If anything, this storm in a teacup might show the Japanese how Korean people actually feel. But that is unlikely as anyone who is a "fan" of such garbage wouldn't know much about history or politics, let alone care less.

It's a good wine, but I've had so much better for less the price.

No. It is refuse. The only reason it attracts fanfare is because the Japanese media will show up for anything related to publicity for local companies, and that the local importers were conned, probably quite easily, back in the bubble days, and the fact that anyone who buys it isn't doing so because they like it but because they think it might give them some sort of status.

Good result. The liberal party need to purge themselves of the toxic right before they can lead again. They will be wiped out at the next election which is the best chance for them to get rid of dead wood, aka Abbott. If only there were elections for the media so we could get rid of Murdoch's slavish groupies

This is the last, desperate ploy for the government to hold on to power. They think their constituents are mugs and they will be severely punished for it at the coming by-election and election. Unfortunately the idiots responsible for this mess such as Abbott will retain their seats and cause more destability for future governments.

She won't do any time in the slammer but her "career" is finished. Hopefully her husband has a job. It's been good knowing you hitomi.

Posted in: X Japan leader Yoshiki says he will never stop trying to crack U.S. market See in context

Even if he stops wearing makeup, which went out in the eighties, he will never be popular outside of Japan. The difference between Japan and the rest of the world, in terms of the entertainment industry, is that in normal places the fans decide what is good. In Japan the advertising/entertainment industry decides what is good and the "fans" abide slavishly.

Unfortunately there are many crimes like this.

The death penalty does not work simply because it is not a tool. It is the most severe form of punishment and is more than appropriate for scum like this but he only killed one child so he will spend 10 years eating up taxpayer's money before getting a second chance

These kids are twats. Most are but they still need to be shamed so that they can avoid doing such stupid stuff in the future. If I were on holiday and it were ruined by such twats my response would be a lot more physical

You say that neither are success stories but at any point in history one is more preferable than the other. Lets face it, political parties are led by leaders and filled with quite a lot of bench-warmers.

they are 100% guaranteed to still disappoint and fail.

And what is your expectation of the opposition? Labor will spend more on giving money to the dole-bludgers, more on supporting the unions which are the cause of the high-priced services in Australia. 50 years ago the Labor party helped to bring Australia forward but in this day and age they are dinosaurs. These days governments are just businesses. Would you rather have a successful businessman run your business or a former union stooge?

The only chance of a valid opposition is if Miss Koike can mount a valid national opposition party.

Abe is coated with teflon at the moment and nothing is sticking. Inada knew if she retracted the remarks there would be no serious repercussions. It is up to the voters to understand where that crummy taste left in their mouths is taking this country. Koike seems to have a much better head and will hopefully inflict some more damage on them in the upcoming Tokyo election.

I agree with the sentiment but the whole element of surprise thing with the large amount of explosives being detonated doesn't really match. The fact that they were slaughtered violently and quickly sounds good enough for me. Good riddance you filthy animals.

The company taking over is a shipbuilding company called Tsuneishi that wants to be like one of the big-boy zaibatsu. They probably view this as an opportunity to extend their publicity to a wider audience and establish a more well-known brand as most people have probably never heard the name outside of Hiroshima.

A newspaper being run by a public relations firm? I'm sure the core ethics of journalism will be on hand to make sure the ship steers a true course. All the way to the bank.
