C4.5 poll: Who is your preferred Prime Minister?

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey , the world's leading questionnaire tool.
Three and a half months out from the election and we think its time for some creative thinking, so Coup 4.5 is today launching its own opinion poll.

The Fiji Sun has been running polls for the last three months and has concluded Frank Bainimarama will win – here then is an opportunity to get an alternative perspective.

So we start today with Who is Fiji’s Preferred Prime Minister?

SODELPA, NFP, PDP and FLP have all registered so will be included in our poll.

Bainimarama and Fiji First took their time registering and is still going through the motions, but where is the fun without them?

FLP is dragging things out in court so Mahendra Chaudhry is still officially the Party Leader, hence his inclusion.

In our poll, ladies go first.

Coup 4.5, you are quite mad. It isn't just the Fiji Sun which has Frank Bainimarama in a winning position. The Fiji Times Tebbutt poll has him in a landslide position as well. So what on earth are you thinking running a poll of your politically inbred, rabid anti government agitators? Of course, they are all going to choose SODELPA or some other losers. It should be quite clear to all of you by now that the election is all over bar the shouting. Fiji First will win, Frank will be the first genuinely elected PM in Fiji's history and all of you can stay in Sydney with Rajen or in Canberra with Suli and his other loser mates, Brij and Jone.

Qorvis, go sit on a tack! If the election is already over, as you say, it's only because it was a phony exercise to begin with.

Speaking of phony, nobody believes anything published in the Fiji Sun, not even you! C4.5 publishes more real news than does the Fiji Sun. And it should go without saying that many people are not going to openly state their true voting preferences when they're living under a dictatorship. By contrast, C4.5's poll places no one under compunction or duress. It may not be scientific, but it's a helluva lot more credible than a Fiji Sun poll!

Now, since you're so concerned that C4.5's readership will vote for the wrong candidate, why not organise your fellow regime sapotas to inundate the site with votes for the traitor of your choice? You did it before for the Vodafone popularity contest. May the best man or woman win!

Hey idiot at 12.49 AM. It's the Fiji Times Tebbutt poll, not the Fiji Sun poll that we're talking about here. GET THIS. The polls carried by both papers have the same result!! So quit all this Qorvis bullshit and look at the FACTS. A Bainimarama landslide. And the end of Coup 4.5 and the rest of you losers. Go FIJI FIRST!!!

Anon@4.34am I rather like this Peoples Poll. Fiji Sun or Fiji Times, the point is both predictably show support for regime. If anything, People's Poll gives me hope the people of Fiji will do the right thing for themselves.

Anonymous said...

No rigging. This is clearly an online service that tallies votes as soon as they're entered.

Of course, C4.5's readership is self-selective. It's an opposition website that is also constantly monitored and attacked by regime supporters. So both pro- and anti-Bainimarama votes will be in abundance. It doesn't show how the unwired people of Fiji feel.

There's nothing to stop regime supporters from casting multiple votes from regime-controlled computers -- a known regime tactic. So, if anything, this poll's strongest bias will probably be in Bainimarama's favour, since he's best positioned to mobilise the resources for responding to it all out of proportion to his true popularity, or lack thereof.

In short, it's not a scientific poll. But for sure it's a lot more reliable than anything published in the Fiji Sun.

Why are you fear about the Poll in this Blog Site. If you are too dammed sure that the Fiji Sun and Fiji Times Poll are legitimate and correct, I do not see any reason why you worry about the outcome of the Poll Preferred PM in C:4.5.
Just make sure that Fiji First Leader will not get a HEART ATTACK when other parties circulate their MANIFESTOS in JUNE. Finally if Frank is a true leader and achampion of democracy in the World he should follow the law and set up a level playing field for all political parties and their candidates to campaign. Secondly, he should tell his AG to quit his position as Minister for Election because of his political affliation to Fiji First, Declare all his assets in Fiji and overseas, Explain why he contracted Nur Bano to work out the salaries of his Ministers instead of using the Government Treasury, Why FRCA is a toothless tiger to investigate, fraud and corruption against him and Khaiyum.
If Frank reveal and explain some of the issues raised above, then he can have a better chance to win the election, otherwise his Blue Bus will take him to Naboro to meet his kaivata George Speight.

