Regarding the June 11 Kyodo article “Kan to visit disaster zone, solicit opinions“: Naoto Kan is a harder worker than any of the Diet members who oppose his leadership and want him to resign as prime minister. They constantly complain about Kan’s actions, but what have they done to improve the lives of victims of the March 11 earthquake-tsunami and the subsequent crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant?

They must not waste any more time. They keep saying that we should think of the victims’ lives first, but they themselves don’t act in the interest of Japan or in the interest of the Tohoku-Pacific victims, who must be very disappointed by now.

I don’t think anything will change when Kan is replaced as prime minister. What Diet members should concentrate on is uniting to do their best to make people’s lives better.
