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 !

Shozaburo Jimi`s comments were as ever taken out of context, so whatever his good intentions were (giving the middle of Okinawa back to the locals) he is out of luck for the next generation or so. As the Chinese sabre rattling is not set to finish any time soon !

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!

**Excellent thoughts, let there be social media in the next elections. if Abenomics can get the youth of Japan off their collective bottoms to vote in their droves all the better, as only 59% bothered to turn out for the latest one.
Carry on with the good work Abe, Mikitani and crew!

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. Carry on the good work young Sir, we expect to see you to continue holding the WBA Bantamweight title for another couple of seasons!

A very tuff call to make, but if they are treated the same way as Lord Pete Rose has been, then these Lords of baseball face a long frustrating wait ahead of them to enter the hallowed arena. To dope or not to dope, brings to mind another era, when Carl Lewis was doing his innocent thing?

Alas today`s policing is not quite as effective as it was, no doubt there are many other cases of this kind ongoing and causing havoc amongst the victims, my heart goes out to the husband. One hopes that this poor lass and her murders horrific deaths will encourage the local constabulary to broaden their outlook on the stalking of both males and females. The knights and I would also like to suggest a return to our more draconian methods of prevention, which requires a quick backhanded slash across the wrist tendons. Tends to stop one from being able to use the more modern forms of communication! Tally-ho......

Methinks that all the Kings horses and all the Kings men from the current government will never put the finances back together again as the current new (latest and greatest) stimulus package is not enough.
Lord Noda and his merry band need to double whats on the table and aim it at the right targets, of which the following are mere suggestions : A coherent plan to down size the current nuclear/carbon mess, the development of reasonably priced alternative energy, boosting the population through paying breeding parents hundreds of thousands not tens of thousands of yens per month, better and free Kresch services for those working parents bringing up the little wretches, a new tax system that taxes one and all, competitive financial services, open competitive gambling including Casinos, a Singapore look-a-like tax free business zone, reinstallation of the stocks for those that dont vote, a vote for the gaijins living for over ten years in Japan, a good hard look at what needs to be done with the Tohoku debauch and perhaps most of all, an end to all current squabbling until the job is done i.e. balanced budget, growing population, growing commercial enterprise, gambling halls and drinking dens full of buxom........errr, too much mead Im afraid, but we await your comments Lord Noda here at Camelot .

Another case for the HR vampires in general to be hung drawn and quartered, in this day and age perhaps a recording of the offensive commands would have helped sway the courts finding. Push on with the case fair damsel, as Prada (made in who knows where) could do with loosing a few pounds !!

Go forth and conquer young lad, but methinks a language and cultural battle royal wilst ensue with possibly no home fort to return to! Also perhaps it would be helpful to mention Nomo, a past knight of great fame in the performed very well stakes?

My knights and I had a little round table discussion on this current hot potato and having quaffed at least a gallon of hot honied mead, Lancelot came up with this very funny joke and I quote thus, "When is an airplane not a helicopter ? When it`s an Osprey". We all had a long guffaw at this incredibly dull joke. But when it comes to war, Lancelot knows what he is doing and recommends that the big boys be left alone to do the job, as they have been doing, since the end of WW2. If such an onerous task is not appreciated, then the big boys should politely leave and let the local knights get on with it !

My knights loved the original movie, clean good fun and lot`s of music. But with Farrell being cast in this
interestingly themed film, the movie is bound to be a flop. The lad (CF) has never quite made it back due to his shocking performance as a practitioner of Greek love in the Alexander debauch!

Excellent news, once he has cleaned up the mess in kingdoms of Osaka/Sakai, he can then move onto the national stage, presuming that he gets up to 30 of his knights past the post at the next election. In the mean time, his wing man might want to tone down his comments on the other parties in the race as he will have
to work with them sooner, rather then later.
