Weapon of choice

In the past I might have been tempted to claim that there is little real choice when it comes to elections in the UK - it's like being asked to decide between varying shades of grey. Tomorrow's election is different, but there will still probably be those who continue to chunter on about the illusion of choice. Perhaps they would do well to read this article, which underlines that, for North Korean immigrants, the election presents a bewildering array of options rather than a straightforward choice of faithful and fearful obedience over punishment. In other words, it could be worse.
