Drunk Nakagawa (Japanese Finance Minister) Video

For Japan and Prime Minister Aso, it was a big embarrassment today that the Finance Minister Nakagawa resigned after acting drunk at the G-7 news conference.

He slurred his speech, was sleepy eyed, very disoriented and at one point, mistakenly responded to a question on interest rates that was intended for the governor of the Bank of Japan, who was seated to his left.

He will be replaced by Economy Minister Yosano.

Here is a video of Nakagawa’s performance. It is in Japanese, but just watch his facial expressions. Nakagawa is on the left, BoJ Governor Shirakawa is on the right.
