking, eg ljh and Beasley on Iraq.

No argument from me, h. The Libs have been quite appalling under Turncoat. It's dismal and dismaying.

At least with Abbott at the helm there was some policy, fight and direction.