highest ever levels of Unemployment,
highest levels of Poverty,

Yet another good reason why Bainimarama cannot continue to be power. Through Khaiyum he will keep us all under their military boot. Get rid of the evil bastards:

My volunteer’s scholarship is terminated – Roshika Deo
The Tertiary Scholarship and Loan Scheme Board Chairman, Dixon Seeto said he will not comment on individual cases after aspiring politician, Roshika Deo’s claims that one of her volunteers had his scholarship terminated last week.
Deo claimed that the volunteer of Be The Change had his scholarship terminated by the Tertiary Scholarship Loan Board for “associating” himself “in political agendas”.
She said there are no stipulations in the scholarship arrangement that prevents a student from engaging in the political affairs of their country and nation building, especially in pursuit of making informed voting decisions.
Deo said her volunteer is a high achieving student who needs the scholarship to complete his undergraduate degree.
She urged Scholarships Board to reinstate the scholarship.
When Fijivillage questioned Chairman, Dixon Seeto, he stressed that they do not discuss information of any of the applicants in public because it is confidential.
However Roshika Deo said they want the decision reviewed as soon as possible.
Deo also stresses that her volunteer did not misuse any allowance given under the scholarship scheme.

Narendra Modi will be India's 14th prime minister, winning the largest democratic election of all time, and securing the largest mandate any Indian prime minister has won since 1984.

* Mr Modi is a Hindu nationalist. His political and cultural ideology stems from "Hindutva" — a hardline brand of Hindu nationalism — followed by his party, the BJP.

The BJP's election manifesto specified that India will welcome "persecuted Hindus," and vowed to build a temple on disputed grounds where a mosque was destroyed by right-wing Hindus. The BJP also plans to cut down beef exports as the cow is considered sacred to Hindus.

Well done C4.5 for this unbiased, unedited poll. Keeping it real, unlike fijispun or tebutt. This is true reflection on the ground here in Fiji.

Letter to Editor (27 May 2014). said...

Dear Sir,

The CEO of Consumer Council (Mrs Premila Kumar) very responsibly informed the public (Fiji TV, 26 May 2014) that consumers keep making serious complaints about the Ministry of Health due to:

* bad and insensitive attitudes of the staff,

* inefficiencies

* gross negligence

* with some patients even dying

* and with the Dental and Medical Councils not responding to consumer complaints, even when the complaints came via the Prime Minister’s Office.

Although Mrs Premila Kumar quite understandably praised Bainimarama for raising this health issue (just four months before the elections), sensible tax payers must be mulling over many questions:

(a) Why would Mrs Premila Kumar tell the country that she was working very closely with the Prime Minister’s Office on this health issue?

(b) if most problems in the country are being solved by the Prime Minister’s Office (as it seems from the media) does this indicate that all other Ministries are not doing their respective jobs, and should everybody (following Mrs Premila Kumar) make a beeline for the Prime Minister’s Office?

(c) if the Minister or Permanent Secretary of Health have not responded to Mrs Premila’s complaints after eight years, should they both do the honourable thing, and resign?

(d) why have the Dental and Medical Councils not addressed the complaints and should they all resign?

(e) given the numerous media statements by the impassive and impressive Permanent Secretary of Public Service (Mr. Parmesh Chand) about their many initiatives towards improving the efficiency of civil servants (such as retiring civil servants at age 55 and sending everyone for training to China), have all these efforts been a failure as far as the Ministry of Health is concerned, and should Mr Chand resign?

