Default Is Turnbull up to the job?

He is in charge of Telecommunications, the ABC and Australia Post.

Apart from the ABC (which is really just a noise source) these are
arguably the important industries for Australia in a digital world.

Telecommunications: He wasted a whole year on a commission of audit and
then entrenched NBNCo's monopoly - a policy more consistent with his
admirers on the left. True-blue Libs are fuming, progress is delayed and
Tony Abbott gets the blame.

ABC: He should have fired Scott for waiting until after the election to
release the Indonesian spy scandal news provided by his "bromance"
partner at The Guardian. Who gets the flak? Tony Abbott.

Australia Post: Australia Post's chief wants to lower standards & raise
the price of a letter by 66% to $1.00, making all sorts of excuses.
Meanwhile the government monopoly is *using* the letter delivery network
to cross-subsidise parcels to the detriment of more efficient competitors.

Listen to this:

Last November:
"Australia Post chief executive Ahmed Fahour has urged the federal
government to allow the agency to immediately lift prices and lower
service standards, warning that the clock is ticking for the agency’s
36,000 employees and 2900 licensed post offices.

Standard & Poor’s has put Australia Post on notice of a credit downgrade
before Christmas, after losses in its letters business caused a net loss
in the second half of last financial year for the first time since the
business was corporatised in 1989".
http://www.afr.com/p/national/austra...sYqG7Taj Ep1H

Yet, it makes a profit in the parcel business *and* undercuts
competitors considerably.

Hello? Is Mr Turnbull at home?


"'Our year-to-date performance is already down 50 per cent for the whole
company. The parcels business is going great, it is just that the size
of the loses[sic] in letters is so overwhelming that it is just sucking
everything into it', Mr Fahour told the Senate’s communications
committee on Thursday".

Great, it should be split, so he doesn't cross-subsidise using the
monopoly power granted by the commonwealth.

"'This business is disappearing before our eyes', he later added".

Well duh! It's called the Internet.

And this guy is paid *ten* *times* the amount paid to the head of the US
Postal Service which is 20 times the size *and* which delivers letter
cheaper!


"Mr Fahour has asked Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull to present
a rescue package to cabinet before Christmas, including a two-tiered
system for mail and flexible pricing for delivery services".

Nah. Mr Turnbull is too busy with other matters.


"Mr Fahour pointed to recent price rises for stamps in the UK and Canada
and said Australia Post should be entitled to recover its 'good, fair
costs' from the 97 per cent of letters delivered on behalf of government
and corporations".

Misleading. Strange that he didn't mention the *falling* price of
parcels, nor the price of letters in the US where next-day delivery is
becoming the norm.

What needs to happen:
1. Split Australia Post into parcels & letters divisions.

2. Create a wholesale Australia Parcel post (like an NBN) which will
deliver parcels on behalf of retail service providers.

3. Get a new CEO, offer one-tenth of the salary. This guy is paid too
much and he has no ideas.

4. Put another minister in charge of Australia Post. Why are so many
important things given to Turnbull? Clear he can't handle his portfolio.

Is this what woke up Mr Fahour?

"Pack & Send is in talks with retailers to open 500 delivery points by
mid 2015, which will see the business take a chunk out of the only
growing division of Australia Post".

http://www.afr.com/p/business/enterp...Vtbx d3hoMVGL

Yet Aussie Post wants to lower standards of *letters* and raise prices,
while overnight parcel delivery in the US is becoming the norm.

Need a new CEO.

Need a new Communications minister.

AusPost should be split into retail & wholesale and opened up to
competition. The infrastructure is a national resource just like
telecommunications - whether privately owned or government-owned it must
be made *available*.

Be careful what you say about Turnbull,
He will soon be your next master even if only temporary until the next
election.

Foster, in a move that the Ministry of Truth would be proud of , will
seamlessly move his support to Turmball denying he ever said anything
against him.
