Felt pressure in Australia? Self- inflicted wound that could have been avoided by deflating his ego.

There is an Australian film named "Kenny" which deals with this subject in hilarious fashion.

They obviously have too much free time on their hands. Storyline sounds crap!

@PepperLunch

Might be a tall order to establish who the father is in view of her profession.

Maybe they can provide her with a safe sex course whilst in jail. So many couples cannot conceive, yet this cold hearted animal can throw away a baby like a piece of trash. Beggars belief.

The only thing that will overwhelm you in the summer is the humidity. Get a grip.

@ Rodney- the Chinese people love their leadership because to say otherwise is fraught with danger.

Wow, 79 years old and still trying to rort the system. Just pay your way as your (former) constituents do.

@Rodney- you ignore the principle of the matter.

@ Rodney- "Putin has 87% popularity."

But I wonder how many want to, but are too frightened to speak against the dwarf?

Evidence suggests that any dissent is dealt with summarily.

With the demise of her Netflix venture, no invitation to join the balcony, the B-grade actress must be rueing the lack of publicity- hey, but that's what she wanted isn't it? As difficult as it may seem, I am sure we will cope with their absence.

Posted in: Gov't confirms it will start accepting some foreign tourists in June See in context

Let's face the facts. It is about politics. Kishida is more concerned with his political future- bottom line.

Being led around by a flag waving robot? I think not. Not every tourist travelling independently is loud, rude and disrespectful towards Japanese customs and culture. (so just ban the Chinese and Americans!)

And of course China is squeaky clean and would never dream of interfering with other countries' internal affairs!

How long has Michael Leitch been living in a dreamland?

I'm sure some other teams are quaking in their boots at the thought of having to face the Blossoms?

Why not just keep away from the media and concentrate on improving yourself. Maybe the almighty sponsorship contract dollar is first and foremost.

Wong has harboured ambition to be Foreign Minister for many years. Albanese's recent failure to scrutinise behavioural matters enabled her to breathe a sigh of relief. She believes it is her god given right to direct Australian foreign policy. If Labour succeed, let the shambles begin.

When the little man says "look at that", do his lackeys with their pens and paper write "look at that?"

Posted in: Record 54% of Japanese students not eager to study due to COVID: survey See in context

From my experience, a significant number of teachers in Japan are stifled by bureaucratic processes and as a consequence, churn out robots rather than stimulating their students' imagination, initiative and creativeness.

I wonder how much the court costs were? Only winners here are the lawyers, as usual.

Another glaring example of Japanese workplace inflexibility. I also wonder if the stupidity of the employer exacerbated the employee's illness.
