Price of a beer rises again. :(
Yes, I'm aware it does twice a year, but enough is enough.

You're skimming the daily clickbait and there's an article extolling the virtues of MyGov and what every dinky-di should know-
https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/mygov-set-for-major-changes-that-every-australian-needs-to-know-about/ar-AA16W9wi
and there's the money quote-
More than 25million Australians have a MyGov account, with 1.4million people using the website everyday and daily usage tripling in the past five years.

Hang about as the population of Oz was 25.5million as of June last year so what's the deal with a MyGov account? Well it's like this-
https://my.gov.au/en/about/terms

To have a myGov account you must be a natural person and have your own email address. An email address can only be used once to create a myGov account.
Being a natural person means you are an individual human being. You are not a corporate entity, robot, or a software program, for example.


Which when you think about it means the Gummint already have all our names and numbers in the one place ready and waiting for each of us to log onto and match up with our central data file. Either that or there's an awful lot of aliases on MyGov just like there are email addresses.
There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

So what information do you think they want, when you log in, that they don't already have attached to your TFN?

I think the article pointed out what they want all in one place in future-

What changes have been recommended for MyGov?
* Access to more government services

* Registration of births and deaths

* Helping people respond to disasters

* Access to drivers licence, Medicare card, senior card and occupational licence

* Access to the census

* Allow users to enrol to vote

* Allow users to renew their passport


And as we've seen the bigger the database the harder they fall-

With the publicans attitude it's no wonder it's a bummer. 8 of us turned up for lunch 1 Saturday, bar was empty, 3 people out side in the "beer garden". Bloody hot day, sign on the door says "no dogs" but seeing as the place was almost empty we asked if we could take our dog out into the beer garden, "NO, go park under a tree" so 3 or $400 walked out the door never to return.
