Nice. Rugby becoming more and more lucrative as they add countries like Japan. My guess will be based in Tokyo for maximum bang for buck.

Seems like a minor issue to me. Especially if he got them when they were much more expensive......

Given the women lost their jobs for handing out fans, i can see why this is being madw a fuss of. but 18 grand in an S&M bar is pretty reasonable. bet this was just drinks and a bit of light banter. would have been more to take a beating.....

Only beneficiaries of this are arms manufacturers. Downside is to be seen in yesterday's events in Ottawa.

Lovely little racy witches and devils and other horror movie fantasy garb. what's not to like?

The obvious solution or response to this is to rain more death and destruction on the Middle East and North Africa....... That'll teach them, eh?

Yes commendable but not worthy of adulation. plenty of folks learn second or third languages and don't get treated like they just discovered the cure for cancer.......

I think that him learning Chinese is ok, but not worthy of adulation. and his wife is apparently very sweet (and definitely good looking). And he is just a geek who caught the zeitgeist, but that doesn';t make him an racle on anything else.....

If he is worth 400 million and the courts go for 50/50 split then this will not set a new record as Berezovsky paid 220 million. sloppy reporting.

Shows why Kerry's silly trips to Indonesia and similar are so futile. time to call time on the "War on Terror" and see if less engagement works better than the current policy of "whack a mole".

Potentially but like many good things it leads to misuse, abuse and silliness.

anyone who thinks that ISIL or any other group of Muslim fanatics would have just chosen to attack Canada if Canada had not joined the US "war on terror" is deluded. and now we will see the usual hypocrisy from all sides. tragedy is some poor sap lies dead (how on earth he was on duty but no bullets is laughable) because of a needless political bad decision.

I'm not a fan of this type of nitpicking to bring her down. Although Abe keeping these women in Cabinet was always a bit of a fan-tasy anyway.

i agree Kerry is a waste of space. sure, he has to be seen to be doing something but he is soooo unconvincing. If they can't stop a steady flow of jihadists from EU countries and Australia how on earth does anyone believe the Indonesian government wil be able to (let alone want to)?
