Springtime For Kim Jong Il

The new British Ambassador to North Korea waxes a little too eloquent over the happy days in the North. Writes Peter Hughes of the DPRK's "election" day:

“There was a very festive atmosphere throughout the city. Many people were walking to or from the polling stations, or thronging the parks to have picnics or just stroll.”

How lovely! And what shall they eat during those picnics, given that the North just rejected US food aid and ordered aid NGOs to leave the country? Maybe if they are lucky, they can have pizza.
