What is it with Australia Post? Despite having some the highest paid executives in the country, all it can come up with in the face of decreasing mail volumes is to jack up the prices. Duh! When’s the last time you heard them float any alternative, a cost efficiency or a different way of operating? It’s not rocket science, but I reckon instead of relying on a two-tier speed system whey don’t we explore having mail delivered to a post office, followed by an SMS notification that its there and you go and pick it up? Anyone that wants it delivered to their door pays the cost that entails. The elderly and infirm can be subsidised by the government.

Sure it’s not perfect but at least it’s an alternative. Let’s hear some others. And sign the petition.
