What Ahiruneko and Kate fail to mention is that the product is to be found in the chilled food cabinet.

Reheating fried food is definitely not the best and

300 more yen and I can find a cheap hot lunch set.

Wearing a mask should be up to the individual.

Posted in: Ex-UK leader Truss to urge tougher China stance in Tokyo meeting See in context

100% China (CCP) is a danger and countries around the world have to share info on China’s tactics.

Why invest in a Chinese totalitarian state when that investment could be made at home?

Any EU delegation should not need to visit China

In defense of Liz Truss…

In the UK Liz Truss had a plan for growth.

Cut taxes and invest more.

What was wrong with that?

Under Sunak how are things?

The UK is wallowing at the bottom of the G7 heap and prices are still rising.

Striking public workers all over the place


Because they can’t afford to live

Her plan was to increase oil supply in the North Sea and invest more in renewable and alternative energy

Theres plenty of room for growth in the UK;it should be happening!

Posted in: Electric car sales gain pace despite hurdles See in context

Chinese manufacturers like BYD or rival carmaker NIO are "the most competitive in the world, work harder and smarter", Musk said himself in January.

With no trade unions nor freedom of speech;dissent is easily quelled by the CCP.

The Chinese can outproduce and undercut others,countries and foreign producers with a view to dominating the market.

Buy Chinese at your peril..

Aftermarket customer service is not a concept easily found in China

Posted in: Electric car sales gain pace despite hurdles See in context

China is a leader in the electrification of cars, with favourable policies helping sales to double in 2022.

All is state owned in China by the CCP and funded by them-be happy to know that there are components in Chinese cars made by slave labor.

"I am clear that our children's education is precious and they deserve to be in school today being taught," he said.

As Rishi has opted out of sending his children to state school schools then he has got his wish.

Like most Tories Rishi Sunak is happy to see the

state system in the UK underfunded and crumbling, teachers unable to receive a proper wage whilst paying around 90,000 UK pounds to a private school for his two daughters.

When he talks about “our children’s (sic) education” he isn’t involved…

If only there wasn't so much historical baggage between the two nations, the most logical strategic partner for Japan would be South Korea.

Kishida has been trying to provide an opportunity for Shotaro to eventually become his successor by exposing him to different scenes of the political arena, a source close to the premier said.

Shopping in high end establishments is certainly an opportunity to lead to Shotaro becoming a high end politician.

All Shotaro needs to do now is to memorise the menu of a Kobe beef restaurant and he’ll be set!

@Elvis is here

It is also very ‘common’ for burial chambers to be opened too.

This is the 21st century not the 18th where we have have robots and camera miniaturization so that tomb interiors can be viewed in detail.

Also, there is Ground-penetrating radar which can give a detailed image of areas to be excavated so that damage can be limited.

There aren’t many excuses not to investigate….

There is a case for animal testing in some cases.

Still, bad as it is there are sometimes

no alternatives.


I wonder why there is such a plethora of wild animals in Japanese pet shops?

Monkeys,Fennic foxes and Meercats are just some of the animals that just shouldn’t be here!

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

> Russia is going to be too busy trying to keep it's people from starving to death after being cut off from humanity to be able to help China with anything. Basically North Korea part two.

Not a valid comparison in the slightest.

Russia is many times the size of NK.

I don’t notice many emaciated Russians on my trips to SE Asia nor do I see any North Koreans.

Note that Russia is in the midst of fighting a war right now

Oil and gas and the infrastructure to move those precious resources ensure that Russians are doing better than most and will do better i the future
