Tip for making your way to the top: North Korea is reportedly being governed by Jang Song Taek, while Kim Jong Il recuperates from a stroke. Jang is Kim Jong Il’s brother-in-law and also runs the state’s secret police service. On why Jang is a suitable candidate for the top post:


“He has fewer enemies than other senior cadres because when he purges people, they are not just sent away from Pyongyang, they are killed”, Mr. Choi Jin Wook of the Korea Institute for National Unification (Straits Times, 11 November 2008)

Well, let’s hope that Jang’s enemies do not show the same tenacity as Singapore’s own leader who once famously said “Even from my sick bed, even if you are going to lower me into the grave and I feel something is going wrong, I will get up.”
