    And so it appears that the general consensus here is that Kearney did not deserve to score more points than Uemura after so many mistakes. And thankfully DeShazo, Slump, Presto, Serrano, and Trevor appear to have witnessed exactly what I saw.

    It is also unfortunate that the overwhelming opinion is positioned alongside a very well-known pro-Korean disliker of all things Japanese who is still permitted to troll on here. Kearney did not deserve to finish above Uemura, plain and simple and based on common sense. Sore loser?? So every time someone expresses an opinion regarding a poor sporting decision (the history of sport is littered with scoring mistakes) then they are immediately labelled a sore loser? Maybe you would give in far too easily and accept a wrong decision, but not me my friend, regardless of any Korean 'sore loser' jibes.

    How on earth did Uemura get less points than Kearney and lose the bronze? Kearney's run was awful and was sliding off the moguls unbalanced. So how could Kearney be awarded more points than Uemura? I get the impression that certain big-name stars are awarded a minimum number of points regardless of their (poor) performance. Watch the run again and then tell me it was worthy of an Olympic bronze medal.

    Why is this not the headline news? And why are no posters interested enough to comment? Sad.

    You won't be a lawyer.

    I guess that makes you wrong for the second time. Never pass judgement without any evidence.

    Kim Jong-Un's dictatorship family have an absolutely appalling human rights record for abuses against their own people. Maybe you should check Amnesty International's site to read some of the horrific stories about life in North Korea.

    And whilst you bang on about freedom of speech, you have given absolutely no consideration of someone with some media influence (Rodman) publicly backing such a regime as if everything there is fine. Fans of Rodman could believe such statements.

    So maybe instead of incorrectly stating that certain posters would never become lawyers, maybe spend some time reading Amnesty's accounts of young children in North Korea, orphaned and left to rot in the street. Or maybe of the whole families sentenced to labour camp jails because of a family members 'crimes'.

    Or I guess you are not going to give any credence to the work that Amnesty International do..?

    Aren't you guys allowing him a freedom of speech? Geez. That's what freedom is all about. He is not hurting anyone. Is he hurting you? You need to grow up.

    That's an interesting quote. You mean to grow up, unlike those desperate orphaned North Korean children left to freeze or starve to death outside in the streets and who won't 'grow up' thanks to the family dictatorship that Rodman is supporting. Grow up, yeah good one.

    I was at Arsenal Spurs and despite Arsenal being without any recognised centre forward (Giroud, Bendtner) and also without Ramsey and Ozil, they outclassed a rejuvenated and in-form (won at United last time) Spurs and were impressive. Time to start taking Arsenal a little more seriously?

    I was fortunate to be at the game yesterday. Very impressed with Everton and if I were an Everton fan I would be more worried about losing their world-class manager Martinez. And that lad on loan from Barcelona is proving to be class. Giroud almost won it at the death but to be fair that would have been harsh on Everton.

    shallots, I did not say that this story is acceptable in any way. But if you have read this news site over the years you would be aware of these headline shock stories about Japanese health care. In a population of 100 million unfortunately mistakes are going to be made. And in my experience the Japanese system is a good one.

    Viking, in Japan I had to undergo a regular over-40's annual mens health check which is a national requirement and free. It is designed to save lives. In the UK they just cant be bothered with such a vital screening. In Tokyo my children had stringent health treatment. In London my children are told not to come into the surgery until the evening. In Tokyo you will always get seen that day. In London you need to make an appointment a couple of days in advance. Population of 100 million (good health service) versus population of 50 million (disgraceful health service).

    Living here in the UK, I have to laugh at the feeble attempts to dirty Japanese medical practice. Try living in London and see how you get on with the NHS in comparison. It's a minor miracle actually getting to see a doctor in the UK, let alone expect perfect treatment. The Japanese health system, which I experienced for 12 years, is fine.

    I am no fan of that brutal North Korean regime. But let's be honest, when a news site relies on a story from a very anti-North Korean agency (ex-defectors) and they themselves only had the 1 unidentified source, then we are falling into the realms of news media influencing. I would rather rely on more solid facts.

    A news headline based on 1 unidentified source, according to a right-wing South Korean group.

    80 according to the headline, read the story and that then becomes 8.

    Another defector-led news site said it had no information of any executions.

    I'm no fan of the North Korean regime, but don't be led astray by media hype.

    Well I have been an Arsenal fan all of my life and I would argue that many Arsenal fans have been brainwashed by Arsene Wenger, not the media.

    He really is the king of excuse making. And why is he under pressure from the media and fans? Because Wenger has not won a single thing for 8 years. And for a top club that is a big failure. I am not sure why is getting so confident. We have only played 3 games and lost the 1st of those. And the 3-0 win at Bayern? Everyone knows that was a dead rubber after Bayern had hammered Arsenal 4-0 in London in the 1st leg. Bayern had nothing to worry about.

