Land Title Privatisation Madness

gbs-knot

Great letter in SMH today 26-feb-2017.  Bulldozer Baird’s plan to privatise the NSW Land & Property Information (LPI) service is one of biggest messiest snags that he left behind for Team GB, second only to the forced council mergers mess.

I don’t get it. The NSW’s land registry has been operating for 150 years and is making a profit of $130 million a year providing a crucial service to NSW residents (“Land titles privatisation could see jobs leave the state“, February 24). Yet the government is determined to privatise it. The legacy of this government’s obsession with selling off any state asset they can lay their hands on will be felt for generations. Of course, many of the employees laid off as a result of privatisation, are already suffering the consequences.
