It seems that the Machimura Faction, the nest from out of which sprung the four prime ministers preceding Prime Minister Asō Tarō (namely Mori Yoshirō, Koizumi Jun'ichirō, Abe Shinzō and Fukuda Yasuo) finds itself somewhat ticked off at the LDP's acquiescence to Asō's decision to delay the House of Representatives election indefinitely.
"If the election is not going to be held this year," the Machimurans ask, "then why the heck was it necessary for Fukuda Yasuo to resign?"
Oooh! Guess that means there's one more set of campers (the Democrats and other members of the opposition, the New Kōmeitō) that has been made unhappy by the delay of the elections!
Not that any of them can do anything to ease their pain...
Still a long way to go for China’s new normal
