“Australia Post said it had no record of Mr Bourne’s complaint,” which I believe is precisely Mr Bourne’s point about being “ignored”.

“Australia Post would like to reassure Click & Send customers that at no stage were their financial details compromised.” And the rest?

A naive person might ask, @barryofarrell, whether that might not be sufficient prima facie evidence to launch a corruption investigation.

via Janetter for Mac

Something bugs me, @barryofarrell. NSW is rich, Sydney a rich city. Taxes go in, no transport systems come out. So where does the money go?

via Janetter for Mac

So @barryofarrell CAN run a proper NSW government, one that fucks up transport planning just like the all rest. Good. smh.com.au/nsw/crush-hour…