(f) given the seriousness of complaints from the CEO of Consumer Council, should Rear Admiral (retired) Bainimarama himself resign, given that his government has been in charge for eight years now (the lifetime of two normal governments), given that he has determined his own salary, and given that the buck should stop with him in more ways than one?

(g) or is the real fundamental problem that the Ministry of Health budget has been severely constrained for the last eight years, the salaries of doctors and nurses have been totally inadequate, they have been over-worked, and the funds for medicines and equipment have been grossly inadequate, because of the Bainimarama Government’s other spending “priorities”?

(h) for instance, would the $230,000 of public funds, unnecessarily paid to Fiji Sun to print the 40,000 signatures for the registration application of Fiji First Party (when only 5,000 was required), have been better spent on medicines for the Ministry of Health?

(i) Or why was not a mere $10 million reallocated to Health in the last budget, out of the massive allocation of $1 billion (i.e. $1,000 millions) to FRA over the last two years?

People died from dengue fever and hospital services have been deteriorated in the last eight years but no-school Bainimarama now promising medical reforms.

Even more stupid are the doctors who have welcomed his electioneering.

Snap out of it, Fiji.

Doctors have come out in support of the planned medical reforms announced by Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Retired) Voreqe Bainimarama.
Their professional body, Fiji Medical Association, has welcomed PM’s plans to improve the country’s medical services and facilities.
Mr Bainimarama said medical services in Fiji were of a great concern.
“The public medical service delivery does not only relate to the ratio of doctors to patients but also the attitude of medical staff towards their clients who are both out and in-patients.”
He said his office was monitoring medical services and in the next few months there would be some major reforms and basic upgrades to medical facilities and services. The association president, Dr James Fong, (pictured) said they were ready to facilitate the changes in any way they could.
Dr Fong is also the head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital.
“The impact of increasing urban drift and rising patient expectations have resulted in the introduction of new services,” Dr Fong said.
He said there was a greater appreciation for the need to spread out some of the more basic services. This is for better screening and management of early diseases and more efficient referral of advanced diseases. This, Dr Fong said, needed to be supported by reforms and upgrades that focused on essential areas.
“There is a need to improve the health system’s capacity to actively screen, follow up on screen positive persons, treat them in a timely manner and maintain appropriate follow-up management.”
He said it was also important to improve the health system’s capacity to plan, develop and implement health promotion initiatives.
“We need initiatives that will induce people to be more aware of their health needs, take measures to improve their health and to be more timely in seeking medical care.”

Anonat 2.29pm Being proud of being indigenous and wanting best for indigenous does not mean you are racist!

Indigenous people all over the world are standing up for their land, fishing grounds, sustainability, customs and traditions, heritage etc etc.

Settlers like to see this as racism, just as pakeha have done and Aussies too and don't forget the Americans because they colonised the indigenous and raped and pillaged resources.

We all know that's what they did but they don't want to acknowledge wrongs.

Fijians and Indians can and will find their path but not under this regime, who is power playing for its own interest.

I'm glad to see alot of views being expressed and I'm not too sure if the arguments here will make any difference. It is just a matter of opinion of oneself. I read quite alot of information on the web including this one and do not judge; just to be informed - whether it be true or not, only God knows. This poll also brings out the negativity in individuals that visit the poll, especially with remarks made in relation to ethnicity or religion (I'm sure you were all not brought up this way). In my view, regardless of who has the upper-hand, if the candidate or party wishes to win in the election, work hard toward and with the people of Fiji. I see and hear alot of talk, but nothing to suggest the execution of the proposals being put forward - realistic ones. If the citizens truly believe in your abilities, then the votes will decide.

As it is, I've seen some good developments in the country! SODELPA would need to work hard and as I see it, the campaign strategy isn't a good one - too much backward thinking and very less of the forward thinking in capturing attention.

May the hard working party that wins the hearts of Fiji Citizens win.

God Bless.

