    As always it has to be outside pressure to effect any meaningful change and force the oyaji dinosaurs to grudgingly realise it's 2017. Good to hear some straight talk from Coates.

    Never mind the actual figures - Government will continue to put out forecasts based on their fictional 3% growth figures as per Abenomics manual....meanwhile in the real world....

    Abe has an election coming up this year so he obviously wants to use Trumps visit to Japan to boost his chances just like with Obama last time. Gosh, I wish Trump lets out some twitter blurb that would pour cold water on Abe's parade a little bit. Or wouldn't it be great if Donaldo could meet up and hit it off with Koike....that would catapult her into stratosphere. Bet LDP will do their best to try to keep her meeting up with Trump and steal some spotlight from the dear leader.

    Since Iran decided to dump the US petrodollar the anti Iran rhetoric is rising fast. Just look at what happened to other countries that did the same and found themselves a sudden target of a need for " regime change ". Iran is suddenly a " number 1 terrorist state " and it's people no doubt in need of some freedom " so let's see if we can bomb the crap out of them some time soon once we build an international coalition to legitimate it. Following the textbook to a letter.

    This is the way other countries are also going and / or will be going soon. The golden age is over, cutting medical and retirement benefits will be the norm in the future, no escaping from that. Plan to be either very well off, so the increases don't affect you that much, or poor so you get the benefits. The middle class is the one being screwed more and more.

    Socrateos - agree, but having said as you know in J politics it's quite common for people to ditch their own party to get a tailwind from a popular reformer politician on the rise. Same thing happened when.DPJ was on a roll. Let's hope most of those joining Koike are truly reform minded rather than just interested in easily winning a seat by association. She is smart enough to sort out her ranks undoubtedly, so here is to hoping she will bring true reform first to Tokyo and later nationally. LDP needs to go.

    Let's hope the 'old boys club' in the upper house don't band together to oust her for being a troublemaker. She is a breathe of fresh air after Ishihara (The Godfather).*

    Absolutely agree. of course the old boys are doing their best desperately dig up dirt on her as we speak. She is smart and media savvy though so heopefully she will kick the arrogant LDP oyaji asses come election time.

    Well, with the 2 standard, get out of jail answers for accused white collar types here being either " I don't remember " or " I was drunk " I,ll take a guess that Ishi jiji is gonna go with the former option.

    Posted in: How the decision was made (to sign the purchase contract) should be clarified. Mr Ishihara has given the public the impression that he is trying to evade providing an explanation.

    A bunch of JASRAC of amakudari oyajis came up with a plan how to secure more funds for their bloated salaries. This is absolutely ridiculous. Perhaps US should send a few lawyers over to challenge this , ha....while Trump is being legally challenged on nearly everything daily, the government , J-Inc and entities like JASRAC here are having a field day. ( the Trump comparison is just to make a point , obviously :-)

    Whether you support or oppose him, one thing is clear. Trump sure is a Santa bringing Christmas presents early for the legal profession. Imagine all the lawsuits and legal fees that the next 4 years will bring.

    Since the dear leader weighed intone debate and since Japan needs to save face internationaly, the old kasumigaseki golf boys will indeed be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21 st century. Quite enjoyable to watch actually.

    Yeah...Japan approved around 20 or so refugees last year so it's quite funny when J-people talk about the Trump ban / airport fiasco happening now in the US to be able to remind them how " generous " Japan has been over the years, granting a dozen or two refugee status visas per year. There is no comeback to that.

    I really don't get it. Just what exactly has Abe administration done in the last month or so that deserves a 5% rise in opinion polls? I really can't see anything . Or is it because as the article says most Japanese are so spooked by Trump administration and the way he is portrayed in J media that they suddenly think their own govt. is not so bad despite doing absolutely jack ..?
