Yes, that is fair enough, The Prince's Trust ranks equal to the The Duke of Edinburgh's Awards.

Both inspire to create and achieve.

I must admit I have always been a supporter of Monarchy.

Since Queen Elizabeth II shook off this mortal coil, Monarchy has lost its mojo.

Hapless Harry along with the Duke of York handy Andy has highlighted the cracks.

King Charles III, brought more baggage than concord could carry, with Camilla, sorry to be vulgar and rude is akin to a mistress that cannot ever escape their own perfidy to Princess Diana,

“There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded,"

Wallace, where do any government tie that safety net

The most vernable, who affords only a cold shower and a freezing flannel.

Over a family able to fully appreciate warmth?

Bills, rent, mortgages?

That safety net is ultimately at the behest of the electorate at the ballot box.

We have a government that is bereft of any economic competence.

Coupled with an opposition that response is ambiguous and vague to the point of any circumstantial recourse irrelevant.

Collateral damage, the blanket nature associated with industrial action, a so called general strike will always be justified on pretence that its a placard for social justice.

What a load of hogwash.!!! total nonsense.

The most vernable, will foot the bill, those that desperately need social care, or essential operations.

The next generation that require a formal basic education.

All will be sacrificed at the altar of political Ideology.

Call it government (tory) and opposition, for heaven's sake cannot or will not define a man from a women.

The North Atlantic Treaty

Washington D.C. - 4 April 1949

https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/official_texts_17120.htm

NATO is a treaty!!!

It is not a means to politically encourage to right wrongs.

Sorry to rain politicly on a number of prarades.

Ukraine is not a member. First and foremost.

Never has been

So where does this live us, NATO politically cannot, as an entity under the Treaty, provide as a combined force front line logistics, full naval or aircraft support

Individually, well it is a matter of opinion.

The really is war, possibly all out

“I touched her breast, but I did not touch both of them.”

The sixty year old groper had better not rely/fall back to such a defence in court.

Posted in: Contracts in Tokyo Olympics bid rigging case totaled ¥40 bil, sources say See in context

Every association, to this fraud, bribery will be held accountable at every level tax payers money has been sacrificed to this financial horror show........

They suspect the collusion was connected with 26 open bids held from May to August 2018 for the rights to plan test events. These were awarded to nine companies, including Dentsu Inc. and fellow ad giant Hakuhodo Inc, as well as a consortium, for a total of 538 million yen.

The test events -- held so organizers can check for potential problems with operations, security and guiding audiences -- were carried out between 2018 and 2021 before the Summer Games were held after a one-year postponement due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And to add to the political swamp.

According to the sources, almost half of the 26 open bids only had one bidder. Prosecutors suspect that the former operations executive and other officials repeatedly updated a list of firms to use in arranging successful bidders.

The media briefings.

There is a bright side, sadly not for the J Taxpayer.

The IOC is institutionally corrupt to its very core, FIFA eventually were held accountable.

This behaviour will ultimately have consequences.

No, Johnson got under Putin's skin day one.

I suggest in a fit of temper, and irritation, red faced Putin full red mist reverted to type.

Toys hurled asunder.

Temper tantrum, steam hissing from both ears, Putin hands shaking reached for the Boris shut up missile launch key.

Lets be honest, Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland would declare a public holiday on the projectiles arrival...... yes/no

Posted in: Woman who served in SDF sues gov't, assailants over sexual harassment See in context

Ok justice demands for sexual assault defined,* attempted rape, fondling or unwanted sexual touching, forcing a victim to perform sexual acts, *serious criminal offences that warrant custodial sentencing.

So we can start with five Japanese soldiers be named and charged,

Her case is also being re-investigated by prosecutors who are weighing possible criminal charges after she lodged a complaint about the failure to indict the men involved, her lawyers said Monday.

This action must coincide with a public inquiry into the actions and subsequent failures of SDF investigation to fully hold these five Japanese soldiers fully accountable for the sexual abuse, indecent behaviour, admitted sexual harassment, Rina Gonoi, a former Self Defense Force member suffered.

Now the wider questions that need to be faced and fully answered, in Japan society when will women and girls be treated, accepted valued and respected as equal partners??????!!!!!

Is it any wonder Japan is depopulating?

I am not some hairy armed shaven headed feminist, I, as a women just want an even playing field, in pay, in education, simple equal opportunity.

Pretty please support Rina Gonoi plea for change. Rina has suffered enough. !!

It is the management structure that needs reform restructuring.

Ricky Kaminski13, nobody, country or otherwise can disagree with your heartfelt sentiments.

The world we both live in has evolved for better or for worse.

It is in our so called evolved intellect to accept change,

Facing forward.

Posted in: Japan to uphold apology if South Korea settles wartime labor issue See in context

This cynical crazy carousel of quote instance of a political need for regretful acknowledgement of an offence stops now.

