    Xiaomi and other Chinese makers cannot sell in the US without attracting umpteen frivolous "patent infringement" court cases.

    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.

    Japan is like a communist state sometimes, with bureaucrats deciding production quotas without regard to demand. Eliminate the tariff on butter and let people import it freely. The shortage will no longer be a problem. Sack all the bureaucrats who work in the department of butter production and use the money saved to cut taxes.

    Another glorious victory for Abenomics as the economy plunges into depression. Declining real wages, a 3% consumption tax increase, higher prices for fuel and food imports and a shrinking population combine to crush demand and lower GDP and it's all thanks to Mr Abe.

    It's not much of a record on which to stand for re-election, but I'm sure the unthinking Japanese people will vote him back in regardless. After all, he is the son or grandson of a politician and that's all that matters in this country.

    Sanctions ought to target the crook Putin's personal fortune, obtained from corruption and bribery. Use the money to arm the Ukrainians and help them defend their country.

    Removing her music from Spotify will most likely increase free downloads rather than sales. It will be interesting to see if there is a bump in sales after this move.

    No chance: Abe shies away from taking on vested interests every time. No bold decision making can be expected from him, despite all his guff to the contrary.

    I very often see people walking in the road, even when a perfectly good pavement exists. They are not crossing the road either, just wandering along in the middle of the road oblivious to everything. It's people of all ages too, not just the elderly. The budget deficit could be eliminated if all the illegal, road-related activities were punished with large fines.

    Abe has said many times that he would wait until the GDP figures were published before making a decision about the consumption tax, but it seems he has already decided to take the easy way out and postpone the increase until he has left office. This shows him up for the dishonest, opportunistic charlatan that he is.

    Abenomics has failed and the man it is named after is also a failure. He shirked every tough decision and all we got were the usual LDP spending and waste. Yet the people will vote this clown back in again. Amazing.

    Abe is a waste of space. He is unable to make any tough decisions and he will postpone the next rise in the consumption tax until some time after he has left office, 100% guaranteed.

    What happened to all Abe's talk about needing to raise the tax in order to secure social security and pension revenues? Is he now going to leave them unfunded? Let's hope some "journalists" have the courage to ask.

    And have they fixed the problem with the unconstitutional constituency boundaries? If not, Abe should be charged with contempt of court.

    A delay in raising the consumption tax would be good for me, given that we have just been told our salaries will be flat for the next three years. It probably won't be good for the fiscally incontinent government, whose answer to everything is to spend more money building stuff.
