一言居士
– A person who has something to say about everything

(The Democratic Party) has betrayed both their promise and the cause of replacing bureaucratic leadership with political leadership, which has lead to the strengthening of bureaucratic leadership. The result of that is the consumption tax increase. Popular will has slapped a big NO on the Democratic party for breaking its promise and trying to force through a consumption tax increase that they did not promise.

The problem is that the public does not want to entrust the government again to the Liberal Democratic Party. The latest public opinion polls regarding the rates of support for the political parties show that the LDP and the DPJ are about even. That’s because the public views the LDP as having reverted to the LDP of old. Now, more than ever, the LDP should return to the starting point of its promise with the people in 2005. That is the course of small government with the privatization of Japan Post as the entrance. Clearly showing their opposition to the DPJ will strengthen the public’s sense of expectation for a return to LDP rule.

– Nakagawa Hidenao, former LDP secretary-general
