well, she was already a cabinet member... is this a step up? more high-profile I suppose, but whether or not the 5-ringed-circus happens this year... how will she stand after August I wonder.

the UK wanted special provisions when they tried and tried again to become a member of the Common Market (forerunner of the EU).... then, years later, they wanted out and still wanted special provisions.... and now they are out, but, as cracaphat (top post) points out, they are still trying to call the shots.... just get on with it Britain, and focus on what should be the priorities.... then everyone can relax on the sofa, feet up, a good old British pint in hand, favourite LP of Churchill's speeches on the radiogram, and bask in your newly-regained 'sovereignty'. Aah.... perfect! (^_-)

does having a female director mean men will eschew 'the male gaze' when watching any future nude scenes? how about lesbians getting off on ogling her, would that be okay? how about 'the trans gaze'?

re: Tōkyō.... maybe the relatively low numbers are because every man and his dog is down here on the Bōsō for the holidays, acting as though Covid doesn't exist..... I'm expecting our first cases here in a couple of weeks' time.

....first case showed up on the 12th or 13th.... as of the 18th, 8 cases..... still, we had a very good run till now....
