In what seems to be a rather strange reversal of roles, the Labor Government in Victoria has announced a tax on electric cars and hybrid plug-in vehicles from July 2021 while a Federal Liberal MP, Trent Zimmerman, has penned an op-ed castigating both Victoria and South Australia for their plans to tax EVs.
Fibre to the premises will be available to about 75% of homes on the NBN, making a total of eight million in all, by the end of 2023, with the NBN Co to spend about $3.5 billion to upgrade connections, according to an announcement made on Wednesday.
Changes to the federal encryption law which was passed in December 2018 will take nearly two years to be voted on, according to the current state of play which was made clear after the Australian Labor Party introduced a bill this week seeking to speed up adoption of the changes.
The Australian Labor Party's obsession with neo-liberal economics has doomed the national broadband network right from the time it set up a separate company, NBN Co, in 2009 to build a country-wide network that would be unfit for purpose.

The Labor Party's communications spokesperson Michelle Rowland has taken aim at Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over the national broadband network rollout, pointing out that criticism of the network is now coming from his own side of politics.
An academic who was closely associated with the NBN project at its outset claims that the original fibre-to-the-premises proposal would have stimulated "an active competitive retail marketplace that would have forced RSPs to purchase adequate CVC".
The Australian Labor Party has termed the illegal accessing of a journalist's metadata by the Australian Federal Police as "shocking" and questioned why it was disclosed on a Friday afternoon when the Commonwealth Ombudsman was informed two days earlier.
