Didn't expect anything else.

Suga will continue with his "show" and the opposition should have stronger arguments for a no-confidence vote. We are stuck with this cabinet until.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Suga. Inherits 'the throne' and instead of being an interim PM seizes power. His general ineptitude, cognitive impairment due to old age and intensely conservative ideology have resulted in continual mismanagement and an increasingly haphazard governance. He is an ongoing, low-level disaster. His dedication to The Olympics, borders on madness, as it is a potential threat, literally, to the health of the nation and its peoples. That he acquiesces to private power aka the IOC and Comcast does not bode well for the immediate future. A party aka LDP ruled over and controlled by septuagenarians reflects policies that are antiquated and basely reactionary & right wing. Suga and his cronies are a churlish lot that portend disaster for the future. The people themselves have no confidence in the current ruling junta.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

A survey by NHK public television showed 37% of respondents approved of Suga's government while 45% disapproved.

I can only wonder what could be so important than even this significative drop of popularity was not enough to roll back unpopular decisions like hosting the olympics.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Welcome to the LDP dictatorship run by geriatrics with no idea how to govern and no care to do so!!

His general ineptitude, cognitive impairment due to old age and intensely conservative ideology

I don't think he has any ideology. His all-words-no-actions are proof of that.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

It wouldn't have matter even if it passed. LDP will be crushing the opposition in any election at any time in any circumstances. LDP support among the young is growing, and opposition have close zero support among the young so they pretty much have no future. National polls also mean nothing. Support also means nothing. Voting intention would tell a much different story, where LDP would have overwhelming advantage.

In each region, the vast majority would vote for LDP or their local ruling political family. Anyone who do not support the local political family would simply not vote. So in the end, the ruling politicians or their family members will be winning 80%+ of the votes in their region. Votes do not change in Japan, it is up on the political families to change political parties.

Suga daddy's days are numbered. Pretty serious motion. But I do not think he minds. He seems ready to move along so it seems.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Surprise, surprise, best be aware Toshihiro Nikai has in mind for next in the queue.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

This is planned politics.

It doesn't matter how strong the arguments are, these no-confidence motions are always a total waste of time.

Suga and his party staying in power has more to do with the pathetic populace than their corruption and incompetence!

Corrupt people will do whatever they can get away with!
