Introduce a benefit system like the UK if you want your population to grow. You'll soon have millions of single mums.

Not a fan of superhero movies. Is there popularity something to do with Christianity, also popular in the US?

She's so privileged, yet she can't bare to live. It's not enough to be so pretty.

The world is crazy.

Japan did pretty well during the Korean war. Got a nice boost to manufacturing making tanks destined for Korea. It was good luck.

Won't do much to protect people from earthquakes or tsunamis, and they will definitely happen at some point.

I think you're right @paul

Back hand deal to defence contractors?

Japan should prepare for natural disasters and sort out population decline. Too difficult?

I think Japan is probably more under threat from natural disasters than a foreign foe.

Best thing to do is have a homogeneous society.

Posted in: Jolie seeks removal of private judge in Pitt divorce case See in context

Who in their right mind would marry her? It's obviously not going to last and when it ends that's the last person you'd want to be fighting in court.

Does marriage boost their careers or something?

What's the need to drop atomic bombs on habitated areas? Why not drop them on uninhabited places as a warning? What happened was cruel beyond belief and prejudiced in my opinion.

The good thing is that no country has a monopoly when it comes to nukes.

Posted in: Nissan rolls out new electric crossover to boost image See in context

It looks nice but it needs to be priced right. I think if it's around £30,000 then it will sell in the UK, because a Tesla is more like £40-50,000.