@Fijian Scribe

It is not that simple. I would rather have a backward group that is democratically elected than a despotic dictatorship who came to power through the barrel of the gun.

We don't know the state of the country's finances. We don't know how much foreign debt the illegal regime have accrued for our children. We don't even know what they are paying themselves.

A Ponzi scheme is where you take say $50,000 dollars from an investor. At the end of the year you give them back $20,000 and tell them it is interest (even though it is $20,000 out of the $50,000. They think they are getting a good deal until they get nothing more.

This illegal regime have used smoke and mirrors. They refuse to release the true state of Fiji's finances. Foreign investment is way down. Fiji could be in real deep trouble but we will not know until this illegal regime comes to an end.

You speak of "good developments". We don't know where the money came from. Frank and Aiyaz are buying key votes.

I believe that God would rather a poorly run democracy than a illegal coup where basic freedoms and the rule of law have been disregarded. Why? For a reason that was rejected by the courts.

How can you see a lot from the other parties when they have not been given a chance. If you trust in the Lord - pray that justice is done. The people have been fooled for too long.

@ Justice First

Thank you for your comments. You sound very educated and with your structured thoughts. I do acknowledge that events have happened in the past - I am not turning a blind eye to that (it cannot be erased from memory) as I was finding it difficult to make my way home on that day! I also acknowledge the developments that have occurred and whether we were capable of funding it as a country - I do not know (possibly via China???) - I'm not sure. But I do stand in what I say as described as "developments". Not too sure if you have family, but my belief is that if my family is required to meet some sort of needs and my income does not cover it, I would get out of my way to meet those needs (as long as the "needs" are beneficial to my family). The debt that I take, I work extra hard to earn the much needed income to pay off these debts. If I were a PM and my country needed to grow, I would make every effort to ensure its growth, however, I must also take the extra hard work to fulfill the commitments, without compromising our future.

It is not that simple - but if you consider the "family" reference - it becomes clearer. We often complicate too many of our problems - I've seen quite a bit on the news and read in the dailies (Think outside the box).

If I were SODLEPA? I would credit the current government for the work they've done. We're trying to work as a united family (not as a divided one). The next steps are simple, be with the people - not just on media saying I'll do this, I'll do that. Be with them and understand. Be with the business community. Be with the youths....and I would do it not just for the sake of doing it to win votes but to genuinely be "there". I would want votes from voters who would think that the leader I picked is "there for me" not just because he/she promised me something - doesn't work in my books.

My prayers have always been said for our country - it is up to God how he wishes to direct the hearts of our parties and our voters.

My thanks.

It's getting late, but the different parties still can, and should, unite behind a common ticket to defeat Fiji First and to present a united front against the regime when it postpones/steals/disregards the elections. Clearly, that ticket should be led by Ro Teimumu. The other parties should negotiate places in the unity government with SODELPA.

Please define your "growth" in our Fiji situation where the PM is unelected, government service is a fuss, Health service is dead, many people are unemployed, shop items prices have risen 800% in the last 3years, only the favoured are employed, there is no accountability of Public money, the future already compromised with the debt level, the crimes are swept under the carpet, the voices of the people are strangled, justices is denied, education is a farce, corruption is rife, democracy is dead and dictatorship is thriving, etc etc etc

To all the anonymous replies, my thanks for your thoughts - I hear what you are saying and at first glance, you may disagree with my perspective - and that you are entitled to. "Growth" isn't about what you're referring to in isolation - you're missing the other growth components that are already in play - infrastructure, societal relationships, broadening opportunities....etc...etc. The problem is, too many people do not think broadly about our situation - just in isolation - and specifically who is in power. There are too many finger pointing. The point here is, we've got election coming up, the person/party that wins my vote in terms of "hard work" and "dedication to the individual and not the power" wins. There are other opportunities to revisit the wrongs that have been done - whether it be 5 years or 10 years.....remember patience is a virtue.

