First the fluff:
Britain’s opposition Labour Party called on Prime Minister David Cameron to spend as much as 4 billion pounds ($6.5 billion) from the sale of the fourth- generation mobile-phone spectrum to fund housing.
That’s Ed Balls, still stinking up the place despite advising Gordon Brown to drive the British economy into ruins. Forget housing, that’s a rubbish idea. I want to know about this 4G government boot sale. I get the idea that it’s some next gen, mobile comms standards thing. The question really is, if the government is selling it, how did it come to own it? And if, in fact, it’s flogging/auctioning licences to use the spectrum, again – how did the state come to own it in the first place?
