TO North Korea, where Kim Jong Un is talking to the massed ranks of uniformed subjects in Pyongyang. It’s the occasion of the 100th birthday of Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Un’s grandfather and North Korea’s founding President, now deceased.

The crowd hope Mr Kim Jong Un manages to be there for his centennial, chanting:

“May he live 10,000 years.”

Says Kim Jong Un, 27 years young:

 “I express my greetings to our compatriots in South Korea and across the world who dedicate themselves to reunification and the prosperity of the nations … Let’s move on towards our final victory.”

Is that a threat? Last Friday, the country’s satellite-bearing rocket exploded soon after take-off. It was reported thus:

The earth observation satellite failed to enter its preset orbit.

Mr Kim is undaunted. He is the new chairman of the National Defence Commission. He is also First Secretary of the Party, chairman of the Central Military Commission, member of the Politburo and its Presidium and all round Good Egg with Jimmy Carr’s hair. If Mr Kim did daunted he would be its President.

And he’s not just about the letters. Kim Jong Un can talk.
