We haven’t even received the personal stimulus application forms yet!

We haven't even received 

That’s because the city offices are filled with lazy old people as workers who sit and watch the computer screen all day without being very productive! The work rate for simple tasks in Japan is at snail speed!

Anyone who still believes what Abe says needs to get their heads checked. He’s a total disgrace to Japan.

UK saying public spending cuts, tax increases to pay for the £350 billion costs of COVID-19

You can apply online for ¥100,000 if you don't want to wait for the forms to arrive. Ours comes at the end of May. Too slow really.

It baffles me how slow things can be in Japan despite how advanced technologically they are in so many ways. Why can't money be dispersed at Shinkansen speed?

Abe says nothing when he talks. Double talk. What was that book called? Ahhhhhh! George Orwell. 1984.

Because literally behind the hi-tech machines is a group of old men doing paperwork.

Visiting my bank branch here is like walking into the 1970s.

Yes the Keidanren cronies are already up for a second round of taxpayer largess while everyone else is waiting for an indefinitely delayed first round, as the LDP plays a waiting game that this crisis passes out of the headlines

Still waiting my masks, not even mentioning the 100,000 and they talk about phase 2?? Plus who on heart can live with a single payment of 100,000 anyway. Luckily for me I don't have any loan, but cost of life didn't shrink same way as my revenues did.
