The NetAlert hotline: A Liberal waste of money

A NetAlert insider writes:

"To follow on from Wednesday's tip about the national internet safety hotline NetAlert please allow me to confirm that yes, it really has been pretty quiet here at safety central.

"It is my fourth day here and as yet I have only received one real call. Most people haven't even had that! There are about two hundred of us hired to man the phones, about one hundred on the shift at any one time and about 100% of us playing computer games (our computers are not internet-enabled), reading books, or talking eight hours of the day (and that's across from about 8.30am until 12.30 at night) ...

"Nice for our sense of pride in rightly spotting a cynical pre-election gimmick a mile away but really, a bit of a Liberal waste of money don't you think?"
