Here’s my snap reaction to Prime Minister Kan’s 7:30PM speech to mark the passing of two weeks since the earthquake and tsunami.
Speech: Somber to the point of flat and boring, designed mostly to make sure that he touched on all the important points.
Q&A: Four questions from the media about the Fukushima end game, the escalation in the government evacuation recommendations, the discrepancy between the overseas reaction and the government’s own (20-39km vs. 80km), and four stock, non sequitur answers.
I think that the print media is going to pan it. Kan definitely does not have what it takes to front a band IYKWIAS.
