NBN – Proceed at One Quarter Impulse, Ensign

Well, after 17 days in political limbo (and a period in which it could be argued that Australia saw more prosperity without an active government) it seems that Labor has scraped in. Some people are thrilled, others disappointed and some are still crying out for another vote. Whatever your point of view, this certainly is …
