Since 7 of our fellow humans were killed whilst being entrusted to a billion dollar system that taxpayers paid for, I think the public has a right to know why and how that system failed them.

That line of reason from you will never stand for the simple fact that you have stated numerous times your opposition and hatred toward Amercia and I also guess you are not an American or Japanese taxpayer.

The Japanese Coast Guard have not released any information so far.

Sorry not bushed, still wait for the final report.

what makes you believe you are entitled to know anything. I would hope that no information is released until after a full investigation is complete and the families of the deceased notified before its made public. What puts you at the head of the line?

But it's been a week already, and they still can't agree on the time of the accident.

Please inform us of any major maritime accident which was able to even start an investigation let alone complete one, within the same week?

Your demands are unrealistic but that does not prevent you from repeatedly making them.

If Trump's Great Solar Wall gets the go ahead from congress it will probably be built by cheap Mexican labor from the south who will just return home highly. The concrete and other construction materials will probably also be bought from the south. Still if Mexicans can earn a wage without actually entering the USA might cut back on illegal immigrants.

New classes at Mexican schools and college will be tunnel construction.

Japan will need at least 30 million immigrants by 2050, to do the work and pay the taxes to support all the welfare and pensions for a mostly aged Japanese society.

I think immigrants can maintain something of their own culture as well as assimilate into the larger Japanese society. When I first came here, so many moons ago, I thought I had to "become Japanese" and sort of give up my "British" which I didn't mind since I mostly liked most of the Japanese and the traditions.

After about ten years, I realized, that it was ok and quite acceptable to actual be British and live in Japanese society too. I don't do the foreign clubs, societies like the British Society which I did for a while nor join a foreigners club like the Kobe Club, which is too expensive unless you are a company director and your company picks up the tab. I actually know very few foreigners and most of my time with Japanese people. But I do have some Chinese and Korean friends, and the odd American.

Outside, I behave mostly like Japanese and at home I behave mostly like British.

Sad day for the families and friends of the deceased sailors.

The USS Fitzgerald may not have caused the collision but should have been able to quickly avoid the container ship. There should been three watchmen with binoculars on the port and starboard sides and the stern. The captain would be woken if any ship comes within 4,000 meters and on the bridge.

Probably the container ship was on automatic pilot which might explain the strange changes in course and whoever was in the bridge was asleep or not paying attention.

Burning Bush or most likely the full investigation will reveal actually what happened and at that time bring enclosure to the families of the deceased sailors.

You DON'T speak for the UK

Nor do you. Well I do more than you, since I'm British and you are not and have already stated

I get my British Islamic terror attacks all confused..

You also fudge the figures or refuse to acknowledge them and inflate what is happening in reality on the ground.

Poland has indeed halted all Muslim immigration and their terrorism numbers are zero.

What reference would that be to "muslim immigration" into the UK, I think another point you clearly misunderstand.

In the UK there are about 3 million muslims, less than 5% of the population. Thousands of Turkish muslims have lived in the UK for many decades. 48% or nearly half of all British muslims are born in Britain. 73% of all British muslims only have British nationality, only have British passports and consider themselves to be British.

Maybe, I'm guessing you might mean "refugees". Currently, the are about 120,000 refugees which would be less than 0.18% of the population. In Sweden there are about 160,000 refugees with a population of only about 10 million.

Less than 30% of British asylum applications are granted.

Muslims living in Britain, those born there and those who immigrated can apply for other family members to join them, although it's not automatic. Like all British citizens, they are free to marry a non British spouse and then apply for a spouse visa.

I think its the duty of countries like Britain to accept refugees and asylum seekers so a total muslim ban would be unworkable and even President Trump has found it impossible to introduce a limited period ban from a limited number of countries, six I believe.

There about 65 million refugees worldwide, show a little heart and compassion for those!

I need 3-5 t-shirts per day and always take one or even two with me when I'm out. The non sweat are not sweat proof are just better at absorbing it. Just like a "sweat shirt".

I pointed out to clamenza who stated there will be another attack in weeks, there have been seven terrorists attacks since July 2005, a period of 131 months. The next attack could be days, weeks, months, years, never. I think its more about "I told you so" than anything to do with PC and more to do with gloating but what are your opinions rather than just chasing that of others.

How should Britain and the rest of the EU be doing to stop the terrible and tragic Jihadist attacks? What can the governments and security do that's not already being done? Even as we speak in Britain a new anti terrorist unit is being formed and the number of highly armed police on the streets are being increased.

Arrests of suspects were carried out yesterday, 12 I think. Even the SAS are on the city streets has homeless people.

Don't understand your reference to Germany?

thanks, so why not dual nationality and two passports? I know the Japanese prefer only one but don't seem like they check and the British allow dual nationality. I can return to the UK but not my Japanese wife automatically because we have lived here for decades and she or we would need to pass the financial test which we would fail because we are old and retired.

