Business demands the recruitment process look beyond the politics of gender diversity and at the skills/character quality potential of the prospective employee. Quota's are not the answer, equal opportunities requires a level playing field day one.

England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Gibraltar are not member states of the European Union. The United Kingdom has Treaty membership, hence the 2016 referendum covered a single voting area resulting in 17,410,742 votes to leave and 16,141,241 to remain.
If UK fails to leave on the 31st October, by hook or crook, well let not go there.

Jeffrey Epstein accusers are unlikely ever to see justice. I am sorry but whether Epstein took his own life or not, George Orwell, “If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.”

Bill Clinton has praised Epstein for his intellect and charitable work in magazine interviews. Flight logs have revealed the former US president took trips on Epstein’s private plane, reportedly nicknamed the “Lolita Express”. Clinton has denied any close relationship with Epstein, instead linking their contact to aid work in the developing world..........

Conspiracy theories aside, it is clear that Epstein had a wealth of politically powerful and influential friends that reached into every facet of Government.......

The most challenging struggle for the UK political establishment has been accepting the 2016 referendum result.
Understanding that the Maastricht Treaty spelled out a Federal Agenda without any mandate or the will from the then, peoples of twelve member states. This set in motion a political and economic Union without recourse to any true realisation of democratic accountability.
Read it !!!!! …......5. It was a giant leap forward for European integration........It does not take some right wing knuckle dragger to understand the implications to hold our political leadership to account !!! True socialists Tony Benn, Peter Shore, Barbara Castle understood this clearly
Five things you need to know about the Maastricht Treaty........
Is this retched propaganda about the UK faces food, fuel and drug shortages if it leaves EU, seriously valid?
When 550 countries outside of the European Union have little issue with food, fuel and drug shortages. The principal of PPP, perfect preparation and prevention, a clean break from every aspect of EU regulatory and the Common Agricultural Policy. Except change and move on.
Do you serious believe the people of US and Japan would politicly join such a Union ?!!!
Not on your the hair of your chinny chin chin.

If Fumio Miyazak is judged to be guilty of the assault, road rage, then Fumio Miyaza has to face the consequences, possible prison time, victim compensation, forfeiture of his driving licence.
Could it Fumio Miyazak is a repeat offender having profound anger management issues.
I find the head in hands cowardly.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in Government cannot be trusted to honour present Treaties or Agreements.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in cannot be relied upon to honour future so called talks .
President Moon Jae-in is a opportunist without the realisation of his own government political and economic failures.

Could this Pompeo moment, voiced to supposedly support Japan government to rail against South Korean reluctance to accept wartime labour issues, reaffirm, to become construed politically, as opportunism or the possibility to. or for a continued means to extract discriminatory levels of financial leverage from a believed completist Japanese Government or SK Government?

Smithjapan,well I hijacked that phase from a English from grandparents, the relevance is concerned with the economic inconsistency of the political position of both Governments.
I am of an age that has no historic baggage to drag around like a ball a chain. I also have no political affiliations.
I have met Takashi Kawamura (Mayor of Nagoya) also Aichi Goveror Hideaki Omura, business means one bumps into all walks of life. Do I share any political opinions or interests, common ground? The subject never came up.

Smithjapan, some members in Abe sans cabinet need to consider there positions in office, their revisionist views, to put it mildly receive a undue and unbalanced slice of media attention. This is a classic political half a dozen of one and six of the other.
What aggravates, 18 to 25 years old appear politically comatose

Smithinjapan, The present Government of Japan is not mandated to offer apologies on behalf of their peoples, some 83% of which were not even born at the time of these atrocities, and another 9% under the age of 10. Any attempt, as previous attempts are contrived and hollow. The very definition of a political beg-pardon.
The move forward must be from a more profound diplomatic route. A agreed Royal commission of independent historians and educators. It will not come from either Japan or South Korean present or future political leadership. President Moon Jae-in is inciting political discontent to shield his failure in Government.
Prime Minister Abe will probably face his own defining political and economic watershed in October.

This in no substitute for Leadership where government is concerned.
Any national politician that is mandated to a principal level to lead his cCountry as a head of Government defines a role that requires straightforward and forthright sincerity to accept previous administrations that rightly or wrongly made profound decisions that embellished economic and political principle that could or would be construed in today society as inequitable.
President Moon Jae-in is a shameful political fraud, weaponising past historic grievances, cynically wheeling out frail old pensioners, inflaming and aggregating student political activists, to circumvent his own political failures in office.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has backed his government into a political, and economical dead end.
It is remarkable that Moon Jae-in a human rights lawyer failed to understand the difference between diplomacy and the dogma of his own ideology.
President Moon Jae-in economic policies and jobs agenda is, personally an unequivocal failure.
President Moon Jae-in failed to understand fully the implications the SK Chaebol elite that provide between $95 billion alone to SK semi conductor market, and the enviable economic ramifications of an export embargo would mean.
President Moon Jae-in promised economic and social reforms, have hit small business owners putatively and rebounded on the most vulnerable workers in society.
President Moon Jae-in decision to remove Japan fast-track trade status, will ultimately depreciate SK most impoverished families income.
The political reasoning behind the present agenda to resort to a cynical form of historic retribution It is President Moon Jae-in failure of Leadership, polices, and the dishonesty of his Government that have created the diplomatic pessimism of the Japan government and people.

A prudent advisory precaution under the circumstances.
Emotions, politically are running high, student activist flag burning, and Thursday's national day of liberation from Japanese rule could become a focal point for further anti Japanese sentiment. Be safe not sorry.
