Racist Daily Mail Wrong about North Korea

In 2013 the (rightwing) British media (falsely) reported that the government of North Korea legally limits the number of hairstyles available to men and women to just twenty eight. The number of twenty-eight was said to be the number by which Socialism can resist the onslaught of Capitalism. According to the (rightwing) Daily Mail and City Metro newspapers (21.2.2013), pictures of haircuts on a barbershop wall in North Korea – eighteen for women and ten for men – are the product of DPRK legislation limiting the hairstyles that North Korean citizens can choose.
