Yeah right, have we forgotten the Plaza Accords already?
This time it's with Trump at the helm. Only a truly foolish dupe would support Trump's demands here

Yeah yeah, conspiracies around every corner right? Let me guess, the Earth is flat and the moon landing was faked too right? He really isn't helping himself here

A very poor and disturbing decision by the UK, similar to what has come out of Australia and New Zealand in recent weeks. How on Earth do you propose FB and YT to monitor every single piece of content? Algorithms can only go so far as people are creative when reporting this sort of content once it has been banned once. Also, what are the time periods for these companies to remove content? Should FB hire 1 million additional employees and put them into the red to check every piece of content that gets reported?

Sounds pretty clear that he broke his bail conditions. If his wife facilitated it, then she's in trouble too!

B,b,but he saved Nissan and he's caught up in a grand conspiracy theory! Yeah right, now we find out he's been gifted French monarchical parties at the Versailles like a king. This criminal is exactly where he should be.
Well done Japan! It only took the goofy French half a year more to come to the same conclusion

So Japan is the same as Ireland, South Korea, Norway, India, Switzerland, New Zealand, Italy, the EU, and the UN in not fully committing to recognition? Sounds perfectly reasonable and practical and glad this position has been taken by Japan. One must think clearly before supporting Trump's agenda

@kohakuebisu: Agreed! She handled herself well when Serena disgraced herself permanently in front of the world by throwing a tantrum in the US Opens. Her reputation stained forever and cannot be unseen

Surprised Serena didn't throw another tantrum and claim sexism again after losing, good on her for maturing!

Yeah right, promise not to flee just like he promised not to steal and commit egregious crimes? He's a bad liar, those ropes suit him better
-9 ( +10 / -19 )
What debate is there that this sparked? He is a flight risk so needs to be restrained. Just like Ghosn

Agreed, Canada seems to be screwing up constantly lately. Their hollow virtue signalling is tiresome and fake

Good to know that even a CEO is not above the law in Japan. Hopefully this will come to the West one day, but there's no chance of that

So these foreign interns have a lower death rate than native Japanese and far higher wages and technical opportunities than in their home countries, and they're complaining?
This is a good way to create heavy resentment towards these visitors and they should be careful about creating a backash against them as we are seeing everywhere around the world

Well done to the whistleblower who exposed this fraud, thankfully we won't ever know his identity. This is a warning to all the super rich and powerful that they aren't above the law

Are we supposed to feel sorry for the Japanese and foreign "English teachers" who are woefully unqualified to teach and who have had decades to teach English to Japanese students with abysmal results?
No, no one feels sorry for them. As the article itself says, the kids feel more comfortable with robots, which says a lot about the quality of the "English teachers" here. Replace them all and see how it goes, it can't be any worse than it already is

Hopefully this means that tourism has peaked in Japan. Already it is becoming quite unbearable with the current number of tourists. One only has to look at Paris or Rome to see what happens when tourism runs amok

It's surreal how much a monster she's turned out to be.. She herself who relied so heavily on coverage by foreign and independent media while she was arrested for decades, is now turning around and paying back the gratitude by brutally stamping them out. There is definitely no way back for her now. She's done

Now even the UN is pretending that the irreversible agreement between South Korea and Japan a few years ago doesn't exist. The UN has just set an appalling and shameful precedent and all nations across the world should follow the UN's lead and break any and all signed international agreements like Trump did with Iran

Very good to hear the anti-whalers or anti-dolphiners or whatever are being treated as possible terrorists. Any disruption whatsoever to the locals' lives should be met with full prosecution and jail. Enough is enough
@Hallowed: Agreed, the anti-whalers can whinge and complain all they want, but as soon as they disrupt real people in their lives or their jobs, they should be considered terrorists and taken down as they are acting towards a political and ideological cause and goal.
Thankfully they aren't brave enough to act for real change though

About time we start seeing autonomous cars on the roads. Even if they are still early in development, I would say they are already dozens of times safer than humans, who should be nowhere near cars.
Thankfully this is just around the corner and we won't see irrational and emotional humans behind the wheel soon

This will bring a lot of competition to the English language learning industry and will heavily drive down costs I assume.

It's good to see Japan have a rational and sensible approach to potential immigration. Unskilled immigration for the sake of virtue signaling is thankfully unacceptable in Japan and will remain so. Skilled workers and value-adders only

Japan is not wrong here, in what they say, but the nation is sorely lacking in HOW it says and does things, which is why it is so far behind in diplomacy
Yeah exactly! Why can't Japan be better at diplomacy like America's Trump, UK's BoJo, Canada's Freeland, or any other comparable morons? What a hilariously silly comment

Glad to see Japan working towards peace, unlike almost any other nation on Earth. By far the most peaceful country in the world at the moment, very well done

Good to hear a big turnout to honour Japan's soldiers. although Abe should really be going in person
