NORTH Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has admitted wondering if his people love him as deeply and infinitely as they claim.
The supreme leader, who took over two years ago, sometimes feels like the 25 million North Koreans only fell for him on the rebound from his father Kim Jong-il.
He said: “One minute they were all oh, your dad is the only light in our sky guiding us to a glorious revolutionary future, the next they were all over me.
Yes, they applaud my speeches for 40 minutes at a time and make two-mile-square mosaics of my face, but are their hearts in it or are they just going through the rigidly synchronised motions?
And I dont like to be jealous, but look at their history. Before Dad, they were all over my grandfather like a cheap grey workers smock.
Do these people just unconditionally adore anyone on a stage called Kim? What are they, Pixies fans?
I guess Id believe they meant it if they did something romantic like, I dont know, overwhelming the South Korean border defences, drowning the enemy in their bodies, taking the whole country by force and executing every able-bodied man over 18.
Until they do, Ill still feel like the only person I can trust is Dennis Rodman.
