I was wondering as it seems hard left party leaders such as Jeremy Corbyn, John O'Donnell and 'wee Burnie' are publishing their tax returns will we see the 'Dear Leaders' submission to The Democratic People's Revenue Department any time soon?

A few kilo's of scrap metal is more. than likely a small fortune to a NK citizen.

I notice that every report says the test failed but how no one seems to know.

If that isn't a secret, I guess we shall be told by the North Korean news agency, along with them actually admitting that the missile failed.

I don't think the North Koreans have bothered to mention even the failure, let alone the cause of the failure ... yet.

There have been no on-the-scene images furnished, of a fat little tyrant, red-faced, screaming "Take them out and shoot them, all of them!" with notepads and pencils flying in all directions. Why would that be, John?

Having someone executed with an anti-aircraft gun does at least indicate a creative imaginative side. Oh, the good old days.

I suspect that if it had been a roaring success the little fat wun would have probably let us know by know.

WRT N.K., a friend loaned me a book written by a (quite cute!) lady escaped from that hole with her family.

The Girl with Seven Names: A North Korean Defector's Story
by Hyeonseo Lee

I literally devoured it, and highly recommend it to anyone to get a better grasp of the reality about that abomination called Democratic People's Republic etc etc.

The People's Republic of China (Communist Party run)
The German Democratic Republic (Communist Dictatorship East Germany to the young 'uns)
The Democratic Republic of North Korea (Dictatorship)

Note any trend here?

There are worse things to swallow whole! I know a fellow who took in the whole history of the Korean War as told by Kim Il Sung that way, when, although it agreed with him, it seems to have left him a little bit off!

Yeah, they're all about as 'Democratic' as the NSDAP were 'Socialist'.

Nothing to Envy is also a good read, although not 100% factual. The book does get it right about who started the Korean War, though.

North Korea fires ballistic missile from a submarine in the Sea of Japan.


North Korea 'fires submarine-launched ballistic missile'.
