Today's pearl from Pyongyang

Quote o' the day from the KCNA:

"The entire electorate expressed expectation and conviction that the nominated candidates for deputies would devote themselves to the sacred struggle to strengthen the government of the Republic, firmly defend the socialist system and build a great prosperous and powerful nation".

Bit of a paradox there, chaps.

There is no contradiction. Don't forget that socialism brings "wealth" in a different form from the divisive capitalist system of worker oppression. Socialism brings "social justice" and "work/life balance" and other unmeasurable forms of well-being. GDP is not a measure of success.

entire electorate expressed

presumably by emailing in their messages of expectation and conviction

or perhaps texting

or twittering ?
