A Tasmanian Labor leadership hopeful says the party needs to “stop the domination of the hard left” in order to be competitive at the next election.
AAP reports that Braddon MP Shane Broad and former deputy David O’Byrne will contest a party ballot for the top job after Rebecca White decided to step down at the weekend.
“The only way to win votes off the Liberals is from the centre of the political spectrum. That’s why I’m putting my hat in the ring.
“There needs to be a rallying cry for the centre of the Labor Party to get active and to stop what is the domination of a hard left faction group of powerbrokers that I believe have delivered three election losses.”
“I learned a lesson a very long time ago on the school bus. The only way to stand up to bullies is to start swinging.
“You might cop a few hits but the bullies will think twice next time.”
People who want to connect to the NBN but live in an area where they’re connected by the former Foxtel or Optus cables will be waiting even longer to be connected.
In February, NBN Co paused new connections for hybrid fibre coaxial network areas due to the global chip shortage meaning the company did not have enough supply of modems.
We apologise to new customers that have been waiting to connect to the network. We have worked hard to resolve the supply-chain issues that were affecting the delivery of new HFC modems, and we are sorry for these matters that have created a new delay.
We will continue to communicate our progress and planned recommencement date for HFC new connection orders to internet retailers and customers as soon as possible. We thank retailers and customers for their patience while we work to resolve these outstanding issues.
