Just replace everyone over 60. The cabinet needs young people instead of drowsy showa ojajis

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida is considering replacing select members of his cabinet...... including himself!

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Well they closed work shops for the mentally disabled due to budget restrictions, now would seem a good time to employ these people in positions of government can’t get any worse.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

Replace yourself Fumio.

Who with? The whole party is institutionally corrupt and mediocre.

They could replace him with a little league baseball team. What would be the difference? Same results.

Well Sunak is a moron, raising tax rates while the UK heads into recession. What is the point of that? Make the UK economy even worse?

1 ( +2 / -1 )

The UK is saddled with Sunak, Japan is stuck with clueless Kishida, both pathetically weak peas in a pod. Reshuffling the pack, like musical chairs, won't bring solutions to the endemic problems that now require radical surgery (at the top).

Kishida considered conducting a full-scale reshuffle but is now also considering replacing only a few ministers, the report said, because a large-scale replacement could possibly reveal more ties between the ruling Liberal Democratic Party and the Unification Church, a group critics say is a cult.

What an exciting new crop of dark suits and hereditary political connections wait in store.

Love the rationale at the end:

We cannot afford to remove our old ministers with their corrupt connections because the new ministers are also corrupt and we cannot afford newer revelations.

Well there are a plethora of proven corrupt underlings to choose from. It’s just how much tax payer money for no result are we expected to absorb.

Fumio Kishida is considering a full scale cabinet member reshuffle in a bid to reverse the decline of his popularity from 57% to 31% after he announced a 45 trillion yen, 5 year defence plan... the highest since since WW2. I wonder how can a cabinet reshuffle reverse the plunging descent of Japan's Prime Minister's popularity rate?

Kishida should be replaced-as ineffectual as they come!
