They don't face enough hostility.

Posted in: Cease-fire talks with Israel and Hamas expected to resume on Sunday in Qatar See in context

Hamas can end this tomorrow, all they have to do is hand over the hostages and surrender unconditionally. People in Japan will certainly understand that concept.

Hirohito is regarded by many in the UK as "the one who got away". He should have been added to the proceedings at Nuremberg.

> Tokyo War Trials not good enough for dispensing victors justice to him then ?

I said KORE everywhere in Japan - one of the very few words I knew when I first went there. Didn't seem to upset anyone!

BTW , what does baka gaijin mean ?

"Geez, I'm tired of hearing about her."

Why'd you read the article and go to the bother of posting then if you're so tired.

"I'm so pleased this drawn out affair has come to an end."

WHy on Earth are you reading articles and making posts about it then ? It would make more sense to ignore and avoid things you find tedious.

"If the white folks from the small island are so unhappy about a few of the candidates"

Who said we in the UK are unhappy about the candidates - most of us think it's an excellent thing that it's a very inclusive group of people !

My own worry is that whoever emerges won't be right wing enough.

Posted in: As pandemic Olympics come to a close, Japan asks: What did Games mean? See in context

I didn't watch a single event - the Olympics are a load of boring bollocks wherever they're held - sweaty semi naked oafs running about like idiots.

Posted in: Florida governor signs bill requiring moment for school prayer See in context

An American girl I know told me that every day in school she and her classmates had to "pledge allegiance" to the flag of the USA.

Does that really happen ? In public schools?

And here was me thinking that the USA was the Land of the Free

Strikes me as just as bad as requiring people to pray

Posted in: Mass vaccination site to fill vacant slots with police, other officials See in context

Here in the UK I've had two Pfizers - second one was six weeks ago - not a single side effect. Nobody I know has had any side effects from either Pfizer or AZ. It's hard to understand what all these reluctant Japanese are worried about.

ALL the more AZ vaccine for the rest of us if those daft Europeans, [against the advice of the European Medicines Agency and the WHO], are turning their noses up at it.

She's got no chance of a referendum - she herself at the time, stated the 2014 referndum was " once in a generation" . Boris will tell her to go and f*** herself

"Chose his parents" ? If that's possible then maybe you're just pissed off because you made a poor choice.

Posted in: Mother dies, 7-year-old daughter injured in leap from building See in context

The mother must have been going throught utter mental torment to do such a terrible thing - clearly the balance of her mind was deranged.

I think at least, some compassion is warranted but it seems to be in short supply in the previous comments

Posted in: Smoking diners to take it outside as Tokyo ban kicks in See in context

One of the things I liked best about Japan when I visited was that restaurants [ in Osaka anyway] had a section for the smokers and a section for the non smokers - seems a bit more civilised and reasonable than the total ban we have in the UK - after all non smokers do benefit from tobacco taxes.
