July 14 Belfast Telegraph Belfast Northern Ireland on murder of Quinn Brothers for the Sake of our children was a phrase much used in May during the run up to the referendum. Back then the troubles had taken its toll on 257 Young lives. The murder of Brothers Richard Mark Jason Quinn is a tragedy not just for their grieving family but for All of us. How a hand could fill a bottle with petrol Light it throw it into a House where children lie sleeping is beyond most of us. Yet that is what happened on sunday morning. And every morning for a week. Hundreds of people have been burned out intimidated made homeless in the week of the dim Crew siege. And we accepted it. After All no one was seriously Hurt. Until now.

July 14 the times London on Japan a Economy when Ryu Taro Hashimoto became prime minister of Japan 30 months ago he said that he would a go Down in flames if he failed to turn around Japan a moribund Economy. But neither he nor anyone else expected Japan a voters to Light so fierce a Bonfire. In burying Hashimoto it is right to offer some Praise. His foreign policies have been courageous particularly in strengthening the .-Japan Security treaty. But what counts is that he plunged Japan into needless recession. The voters were right to blame him personally a dead right to make their views so Plain that he had no option but to resign. Without Radical action the mess he has made of Japan a Economy could yet drag the world into depression. July 14 la Republica Rome on Japan selections the Leader who loses resigns. On this occasion Japan is to be admired. In a country where Honor even political Honor is significant Ryutaro Hashimoto decided to present his resignation when the results from the ballot boxes became known. This admission of guilt is very rare in politics. But beyond the gesture itself the resignation of Hashimoto is followed by a series of question Marks regarding the continuation of reformist policies in Tokyo. This political uncertainty has alarmed the markets worried the . And Europe. Japan can Only solve its crisis if it understands the meaning of this vote japanese people expect More pervasive reforms to revive the country a Economy. July 14 Tamichi shun Bun Tokyo on Japan selection voters had vented their anger at the failed economic policies of Hashimoto a Cabinet the Liberal democratic party lip. We feel therefore that it is Only fitting that the prime minister the leaders of the lip should resign. The lip has already begun the process of selecting a successor to Hashimoto. A Cabinet would normally be compelled to dissolve the diet hold elections for the House of representatives after such a humiliating setback. But Japan needs to respond immediately to its economic crisis cannot allow a political vacuum to develop. After passing emergency economic financial legislation during the extraordinary diet session the new Cabinet must dissolve the diet hold Early elections in order to win the Confidence of the people. Tile new Cabinet should be Content to manage the economic crisis prepare for the next election. July 15 times of India new Delhi on Japan selection in Ordinary times the fall of yet another japanese prime minister would not be such big news. But these arc not Ordinary times. If Japan fails to recover it will drag much of Asia Down the lube also rattle economics As far afield As Russia Chile Brazil. Thus the world anxiously Waits to see what Concrete Steps or. Ryutaro Hashi Moloy a successor will take to revive the Economy. The options of course Are limited will have to include sweeping Bank reforms a Broad deflationary package. There Are indications or. Hashimoto was beginning to grapple with this reality though the measures he undertook were halfhearted too diffused to instill much Confidence. If his exit has opened up the possibility for change it is Only because voters have demonstrated that mismanagement of the Economy will not go unpunished
