Ah, hard-hitting news story.

Why IS Japan so slow at rolling out the vaccines? Unless they pull their fingers out the Olympics will be a pointless exercise.... Tourism and business travellers will be hit badly, hotels will find it hard to cope... or do they want Japan to be isolated again?

This was just sensationalist pap.
A C list actress marries a prince and doesn't expect to be headline news?
"Oh leave us alone!" (poses for photos)
"Oh leave us alone!" (we're having a baby)
"Oh leave is alone!" (talks about the 'taboo' of losing an unborn child)
"Oh leave us alone!" (we're going to America to get away from the media!)
"Oh leave us alone!" (we're having another baby)
"Oh leave us alone!" (we're going to expose dirty doings at Buck House on a global broadcast)
I have no sympathy for either of them. Meghan would have to have been an utter moron if she expected to be left alone by the media after entering the Royal Family. As an 'actor' (who filmed a steamy romp in a filing room in that series she was in) she should realise that mass exposure comes with the job.
As for Harry - what an enormous disappointment he is. Then again, he always has been a media tart... getting drunk and behaving like the spoilt brat that he is.

Posted in: Do you think film awards like the Oscars, Golden Globes, Emmys and so on will eventually go "gender neutral" and replace Best Actor and Best Actress awards, for example, with Best Lead and Best Supporting Lead, or something like that? See in context
I don't really care about the Oscars or the lovies who gush when they step up to receive their little trophies from other lovies. Who cares if they get their knickers in a twist about being labelled an actress or actor...
What next, there are no losers, everyone is a winner, and they all get a sweetie and a book token.

Whenever I'm in Japan and at a railway station, or even on the train this is always at the back of my mind: is someone going to kill themselves and I'll see it?
There are always solutions to every problem - topping yourself should never be an option.

By the time the Japanese approve some of these vaccines here in the UK we'll all have had our second doses!
i will not accept vaccination with the AZ vaccine nor the Chinese junk. But i am fine with J&J, Pfizer, Moderna en even Sputnik
Why on earth not? A recent study showed the Oxford/AZ vaccine is 84% effective at preventing serious illness with Covid. Stop buying into the negative hype.

Interesting reading the posts above - some people are saying that AZ have not even applied for the vaccine to be rolled out in Japan, and yet the article says:
Britain's AstraZeneca Plc, meanwhile, has said it has formally filed a request to the ministry for approval of its vaccine.
So... it looks like the AZ have applied.
As for the spat between the EU and UK over AZ: The plants in the EU which are producing the vaccine there were not producing enough and the EU believed they had failed in supplying the vaccine... they then demanded that the AZ plants in the UK divert stock to the EU to fulfill the contract. The UK said no, and then the EU decided to play silly buggers with the NI/Eire border... in the end it's all politics.
As for Japan... I really don't understand why they do everything so slowly when it comes to things like this: they can rebuild in weeks after an earthquake, but something like the right syringes and vaccine approval... like wading through treacle.
Also isn't the AZ manufactured for free in other countries all over the world?

And the negative comments toward the UK from posters seem a little odd to me. Japan doesn't have many friends in Asia, so having the UK (a friend of Japan) here is a positive thing, no?
It wouldn't surprise me if they were CCP trolls (remember they don't like us... and we recently offered to let UK Passport holders from HK to come to the UK... which the CCP didn't like, tee hee)
As for the request itself... it's not a unique. Israel and Russia take part in the Eurovision Song Contest despite not being European lol

Japan must be taking advice from Australia... they are also delaying vaccine roll out for some reason. Here in the UK my mother has just had her jab

It's difficult to watch something from the 70s (like the Goodies on British TV) when Rolf Harris is gently mocked - guy was a monster. Gary Glitter, I can't listen to... and Jimmy Saville... he was always creepy. Louis Theroux interviewed him and he was just a weirdo.
I was never a fan of Spacey or Cosby, and I'd never heard of OJ Simpson before the car chase. I loved the Naked Gun series of films but Simpson's character never really stuck in my memory - I watched them for Leslie Nielson.

I think humans are intelligent and flexible and will make changes for the good of mankind when the vaccine is widely used.
In fairness the rates wouldn't be so high if so-called intelligent people would act responsibly and stop spreading the virus.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's government is to declare a climate emergency in a symbolic step to increase pressure for action to combat global warming.
Let's get the pandemic out of the way before we worry about other things... just my opinion of course

Yes, of course I would have the vaccine... unless there are medical reasons I see no reason not to. Only the tinfoil hat brigade would refuse it unless on medical grounds.

I'd be amazed if Japan let anyone into the country by summer - I'm booked to fly to Japan at the end of April but I know I will need to rebook (again).

I'd have it without a pause, and only the most ardent anti-vaxers or conspiracy nuts would refuse.

As a non American I watch the news utterly gobsmacked - a president who stamps his feet like a petulant child because things don't appear to be going his way... threatens legal action for the same reason... protesters (some armed) turning up at counting depots because they're cult leader has thrown his toys out of the pram... seriously this is all great TV. Certainly a good distraction from the misery of COVID.

Go to Japan like I was meant to do at the end of this month for a holiday and see my friends... hopefully by the end of April next year things will have changed.

I don't trust the PRC but there's no way they would have deliberately set out to kill hundreds of thousands of people with a virus... that way lies the tinfoil hat brigade. What would they gain? Look at the way the world thinks of China even now - if it was deliberate then it backfired massively.
Nope, it wasn't man made and it wasn't deliberately unleashed upon the world.

No thanks. There is no free lunch. Probably the food and drinks are bad quality and the rooms are not clean.
Unreal... Sounds like a fantastic deal... as for the lack of a lunch - go to a restaurant, hardly going to break the bank is it?

Masks are only the symbol of oppression, silencing and an attempt to erase our identities. If it is indeed the symbol of this 'plandemic' it does not represent a lot of us.
Absolute mince! I suppose you also deny the existence of the virus as well? Would you turn down a vaccine? Oh, no... you probably think Bill Gates has inserted nano tracking thingies...
