Theresa slaps on warpaint
PM’s new battle cry
PRIME Minister Theresa May has refused to rule out military action against nutty North Korean despot Kim Jong-un.
Mrs May, wearing striking red lipstick on a visit to Japan, called his antics “outrageous”.
THERESA May refused yesterday to rule out military action against North Korean despot Kim Jong-un.
The Premier was speaking in Japan hours after the rebel communist leader fired a ballistic missile over the country. North Korea’s launching of a Hwasong-12 missile, which is believed to be capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, sparked international condemnation and raised the threat of a global conflict. Tensions increased when the North Korean regime yesterday threatened to target the US territory of Guam. Speaking on her state visit to Japan, Mrs May refused four times to rule out military action when questioned. Instead she said: “The actions of North Korea are ® illegal, they are significant actions of provocation.
“That’s why we will be redoubling our efforts with our international partners to put pressure on North Korea to stop.
“The UK is looking at the discussion around further sanctions.”
Mrs May also refused to rule out cyber attacks against Kim Jong-un and his regime, saying: “If we were doing that we certainly wouldn’t be telling you”.
Her words came after US President Donald Trump responded to North Korea’s threat against Guam.
He tweeted: “The US has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years. Talking is not the answer!”
REDDY FOR BATTLE: PM May
CONDEMNED: Kim Jong-un
