First anniversary of Abbott and Turnbull’s great NBN broken promise

Today is the first anniversary of Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull’s broken promise to give all Australians access to 25 Mbps by 2016.

Tony Abbott promised at the launch of his NBN policy that:

“Under the Coalition, by 2016…there will be minimum download speeds of 25 megabits… We will deliver a minimum of 25 megabits…by the end of our first term.”

On the night of the election Tony Abbott also wrote an open letter to the Australian people that was published in news.com.au. In it he said:

“I want our NBN to be rolled out within three years and Malcolm Turnbull is the right person to make this happen.”

Well so much for that.

A year ago today Malcolm Turnbull announced that the Abbott Government was breaking this promise.

Little did we know that this would be the first of a long list of broken promises. Over the last 12 months Tony Abbott has broken promises like they are plates at a Greek wedding.

Today’s anniversary comes just one day after Tony Abbott broke another promise again, his promise that there would be no new taxes. Yesterday Malcolm Turnbull announced a new $900 NBN tax on new homes.

No wonder people don’t trust the Prime Minister and don’t trust this government. They are sick of the lies and sick of the constant broken promises.
