Posted in: England reopens pubs after lockdown See in context

Daily Mails headline was celebrating the fact that 15 million pints will be drunk.

Priorities eh.

Of course people are delighted to get some freedom.

Enjoy it responsibly

Each day you think you can't be shocked any more and then something else comes along.

Absolutely vile.

What has happened in America. It's mad

Hangover game.

Looking interesting for next year with Liverpool, City and a resurgent Man U.

I fully agree with this, but it's now hard to carry my usual 10 cans of beer and 3 bags of potato chips

I read the EU had put Algeria on a list of countries that were OK.

Half measures come back to bite you when you are dealing with a virus.

The lack of real leadership and clear messages have caused this mess.

Trump isn't able to handle this.

Posted in: Japanese start traveling en masse on 1st advisory-free weekend See in context

After my wife and teenage daughter had another crazy row last night I swore I would drive up to Aoki Kong in Jakub, stay the night incommunicado.

Had no idea there were travel restrictions.

Lucky they didn't argue last week

Posted in: Suspect on run after 1 New Zealand police officer killed, 1 wounded See in context

Yes I meant both the Irish and New Zealand police don't carry guns.

Even in the dark times of the IRA, they didn't need them. Even in a drug cartel murder feud they don't need them for their day to day work.

And no one in Ireland wants to see the police armed.

We don't need guns.

Only a sick society needs guns

Posted in: Suspect on run after 1 New Zealand police officer killed, 1 wounded See in context

How very sad. A policeman was shot and killed in Ireland yesterday too.

Deepest sympathies to both men who died serving their communities.

And Mr Marx not one person in either country would wish the police to be armed in their everyday lives as a result.

Our societies don't require them.

More shame on the USA.

Trump has really done a good job on making America great again.

Racism, gun nutters, the envy of the world

Posted in: 'Move on' - British PM tries to draw line under adviser row See in context

Maybe he should use

"move around" rather than move on as that is what Cummings did.

I'd be surprised if he can wriggle out of this with some pifflepaffle.

People are very angry

My daughter nearly had me locked up saying I had been abusive.

All I had done was take her smartphone.

It's tragic to hear news like this.

Posted in: Japanese reality show 'Terrace House' cast member dies See in context

My wife and 2 teenage kids are quite shocked by this. They all watch terrace house and really liked Hana.

This has happened too in the UK with a program called love island. At least 2 suicides from that.

I just don't understand what drives people to write such hateful, spiteful messages.

Do they feel better afterwards??

Anyway Rest in peace ✌️

When you see how hard it was for the poor sumo guy in getting a hospital you just thank your lucky stars it didn't fully hit.

How can that be possible

Supposedly it was a gay bar and as homosexuality is kept secret for the most part in Korea no one wants to admit being in those clubs.

How sad.

I met him when I worked in a depth store in Dublin in the 80s. He was so friendly and chatty to star struck teen. He was a big man in many ways. RIP

Posted in: Abe criticized over lounging-at-home Twitter video See in context

I suppose at least he didn't sing imagine!!

But poor Shinzo he can't get a lucky break.

He wanted to be a statesman, do the fun stuff like G 7 summits, Olympic games, where you do nothing just look statesman like and along comes this mendokusai virus and puts you on the spot.

Have some sympathy folks

Posted in: Coronavirus fears give rise to stigma in local communities See in context

This happened after Fukushima.

But I read it has happened in Germany, France and a few other places too.

The ironic thing is that I bet the ones complaining will be the first ones to disregard social distancing etc if it doesn't suit "their" wishes.

There are always a few... Sadly

Posted in: Aichi Prefecture to declare its own state of emergency See in context

It'sonlyrock. Time to chill out a bit. I think the fate of the general people is more important than your business but I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I have to close mine too.

We are not the only ones in pain but neither are we the worst off

Posted in: Many schools in Japan reopen after monthlong coronavirus shutdown See in context

You just wish there was some definite decisions being made. This wishy washy stuff isn't helping anyone.

Personally I think we should bite the bullet and shutdown for the next two weeks and try to get on top of it.

I'm self employed and would lose all my income but got to take the medicine.

Otherwise it's just going to go on and on.

And I have 2 teenagers eing greatly affected by this.

What was the point in bringing them to school getting their hopes up and then closing the school.

The incompetence is unreal.

If I keep my school open am I being irresponsible?

Some parents want it open some don't.

Some schools will remain open some won't.

Time for politicians to front up and show some leadership but for most of us in Japan we realize that isn't going to happen... sadly
