A grown adult, a married man, a blogger who just wants to run his business and do what people do online. I give you Blair Mulholland, who -- while Steven Joyce promises the earth and a whole new bureaucracy this morning (unless you live on the West Coast) -- is reduced to blogging from his Mother's computer, and from the free ones at the Whangaparaoa Library because, because . . . well, let Blair tell you:
Remember when the government effectively nationalised Telecom's network and you all cheered? You're paying for that now with reduced property rights protection and decreased service, just as you'll be paying for National's promises with money that could have been spent on tax cuts.
If telecommunications companies think someone is going to steal their networks,
they won't build any more of them! It's really simple. Now we are stuck with
waiting for the government to waste my tax money building something that every
private interest is now too scared to.
