Posted in: 7-year-old girl missing in Chiba Prefecture See in context

As a Brit and Canadian it freaks me out to see the age at which kids are walking to school on their own in Japan, negotiating traffic and all the other dangers. I hope that this little one will be found quickly and unharmed. Thoughts for all directly involved in this. As a parent I can't begin to imagine the anguish........

Posted in: S Korea, Japan differ over summit plan in New York See in context

Instead of focusing on the negatives why not look at the potential. Seems like the press want to find problems like they seem to be encouraging WW3

Posted in: Charles III formally proclaimed king as sons reconcile See in context

Isn't it time to streamline all this pomp (and expense), everyone knows he will be king by watching TV or reading on line. Let the poor family grieve in private until the funeral. The average person in the UK is facing terrible economic hardship, stop wasting all this money. Harry and Meghan........

Constant little phrases like this is every article we read, almost seems that the press are willing WW3 to start

Posted in: Liz Truss vows tax cuts after winning vote to be next British PM See in context

As a Brit who has lived abroad for several decades I wring my hands as my country of birth lunges from one insanity to another. I don't envy her task in trying to rescue England from all of the things going on there now, most of all the legacy of the stupidity of Brexit. One only has to look at the value of the British pound now compared to its value the day before the Brexit vote for evidence of what a disaster this has been.

Posted in: Ukraine war shows West's dominance ending as China rises, Blair says See in context

Irresponsible speech. The West has allowed China to become powerful by giving away most of their manufacturing, based purely on corporate greed. Hard to find many things in North America that are not made in China

Pim, I always look forward to reading Alfie Noakes's comments they are always well informed, balanced and have depth.

Posted in: Households becoming less tolerant of surging food prices: study See in context

No mention of the businesses taking advantage of the situation and hiking prices arbitrarily. At my recent business insurance renewal I was informed that my insurers now have a $150 'company fee' which they apply to all policies 'to cover administration and other costs'. A lot of people making a lot of money by taking advantage of the various crisis situations

Posted in: Japan's industry minister negative toward banning Russian oil imports See in context

3.6pc, 8.8pc, these are tiny numbers. How about an economy drive and more renewable energy should be able to do without this altogether. Russia banning Japanese officials in other news, can Japan not do more?

Hard to imagine that with modern technology the Channel cannot be adequately policed to stop this happening. How desperate must these people be to risk this. RIP to those who lost their lives.

Good that the leaders have the common sense and restraint not to name China specifically whilst the press continue to whip up a frenzy with their constant mention of 'rising tensions' with China

Posted in: Former Princess Mako says marriage was a 'necessary choice' See in context

As a westerner this whole thing is totally unfathomable. Every single articles trots out the same line about the family financial dispute, which could be settled in the blink of an eye. For the press to deny this young lady the happiness of a normal wedding to the perrson she wishes to marry is disgusting.

I hope they will be able to get past this and have a happy life together. Wishing them every success and happiness.

Indeed, please tell us plebs who don't read Japanese what the real story is.

Let them be and let them try to find their own happiness.

Yes hard to imagine this is all really about the boyfriend's mother's finances.

Will she become royal again if they do allow women from the family to retain their royal status on marrying commoners. Is this really what this is all about?

Posted in: Trudeau projected to be re-elected but without majority See in context

$600m for what? To be in exactly the same position as before. Trudeau's ego knows no bounds and he loves to waste hard earned taxpayers money. Potentially four more years of narcissism. Not to mention the super spreader event organized by the very people who are supposed to be protecting the public.

I don't usually call out other lists but Cat Stevens your comments show a total ignorance of the geography of Canada and a complete and utter disregard for anyone who is immunocompromised or high risk from the Covid for other reasons.

Posted in: Vaccine minister Kono to run in LDP leadership race See in context

I thought that he would be a good candidate before the vaccine fiasco. Can't get past the thought that maybe he was set up for a fall. Publicly blaming young people for the issues with the vaccine when there were clearly so many other issues was not a smart move. Hope whoever wins will focus on keeping the population safe, providing adequate medical resources and speedy vaccines
