Japan's PM snubs son of British POW

Neither the PM or the POW's son were personally involved. It's just another craven self-identified victim in search of compensation. It's been at least 64 years, how long has James McAnulty actually suffered from his father's plight, sorry, McAnulty, no lottery win for you. Get over it.
