Today's elections in the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea, in which everyone is expected to vote and they only have a choice of one candidate, has been overshadowed by a triumphant week in The People's Democratic Republic of Ireland.

According to the official State news agency in Ireland, the country witnessed unprecedented scenes of jubilance last week as three days in Parliament were devoted to a celebration of its Great Leader for Life and his Government.

"The Great Leader for Life is very beloved by his people and it had been the general wish of the populace that three days would be set aside to celebrate his achievements in the last three years in Government. One day per year," according to a report from the agency.
