Our beloved Prime Minister has made an announcement today that every adult Malaysian will be given a 1 Malaysia email account and this will be a RM50 million project, awarded to company named Tricubes.
I know, every one of was like ‘shit man!’ in ur heart, rite?
One question need to be asked to Najib, hello Mr. PM, email account can get for free, why on earth pay RM50 mil for something that one can get for free?
There goes to waste my tax money. 1Malaysia again, 1Malaysia my foot!
If u want to connect between government and rakyat, just open a page in facebook and post whatever rubbish u want to post. More effective! Who's going to check their emails all the time by the way? Obviously, I am not. Stop wasting people’s money u idiot!
So insensitive of the government. Here the rakyat is struggling to make out a living with the high inflation cost and low salary, but the government wants to splash money on what is not a necessity.
Here we talk about public fund, not their parents money! RM50millions is a lot of money! We are very happy with our free Yahoo, Gmail, and Hotmail account and we don't need and don't trust the 1Malaysia email, period! Nothing had been done under 1Malaysia and we for sure don't need 1Malaysia to be involved in email. Get a grip, do something prudent with our money!
What’s the point of this email by the way? My yahoo mail has been performing ok for a dozen or so years already. Me fail to understand lah this rubbish that comes out from our Malaysian leaders nowadays!!!
How do u even begin to justify RM50 million (seven zeros) creating a service which will not even be in use??! How do u suppose ur citizens in less developed areas access this email when they do not even have an internet connection to begin with? My TAX dollars are being spent to bail out a company run by the son of "someone".
Considering the fact that Malaysia has 27.5 million people, of which 50% is 18 and above, which is about 13.75million, and how many of the 50% are not IT savvy? Why not let the citizen vote and see who wants this? I'm sure the RM 50 million can be spent on a lot of other very important things.
And furthermore, if want to award contract, then should call for open tender, they should not simply give contract to unknown company that is almost bankrupt. This Tricube company, which is currently in danger of being delisted from Bursa Malaysia for financial irregularities, is a failing company and in needs of cash injection.
Really, I’m interested to know who runs this firm? Can we stop this email nonsense and start thinking on more pertinent issues. There are so many daily issues that affects us and we want to provide email service to all 18 and above? Can someone please find out why the chicken price shot up? What the cluck? Is the government of the day seriously looks into how it can help the Malaysians on the daily bread and butter issues? Like, does the government know how many times the cooking gas price shot up and why? And to rub salt into the wound, we are a petroleum producing country!!! Ok so we sell our oil to get huge profit right? So where does the money go to? To fund some half cooked no brainer email service at the expense of the citizens! This project is to inject financial stability to ailing Tricubes, thumbs down!
This is day light robbery. Making use of taxpayers' money to enrich their cronies. Rakyat are not stupid. How will the rakyat support government when most of the rakyat can hardly make ends meet and how many of these rakyat are going to use it to communicate with the government. What a frivolous idea!!! C’mon wake up Mr. PM!
And to Idris Jala, well done to u! So giving subsidies will bankrupt Malaysia, but frivolous expenditure will not?? This is utter animal waste. What do u think we are? Stupid???
This 1Malaysia email is a complete joke, another thing to be laughed about by our global neighbours. Auditor-General please audit this nonsensical 1 Malaysia e-mail company urgently to find out what happened to the RM50 million tax payers money.
“Najib who announced the project clarified early this morning that the email account is entirely voluntary. The PM’s statement came hours after his Performance and Management Delivery Unit Pemandu officials also took to the micro-blogging service to quell a furore over the email service which some said was a waste of the announced RM50 million investment “1Msia Email address is NOT compulsory for all Msians 1Msia Email is a private sector-led initiative by Tricubes Berhad with investment from the company.”
Both statements contradicted Tricubes Bhd’s filing to the Bursa Malaysia early this month on April 4 in which the IT firm said it had been awarded the email project by the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit Mampu.
And if no public funds, what is this appointment by the government and why do u need an appointment by the government if it is truly a private initiative.
Ever wonder if these so called politicians are actually doing anything productive or even deliberated and processed their thoughts before releasing these stupid ideas to the public. Stop wasting the country's resources and if they are employees of private corporations, they would have been FIRED by now!
Talk about being a high income nation by 2020, more like joining our pals in Africa and Bangladesh. Even China is moving far ahead of us in terms of mentality, economical advancement and etc.
The current government this country; and I stress on current, are so far removed from its citizens, they've lost track of reality. I've not lost faith in my country. I've lost it in my Government. Its time for change!!!
