LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said a pre-election promise by the opposition Labour Party to nationalise telecoms provider BT's BT.L fixed line network to provide free full-fibre broadband for all is a "crackpot scheme."
“What we won’t be doing is some crackpot scheme that would involve many, many tens of billions of taxpayers’ money nationalising a British business,” Johnson told BBC radio.
