North Korea Comedy

Recommended Posts

Every single vote cast on Sunday in Kim's constituency was for the man who can now add MP to his many titles that include Supreme Commander of the armed forces and chairman of the powerful National Defence Commission. . State media has confirmed what was never in doubt - a 100 percent, no-abstention poll victory for leader Kim Jong-Un in the country's stage-managed parliamentary election. "This is an expression of ... people's absolute support and profound trust in supreme leader Kim Jong-Un as they single-mindedly remain loyal to him, holding him in high esteem." Each of the nearly 700 constituencies had only one state-sanctioned candidate, ensuring a foregone conclusion in every case. Voting was mandatory and state media said all registered voters across the country - except for those based overseas - took part. Link

100% - that's what I call election victory.

I'm sure some UK addresses have had a greater than 100% turnout.

Postal voting?

For a better democracy? :lol: Elections coming up, the party workers will be on the prowl.

No, no just a coincidence according to the BBC:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-26520836

Actually, on that page they've removed all references to 'south asians' meanig bangladeshi + Mipuri pakistanis.

That page has changed since I last read it!

There is a website that monitors and compares changes to websites, tracking any changes- can't remember the name!

On postal votes it soon became clear that parts of the UK system was well open to dodginess.

As soon as a postal vote is received it should be put in a secure location like a poll box ready for counting along with the others but no when visiting the main polling office they were just left strewn all over the place on tables and on tops of cabinets etc even on the floor and completely open to the general public and non-poll staff who could have just opened them to take a peek or even just taken quite a few of them away. It looked as if they were going to remain neglected and never be counted.

Not a system to be recommended for widespread use.

At least unlike the EU it only takes one vote to get the correct answer, in Ireland they voted no and get asked to vote again.

Such is the irony of how the western media loves to ridicule the "electoral" system of N. Korea.

it would have looked a bit suspect with a 105% vote wouldn't it?

jong-un is a silly little boy who shouldn't be let loose with a box of matches, let alone nukes.

...and when the irish realise the EU screwed them over worse than the british ever did?.........

you have a bunch of hardened guerilla fighters(and that's INCLUDING the IRA).

The seeds have been sewn already TBH....the EU commission lack of respect or the Irish,dutch and french "non" vote was pretty much the last straw.

given merkel's suggestion of "re-education" lessons in primary school..frankly it does take the piss a bit.

you can't bully or brainwash people into loving you.
