A thirst for power! North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has a taste for hard liquor - and imported £33,000 of spirits from arch-enemy America last year alone

Import figures show Pyongyang's elite also spent £127,000 on German booze.
Imported £48,000 worth of Italian cheese and £715,000 on Brazilian coffee.
The luxury purchases come as 2.8million North Koreans struggle to buy food.
