This is why people should be very sceptical when their governments claim they can't afford to put more into pensions or health.

Besides, India has its own space program and nukes so they can easily deal with their own problems.

These are very worrying times.

Even the best case scenario looks bleak.

If the Lib Dems want continued support they'll have to choose someone fairly charismatic like Ishiba. Don't know much about Suga, but can you see him dealing with the likes of Trump, Xi and Putin?

I applaud your sense of humour.

Jokes aside, we need someone who'll listen to the public instead of what Abe's been doing...

Posted in: Japan, Britain to wrap up trade talks soon; cheese last remaining key issue See in context

Those who keep playing down Britain's strengths seem to forget that each country has something of worth. In the UK's case, pharmaceuticals, food, financial services...

And in Japan's, technology in particular.

Why so much pessimism?

Posted in: Rule, Britannia! BBC ditches singalong lyrics amid colonial rethink See in context

Whether this article is accurate or not is irrelevant.

And anyone who claims that those songs are somehow racist just proves how little they understand British culture, which often mocks itself.

One of the points of the proms is to enjoy it. People from all over the world attend and wave their own flags.

If the woke and other pathetic losers can't stand people enjoying themselves, no one is forcing them to watch.

Posted in: #MeToo movement journalist sues lawmaker for liking defaming tweets See in context

Regardless of what happened to Ito, suing someone for expressing an opinion, however despicable it might be, goes against free speech.

This is not a wise move on Ito's part. It'll probably backfire and make her look like an sjw.

If she goes after Sugita just for liking a tweet, then she'll have to sue everyone who liked that tweet. And if she doesn't, Sugita's the one who'll look like the victim in this...

Posted in: China's fishing suspension near disputed islands in East China Sea ends See in context

Some foreign affairs experts, however, said tensions are unlikely to intensify in the waters this year, given that Chinese local authorities have instructed fishermen not to sail within 30 nautical miles, or 56 kilometres, of the uninhabited islets.

How utterly naïve these so-called experts are. Since when does China respect its own rules?

Tokyo has asked Beijing to implement steps to prevent Chinese fishing boats from entering the Japanese territorial waters through a diplomatic channel, sources close to bilateral relations said.

The government never learns does it? The only thing bullies respond to is force. Send in the navy.

Showing weakness will just encourage the CCP even more.

Posted in: Central Japan residents to seek injunction to stop maglev train work See in context

For god's sake, this water business is obviously just a red herring.

For the moment, the quickest and main way of getting from Tokyo to Nagoya is through Shizuoka.

The proposed line is passing through all the prefectures in between Tokyo and Aichi, but get this, there would be a stop in everyone of those prefectures except for Shizuoka.

So. Not only is Shizuoka gonna potentially lose business by having its usual traffic diverted, to add insult to injury, it'll have to let its competition through its backyard...

Posted in: Fears pandemic will worsen birth rate, exacerbating Japan's aging crisis See in context

And this "grass is greener on the other side" is all too typical. Other countries have other serious problems, not just Japan.

Yes, Japan's population is shrinking. It'll force the government to either relax immigration rules, wether it'll be good for Japan or not is another matter, or become less wasteful with tax money.

The health service also needs to change. Making people cough up for an exam isn't exactly helping, especially at this time...

I hear lots of people saying that immigration needs to increase, but be careful with that because it's a temporary solution.

And btw, they can't put every one suspected of stalking or other mental illnesses under surveillance, they just don't have the resources for that.

I agree that they should've at least had a chat with him to judge his mental state.
