Many of the nations that joined hands with Brunei in that TPP are looking pretty toothless right now. Some of these nations claim to believe in “human rights” and “democracy” - Australia, NZ, Canada etc. Some of them may whisper little protests, but ultimately will all just look the other way and continue dealing with this disgusting regime. Money trumps human rights.

Nothing but a racist, shrivelled-up, hysterical old fascist. Canvassing election funds from foreigners ( the NRA) to wind back Australias WORKING gun laws is despicable.

Depraved rulers with a barbaric "religion". Luckily for Brunei, these issues don't come into calculations when you are oil-rich and a member of the TPP. Member states like Australia, Japan, Canada and NZ will all just look the other way.

Heartbreaking, sickening and shocking news. They are saying there could be 50, 60 or more dead. That figure may rise way more with possibly more terrorists on the loose. This was a meticulously planned terror attack.
Quiet New Zealand will never be the same again.

Burn in hell, evil child molester. Shame on the former Prime Ministers - crooked Tony Abbott and the disgraced John Howard and ex-Deputy PM Tim Fischer - for their unwavering support for Pell throughout the trial. It was a “witch hunt”, they said. Disgraceful.

Trump : "Shinzo, jump!"
Abe : "How high, Master?"

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had given him"the most beautiful copy" of a five-page letter in which Abe nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize for opening talks and easing tensions with North Korea.
Trump and Abe really are the most deluded and laughable “leaders” in the world. They are made for each other!

I wonder if all the male police who use sex workers are also “reprimanded” and have their pay cut?

These would be brilliant Halloween masks, but at 300000 yen, I think I'll wait till the price comes down!

Do most Japanese know about the attack on Darwin? No. And neither do most Australians.
Ossan, it is pretty clear you don't know much about the Darwin bombings, but most Aussies certainly do. The two events most people associate with Darwin historically are the Japanese attacks, and Cyclone Tracy in 1975.

Well done to Naomi! Brilliant performance all through the tournament, and will be the first of many Majors for her I reckon.All class. And let's stop talking about what nationalities she has.
But what a petulant grub Williams is. Bringing up the child card out on the court "... I have a daughter you know..." while abusing the umpire, acting hysterically and smashing racquets was beyond low. The woman has zero class. Equally matched by the lowlife crowd booing Naomi and cheering on Williams.

Trump showing yet again what a despicable and disgusting individual he is.

Bit harsh there, Smith! Honda will do well - Shinji Ono and even old “King” Kazu both performed well at Sydney FC in the A-League, attracting more local and Japanese fans. Honda should do the same in Melbourne, and hopefully boost the profile of soccer in Australia, which is in a slump it must be said. All seems positive here.

Saudi Arabia has also ordered roughly 15,000 Saudis studying in Canada to leave.
Surely a good thing for Canada. Let's hope they all end up in the U.S. No travel bans on Saudis remember, Trump loves that regime.

Shame on the Japanese government for refusing to join the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Instead, all these hypocritical nations with nuclear weapons - who have no intention of giving them up - will be attending this event. Slap in the face from the Japanese government again to the hibakusha.

Trump told The Sun newspaper that he felt unwelcome in London because of protests
Poor petal. Trump - you are not welcome pretty much ANYWHERE in the world (except for perhaps Israel) because you are a sleazy, creepy grub.

Well done Croatia! Here’s hoping they are soon crowned World Champions! They dug deep and found 2 goals. Just glad it didnt go to penalties.
Great Cup from the Three Lions. With the youngest team tyere, they will only get better now and will be a big chance next time.
@ old man - time to let it go about the cleaning up, that story has had its 5 minutes and its become tedious

Correction: it is the “other children” that are requesting his remains, not the fourth daughter.

Rather disturbing that the daughter and wife want this monster’s remains. They should be disposed of by the government, lest he is turned into a martyr as Disillusioned suggests, or has some sort of shrine made for him.

Well played to the three lions, they really are shaping up as a big chance. A lot to like anout them, AND they usually dont spend the whole game rolling around on the grass like other “big” teams. If they dont win it this time, how good are their kids going to be in 4 years?! I’m going with a France v England Final.
@ old man 13 -
Compare that to the Japanese fans, including the players, who spotlessly cleaned up their mess before leaving the stadium.
Can we really just let this go now? Everyone has read and heard enough.

Well done Belgium! Thoroughly deserved. Would be nice to see them hold the Cup for the first time.
Neymar pretty much spent the entire world cup writhing around on the ground like a worm! Happy we dont have to watch him any more.

They are a team of weak cheats and grubs, Stones is right. Sadly with the Cup expanding, they will likely be at every future edition.
Football is heading in a poor direction with the antics of South Americans - and others - getting away with blatant cheating and intimidating refs.
