    According to Abenomics, this inflation will help the Japanese economic recovery and should therefore be welcomed. Y6900 to stand in a queue all day is still a bargain: in the US you have to pay $99 to stand in a queue all day.

    He cannot have needed the money as he was able to return it. If he really needed it he would have spent it.

    I wish they would have clear pricing. Whenever I look at DoCoMo there are so many different fees it's difficult to work out what you would actually pay.

    The ANA fuel surcharge should disappear when the aviation fuel price drops below $60 per barrel. Unlike some other airlines there is a correlation between the fuel surcharge and the fuel price. I don't expect fares to change much, but I've got lots of miles ready to book some free flights.

    The government should make clear that anyone who travels to Syria and other middle-eastern dumps is on their own and can expect no help should they be captured.

    I expect this new agency will be as effective as the labour standards offices around the country that routinely fail to make employers comply with the law on overtime payments. After all, it's hardly likely that overseas slave labour will get better treatment than Japanese workers, is it?

    These "training" programs should be required to show what skills workers can be expected to learn and how long it will take for them to acquire them. Once the workers have been trained they should be sent home. If it only takes a day or so to learn the job the "trainees" should be on their way home within a month.

    It all sounds ludicrously complex and specifically designed to provide jobs for as many hangers-on as possible.

    The Thai army and its unelected dictatorship should also stay out of Thai politics.

    The paper this morning showed Skymark as having made large profits in 2012 and a small loss in 2013. I'm surprised that they are suddenly in trouble, given that fuel prices are falling. I think this bankruptcy move is a ruse to avoid paying Airbus any of the cancellation penalty.

    I don't believe Saudi Arabia has conducted any airstrikes against its ISIS allies. Instead, they have been sending them money.

    How is it Obama can find the time to meet a despot, but can't manage to make it to the free speech demonstration in Paris?

    The Japanese government has made no effort to talk directly to ISIS. NHK are able to contact them, but Abe and his mates, with their staged 1 am "urgent" meeting, can't seem to manage it. It's the same as the "top priority" North Korea hostage negotiations, where months and years go by with no meetings at all.

    One erroneous article and these people are up in arms. They ignore the evidence of the sex slaves themselves, whilst evidence held by the Japanese government has been destroyed or kept secret. By launching this suit these people have lost any credibility they might have had and will become a laughing stock around the world. They should learn some shame and humility.

    "The Japanese military complied with international law and maintained high moral standards, with the world's strictest military discipline"

    Are they serious? Were the Nanjing massacre and Unit 731 activities in accordance with international law? What kind of "moral standards" permit Japanese soldiers to carry out experiments on humans?

    More sanctions should be imposed on the crook Putin and Russia. Crush the Russian economy.

    The point of the internet is to eliminate borders and let consumers buy from wherever they like. But in the case of media we still find country restrictions and other nonsense imposed by content producers. Whatever happened to free trade there?

    Finally the airlines admit that the "fuel surcharge" is nothing but a scam. At least if they eliminate the term "fuel surcharge" it will make tickets booked using miles much cheaper.

    The supreme court should be interpreting the constitution, not Abe.

    Next, Abe will be "reinterpreting" 1 + 1 to be equal to 3.

    Saudi Arabian money has been used to support ISIS, the same group that just killed a Japanese citizen.

    It's funny how in the UK Starbucks never seem to make any profit. I wonder why they keep opening stores when they are not making money.
