So what was he pointing at, JapanToday? How about giving us the full picture, so to speak?

Britain's Minister of State for Defense Procurement

Incorrect. He's British and in his official job title Defence is spelt with a C.

Pointing is considered to be rude in Japan. Genius level briefing from the MoD.

Wrong, only pointing at other people is considered to be rude. Quin's gesture in that picture is not considered to be rude.

JT, he is in Defence, as in a proper noun, as in Labour in the UK too is a proper noun. No S. He is not American or of the Defense Department of said country.

Bill, you've never seen an old guy dance.

As presented this is a meaningless picture and a pointless story (pun intended). What is he pointing/demonstrating/explaining? Come on JT do the journalistic job properly and provide the background information. You can still have the jokey headline.

@GBR48 People in Japan point all the time. Let's get over all the petty Japanese taboos the so-called experts on Japan write about. I hear this crap all the time. Don't point, stick your chopsticks in your food, talk loudly, walk against the crowd, etc. There's not a day when I don't see all of these things being done by Japanese people. ;-}

I don’t know... I didn’t think the British did the hokey-pokey?

Of course we do but we use its correct name, Hokey-Cokey.

Here's something interesting for you:

I saw a cockroach this big.

Likely showing what happened to the career of everyone associated with approving the Army’s £3.5 Billion Ajax tank failure.

Eek! It's a mouse, run!

Not pointing but indicating size. "And our leader's is this big, or that's what my wife tells me."

Is he boasting that size does matter?

Pointing at Suga?

"This is where we place transparency and honesty when it comes to COVID. And it's where you can toss these ridiculous masks when the cameras are gone."

Pointing is considered to be rude in Japan. Genius level briefing from the MoD.

Is he selling used Ajax armoured vehicles? Classic throaty roar. The vibration helps you lose weight. One careful owner.
