It is disappointing to read in The Australian that Qantas owned Jetstar and the government owned Australia Post are pursuing the sale of Jetstar tickets in Australia Post outlets. Once again the government is demonstrating its commitment to small business by allowing the retail network and brand it owns to take business from small business travel agents while at the same time making a cabinet decision which protects Qantas on the Austral8ia – US route. Consumers are getting done over on price thanks to one decision and small business is being shafted by the other decision. So much for small business support.
