MEDIA RELEASE - MALCOLM TURNBULL HAS PURCHASED 15 MILLION METRES OF COPPER FOR THE NBN - 17 MAY 2017

He is a self-proclaimed innovation Prime Minister.

Tony Abbott refers to him as the man who “invented the internet”.

Who might this be you ask?

We are of course referring to Malcolm Turnbull – the bloke who has now purchased 15,051 km of copper for his NBN rollout to date.

That is 15 million metres of copper. Enough to wrap around Australia.

This copper splurge represents a growth rate of 736% from Mr Turnbull’s 1,800 km tally in October 2015.

You can’t make this stuff up.

This figure was finally revealed last night by NBN Co in response to a question from Senator Urquhart that was already 18 days overdue.

Malcolm Turnbull’s use of taxpayer funds on last century's copper is yet another indictment of his failed second-rate NBN. 

For now only one question remains – what else can you do with 15 million metres of Malcolm’s copper?
