Who picks up the bill then? You do realise major sporting events like this usually require a huge amount of public money right?This reminds me of Vote Leave suggesting that the money paid to the EU every week should have been redirected to the NHS which in the end was proved to be a total fallacy. The cost of relocating this match is not down to the Japanese taxpayer!
The reason the EU campaign was ******** was because by leaving the EU we'd be poorer and therefore wouldn't have 350million to spend on the NHS (as an aside even the 350 number was shite) tax revenues would be down. If our membership was a straight cost with zero upside and the EU didn't spend in the UK. Yes you could of redirected the money but it's not that simple.
To relocate a rugby match the resources required in cost have to come from somewhere. Including extensive preplanning and actual execution.
Anyway hopefully the game will go ahead and people will stop caring about a rugby match not being played due to natural disaster.
