    Ah samwatters. In your view, just because the Saudis are blinkered enough not to allow churches in their land then we should all follow suit. Ever thought of being a good role model and learning from others mistakes? You know, rising above it and all that.

    You clearly said that there are plenty of Islamic nations in the world for muslims to live in. A big back-pedal now though eh. After I reminded you that if we organised the demographics back to the original lands of religion then there would be a mass Christian/ Catholic traffic jam on the road back to Israel. Huge amount of back-pedalling.

    No room for "you" in "our" country. According to this new story we are talking about Melbourne. Belonging to the Native Aborigines. Not too far from Indonesia and Sumatra. Your country? Yeah good one.

    Islam is not a race therefore there is no racism occuring. As far as people claiming Muslims only wanting a place to practice their religion, I say there are more than a enough Islamic countries to chose from. In response to those who say those countries are not nice places to live I wil say that the reason for those places being so awful is Islam. People wondering why other countries are reluctant to import Islam into their country should consider these points.

    A mature educated nation is one which allows the practice of any religion. Christianity and Catholicism began in Bethlehem/ Nazareth/ Jerusalem. In your opinion we (white/ western/ anglo saxon) should maybe return to our homeland in the middle east..

    Islam people live in Islam countries, Christians live in Christian coutries, Buddhists live in Buddhist countries. That is the key to peace. Stupid thing to mix them in the same country.

    So according to your (blinkered) hypothesis thats a huge number of Christian return tickets to the current state of Israel please..

    And let's be honest here. We are not talking Germans, French and Swiss flocking to my homeland. It is East Europeans who will work for less and collectively drag down the standard of living for those in the UK even though those immigrants may well be raising their own living standards comparative with where they came from.

    Yes let's be honest here. Of the 333,000 immigrants as at December 2015, 47,000 were from the 'EU8' nations - 1st stage East Europe nations including Poland. And 58,000 from 'EU2' nations - Romania and Bulgaria. Compared to 79,000 of 'EU15' nations - your Germans, French and Swiss (who you claim would not be flocking to the UK). So despite the claim above, the "higher standard" Europeans number (79,000) was 75% of the "lower standard" European numbers (105,000).

    In 2014 the 'higher standard' Europeans number was 86% of the 'lower standard' European immigrants.

    The highest proportion of immigrants by far were the non-EU nations at 188,000. Now these nationalities have really strict rules on visa applications - minimum salaries/ no easy benefits/ very expensive visa costs.

    Dont be fooled by gossip and right-wing scaremongering. The government is running down public services in the UK, not East Europeans.

    We have been fed misinformation and lies over the economics of this increase. You are supposed to benefit from such a boost in the labour force. The government has lied about the effect this is having on the health service and other public services. Instead of boosting the budget of public services to match the workforce (and in turn benefitting from the increase in tax income and consumer spending) the government use high immigration as an excuse for the failing public services. These services are failing because the government have slashed the public services budgets. Meanwhile they are happy to quietly take the increase in tax income and consumer spending.

    Take heed leaders of the world when you visit Japan: the leaders claim it is for one thing, but it's really to try and force their values on you, TELL you what you should think and what you should want to see and do, and claim it is all 'selfless generosity and sacrifice' and whatever buzz words they like to say 'omotenashi' means. Clearly, it also means they will put you on the spot and lie about what they will discuss.

    You mean just like when Obama went to Egypt in the disguise of an official visit and then actually made a speech criticising his hosts over democracy? Or Obama's very recent trip to Vietnam to lift an arms embargo which turned into another speech criticising his hosts about political freedom? Just replace the word 'Japan' with 'the US' in the comment above and there is no difference.

    the rape in Okinawa is none other than the fault of the man, a FORMER US marine, and if anything the Japanese government (they allowed him to stay under a SOFA visa or whatever despite him having retired from the military).

    Wow. A murder of a human being is now seen as a rape? And now its the fault of the Japanese??

    when in reality not only is he using the same tech as nuclear weapons to power the nation

    Using nuclear "energy" for power and using nuclear "science" for weapons are two very different things. One nation (Japan) uses it to heat and light its population. The other nation (USA) used it to obliterate 200,000 humans.

    I would argue that at least Man You are proactive in sensing that a potentially better manager is on the market (Jose) and that they would lose out to another club if they did not act. At Arsenal the board have missed out on 'potentially' getting Klopp, Guardiola, and now Mourihno just to wait for Wenger to see out his contract, despite not winning anything this season. By the time Wenger goes there would be nobody decent to manage and Wenger has done "a Fergie" by ensuring that nobody decent will be available to come in and do a better job.

