    The PLA tanks will soon be out on the streets of Hong Kong, crushing protesters beneath their tracks as they "restore order". The thieving crooks in Beijing won't allow their power to be challenged by anyone, no matter what agreements they may have signed in the past.

    they were able to identify that a few members of the Cabinet Office unfairly and secretly put in bids for the project

    So who are these people and how have they been punished? It is obvious that the building of the Tokyo Olympic facilities will be a hotbed of bid rigging and corruption, which is why the estimated costs have tripled before a stone has been moved. Now we have politicians and bureaucrats lining their pockets too, yet "journalists" refuse to name them.

    It's not clear how a wristband would have prevented the recent murders. It's better not to visit countries run by misery-guts generals in the first place.

    Is the ability to copy and paste into a terminal really not supported up to now? Windows takes up so many gigabytes yet once you've installed it you still can't do anything useful. No word processor, no spreadsheet, no compiler, no IDE, no scripting languages, no cutting/pasting into a terminal ... What exactly are you paying hundreds of dollars for?

    I'm devastated here; it's like being hit by an earthquake, tsunami and volcanic eruption rolled into one. Without whats-her-name things will never be the same again.

    If you own the CD you can make copies as and when you like and in whatever format you like. Downloads are poor quality and may have all manner of restrictions as to what you can and cannot do with them. It should be a simple matter to offer lossless downloads but the music companies won't do it. Instead, they prefer to complain about people downloading lossless music for free.

    Mind you, a lot of modern pop is awful quality to begin with, so having the CD doesn't necessarily mean the quality is any better.

    I think some sort of federal arrangement is needed where decisions on education, health, transport etc are made in each constituent country and only things like defence and diplomacy are left to the UK parliament. The current situation where each country has a different form of government makes no sense and can no longer be justified.

    As many of the IS fighters are British citizens Cameron should launch air strikes on Bradford and Birmingham to tackle the problem at its source. Innocent people will be killed but Cameron doesn't care about that, otherwise he wouldn't be so keen to bomb other countries.

    It would be stupid to buy AOL; who ever looks at it? Smith only wants to increase the value of his own stockholding before dumping it.

    The airside part of the Haneda international terminal doesn't have much in it and is quite dull. It is clean, efficient and convenient though.

    I think the "purr" Cameron is talking about is the dial tone he heard once the Queen hung up after realising it was Cameron on the phone.

    This is why the government need to hurry up and separate the grid from the dominant electricity suppliers. I would imagine the more solar plants they connect the more stable the supply will be as localised fluctuations will become a smaller fraction of the total renewable supply.

    JeffLee: Apart from large pylons I've never seen power lines above ground in the UK. Maybe you are thinking of telephone cables?

    In Japan putting the cables above ground is done because it is cheap. It looks terrible, but then so do most of the buildings, which are also made of cheap materials. Saving money on aesthetics means more profits to donate to the LDP.

    After the big earthquake a few years ago we were one of the first to have our power restored and the power cables were underground in that area. Having the cables above ground doesn't necessarily mean the power will be restored more quickly, although it's certainly true that access will be easier if they are damaged.

    The Yomiuri is filled with LDP lies and propaganda. Why would anyone pay for that? I want to read newspapers that hold the government to account, instead of just printing whatever statements are issued without question.

    Also, some people seem to think that the only evidence for the existence for Japanese-organised sex slaves are the comments of Seiji Yoshida. They ignore the many other sources and witnesses, desperately trying to maintain the fiction that it never happened. What a pathetic, sorry bunch of people they are.

    It's curious that the same countries that fund and arm IS are now bombing them. The arms manufacturers will be doing well out of it at least.

    The children will soon be back with the mother and then be murdered by the boyfriend. Someone will appear on TV to say it's "regrettable" and we will wait for the next, similar case to occur.

    Globalisation means wages and prices should equalise everywhere. That means big rises in salaries for workers in China, India and other third-world countries. It also means stagnant or falling salaries in developed countries. This is exactly what has been happening over the past 10+ years.

    In theory, workers in the west should benefit from lower prices, but in practice companies use tricks such as IP laws (enacted as a result of company bribes to lawmakers), patent and trade mark laws, to restrict cheap imports from other countries. Thus in the west we have to endure both stagnating salaries and high prices, meaning the benefits of globalisation are skewed towards poorer countries and company executives.

    It's so unfair! Even with their intense training and drug use the Chinese still can't beat Japan. The pollution in China also affects the lungs, but the Chinese coaches can't talk about that without ending up in jail.
