I'm using a Windows PC, when I try to look at it I get a message that says:

How very curious. I apologise to TWT for ever doubting him. I shall have to try it from my PC(s) when I get home this eve.

More curiously, I've just tried again - and when the page opens I see the article for about 1 second before it switches to the page saying give us your money to continue.

Have a Windows PC. It opened for about 5 seconds then went to the 'Show me your money' page.

Feckem!

This will be as a result of a cookie - allowing you a one-off free access then asking for money.

If you can be bothered to find the site address then search for the cookie under the site name and then delete it you should have reset the counter to zero and be able to read your first view(s) without intrusion.
Just checked (and deleted 'afr.com' cookies) and now I can access and read the article (previously blocked).

Hokkaido? Looxury! I regularly lay over in Incheon. Always dreading that early sunrise!

The rotund Un must be rather confident that there is not going to be any shankin and blastin if he is still testing missiles irrespective if they work or not.

I wonder if this weekend all sides will start to walk this back. No good options at all.

It is being reported (by the Beeb) that this missile 'did not leave North Korean territory'.

Just lighting the fuse on one of these things is an act of international defiance.


Must be having fuel supply problems, though.


(Those artillery muzzle flashes reminded me of corned black powder made with sulphur, charcoal and urine crystals.)

Will we see a spectacular firework display on May 1st by the Stalinists and Maoists to celebrate the International Workers Holiday . Or will the new ex commies billionaires realize what they stand to lose if they do not call their NK lap dog to heel .


It may well be all over by Star Wars Day , May the fourth, be with you

I wonder if somebody has hacked into the missile safety circuits, if there are any.

I would imagine their attitude is that if it goes haywire after launch then wiping out a few local villages doesn't really matter.

Does Kim Jong Un attend launches personally ?
Perhaps he's in danger from an imperialist inspired "apparent own goal"??
Be lucky
