Sale of Australia Post would be just plain dumb

The Liberals have already proved their policies at the 2013 federal election were a smokescreen to dupe the people of Australia.

But to now be considering the sell off of Australia Post is nothing short of disgraceful.

Australia Post is a proud organisation owned by the people of Australia

The origins of postage in Australia pre-date federation. Originally known as the PMG (Post Master General's Department), Australia Post was formally created in 1975 when the PMG was split in two, including Telecom Australia which was later renamed Telstra.

To sell the nation's postal authority would be one of the dumbest things the Liberals under Tony Abbott could ever dream up.

Imagine if these political troglodytes ever got control of the senate.
