Did you actually know that British Citizens living overseas can't vote in UK elections?

I think that only applies after 15 years? Which includes me.

Britain does not need saving from the EU it needs saving from those who want to take the country out.

Both Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear disaster contaminated a large area of land. The cost of dealing with the Fukushima nuclear disaster will cost the tax payer more than ¥100 trillion take more than 100 years.

All of these are public utilities whose rates are set by the government and who derive their profits from the taxpayer, correct? So it's really the taxpayer being forced to subsidize this boondoggle.

The power companies are private utilities not public but have their power charges set by the government. The government own 51% of the TEPCO stock. The profits are from the customers not taxpayers.

Nuclear reactors in themselves might be near zero emissions but nuclear energy isn't since it also requires external power supplies to operate it. Construction. Many aspects involve fossil. fuels. The extraction of the uranium in Australia for instance. Transported to Japan and then to France to be turned into nuclear fuel rods an back to Japan and after use transported for reprocessing and thousands of years of storage.

Better vote in the Brexit Party then if you want to save your country from the EU.

Simply, that would be nuts, crazy or whatever word you want to call because the Brexit party have no policies other than the one to leave the EU.

Yes. And you guys don't even know those young kids believed their souls at least could safely return home at YASUKUNI and promised meeting each other at YASUKUNI not Chidorigafuji, at dawn when they took off

Just like all religions, the Shinto practiced at Yasukuni is based on a system of make belief!

The EU countries don't have to agree to all the policies like Britain not being a member of the Euro.

I meet several Brits who are pro Brexit and definitely not racist (some even racial minorities in the UK). Whether right or wrong their argument was that they did not want un-elected officials in the EU Parliament making decisions impacting their every day life. I found nothing racist about that at all.

The EU parliament is made up from elected politicians from each country which decides on and votes on policy. No policy is made by any unelected officials.

Gross error.

I think it was three times. The first in 1966, the second in 1973 and the third in 1978. All the sentences were favorable to the government's theses.

ok! thanks for the learning, and the correction.

Japanese extremists or extreme right wing revisionists of America or my own country Britain should always be challenged. Sometimes I have to experience walking pass their black vans with speakers on top, sometimes with military uniform and I always stop and stare because it bothers the hell out of them.

Revisionism is not acceptable whether its Japanese, Korean or American.

My family and community were required to fight against the Imperial Japanese in Burma and Indian and we paid a heavy price for it.

Again, in the Korean War, my family and community fought to defend Korea against the Chinese/Russians from the north and again we paid a heavy price for it.

The majority of Japanese were no longer born when WW2 happened.

The problem with the Yasukuni is where do we draw the line between free speech and revisionism.

I think PM Abe went to Yasukuni only once but to the National Cemetery every year. But I wish all the politicians would stop but they are not breaking any laws.

None of the Japanese war criminals with "Kami" at Yasukuni Shrine were found guilty of any war crimes against any Koreans. What of the Korean war criminals?

There are no actual war criminals at the Yasukuni Shrine. Names are written onto paper which turns to dust. The whole show is a fake based on the beliefs of the Shinto religion which is only followed by 70% of the Japanese.

There's nothing to remove because there's nothing there.

Posted in: 'Most overrated general' Mattis takes swipe at Trump See in context

Trump is dangerous because he makes serious decisions without consulting with his aides or experts even when it involves military decisions like with withdrawing troops from Syria and announced on Twitter and a threatening letter to the Turkish president. Trump lacks any military experience and knowledge believing the Brits had airfields back in the 1750's and America has had thousands of years of relationships with Italy all the way back to the era of the Romans.

Japan did not draft ethnic Koreans into its military until 1944 when the tide of WW II turned against it. Until 1944, enlistment in the Imperial Japanese Army by ethnic Koreans was voluntary, and highly competitive. From a 14% acceptance rate in 1938, it dropped to a 2% acceptance rate in 1943 while the raw number of applicants increased from 3000 per annum to 300,000 in just five years during World War II.

The only point that matters is that JP Trump supporters need to get over Hillary and move on.

Why does America need Saudi except for selling massive amounts of weapons. A country which produced the 9/11 terrorists and supports more terrorism than Iran. America only imports 11% of oil, so it can't be the oil.

Free speech yes, but that does not make it correct speech. The revisionism of the Yasukuni War Museum is what it is, revisionism which is not illegal here, but in some European countries it is.

The Yasukuni Shrine has to be judged has a whole and not by part.

Some people are so haunted by thoughts of Hillary. Amazing! The bad smell is going in from the other side, methane gas from the swamp. Dangerous when you have a lawyer who is a hand grenade and will blow the whole place up with Ukraine falls out everywhere.
