Sorry, but the DPRK is one of the few countries on the world, where tourists aren't allowed to drive by their own. Driver and guide are always included. The guys, who wrote books about their trips (I already own all in German language), were transported either in a "Cuckoo" or a Landcruiser with a different badge (that guy couldn't find out, if only the badge was replaced or it it was a real DPRK-assembled car.

We should try to get one of the legendary 1000 1977' Volvo 244 (which weren't paid until now) :) The Mercedes 190-copy is not recommended, because absolute junk, as I read in Link to "www.amazon.de" , written by HIS fled purchaser.

:think: Really not expensive. I've thought, it would be more. O.k., you have to add the costs of the flight. In every case you have to go to Beijing first, as the only access is from China. Passing the border from South Korea is unthinkable, also no possibility for enterin via Russia. Taking the ferry from Japan is not possible for foreigners.

For what infringements? I'm never involved in anything like this. O.k., except provoking off-topic-discussions (in the admin's eyes) around here... :whistle:
Otherwise I'm not really sure, if in Antoine's opinion it's a delict, which is appropriate avenged with a stay in a North Korean punishment camp. :wow:

But seriously the DPRK is a muich safer travel-destination than sixcyl's beloved Chavez-Venezuela. The German ministery for foreign affarirs has even published a warning about this country, because of the very common criminality. Otherwise I would have asked sixcyl, if he maybe has an interest to watch, how it's going on there. And Gomselmash, if he would join us, especially for helping with translation. ;)

:think: Shall we throw a coin before, who of us is responsible for the flowers here Link to "de.wikipedia.org" Everyone, also foreign tourists, has to put flowers there (costs 5 € extra). A refusal makes the guides very upset and will causes cramped moods.

Two hours ago I got a call from my Japanese friend and among other things we had also talked about North Korea and its cars (Hiroshi cannot join a DPRK-trip, as in Japanese passports it's remarked "for all countries except North Korea :/ ).

His familiy has connections to the Port of Yokohama Authority, so he could tell me a some details, for example about the http://picasaweb.google.com/birgit1401/DprkAutomobiles#5273452398354155810 Not all W201 there were locally assembled, resp.copied. In 1984 or 1985 500 orignal 190 E were ordered at Yanase, all identical (LHD, 2.0 liter fuel engine, manual transmission, no aircondition, no power windows, lowest trim line). They were ordered in Japan, because a direct delivery from Germany was not legal/possible.

Since a few days a new model appeared in the DPRK: the actual VW Jetta. Just last week 100, maybe 200 (all LHD) were shipped from Yokohama to an officially unknown destination, but insiders have said, to North Korea.

A man was arrested in Tokyo in June for smuggling used to cars to North Korea via South Korea, with false paperwork claiming that they were for the Indian embassy in Pyongyang:
Link to "www.nkeconwatch.com"

I wonder if the "officially unknown destination" for the Jettas might be Burma/Myanmar, where most cars are imported secondhand from Japan even though traffic drives on the right.

If you think about it, just about every major government in Europe is to the middle be it centre right or centre left. If Lateef keeps up his 'third way' stance a career in politics beckons. Being in the middle wins votes. It just helps if you don't have any guiding principles to get in the way of that.

Sandie wrote If Lateef keeps up his 'third way'

In Germany the "third way" is an absolute no-go. This term was used in the 80ies for -total unrealistic- crazy ideas to create a mongrel of the West German and the DDR-systems, in political, social and ecnomomic ways. Fortunately these absurd thinkings were paralysed very fast, within a few weeks in early 1990.

Annother -also failed- "third way" ws made by Yugoslavia's Marshall Tito, trying to be independent between the Western and the Eastern blocks. Fidel Castro had this idea, too, but the harsh US-behaviour has pushed him into the Sovietish arms.

Enver Hoxha's Albania tried an own "third way", too, maneuvring between the USSR and China.

Was it ever not that way? We've always tended to have this kind of attitude towards the EU. We're in it for what we can get rather than what we put in and if something is not to our benefit then we're not interested. From Mrs. Thatcher's rebate to Cameron's veto yesterday morning we have always done that. We want the free trading zone but none of the aspects of the ever closer union. Then we have our supposed 'special relationship' with the yanks. As in, we do whatever they ask of us. That said, for good or for ill, I think Cameron has a bit more backbone than Blair did.

dsl wrote Blair said UK was going to get a "third way" but it was Thatcherism sprinkled with just enough token gestures to keep the pretence going for traditional Labour voters.


That was always my issue with him. The man was an ideological black hole. Completely bereft of any of the left wing guiding ideological principles he claimed to stand for. The problem is that they have the same issue now with Ed Milliband and some of them continue to believe in the myth of people like him standing for genuine working class values and helping the people rather than himself. Only Milliband lacks the charisma of Blair. See his vacillation over backing the public sector strikes a few weeks back where he completely avoided backing them. If he had any belief in the party's traditional background (or indeed any political intelligence) he would have backed them and made some easy political capital out of the coalition and the strikes. And Clegg and Cameron are not any better.

@sandie - agree with both those comments. But what is wrong with the European Free Trade Area as a concept and as the appropriate level for Britain to participate? What EU seems to be doing now is destroying individual national abilities to manage or steer their own economies in a desperate attempt to save the euro, which may be an inevitable consequence of that objective, but in long-term too inflexible for national government. EU has become far too controlling an influence and has stopped being a member-driven organisation. And that's what worries me about Scottish independence - we've been marginalised enough within UK for an escape route to be well worth pursuing, but if that route out means surrendering direction to EU collectivism then the outcome may be worse marginalisation from actually being able to steer the new Scotland in its best direction.
