Very interesting! A large majority seem to think there is a good deal wrong with the intrusive Government approach.
Latest news is that the effort is being ramped up with funded staff in white tee-shirts running all over Canberra government departments and in all sorts of health facilities all over the country harassing people to sign up.
I guess they have to spend the adoption budget before the Election or June 30.
The criteria that will matter is the actual usage rate of the record once people sign up. No stats are said to be available that I can find. If anyone knows of such stats please let us all know!
Again, many thanks to those that voted!
