    Other Japanese officials still want Australia to explain why they lost so they can learn from the painful and bewildering experience.

    how many foreign companies have lost business chances in Japan due to the "bewildering" way the Japanese companies do business?? Welcome to the club boys....

    it would be nice to see Disney come up with something new and original for a change... sorry, forgot - its far easier to milk past hits and other cultures stories than actually being creative nowadays.....

    the main reason the French got this is because they promised to do as much of the building etc in South Australia - a place where many government ship building contracts have been done in the past. With the closure of the car industry in the same State over the next couple of years, the national government couldn't afford to lose more local support with a federal election coming up, It's that simple....

    I found this movie to be really irritating - style over substance like much of this directors heavy handed work...

    @Nostromo,

    Say what you want but you can`t deny that he is a very successful individual. Dropping the bankruptcy line has no weight to it.

    You are right. I should have used the word failures instead of bankruptcy.... it's harder to disassociate your self with failures as opposed to bankruptcy which you can walk away from in the States

    Quite a few jealous left wingers on here that believe working hard and being successful is a crime.

    I assume you are referring to Trump... if so you need to take a proper look at his business record .. you will discover that his business "prowess" has resulted in many more bankruptcies than actual successes. Most of the businesses with the name Trump are in name only - he isn't actually involved.... for some reason the name Trump carries some sort of bombastic cache....

    Priebus, who met Trump two weeks ago at RNC headquarters in Washington, said the delegate-selection rules have been in place for a year and it is the responsibility of each campaign to understand them.

    poor, poor Donald.... always happy to dish it out but can't handle it when things don't go his way....

    On Tuesday, Trump backed away from a loyalty pledge he signed in September promising to support the party’s eventual nominee and not to run an independent campaign for the White House.

    flip flop, flip flop.... flop.....

    I wonder how these people feel about Abe's plan to double the number of international tourists over the next 15 years?? Not too pleased I'd imagine....

    The Democratic party is THE most hypocrite party out there. As usual, the ONLY thing they are about is the next election and staying in power. The people be damned.

    as opposed to the interests of the 1% which the Republicans represent....

    and where will all these tourists stay Mr. Abe??.... accommodation in all the major cities is nearly full most of the time while the dated hotels in regional areas will not be able to cater for non Japanese clients... they can only handle the dry squid munching, shochu guzzling, karoake crooning Japanese oyaji crowd....

    Barbour said Trump “doesn’t deserve to be president,” but said he could ultimately support him if he “can convince me that he’s presidential material.”

    that's going to be a long wait....

    U.N. urges Japan to ban sexual exploitation of schoolgirls

    fat chance of that happening.... apart from the profits to be made, watch Japan raise the "but its our culture and foreigners don't understand" excuse to avoid the issue....

    for nearly 5 years the Japanese government and businesses have been pushing to get more foreign tourists to visit Japan - 20 million by 2020 or some other slogan.... it seems that no thought has gone into this now that the tourists are coming - no parking, no new hotels or accommodation and increasing charges to everyone.. beats me how they will handle the Olympics.... I think they call it 'Kaizen' - making it up as you go along....
