More than 25million Australians have a MyGov account,

Hang about as the population of Oz was 25.5million as of June last year so what's the deal with a MyGov account?

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.

Well, MyGov has been running for ~20 years, so if, in that time, you've done anything with Govt e.g. lodged a tax return, used HECS for Uni, had any dealings with CentreLink (Youth Allowance / Newstart through to Age Pension), or been born!, then you're in the system!

It would surprise me if there are .5 million people NOT on it ???

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-

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.

He isn’t the first. I saw the same thing on one of the reality cop shows. Sydney Harbour Patrol or some such.

It was a lad who had borrowed his dad’s boat and filled the bilges with petrol.

Sad story all round, I do not condone sexual abuse in any way shape or form but I am also confounded by why it takes 40 or 50 plus years to be brought to light.
