succinctly - He never went to 1996 election with a GST. He went to 1998 election having spent 4 months promoting it to us as policy.
May 1995 - "nothing remotely resembling it" (john hewsons gst) would be Coalition policy in the 1996 campaign.
May 1995 Press conference - "There's no way a GST will ever be part of our policy." .... "Never ever. It's dead. It was killed by voters at the last election." John Howard
June 1995 business luncheon - " We would occasionally like to win, you know. The fact is the last election was a referendum on the GST. There is no way we can have it as part of our policy for the next election. As to what happens some years in the future, I don't know. But the GST cause was lost in the last election ..." John Howard.
Been called on it and have to face the fact that you are the liar here....I actually had a you tube video of little Johnny saying there will never be a GST it is not policy, but they other guy made you pull your head in so that is that... Howard lied, and so did you!

Clear your mind of all the sh1t you think you know.

70% of Australians will only be able to afford 25mbps plan.
Almost every business group has now said there is no financial business savings from the NBN.

Data will only travel as fast as the slowest link. Av. Internet speed in & out of Australia 4.7mbps - increased less than 1% last 18 month despite new international fibre cable laid.

Servers are built for volume not speed and aren't offering gigabyte speed and many don't even offer megabyte speed - and that assumes traffic is low so there is no lag. Average new commercial servers in the world upload at 100mbs max with next to 0 traffic - but average only 7mbps due to traffic. Sometimes this is as low as 700kbps if traffic is extremely heavy.

And anything you ever download going through a UK server or node will never be faster than 100mbps.

South Korea & Japan with the most extensive & fastest FTTH yet internet speed averages just 39.2mbps.

Internet nodes congest quickly & regulary during peak times slow to under 1mbps speeds.

As for copper::(which I'm not for BTW)

Japanese & South Korea homes outside the metropolis's have the last yards copper system (VDSL) & are getting up to 80mbps averaging 24mbps. This is what the LNP policy is I think. VDSL2 is around 30% faster.

South Africa are upgrading their VDSL from 20mbps (since 2006) to 40mbps by end 2014. We are on 6mbps. Israel VDSL2 offers plans for up to 100mbps for a couple of years now. More than 70 countries offer internet speeds over 25mbps on copper including backward countries like Poland, Romania, Hungary. 32 countries offer over 50mbps on copper. Jungle dwellers of Brazil will soon have faster internet speed than 99% of Australians.

44% of 1st world people now access internet by wireless. By 2016 that will pass 50%. Av 4g wireless internet speed 32.2mbps. Some countries 45.6mbps - faster than the 1st 2 options of the NBN. No need to be at home to access internet or have a home & mobile account. And with 44% of Japanese already on wireless broadband that would dispel the myth there isn't enough frequency width for wireless here.

In 1997 if KRudd upgraded hardware in exchanges every Australian could be on min 40mbps fixed connection & 30mbps wireless today for less than $2b.

Post the clip dumb@rse with the journalists question and remove the sh1t between your ears & listen.

Howards was clearly asked if he would introduce a GST if he won the election (1996). Did he? No - he "never ever" did. Did he give you all the details before letting you decide on it in 1998? Yes. Did he not say in the 1996 campaign he would look at tax reform down the track? Yes. Why couldn't the ALP kill it? Because the indirect tax review was a revamp of Paul Keatings review 5/6 years earlier that also recommended a consumption tax.

Almost every business group has now said there is no financial business savings from the NBN.
Fact:1.(quoted) The South Korean government has encouraged its citizens to get computers and to hook up to high-speed Internet connections by subsidizing the price of connections for low-income and traditionally unconnected people.
One program, for example, hooked up housewives with broadband and taught them how to make use of the Web in their everyday lives.
Fact:2.(quoted)South Korea has more competition between broadband carriers than any other country in the world.
Fact: 3 (quoted)Open network system.There is vigorous debate in the telecommunications world about the role "open networks" have in creating fast, cheap Internet connections.
The idea behind an "open" system is essentially that, for a fee, broadband providers must share the cables that carry Internet signals into people's homes.
Companies that build those lines typically oppose this sharing. A number of governments, including South Korea and Japan and several European countries, have experimented with or embraced infrastructure-sharing as a way to get new companies to compete in the broadband market.
Fact:4.(quoted) South Korea, with more than 1,200 people per square mile, is a lot denser than the United States, where 88 people live in the same amount of space, and where rural areas and suburbs are large.
The result for broadband? It costs less to set up Internet infrastructure in a tightly populated place filled with high-rise-apartments, such as South Korea, than it does in the United States and Australia, where rural homes can be great distances apart.
Fact:5.(quoted) "Korea has long been a leader in broadband and in very fast broadband, in fact, the technology that Korea has used for probably the past four to five years is VDSL, and that's a technology that's now being put in by AT&T" in the United States.
Meanwhile, Korea is abandoning that technology in favour of the next big thing. That likely involves bringing .....super-fast fiber optic cables straight into homes...... according to a recent report by the Berkman Center, that could make South Korean Internet 10 times faster than it is now.
