Well, I propose that we refer to him as ‘Mr Broadband’ from now on in all our missives, messages into the List, and  conversations from others with others from now on.

Because if we refer to him as ‘the Prime Minister’ or ‘Mr Turnbull’ he’ll just weasel his way out of any responsibility for this $60 (but more probably $100) billion debacle and White Elephant, which will probably have to be redone from scratch the day after it is ‘complete’.

And I don’t want to see that happen. I want Turnbull, Abbott, Hockey and the troglodytic LNP to be remembered as utter failures, and testaments to how political expediency and stupidity triumphed during their reign, and left this country unprepared for the challenges that even Blind Freddie could have foreseen were coming down on us like a train …

Kazakhstan guarantees their citizens 100 Mbs over fibre for God’s sake, but in Australia we have problems realising that the 25Mbs they are shooting for (but won’t guarantee because they don’t know that it will get there) in 7 years time won’t be enough.

Yes, I want Turnbull, Abbott, Hockey and the LNP to be forever remembered for this disaster … and not to be allowed to weasel out from under the accountability and responsibility that is so manifestly theirs.

‘Agile’ my ass!

Just my 2 cents worth …
