Malcolm’s mates release another dodgy report

Look at what has just fallen off the back of a truck.

Later tonight, Malcolm Turnbull will release another report into the NBN—the National Broadband Network Market and Regulatory Report.

This one recommends:

• a new tax on developers that will be passed on to homeowners and increase new home prices

• scrapping the cross subsidy for the bush—which could lead to higher prices for people in the bush

• that NBN Co be effectively abolished and chopped into a number of different companies

• that companies like TPG be allowed to compete with NBN Co and potentially cut the revenue NBN Co makes by up to 10%.

Malcolm Turnbull needs to rule out these bad taxes and bad ideas tonight.

People buying new homes should not have to pay a new NBN tax.

People in the bush shouldn’t have to pay more than people in the cities to access the NBN.

Cutting NBN Co into a number of different companies will just slow down the rollout of the NBN.

There have now been almost as many inquiries into the NBN as there were into who shot JFK.

Malcolm Turnbull now has six reviews and no excuses.

He should get on with it, stop complaining, and build the NBN.
