Would You Like Bash Bedol In His Face?

Just noticed this news piece from the MCA's Star paper today:

PEKAN: The people can now send their views, suggestions and complaints on the performance of the Government and its leadership to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi through the Warkah Untuk PM website.

The website found at was launched on Saturday by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the Seri Kenanga residence in Peramu here.

Najib said that each message from the public will get a response from Abdullah.

A separate folder will also be created for innovative and workable ideas and the first 100 that have implementation merit will be rewarded with the senders being granted a personal visit with the Prime Minister.

Najib also presented a letter of appointment to Angkasawan Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor who is the website's ambassador.

Speaking to reporters later, Najib said it was the era of information, communication and technology (ICT) and the Internet channel was a vital and effective link to obtain feedback from the public.

"The people are free to give their ideas on anything and those with substance will be considered by the Government.

"It is also a way for the Government to know issues of concern among the public such as security, education, economy and social,'' he added.

Najib also said it was a two-way interactive and responsive communication that would have short and long-term effects, adding that it was something new adopted by the Government.

He added that the launching came about during the elections but the website would still be operational even after the general election was over as it was an essential way to continuously gauge the people's views.

So, it seems that the Sleeping Emperor is kind of very desperate in winning the hearts of the people that he decides to setup a site called 'Warkah Untuk PM'. It could have been done early, but of course this is a last minute thing as Dollah knows support for him is waning and waning as each day comes.

In that piece, it was mentioned that each message that the public sends will get a personal reply from Dollah. But the problem is that earlier on, Dollah had committed a cardinal sin for not replying to a 5-year old girl. The girl wishes to have a talk, and nothing else, with him, but she was turned away. If you are the father of a girl, and you turned her away for no reason, you are committing the sins of a father. Is he preparing to answer every person's questions for real or he's not going to answer all and ask his political secretaries like Wan Farid Salleh to throw it away down to the bin.

Show some proof....!

Here's a screenshot of the website, in English version.

Now, on the other hand, since Dollah says that this time he wants to listen (I've big ears!) to what people says, will anyone of you out there ready to bet that he will listen after you have put in all the points that you wish to say at him? Referring to points of failure to achieve his objectives and etc...I'm skeptical, so let's get the ball rolling with a compiled list of criticisms from bloggers?
