And as evidenced by the above AC...
...they post drivel on these pages.
The voters in the yellow corner have seen through those in the Green corner as a bunch of raving anti-development nutters, to lift a quote from Ford Prefect. Hmm, in fact, Goldafrincham would be just the place for those Greens.
In the Red corner we see the reason for the red - spilled ink from the Treasury Budget papers, as our ranga of a PM spends money we don't have, on a new service we don't need (since it's already available cheaper) AND wants to pay Telstra to remove all the existing copper so we can't use our democratic freedom (what's that, grandad? Something we lost a long time ago, sonshine!) to not buy into the new service if we don't see a need for it. Some of us simply like the idea of a POTS (plain old telephone service), in much the same way that we like the old-fashioned idea of walking to the corner shop instead of driving as the 'merkans do.
In the Blue corner the Opposition suffers the slings and arrows of outrageously lazy journalists who accuse them of opposing (hey, you mad lot, it's in their job title). Meanwhile they ask the government politely for a business plan demonstrating the putative viability of said NBN. Since the government has steadfastly declined to open the kimono, one is left with the distinct impression that the Opposition has a point, and that at $AUD43 Billion gross (plus interest, to be paid for by 24 million population) NBN may stand for NOT BLOODY NEEDED.
