Thoughts of the Great Leader

This document has recently become available and shows that The Great Leader was not as stupid as many maintain. More correspondence available shows that the USSR were totally opposed to providing him with the capacity for manufacturing nuclear weapons.

Report on the Visit by Erich Honecker to the DPRK,
18-21 October 1986
[Source: Foundation Archive of the Parties and Mass Organizations in the Federal
Archive [Berlin] (SAPMO-BA), DY 30, 2460. Translated by Grace Leonard.
Full text was published in CWHIP Bulletin 14/15, Issue 14/15, pp. 65-68]
[in the course of a far-ranging discussion with GDR leader Erich Honecker, whom Kim Il
Sung referred to as his “best friend,” Kim stated]

"As to the situation in South Korea, Comrade Kim Il Sung stated that the anti- American mood has grown even more among the population, and in religious circles.
But no rapid change in relations among the powers is to be expected.The US rejected proposals made by the DPRK for reducing tensions on the Korean peninsula because it [would] lose its reason for remaining in South Korea if the initiatives were realized.

Comrade Kim Il Sung affirmed that the DPRK does not intend to attack SouthKorea, nor could it. More than 1,000 US nuclear warheads are stored in South Korea,ostensibly for defense, and it would take only two of them to destroy the DPRK. The DPRK supports the proposals made by Comrade Gorbachev in Vladivostok and Reykjavik. Many problems could not be solved with South Korea. Progress in relations between the Soviet Union and the US would also help to resolve the Korea problem."

The ASBO no-one refuses

PRIVATE EYE has this wonderful story in "Funny Old World " this week (No 1133 Page 7)

"My client admits that he was drunk when he created a disturbance at Weymouth Bay Caravan Park," defending solicitor Roger Maxwell told Weymouth Magistrates Court. "He admits that he used threatening words and behaviour, he admits to shouting and banging on caravan doors, and he admits to swearing at the police when they handcuffed him. It is also true that he is already the subject of a two-year Anti-Social Behaviour Order. But in mitigation, I should point out that, due to administrative error, the wording on the ASBO specifically states that he is 'prohibited from not being drunk in a public place'"

After consultation with his fellow magistrates, Chairman of the bench Colin Weston passed judgement on thirty-eight-year-old Stephen Winstone. "It is fortunate for you that the ASBO has been badly written, because otherwise we would have been looking to sentence you to prison for up to a couple of years. However, you were technically fulfilling the terms of your ASBO by being drunk in public, so the court will show leniency to you. You are fined £100." (Dorset Echo, 17/03/05. Spotter: Sue Webb)

...a small and disorderly queue formed outside Weymouth Magistrates Court later all requesting being issued with an ASBO...
