Posted in: Brexit back in crisis as EU warns UK not to tinker with pact See in context

Yet another show of UK arrogance from the buffoons who hoodwinked the British public into this whole Brexit thing. Look at the slump of the British pound since the vote took place and the decline of British shares around the Globe to see whether this is a good thing for Britain, its already cost anyone with investments in the UK an unrecoverable amount. As another poster commented, these guys have made their bed and now will lie in it. (I'm a British expat watching the slow but steady decline of my homeland with horror)

Posted in: COVID-19 vaccine latest flashpoint in White House campaign See in context

Trump insisted he hasn't said a vaccine could be ready before November, although he said so repeatedly and as recently as Friday.

The president then proceeded to say what he had just denied ever saying.

Just about sums it up really

Posted in: See-through toilets See in context

Walls of glass in a toilet, difficult to keep clean and will show everything inside when not in use. Looking a toilets and sinks not the nicest thing in a park. There must be other (security?) motives for this unless it is just a design stunt to draw attention or sponsored by the glass supplier. The technology is not particularly new

Ridiculous to be bickering at a time like this. They should all act like adults and get the job in hand done. Not the time to be scoring party political points

Posted in: Pandemic derails Abe's strategy to revive regional Japan with tourism See in context

It is sadly inevitable that there will be many business failures this sudden pandemic is a game changer.

I visit Japan twice a year for a total of a month and just can't get there at the moment. I stay in hotels, eat out, visit sites and shop. So there is just one tourist income that us cut off. It's heart breaking.

However I continue to browse hotel prices on line and to be honest haven't seen any reduction in price whatsoever.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 260 new coronavirus cases See in context

n1k1. Sympathy for you an awful situation to be in. I love visiting Japan and can't wait to be there again once it's safe, but being there during a pandemic would be a whole other story. Be strong, stay safe

Posted in: Twin towers to be built around Tokyo's Shinjuku Station See in context

The station is one of the busiest in Japan, used by about 3.8 million people per day.

I thought it was the busiest station in the World, which ones are equally busy?

The station connects to several department stores and underground shopping malls, making passage around it complex and hard to navigate.

Can't imagine that building a tower either side is going to make it any easier to navigate the low levels around the station

Posted in: Go To travel campaign thrown into disarray after minister's remarks See in context

What a confusingly written article. The first four paragraphs in particular. The article is as confusing as the scheme itself.

Local government leaders had voiced concern about the initiative, as they feared that the campaign could bring the virus to their regions from the metropolis.

This is why the scheme should just be cancelled. First rule of virus control - avoid unnecessary travel. Scheme pays people to do the total opposite. Wait until the virus is gone

Easing restrictions doesn't mean its over it just means there is room for you in the ICU......

President Trump never wears a mask but follows other cautionary approaches and hasn’t been infected until now! That’s a clear evidence that you can be safe even without a mask as long as nobody coughs or sneezes on your face

I never read such a load of Tosh. He's probably the most protected person on the planet so this means nothing. If he's so smart about the virus why are so many of his people dying

Canadians have been very good about wearing masks and staying home

Ashley Shiba.

Not from where I sit (in Canada's capital), the road outside my house never ceased being busy especially at weekends and I see few people passing wearing masks. The general sentiment amongst many Canadians seems to be ok what is it I'm allowed to do, I'll do a bit more as I'll probably get away with it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not critical of your points in general but just pointing out that Canadians generally have not handled this very well. But if course, being Canadians, they wont' be able to refrain from congratulating themselves on how well they've done.

Moderator: Readers, Canada is not relevant to this discussion.

Posted in: Office cluster pushes Tokyo coronavirus cases to 6-week high of 55 See in context

"Clusters in the workplace have become a big problem lately"

Really, what a surprise (not)

"The latest case tells us that offices can become clusters too, so we'd like everyone to think again about what a new normal for the workplace should look like."

Ooh really? That is even more surprising (not)

Really the level of logic expressed by these statements is profoundly astonishing

Posted in: Suntory CEO says 20% of restaurants may fail as coronavirus slams Japan's dining scene See in context

Yes there will be some very sad losses. Yes there will be an adjustment of people's habits for a while. But there will be a treatment and vaccine found at some point then things will quickly return to some sort of normal. The important thing is to find the cure and vaccine. I feel extremely sorry for anyone whose business is being wrecked by something totally out if their control, a real tragedy.
