Remember National’s broadband ‘plan’ that reads like it was drawn up on the back of a napkin? Notice how the only gains they can point to from this plan to borrow $1.5 billion are better video conferencing (when was the last time the average worker used video conferencing?) and being able to download pirated movies in 7 seconds?
Like me you probably find it surprising to Key hear endorsing Internet pirating. But it begins to make sense when you hear that he came up with the idea for the broadband plan when it took five minutes to download his pirated copy of Coldplay’s ‘Clocks’ for his DVD.
[incidentally, remember how Key lied about the ‘Clocks’ fiasco, first saying it wasn’t ‘Clocks’ then saying he didn’t choose the song, despite the fact he had listed Coldplay as one of his favourite bands and used ‘Clocks’ as his song at the National conference? Well, last I heard National was in negotiations for a damages payment to Coldplay. Anyone know the outcome of that? And would a payment be counted as an election expense? I think it would]
