Have you ever wondered what there is for entertainment in a totalitarian Stalinist dictatorship with a dead but nevertheless eternal president? It sounds like something Eric Idle might ask in a Monty Python sketch and is an idle thought for us, perhaps.
Yet for the people of North Korea the list of answers is hardly as endless as their deceased president's rule. Mangyongdae funfair would certainly feature high on the list. Yet from our perspective it is little more than a rusting death trap.
