The rumors about Russia invading Hokkaido are far fetched, but something we should all be keeping an eye on. Roll on regime change in Russia..

It will take a generation to forgive the Russian people for burying their heads in the sand while their soldiers rape and pillage their way through the Ukraine..

With these costs going up, it was hardly time to devalue the yen and play the abe/kishida-Nomics card, printing money only makes costs higher and we all know companies do not increase wages for low paid workers-he’s making life more difficult for those who need the most help..

Completely agree that families of Permanent residents should be given special dispensation to come into the country. My mum has been waiting to see her grandchild for two years, surely family is more important than getting students over?

If the cost of living is going up, why is Kishida going to make them go up further with his stimulus package? Abenomics only benefits rich people…

Absolute legend, gutted to hear he’s calling it a day, twelve monkeys, pulp fiction, die hard, 5th element what a canon and legacy he leaves behind..

¥5000 to pensioners? Is it 1970? A six pack of asahi costs ¥1200! Kishida really lives in a dreamworld..

Just 3000 troops drilling on the Northern territories. The JSDF could easily overwhelm the Russians and retake the islands. It’s now or never. What are they waiting for?
its called an act of war mate, not advisable considering putin is like an angry guy in the bar looking to fight anyone.,

Why not spend the £42 billion on helping low paid workers and families instead of non tax payers in another country who in the main couldn’t care less what happens in Japan?

This is where the world gets china wrong, they’re only nice when they need something, as soon as they don’t need Japan it will be after territory and complaining about the war again..

Until you support families more and make it financially affordable to have children the date will continue to go down. Only wealthy people can afford to have more than two kids in Tokyo.

It’s quite easy to say that from a comfy palace and having servants. How about encouraging tax rebates and wage increases for those on low incomes?

It originated in china=china virus. It’s killed millions, an apology and financial compensation to those that suffered and lost income would be nice, but China don’t work like that. Instead we all have to try our best not to offend a nation sterilising its own people, and threatening all the nations in this region. The world is sleepwalking to a Ukraine type situation in Taiwan..

some experts are concerned that such a system may hinder the rehabilitation of those who have served their sentences.
the most important thing is to protect the children, not convicted sex offenders. This law can’t come in soon enough..

More direct hire and pay rises for ALTs and NTs at schools would be much appreciated too Mr Kishida-the more you pay us the more tax you’ll get, the more we’ll spend. It’s better to do that than aimlessly printing money and buying bonds..

There wouldn’t need to be a winter break if the needless competitions like the uefa conference league and the League of Nations were cut and teams like San Marino and Andorra had to play pre qualifying tournaments to limit the one sided games. The Premier League is overly interrupted by these worthless games. I’d be more interested in watching San Marino play the us ladies team than England, least it would be close..

I defy anyone to watch her bbc documentary and not support her claims. She’s fighting for a better, safer world for all girls/women in japan and she should be commended and supported by all. Gambate Ito san..

It’s ok, the ioc chose them to hold the Winter Olympics so they must be a friendly country not forcibly sterilising their own people or creating global pandemics killing millions. When will China be held accountable for covid 19(the China virus)?

Once again the world tolerates and dances around China, instead of addressing the fact they caused a global pandemic which has killed millions and they have not yet been held accountable for.

He has the largest mandate from the British electorate in history, he is the British Prime Minister, he has the right to stay in the job until voted out by the Conservative party or by the British public. He should not resign over drinking at a party, however much the left wing media want him too..

All the main beers here have a distinct taste, kirin, sapporo and asahi and ebisu are the best tasting beers imo. If you want to offer a new asahi recipe why not just launch a new beer brand?

Though I don’t agree with boris’ policy to expats and taxation, if he has any sense he will tune out the noise and ride out the storm-the left wing media know this is their big chance to oust him and are going in all guns blazing.
