The very word 'politician' is enough to send tremors down the spine of many Egyptians these days. Which is why I don't feel the least bit guilty in taking pleasure at Japanese politician Ryutaro Nonomura's rather spectacular public apology after it was discovered that he had misusing ¥3 million (around 200,000LE) of public funds.
Naturally, Twitter has been in overdrive and Nonomura has become the latest en vogue subject of internet memes. Outstanding.
