Bad Hair Day

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Hyesan high school students forced to write self-criticisms for “inappropriate” hairstyles.

The students are being called into a Socialist Patriotic Youth League office every day to write self-criticism letters from morning to evening, a source told Daily NK.

Five female students at a high school in Hyesan, Yanggang Province, were recently busted by an enforcement team for having “inappropriate hairstyles.”…

On June 20, one such team on street patrol busted five girls in their second year at Hyehwa Senior Middle School for dying their hair. North Korea takes issue with students dying their hair a color other than black, claiming such actions encourage “capitalist delinquency.”


Completely bonkers of course, but presumably there isn’t much scope for gender politics either. Admittedly a very small silver lining – I much prefer our brand of political lunacy to theirs. I wonder if grey hair is inappropriate though?  
It does raise another question – how global political options appear to be narrowing down to the brand of political lunacy you prefer. At the moment the choice is obvious enough, but sometimes when scanning the media headlines each day – well it does make a chap wonder about the future.

      When I saw your headline, I thought you were talking about Boris Johnson.