If the situation is on a thread, why cut it - let it rebuild itself for the benefit of everyone. Would I sacrifice this election for another coup - no way - my country is too fragile to go through another chapter - let's rebuild - like I said - patience is a virtue. Answers might not come now - but they will come!!!

@Fijian Scribe...Fiji cannot sustain growth with criminal elements in government. Criminals who are the law unto themselves. Please don't delude yourself with developments purported by this government. They have a form of government but are lacking in the true nature of their existence.
Fiji should grow on the basis of truth not on the lies of power hungry individuals, no matter how they display themselves as true leaders. Deception comes in all sorts of colours.
Think outside the box? yes, we should, but it ain't in the expense of destroying the law!

Anonymous said...

Fijian Scribe, I don't think we're missing the various development components at all. We're placing these within the context of unaccountable government and ballooning debt that seems targeted to projects for political reasons rather than on the basis of objective need. We need leaders who put the nation's welfare ahead of their own. Obviously someone who would overthrow the government just for the selfish purpose of evading the law is not such a leader.

This poll doesn't mean anything. Your opinions don't mean anything. The elections don't mean anything. You'll get the government we give you. End of story.

In my view,the poll so far is a true reflection of support for Fiji's leader. I speak with citizens of Fiji and tell you what? Take away our basic rights and we will not forget. Most people I talk with want the Regime mainly ASK and VB to declare their interest since 2006 and have an audit. Dictators fail to understand you cannot take horses to water and make them drink.

In the months leading up to the coup Bainimarama received regular military briefings of an impending coup.

He was fully aware of the threat to Government. He had also built up intelligence on the impending coup through a military intelligence unit. In addition, soldiers from a specialist unit called the Counter Revolutionary Warfare Unit (CRW), which had been created by Government, and members of the Third Fiji Infantry Battalion (3FIR), were gathering information on the coup and informing Bainimarama.

The sad fate of the CRW soldiers, who were either murdered by or incarcerated or otherwise silenced by Bainimarama, is also outlined in this document.

Despite all the information that Bainimarama had received regarding an impending coup, Bainimarama arranged to attend a conference in Norway in May 2000. This was a United Nations conference on Peacekeeping (the irony of the subject matter of this conference will rapidly become apparent).

Before he was due to leave for the conference, Bainimarama was informed by the Commanding Officer 3FIR, Lt Colonel Viliame Seruvakula, that the coup would be held on 19th May 2000. This warning was given one week before the coup. Bainimarama's response to this warning clearly shows his guilt in the matter of the coup. He said: "OK set you know what to do I have to attend this meeting it is very important for the RFMF."

Bainimarama clearly planned to be out of the country when the coup occurred so that he could avoid blame for it.

Premilla’s husband Jai Karan got a job at USP without any advertisement at USP. This was a back door job by VC Rajesh Chandra for the husband who was not qualified but sacked from his last job. Premilla should investigate for his sacking.Nepotism of the highest level. Can she investigate this as a complain as the people who were qualified and experienced did not even get a chance to apply. Premilla should clear her backyard first and leave people who are doing good job despite the limited resources..

whatever happened to balaggan said...

RPC and Kini Mariwai were both disbarred and whatever happened to the Balaggan story. Good time to retell it, we are in need of some humour with depressing thought of Fiji Opposition unbelievedly shortsighted and Fiji First/Bainimarama/Khaiyum rubbing their hands over more power.


FLP leader's lawyer son suspended
The son of the leader of the Fiji Labour Party could be getting a start in politics sooner rather than later after being suspended today from practising law for the next five years.

Rajendra Chaudhry and fellow Suva lawyer, Kini Maraiwai, were both suspended after being found guilty recently by the Independent Legal Services Commission of breaching protocol.

Chaudhry was found guilty of one count of professional misconduct and one count of unsatisfactory professional conduct: Maraiwai of two counts of unsatisfactory professional conduct and one count of professional misconduct.

