I ve seen a bit of Japanese TV, well its the biggest load of rubbish I've ever seen! poor acting poor editing, poor production what is the budget for the TV shows about 5000Yen?And the worst of all is on NHK TV he's a Yankee guy who stands behind this well known Japanese lady whose cooking, and he explains every thing two or three time, like she was on TV once and she said your grate the Daicon and put it in the bowl, then he tells us all what to do again and again, how F*****g condescending is this? is it were so dumb that we don't know 1: how to grate daicon and 2: how to put it in a bowl. Ive never ever seen such rubbish in my life! Producers of TV shows need to come to the UK and see how the professionals do it, just take a look at "blue planet" this was made and narrated by sir R attenbrough, this film went world wide in sales to other countries, you need to spend lots of money on a good show if you don't you end up with cheap shallow day time TV programs.

NathalieB, your right most people would have milked the situation for everything that they could get, rightly or wrongly! possibly get the action on their phone, I would not recommend to try, or surgest blackmail in any way shape or form. but the power of suggestion what could happen IF his wife was to see it

If I remember rightly the USA didn't want to joint the Kyoto agreement because it would mean that they would have to reduce there green house emisions, I still can't get my head around why you need a V8 or V12 8-12 ltr engine in a car when the speed limit is around 55-60 MPH, no wonder they call them gas guzzlers. In fact you can get more BHP out of a small engine with modern technology. So America when are you going to stop dictating to the rest of the world on emissions and come into line?

****The U.S. government hopes Abe will be able to win passage of a series of bills needed to expand Japan’s military role****, Hang on a second, the country is in deep s**t when it comes to the amount of spending and the amount of money coming, to close this deficit you need to make CUT BACKS! spending on the military which needs to be reduced big style!. this is one of the many problems that need to be tackled. Good luck mr Abe,

Has any body thought about and electric style blanket/heater something that can be fixed just underneath the roof tiles so when there is a lot of snow on the roof switch it on for 5 minutes the roof heats up slightly the snow turns to water, the snow slides off the roof, hey presto! then turn the blanket off.

“We cannot rely on high growth but must seek both tax hikes and welfare spending cuts to fix public finances,” said Kazumasa Oguro,
this is a good start you need to get rid of dead wood in the government local councils any silly scheams stop funding, them the Japanese government have got to seriously rain in the spending, its took the UK economy 5 years from the start of the recession to finally getting out of it, its been tough for every one, but we have come out of it fighting and now the UK is ready to start trading and exporting, were in a much better position then ever before, the wasteful spending will not get you trough a recetion, it will only plummit you country into further dept, Greece/ island went bankrupt, so let this be a warning

As Ive said before, is it not time Japan had a sex offenders register like we have in the UK? the offender has to be on the list for as long as the courts hand down, this list informs the police who is on the list and where they are living.
