@Zaphod. The neo- imperialists in Brussels? Or is it more to do with the colonial mindset of the British government? They do not seem to get over the fact that Britain is no longer a major player in the world. Rule Britannia!

It is about the Queen abdicated like most royal families in Europe. She is getting older by the day and she will not be able to carry out all her commitments and visits.

BOYCOTT! But king Bach won't be happy about the money he is going to earn plus the VIP treatment. Despite all the criticisms from the Japanese media during the Olympics, this man is obviously shameless.

One thing some countries fail to understand is how these idiots are radicalized. Is it in their local mosque, social media, moslem preachers on YouTube? If so, then keep an eye and monitor these platforms. I once walked into a shop owned by a Bangladeshi and sure enough he was watching these hate preachers on YouTube. This incident was not in Japan.

Posted in: Human rights groups around the world are urging the International Olympic Committee to rescind its decision to hold the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing and that countries boycott the Games over China's human rights violations of more than a million Uyghur Muslims. Do you support such a call? See in context
One of the main reasons to boycott the winter Olympics in China is the Wuhan virus- which everyone has forgotten to mention. What'smore, Hong Kong, the Uighers, Tibet, and now Taiwan. Xi the Pooh has grand plans for his autocratic and undemocratic regime.

I don't give two hoots about their lives or their relationship. The thing about celebrities is that they crave for attention because they lead shallow lives. I feel sorry for both of them .

@ wandelust. 'Slow reaction as usual from EU bureaucracy - cases have been up for around six weeks!' Why so much interest in criticising the EU and spreading fake news? Have you checked the latest covid figures in the UK ? It has the highest rate of infections and deaths currently. Please get your facts right.

@ Simian Lane. "The EU sucks. This is completely backward thinking. The emphasis should be on returning freedoms to normal ASAP". Please get your facts right before you write a comment. The UK currently has the highest infection rates and deaths in Europe. Most European countries are refusing British tourists and there are many restrictions. Any scientific facts/ data you can quote are welcome before you talk about freedoms.

I wonder if king Bach of the IOC is informed about these figures because he had promised a safe and secure Olympics. Remember? Maybe he simply does not care as long as he is getting the VIP treatment and counting the money in his blank account. Shameless!

Who cares? The trigger is always MONEY, no matter what statements or claims they make. They should seriously retire and enjoy giving some of their millions to worthy causes.

I wonder how is more of a threat to the Chinese people, effeminte men or corrupt party officials who are accumulating massive wealth secretly without any accountability? The CCP now obviously sees everything as an internal threat to its power.

Tough times ahead for the UK under Boris Johnson. The country seems to be so desperate for trade deals with faraway countries rather than its neighbours. The Brexit referendum was built on lies and misinformation and now people in the UK are beginning to feel the effects. Shortage of truck drivers, supermarket staff, deliveries, etc...Even Britsish farmers who voted Brexit are complaining about the lack of government funds.

Thanks WHO for messing up the whole pandemic and sending a mission to China which came back with no credible evidence. MILLIONS of people worldwide have the right to know the origin of the Wuhan virus. And Tedros's visit to Tokyo for the opening ceremony during a raging pandemic shows how incompetent these bureaucrats at WHO are.

What a bad joke by the CCP. Indoctrinating and brainwashing children at such a young age is extremely dangerous. Do they remember the horrors of Mao Tsetung? It started with the so called " red book" which caused the death of millions of innocent people.

@ John. Fully agree. What alternative solutions does Murakami have in mind? Criticising will not solve the problem. What would he have done if he were the Prime minister? Another publicity stunt to sell more books and make more money?

@Mr Kipling. Fully agree. The Israeli army sometimes shoots and kills young Palestinians throwing stones and demonstrating against illegal settlements in occupied territtories. Never believe the Israeli narrative. It is all state-sponsored propaganda.

Agreed with the previous comments. King Bach obviously does not give a damn about what the scientists say nor about what local people think..The trigger is money and enjoying his luxury accommodation and the attention. He could have done the speech online.

If you believe this piece of news, you would believe anything ( the world is flat?). All this information comes from the Chinese-controlled media . No independent source is available to verify these lies and party propaganda.

This man is shameless after all the controversy he caused during his first visit. King Bach will ,of course, be enjoying his luxury hotel accommodation and private body guards all paid by Japanese tax payers and not out of his pocket. His face in this photo turns my stomach. Time to retire and start counting the millions you have in your bank account. What a disgrace to sporting.

Congrats PM Ardern. The world needs more competent leaders like her.

Bach is one of those unelected members of an organisation where there is zero transparency. His visit to Hiroshima was unnecessary. He should have paid from his own pocket, and this is not counting the cost of his stay in a luxury hotel in Tokyo. Sorry for the Japanese tax payers who are going to foot the bill. This man has become too big for his boots.

So killing random innocent people is not terror-related. Had it been a moslem, it would definitely be classified as such. Terror has no religion nor ethnicity.

China has obviously something to hide by refusing further investigations into the origin of the Wuhan virus. WHO is another circus run by clowns. MILLIONS of people around the world have the right to know the origins of the virus. Ben Embarak and his team are utterly incompetent and they came back from China with zero evidence. What a waste of time and money.

It is funny how Israel can get away with anything. Occupying Palestinian lands, disrepecting International law and U.N. resolutions, etc.. And if you criticise Israel, you are considered anti- semitic. As long as this country refuses any peace deal with the Palestinians, there will never be peace in that region and beyond.
1 ( +16 / -15 )
"Sad there is so much hate for Israel on a human level. It’s beyond geo-politics." What about Israeli hate for the Palestinians who are treated like second hand citizens and live under a state of occupation? Please read the historical facts before you jump to conclusions.