Justice Paul Madigan ruled Chaudhry be suspended until March the 1st in 2017, that he also be publicly reprimanded and pay costs of $1,000.

Madigan also ruled Chaudhry only be recertified by the Chief Registrar after proving he has undertaken five hours of training in legal ethics by an acceptable institution or a tutor.

He has however allowed Chaudhry to practice until october the 26th but ordered he is not allowed to reappear in court, or accept any new instructions from existing or new clients.

Kini Maraiwai's four year suspension was immediate with immediate with Madigan also ordering he be publicly reprimanded and also pay costs $1,000.

Madigan also rueld that like Chaudhry, Maraiwai only be recertified by the Chief Registrar on of having undertaken five hours of training in legal ethics.

Both Chaudhry and Maraiwa's charges relate to the Indian national, Muskan Balaggan, who was convicted of drug smuggling and whom Chaudhry was accused of having sex with.

Sources say Rajendra Chaudhry is being groomed to take over from his father, Mahendra Chaudhry, who is alo facing charges relating to breaches of the Exchange Control Act.

Chaudhry Jnr was apparently annointed successor at a recent delegates meeting which FTUC national secretary Felix Anthony and supporters say voting was stitched up by the two Chaudhry's.

Following a statement denouncing FLP, Anthony and FTUC have since left FLP saying the party no longer represents workers and is caught up in a “quagmire of deceit, dishonesty and hypocrisy.”

"Whatever happened to Balaggan", you forgot to mention the most interesting part, which was how the regime's Attorney-General, who is supposed to be the chief law enforcement officer in the land, tried to suborn Balaggan's testimony. He actually tried to persuade her to perjure herself in order to falsely incriminate RPC. Reprehensible stuff!

This poll is a real embarrassment for Bainimarama and Qorvis. Even on an opposition website, if Bainimarama had anything like the overwhelming support he claims, he should be polling a lot better than this.

Of course, we all know Bainimarama doesn't enjoy that much support. If he did, he would have let us hold elections long before now.

This poll makes it harder to sell the lie of Bainimarama's popularity. This makes it harder for him to steal the elections and harder for Canberra and Wellington to pretend it isn't being stolen.

Poate Seniloli said...

Yes, the poll is definitely rigged. Anybody can sit at a PC and vote continuously for just one candidate, be it Ro Teimumu Kepa or Frank Bainimarama and increase that person's poll rating. There is no restriction whatsoever on how many votes a person can allocate to those listed. The results shown are wrong. Very sad that C4.5 is misleading people this way.

High Tea said...

Poate, very sad that you don't even seem to know how to spell your own name. It's also sad that you make unfounded allegations.

With Survey Monkey, you cannot sit continuously at a PC and cast vote after vote. Survey Monkey allows only one vote cast per PC.

Sad that you would make such an allegation without first testing for yourself the veracity of your statement.

Besides that, if what you claimed were true, the regime would surely have Qorvis and its army of trolls working around the clock to cast votes for Bainimarama, just as it did with the Vodafone popularity contest two years ago.

Even with the survey operating according to the principle "one PC, one vote", Bainimarama enjoys a major advantage. After all, who controls more computers in Fiji than the regime, especially when you add its corporate supporters? This straw poll is politically much more significant than the Vodafone personality contest ever was, because these results so far seriously undermine the pro-regime poll results earlier claimed in the controlled media. Given how it has operated to date, then, we can only expect that the regime and Qorvis are now scrambling to cast votes on as many different computers as they can muster.

This suggests the likelihood that the poll results are actually skewed in favour of the regime. In other words, the number of pro-Bainimarama votes cast so far is likely inflated through the regime's casting of duplicate votes using different computers. That its numbers nonetheless remain so low is quite an embarrassment for the regime, any way you slice it.

Of course, many Fijians do not have Internet access and so cannot participate in the survey. And so respondent selection is a major problem with this as with other polls. But my own sampling of sentiment at the village level so far tracks pretty closely to C4.5's survey results.

