Posted in: Business lobby calls for lifting entry ban on nonresident foreigners See in context

I agree to lift the border restrictions for non residents but a lot of them will still not come here for any business trips and/or vacations as when they go home they still have restrictions for getting back into their own countries.

If what he is saying is the truth then it does open up the discussion of euthanasia. Its on the table in GOVT house in NZ at the moment and if I have the option of ending my life if and when I become incapacitated or have a terminal illness that will cause me pain I would opt to leave.

Posted in: 50% of single-parent households in Japan struggle financially: study See in context

I wish there is a way to find some of these people. I would personally help 1 or 2 of the families that can not afford food. Sadly because of the embarrassment involved they stay very quiet. If anyone knows of a site or place I could do that please post it. Not looking to donate to a charity that takes salaries but rather 1 or 2 individuals to directly help out.

I actually agree!! He has been so hard done buy that we should actually reduce his sentence...Seriously!! 51 x 10 years a piece for the murders and 5 years a piece x 40 for attempted murder bring that to 710 years, and give him the opportunity of parol after 250 years and I would be ok with that!

Posted in: Climate negotiators seek to resolve 4 key challenges See in context

There was an article in the media recently of a preserved fossil found of a 500,000 year old animal where the scientists were studying how "Climate Change" had an impact on how it died. I was shocked!!! Did not know factories and cars and private jets were flying around then!! It's all a crock to get money from us.

Posted in: World leaders dial up doomsday warning to kick-start climate talks See in context

There was an article in the media recently about a preserved animal fossil that was found to be something like 400,000 years old & the experts were wanting to study how "climate change" contributed to its death. So they all must have been driving cars and leaving the lights on all night in their houses huh?

Apparently giving money to the government will halt climate change. Like to know how. Go spend 1 year in NZ and you will soon the the whole thing is a joke.

Posted in: Japan may exempt Australian troops in joint drills from death penalty See in context

The death Penalty in Japan is only for very serious crimes such as murder. Why should they be exempt?!! Do the crime take the punishment. If you are planning on murdering someone then don't come here. Simple!

Posted in: New Zealand drops 'COVID zero' goal after Delta outbreak See in context

What the media is NOT saying is how much damage this woman has done to NZ's economy. She has ordered money to be printed to hand out during this time of Covid with no thought on how this will be repaid. It will be the next 2 generations of our current children that will be left to pay the debt. It is common knowledge with the general public in NZ that if there was an election now she would have zero chance of getting back in.

Posted in: Climate change pushes New Zealand to warmest recorded winter See in context

It's a load of rubbish. I am from the West Coast of the South Island of NZ and very close to the Fox and Franz Josef Glacier where I know all the locals. How is it then that the Glaciers are growing when it's supposedly getting warmer. All the tree huggers need to keep paying taxes top the government because according to them if you pay money to them they can change the climate! How also is it that 3000 years ago the Earth got warmer? Must be due the the Neanderthal's Industrial Factories huh? I will never buy into this rubbish.

Posted in: Difficult to end state of emergency as planned: health minister See in context

Although it would be difficult to do and would be a nightmare to be part of it. Japan needs to consider following other countries and do a complete lockdown for 1 month with borders completely shut. 1 month would allow anyone who currently has the virus to recover and stop the spread.

The national age of consent in Japan is 13 but prefectural law over rides it and range from 16-18.

Posted in: Lockdowns or vaccines? NZ, Australia, Japan try diverging paths See in context

I bit of a pointless article - Japan is lawfully not able to impose lockdowns so it was never an option for them anyway.

New Zealand also can not lawfully impose lockdowns but they did it anyway.

Posted in: Delta variant confirmed in New Zealand; virus case total increases to 7 See in context

So get this! She has just announced that the Delta variant came from Australia. But recently a UN member from the USA went to Fiji and became "Very Ill" after arriving. Our stupid previous Labour leader and now UN member Helen Clark sent a NZ Air Force plane to pick him up and take to NZ for treatment. Easy to blame another country when covering up your screw ups Cindy.

Posted in: New Zealand records 1st local coronavirus case in 6 months See in context

She has held Covid at bay but screwed the country in the meantime. As a NZ citizen I can not wait to see the back of her and hope the NZ public call for a snap election. She gave $2.5 million to the countries most notorious gang for so called "rehabilitation" & all its been used for so far is the gangs top leaders garden to be rebuilt. But refused to fund cancer treatment for children. Top lady

I didn't read all the comments above & maybe someone has already touched on this but the "National" age of consent in Japan has NOT been raised as some people think, it is still at age 13 BUT "Prefecture" laws over ride that and make it 18. I am not sure why the National age is still at that but it should be raised.

Posted in: COVID vaccines to be available to all under 65 in Japan at same time See in context

Te reason the media lets us make a comment on articles is partly due to authorities involved reading the comments and getting ideas from them.

"No, the medial lets you make comments on articles because it drives up interaction, and leads to more page hits and therefore higher advertising revenue. Not because of some idealistic reason you've come up with."

Strangerland. Do you have some involvement with the media that makes your statement correct? You actually have no idea right? How about you just stop complaining and let the GOVT do what they need to do.

Posted in: COVID vaccines to be available to all under 65 in Japan at same time See in context

Hey how about all the people on here who leave negative comments such as "I'm not holding my breath" instead of just a complaint give a resolve to the issue. Te reason the media lets us make a comment on articles is partly due to authorities involved reading the comments and getting ideas from them. If you don't have an idea on how to help don't comment at all. Yes the roll out of the vaccine is slow but with 80% of the people on here who leave such comments the GOVT is dammed either way as if they rushed to get it out and there was a screw up you would have been moaning about that too.
