    If only the Saudis would attack IS with such enthusiasm. The reason they don't, of course, is because they support IS and their beheadings of opponents.

    These things are installed in the UK, although I've only seen them on trunk roads. They force people to keep to the speed limit over long stretches of road by measuring the time taken to travel e.g. one mile. I've often wondered why they don't use them at entrances and exits to motorways too.

    I still think the biggest contribution to solving the Japanese deficit would be red light cameras + Y100000 fines. Some of the junctions around here would yield Y100,000,000 per day.

    While deflation may sound good for Japanese consumers, it means people tend to put off buying because they do not expect prices to rise and hope they might even get goods cheaper down the line.

    Where is the evidence for this? The prices of mobile phones and computers has been falling for years, yet people queue up to buy the latest models. They could wait a few months and buy the same thing for less, but they don't. Most people are not prepared to wait for lower prices, hence the demand for credit.

    Abenomics means we have to pay more for food and utilities, leaving less to spend on manufactured goods. It's not surprising that factory output has fallen, although it will no doubt be a surprise to the clueless Abe and Kuroda.

    Notice the distinct lack of Saudi airstrikes against ISIS. At first we were told Saudi Arabia was joining the action against ISIS, but that was lies. The Saudis continue to support ISIS and other extremists in the region.

    Japan should move the clocks forward one hour permanently. The country is in the wrong time zone.

    The costs of the cleanup and the amount wasted should be shown as a separate item on TEPCO bills,

    e.g. Fukushima Cleanup Y1500 (of which Y300 was wasted)

    It might lead TEPCO customers to put pressure on the company, or maybe not. Shouganai.

    "The order is invalid, significantly and clearly not legal," Suga said.

    The Japanese government spent a long time trying to obtain the permission of the former governor to start reclamation work. At that time the Japanese government accepted the authority of the governor over whether the work could start, or not. Eventually, the former governor gave the go ahead (despite claiming he wouldn't when he was elected).

    Now, slippery Suga seems to be saying that the governor has no authority at all and the Japanese government will ignore him. What has changed? If the governor's permission is not needed, why spend so long seeking it? Suga needs to give some clear answers instead of abusing those who disagree with the LDP.

    "Considering the importance Japanese culture puts on aesthetic beauty"

    I must have missed that: there is precious little aesthetic beauty around here.

    The reason the power lines are above ground is because of the cheapskate power companies. More profits for them = more bribes for politicians.

    It makes little difference if you buy food in kilograms or pounds, or beer in pints or litres: people easily get used to one unit or the other. However, I wouldn't fancy using those units for scientific work; once you start multiplying e.g. feet and pounds together things become tricky. What is 3'7'' times 27lb13oz, for example? Much easier to use m and kg in that case.

    Whilst we're at it, perhaps the Greeks would like to pay reparations and compensation for the Greco-Turkish war? Or should Greek aggression be treated differently for some incoherent reason?

    This suggests a money-making ruse:

    1) Somehow get ICANN to allow the use of, e.g. *.paedophile, *.pervert etc.

    2) Rake in the cash as companies and celebrities register domains to prevent their misuse.

    Abe and the LDP are all about spending money like a drunken sailor: they will never be able to control themselves. If the half-wit Kuroda thinks otherwise he is even more of an idiot.

    More nonsense from the Japanese "justice" system. Why should the family of the man receive anything? He wasn't earning an income (unless they were all living off his pension), so they haven't had any financial loss as a result of his death. Plus the cause of death, pneumonia, is in no way related to the broken leg resulting from the accident.

    The family need to prove that the broken leg led to the mans death from pneumonia 18 months later. Given his age I'd say that's impossible. For the courts to rule in favour of the family is absurd; Japanese judges appear to be a bunch of idiots.

    It's clearly dangerous to climb Mt Fuji. I propose the government build a wall around the mountain, about 1 km down from the summit. That will prevent people from getting too close to the top and being injured by flying rocks.

    The videos of the tsunami going over a sea wall and destroying the town behind it are proof that sea walls are ineffective, yet the LDP weasels still insist on wasting billions building more of them.

    Sea walls will make flooding worse as multiple tsunamis will each dump water behind the wall, which is then blocked from returning to the sea.

    There was no debate or discussion about the construction of these walls: they are being built whether you like it or not. How is it they can build a sea wall with no problem, but after four years they haven't found a place to put the Fukushima radioactive waste? Rail lines are still out of use and people are still living in temporary housing. Why does a useless sea wall get priority over them?

    A world cup that was awarded to Qatar solely as a result of bribery, held in stadia built by slave labour at the cost of hundreds of lives. Held in a country that financially supports groups who behead and immolate anyone they don't like the look of. The crook Sepp Blatter should be ashamed of himself, but he's more interested in lining his pockets.
