One year ago on the 29th of June 2016 dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN was elected as Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea , the highest office of state in the DPRK , which replaced the National Defence Commission of the DPRK. From April 2012 dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN had been First Chairman of the NDC. Now the Supreme People's Assembly which represents the democratic and popular will of the entire people of the DPRK chose Marshal KIM JONG UN to be the Chairman of the State Affairs Commission . The DPRK is a true people's democracy , a socialist democracy where the people exercise real power. In the DPRK election turnout is almost 100 per cent compared to only 68.7 per cent in the UK general election of 2017 and only 55 per cent in the US presidential. DPRK voters also have the right to recall deputies which is unknown in the so-called 'democracies ' of the capitalist West. So basically dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is Chairman of the State Affairs Commision by the will of the people and the will of the people alone .The unity around dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is truly remarkable , it is invincible single-hearted unity unknown in the West and in fact unthinkable in Western countries which are heavily divided by chasms of class and race .It is no exaggeration to say that in capitalist societies everyone hates each other. In People's Korea , a socialist society based on the great Juche Idea does not know social or ethnic divisions , there is no austerity , there is no one begging in the streets therefore it is only natural that people should unite around a single leader and a single party in one heart and mind.
The respected Marshal KIM JONG UN and the Workers' Party of Korea only lead the DPRK because this is what the Korean people want , every single man , women and child , want dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN to lead and guide them and look up to him not just as a leader but as their saviour .
The Korean people sing the song about dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN " We Follow Only You " which they have sung since the defeat of the evil anti-party counter-revolutionary modern factionalists .It symbolises the fact the Korean people are solidly united behind dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN Our British delegation also sang this song in April 2017 when we visited People's Korea to attend the celebrations of the 105th anniversary of the birth of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG.
Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN enjoys the support of the Korean people because treasures and embodies the legacy of the great leaders comrade KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL .The Songun revolutionary cause and Juche revolutionary cause of the great leaders President KIM IL SUNG and Chairman KIM JONG IL is today continued by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN who embodies the true Paektu spirit is the great successor to the Juche revolutionary cause and is identical to the great leaders President KIM IL SUNG and Chairman KIM JONG IL.
During the year that has passed since he became chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN has shown himself to be a true people's leader who strictly adheres to the people-first policy of the Workers' Party of Korea. He has visited construction sites, factories, schools, hospitals and every corner and nook of the DPRK . He has given on-the spot-guidance ,every second or third day . When the northern area of the DPRK was badly flooded at beginning of September 2016 , dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN ensured that the Political Bureau of the Workers' Party took a decision to quickly dispatch " the main units active in the major sites of the 200-day campaign including the construction of Ryomyong Street to the sites for the recovery from the flood damage and letting the whole Party and army and all people focus all their efforts on the rehabilitation operation". This contrasts with the attitude of the British ruling class to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire disaster . Instead of the government helping out the victims instead charities and churches had to , whereas in the DPRK the goverment and party directed all efforts to the rapid rehabilation of the disaster affected area.
Despite the sanctions the DPRK completed the construction of Ryomyong Street in April 2017 . This is another miracle of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN's guidance.It is the fruit of the great self-development first idea put forward by him. What is amazing is that the DPRK is able such large scale construction. In London it is said it costs £150,000 to build one flat(which are then sold for up to £500,000) so the cost of building 20,000 flats would be £3 billion
Respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is a man who does not flinch from the struggle against US imperialism , nor does he compromise with US imperialism unlike the leaders of some big powers. He has made People’s Korea the militant fortress of anti-imperialism and bastion of world socialism thanks to the leadership . Undoubtedly the DPRK is the most anti-US country in the world and that dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN is the leader that the US imperialists fear the most. Under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN the DPRK is advancing towards ICBM capablity and is sharpening the sword of nuclear deterrence . The DPRK's nuclear deterrence has been built up in the face When I was in the DPRK in September 2016 I saw on television the test-fire of the Hwasong road launched missile and on September 9th the DPRK announced that it had carried out its 5th nuclear test . Now the terrified American imperialists admit that it only matter a time before the DPRK can launch a nuclear strike against the US mainland !
Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN who as Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK is leading the Korean people towards a brighter and more prosperous , a future of Juche-based socialism.
