Who in their right mind accepts a single opinion anyway.  I'm yet to find a 
Doctor that can tell me something I don't already know, or actually make a 
correct diagnosis.  I'm yet to find a Public Serpent in the process of a 
transaction who actually knows what they are talking about and not just 
sprouting something like "The Privacy Act says we can't>" and when you ask 
them what section they say "I don't know, why should I know that?"

Gosh I even had it out with NAB phone banking the other day because they 
wanted to ID my wife, and I was able to give them all the information they 
wanted, in fact I had to listen to the call on the call monitor so I could 
give my wife the answers to the questions being asked.

So much for security!