The current Japanese people have devoted there lives to peaceful consistence.

With NK testing there ballistic missiles and developing weapons of mass destruction.

And to add insult to injury, if one care to remember SK has continued to spit and crass at Japan, its people over the blood soaked dictatorship of NK.

Posted in: Japan to uphold apology if South Korea settles wartime labor issue See in context

Japan and South Korea signed a treaty that restored relations.

It is not now for either SK or Japan to surreptitiously re-negotiate a signed treaty.

Only review within the signed treaties, that quote establishes obligations between two or more subjects of international law ...

Binding arbitration under the terms of the treaty agreement .

Japan to uphold apology if South Korea settles wartime labor issue.

No way, morally abhorrent, it is akin to suggesting a faustian deal.

Posted in: EU official says Russia shifting war focus to NATO and the West See in context

The global community, its people are in a state of apprehension, yes fear.

The threats of escalation to a nuclear stalemate, the battle field brutality cannot reveal a blood stained victor.

Then where does this leave us people?

We are left as the people in Ukraine to die the mud and mayhem of all-out war.

This is the consequence of dictatorship.

Awa no Gaijin

NATO cannot take a collative stance where members are concerned, the treaty is unequivocal.

Ukraine is not a member of NATO.

However, I understand you skepticism. Politics and war blur the red lines

These officers have been fired, and now will face the full weight of the judicial system.

The video footage is sickening, The complete loss of control on full display.

Lets not look to politically attempt to tag these acts of sheer brutality.

All will be allowed there day in court.

If convicted they must be made examples of.

Posted in: EU official says Russia shifting war focus to NATO and the West See in context

Ukraine is a battle ground, the human costs are harrowing appalling.

Europe/US has chosen to link arms and support defend Ukraine at increasing costs.

President Putin course of action has provoked this backlash.

His dictatorship has brought us all to the point of possible global conflict.

Ukraine is not a NATO member, so any suggestion that NATO should intervene is a serious breach of international law.

NATO has never taken a stance just warned of the consequences of failure to respond to clear Russian Government aggression.

Posted in: An organization has sent a petition with 11,127 online signatures to prosecutors seeking a reduced sentence for Tetsuya Yamagami, who has been indicted for the murder of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and asking that they consider Yamagami's upbringing and his mother's massive donations to the Unification Church in his trial. What's your view on this? See in context

If the crimes perpetrated by Mr. Yamagami are proven any extenuating circumstances deemed on conviction/sentencing will be a matter for the J judiciary.

The allegations are heinous, unlawful killing with malice, premeditated.

Ian I agree a number of NATO members would lobby, have been lobbying for a direct role, intervention.

The Treaty is unequivocal.

It would be dishonest to discount the nature of this conflict, and the fact that escalation could bring EU member states into direct conflict with Russian forces.

These are the choices I suggested, were soon to be faced with action or a policy associated with appeasement, fully Instituted in the vain hope of avoiding all out war

Bronco

I think your comment provokes quite rightly the question....

What is NATO?

https://www.nato.int/nato-welcome/index.html

NATO is not in a position under international treaty law to intervene collectively in this war, Ukraine is not a member.

Individual countries have taken it upon themselves, the decision to provide logistical as well as armaments/ heavy weapons.

However NATO cannot intervene directly.

Posted in: EU official says Russia shifting war focus to NATO and the West See in context

The actions of the Russian Government is a inevitable consequence of a shift or clash in political ideology.

The Global community, to the extent of the G7 have supported Ukraine with armaments/heavy weapons.

The European Union, acting as a Union with some exceptions have or are about to provide logistical support for the battlefield use of those armaments/heavy weapons leading to the possible supply of fighter jets

These are the choices, the possible outcome is still a matter of conjecture.

However the ticking clock for any form of change will rest on the Russian Government withdrawal.

Posted in: EU official says Russia shifting war focus to NATO and the West See in context

We are on opposite side of opinion. Bronco

The Russian Government created, when taking the decision to invade Ukraine wholesale.

The global community has slowly but decisively demanded that the Russian Government withdraw before a framework for any negotiated truce.

The die has been cast, politically, maybe there will be a window of opportunity that diplomacy can stall the process, halt Putin's dogs of war.

However, choices will still have to be made.

Posted in: EU official says Russia shifting war focus to NATO and the West See in context

The Russian Government has brought through aggression, threats of tactical nuclear war, crimes against humanity, the rape of children, the bombardment of civilian families, torture.

The dictatorship of Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin regime has created through its own actions the prospect of war in europe, and possibly a global conflict event that could have an existential threat to humanity.

There are two clear choices appeasement or collative engagement, sacrifice could well become inevitable.

That is the choice.
