The Takashimaya Christmas cake debacle. This was also international news. The BBC reported on it.

Wise words from JC: "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

I am shocked -- how could this happen in a country where the politicians are so diligent and honest?

Kishida reminds me of the Action Man Talking Commander I got for Christmas when I was seven years old.

When I pulled a cord from his chest I could hear these phrases -- I quickly got bored with it:

"This is your Commander speaking"

"Enemy aircraft - action stations"

"Volunteer needed for a special mission"

"Enemy in sight: Range 1000"

"Patrol fall in!"

"Hold your fire until I give the order"

"Mortar attack - dig in"

"Commander to base: Request support fire"

A Kishida doll would say things like: "I will restore public trust" and "I will take steps to prevent a recurrence".

Also the Hanno police have a lot of blame! I don’t know what job they get paid for coz it’s not protecting people. 

The police (and politicians) in Japan are basically useless.

Why isn't this story in the CRIME section? You should combine them: CRIME/POLITICS.

I would have voted for the kanji for "useless" to describe Kishida and the other LDP muppets who are destroying Japan.

Japan's decline into a heavily indebted theme park for foreign tourists makes me sad. Kishida and the other incompetent LDP politicians should be prosecuted for what they have done to this once great nation. Only a tiny elite can afford to travel abroad now to see how living standards are much higher in other developed countries.

Japan is rapidly turning into a third-world country thanks to this bunch of clowns. The decline of all aspects of society is becoming increasingly obvious and harder to cover up. But at least the trains still run on time!

Not a good look when pensioners are practically starving in this country.

Posted in: Kishida to deliver policy speech as gov't maps out new economic stimulus package See in context

Kishida-kun is desperate to win the next election. It's not that difficult. Forget the patronizing handouts. Japan doesn't need communism -- the majority of people in this country are willing to work for a living (unlike their lazy Western counterparts). Boost the minimum wage to 2,000 yen an hour (more in Tokyo and other major cities) and eliminate taxes for people who don't make that much money. Large companies can shoulder more of the tax burden -- they can afford it.
