And I would retort, free book editors, Tibeten prisoners, Uzbek people (millions) the head of Interpol, South China Sea, give free access to the Internet. Stop percussion of religion. The list goes on. Is China actually aware of this stupidity of this urge?

Posted in: Ninjas 'sneak' into Abe's office to ask for tourism promotion See in context

The Olympics opening ceremony will be absolutely hilarious. It has everything Mario, Ninjas who hopefully can been seen. School girls miming while not being paid. It's so funny, what's next? I would suggest a line up of CEOs receiving gold medals for not being arrested followed by a precession of politicians who should be arrested. In tights.

A dentist nearly killed me a doctor had no idea what to do my daughter was given the answers for her test, it really isn't at all a modern functioning society.

Always uneasy visiting a doctor in Japan now I know why, they are a doctor because their dad and grandad were, not because they have any aptitude or skill.

If you have to pay for it, probably not being a nice person. Not judging. Ok yes I am. It's funny the President f the USA has to pay for sex. Guess his mojo doesn't include his wife.

Yes the trajectory I'm afraid will be dig in. And in the face of common sense. Those in power will fain innocence while being upset that the rest of the world doesn't understand and are attacking Japan. Seen it again and again. They are extremely sensitive.

Flight risk? Are you insane, how? His face is well known? Although a false nose would probably fool the police. Ok I get it now. This is so badly handled exposing both the legal system, company governance and government ineptitude. He refuses to confess, prosecutors have nothing just a note from Nissan saying please lock him up...because? Not really sure but lock him up thank you.

Posted in: Court rejects Ghosn's appeal to end detention See in context

It's not as if he organised a tax (payer loss), funded land purchase or changed a law to get his friend a unneeded vet school, nor did he pressure the finance ministry to change paperwork. All of which I believe is illegal and nobody charged, but the CEO of a private company that's made a paperwork blunder, if that?, the CEO is detained indefinitely. Note to self get a government job, and spend,spend, spend. Don't help a Japanese company or its jail, jail, jail.

This is ridiculous. So the man who saved a billion dollar company, got paid and oh my god? He has cash? Art? An appartment? Shame on him shame. At the most a peg wood wall and uncomfortable small chairs. I'm guessing he also used knives and folks. Damn this foreigner damn him.

Yes they did but they have been very busy working long hours in the interim and that is priceless. Successful local companies are in veritably once successful international companies, that is until Japanese management gets involved.

Posted in: All 9 private-sector execs of state-backed fund to resign over 'too high pay' dispute See in context

The mass resignation at the fund, created just three months ago, is likely to lead to a suspension

3 months is all they needed to gobble up enough tax payer money. Now resign having achieved their goal. Next move on to another. No transparity no accountability just blatantly greed. It's no wonder the government need to increase tax as it has absolutely no intention of fiscal responsibility.

Wait a minute, I'm still waiting for him to explain why? And get my understanding as to why it's necessary at all? There are bigger more urgent problems than this. Seems to be a personal crusade and as a PM he should really be more concerned about citizens work life balance. Minimum wage, he seems to have forgotten his pledge for child care, his urge for wage rises....pathetic.

Posted in: Ghosn, Kelly formally charged over financial misconduct; Nissan also indicted See in context

Yep arrest the foreign people, and charge a company? See very clearly what's going on. If you are involved with a company that are underhanded as a foreign worker you go to jail and the Japanese management get at best a suspended sentence. This week alone a company had 51 undocumented employees they get detained indefinitely while the company are not even named. Think about working in Japan? Turn left it's not worth it.

Posted in: Japan's economy shrank at 2.5 percent annualized rate in July-Sept period See in context

It's artificial 3 biggest economy! Fudging the books maybe, but it's getting so bad that even this no longer works. The reliance on a shrinking population to spend more is not working. Raise the minimum wage, actually make enforceable laws to give people free time. Rather than legally increase the amount of overtime. Is it me, why are the government so focused on making life suck?

Posted in: Ghosn planned to oust CEO before his arrest: report See in context

So number 2 (no one likes being No2) dropped No 1 into number 2, now number 2 is neck deep in No2, with no excuse for being No 2. Rule 1 if you can't do your job...walk away! Or in this case make an excuse to get government backing and arrest No1 but I have to say he is still No2.

Comedy gold, now the inept second in command hooked up with prosecutors to arrest his boss well not arrest as they can't find evidence, just hold him without charge. And what's next? Seems it wasn't such a well thought out plan after all.

@expat, that is exactly what a sneaky foreigner would do, think the prosecution are in fear of what you suggest. It's not like his face is well known? If anything he would break in Nissans head office and open a bottle. Would be funny if an uncharged person was not in permanent custody.

Utter madness, old people grumpy old people with too much time to make rules that are completely bizarre. I shave my head but am required to wear a swim cap why? Because it's the rule, it's cold wear stockings No, it's the rule. How about heating the school in winter then? Or perhaps AC in summer, I actually thought schools were prisons when I first got here, then I discovered there is not much of a difference.

Posted in: Japanese firms see trade war, sales tax pressuring economy in 2019: poll See in context

Shinzo has his job because of his family connections he didn't get it because of skill. In Japan being a leader is bestowed not because of actually being concerned for the population that are mear surfs to be paid little and taxed extravagantly. To be fair you can't buy two jets to fling oneself around the world without taxing everybody and at every opportunity fill ones snout from other people's misery. But don't fret in a few days we can all enjoy our Premium Friday.
