No, it's not Conroy. He's scheme is not off the ground yet - the 
election has put his brainless scam on hold.

This whole thing started years ago - you know where - because of 
"national security".

Well, I actually tend to agree with him on this one. Not as a blanket 
measure, but it should be controlled.

Every kid and his dog now has a computer - even laptops, so why should 
they get a laptop which they will use for a very short time while at 
school, and which is obsolete even before s/he even gets it? Not to 
mention that they come preloaded with you know what for which the 
government is paying millions of dollars in licence fees? (There are 
also conditions attached to the use of these laptops.)

No, if these lapwarmers were to be directed solely at the outback kids 
then maybe the scheme would be worth it......
