What exactly is the law that has been broken? There is nothing new about the arrangements (sex for money). Are we in an age of "New Prudishness and Wowserism"

The more complicated the case the longer it may take to gather all the evidence. He could spend quite a while on remand especially,as many people suspect,it could be a setup, while those in charge figure out what to do.

Posted in: Thousands of Australian students skip school for mass climate protest See in context

This was organised by teachers ---many of the children were of primary school age and were led by their teachers. If the teachers want to demonstrate then do it by themselves not using the children as a front. Returning home from the demo on public transport the teachers were escorting them just like an excursion.

Once Japan starts paying the demands for more will come thick and fast. It a could be never ending and there is no knowing how far back they will want to go-----Hideyoshi is still complained about in Korea.

Unless he's pleading guilty of course he'll say that he's innocent. As for being on remand it's quite usual and it's up to the Judge to make that decision.

Surely there would be millions of American families who would be more than happy to open their homes and their hearts and take in these starving impoverished people and provide for and care for them thereby removing the responsibility for their welfare from the Government. The Americans are world renowned for their generosity and kindheartedness and this would be a good way to prove it.

Posted in: Ghosn's income under-reporting 'may reach $71 million' See in context

Until the matter goes to court the public won't know exactly what it's all about. In the meantime,while he is doing it hard in the jail,perhaps those who are sympathetic to his plight could visit him and take him gifts of whatever it is that he misses most. The luxurious life that he would have become accustomed to would be in stark contrast to the presumably spartan existance that he would be leading now, especially the reported basic Japanese food that prisoners get.

Posted in: Man to sue former boss over yearend party assault resulting in burns See in context

Whoever did this is a bully and they exist in all countries---the way to deal with this is at a time and place of your own choosing with no witnesses. You must take action to convince them that they have made a serious mistake and any repeat of similar action will have a deleterious effect on their well being. It's no use complaining to "The Boss" or anyone else, sympathy,like common sense, is a rare commodity.

Anyone in a foreign country who falls foul of the law has to expect to be treated according to the laws of that country. No doubt he would prefer a stateroom at The Imperial but it doesn't work like that. Anyone who thinks otherwise is totally unrelated to reality.

Surely people should be able to like or dislike tattoos without drawing the ire of others. Tolerance of others opinions?

Posted in: Politicians around the world are ratcheting up the anti-migrant rhetoric during campaigning. What do you think about this? See in context

It's unfortunate that some migrant programs have a detrimental effect on the lives of the residents of the host country in that some migrants extreme religious beliefs bring them into conflict with the law enforcement authorities after they commit murderous attacks at random on members of the public. It could be that countries such as China are aware of these problems and do not want to take the risk of admitting people who may commit the same crimes there.

In some countries with large migrant populations there are serious robbery and murder problems with the local inhabitants being the victims. Melbourne,Australia is an example of what is happening.

Posted in: Rubella spreading across Japan, raising concerns about inbound travel See in context

It's hard to believe that Rubella is still so widespread in Japan when in most civilised countries it is all but eliminated altogether. The tragedy is the effect it can have on pregnant women and their children.

Posted in: Court acquits tattooist for operating without medical license See in context

Tattoos are very popular and common these days and provide a source of amusement and interest to those of us who don't have any. Especially in the warmer weather when tattoo afficionados like to show them off. Tattoo artist should be encouraged rather than discouraged---especially in Japan where tattoo art is of such a high standard.

Posted in: Melbourne knife attacker inspired by Islamic State, police say See in context

Those responsible for "Law and Order" had their eyes off the ball in that this man was able to load up a ute with gas bottles then drive it to where he did and carry out this appalling atrocity. Despite being aware that he was prone to such activities they weren't watching. There are more Police in Melbourne than ever before but they seem to spend an inordinate amount of time in the Police Stations , venturing out only at lunch time to buy food.

It's interesting that these apalling things are going on in countries where payment of the correct rate is not a financial problem---Australia is another country where this sort of thing happens-sometimes by companies where the owner is very wealthy.
