Posted in: Johnson's Brexit plans in crisis after 3rd defeat in 2 days See in context

Ask any normal educated Brit is no deal brexit a good idea and they will all say no.

The only ones for a complete break away are older people harking for a time when brittania ruled the waves and insular xenophobes.

Seriously the EU are being kind to even entertain them

They have no plan. Nothing.

Boris the buffoon and his evil string puller Cummings

Posted in: Democrats slam Pence for staying at Trump hotel in Ireland See in context

I would have loved to see Pences face as he had to meet the openly gay Taoiseach if Ireland.

Maybe that's why he stayed so far away from Dublin. Might have been afraid to dine alone with him just in case he tried it on...

I climbed Happone in Hakuba during Obon. It was really busy.

I was surprised by the amount of older people who would struggle walking to the shops up there. Maybe because they could get a gondola most of the way.

Also it was very cloudy at the top with chances of lightning. I turned back just in case after 2 hours but most people have to get to the peak.

Think I was the only one not wearing all the hiking gear from Alpen etc.

Felt like a weirdo in a normal t shirt

Posted in: Relatives worried mass stabber was becoming recluse See in context

Where I live in the suburbs of Nagoya there are about 20 single older guys living quite near the school I run. Some will say hello, some ignore all interaction. One guy walked around the area harmlessly then disappeared. I heard he had touched up staff in the local family mart then was taken away and died within a week. Did he have alzheimers / dementia. I don't know.. Another old guy I used to exchange greetings disappeared over the spring holidays. He is probably languishing in a hospital somewhere. My heart bleeds for the families who have lost someone. But Japan has a ticking time bomb of frustrated, lost older men.. Impossible to police that. Don't no where this is going sadly.

Posted in: Lawyer for Ghosn slams 'outrageous' rules on seeing wife See in context

It's disgraceful end of story. Whether he is guilty or not. What's next no talking to his daughters? Where is amnesty international on this. If the Chinese, North Korean or even Venezuela were doing this there would be outrage. But also the French govt seems to have washed their hands of him too. He might be a nefarious character but seems a bit extreme. God help me if the Japanese cops ever come after me... Although while cycling today there was a cop car behind me and as your mind wanders while exercising I ruminate over were the cops behind me or after me. Might try teach it in my next lesson
