My gut feeling is she is a fraud on this. But she’s young, and a fine tennis player. I think she will learn from this, or has already. The whole world is suffering. She needs to I understand, and perhaps does now, that people don’t like to hear anyone whining, especially the richest woman athlete in the world currently

Taro’s looking spiffy in that suit and in good health. He’s there to strengthen Japan-UK relations aside from his G7 duties, and I personally think this is a very good thing.

No one likes a smart Alec, but to think of all the continuous anti-Olympic sentiment on here...perhaps this is when people finally accept that it’s going to happen, and that it will be carried out safely, and we can try and enjoy Summer.

Posted in: Coates: Tokyo Olympics to go ahead even in state of emergency See in context

And why wouldn’t it? it’s no secret to anyone now that the media often censor opinion that is not in line with their own beliefs. You only have to look at the surprise shocks of Trump and Brexit to acknowledge that. And so, who is to say, contrary to the anti Olympic polls, that there isn ‘t a silent majority of people in Japan and all over the world who are quite looking forward to the Olympics ? Word of advice: don’t believe everything you read in the papers., and here’s to a safe Olympics!

Open bars and restaurants, open flights, hold the Olympics. Tired of my fellow human race timidly walking around trying to avoid a virus, and holding everybody else back whilst they do it. I’m well aware it can be a nasty bug for some, so If you don’t like it, stay home! Your choice
