Aso meets Obama

BBC News link

Oh, dear. How embarrassing. First off, the President doesn’t even remember the PM’s name, does he? NOT that I blame the President for it; politicians of their stature should possess some degree of personality, surely? Well, that Aso person clearly doesn’t, so why would/should anyone remember his name?

Btw, doesn’t the name “Aso” spell dangerously close to “arse”? It's also one letter different to "aho" which means "an idiot" in Japanese. :p

As for (what’s there of) Aso’s “English,” again;- embarrassing. If you can’t even manage to reach the full-stop, DON’T BOTHER.

I said this elsewhere on this site but here is what my former English teacher said:

“If you learn a new language late in your life, what counts is how solid you are in your mother tongue.”

This is ever-more true in this case.

As we all know, Aso’s Japanese isn’t that solid. Alas!






♪Let it snow!



Here are some photos from two Sundays ago when it snowed heavily in the whole of the U.K., and it was no exception here in London.
