Government admits it only has half the money for superfast broadband

House of Parliament

 

Why do Governments never tell us the whole truth and then wonder why the voters are so cynical about politicians? As time goes on the current Government seem less and less different from it predecessors.

Jermery Hunt, the Culture Secretary, has admitted the Government has only half the money (£530m of the £1060m) that is needed for the superfast broadband expansion it was crowing so loadly about in December. It says the current budget crisis as a reason for this, and in its next breath says local authorities will need make up the balance – in a time of reduced budgets. Somethings never change. One day we might have government which tells us the truth – but then pigs will be flying as well!
