Posted in: Abe says Japan at crucial stage for lifting of state of emergency See in context

I cannot blame the commuters or shoppers in this country for not grasping just how serious this situation is. The example given to them by their so called J Gov is pathetic/irresponsible.

I once watched a lady in Sapporo waiting for traffic lights to change. The small side road she wanted to cross was closed to traffic because of road works, but still she waited for the green light !

So Abe san pay their wages to stay at home for a month or two

@Burning Bush - boss was’ enforcing social distancing’

harrassment victimization bullying - simple

so pack commuters into trains like human sardines, but then enforce social distancing in the office - ok I’m convinced

Clearly Abe is not a leader - he is a liability. 46.6 billion yen, he is treating his countrymen and women with contempt.

@mu-da I agree, perhaps even change places with his dog

@Akie. Everything is under control - yes you are correct. Big business is staying open, still getting tax perks at expense of others. And J gov will secure votes for next election.

@Burning Bush school children are safe from virus but what about their grandparents ?

This is a horse race to beat the virus. All countries taking part.

why is the Japanese horse wearing blinkers ?

@Burning Bush I wanted to laugh at your comment ‘how can you justify..’

but it is too serious. So you believe it is safe on morning commuter trains but too dangerous at evening pubs and clubs. In football terms Japan is scoring an own goal

Abe’s fiscal experiment ! As always the comments are far more interesting, informative and honest compared to the articles and the subjects. Thank you, now I understand this economy is built on egg shells

So discussions between Tokyo and Abe J gov reveal J gov wanted to wait 2 weeks before making a decision about - asking businesses to close. FFS what a sorry sad state of an excuse for a gov

Abe is cautious ! This country deserves a leader not a fence sitter. An old British Army expression - you sir are a waste of rations!

@Burning Bush I am sure you are correct with your statistics. And I believe Koike and Abe san are both selfless people doing their best for the Japanese population.

Ok so I’m a PR in Japan. I am told my favorite Aunt died 2 days ago because of this virus. She had no bedside visitors allowed and will have no mourners.

this is the 21st century - how is it possible for educated people to be so stupid Abe San ?

A task force, what a brilliant idea, and perfectly logical to wait all these weeks before setting it up. Silent obedience is not always the solution

To believe the virus has already peaked in Japan is foolhardy. And even if it has, it just takes one tourist from Europe to kick it off again.

Shinzo Abe alias Mondai San. alias the invisible man. His only real talent is in delegating responsibility downwards. But sorry to say Japanese voters are stuck with, until they stop voting for him and his bunch of couch potatoes.
