I'm surprised it lasted so long. It should have been boycotted the day Russia invaded Ukraine!

I cannot imagine the old fossils in government going along with the idea, even if 90% of those questioned do.

Posted in: Kishida sends offering to Yasukuni Shrine for spring rite See in context

I consider it a homage to visit the graves of those who fell in the war, however the following is an extract from Google, which is why it should not be visited by government ministers:-

The shrine is now the memorial site for over 2.5 million people who have died in conflict, mainly in World War II. The inclusion of 14 convicted Class-A war criminals in the shrine has resulted in controversy, particularly after the visits of Japanese prime ministers.

Posted in: Biden, Kishida try to solidify bilateral ties even if both fail to hold onto power See in context

I think Americans would rather vote for someone who is a bit forgetful than a convicted sexual abuser who also illegally tried to cover up his encounter with Stormy Daniels. One could also add fomenting the J6 insurrection in Washington.

Posted in: China's Xi welcomes summit with Japan, S Korea at proper time: report See in context

I cannot see any point in holding trilateral talks with this evil country that doesn't respect human rights, wants to take over the Asia Pacific, and aids Russia.

Whatever is agreed to at any meeting they wouldn't follow afterwards.

Burning Bush

Zoom and Tik Tok are Chinese apps, so there is no security at all. WhatsApp is perhaps the safest as it is encrypted.

The Ginger Whinger is full of the proverbial, he's almost as bad as Moaning Meghan.

Posted in: Japan's LNG stockpile surges in Ukraine war-induced energy crisis See in context

Japan should totally boycott Russia, Japan should divest itself of any investments in the Sakhalin joint venture and buy its 9% of LNG on the open market like the other G7 members.

Haven't these trainees heard of contraceptives?

Posted in: Russia deploys defense missile system on Kuril island near Japan See in context

Japan should not have entered into a joint partnership with the Russians on the LNG project. The Russians cannot be trusted e.g. Ukraine, they were supposed to be defending them a per the Baltic Agreement for giving up its nuclear weapons.

Any statistics issued over Golden Week are pretty meaningless except perhaps the critically iii and deaths. Let's see what they are in 10 days time.

Posted in: Japan condemns reported Russian attacks on civilians in Ukraine See in context

Japan should totally boycott Russia, I guess I will get lots of down-votes, even other sensible comments are down-voted, the Japan today must be read by Russian supporters!

Posted in: Ukraine accuses Russia of massacre; city strewn with bodies See in context

Now is the time for Japan to stop being mealy mouthed and stop all trade with Russia, especially when you see the photo evidence of war crimes being committed by them.

Japan should cancel the joint venture of the Sakhalin lng plant. UK Shell canceled their 25% investment, Japan has just 11%. Time for action, not talking, having meetings, thinking about it, the usual stalling techniques Japan uses.

The article regarding Uniqlo has been withdrawn. Uniqlo continues to keep its outlets in Russia open. I will not buy any clothing from them in the future.

Posted in: Uniqlo defends decision to stay open in Russia See in context

I am totally horrified at Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and have decided to immediately boycott Uniqlo for deciding to continue keeping their outlets in Russia open. I guess they want to take finacial advantage as most clothes outlets from the West have already closed theirs in Russia.

Posted in: Panel says 35 people should be charged over vote-buying in 2019 See in context

One question still be asked, who initially provided the cash that was given to 35 people? Was it from the LDP, and was it originally public money?

Yes it is good news, i hope they are bankrupted, which causes a chain reaction in the Chinese construction industry. Hope another nail in the evel regime of the CCP.

Just as a rider. Don't buy Chinese products if possible, and don't watch the Beijing Winter Olympics.

A diplomatic boycott is nothing more than than a gesture, total total boycott diplomatically and the withdrawal of all athlas a protest at China's human rights, territorial encroachment.

Let's not forgot the deliberate spread of Covid-19 on the world resulting in over 5,000,000 deaths, and still counting.

Posted in: Lineup for end-of-year Kohaku song contest 2021 revealed See in context

My wife, who is a local thinks that the NHK end of year musical is a dirge, not watched by the young, only by a few old fxxts.

Surely NHK could think of something more appropriate and entertaining for the year end to suit all tastes!

Increasing the minimum wage would be the simplest solution, with no bureaucracy involved, and would ensure that all employees would get an increase.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 5,773 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 20,293 See in context

I am so pleased that both my wife and self had two vaccinations each of the Pfizer vaccine, but feel so concerned that want to urgently get their jabs. The silence from our dear leaders is very worrying as they have no real practical solutions to effectively combat this pandemic. They've had 18 months to formulate a what if worst case situation.......what has been planned? Nada, zilch, nothing. All we get is talking heads.
