Japan: Voting for Change

Diary of A Singaporean Mind comments on the Japanese election result that ended the LDP 54 years of continuous rule. The blogger pointed out that Japanese people had voted for change even though the future remains uncertain.


  • I hope DPJ will also have Internet-friendly politics.

    In Germany politicians are afraid of the Internet and therefore always restrict it more and more. It’s totally overrestricted now and insecure for website owners…

    I read that Japan also considers Internet censorship, just like German politicians decided now…
