The Government’s approval rating has improved slightly to minus 7%.
Changes shown are compared to the last daily YouGov poll I reported on 20 November.
The Korean peninsula is one of the most heavily militarised area in the world with a cold war style frontier between the rich, capitalist, democratic south and the poor, socialist north.
North Korea is a notoriously paranoid Socialist regime and we can but hope that this is a limited, albeit serious, incident.
UPDATE: A number of South Korean soldiers have been injured and the South has returned fire.
