At last, at last, the Japanese Imperial Household and Parliament are dragging themselves into the dawn of the 20th century! Note I don't say the 21st century. That would be too much to ask!

Good heavens! They are moving at the rate of a snail, but a young snail!  At this rate the Emperor might be able to vacate the throne by maybe next year!

I broke this off into its own thread, although related to the abdication of Emperor Akihito, it really highlights a ridiculous dilemma.... one that was under consideration in the UK when Kate was pregnant with George. Because, lets face it...

Sad to say that the IHA would still consider the only child of CP Nahurito, Princess Aiko as not being a worthy candidate to succeed him.
