THE DEFENCE MINISTER of Japan announced today that he fully supports tracking senior defence officials 24/7.
The idea was sparked after it was realised that a top defence ministry bloke had accepted a ton of gifts, including about 200 golf trips from an arms dealer. Monitoring other officials will be carried out via satellite, checking where GPS phone-kitted officials are at all times.
It's, unsurprisingly, not a popular idea among the targeted: anonymous accounts have been published from officials, whinging about lack of privacy.
Top dog Defence Minister, Shigeru Ishiba, opened the floor to debate, saying "I want those who are opposed to explain why they are against the idea." We guess because they really like golf.
There's been no official opposition so far, says Ishiba. µ
