Centrelink should be run like a business

Which means, in a nutshell.. if they continue to operate as they have in the past, they will be forced to file for bankruptcy and go out of business or be taken over by new management.

Centre-flunk is an interesting website with hundreds of stories, anecdotes, links to news reports and discussion forums that tear into Centrelink.

Some of the rhetoric is a bit over the top, and I'm not sure how valid some of their complaints are.
I certainly don't agree with their calls to increase Centrelink's funding as a solution.

But this is what you get with government ownership of an entity. Is there a private business in operation today that has as many complaints ?
