Tories backtrack on broadband

THE GLOROUS RAINBOW ALLIANCE of the Tories and Liberal Democrats has decided that the great unwashed do not really need broadband after all.

Having previously believed that it could get big business to pay for connecting broadband to small rural communities, the government has finally admitted that its chums in the telecom industry laughed at the suggestion.


Again I repeat the only way we will get a fast broadband infastructure is to nationalise Openreach and pay for it from taxes.
