Playing Top Trumps with North Korea
Are you one of those people staying up late to watch the Winter Olympics? Nope, me neither. My interest is directly proportionate to the danger the athletes face. So I have a bit of an interest in, say, the luge, where someone might die in a spectacular way, and zero interest in, say, the ice skating.
But the real fun has been taking place away from the athletics.
In fact the real blood sport is the diplomacy being conducted in front of the cameras and behind the scenes.