Itsonlyrocknroll,

so technically, at least from the British point you have dual nationality entitling you to all the benefits of every British citizen other than when you are in Japan. Not sure what you mean by "reside outside of the UK for prolonged periods."

My mother is British born but also American from marriage and holds both passports being dual nationality. She has lived in Florida for 30 years but still receives her pension and other benefits.

Something similar with a brother in New York, my son who is British-French and my youngest brother in Rome who is British-Italian. Both of those have no problem with the Brexit.

There are many entitled to and claiming passports from Ireland, Germany and all other EU countries.

accept but since there have been less than ten Islamic terrorists attacks since the 2005 bombing in London but then others across Europe especially in France and like the post in Belgium.

Of course, even a single attack is still one too many.The British security forces and others across Europe are working to thwart those attacks including closing down Internet site but one closed another one opens.

Today in Britain 11 people with possible terrorist connections arrested.

zichi- Interesting that Sadiq Khan finally managed to show compassion for a terrorist attack - when it turned out to be a white guy for a change!

Think you must be confused as usual or trying to confuse the issue agin as usual. There was a terrorist attack by three Islamic extremists in Borough and London Bridge. A couple of days later there was a memorial for the victims held in Potters Field Park attended by an important group of political and religious leaders including the Mayor of London who made a speech condemning the attack and Islamic terrorists.

From your comment, you are now saying something about the Finsbury Park attack with a white guy driving a van into muslims?

Zichi, you only have to open your eyes and get out of your echo chamber. I will not take 1 minute out of my time to provide you with links you won't only ignore, but dismiss.

Convenient, but I also suggested that you watch the YouTube video of the Mayor of London making a speech at the Potter Fields Park memorial for the attack In Borough when he speaks against the Islamic terrorists, especially since you previously claimed he had not done so.

Actually, Zichi. Strike that. I just thought of a link that will explain all very clearly...BREXIT

Brexit has nothing to do with terrorism since most of the people are coming from other EU countries and will be allowed to stay, about 3 million of them. Brexit is about leaving the EU. The first attack this year on the Westminster Bridge was by a British born christian who converted to Islam.

and shame on you for suggesting I look forward to future violence and death. Another disgusting comment not worthy of this site.

oh really when you state like,

next suicidal terrorist who will attack in the coming weeks.

Sounds like gloating to me. For your knowledge base, since the July 2005 bombing attack there have been about seven Islamic terrorist attacks over 131 months, which average out at one attack every 18 months, so your gloating will have to be put on hold.

All so you won't offend any of your PC overlords.

Second or third time you have stated that. Care to inform me who the PC overlords actually are or just a fragment of your imagination?

Both the London attacks, and the one in Manchester brought out the muslim community and leaders who visited the sites and attended the memorials. At the Finsbury Park attack, the local Londoners rallied around for the victims and survivors. In Manchester, the number of hate attacks against Muslims, immigrants and Jews increased 500% from the time of the bombing but those involved are mostly low educated right wing extremists.

The Finsbury Park attack was a hate attack.

The Grenfell Tower fire in West London with both muslim and non muslims have brought them together for mutual aid and support and again from the local London community and from across the whole of London and the country. So many positive sights like people running with bottles of water for the immigrant muslim survivors. Thousands and tens of thousands of clothing, shoes prams, bedding and furniture donated. The true spirit of the people.

So you would have nothing to gloat over, you actually want them to happen,

Zichi - if you think for a second those who are very concerned or outraged at Muslim terrorism in Britain only in "extreme blogs and that sort of thing" , then you have your head in the sand and have been cowed by your PC overlords. 

So your are unable to provide a single link to a MSM article showing people have the same concerns as you. What PC overloads?

So why did he say, "hope someone got tapes" and why wait for so long before admitting he had none and anyway "who does tapes?" Sounds so Nixon. And the way he said it so many times implied he had them. We all know one character Trump is good at. He just wanted "to warn" Comey to tell the truth a point he failed at.

And I seriously doubt you speak for all of the UK. A casual look at the news shows a great many Britains share the same concerns I do

Then you will have no problem with providing a link to a major new media outlet to support your claim. I read all the major papers and watch the BBC News and others but I don't see that except in extreme blogs and that sort of thing. It was interesting how many Londoners turned up in Finsbury Park to give their support to the victims, some even holding banners.

The majority of Muslims including the Mayor of London don't support extreme Islamism. Did you ever check out his speech at the Potters Field Park like I suggested.

I don't speak for all of the UK but the majority hold the same views. I doubt there's a single person who can do that.

It will take many many years before the Islamic terrorists could even equal one tenth of those by the IRA who stopped their campaign after 70 years, 1939-2009, because of the Northern Ireland Peace Accord.
