Suga, the newly non-elected PM of the same old ultranationalist party, number 3 after Abe in Nippon Kaishin, showing support for his democratic- aspiring country by making nice with authoritarian regimes such as Vietnam and Indonesia. This guy is dangerously untutored.
What a player.

Encouraging to know that the police here are maintaining their superlative efforts in combating serious crime to keep us all safe. I hope and trust that they have also delved into her bicycle licensing and will throw the book at this contemptible menace if it is not in order.

Despite the ecumenical call for peace - uttered here by some in almost desperation - Muslims around the world have to face up to the fact that their holy text, the Koran, along with the Hadith, provide the warrant and license for the most extreme acts of violence and murder by those who invoke them and Allah. The problem is ideological, and until the Koran, and consequently Islam, undergoes a reformation as did the Bible and Christianity, under Luther principally, then the mayhem and cult of death will continue. It is up to peace-loving Muslims everywhere to insist on excising the most vicious parts of their holy texts and to re-educate, rather than poison, their children. That moment cannot come soon enough.
