Laid-off hotel workers clash with police
Check out the above video and link to a TV report about what happened on Sunday when rumours spread of the imminent closure of a hotel in central Tokyo - police had to seize the place from staff desperate to keep working there. Seems like an awful lot of staff for one hotel, and how did the TV cameras get inside the place before it all kicked off? But no matter. There are some uncomfortable questions for Our Glorious leaders to answer, allow Our Man to summarise:
- The LDP can no longer rely on the public's long encouraged political apathy. Do these folks look apathetic to you?
- Do you really think these folk will be fooled by a ￥12,000 (100 quid) bribe to vote for you?
- Don't you think you should admit business as usual ain't gonna do it this time?
- Haven't you heard? The secret's out. You are not worthy of the people's trust.
