Posted in: YouTube cuts off Russell Brand's ad revenues after sexual assault allegations See in context

Accusations are just that, to cancel this guy, hang him out to dry like the press have done is unfair. YouTube cancelling his income stream based on unfounded accusations. If you’re attacked or assaulted report it to the police don’t go crying to some low life reporter!

Posted in: Japan court rejects damages claim by woman over same-sex benefits See in context

If the benefits can be claimed by any same sex couple then that leaves the door open to benefit fraud and exploitation of a system previously set up for normal married couples. Every Tom Dick and Harry plus the rest are going to claim and it’s coming out of our taxes!

He is old enough to know better, which could mean there could be more to this story still to come. He hasn’t been prosecuted yet.

He may well have just felt sorry for the tired passenger. In contrast, women have to be careful what they wear so as to not distract other drivers.

Posted in: Japan's real wages fall in November at sharpest pace in 8 years See in context

people may complain about wages and price increases here but compared to the U.K it’s actually not too bad. The price increases there are simply staggering right now even if you earn a good salary. In Japan you can survive on a lower salary somewhat easier than other countries.

Service hasn’t been great it has to be said especially with that outage. As a Rakuten mobile customer I can say that if you don’t mind have one or zero bars on your phone frequently then please do take advantage of their “unlimit” service.

Posted in: Italian detainee dies in apparent suicide at Tokyo immigration See in context

If you wish to see the reality of a Japanese detention centre you only have to see Thomas Ash’s incredible award winning film about Ushiku immigration in Ibaraki. The short trailer on YouTube paints a picture of misery for detainees secretly interviewed who cannot go home but cannot be allowed to enter Japan legally either.

Posted in: 1 in 4 singles in 30s not willing to marry: Japan gov't survey See in context

Not too many women will enter a marriage to a man who does not have a stable reasonably well paid job. The economy is littered with agency jobs, contracts, baito, dispatch etc. if the economy and job prospects perk up marriage and children will follow.

Posted in: Sri Lanka trainee takes maternity leave, gives birth in Japan See in context

As elephant200 said, the fact they don’t get any form of Japanese nationality and the child may be returned to Sri Lanka exhibits all the hallmarks of a dwindling population.

Surely, if we don’t have more new citizens or at least encourage parents to have children, with no one paying into the pension system it will eventually collapse.
