surely then they will not be required to pay their 市民税, CITIZEN tax.

And in the same breathe they are asking couples to make babies.
Utter lunacy what the corporations are doing to this country.

Nothing peaceful about their protest. They posted prior messages on social media channels to ‘prepare to go to battle’.

Absolutely spot on Spitfire.
The opposition party are so pathetically useless that the LDP can have scandal after scandal and just carry on as normal.

Dripping with hypocrisy and virtue signaling. Banning booze is understandable given their cultures but they’ve had 12years to decide things and banning it 2 days before the start is not an utter farce. I envisage more and more problems as the tournament goes on. And as for the FIFA head’s speech about ‘understanding the plight of gays and deaths of immigrant workers’ because he had ginger hair a long long time ago…..

I was skeptical about Rishi becoming PM due to his vast family wealth and ‘not knowing anyone working class’ but Truss is clearly not fit for purpose. That press conference merely highlighted the fact that she is out of her depth. The polls are clearly showing the Tories have zero chance of reelection and they did it to themselves. Though Boris may have had his issues he was heads and shoulders above this sorry lot. And I wouldn’t even trust Jeremy Hunt with my lunch. The guy that doesn’t even know his own wife’s nationality.

Must say I fully agree with ‘blue’ on this one and I’d wager most long-term foreigners do too.

This is type of business dealing is rife in all big industries in Japanese. Has been for decades.

Descendent - pretty detailed analysis there. You live on his street ? Know his mam ? Going drinking with Uncle Ichi ?

Sorry but the mother is as much to blame for this murder if not more. She deserves 15yrs too.
I’d suggest Akahori receive the same treatment she implemented towards that poor kid.

Make him work for free at the conbini every weekend for a year. Toilet duty. Might even give him a sense of responsibility.

Why isn’t there as much uproar about the World Cup in Qatar ?? Their human rights record seems to be irrelevant to certain circles.

Allowing the LDP to do an ‘internal’ survey is about as valid as the UFO sightings.

Chikatiko : it’s common knowledge if you’re aware of the workings of society here. He is spot on.

I honestly think Dentsu is untouchable in this country. It has strings attached to nearly every corner of Japanese society and no matter how many scandals arise, very little comes of them and they continue to get the big contracts time after time and carry on as normal.

Yeah unfortunately his views and way of thinking is quite rife throughout the country lead by a large number of politicians who basically spout this rubbish and still remain in their positions.

PS5 is easily the ugliest looking console in the last 20yrs. Hope they sort their design ideas out for a slim edition. Even then ¥50K is too steep for me.

Wasn’t he in Ichi the killer ?? Pretty messed up Japanese horror but had a bit of a cult following.

Seriously, what makes a 15yr kid want to do this to get the death penalty ?? Bullied?abused?school? She’s still just a kid.

but 2 felt the need to downvote that statement. I’m curious to know why ??
it is without doubt the most succinct point to this type of awful tragedy.

Honestly thought it was a decisive gesture that did not help the situation. I recall FIFA stopping the England players from wearing the poppies on the shirts in honour of the fallen soldiers. Something not quite right there….

Is there really any point in having elections here ? You’re all just going through the motions.

Utterly pointless election. The LDP has basically been in power bar one blip since the war. How is that a level playing ground. Any other nation it would be considered a dictatorship. Generations of previous youths and even todays 40-50yr olds have no interest in politics and simply don’t vote or they go with the flow and vote LDP if they do. No credible opposition to a one horse race. The whole political system needs overhauling.

And the extra $7.2 billion they offered to spend just before the election will come from The unicorn and fairy taxes perhaps.
scary times ahead for you Aussies.
