Posted in: Scandals likely put Abe on defensive as Constitution reform looms See in context

All the polls? I only know of one that said that. I seriously have to wonder who they asked, and if they understood the questions.

NHK, Nikkei, Kyodo, TBS, Yomuri, Tv Tokyo,

" I seriously have to wonder who they asked, and if they understood the questions."

 I seriously have to wonder if you be saying the same thing, if the polls showed Abe losing support.

This makes sense as Japanese people get poorer and poorer.

Nonsense.

Japan GDP per capita has been growing .705% annually. Japanese people are getting richer not poorer.

With support ratings falling after the scandals over cherry blossom viewing and casinos emerged, but

Huh? Why are they leaking this news now?

Because Ghosn has been attacking Japan and Nissan thru the press, Japan and Nissan are simply punching back.

Posted in: Lawmaker in casino scandal indicted on bribery charge See in context

It is the first time in a decade that a Japanese lawmaker has been indicted.

Like this is supposed to mean something here? To me it's more a lack of any cojones on the part of the prosecutors and police to investigate those who are suspected of wrongdoing.

And that goes to the very top of the ladder too!

In other words, you can't believe the Japanese system is so clean because your own country is corrupt
