Handshake That Made History

The 12-second handshake will go down in history: the first time a President of the United States has met a North Korean leader. A monumental summit between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump took place at a luxury hotel in Singapore overnight. As they walked off side-by-side after shaking hands, Kim said to Trump (through an interpreter):

“Many people in the world will think of this as a form of fantasy from a science fiction movie.”

Here’s what happened…

The pair enjoyed a working lunch and a joint stroll together around the hotel grounds. They then signed a document – not yet officially released – stating:

“President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”

Kim has already left. A press conference with President Trump is expected to get underway now. Tough morning for Trump critics…

Peace In Our Time

The world is waking up to new hope for peace on the Korean peninsula after an historic meeting between Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in overnight. The North Korean dictator shook hands with the South Korean President at the Joint Security Area in the truce village of Panmunjon. Moon briefly stood in North Korea with Kim before the two departed for talks, including on the North’s now suspended ICBM tests. The White House also released pics of Kim meeting CIA director Mike Pompeo over Easter. All eyes now on Trump’s summit with Kim which looks likely to go ahead…

When foreign affairs leads the news thoughts naturally turn to Jeremy Corbyn. The visit must be making interesting watching in the leader’s office, especially for top aide and general election campaign chief Andrew Murray, who is on record saying:

“We should also be alert to the very real dangers in the Fareast and around Peoples Korea. The clear desire of the USA to effect regime change in its second axis of evil target could well provoke an armed clash there, too. Our Party has already made its basic position of solidarity with Peoples Korea clear.”

Trump will end up with the peace prize at this rate. It’ll be entertaining watching those who want to ban the President from London today…

Momentum Chair: “I’d Rather Have Solidarity With North Korea Than USA”

A Labour Party and Momentum official sports the flag of North Korea in her Twitter bio and says she has “solidarity” with the communist pariah state:

Sarah Cundy, who is the Canterbury CLP Youth Officer and Canterbury Momentum Chair, reckons the DPRK is “willing to stand up to imperialism” and “has weapons to keep themselves and their population safe”, concluding “I’d rather have solidarity with DPRK than the USA”:

She is pictured above with Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry and Canterbury Labour MP Rosie Duffield. Are they going to have a word?
