I hope the combini manager went ballistic at the dumb cop. I would.

GoTo was a classic example of the govt’s priorities. Economy before the welfare of the entire population of the country. Short sighted though, because the Go To Spread Virus Everywhere campaign will ensure the economy suffers due to the obviously subsequent increase in cases. Dumb dumb dumb people

Yeah, it does seem like a ploy to escape responsibility for its heinous activities.

Just stupid stupid stupid. So many Australians o’seas unable to get home and this is allowed to happen. So stupid.
Meanwhile, with the olympics looming, expect the same result multiplied by a hundred.

Australian deputy prime minister (Scott Morrison is away on holiday again), has expressed the same views. Stubbornly deflecting the howls of criticism from everyone except the Liberal party. Scoundrels all.

... meanwhile, Australians overseas trying to get home are stranded and bumped off flights. Great priorities Morrison.

Man up. Times are hard, but no point being anxious or blathering about the pain you’re feeling. Be strong for the people around you. This article is full of ditherers and moaners, they don’t help anyone,
Agree 100%. Cancel the damn olympics. Do what has worked in other countries (no, I don’t need to reminded that ‘we are Japanese’ and not like other countries). Stop moaning and worrying about money and the bubble you live in.

Just like their beloved leader, these people are anti-democracy traitors with absolutely zero respect for the seat of democracy, let alone the process.
What a total embarrassment Amerika has become.

Don’t rush these important decisions. Take your time. Set up another panel to discuss the main points on how to address the situation. No rush.
Meanwhile, cases in my town are exponentially rising. ʅ（◞‿◟）ʃ

Yuck. This creepy little lizard man, as @Puckey2 said, his wife was insulted and his father was accused of JFK assassination all by Dump, shows once again that he has absolutely no spine, not a shred of integrity. Classic Republican toad.

As long as so many governments are literally owned by fossil fuel industries around the world, they will always make these kind of decisions, always choose the bad (for the planet and future generations) option, always look at the short term (the next election, donations, etc). Sadly, Japan is no different.

why the hell do you need to know exactly what kind of tool he murdered his sister with??? What possible use would that information be to you?

Look out yanks, that’s socialism right there that they’re arguing about. Which socialism is better, the $600 socialism, or the $1200 socialism?

Being a nation that encourages, nay, expects conformity, will inevitably lead to copycat cases of suicide given the constant reporting of cases in the media. Stop this practice and cases will drop. It’s not brain science.

I’ve been asking for the last couple of months: ‘where’s Suga?!’ He’s literally been absent from his unfortunate role of leader thru this terrible situation. Any thoughts that his non-elite background would make him more in tune with the general population are dashed completely. Blaming the people indeed! What a hide this dinosaur has!

It’s a deeply patriarchal society, and it will take a lot more than govt setting goals to change that.

Posted in: If you are a foreign resident (either permanent, long term or short term) of Japan, do you currently feel safer living here amid the coronavirus, or would you prefer to be in some other country? See in context
I’d rather be in a country where the leadership is visible, proactive and onto the situation. Rather than the tepid requests coming for the ‘leadership’ here. The cases in my town are increasing daily due to a number of factors including complacency among the general populace and lack of strong leadership.

Abe, Modi and Morrison. Two right wing hawks and one accidental flake PM. Good example of ‘birds of a feather flock together’.

And Japan should compensate the country for the massive expense in containing and cleaning up the mess and loss of tourism revenue.
