The North/South divide…

There wasn’t much feedback on yesterday’s ‘blog, it once again received no ‘likes’, which made it about as popular as a prospective judge on The Voice who suffers from motion sickness (on the subject of The Voice – why isn’t the competition on the radio if the only thing that matters is singing?). 

 

I was a bit surprised that yesterday’s ‘blog didn’t get any correspondence from the people of South Wales, although I’m told that the van delivering their letter is quibbling over the price of crossing the River Severn. That said, I stand by my slight digs aimed at South Wales and it’s clearly a bit of a rubbish place – hence the Australians deciding that the needed to make a New South Wales…  

 

Anyhow, it’s time to move on to today’s ‘blog, which is about the Kaesong industrial zone in Korea – something which I’m surprised I don’t ‘blog about every day. 

 

Korea is an interesting place, with the south being far more affluent than the north… sorry, I meant ‘England is an interesting place, with the south being far more affluent than the north’…

 

The reason I mention the Kaesong industrial zone is because North Korea has announced that it will no longer allow South Korean workers to cross the border and work in the 120 factories based in the Kaesong industrial zone. As such this has caused tensions between Seoul (the capital of South Korea and Pyongyang (the capital of North Korea). All-in-all, I’m not too fussed about the whole thing, but I’m generally siding with Seoul on the basis that it’s far easier to spell. 

 

North Korea is one of only 3 communist states still remaining (along with Cuba and China – that’s a rare WOWS ‘Blog fact for you there) and is thus isn’t viewed favourably by America, who have sent military planes to nearby regions. This includes the USS John McCain, which can intercept missiles – although I’m not sure what it does with them once it has intercepted them, does it smash the missile into loads of smaller missiles? If so, then surely that’s a far more dangerous thing? It’s a bit like saying, “would you rather get into a boxing ring with David Haye or 10 ordinary men?” (By the way, if you’re considering answering this question, David Haye would have a fully functioning toe in this bout). 

 

The naming of the plane after John McCain is an interesting one, after all he a politician so skilled that he lost to George W Bush in the nomination to be the Republican candidate in the 2000 US election and he was also imprisoned in a Vietnamese prisoner of war camp nicknamed the Hanoi Hilton – which was a place more squalid and disgusting than Paris Hilton…

 

The situation between the North and South Korea is a pretty desperate one… particularly for the people who may lose their jobs in the Kaesong industrial zone… the poor things… they’ll now be looking for a change of Korea…
