Posted in: 5 years after Brexit vote, divided UK still feels shockwaves See in context

I love The Sun's picture. It accurately predicts the apocalyptic fireball of Brexit spreading across Britain.

Or does it represent the sunrise of hope dawning over a soon-to-be independent Scotland?

Posted in: Toshiba drops 2 board member candidates ahead of shareholder meeting See in context

Since the report was released four outside directors have issued a statement saying that they will not support all candidates.

Slight mistranslation. "They will not support all candidates" suggests that they will support some, but not all, of them.

It should read "will not support any" (they will oppose all).

Posted in: Toshiba colluded with ministry to undermine shareholders, probe finds See in context

If you're pulling tricks to deprive shareholders of their rights, you're engaging in theft.

I understand the concern about scary foreign capital, but if you don't want to give control, don't go public in the first place, or let the J Govt buy up a load of your stock. Don't go about it in a dishonest way.

Posted in: Family of dead Sri Lankan woman unconvinced by Nagoya immigration account See in context

I had a feeling that Kazuaki would chip in with his "well actually..." 'splaining comment, but he outdid himself this time.

Even if she was serving a sentence as a convicted murderer, her death still wouldn't have been "her fault".
