Remember that petition calling for the Liberal Party to bring back the fibre-to-the-home NBN plan? Turns out Coalition MP Malcolm Turnbull sort of responded to it today. You probably won’t like it if you’re a signatory to the petition.
In case you’re unaware of the petition, it’s currently being hosted on Change.org to get the Liberal Party to “reconsider [its] plan for a fibre-to-the-node national broadband network in favour of a fibre-to-the-home national broadband network”.
Concerned citizen, Phillip Tyson, asked Malcolm Turnbull to “reject” the Coalition’s NBN strategy, flashing the link to the petition as a lightning rod designed to force a backflip.
Turnbull responded with a glib one-liner:
@PhillipTyson wasn't there an election recently at which nbn policy was a key issue?
