GASH DISAPPOINTED OVER LABOR NBN BACKFLIP
Gilmore MP, Joanna Gash is disappointed over Labor’s decision to back flip on the rollout of the National Broadband Network (NBN).
Mrs Gash was commenting on the recently announced decision to now only connect optical fibre to villages with more than 1000 dwellings, rather than villages with more 1000 people - as was promised before the 2010 Federal Election.
The decision means that many Gilmore villages, like Callala Bay with more than 1000 residents, but less than 1000 dwellings, are now subject to yet another election betrayal from the Gillard Labor Government.
“Just like the promise of ‘no Carbon Tax’, Labor has now backtracked on its NBN election pledge, hanging many rural and regional voters out to dry,” Mrs Gash said.
“It’s becoming more and more clear that Labor is now just pandering to its metropolitan constituency at the expense of anyone living in a rural or regional area.
“Labor went into the 2010 election promising that there would be no Carbon Tax - look how that turned out.
“I can’t help but wonder how many more back flips we’ll see from Labor before the next Federal Election.
Mrs Gash urged residents of smaller villages to write to the Prime Minister to express their outrage over the sudden exclusion of their homes from an NBN fibre optic broadband connection.
“It’s time to let the Prime Minister well and truly know that Australians won’t stand for another election lie,” Mrs Gash said
