A Communications Nightmare

Imagine if a political party were to decide that it is going to cost too much to upgrade the roads to allow for all the cars and trucks that will need to use them over the next few years. Instead they propose getting rid of all the cars and trucks and making everyone use a horse and cart instead. Then imagine that a stupid miscalculation means that there will be no budget for providing the carts and so everyone is going to have to scrap their cars and trucks and if they are really lucky they’ll get a horse to replace it with.

Can you imagine a political party proposing a policy like that for transport? Well one of the parties in Australia is running with an equivalent policy for communications in today’s election. If they win then Australia will be thrown back into the stone age in so far as communications is concerned.