@ Fijian Scribe.

As Human beings we MUST give our 100% trust to politicians. These are just human beings with limited knowledge who will try to impress people to vote them in.

As voters we are the ones that will decide our fate as a nation. We need to have established principles in life grounded in our universal philosophy of freedom, just and equality and most importantly to acknowledge the founding fathers of this great society. The combined elements of virtues and common beliefs in God who because when our chiefs gave this land to Britain they also gave this land to God.

It is up to individual politicians whether they will honor the commitment and dedicated by our Chiefs and those hard working girmitiyas and part Europeans and other ethnic groups that have make their home in Fiji.

Ratu mentioned in of his interviews that at "the end of the matter it is between you and God not you and them".

We all make choices through the lenses we are wearing, irrespective of our cultural, religious, political, social differences.

I do hope that out of the different lenses that we have we MUST put our children at the centre of all our choices.

Do we need leaders that will perpetuate the coup culture teaching our children to break rules and laws?

Leaders who just support any body as long as their personal agendas are taken care of.

Leaders who have NOT proved themselves in their own fields of endeavor.

Political parties spreading misinformation on cost said...

The Chairman of the Commerce Commission of Fiji believes there is lot of misinformation and mischief making by political parties during their election campaigns who are claiming that the cost of living in the country has risen significantly.

Commission Chairman, Doctor Mahendra Reddy said the parties are spreading false information to the voters which is unfortunate.

Meanwhile National Federation Party Leader, Doctor Biman Prasad said on Sunday that the burden of the rising cost of living has become too much.

He said the responsibility for this lies squarely on the government. Doctor Prasad claims milk is disappearing from the children’s breakfast menu as most families can no longer afford a balanced diet.

He said families juggle between whether to pay their electricity bills, or rent or buy adequate food or pay for school costs.

He claims in eight years this government has failed to address the rising cost of living.

The Commerce Commission Chairman said to deal with this they will put out more factual data for the public soon.

If GCC is not relevant to those modernised Kai Viti then they too are old enough to make their choice and they too can migrate to another country.

The GCC is an institution that has been a uniting force of all the different tribes in Fiji.

The GCC is symbolic representative of all the indigenous people of the country and must be protected because of its historical values, importance and leadership throughout history.

You need to learn the history of this country first before you earn history of other lands.

Last year they publish an article about the Tongan students who were drunk and taken to police station in Tonga. They even wrote on the same article about Mr Rabuka and Mr Bainimarama,s name. What do they have to do with this story. I was even told by an employee of the newspaper that the poll they did is all inside job in the office. By now since Fiji and Suva is a small place I would have been interviewed by them if millions of people they have already question on the poll.

Poate Seniloli said...

Dear Editor,

You have the absolute right to advise bloggers to ignore my comments.

Firstly, when you yourself make baseless claims about an IP address, you should know that an IP address gets generated by a network based device from where it is being operated from based on the subnet mask and more specifically the device's IPv4 settings. A person can also use a floating IP address to secure a device against malicious attack HENCE a person's address cannot be correctly determined simply from an IP address 100% of the time.

You further stated that "Survey has been designed for people to vote once..." therefore there is no restriction whatsoever to prevent anyone from voting twice for the same person.

Thirdly, to everyone claiming that this is blog is one place where they can air their views without fear of being targeted, I say that you are all lying (except for a few) otherwise you would not be commenting at Anonymous or with some other funny name.

I challenge you editor not to remove this post.

Thank you.

Dear Poate, so glad to hear you're human. C4.5’s capcha is supposed to prove we're not robots, but you can never be too careful. Yes, we all make typographical mistakes. It's just rather rare for us not to notice when we misspell our own name.

But rather than belabour the point, I'd prefer to thank you for your explanation, which does indeed spare me great mental distress. Now if I can only decide which socks to wear tonight!

