Labour promising a Tory dream

For my British friends: Labour promising to nationalise broadband is a true Tory dream, not nightmare.

On the surface, this is classic left-wing, socialising a utility to provide equal access for all. I think there are good arguments for ensuring a solid infrastructure in a nation that goes beyond left-wing politics, but of course one-solution-for-all tends to be a poor solution. Should we give them the benefit of the doubt?

Then, in a few years the Tories will be back in power and will now have complete and absolute control access to all logs, all DNS requests and all meta data of every single Briton on the internet. That porn block they had to scrap? No problem, the government now controls all electronic communication.
