you must be furious that the article calls you "Dr Dermot Hudson" given how many times you sneer at "Professor Hawthorn". Have you kept your academic credentials under a bushel? What is the degree in? Juche Science or perhaps Songun?

It is Doctorate of Social Politics awarded for a thesis on the Songun Idea.

As to Professor Hawthorn, this is what I heard him called in my CPGB branch

Is your thesis available to read anywhere? I wasn't aware that it was necessary to write one for an honorary degree.

Right: if you get a doctorate for writing a thesis, then it's not an honorary doctorate in standard terminology.

I think we can all agree however, that the Doctorate is very well deserved for one of Britain's best loved political figures & DPRK enthusiasts.
To which I can add in celebration, the joyful anthem "Happy Smiles Everywhere" - which surely must encapsulate the people's feelings on hearing of Dermot's good news?

My thesis was duly deposited at the new Sci-Complex of the DPRK.

I believe that it can be read by any DPRK citizen. If Francis King wishes I can send him a copy the thesis.

As to the issue of the doctorate being a honorary one, this is a label that some people attached to the award but in fact I did complete and defend a thesis . Here is my interview with independent travel journalist Matt Pointon
