At this pace, all ministers will have been fired well before the "golden three years" are over. 

Time for Kishida to run for the shadows.

NHK don't know much about her (there isn't much to know), so in their reporting they emphasised her similarities to Thatcher (because, er, Truss once wore that scarf thing).

Posted in: Sri Lankan family seeks Japan panel review over detainee's death See in context

Sorry for stating facts but the main culprits of Ratnayake's death are the 99% of detainees who frequently fake illness in hopes to get a 仮放免 (provisional release, you hear this word 10x whenever you meet one)

I'd like to know which study you got that figure from.

Posted in: Sri Lankan family seeks Japan panel review over detainee's death See in context

All posts repeating "she did not commit a crime" are wrong.

I don't think anyone's "bleating" about her being detained for overstaying. Her family members are not seeking a review over their sister's detention; they're seeking a review over their sister's death.

Political cartoons wouldn't fly here either though they should make fun of a lot of these goofy politicians.

You've obviously never read the Asahi Shimbun. The other day I laughed out loud at 新キシラ looming above the Diet building.
