Regarding the Dec. 23 front-page article “Abe pauses on Senkakus postings” (concerning Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s decision not to station officials on the Senkaku Islands to avoid jeopardizing ties with China): Once again we see the lies by politicians, and once again we see the stupidity of the Japanese public in believing them.
I moved here from Australia because I was tired of the nonstop lies and moneymaking scams of Australian politicians. They have increased taxes every few months, brought in new taxes, cut spending on roads, police and hospitals — claiming there was no money — and then given themselves fat pay raises. The Australian public is paying much higher fees for power, gas and water than they did when I left the country in 2003.
