‘Big Bang in Pyongyang’


Sir, – In commenting on its “Big Bang in Pyongyang”, a spokesman for Paddy Power defended the move by suggesting it was hoping to “sidestep politics” (Home News, December 20th). Hopefully it can “sidestep” North Korea’s callous dictatorship, widespread famine, everyday brutality and the absence of political and religious freedom with equal sanguineness. – Yours, etc,
