While the Federal Communications Minister, Senator Coonan, is busy promoting the government’s proposed media ownership changes, Australia Post, another of her responsibilities, continues to stray further from the functions allowed for under the Act. Their April catalogue (click on the picture below) offers a teddy bear, laser printers, home office stationery, pens and plenty of other items small business newsagents and small business photo shops sell. There is little in the way of postal related product.

Government owned Australia Post retail outlets are hurting small business with catalogues like this and it is an indictment against the government that it allows its corporation to operate unchecked in this way.
