FOLK SINGERS IN PARLIAMENT: There were elections in Japan last weekend, and amongst those winning their first seats is Shokichi Kina, who, for the sake of argument, we'll call Japan's Billy Bragg. Kina represents the opposition Democratic Party, although we suspect his campaign may have deviated slightly from that of his colleagues:

"Trade all weapons for instruments. Turn all military bases into flower gardens. Let's have festivals, not war."

Clearly the words of someone who's never been to a muddy Glastonbury.
