Today there was in Japan for a change, a political earthquake – not entirely unexpected, but surprisingly, since everything took place at a time. Two Ministers, more specifically ministers, announced her resignation today. As there would be:
小 渕 優 子 Yuko conservation, Ex-Minister of Economic Affairs, stumbled over a donation scandal, because they abused party donations for wrong purposes. This is, it seems, and Japan Volkssport bei Politikern. More specifically, the Diskrepenz grew between revenue and expenditure in their constituency to around 350,000 Euro an – Money, in which it is not clear, as it was actually used.
松 島 み ど り Midori Matsushima, Ex-Justizministerin, however resigned due to a violation of the election law. That law prohibits gifts with cash advantages of any kind to (potential) Voter. Nevertheless held and still holds the minister distributing disposable trays, printed with her likeness, to about 20’000 Visitors Voksfestes for a harmless, because the subjects “hardly worth”. She stressed the resignation also specifically, that her resignation was not an admission of guilt, but that they so want to avert harm to the Government. A noble gesture, almost.
Matsushima had me already very impressed. She is an avid supporter of the death penalty and is, that one should be quite pork in Japanese Gefängnisssen as Muslim prisoners – Japanese prisoners we interviewed not so well, whether they prefer bread or rice. Accordingly, this is “reverse discrimination”. That it less about culinary preference goes as issues of faith, is sausage. Pork sausage, of course.
Abe had brought both ministers just before a good month to the Cabinet – almost as a part of the message “Look here, we are modern and participate in many (5) Women in government”. At a press conference specifically eingeraumten Abe took over today but inevitably the responsibility, since he has waved through the Personnel. Responsibility? And. Consequences? Of course not. Here, Abe was one of the politicians, shouted the loudest for new elections, when the then-ruling Democrats tried to her scandals.
Were now all scandals? Of course not. For much more scandalous, I think the behavior of 山谷 え り 子 Eriko Yamatani, Special Representative for the Department kidnapping (Japanese citizens by North Korea). It keeps the comfort women issue for a lie and was announced in September it, that they are representatives of the 在 特 会 Zaitokukai (an ultra National Association, that has set it apart mainly for generations living in Japan Koreans) met. And let photographed together. When asked about this, she replied – vor Reportern – that they did not know, with whom they met there. When reporters asked nachbohrten and, whether they consider the activities of Zaitokukai critical (those finally run through the streets with posters, on which sayings are as “Ob gute Koreaner oder böse Koreaner – kill them all!”¹), She rejected an opinion. And three times.
Is it ignorance? Or just audacity? Sure, German politicians, for example, afford to pay for one or the other big thing. But to Japanese politicians they can not match in terms of audacity by far.
