Deep (pan) thoughts on patriotic duty
You've gotta love economic meltdown Japanese style. Not only do you not have to work overtime (and if you're really lucky, not work at all) but the Government is now paying you ¥12,000 - close to 100 quid - just for being you. And that includes us foreigners too! (see here - Foreigners of Japan - Get your FREE MONEY!!!). This is called taking bold, urgent action on the economy. It is not a bribe to vote for the LDP, nor is it too little too late, or too much too soon. See, that 100 quid that could have been pooled together and targetted on, for example, a decent pizza restaurant in downtown Abiko, providing pizza for the homeless and jobs for the hungry, instead will have an amazing galvanising effect on the economy. Our Man is planning to galvanise the local economy tonight by blowing it all behind the bar. Don't thank Our Man, he's just doing his patriotic duty.
