In 1976 I attended the British F1 race at Silverstone with a lady I shouldn't have been there with. I was caught on TV cameras and this was seen by the lady I should have been with, kinda put me on the spot you might say.

They are there to play football, nothing else. If they want to play stupid games let them go back home and play them.

Completely pointless. I'm more likely to get COVID on a squalid, nasty old train with two carriages jam-packed with commuters and students than I am in a hotel.

The hotel is more likely worried about you spreading around the virus which you picked up on your nasty old train.

Posted in: Remains of 3 people found in burned-out car in Yokosuka park See in context

I imagine it will turn out to be a murder/suicide with the father using a charcoal burner in the car to kill himself and two children and it then went out of control setting the vehicle alight. I may be wrong but it won't change the fact that they are sadly all dead. I hope that the children at least were unconscious before burning to death.

Somewhere there is probably a grief-stricken mother.

Are you guys gonna continue your hatred and negativity forever? Let it go.

They are just attention-seeking and in the process making themselves look extremely foolish.

So, accusing others of hatred and negativity is not impolite but accusing others of attention-seeking and making themselves look foolish is impolite?

The workings of your mind are beyond my understanding. Seems that application of the moderation policy is random at best.

So let me get this straight, the guy burned himself because of abes funeral which was caused by the unification Church and Korean involvement.

No, he burned himself because he's crazy and that's all he'll be remembered for.

Anyone saying that people are smoking everywhere haven't lived here in years.

Most restaurants now ban smoking completely the rest have closed in smoking areas.

Smoking in public on the roads while walking has been prohibited in most cities and wards and will get you a fine if caught.

I haven't seen an office or business that still permits smoking in at least 5 years and those that do have a dedicated location usually outside.

Malls etc.. have designated rooms far From the general public if even that now as most are closed and now moved outside hidden behind the mall someplace.

This is not the Japan of 30, 20, or even 10 years ago, things have changed.

Absolutely right.

As for this:-

If you can’t make your point without lying, please don’t bother at all.

Accusing someone of lying when they are so obviously right and you are so obviously wrong beggars belief.

Her arrest on suspicion of forcible disruption of business is just a convenient charge to hold her whilst other, hopefully much more serious, charges are being considered. Same when killers are first charged with abandoning a body in order to hold them until further charges are decided upon.

Just to complete the report:

"A statement from Scotland Yard said: “Muhammad Khan, 28, of Barleycorn Way, Tower Hamlets, was charged on Saturday, September 17, with an offence under Section 4A of the Public Order Act; behaviour intending to cause alarm, harassment or distress."

"A 19-year-old man allegedly exposed himself and pushed into mourners from behind as they waited in the line at Victoria Tower Gardens on Wednesday. Adio Adeshine is said to have gone into the River Thames in an attempt to evade police before coming out and being arrested. He was remanded in custody on Friday after appearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of breaching a sexual harm prevention order."

If any of the abductees were still alive then Kim would have tried to use them as a bargaining tool of some kind. He hasn't.

You are standing at the end of a three mile line that is moving a meter a minute. The wind is blowing against you at 4 nautical knots. How many hours until you reach your destination? Please show your calculations for full credit.

Fascinated by your use of the term "nautical knots" so I Googled it. I suggest you do the same.

A knot is one nautical mile per hour.

It's like an orgy of Britishness.

And what's with arresting people for protesting.

On 9th September you wrote:

A woman who always did her duty for the country .RIP

Sad to see snide comments on the death of a 96 year old woman.

Could you not put them aside for at least a day and respect this lady.

I'm not British but she deserves respect.

Somewhat schizophrenic don't you think?

Now that thousands have been evacuated into Russia putin will be retaliating soon against Ukraine.

It's gonna get worse .

When? After North Korea delivers the men and munitions Putin needs?

Russia has relied on the threat of its nuclear arsenal for too long and have forgotten how to fight a conventional war, especially with an increasingly mutinous army.

The conspiracy stories still spin today on who bombed the World Trade Center. My family was there on the day and survived.

The WTC was destroyed by Saudi Arabian terrorists who entered the USA unchallenged, learned to fly passenger aircraft at US flight schools showing little or no interest in how to land or take off and nobody saw anything wrong. They then boarded commercial flights as passengers whilst carrying weapons.

I'm glad to hear that your family was unharmed.
