No, no, no, no!
(Sound of head pounding on table)
The Liberal Democratic Party's leaders didn't clear the nominations of Tanami Kōji and Nishimura Kiyohiko with the Democratic Party leadership before the 11 a.m. announcement.
(Vocalization. Sounds like "AAaaaaargh!")
I think we can safely say that the Democratic Party is exonerated. Off the hook. In the clear. The failure to name a replacement for the post of Governor of the Bank of Japan is now 100% the fault of the LDP.
(Wiping of the hands gesture)
By not vetting the nominations with the Democratic Party aforehand, the LDP has proven itself incapable of anything but vengeance.
Bloody moronic, near-sighted, knee-biting attack Chihuahuas. Vamos!
Can Japan’s opposition mobilise disaffected voters?
