Lone Wolf - 一匹狼


On the closing day of Diet in Lower House, Yoshimi Watanabe the former Minister of Administrative Reform cast his vote to support opposing party’s proposal to immediately dissolve the Diet. He had been struggling all alone to push the issue of reforming administration forward as the Minister, but what the present Prime Minister Aso practically did was to throw each effort from being established to the trash altogether, and thus his towering rage was obvious. His straightforward action was quite digestible to public and it looked so cool and even cooler than Makiko Tanaka who once commented that ex-Prime Minister Koizumi was actually placing his foot on her skirt while telling her to go forward. This small ripple may be interesting to watch.
