So this is how the LDP wins. So Sunday's election is invalid? They will hold another election? Or the article has been posted, swept under the carpet and in 72 hours everyone will forget it.

Afraid they would be fired if they got caught with alcohol in their system. Now that's stupid! What do they think would happen if hundreds were killed because of alcohol in their system?

Of course LDP is going to take it. Can't believe this is even a topic of discussion. BTW, I've been here 33 years and don't need to be a psychic to know the future regarding politics in Japan.

TEPCO, Abe, this is not your typical clean up after a typhoon. It's a NUCLEAR DISASTER!!!! The worst in the history of this planet. Treat it as such please.

So I guess previous reports in the news are incorrect. The towns people don't have a choice on the building/restart of nuclear power plants.

I don't believe 65% are interested in the election in December. So far, based on my polls, 100% of the people I asked think snap election is not necessary and not interested. But then again look at the news source in this article............Yomiyuri.

Interesting. I search other news sources on this incident and every news source I found has the exact same article, word for word. Talk about controlling the media! Seems like one one person is reporting the news to every news source.

Seriously people, stop using your cellphone while on the move. Some idiot texting or playing a game, on a bicycle almost ran over my dog. I almost snapped my dog's neck pulling him out of the way. The jerk just looked up for a second like I had done something wrong and continued on his merry way. Well, the nice guy in me is seriously being challenged and really don't know how many more near misses I can take. So to you Ill mannered pedestrian beware. Don't expect me to jump out of your way anymore.

When will they learn. The only way the manager at the cafe my wife works at can take a day off is when he checks himself into a hospital. The company knows this but really doesn't care. They always have a manager on backup. My wife has been offer the position and she just laugh at them and of course said no thanks.
