Do not vote for the LDP, mix it up and we might have, end up with a government that has your concerns your lives as a priority.

I literally just read an article on here that said his public support is going up. And this says the exact opposite. Which is it?

7 ( +7 / -0 )

Do not vote for the LDP, mix it up and we might have, end up with a government that has your concerns your lives as a priority.

Oh man I hear you loud and clear!

Although I do have to say that he is a step up above the 2 pieces of garbage that came before him.

Exports rising month on month, despite supply chain issues. Record trade deficit in May, and near record in April due to corporations reinvesting, something Japan inc hasn't done for 2 decades.

Short term pain for huge long term gain. Kishida is pro wage rise, for tge first time in years. Credit where credit is due, Kuroda shoukd also be praised for his courage.

Rising prices? Inflation?

Isn't this what the govt was trying for in the past 10 years?

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Exactly...one article says kishiditha's approval is up ...however this article says its down.

Classic !

Yeah i say don't vote for the LDP

Allow a different party to lead and give them a chance.

Don’t throw stones when you live in a glasshouse.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

No matter what party is in nothing is going to change. People are never going to be happy as a politician they know this because they can make promises that they only know they can't keep. They tell you what you want to hear!!

Kishida's support edges down; voters critical about rising prices

...but will anyway vote for the LDP at the next elections, so what gives?

2 ( +2 / -0 )

The main culprit is Kuroda which, by keeping forever the same ultra loose monetary policy when the rest of the world is tightening, creates the conditions for a very weak JPY (at its lowest level in real term against the USD for 50 years). This will translate by higher and higher imported inflation with the poorest being the most hurt as always. Very sad indeed.
