Five years ago in April 2012 dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN became the supreme leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea  as he was elected as elected to the positions of First Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea on 11th of April 2012 and First Chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK 13th of April2012.Subesquently he was elected Chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea at its 7th Congress in May 2016 and Chairman of the new State Affairs Commission in  June.
Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is the great successor to the Juche revolutionary cause and the Songun revolutionary cause who  pledged to carry out the behests of the great leaders President KIM IL SUNG and Chairman KIM JONG IL. He has systematised their ideas as Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism. In the DPRK the ideas and lines of the great leaders comrades KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL are carried forward 100 per cent without concession or deflection. In some countries judgements were made about preceding leaders being "60 per cent good,40 per cent bad" but the DPRK under respected Marshal KIM JONG UN knows no such lack of respect or revisionism but believes in the great leader
President KIM IL SUNG and the great leader chairman KIM JONG IL a 100 per and a 1000 per cent . Indeed dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN made sure that comrade KIM JONG IL was named as the Eternal general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea.
   Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN fought hard to make sure that the DPRK adhered to the socialist road saying that "The permanent strategy of our revolution and its final victory lie in marching straight along the road of independence, the road of Songun and the road of socialism, as indicated by President Kim Il Sung and General Kim Jong Il."

  In December 2013 he defeated the anti-party counter-revolutionary modern factionalist clique who planned derail socialism in People's Korea and restore capitalism making the DPRK either a colony of the US or a dependency of a certain big power.
  The people-first policy has always been stressed by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN . At the 7th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea he said that " Applying the people-first principle is the intrinsic demand of our Party, which is struggling for the sake of the masses of the people and conducting its activities by relying on them.
    All the work and activities of the Party should be conducted with the masses of the people at the centre. The climate of believing in the strength of the people and depending on them should pervade the whole Party, and the main thrust of Party work should be directed at promoting the people's well-being.
    "Let the whole Party make selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the great people!"–this is the fighting slogan our Party should be holding high at present. We should regard it as an iron rule to respect the people, defend their destiny and give the highest and absolute priority to their interests and comfort".


He has always attacked bureaucracy and inefficiency.Marshal KIM JONG UN does not believe in inefficiency , incompetence and backsliding under socialism. He believes that the interests of the people should come first and that officials must always work for the people . 'Inefficient ' and 'incompetent' socialism is actually a very dangerous phenomen  . In the past revisionist-led socialist countries such as the Soviet Union and the eastern European socialists countries became associated with bureaucracy and stagnation , although the people of these countries enjoyed advantages such as full employment there were some shortcomings in people's lives. These were exaggerated and used by the enemies of socialism. Here in the UK there never was socialism  however the social democratic policies of post-war Labour governments was often described as "socialist " or "socialism " by the Tories and even by some on the Left . The 'reforms' of the Labour governments became quickly associated with inefficiency and incompetence(queues for hospital treatment , poor quality education with working class children just given colouring pencils and not educated, bureaucrats at dole offices and long waits for council housing). Thus socialism had a bad name with the British people
     The respected Marshal KIM JONG UN clearly is very dynamic and strong leader. Under his leadership the DPRK brought about a great upsurge in socialist construction.
  For example, I visited the  DPRK in October 2015  on the occasion of the 70th founding anniversary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and returned  6 months later in  April 2016. In that short time the DPRK built the huge and remarkable Sci-Tech Complex as well as the Mirae Scientists Street. Earlier in September 2012 Changjon Stree had just been constructed , it was the pride of Pyongyang at the time  I can remember our guides pointing to it proudly from the Juche Idea Tower  saying  Changjon Street in excited voices but now you have Mirae Scientists Street and very soon Ryomyong Street will be completed. No  other country is carrying out such a fast pace of construction .It is all the more remarkable when you consider the massive sanctions that have been imposed on the DPRK by the US ,UNSC and others.
  Under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN the Korean people are implementing the line of developing the economy and nuclear force in parallel which was adopted the March 2013 plenary meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea. This is a modern and updated version of the line of building the economy and defence in parallel which put forward by the great leader President KIM IL SUNG in the early 1960s.
Stunning advances have been made in building up the self-defence capacity of Songun Korea. Three nuclear tests have been carried out including the test of an H bomb in January 2016. Advances have been made in ballistic missile technology including the creation of a Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile and significant progress towards an ICBM.

  The DPRK has faced down the US imperialists and south Korean fascists in the sharp confrontations that occured in March 2013 and August 2015. Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN showed daring and audacious leadership which totally outfoxed and confounded the Yankee imperialists.
 The brilliant concept of self-development first has been forward by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN  . Self-development and self-reliance are absolutely essential because if you don’t have self-reliance, the alternative is capitalist and imperialist slavery.Self-reliance is the only way ! As respcted Marshal KIM JONG UN said "The history of the Korean revolution is the one of self-development; the revolution was pioneered and has advanced victoriously by means of it. The basis of this spirit is the great leaders' revolutionary idea that a country must carry out the revolution on its own, and the form of struggle for applying it is self-reliance and fortitude. The great leaders' spirit of self-reliance and self-development, based on the principle that man is the master of his destiny and should carve out his destiny by himself, inspired our people to become stronger than anyone else in spiritual strength, not knowing the word impossible, and to develop theirs into an indisputably powerful nation.
    Today we have nothing but our own strength to rely on. No one is willing to help us and see our country reunified, powerful, well-off and flourishing. It is only when we are possessed of the spirit of self-reliance and self-development that we can go through any trials and hardships and achieve the greatest success even in the worst conditions. We should reject big-power worship and dependence on foreign forces, and push ahead with building a powerful socialist country with our own strength, technology and resources and in the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance and fortitude. We should also achieve national reunification, the long-cherished desire of our nation, on our own by strengthening our motive force"

 The US imperialists and others are slapping more sanctions on the DPRK but it will grow stronger as it produces everything with indigenous technology and resources. Recently this country has made indigenous metro train, plane and also H-bomb. All  of these are the fruition of self-reliance and self-development which  respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has stressed so basically they are the fruit of his dynamic leadership.
The past five years have been years of dynamic advance for Juche Korea which at the same time has maintained anti-imperialist and socialist principles whilst others have compromised with imperialism. The future of Juche Korea  with dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN as its supreme leader is bright . The Korean people will win further victories under his leadership , only victory and glory is in store for them.
