In his BBC London interview Ken Livingstone said “When I was leader of the GLC I said to Mrs Thatcher we needed broadband linking every home and City in the country”. Wow, what a visionary.
Seeing as the GLC was abolished in 1986 and the technology behind Broadband wasn’t live before 1990 and the term wasn’t used until the early 2000s Livingstone should have left politics and got into the technology sector. With that kind of “well ahead of the market” thinking he could have made a fortune.
Or maybe he’s just talking a load of rubbish again.
