Pirate Party slams Government broadband strategy

Wednesday, 7 December, 2011 - 23:00

THE PIRATE PARTY has hit out at the Government, saying that its professed strategy to provide broadband for all is contradicted by its Digital Economy Act (DEA).

Pirate Party UK leader Loz Kaye told The INQUIRER, "The coalition can not on one hand call the Internet 'the fourth utility', and on the other support legislation like the Digital Economy Act which threatens to cut whole households from the web."

He added, "Digital exclusion will add another layer of poverty to already struggling neighbourhoods in the UK, and cement poor education outcomes."
