I seem to recall Tony Blair stating that everyone in the country would have super-fast broadband, when and while he was in power?.

When the Chancellor said they would fund it - don't suppose there's any chance he meant that they would pay our ISP monthly charge? 8->

Is there any chance of you responding to the substance of the thread, rather than just posting some knee-jerk, politically biased waffle?
