Watching the defectors: speaking truth to power

Exiles may not be typical, but their voices are authentic and vital

As they used to say about London buses: You wait for ages, then two come along at once.

Right now, here in the Disunited Kingdom, it’s a bit like that with North Korean defectors. It’s a rare treat to get the chance to hear these brave people speak. Also, living as I do far from London, and with a young family, to my regret I miss most of the few who do pass through.
