This is looking more and more like a cabinet full shuffle only done one minister at the time, one thing is to have one bad apple, another is that his is quickly becoming the rule and not the exception.

When a team has to let go one member to improve you can say be justified in thinking he was the problem, when half the team is being let go and the problems persist then the one in charge is the problem.

Kishida as Prime Minister will resign very soon, his cabinet was unstable and the scandal with U.C. is persisting.

When a team has to let go one member to improve you can say be justified in thinking he was the problem, when half the team is being let go and the problems persist then the one in charge is the problem.

The problem is the LDP itself and the whole system of allowing individual politicians to hoard campaign donations through their support organisations. These scandals will keep coming up no matter who's in the cabinet, and the LDP is never going to fix the problem.

Quits? The earlier article said he was replaced by another empty suit.

Only thing these guys know about how to reconstruct is a youthful head of hair.

4 down, how many more to go?

A number of them will be worried that improper links and ties will be found, illegal donations uncovered, politicial violations exposed, the usual political machinations!

How reassuring seeing the photo of Watanabe.

I don't know which came to mind sooner......"same old,same old,hair dye or toad."

I guess it doesn't matter because the end results will be the same.

I believe there is a fundamental flaw in a parliamentary system and cabinet members. They’re just politicians.

Any country could benefit from having experts who have leadership experience in the field of their cabinet positions instead of political appointees.

Good one oyatoi.

But you forgot, " Won't Got Fooled Again"

Meet the new boss , same as the old boss.

Big deal! He’ll just get reshuffled to another government position. Nothing really changes.

Kishida said Mio Sugita, parliamentary vice-minister for internal affairs, had also submitted her resignation.

She will be greatly missed. By someone, somewhere.

a reshuffle

Will it be like that card trick - a false shuffle, I think it's called - where it looks like you changed things up greatly, but actually changed nothing at all?

The L.D.P. is the U.C. and the U.C. is the L.D.P. They are brothers, right?

The problem is not Kishida. The whole LDP party is fundamentally only excisting to serve their own members and all those they are closr with and that financially support them.

It is amazing that although for decades they go from one scandall to another, people still vote for them. As long as the voters don't wake up in Japan this will continue and the country will sinc deeper away...
