SO £20,000,000,000 for free internet if Labour win the election (not a great chance of that). Free really means paid for by the taxpayer. So not really all that free. Some folk saying it would actually cost £80,000,000,000.

It seems my provider suspended all UK investment yesterday morning as a result. Seems this is a bigger investment than Labour are promising for the health service, and will mean that millionaires and billionaires will get “free” internet access.

Don’t worry if your weans are hungry – they can play on the internet. Might be better to nationalise a supermarket chain and sell cut-price food.
