Rugby finally nudges its way onto mainstream TV..if only for one game, still good news. I'm just not sure why Japan would want everybody to be able to watch their team get completely creamed. I hope Newzealand gives them no quarter.

The sad thing is that the Olympics would be dealt with infinitely better than the whole Tohoku recovery/Fukushima debacle. I think its high time that those in power took responsibility for the more pressing matters this country faces.

Of course he's going to claim its the best idea since sliced bread. He's hardly going to throw his feet up on the desk, slouch in his chair and exclaim "Nope..rubbish..total clap. I made it up while taking a dump. I have no idea what I'm doing..but dont tell anybody!" now is he. Politicians..just overindulged managerial staff.
