Naked shebu-shebu was OK just do not dance. Hostesbars ok just don't dance, Host bars OK just don't dance. Now we can dance....with in an environment that specifically allows "Dancing" all be it under a regulated lighting law. Can be as corrupt as you can as a politician but still pass a law dictating an allowed measured of light? The madness continues.

Ha ha ha it's not a medieval society. The Goverment stipulate the lights, didn't have lights in 1260. Do not enjoy it to much or they will change the law again in 60 years.

Volcanoes +Nuclear plant, Earthquake +Nuclear plant, Tsunami +Nuclear plant, lack of preparation +Nuclear plants, corruption +Nuclear plants might just be me but other than a very large cash bonus why the hell would you risk it? Then there is the waist that has to go ......where? Does not seem to make sence at all.

Goodness me, are there any politicians related to past politicians who are not on the take. Are there any politicians who are just doing their job?

BBC, ABC all have been reporting the machinations of Japanese Political ruptures a global laughing stock of stories. Perhaps it's best to fall back on cartoon characters to be taken seriously the "Leaders" have dropped the whip, fan, cash and are what they are relatives of previous leaders. That's it genetically destiny.

LDP have dominated pretty much since WW2 if not before, it's their birthright to rule. Nepotism, Corruption and an attitude of complete indifference towards the public are rife. Their shrinking gene pool might be a cause.

This Economic storm has been on the cards for 20 years, and we might be experiencing a squal now but in 5 years the full impact might hit. Lack of good Governance, lack of change, lack of a work force, corruption and a retire system that will fail. Manufacturing goods that now others do cheaper. Other countries also import their energy it's not unusual, Japan's or the Governments insistence on restarting Nuclear has much more to do with "vested" interest.

Fired a gun in a restaurant?..weeks latter killed his girlfriend. 5 years perhaps 8 months? I know South African jails are no picnic but a history of casual/ public misuse of firearms and the killing of his partener would suggest a longer custodial sentence.

Dysfunctional , nepotism, in breeding and a culture of expected tax payers money, nothing will change until these genetically compromised individuals are bread out. Natural selection should do the trick.

Most of us would agree that the current political climate is inbred and narcissistic to the point of absurdity. Japan can never reverse its spiral down until the Government actually cares about the population. Or the voting public start to care where their tax dollars go. Either way the current situation is negative and destructive for Japan. How many corrupt politicians does it take to change a country....1000000s.
