"Extremely flippant" control of Fukushima politics!
(Contrôle "extrêmement désinvolte" de la politique sur Fukushima)
Not so in control actually. In the new 185th Lower House session special committees, the Parliament MPs committee overseeing the work of the nuclear energy safety commission 原子力問題調査特別委員会 and nuclear related issues, is to disappear. If confirmed and if no MP is eager to impose rigorous Parliament control's tools on the monitoring of the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, then what a big surprise. Seen as an added outrage by the Parliamentary opposition.
Fukushima is on everyone and global security radar screens, here especially with the nuclear refugees/evacuees… and abroad with the safety risks imposed on Japan and its neighbouring countries such as China, Korean peninsula, the Asia Pacific nations and the Asian seas community.

"Abe was short on explaining to the Diet what the government is going to do, now that "it (not Tepco) is in full charge". Abe reiterated that the government will play a major role in addressing the water problem (including taxpayers money potential financial assistance for the utility) not leaving the task to the Tepco's utility alone.
