Letter to householders declares letters are dead

It is ironic that Ahmed Fahour sent a letter to all householders to declare that letters are dead. A situation not lost on the media. Read a summary of the story ‘Every post’s a loser’ by journalist Liam Barlett, from WA Sunday Times below.

‘Congratulations to the egghead responsible for sending an entire mail-out of ‘‘Letters to Householders” around the country, explaining that “letters” as a form of communication were dead. Simply brilliant.’

‘Actually it was even better than that. The letter explained through a wonderful combination of gobbledygook, doublespeak and obfuscation that “letters” as we know them are on their death bed, currently hooked up to a life-support machine called the “taxpayer”, but unless we all pay more money they have zero chance of resurrection.’

‘Cutting through all the Swahili, what we now pay for will be much slower, but we’ll pay more. What we used to pay for will be the same, but to use it we’ll pay a heck of a lot more. Moreover we are expected to cover the losses of postal services while Ahmed Fahour earns $4.8million a year.’ Click here to view the full story.
