Japan can't pay the ransom... As horrible as it feels to say that, $200m will buy an awful lot of weapons to kill even more people with.

I just hope everyone on here has private pension schemes... I have to pay into the national scheme, but made sure to get a "real" one to run alongside it. No point risking my future for the sake of a relatively small amount per month.

The QPR defence was atrocious. United played well, but it wasn't a particularly challenging match for them.

Japan needs to rethink the sales tax strategy - having a "blanket tax" that is the same for everything just hurts people at the bottom.
There is no need to increase tax on things like food and diapers - just aim it at luxury goods.
