    Can Putin make killing off rivals any more obvious?

    Just reading some other articles about how young Russians were worshiping their idol, wearing T-shirts with his face and with words like khachu putina. Yuck!

    You've got to wonder, if the Philippines wasn't still a third-world country in desperate need of cash, would they actually be so silent about their own suffering during the war.

    Kei owns David Ferrer

    Apparently not.

    Good to see those in their thirties like Federer, Ferrer and Serena (at the AO) still winning titles.

    I know it's William who is on the official visit right now, but wouldn't a much more apt comparison be the Crown Prince of Japan to...the Crown Prince of Wales, William's father, Prince Charles?

    Well, I don't think there'll be much conversation if you paired William with Aiko.

    Prince William got taken to Tsutaya??

    where kids made an animation with the prince as a manga character (with a fuller set of hair). I'd love to see them try that on a member of the Japanese imperial family.

    I thought the locals didn't want more from China.

    Great news! (as I butter my toast with eggs on top)

    You didn't read the part about saturated fats and animal-based foods, did you?

    Amazed nobody's said it yet,

    Why? Not everyone is religious.

    Remember, this is the Daily Mail we're talking about.

    Can we just have a list of ministers who haven't been naughty? It certainly would be shorter.

    If you look at Germany's showing of repentance since the war vs. Japan's showing of repentance since the war, the answer becomes very clear very quickly.

    The problem is that there are so many right-wingers in the government who do not have any regret, and feel that Japan is the victim of WWII.

    And what's also worrying is that hardly anyone in Japan speaks out against this.

    Tessa:

    Asked by a reporter about his receding hairline, she vehemently denied that was a drawback.

    Here we have it, the obligatory hairline remarks! Only Japan and China seem to to do that.

    Tessa, why are you dragging China into this? He hasn't even gone there yet. This was most likely a conversation between two Japanese.

    Tina:

    Gossip rampant for Japan's royals in female magazines. Empress Michiko has become sick many times because of them.

    As interstat says, it wasn't because of the magazines. There was also bullying from her mother-in-law and others around them. To the point where she couldn't speak for a while, literally.

    choi:

    Presumably the reporter asking about William's baldness was Japanese. I don't like the double standard here. That reporter would never be so rude as to ask a similar question about the Japanese royal family to a member of the public.

    Yeah, I'd love to see a Japanese reporter dare ask why the Prince's younger brother had grey hair 20 years ago, but for the past several months, why it's been jet black.

    As for the differences between the two countries' behaviour with respect to their monarchies, people dare ask questions in the UK, eg why Prince Edward was allowed into a top university despite his awful school grades, why Prince Andrew uses tax-payers money to collect airmiles, why some royal members used their status to make secret deals, why the next-in-line had a mistress not long after his wedding, why Prince Phillip is allowed to get away with making racist gaffes, etc. I'd love to see a Panorama-style interview, or for fun, a Japanese Spitting Image.

    Fitter than the average American half her age. And then she spent several hours next day doing an interview for Jonathan Woss and performing several times (minus the cape).

    They will never take into account Crown Prince's remarks. It's against democracy. Crown Prince can influence people, but not the govt.

    I bet you wouldn't have said that had the Prince said the opposite and actually agreed with what Shinz was doing.

    I've come to the point where I give your posts a thumbs-down first and then I read them. No point in going down your post and wasting time having to look up again and click the bad' sign.

    Even in the seventies, he looked like a creep. I never knew what girls saw in him then. Certainly not Bay City Rollers.
