The national broadband plan…

… has been changed again.

It seems all the tenders were sufficiently non-compliant that the government has decided to do it themselves.

Oh. Dear.

The government once had a company to do all this, with the technical know-how. Howard flogged it off. It’s called Telstra – aka still the Elephant In The Room.

Mixing technology and politicians is like mixing oil and water… they dont go, all you get is a rainbow sheen of reflected bullshit.

Yes, I can’t wait to see what those who think fitering the Internet is a good idea, end up coming up with.

I personally would like to know on what grounds speficially, the Rudd Government decided the tenders weren’t worth pursuing. And I don’t mean what they say in the boilerplate addresses to the press. :-)
