Quote Of The Day.

A Japanese minister resigns after referring to one of his country's teaching unions as a 'cancer', (very much like ours then). This is apparently not his only gaffe though:

He was clearly struggling with his brief, which includes the promotion of tourism, when he said that the Japanese generally "do not like or desire foreigners".

That's the definition of a political gaffe, accidentally telling the truth.
