Posted in: With legal team shake-up, Ghosn seeks punchier defense See in context

A good move by Ghosn. He needs someone to go at the Nissan cronies as hard as they're coming at him.Shake the trees and see what falls out defense. My ex-law clerk student once told me not to let problems go to trial, but in this case, I'm sure he'd make an exception.

Posted in: Ghosn hires new defense team in change of strategy See in context

I think the photo shows the old defence team

Yeah,you're right.No-one looks 73 there and it states whom they are.Hopefully his new team doesn't look so defeatist as this previous mob. They look like they are thinking of the fallout when they go back to work with the prosecutor's office.Will they be shunned or what? Aside from taking Ghosn's money, what did they achieve?

Were they press-ganged into the job? Hopefully they're a case of not judging a book by its cover... for Ghosn's sake.

Only two years? Something must've happened.

Something did. Money.

He wanted a pay raise commensurate to what he believed he's worth.And she/her handlers said hell no.

Posted in: Trump, not especially vigilant on diet, declared 'in very good health' See in context

When his whole presidency has been a lie,why would you expect his health to be truthful? Looking at him tells you he's not in decent shape.The long ties that curve around his gut? Medical licenses should be struck for just lying.

Haven't been back to Sydney in almost six years,but living in the eastern,northern suburbs are generally not that bad.Once you'd go west,would be something different.

Posted in: 'Invasion Day' protests draw thousands on Australia's national day See in context

But claiming that they were invaded makes about as much sense nowadays as Brits getting mad at the descendants of the Romans and Vikings. Current generations owe no debt of guilt, land and reparations to what happened generations ago. If some people choose to feel guilty of their own volition, that's their choice.

That is some serious in denial white privilege attitude.So that's your same "thought" toward what happened with millions of Africans being transported to the United States,is it? "I wasn't partaking so I'm good,not my problem." Well done.Your schooling served you well.

Posted in: Osaka wins Australian Open title; rises to No. 1 in world rankings See in context

The smile after she shook the umpire's hand can't be beat.After the uproar of her maiden GS breakthrough, the sweet taste of this win will erase any pyrrhic victory feeling of her U.S. Open win.Good on her.

Posted in: Trump agrees to end government shutdown without border wall money See in context

The lightweight caved as expected,so what was all that about then? The Mexicans were supposed to pay for it and now no-one will. If I were bored I'd read the usual suspects defense of this.But I'm not,and being in denial a la Trump is not healthy.

Posted in: Renault expected to play safe with French replacements for Ghosn See in context

Replacing one foreigner with another is not what Nissan wants.Taking back the reins of their company by any means necessary is their goal.This "Asia expert" does not advance that happening.

If only 35% of white American women voted for Hillary Clinton costing her the election,you know damn well Kamala has no chance of winning the presidency as a black female.Never say never? Well I'm saying she'll never.Ain't gonna happen.

Posted in: Do you think the 10-day Golden Week holiday period from April 27 to May 6, during which the imperial succession is scheduled to take place, is a good idea? The travel industry is eager to take advantage of the unusual business opportunity, while a survey has indicated that people who welcome the holidays and those who do not are nearly evenly divided. See in context

I wanna leave the country but with the crazy inflated rip-off prices,it's highly unlikely.Glad I went outside Japan @ Xmas instead.If you're in the travel industry or money isn't a problem,you'll be for it.

Posted in: Ghosn again asks for bail; promises not to flee, pay for security guards See in context

A lotta people are against Ghosn based on...? Concrete evidence?The prosecutors leaks? Nissan's accusations? Because he's in jail? Or you read the Japanese right- winged newspapers version of events and came on here to thumb him down?

Nissan aren't doing what they're doing to just go and merge with Renault.Otherwise they wouldn't have gone to the trouble to get Ghosn locked up. Lol two times.

Well not interested in those 2 anyway. Federer vs Nadal would draw a full house at whatever time.

Yushin's mother was also home but no charges were brought against her.

Posted in: May seeks to end Brexit stalemate after winning confidence vote See in context

Everyone knows that if there were a 2nd referendum, many of the jokesters who voted Leave would change to Remain,tilting a Remain. So instead of taxpayers monies being wasted,just unilaterally cancel the Brexit. Democracy is starting to look outdated of recent anyway going by world leaders.

I've coined the fake smiles as the "misekake" ones.When you've lived in Japan long enough,you can read them. I mean...do you want an equivalent scowl from back home lol?

Posted in: Trump says he has 'no idea' if deal can be made with Pelosi See in context

TAP is experiencing the same c@ckblocking that Obama had to deal with from the republicans when he was in office.

The president did not tip his hand Saturday on whether he will move ahead with an emergency declaration 

He's all fluff,no substance.He won't declare an emergency.TAP knows he has no legitimate grounds for one.

When is the FBI going to do something about The Accidental President? Can you imagine the madness if Obama would've been like him? Surely they'd have set him up to being taken out as retribution.TAP has brought the presidency into disrepute and is owned by foreign adversaries.That is a no-no.
