Shinzo Abe (ex-PM of Japan)

Post by SLSU1966 »

Bad luck. He was said to be a good leader, a friend of Australia. Had a long run in power, eight years? One ex-PM will attend Tokyo for his funeral?

Not very nice at all.
No enticement to enter politics.
Hope our Japanese connections remain strongly in place.

I hope this doesn't herald a return to the 'politics by assassination' of 1930s Japan.
