    That's not an octagon. In any case, an octagon is a 2D shape, whereas the tablet is 3D.

    I think it's right to ban someone who appears to be inciting violence against women from entering Japan or elsewhere. Freedom of speech doesn't usually include the right to call for certain groups to be attacked. Blanc can keep his sordid activities in the USA.

    Look at that doofus Kuroda: out of his depth and blundering around without a clue. Our salaries will be static for the next three years. There will be no extra demand from us: if prices go up the quantity sold will fall, it's as simple as that.

    The cornerstone is a 2% inflation target designed to reverse price drops that gave consumers an incentive to delay purchases knowing that goods would be cheaper down the road

    I often see this statement and it's nonsense. If it's true, why do so many people buy things on credit, paying interest, when they could save up and buy the same thing for cash later? People want things now, not in several years time.

    The real reason the LDP don't like deflation is it exposes their incontinent spending policies. The debt just mounts up instead of being inflated away and there is no way to repay it.

    Now that Abenomics has devalued the Yen the price of fuel has gone up. Yet the other day Abe was talking about the need to soften the impact of higher fuel prices. His own policies have resulted in the price rises he wants and now he seems to be saying he doesn't want the price rise after all. Abe clearly has no idea what he is doing and lacks any understanding of economics. He is utterly useless as a prime minister, yet the Japanese people will vote him back in to lead them to penury.

    I also went to a pachinko place once, not long after arriving here. I spent Y100 and won Y3000, which was promptly invested in beer. I'm not tempted to go back.

    As for it not being gambling: if there is a possibility to receive back more than you spend, then it's gambling. Using a cash substitute (pachinko balls) doesn't change that. If I set up a casino using chips to represent cash I will be closed down straight away. Why is pachinko treated differently?

    The chart should be based on what people have spent money on. I expect record companies will set up thousands of computers to stream whatever current track they are promoting and boost its position in the charts. Plus, they will collect royalites from the streamers whilst they do so.

    Ten years. People get less than that for killing their children. It just goes to show that if you embarass the Japanese police and the judicial system by exposing their corruption and heavy-handed interrogation / torture, they will act as vindictively as possible.

    Who would be foolish enough to lend money to the government at 1.4% when the same government has an inflation target of 2%? Step forward Mr Kuroda of the BOJ. Nobody else is daft enough to lock in an almost guaranteed loss over 40 years.

    Watching the interminable parade of clowns on the news last night, one of them was saying that his was the only party that had the will to pass much-needed reforms. Exactly what these reforms were he didn't say, but given that his party is fielding less than 100 candidates there is no way he will ever get to pass anything, except guff.

    The rest of them were just as hopeless. Why is it that the DPJ can only find candidates for half of the single seat constituencies? If they can't even organise 300 candidates for an election what does that say about their ability to run the country? Looking at their MPs, quality and ability do not form part of the selection process so what is stopping them finding another 150 people from the 100,000,000 or so they have to choose from? If they were organising a booze up in a brewery they wouldn't be able to find the beer.

    Then Abe was on spouting incoherent nonsense. Something like "we need an election because we have a very good social security system".

    Abe will win by default, not because he is any good, but because the opposition are utterly useless.

    Seiyu were recently selling British beer at prices lower than in the UK.

    There was talk about reforming the daft beer duty rules, but I guess that's been abandoned now the election has been called.

    I hope that the LDP lose enough seats that they no longer have 2/3 of the total. That would stop Abe from changing the constitution and would be one good thing to come out of this big waste of time and money election.

    It's unfortunate that the opposition are utterly useless, self-centred buffoons. Pick two at random and you will find three different views on any given matter.

    It's time other countries stood up to the US and its increasingly large "fines" levied on their banks. This could be done by charging a tax on US financial institutions of equal amount to the "fines" imposed by the US.

    Calling an election now is about the only bold thing Abe has done. With falling real wages and an economy in recession he doesn't have much to boast about.

    However, Abe has made sure not to fix the unconstitutional electoral boundaries, giving the LDP an unfair advantage going into the election.

    So running your own people over with tanks isn't using force? Xi must have a different definition of "force" to everyone else.

    But if a central government in Kiev want to start a genocide of Russian population in Donbass - this is not allowed

    I take it only the crook Putin is allowed to commit genocide then, i.e. in Chechnya? I expect big, "tough" Putin will be posing with his shirt off right now for some more "manly" photos, but everyone knows he is a coward. Too scared to allow free elections in Russia and too scared to sit in the G20 meeting and listen to criticism.

    A stimulus, eh? There's a surprise. All the LDP ever do is spend money "stimulating" the economy and it doesn't work. How about raising the minimum wage and enforcing overtime payments? That would put money into people's pockets, which they would spend.
