On RN Drive yesterday Andrew Robb made the extraordinary statement that spending on its inferior NBN is capped. Which means that in the event of cost blowouts it will not be completed.
Now Robb also says that he guarantees that the coalition’s almost-redundant-now NBN will be completed within the allocated budget. But asked by Waleed Aly what the LNP would do if there were cost blow outs, Robb just said to closely paraphrase spending is capped – contractors will simply need to make adjustments.
So, the LNP is not serious about building a NBN. Not even its near useless parody of one, of the type which is already being ripped up and replaced in Germany, the UK and New Zealand.
All major projects face cost blowouts.
Rob has guaranteed non-completion of the NBN.
