For decades governments of all persuasions have made public policy choices on behalf of Tasmanians that benefit the few rather than the many. The vested interest, not the public interest.
“True leadership places the public interest above the vested interests and we finally saw this start to happen in yesterday’s statement.”
The ADII 2017 points to clear lines along which the digital divide runs in Tasmania: If you are on a low income, are older, haven’t completed secondary school and/or are not in paid employment, you are being left behind.
