Alas the DPJ Lords and Ladies are destined to suffer a heavy blow on this coming weekend and with that, theyre abject reign jester-dom will come crashing down amongst what is left of them on Monday the 22nd.
No doubt they will have their regrets, as in hindsight what they could have been achieved and didnt will rue many a come back for the Lords/Ladies that were in power. Including the likes of Lord Kan and the bottom dwelling Noda, they will probably never make it onto the top floor ever again.

It will be interesting to listen to one of those fallen Lords represent himself in a new light this week, as he sets forth on his latest journey. Lord (cat) Ozawa has nine lives, but will he live through this next election ? As for the Lords/Ladies of the LDP-NK, we hope that they will use their newly granted power to better the Kingdom of Japan and pull this once dazzling economy back onto the world stage.

Terrific match, whatever you say about the Lions Knights, they bring everything to the table. Looking forward to the next jousting session and I hope that the officials get it right next time on scrum and breakdown rulings.
Clearly Pollock was out of his depth and Joubert should be put in charge of the next test.

Incredible story and told with a brittle battle worn Uighur voice, this lovely Queen in waiting will unfortunately get no where until they discover oil, rare earth, minerals etc, etc. The Lords of NATO are too busy looking after numerous other battles which concern oil or mineral wealth in one form or the other, good luck fair Lady !!

A solid Canadian team of Lords gave Japanese Samurais a hard match and for a long period had it won, but for some excellent defending by the Japanese Samurais. The result was a fair one, as Canada to be specific have not been the force that they were in the last World Cup in NZ. Previous to this loss they were soundly beaten by a battle weakened (due to I&B Lions duty) Ireland. Lord Eddy Jones has been a delight to watch as he urges his mentors on to do greater things, maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel ?

A battle lost, but the war is still to be won. The overseas playing Blue Samurais have the confidence to go up against any team, however the Japan based players lack this quality and have been seen to cave in under pressure. We thought that this was one of the main reasons for the big loss to Brazil, thus the more overseas games these players take part in, the better their battle field skills will become and the better the SBs will be.
Of course it doesnt help when you are fighting major battles from the off, it would have been a little easier if
they had played in the same group as Spain. The Knights still see Spain as being the out right champions, so let`s see how they fare against the gallant Lords of Tahiti ?

It would be a very wise move for the grand leaders of the Western Empire to re-read their history books and to study in detail the mistakes that were made and are still being made in the Kindoms of Antioch,Acre, Jerusalem
Tripoli. Tens of thousands of lives wasted, fortunes spent on ruinous wars and eventually all for no real gain and later major headaches. Today you have Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Israel all about to turn into a blood bath with the Western Empire once again getting involved with far too few resources (we wont even go into the Afghani mess). So either you go in fully armed with half a million knights including every form of modern support or you stay away, because the war will come west should ye meddle around carelessly. For London, Paris, Rome and New York all host large communities of Saladins family.

The knights have not written off the Blue Samurai Lords just yet and feel that there is a win or two left in them
after their defeat to the multi time champions of the world. Recent matches have all been played by exhausted players coming from Europe to play and fly away, however with this FC being played over a couple of weeks (lots of team practise time) the BLLs will step up their game and hopefully prove the nay-sayers wrong.
In the mean good luck to the Knights of Tahiti and our gold is on the Spanish Knights whom have a full team
of proven world beaters.****

Excellent chance for the brave Knights of Japan to beat a fine, but much depleted team of Welch Knights. Sir Eddie doing a great job of coaching the national CB team, however he might be drinking far too much saki if he things that the lads can step up into the top 10 within the next two years!

History repeats herself throughout the centuries, in that there has always been camp followers, whom have been paid to carry out a very profitable natural function. Be not naive or afraid, but the oldest or nearly occupation in the wold is what? Please, that ye visit the streets of Clark Base, Okinawa City, Sumvik Road Bankok, Hochiminlo, Newtown Circus, that to this very day offer up a panorama of ex-American occupation places to go for after battle relieve. HK and Korea have similar place to go, as does Tokyo and Osaka. Hashimotto maybe vocal in his well founded defence of what is true, but the Knights and I can only say that we have been there !

Gentlemen, this is just the beginning with Central Africa up next, followed by problems in Spanish Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Somalia. So unless the the larger EU and American Lords put together some form of coherent Islamic policy you will see the Egyptians/Arabians supplying men and arms to re-unite all of north Africa under the Islamic flag. Syria is nothing but a divorce waiting to happen, it`s what goes on in Jordan, Lebanon and Israel (our old hunting grounds) that worries us here in Camelot ?

A clarion call from the depressed, poorly funded, old and needy, social services involved in all areas of human care need to be reformed here in Japan as soon as is possible. This particular case is no doubt the tip of the iceberg and for the the Mother to kill her own flesh and blood is major slap on the face to all involved. So please wake up social services and get out there to prevent any more such tragedies and if you don`t have enough funding (severely cut by the last government) then go and get it from the new one. The Knights will remain vigilant on this very frightening form of case during this difficult time of year, be neighbourly and make it a point to help those in need!

The Knights all admire the fighting style of the young Sir Kameda, he shows absolutely no fear in the face of very aggressive and experienced opponents. One of the the very rare Japanese fighters to take on and beat the Golden Triangle of Mexico, Thailand and the Philippines.
