Thought for a cold, cloudy day

The Prime Minister was right on Thursday: the Liberal Democratic Party is in a terrible bind.

I will go out on a limb and make the prediction: the party faces annihilation in the next House of Representatives election.*

If the party is to survive, it must attack the root cause of the nation's current malaise.

Unfortunately, the root cause of Japan's malaise is the LDP.**

* Unlike my last correct election prediction, I promise to get the reasons for the defeat correct too.

** Yes, I know. "But...but that's Koizumism!" So sue me.

Can't sue you for supporting Koizumism...Koizumism is largely right...
