The Abe Administration has announced the new Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) mascot ‘Miminassyi’ (No Ears) reflecting the party’s central strategy of ignoring the voice of the public on major issues such as security legislation and nuclear power.
The new earplug mascot inspired by the much-loved pear from Funabashi city, ‘Funassyi’, has been launched to counter the newly established L.D.Pea Party and their increasingly popular mascot, ‘LD Pea’.
“I won’t listen (Koe wo kikitakunai)”, Miminassyi shouted at the mascot’s launch event outside LDP headquarters, Tokyo.
The alternative L.D.Pea party mascot ‘LD Pea’ who also doubles as an actual candidate for Prime Minister in the next 2018 general election is running on the successful policy platform of “Mame (pea or bean) not Abe – Because anything’s better than Abe’’.
Miminassyi is set to appear on the Fuji Network’s “Viking” TV program next Monday.