    And as for the (lack of) transfer activity despite the bold statements during the summer of a 'warchest'. What an embarrassment. As usual Wenger tries to get quality players on the cheap and by playing poker (not very well) and has lost out on Higuain, Bernard, Gustavo, Cassillas, made a complete mess of Suarez, and is still playing games over Cabaye.

    The fans have only been 'brainwashed' by Wenger's lack of trophies and transfers.

    Oh for goodness sake, get over it. This finished 68 years ago. And why can't the Japanese pay homage to their own shrine to their dead in Japan?

    Walking in to work in central London at 9am this morning, my keitai earthquake alarm goes off (set to an upper 4 in Tokyo). Twice. Freaked out and started e-mailing family in Tokyo. Received panic replies wondering what was going on and thinking there was an earthquake in London...!

    some, and now we are getting to the truth of the matter. Brits certainly can live and work in Krakow or Bucharest, but I am sure you know the opportunities for employment in Krakow or Bucharest in comparison to opportunities in London. A huge difference. Out of all the EU nations the UK must be the outstanding destination for employment opportunities. So this 2 way street has in fact become a 1 lane expressway into the UK with a quiet old country lane leading out of the UK. And what puts even more emphasis on the huge influx into the UK from Europe? Yes that's right, the British social benefits safety net including unemployment benefit and housing benefit.

    It makes me very angry when the Polish foreign minister or the Romanian foreign minster make media comments complaining when the issue of Polish and Romanian immigration into the UK is raised. Instead of trying to support the huge emigration from their countries into the UK, why don't the Polish and Romanian governments do something about the very reasons why their compatriots are leaving in droves, as in lack of employment and lack of social housing and support in Poland and Romania.

    It is not a 2 way street when the opportunities for employment and housing are not available in the other EU nations.

    So British citizens of Indian and Pakistani heritage are not numbered among 'every British citizen'? If a British citizen by birth wants to live in the UK with his or her chosen partner in accordance with the law, how is it 'immigration abuse'?

    cleo, with all due respect, if you do not understand the history of British immigration then it is very difficult for you to argue the point, especially if you do not understand the point.

    Every British citizen should indeed be entitled to marry a spouse of their choice and to reside in the UK without restrictions. And that very fact is not happening in the year 2013 thanks to previous abuses of the immigration policy of the UK including the free Europe zone and the issue regarding Asian family visas.

    A large majority of British citizens with Indian and Pakistani heritage were on a family remit to travel to India and Pakistan and to marry and to bring their spouses to live in the UK. Absolutely no interest in integration with the non-Asian British community and strong family discouragement from marrying outside of this arrangement. This was a huge number of people and automatically gave the right to a whole new family tree to move to the UK.

    Japanese spouses of British citizens do not have a history of sending large numbers of their children to Japan to marry and then return to live in the UK and in turn give UK visa rights to the family of their Japanese spouses. It did not happen.

    The British policy on Asian immigration was a fairly decent one and included rescuing Asians being deported by Idi Amin in Uganda, giving citizenship to Asians who were related to those who fought for the British Army, and assisting the British workforce for manual and low-skilled jobs. But this was abused for the reasons above.

    And so now this current racist government finds it relatively easy to produce statistics to back their racist campaign on stopping foreign spouses from living in the UK. That along with the ridiculous decision to free European immigration to the UK with no caps on numbers.

    Yeah, Jemima Goldsmith, Liz Hurley... See who marries Indians and Pakistanis. But the thing is you nailed the racist logic of the £18,600 per year. The 10% of British workers that are under that "low income level" are mostly of non- white ethnicities.

    You did not get my point. My point is that Japanese spouses of British citizens are struggling to get visas to live in the UK with their spouses and children because of the decades of immigration abuse by others and because of the recent rule on an open Europe. This government do not care what your ethnic background is. If you do not earn enough then you will not be allowed to bring your family back home. There are plenty of Chinese and Arabic millionaires who get a visa without a problem. It is based on wealth.

    Japanese spouses would be superior to Indian spouses ? In real life, the Japanese get in very easily. 50 000 Japanese nationals live in the UK, that's way more than the number of Brits in Japan..

    Japanese spouses have not cheated the UK visa system for years and years. Japanese spouses do not send their children home to Japan to marry and bring Japanese spouses back to the UK. Japanese spouses are absolutely minute in comparison to the immigration figures of Indian and Pakistani families coming in to the UK. And no, the Japanese no longer get in to the UK very easily.

    Every British citizen should have a human right to bring their children and foreign spouse to live in the UK regardless of income. But the government should have put a stop to the flow of immigration abuse from India and Pakistan by British citizens of Indian and Pakistani heritage.
