To be purged once may be regarded a misfortune. Twice looks like carelessness. To be purged three times is a bit showy though, isn't it.

Say what you like about Uncle Joe, but when he purged someone, they stayed purged.

The Kims binge as well as purge, is I guess how you could look at it. Especially given all the drink driving.

Richard J

Given I've just seen a tweet that he's been shot, I'm aware of only one man who's supposed to have made a comeback from that.

Wenseslao Moguel?

50 Cent?

Simstim

Reagan?

Rasputin?

Tchoh, our lord and saviour. Or, just possibly, Perkin Warbeck.

Saint Sebastian.

You have to hand it to the DPRK, they don't hang about. Any ideas what happened there?

ajay

Does Richard mean that Jesus was shot, or that Jesus was possibly Perkin Warbeck? Either way I think his Sunday school is overdue for an Ofsted inspection.

I'd been assuming that Rasputin was the correct answer. Now frantically googling Warbeck

Heh.

What's unusual about this whole affair is how well publicised it was. People normally just vanish. There are two lines of interpretation. The first, which tends to be favoured by outside observers, is that Kim has disposed of his mentor and wants to send a signal that he's now in full control of the family firm. The second, which tends to be favoured by NK defectors, is that the whole affair shows that KJU is weak and entirely in the hands of competing factions who are now in open warfare: if he was fully in control JST would have been disposed of in the typical Kimist way, ie quietly until the boss considered what strategic use he wished to make of the affair. Events seem consistent with either explanation.
