I’m speechless

“Upgrading rural broadband is a waste of taxpayers’ money because only rich people live in the countryside and all they will use it for is internet shopping.”
So says labour MP Graham Jones, according to the Telegraph.
What shocking arrogance and prejudice, even if it were true. The countryside has worse poverty than the city, so his argument is just wrong.
And what would Jones say if someone argued against broadband on housing estates because it was mostly used for online poker and porn?
How did the fool get himself elected?
