Japan's is getting hit by two Typhoons.
By, Uwe Paschen.
Japan’s double Typhoon.
Yesterday, we had our long awaited elections here and it was also the beginning of a Typhoon in Chiba and Tokyo prefecture.
Some see this as an omen and it could be seen as such in deed. After all the outgoing and defeated Government of the Liberal Democratic Party has been in power here for over 50 years now, tow Generation of almost continual centre right government and now a left is in power with the newly elected Democratic Party of Japan who did not only win these election. More over, they did so with a landslide, allowing them to build a strong majority government since they have 304 seats and their strongest opposition the Liberals now hold only 114 seats.
Other such as the Communist, Socialist and Nationalist hold the remaining 19 seats. Giving the Democratic Party of Japan full power, like no government had for some time now.
Ironically at the same time, since the election that is, we have been pounded by another Typhoon, this one a weather related one though, so strong that the JR Narita Line and JR Kashima Line had to stop operating their trains. Traffic has come to stand still as well and some homes have already lost power. The first reports of damages are coming in and more may follow, since this is a powerful Typhoon.
I just hope that this one will end well and leave us with good news once gone. So far, the people from our community centre see this as a good omen and any one that knows Japanese history and mythology may see why.
Those events may make a great Kabuki play as well; after all, they fit perfectly into their rim.
Former Prime Minister Shinzō Abe as well as former Prime Mister Yasuo Fukuda where both re-elected as Members of Parliament even though they resigned wile they where Prime Minister. As for our outgoing Prime Minister Taro Aso, he just announced his resignation since his party lost the election to the Democratic Party of Japan.
Now that our Political Typhoon has set in with Japan's opposition party winning a historic elections in an apparent landslide Yesterday, we still have to deal with the Meteorological Typhoon that is still pounding us hard with its might.
More will most likely follow, lets hope it will be good news on both ends, the Political as well as the Meteorological one.
