I hope that's a message from the Empress to the Household to tell them to stop hinting about Naruhito divorcing Masako and finding himself a wife to breed sons.

I thought the IHA was behind those rumours. Can't remember where I read it, though.

I'm sure they're not considering reforms (at least for themselves); that sort of hidebound upper-class bureaucrat never does. It's always everyboy else who needs to change. It seems to me that...

Something tells me the dinosaurs aren't going to be impressed, particularly with worldwide feeling running against the American involvement in nation building in Iraq at present, so that they can...

Well, it was probably the military leaders who had the final say, but no doubt it was the IHA rather than the Emperor giving the lead from the palace.

The link that Stacy provided was really...

Interesting article. Thanks for posting!

It sounds as though, far from protecting the monarchy, the dinosaurs at IHA are turning it into a total irrelevance as far as the majority of the Japanese...

Well, it's an awful way to do it, but if this finally creates a public-opinion backlash against the IHA system that's basically keeping the imperial family in luxurious enslavement, that'll at least...

It's being discussed on the Cp Masako thread, if you have a look there.

Sad situation, isn't it?

Apparently it does exist.

I think the notion that an empress wouldn't work because nobody suitable would want to marry an empress is rather ironic, given the track record of Michiko and Masako. Doesn't exactly seem to be a...

Well, unfortunately this isn't exactly a surprise. I was wondering how long it would take for the dinosaurs to decide that the best thing to do, if Naruhito hasn't got sons and Akishino and Kiko seem...
