Posted in: Suga says he has never put Olympics first and that IOC has final say See in context

He's right you know. He puts himself first. Not the public, not the government he's failing to lead. I still believe a stray cat would be far less damaging than this self serving goat.

Posted in: Two different Olympic scenes: Inside and outside the National Stadium See in context

"I've been tested every day."

Lucky you, obviously getting someone else to pay. If we were to get tested daily we'd be broke in a week!

Posted in: Pfizer and BioNTech to donate vaccines for Olympic athletes See in context

So those of us who live here and pay tax can get stuffed then. That's what this 'donation' implies.

Posted in: Emirates expects to fly 70% of normal capacity by winter, CCO says See in context

Dubai's Emirates does not have a domestic market that can cushion against international border closures

Stating the bleeding obvious. Neither does Singapore Airlines.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 609 new coronavirus cases; 884 in Osaka See in context

Just think how much lower that artificially low number would be if we could get vaccinated! Hellooooo IOC! Why aren't you getting your brown paper bags of cash out to make it happen?!?!?

Posted in: Nurses say they are needed elsewhere, not at Tokyo Olympics See in context

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga suggested that nurses who have quit their jobs could help with the Olympics, although some resignations are tied to the stressful work dealing with coronavirus patients.

Can we install a stray cat as prime minister? Would be far less damaging than this insensitive old goat.

Posted in: Canadian athletes to have vaccine access before Tokyo Games See in context

A shame, they were the first NOC to say we're not coming last year. Bottled out this time. Cash obviously a higher priority than containing the spread of the virus.

Posted in: Summer bonuses at Japan firms to fall 1-3% on year due to coronavirus See in context

A bonus is what it says it is, a bonus. Extra on top! So considering the epic mess the world has been in, 1-3 % is peanuts, really

Yep, I've never had a summer bonus. Stop whining.

Posted in: The Tokyo Olympics will go on, but in name only See in context

Or, more likely, nothing more than a giant sigh of relief.

Indeed. We'll start seeing realistic case numbers published then too. The current numbers are missing a zero at the end of each day's announcement.
