Retail v online
Thank you David Regan!
We have just had the experience of purchasing a new car in Wagga and it seems that your summary of salespeople is most perceptive.
There was only one car dealership that actually wanted us to purchase a car from them.
In one dealership we went into, we had to find someone to help us out, then there seemed little interest in our needs.
We went back to the dealership whose salesperson had a real interest in her product, us the customers and the process of communicating!
She actually ‘sold’ us the car.
If sales people are not going to make an effort to sell - then online has the advantage.

Aftermath of Bank Royal Commission
Turnbull tried to stave off this commission but when it finally prevailed he, like a hypocrite, claimed credit for its success.
His turnaround was in spite of his cheating the ATO through the revelation of a certain tax haven which nefarious activities has been exposed.
The commission found that our financial institutions in dealing with a gullible public were actually stealing blatantly from them and thus simply breaking the law and as in the case of the AMP (in spite of 200 years of pretence of assuming goodwill) charging investors for services never even rendered.
They engage in a morality that can be likened to nothing less than be criminal action.
The commissions' action resulted in huge fines being imposed on the miscreants and large compensation to victims.
As investigation proceeded, superannuation came under scrutiny and found that management of same was also corrupt.
Many millions of dollars, it was revealed, was missing and also members contributions (10 per cent of income) were returning less than ordinary bank interest.
Not to mention the fact members monies can be withdrawn at any time, diminishing amounts that should be left for retirement when required (indeed the main purpose of the scheme). Another devious vote catcher.
As we saw, what ensued, as these crimes came to light, many of the institutions top brass resigned in disgrace, shame! Now, here is the inevitable crunch.
Before the commissions' expose, it’s obvious that the institution's lawless operations were necessary for their survival.
Now they are under surveillance, they cannot continue operations as before and as to the future, just how long can it be before the collapse of the entire system ensues?

Many people are asking what happened in the last week in our federal government. Has Australia become like the US where the Murdoch press has the say in who is the leader of our country?
Alan Jones and Ray Hadley are not members of any political party, so why is it that these hacks have so much say? Tony Abbott failed his own party when he was prime minister but the LNP has implemented all of his policies.
The people of Australia want our country back.
