Indonesian MP Tantowi Yahya says Coalition's asylum seeker boat policy is 'illegal, offensive and an affront to democracy'
The long-held vision dreamt up by senior Labor politicians Stephen Conroy and Kevin Rudd in 2009 of a universal fibre broadband network covering Australia is officially dead, with a solid election victory set to sweep the Coalition into power and a technically inferior fibre to the node plan into Australia’s streets.
Although the return of Kevin Rudd to the Prime Ministership several months ago gave the Australian Labor Party a significant boost in national polling at that stage, exit polling throughout Australia today has shown a clear and decisive victory for the Coalition. Respected ABC election analyst Antony Green called the Federal Election for the Coalition earlier tonight, and other major media outlets have followed.
At this stage it appears as though the Coalition will enjoy a sizable majority of close to 40 seats in the House of Representatives which, historical results suggest would mean it would be likely to maintain two terms in power. The situation is much less clearer in the Senate as Senate results take significantly longer to tabulate than results in the lower house.
Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s seat of Wentworth — one of the safest Liberal seats in the country — is also seeing a minor swing towards Turnbull, meaning it is likely that Turnbull will be appointed Communications Minister in a new administration led by Tony Abbott, as the Opposition Leader has publicly intimated several times.
The news will have immediate and drastic consequences for Labor’s NBN project, which the Rudd and Gillard administrations have pursued as one of the Federal Government’s major projects in its current form since mid-2009.
Turnbull has consistently stated that the Coalition plans to “complete” Labor’s NBN vision more rapidly and more cheaply than Labor itself could. However, the Coalition’s NBN alternative is largely based on radically different technology than Labor’s vision, and will deliver vastly reduced broadband service delivery outcomes to many Australians.

This article highlights the issue of clashing political policy between the Labor and Liberal parties on the topic of the proposed NBN which is currently underway. In the article, it is drawn to our attention that Labor's 'vision' for nation-wide fast broadband networks is sinking faster than the Titanic. This has occurred as the newly-elected Liberal government has recently announced its desire to complete the almost-finished project in a way that prevents further money being wasted on this seemingly futile project. Prime Minister Tony Abbott believes this project did little to improve the state of the Australian economy, as Labor previously claimed, but rather forced the country into a worse state of debt than before.
This article discusses how Labor's National Broadband Network dream is over after it's defeat to the Coalition.
