Posted in: 2 major mobile carriers to introduce cheaper plans after gov't pressure See in context

so which Japanese carrier or service do you recommend which provides unlimited calls 24/7, unlimited messages and at least 1GB of data?

I am not implying there is a Japanese carrier that offers such a deal. I am just merely saying that in this day and age, it should costs more than that.

Anything which costs more than 2500 Yen/Month for unlimited calls/data for a new smartphone is too expensive.

Trump is going to win. Many who hate him will not accept the result of the vote, and some of them will become violent and will riot.

The police tried to back away from him while repeatedly shouting at him to back off and drop the knife. He had more than 30 seconds to do this. He continued approaching the officers with the weapon when they shot him.

This is why tasers are no good:

Because it is not in the interests of the EU to have a successful UK after Brexit.

And judging by the record breaking voter turnout already, American voters don't react kindly to such blatant attempts to subvert the right to vote.

So if Trump wins, are you going to quickly switch tack and say the result isn't valid?

Jesus being trapped in Wales. Sounds horrific.

I don't think Jesus is trapped in Wales. In any case, there are worse places to be trapped. Wales is a very nice place.

The Brexit referendum wasn't actually legally binding, handing Scottish nationalists a convenient common law precedent to argue for IndyRef 2. Catalunya, on the other hand, would have a tougher time seceding from civil law Spain.

And all power to them if that's what they wish.

It is very interesting that when you check the polling for "Should Scotland be an Independent Country?", it's about 55% for Yes and 45% for No.

But when the question is "Should Scotland leave the UK or remain in the UK?", it's about 55% for remain and 38% for leave.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proposed_second_Scottish_independence_referendum#Opinion_polling

It seems that a lot of Scots like the idea of Scotland being independent, but don't really want to leave the UK.

*Incorrect. Spain never said it would oppose an independent Scottish application if IndyRef 1 was successful.*

https://fullfact.org/europe/eu-membership-spain-scotland/

Spain has said that Scotland would have to leave the EU and re-apply from the outside.

This means it would not be possible for Scotland to join as it doesn't meet the requirements of being a member (with a national debt worse than Greece's). Also, Spain would still veto them when push comes to shove. It's easy to say they won't while Scotland is part of the UK.

*Brexit changed everything, and don't forget *Scotland voted 62% Remain.

Yep. And pretty much most of the those that voted in Scotland for the EU Referendum were those who want an independent Scotland. I would like to polling which asks the question "If you have to choose either the UK or EU, which one would you choose?". Again, push comes to shove, Scottish people will choose the UK (their largest export market, border issues, currency becoming the Euro etc.).

Steroid beef, chlorinated chicken and hormonal milk, all courtesy of Uncle Sam, to compensate for the total destruction of British agriculture. Bless.

So no other products besides those from the US will be sold in the UK?

@Desert Tortoise

I know you don't like to UK, but let's base some things in reality.

Sounds so nice but the EU holds all the cards and is under no obligation to conduct trade with the UK until they meet the EUs terms.

Yes, they are. They are obligated to conduct trade. Europeans businesses such as BMW and VW wouldn't allow them not to, either.

And Scotland will demand independence so they can re-join the EU.

They would have to hold a referendum first and vote to leave. But even if they do, Spain isn't going to allow Scotland to join the EU because of Catalonia.

Britain as we know it today is done.

You don't like Britain. We get it.

No Deal please! It's the only way a clean break can be achieved.

It won't be a No Deal, though. Boris will cave as usual.

Then again, she isn’t a moron

So if a person isn't wearing a mask of face shield, they are a moron in your eyes? There are some (I have friends) who aren't even able to use face shields because of mental health issues and conditions such as cleithrophobia.

Don't be quick to judge others who you deem to be morons.

I just wish we could raise the average IQ of the country by getting rid of these morons but they infect non-morons.

How do you suggest of 'getting rid'? A bit of an unpleasant thing to say.

There are some people who aren't able to wear masks due to health conditions, and with comments like yours, these people would no doubt be classed as 'morons'.

Twitter should be more focused on celebs who retweet things like dodgy videos from racist organizations. This is far more dangerous and corrosive than trashy wishes to see sick people die.

How about Twittering deleting both?

Posted in: Toyota, Nissan to seek reimbursement from UK if Brexit talks fail: Nikkei See in context

If the UK cant get 0% tariffs to the EU , which seems unlikely, then it would be far cheaper to manufacture in Japan or build plants in the EU.

Japanese companies will not build plants in the EU.

They would move production back to Japan. The EU-Japan trade agreement means that it is easier for Japan to manufacture the cars in Japan and then ship them to the EU. That is why Nissan closed its Spanish plant and moved production back to Japan.

Posted in: October to bring various price changes for Japan residents See in context

Of Japan's 47 prefectures, 40 -- not including Hokkaido, Tokyo, Shizuoka, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima and Yamaguchi -- will raise minimum wages by between 1 yen and 3 yen, in steps.

If in steps, does that mean an increase of 1 yen each month for three months?

Also, why aren't the increases in price for things like alcohol introduced in steps?

I think many people are making the mistake of labelling the protest to suit their own politics.

You should watch some interviews of the people who were demonstrating. Quite interesting to see what type of people made up the protest:

As we know, the good British people never discuss the war against Japan without full awareness of the morality and justice underlying their own country's actions.

This isn't true, though. It is a topic which has been thoroughly talked about. Myanmar in particular.

I agree. I have a go at leftie nuts ( particularly the ‘woke’ crowd ) as well as conspiracy theory nuts.

You don't though, Jimizo. You say you do, but you don't really.
