@tokyo joe

You are so correct. In addition, he has the right to free speech as guaranteed in the Japanese constitution. If he expresses his views and is then elected, he has the support of his constituents. Whether people like it or not is not of his concern. If people don't like it, then become Japanese, acquire the right to vote and then vote for someone who expresses your concerns. If you don't want to do that, well, there are still planes leaving Japan. No one is forcing you to stay.

She knew what she was doing. She deserves to swing from the gallows. Do some states still use old sparky? That would be perfect for her.

Posted in: Osaka’s remote-learning policy strains teachers; forces students to go to school for lunch See in context

I don't totally blame the schools for this...this is where the PTA should get involved. I have a son who is at public elementary school and the PTA is an absolute joke. In the above case, surely it wouldn't be that difficult for the PTA to get involved and to arrange lunch deliveries to the neediest of students? Sounds like a daunting task but that's what a PTA is for...to work towards the students well being.

Posted in: UK health service under pressure despite pandemic promises See in context

Both my parents required operations which, if they were Japanese and lived in Japan, would have been done without too much delay or fuss. They both waited ridiculously long times to have treatment. One of my mother's friends, a young woman, had cervical cancer and even after being admitted to hospital for the operation was sent home twice. Once as an anaesthesiologist wasn't available and another time due to a lack of beds. I am a Tory at heart but the total lack of investment and actually reduction of budgets for the NHS is absolutely unacceptable.

Because Japan is a misogynistic country that allows men to get off lightly when they commit rape and domestic violence.

Got any data to back that up ??? Probably not. Bit a pathetic sweeping statement, wouldn't you say???

So, if women cheat on their partners it's seen as movement forward for women whereas if men do it, they are seen as scum bags? Cherry picking at it's worst.

Posted in: Who fired rockets against ordinary citizens first? Our hearts are with Israel. See in context

I was born and raised in stamford hill, north London. Born in a Jewish hospital because the local NHS maternity ward was full. Grew up with orthodox Jewish people all around me. I come from an Irish Catholic family. Never once was I singled out , bullied or harassed for being a Catholic. ISIS, Al Qaeda or any of the other Arabic terrorist organizations responsible for some of the worst terrorist attrocities in recent years have, without a doubt, not a single member of the Jewish faith. I totally agree with Nakayama and the above posters, if they are in fact able to read anything more than the diatribe printed in the left wing toilet paper they call new sources and read the very interesting opinion article in today's new York times, a very left of center paper, they would see that most of the civilized world stands behind Israel and not their childish ' Palestinians are freedom fighters' rhetoric.

Posted in: In the shadow of COVID-19, a toll on entertainment workers See in context

@goodlucktoyou

Art has no intrinsic value per se and is a luxury for a society not in the grip of it's biggest challenge since world war 2. It's called pragmatism. Let's see how though 'positive attitudes' you so value actually contribute to the eradication of this particular corona virus. So you would prefer an artist to visit you at home if you had severe symptoms and not a doctor? Money used for art at such a time is a total waste of money that could be used to pay better salaries for front line medical staff? Or maybe we could send them some 'positive attitudes'??

Well, good luck with doing something with arsenal. In that I mean spotify is no longer the leader in streaming and rivals such as youtube music and amazon music offer more for less cash. spotify hasn't really improved that much in the last few years ....take such an approach with a premier league team and they'll be playing Hertford Town f.c , Bishop's stortford f.c. and the like in a few years.

After all, what is a boardroom but a place where power players read each other and make high-stakes decisions with the best available information at the time?

Well, the writer obviously had absolutely no experience of being in a boardroom . Appalling journalism. A boardroom works towards the overall betterment of the organization. It isn't every member for themselves. JT scraping the bottom of the news pool barrel again.

Osaka governor yoshimura is a complete tool. He pestered the central government to lift the last state of emergency in late February , knowing full well the cherry blossom-goodbye-welcome parties were just waiting to happen. He couldn't manage to fall into a river whilst blinding drunk tiptoeing along a precipice at night, let along manage a city

This virus originated in china and they did very little to stop it's international spread ( the whole wuhan pock down was done only to reduce economic damage internally ) so as some commentators have said, why not ask china to pay? Ahhh...because organisations such as the who receive huge bucks from the commies in china and you wouldn't want to bite the hand that feeds you, would you?

Maybe after you grow up you'll be able to contribute something worthwhile to a thread instead of leaving infantile comments. I don't have a tattoo and don't want one but some people may not be 100% sure so this is a great solution. As they say ' haters gonna hate.'
