Is Ned Kelly running Australia Post
Mail is something we can't do without.
It should remain in government hands.
Australia post is still alive but can't survive unless they remove the five day deliveries, twice a week would be a way to save, even country people would probably accept two day deliveries.
As far as increasing the price of letter postage, this is a no brainer, all it would do is force people to look for alternatives, maybe that is their real aim.
Snail mail may well be loosing money at present, however many snail people(old) can not use the alternative digital system.
Until such time most people are digitally literate it must be maintained.
Mail is still an essential service and should not be sacrificed for the mighty dollar
