Posted in: 17 delicatessens in eastern Japan closed down over E. coli poisoning See in context

Norovirus is particularly nasty as normal detergent and water won't get rid of it. You have to deep clean/bleach areas that have it, and infected people must be isolated.

Self service and uncovered food is an obvious health and safety issue - why is it allowed? Why do people buy stuff from these counters? Disgusting.

No way. Hitting your children is abuse.

Not good enough. She refers to the Rohingya's as 'Bengalis'.

Such a financial burden could have an effect on future programming.

You mean it might get better? It can't get any worse.

She is a horrible woman. The interview and press conference she gave was laughable, talking in a higher pitched voice and crying. She is not fit for office.

If Kim Jong Un wanted to do real harm, he should launch the rockets during evening's "gourmet" shows. This would be real terrorism for a lot of people here.

Ha, ha. Japanese TV is mostly brain dead but people lap it up. It's bizarre.

Posted in: Kindergartens to accept 2-year-olds to address day care shortage See in context

Do these day care centres have the space and, more importantly, the extra staff to care for these two year olds? I thought one of the reasons why here was a shortage of places was that the buildings weren't suitable and due to a chronic shortage of suitably qualified staff. Abe must have used magic to make this happen.

Nobody seems willing or able to single out who or what is being preachy and "PC".

As a Briton I always see PC as Police Constable.

Why does it have a camera. Totally uncessary and I would be weary to bring yet another camera into my home. I cover up the camera on my laptop as it is.

Yes, Sadiq Khan has his priorities in order.

This has nothing to do with the Mayor. He has no say in how the police and security services act. I didn't see you blaming the Manchester Mayor for the concert bombing.

Posted in: Apple crumble an ideal way to capture rich pie taste See in context

No cooking apples in Japan, just watery, sweet mushy ones. Never add sugar to the apples, just put brown sugar in the crumble mix.

I feel sorry for the poor foster parents, an elderly, respectable couple who have fostered nearly 300 children and received an honour from the Queen for their good work. To have their home, life and reputation tarnished by this scumbag is heartbreaking.

Posted in: Take cover - but where? Japanese helpless over N Korean threat See in context

Makes the alerts pointless, just scaring the populace. Even in a concrete building or basement if it's a direct ht you are dead, if it's nuclear we're all dead. Fatboy loves all this panic and fear, it's what he wants. Why feed him?

I prefer the Mayor telling Londoners to be calm and vigilant than the alternative. I notice Foreign Secretary and former London Mayor Boris Johnson saying exactly the same thing yesterday, but no one criticising him for saying it. Hmmm, I wonder why?

The Met Police have confirmed it's a terrorist incident. The injured have burns, others were injured in the crush to get out of the train and the station.

Posted in: U.N. seeks massive help for Rohingya fleeing Myanmar 'ethnic cleansing' See in context

Rohingya are denied Myanmar citizenship as they are Muslim, they are discriminated against in Myanmar because they are Muslim, Myanmar is ethnically cleaning Muslims in Rakhine. Despite all this people are excusing the actions of the Myanmar government and blaming the victims.

Those poor self identified Rohingya may not be eligible, but they can go to the European Court of Human Right and argue as their parents are subject of former the British colony and they must entitle to British citizen by descent. Why not try? There are many Pro Bono human rights activist lawyers in Europe.

For fear of repeating myself, there is so much wrong here I don't know where to start. A quick internet search on UK citizenship will stop you from embarrassing yourself from posting wrong info.
