Australia kicked him out. Canada don’t want him. Britain don’t want him. Japan are probably going to let him waste money on a flight and turn him back at the airport…and I’m sure he will be running out of places to travel to at a fast rate by the looks of things.
Loser extraordinaire Julien Blanc could have saved a lot of time by joining Japanichiban Friend Finder and would not have been banned form entering so many countries.
The guy is a caveman. Hitting girls over the head and dragging them back to your cave is so pre-historic Julien.
Pick-up artists? What is that?
Why bother making an ass of yourself unless you are a jackass.
His website claims he can show how to “make girls BEG to sleep with you after SHORT-CIRCUITING their emotional and logical mind”.
In one video posted online by his organisation, Mr Blanc says: “In Tokyo, if you’re a white male, you can do what you want. I’m just romping through the streets, just grabbing girls’ heads.”
More than 150,000 people signed a petition demanding action by Mrs May to prevent his events taking place.
The petition was started on the Change.org website by a woman using the pseudonym Caroline Charles.
She said in a statement: “I’m very pleased that we have achieved the outcome we wanted.
“That the petition garnered so much attention in such a short period of time only highlights the everyday, ongoing relevance of sexism and misogyny. “
Mr Blanc has previously been refused entry to Australia and Brazil.
The Home Office spokesman said: “The Home Secretary has the power to exclude an individual if she considers that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good or if their exclusion is justified on public policy grounds.
“It is longstanding practice that we do not comment on individual exclusion cases unless they are made public by the excluded individual.
“This Home Secretary has excluded more foreign nationals on the grounds of unacceptable behaviour than any before her.”

Japanichiban is a big fan of this charity and with one of our favorite Tokyo musicians putting his good looks on the line we had to throw a donation in to the ring to support this great cause.
Fighters are fighting to make sure the Facility Dog Program is with patients and families every step of the way. They are fighting for children who are fighting for life in hospitals across Japan. They are fighting to keep the programs in the hospitals which encourage children, families, hospitals and communities to keep fighting. To stay strong. To shine on.
￥50000 from Japanichiban…but it’s not enough.
Our man Andy Mackinlay is going to do some damage!!!
Click on the share buttons too….this deserves immediate attention as time is running out!

World Bank: India Overtakes Japan as World’s Third Largest Economy
In purchasing power parity (PPP) terms, India is now the world’s third largest economy — surpassing Japan.

In a sliver of good economic news during an Indian election that is widely focused on economic growth, the World Bank announced in a report on Tuesday that India overtook Japan as the world’s third largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity (PPP). According to the World Bank’s International Comparison Program (ICP) data, India holds a 6.4 percent share of global GDP on a PPP basis. The United States remains in first place with a 17.1 percent share and China trails it at 14.9 percent. Japan, while still the world’s third largest economy in nominal terms, holds a 4.8 percent share of global wealth.
The ICP’s data is from 2011. Overall, India went from 10th place in 2005 to 3rd place in 2011. ”The United States remained the world’s largest economy, but it was closely followed by China when measured using PPPs. India was now the world’s third largest economy, moving ahead of Japan,” the report noted. “Because economies estimate their GDP at national price levels and in national currencies, those GDPs are not comparable. To be compared, they must be valued at a common price level and expressed in a common currency,” the report explains, outlining the justification for a PPP-based comparative look at world GDPs. In exchange rate terms– that is, when all the national currencies are converted into U.S. dollars at current exchange rates– the Indian economy remains about a third of Japan’s in size, comparable to the Russian or Canadian GDPs.
PPP is particularly important in the study of poverty levels and quality of life across countries as it adjusts for price changes across national economies. PPP, for example, is used by the World Bank in its poverty threshold of $1.25 per day per person. Given that a dollar can buy more in some countries and less in others, PPP-based comparative analyses allow for comparisons between economies. For India, the bad news is that its GDP per captia in PPP terms still ranks the country 127 out 199 — a reminder that the country has much to do in combating poverty. ”The largest economies were not the richest, as shown in the ranking of GDP per capita. The middle-in-come economies with large economies also had large populations, setting the stage for continued growth,” the report noted.
The World Bank’s report has been widely featured in the Indian media and is a morale-improving piece of news for a country that has been besieged by high inflation, stagnant growth, corruption, and other economic ills in the past year. Narendra Modi, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s candidate for prime minister in the ongoing election and the front-runner, rose to popularity primarily because voters see him as a candidate capable of transforming India’s economy for the better. Modi has frequently held up his (debatable) economic achievements in his home state of Gujarat, where he was chief minister, and has claimed that he would transfer that model of governance to India as a whole.