    The idol industry in Japan bears no resemblance whatsoever to the likes of Beyonce, Rhianna etc.

    These girl idols in Japan are never older than 23 years old and the preference is for something like a 16 year old. A child. Successful groups such as AKB even don school uniforms.

    In Japan the emphasis is on innocence and youth. These otaku followers are never younger than 29 or so. The agencies positively encourage close encounters between the idols and their fans with handshaking events.

    The cocktail of ingredients is frightening, such as witnessed recently.

    Raises the question over her management agency. If she had one. If she did then where is the security? She walked to the event from the station?

    Learning from Tomita on Thursday that she planned to appear at an idol event on Saturday, officers at the Musashino police station asked the police in Koganei to respond if they receive an emergency call on the matter.

    Absolute muppets. Yet again a woman is badly injured thanks to police inaction despite going to them for help.

    Respond if they receive an emergency call?? So the police here don't immediately respond to emergency calls?!

    Jim, not blasphemous at all. Spurs deserved to finish 2nd. But just to clarify the Arsenal fans 'celebrations' yesterday. They weren't celebrations at all and it was all in humour. We've had a really poor season and everyone was feeling very disillusioned with it all. We were expecting Spurs to finish above us for the first time in 20 years, they were playing a team already relegated, who then went down to 10 men, and Spurs still messed it up! It was unbelievable. How we stole 2nd on the last day was daylight robbery. So I wouldn't describe it as celebrations, but much more like comedy. We were celebrating Spurs slapstick routine, and not Wenger or even the team achieving anything.

    Thanks for your explanation Strangerland. From your point of view one needs to drop atomic bombs on civilians in order to defeat a nation that caused war crimes.

    Nobody is condoning what the Japanese imperial army did. But I find it very difficult to comprehend the logic of chasing one (Asian) nation for apologies for war crimes, yet accepting another (western) nation dropping atomic bombs on people.

    The Japanese could use exactly the same argument that you have. That they did what they did in order to respond to stop the Americans.

    Your 'explanation' in not acceptable.

    Heres the scenario:-

    Japan committed horrific war crimes and rape, in order, in their view, to win their part of WWII.

    The US dropped 2 atomic bombs on civilian cities causing horrific casualties, in order, in their view, to win their part of WWII.

    Japan has since been severely criticised and chased constantly to provide annual apologies for their part.

    Nobody seems too bothered to chase the US for annual apologies for their part and the US seems very unwilling to do so anyway.

    Someone please explain the double standards.?

    The UK Labour Party is not an antisemitic party. Dont believe the Conservative-spun British press. Two idiot members have made idiotic comments and were swiftly dealt with by the Labour Party. Livingstone was immediately taken to task by a member of his own party after his stupid comment. I didnt see any concerned Conservatives until after it hit the press.

    Remember. The British Labour Party has always represented minorities and the working class and its membership reflects this. As opposed to the white privileged membership of the Conservative party.

    And also remember. The previous leader of the Labour Party was Jewish.

    I know Sadiq Khan through his previous profession as a human rights lawyer. Aren't we better off with a human rights lawyer in charge instead of an old member of the Bullingdon privilege bully club?

    I know the Brits will get all in a tizzy for me saying this but could there be a more anti-climactic way to win a championship? backing into the championship as you sit at home watching your closest competitor play to a thrilling 2-2 draw. Thank god this could never happen in North American sports where we have no draws and people figured out years ago that if you pay good money to watch a sports event you ought to see a winner and loser decided at the very least. greatest sports story of all time? hardly

    What a sad, sour grapes post. Anti-climax? This is the greatest team sports story for years. You see, a season championship in the UK is all about the best team over that season. Its not a cup knockout competition. I think you really dont understand that the premier league title is won by the best team over 38 games.

    Let me teach you because you clearly do not understand the rules of association football. You can draw a game. Yes thats right. Each team gets 1 point each for a draw. You can also win (3 points) and lose (0 points).

    THANK GOD IN THE UK AND EUROPE AND SOUTH AMERICA THE FAVOURITE SPORT (FOOTBALL) IN THOSE COUNTRIES HAS A CHAMPIONSHIP WON BY THE BEST TEAM OVER THAT SEASON AND NOT WON IN A PLAYOFF JUST FOR TV MONEY.

    Backing into a championship? What does that mean anyway? To truly appreciate a championship season you need to truly appreciate the art of going to an away game and fighting for a draw against a big money team in their own yard. Until you understand that you truly know nothing about a season championship.
