Posted in: New Zealand plans armed police patrols after Christchurch massacre See in context

Will this really help combat the lunatics? The police in the US are armed to the teeth but that doesn't prevent their weekly mass shootings.

He's lucky he didn't get run over. If I was driving and a lunatic like him started attacking the car I might well accelerate to get away.

It's rubbish...!!.....tell me how World Cup Soccer 2022 in Qatar had selected? There is more than 50℃at day time.

Qatar won by paying massive bribes, obviously. Also, the 2022 World Cup is being moved to winter as they eventually realised the summer heat would be too much.

Posted in: Abe visits typhoon-hit areas; emperor's parade to be postponed until Nov 10 See in context

I don't understand how postponing the parade will help those whose homes have been destroyed or damaged. However, they do forecast rain for next Tuesday so that probably has something to do with it.

I'm wondering why the emperor hasn't been out visiting people in shelters yet? Too busy practicing sitting on a throne?

Posted in: Brexit deal at hand in Brussels, Johnson struggles to win support at home See in context

Pro-Brexit lawmakers from Johnson's governing Conservative Party say they will only back a deal if it has gained the support of the DUP,

Any conservatives that do not vote for the deal will be expelled from the party, just like the last lot of "rebels". At least, that's what Johnson said.

Posted in: Constitutionality of July election questioned over vote-value disparity See in context

In the July election, Miyagi Prefecture had the largest number of voters per candidate, while Fukui Prefecture had the least.

It's no coincidence that Miyagi often has strong support for non-LDP candidates.

Posted in: IOC wants to move Tokyo Olympic marathons, walking races to Sapporo See in context

It's only the marathon and walking events they are considering moving. The other athletic events will take place outside or in an uncovered stadium where it will still be too hot. The Doha stadium was covered and air conditioned, but Tokyo changed the original stadium design and removed the roof to save money. Result: dangerous levels of heat for athletes and spectators.

Posted in: Nissan to start building new Juke car at UK plant as Brexit looms See in context

The liberals hate success. Too afraid to admit Brexit doesn't mean disaster for Britain! Zealots!

If leaving the EU results in tariffs being applied to UK car exports to the EU I can guarantee that all volume car production in the UK will cease within a few years. The UK will be in the same position as Australia: a market too small to support in-country producers and left with no option but to import nearly all vehicles.

rlaalswls: The 1965 treaty between Japan and Korea states that disputes should be settled through arbitration. Japan has asked for this, but Korea has refused. In doing so Korea has violated the treaty.

Posted in: Naomi Osaka picks Japanese citizenship with eye on Olympics: NHK See in context

There is some confusion about what Japanese law actually says. The article is also wrong when it states:

Osaka, who has a Japanese mother and a Haitian father, told NHK she has completed an administrative step to obtain Japanese citizenship ahead of her birthday next week.

Osaka has had Japanese nationality since birth and therefore does not need to take any "administrative steps" to obtain it.

Japanese law stipulates that a Japanese with more than one nationality must chose one before turning 22 years old.

It is said that the choice should be made before you reach 22, but in fact the authorities are obliged to accept the declaration of nationality whenever it is submitted.

Furthermore, if a person chooses to keep their Japanese nationality that is the end of the matter. They can keep any other nationalities they may have and there is nothing the Japanese authorities can do about it. Loss of Japanese nationality is not possible under the law. Note that this only applies to people who have been Japanese since birth. The law is quite different for a person who becomes Japanese through naturalisation.

This is all explained in detail here: http://www.yoshabunko.com/nationality/Dual_nationality.html

Posted in: World Rugby slams Scotland legal threat over typhoon-hit game See in context

The planning should have allowed for games to be postponed a day or two, long enough for a typhoon to pass. I was reading this morning that their contingency planning is to move games from Yokohama to Tokyo, completely useless in the face of a typhoon.

Posted in: U.S. deploys troops to Saudi Arabia over Iran threat See in context

Saudi Arabians were responsible for 9/11; the Saudi government teaches their children that we should be killed, yet Trump sends US troops there.

The Kurds helped fight against Saudi-sponsored IS terrorists, so Trump abandons them to be killed by the Turks (who also supported IS).

It's pretty clear that Trump is on the side of countries that support IS. It's a disgrace.

Posted in: Turkey presses Syrian assault as thousands flee the fighting See in context

When Russia invaded Crimea and Ukraine heavy sanctions were imposed by western countries. Now that Turkey is invading Syria will we see a similar response, or will double standards prevail?

I hope the Turks suffer heavy casualties as a result of their invasion / attempted genocide.

In the end, after many years of appeals, he might win a derisory sum in damages. Japanese courts always protect Japanese companies, no matter what the law says.

Posted in: Aichi exhibition closed over Korean 'comfort woman' statue reopens See in context

hachikou: The exhibition is about freedom of expression. You may not like the contents, but it's important that they can be displayed without giving in to threats from fascists.

As for the use of taxes: there are plenty of things I don't like my taxes being spent on (e.g. "commercial" whaling). Perhaps you should vote for a party that will spend taxes in the way you want?

Posted in: Japanese whalers complete first commercial hunt in 31 years See in context

His ministry is requesting a 5.1 billion yen ($48 million) budget for fiscal 2020 to support commercial whaling.

It should be called "taxpayer-funded whaling" as it certainly isn't commercial.

I'm waiting for the results of the heavy metal and toxin tests they will carry out on the whale meat to show it is safe for human consumption. I expect the test results will be falsified, if they are conducted at all.

Posted in: British PM Johnson's own brother quits on eve of Brexit election campaign See in context

Now Lying Johnson says he would rather die in a ditch than obey the law and ask for an extension to the EU departure date. Perhaps he can find a ditch on the site of Heathrow's third runway and kill two birds with one stone.

If you haven't seen it, have a look at Kenneth Clarke calmly and methodically taking down Johnson in Parliament the other day (from 8:33:30)


Even Corbyn looks good when compared to Johnson, who comes across as an unhinged, ranting buffoon.

Posted in: Johnson's Brexit plans in crisis after 3rd defeat in 2 days See in context

Did anyone notice how Lying Johnson, when criticising Corbyn, said that remaining in the EU after 31st October would cost the UK 1 billion pounds a month? That's substantially less than the 350 million a week figure Lying Johnson had on his campaign bus. The true figure is less than 1 billion a month.