Perhaps I can reciprocate by sparing you some mental distress as well. You see, One PC, One Vote does indeed apply in the case of this survey.

Why do you insist it doesn't, when you obviously don't know? This seems to be an ongoing pattern for you. To err is human, and to repent divine, but to persist is devilish.

How do I reconcile One PC, One Vote with your hypothetical situation of two posters wanting to vote from the same Internet shop PC? It's simple, really -- the survey will only register the vote of the first person posting from that computer.

I hope this answer alleviates your own mental distress and enables you to find your way back to Vakatora Apartments.

Have a happy evening!

Hmmm, isn't it curious that "Poate" can lecture us all about IP addresses and yet pretend not to understand how a simple online survey works? Also, how he misspells his own name and gives an address different from what his IP would seem to indicate?

What about the way he seems to insist on misreading and misinterpreting everything? For example, how is saying that a survey is designed for people to vote once in any way equivalent to saying that anyone can vote twice for the same person? What convoluted reasoning is that?

To top it off, he says we're liars to suggest that this blog is one place where people can express themselves without being targeted. He points to our use of anonymity as proof that we do fear being targeted. Does he really not understand that it is precisely because we can post anonymously on this site that people can express their views without being targeted by the regime?

"Poate" is either stupid, deliberately being obtuse, and/or he's a regime troll who probably works for the army at Berkeley Crescent.

Social Democratic Liberal Party General Secretary, Pio Tabaiwalu is blaming the media after Fijivillage questioned him on why SODELPA is raising issues about the health sector with just over three months to go for elections.

Tabaiwalu claimed that this is not just political campaigning by SODELPA now and they have released statements in the past few months that were not covered.

Fijivillage has not received any of the statements on the health sector from SODELPA until the statement released earlier this week.

SODELPA which is made up of the former SDL party that was in government from 2001 to 2006 now said many Ministry of Health facilities are in disgraceful conditions.

Tabaiwalu said outpatients are tired of long waits for attention and the colonial - style filing systems containing their medical records still remain.

He said while the government brags about taking Fiji into the era of the internet and computer technology, it has failed to invest in basic data systems to give faster and more efficient service to the people attending hospitals and health centres.

However Tabaiwalu has expressed concern that major reforms will be undertaken by the government so close to the election.

He said by convention caretaker administrations should not undertake major policy changes or major capital expenditure.

Tabaiwalu said SODELPA will improve health services if they are elected to form the next government.

When questioned on what SODELPA will do if they come into power, Tabaiwalu said they have to do a comprehensive study first and then decide on the areas of concern.

Oh dear, just who can we believe or trust?

SODELPA isn't the same as the SDL. It's a more broadly based party. Its tent is big enough to cover Pita Waqavonovono, Mick Beddoes, and Nirmal Singh.

It should be bigger still. The other parties should unite behind a common ticket led by SODELPA. That is the best, and perhaps the only, way to end Frank's tyranny.

GCC's very existence served no purpose than to roam around in "slippers" drinking free grog in expensive buildings and trying to act smart. I am always going to be part of this country (in your face) because without us, this country would have gone to the dogs. Why do you want a bunch of old fags make decisions when the country has a President, Prime Minister and other ministers? I'll tell you why: to keep people like you satisfied that your historical ties and traditions are intact. In fact you don't give two hoots about your tradition in the face of modern-day advancement. To keep you and your likes in check, did you ever realize that you travel from point A to Point B in motorized vehicles rather than on board "HMAS No Come Back" (GCC Official Transport, the Bilibili)? If not for us, you'd still be in grass skirts running around poking each other with sharpened sticks (and God knows what else). Remember who suffered when Rabuka implemented the Sunday Ban and business houses, taxis, buses and things we own and operate shut down? Yeah, YOU!

An option might be for Indigenous Fijians to go to India and demand Land Ownership there. But I can't see Indians accepting those demands, can you?
