Hold calls to PM for now
Friday, March 25, 2011
The Prime Minister’s Office has asked people to hold off their calls to the PM at the moment as he is away overseas – but they are free to text or email the office with any issues they need to raise.
Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama released his phone number to the public this week – the first Prime Minister in the country to ever do so – and received an overwhelming number of calls from people wanting to communicate their concerns directly with him.
People have largely wanted to raise concerns on the performance of civil servants and government departments as well as issues directly affecting their lives.
The PM’s Office says people can text their issues to 01 or email email@example.com and three senior officers are on stand-by to address their concerns.

Bainimarama overturns his "please call me" policy
Once again, more entertaining gaff material for the public.
Only day's ago, the invitation to to contact the illegal and treasonous Bainimarama and lodge complaints on naughty civil servants, was extended to the greater public through FBC's news report.
And in a complete about-turn now that the illegal and treasonous Bainimarama has just figured out what a bad idea THAT was, his minions (the very same folks you CAN complain about) have suggested that the public should txt or email instead.
The spin piece lauds the illegal and treasonous Bainimarama as the first Prime Minister
in the country to make such a move. We'd like to suggest that he would probably be the first IDIOT (and pretend) Prime Minister on the planet who has ever revealed his direct cell phone details to the public at large.
What the minions (and Bainimarama himself) do not want the public to know is that he is in presently in Hong Kong to watch the 7's and the mere roaming charges for these calls (as well as the inconvenience when he's watching rugby), would probably bust his and the whole Government's communications budget.
By now revealing his email address, he has just opened himself up to another risk - that of email hacking and/or an email swarm.
