My new favourite news site

Thanks to the great Tim Blair I have now become aware of what must be the best news site on the planet.

Certainly, if you asked the North Koreans then they'd agree.

That's because it's the new English language version of North Korea's official paper, The Rodong Sinmun.

The articles are completely hilarious. My current favourite is an editorial Full Play to Advantage of Socialist Economic Management System.
The DPRK and its people are now greeting the 50th anniversary of the Taean Work System created by President Kim Il Sung.
The President created the Taean System, model of the socialist economic management, in the early 1960s when the socialist system was established and the overall technical modernization of the national economy was progressing in the DPRK.
This system is the advantageous Korean-style socialist economic management that embodies the Juche idea and the revolutionary mass line based on it.
It helps conduct all the business activities under the collective guidance of party committees and rouse the popular masses to the implementation of economic tasks by giving priority to political affairs. The system also makes it possible for the superior to help the lower in a responsible manner and to closely combine the science and technology with production and turn the economic lever into good account in order to ensure the production in a rational way.
It is the people-centered economic management system, whereby the popular masses manage and run the economy in a scientific and rational way as the true masters of its management, and the socialist economic management system that embodies the collective principle of "One for all and all for one!" This is essential character of the Taean Work System and herein lies the source of its inexhaustible might.
The past five decades after establishment of the system are a glorious and immortal history in which the socialist economy of the DPRK hewed out the original path of its development under the leadership of the great leader and the great party and the Korean people have wrought epoch-making miracles in the economic construction while overcoming all sorts of trials and challenges.
It is important to solve any problem arising in the economic activities in a Korean way suited to intrinsic nature of socialist society, with clear awareness that the victory of socialism is just victory of the revolutionary principle.
All the people should give full play to the advantage of the Juche-oriented socialist economic management system under the leadership of Kim Jong Il.
If anyone can tell me what that means then feel free to provide feedback!

My favourite bit is that "One for all and all for one!" is now a collective principle in North Korea. I'm sure that The Three Musketeers is banned there, as it might give people funny ideas about rising up against the oppressors, so the ruling party is probably pretty safe from being discovered.

You weren't kidding about the "hilarious" part. I'm not one of those economists or forex trading brokers, but it's obvious how that economic master plan has turned out so far.
