Actually the next best thing is to send in the dad-army of untrained cannon fodder.

Those being called up are reservists. They are experienced professional military men. As reservists they are getting paid a monthly payment. They attend training either monthly or three monthly. It is the Ukrainians who have banned men from leaving the country, although many have. They are your Cannon fodder.

Many, possibly most of the reservists called up at this time will not be going to Ukraine. They will be replacing regular troops of the Russian army serving in Russia itself. It will be these full timers going to battle.

Posted in: Japan to compile stricter rules on school bus safety after child's death See in context

I can save them the millions they are going to waste on their research into stricter rules. I have devised a simple yet cunning plan. Step one I call "counting", where the driver or helper count the children getting on the bus and then off the bus. If these numbers do not match, this could indicate a problem. Step two I call "checking". This is where the driver walks to the back of the bus and checks that no children are left on the bus.

Maybe they should try to find out why such simple steps were not being taken in the first place.

Don't forget it was the same poor people who went to the polling station to vote in the Tory party. They are getting exactly what the voted for and deserve. I have sympathy for those who didn't vote conservative but those that did..... too bad.

The "invasion" did not trigger any cost of living crisis in the UK. The failed sanctions pushed up energy costs for all Europeans especially the UK.

Of course the "referendum" is a farce during conflict.... But that is not important as the west would not recognize the result anyway. The majority of the population in those areas are pro Russian, a fact that is difficult for the west to deal with.

Yes they failed to do their job. Yes they made mistakes but they didn't intend to harm anyone. Sticking them in prison for years isn't going to bring anyone back or prevent it happening again. The nursery is now closed, the two defendants will have to live with what they did.

However, I can understand the parents wanting the harshest punishment. Sadly I don't think it will help them.

Oh and the irony that the agency that won the bid to organise this SF is the same lot that organised the scandal sakura viewing event! Amazing!

Won the bid?

There was no tender, no bidding. They were awarded the contract with no questions asked!

That is amazing! Or rather an amazing scam!

"Having policies that, for example, shape the pricing of food -- so the foods which are contributing most to obesity, such as drinks or foods high in fat and sugars need to be priced higher," he said.

What a foolish idea, make cake more expensive so the obese will buy less expensive apples....

Not going to happen, they will still buy the foods they have been brought up on. A better solution would be a penalty tax linked to their obesity. Make them pay for obesity linked healthcare, charge them extra to use the bus to encourage them to walk..etc

North Korea could conduct more tests in coming days as it views U.S.-South Korean military exercises as practice for an invasion and often reacts with displays of weapons designed to attack its rivals.

US and South Korean exercises are a threat to North Korea. What do you expect them to do?

What would the US do if NK ships were having exercise off Florida?

Why do we keep promoting this barbaric, deadly sport.

In terms of serious injury and death boxing is less dangerous than skiing, car racing, motorcycling, rugby, rodeo, parachuting, climbing, big wave surfing, base jumping, wing suit flying, downhill MTB, free diving, white water rafting, cave diving and American football.

So ban them all?

Controversy? There is no controversy. Abe was a corrupt politician with numerous documented scandals. The LDP want to use his funeral as a party political tool. The majority of the population are against it.

I won't be shedding any tears. Showing respect is all very good for his private family funeral but this is on the public purse so we all have a right to our view on this.
