quote of the day

People don't want to hear your opinions. Just let Mr Ishihara speak on key topics and policy views.

Spoken like a true dictator.

Wake up sheep, your being led to slaughter.

The irony - that this man is trying to clamp down on bullying, but using these hectoring, bullying tones with his peers. What an arse. Hasn't he heard of leading by example?

Can you imagine if something similar were said in Canada or Britain? He'd be out on his ear in 5 minutes. In Japan where no one cares? Nada.

Does someone have video? That would be awesome to remix!

Yeah great one there. The guy is telling people who were voted in to speak for the people of their constituencies to shut up.

People don't want to hear your opinions.

I'm pretty sure some do! Instead of the garbage that flows out of the mouths of Ishihara and Hashimoto.

Bullying, when it's done by Hashimoto, is fine apparently.

I cannot understand the commentaries. What do you think this is? A democracy? Whar kind of people do you think elect an Abe?

Hashimoto is a typical japanese politician. He is simply more open about it, that is all. The people will applaude him for this.
