    "The kids in the spelling bee should only be AMERICAN"

    Why not turn off the TV, computer and gadgets and enter your own child then? It won't be easy, given that he/she will have inherited their parents' IQ.

    FIFA is totally corrupt, with president Blatter leading the way. The man has no shame at all and you can be sure that, far from co-operating with investigators, Blatter has his shredder working overtime.

    The shortage of butter is because everyone wants Christmas cakes.

    Oops: that was the excuse they came up with in December. The real reason is the bureaucrats in charge of butter supply are useless. They should be fired and people allowed to import butter freely. This would also save money and with the government claiming to be keen on such savings it's a win-win situation for all. The sacked bureaucrats can get part time jobs in Lawson, if they can manage to pass the interview.

    Even including regular employees, wages across all sectors have come down under Abenomics in real terms, down 2.7% in 2014 from the previous year

    Someone tell Abe, as he keeps claiming wages have risen. NHK (controlled by Abe's mates) also reports wages have risen "in large companies", whilst ignoring the government data that show average wages are still falling.

    Overtime payments have risen, but Abe plans to abolish them.

    I don't fancy eating food that comes in a bucket. How long before they introduce the "family trough"?

    When I worked in a Japanese company my boss was always grumbling about overtime payments and saying he wished the law would be changed.

    He should be happy now the LDP have made the change. The result will not be fewer working hours, but more. Incomes will fall and the economy will suffer. On the other hand, profits will rise and corporate donations to the LDP will increase.

    How are they going to find assets held overseas? Will they try to make people declare them?

    Most of my assets are already overseas where the Japanese tax agency can't find them.

    Cameron has full control over non-EU immigration but has done nothing over the past five years. It seems he will continue to do nothing, judging by his waffle about illegal immigration.

    Professor Seiji Shioda of Hoshi University in Tokyo, who did the work, refuted any suggestion it could be tainted by politics

    Professor Shioda has a company, the Shioda Life Science Institute, which lists "dementia remedies" as one of its products. Thus Professor Shioda has a financial interest in claiming that balenine might mitigate the effect of dementia.

    I cannot find the research published anywhere and if it is published I hope Professor Shioda's financial interests are declared, otherwise his university should investigate him for unethical conduct. Interestingly, Professor Shioda has published a paper on the negative effects of methylmercury, which is also present in whale meat.

    The Saudi bombing campaign is illegal and no different from Putin's aggression in Ukraine. Where are the sanctions on Saudi Arabia?

    I think the vote will be held next year and Cameron will obtain very few, if any concessions from the EU. Still, I hope and believe that the UK will vote to remain in the EU. Most of the problems in the UK are the fault of the UK government, not the EU.

    In the worst case I might have to buy a place in Scotland and claim to be Scottish. There is no chance Scotland would leave the EU, no matter what people in England might choose to do.

    The quote from Abe doesn't make any sense (like most of the things he says). If he wants to make contract work run for unlimited periods there will be no end to the contract term and no option to transition to a full-time employee.

    His claim to want to "strengthen measures to prevent companies from being able to keep an employee stuck in the confines of temporary work indefinitely" appears to contradict the intent of his new regulations.

    If the contract term is unlimited the worker should be entitled to the same benefits (salary, bonus, holiday, pension etc.) as a normal employee.

    If they really want better teachers they need to raise the bar to entry. This would likely require increasing salaries to attract the best people. Instead, they have been lowering salaries and introducing Saturday schooling. I certainly wouldn't apply under the current working conditions.

    Given that the LDP is proposing this standard test I expect it will be full of questions on historical matters that require answers that conform to the government's distorted view of history, i.e. the only way to pass will be to write lies instead of facts.

    Japanese aquariums are free to continue obtaining dolphins from Taiji. If they choose to do this they must accept expulsion from WAZA: you can't insist on joining a club if you refuse to obey the rules. Moaning and whining about this demonstrates immaturity: such people should not be keeping dolphins.

    Abe's solution is not to force the companies to pay overtime, as required by law, but to abolish mandatory overtime payments. Problem solved. The LDP will benefit from more company donations as a result.

    EU leaders have already said they won't negotiate a new treaty with Cameron. If he actually holds the EU referendum he will have nothing new to offer. I notice the Conservatives are now saying they want to stop people from the EU moving to the UK to claim benefits. But if that is happening it's because useless UK politicians allow it, not because the EU insists on it.

    The boy had bruises and burns but "nothing out of the ordinary" was found? Children might have the occasional bruise, but if there are also burns (plural) it suggests something is wrong.

    But the Japanese authorities clearly believe that bruises, burns and being chained to a post are nothing to worry about. Who will take responsibility when this boy is murdered by his parents? It won't be "regrettable", but inexcusable.

    I'm surprised by the result. I think Miliband blew it when he said he didn't think Labour overspent during their last year in government. Nobody could have any faith in his ability to manage the finances after he said that. He also wanted to make "islamophobia" a crime, i.e. criticism of islam would be outlawed. Anyone advocating such nonsense is not fit to govern.
