They all recognise that Japan is not really a democracy.

they know about the Nippon Kaigi shadow govt.

Corporate Japan has demonstrated that it can’t be trusted.

Low bows and Gomen nasai’ doesn’t work.

It is the Japanese shadow Govt at work doing their thing.

Sleaze, dishonesty and grift is standard state of play in Japan.

And no-one ever will be held accountable.

I used to book based on price and schedule.

These days when I book a flight I check if it’s scheduled as a Boeing or an Airbus.

you can probably guess how I make my choice.

Posted in: 2 vice ministers from LDP's biggest faction quit in escalating scandal See in context

So out of a total of 557 million, one guy admits to 100,000 another to 700,000. So where did the remaining 556 million go.

I noticed that last week Mr Aso asserted that he would NOT be disbanding his faction. Clearly not to him or his group. Guess his lot must be squeaky clean then.

Posted in: Japan Airlines pilots 'unaware of fire' at first See in context

Seems to me the JAL crew did exactly as they were trained to do, resulting in ZERO loss of lives in very extreme circumstances.

the captain has to assess and give the order for a controlled evacuation. in this case 3 doors on an 8 door plane.

Opening the other 5 doors would have seen significant casualties.

well done to the entire crew.

and to those who have commented that that the pilot should have seen something, even if he had (which is pretty much impossible). At that stage of his approach there was absolutely nothing he could have done.

Posted in: Prosecutors building criminal cases against Japan's ruling party accountants See in context

prosecutors turn up unexpectedly to ‘search’ premises after giving notice of intent to do so. Wonder if the media presence tipped off those inside. (Hope they all took their shoes off at the genkan).

And now act 2 of this farce. Investigation turns to the accountants.

Hmm. Don’t expect anyone to question who supplied the accountants with the zombie figures.

Act 3 being set up. Plausible deniability all round.

Ac 4. Game over. Business as usual.

Bizarrely, bottled water is even more expensive! Use a vending machine? Over 200¥ a liter. Often much more. I’ve seen “boutique” water in Tokyo at 500¥ for 500ml.

Ogura, however, has said that careful consideration must be given if the law is to be amended as the current legislation only encompasses abusive acts by parents or guardians.

say what?

as you carefully consider more children, young people and women are being groomed and abused.

can’t help but wonder if he might have something in the cupboard he’d like to remain “private”

They need to do the same as the UK did when after Jimmy Saville died there was a huge police investigation into historical abuse resulting in lots of arrests and prosecutions not just have another pointless ministerial meeting.
