In company with Bradley Manning this clown released classified information to the public. If he wants to play first grade he can man up and wear the results.

What Assange is hiding from is consequences of his actions……which he seemingly isn’t man enough to face

I agree that it was not in anyone’s interests to leak information. From what I can tell it was largely ineffective. If we are to believe what we are told, I am willing for the most part. But the government has an obligation to protect its citizens anywhere in the world. Nothing has been proven in the courts and he should be given the support available to anyone abroad. Gillard basically abandoned an Australian who has still the presumption of innocence in his corner, albeit a bit of a weirdo.

Good news on ABC’s The Drum webpage today for local Assange groupies – courtesy of Antony Green, we learn that apparently Assange can run for a Senate seat in any state or territory, regardless of his, er, place of domicile.

…seriously??? It’s fucking dumb that he wants to run for any form of government. He is fighting the good fight to the best of his abilities, but even if he got elected he has nothing to add in that capacity. It’s even more dumb if be is aloud to run while holed up in a embassy.

I listened to this very robust interview between the BBC and Assange in full on radio, but link below comes with pictures!

I thought he came across like more of a naughty boy than the messiah.

Becuase extradition orders for nothing more than questioning is ridiculous, especially considering they can do it via video link or in person in england. If sweden came out and said they wanted to arrest him charge him, then extradition is completely warranted.

Have you read the article in that link or are you waiting for it to come out as a comic book?

Here’s a passage from it you need to read:

“Four: “The Swedes should interview Assange in London”
This is currently the most popular contention of Assange’s many vocal supporters. But this too is based on a misunderstanding.

Assange is not wanted merely for questioning.

He is wanted for arrest.”

And yes, i am more qualified and kniow far more than anyone else on this subject and all others, as i previously have stated.

You are welcome to believe your own narcissistic hubris, but for most Rioter respondents here it appears to be a treat seeing the Assange Hillsong Evangelist Sorority getting their sorry asses whipped!

That comment literally makes no sense.

I’m pretty sure you are the only one elevating him to lord and godly status.

You really do have difficulty reading and comprehending others posts, don’t you?

You are the one saying he does not have to comply with the Swedish District court, who issued a warrant for him. Or the ruling of the Svea Court of Appeal to which he appealed the issuing of the warrant (they upheld it by the way).

And you say he does not have to comply with the European Arrest Warrant, issued by the EU.

His extradition was then argued in the Belmarsh Magistrates Court, which upheld the validity of the warrant and ordered his extradition. As was his right he appealed this to the High Court of England who dismissed the appeal.

Not satisfied with that, he appealed it to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, who also dismissed the appeal.

So it has been argued in a number of jurisdictions by some of the best barristers in this field and ruled upon by magistrates and justices. But of course you know better than them.

So once again I ask you this simple question which you have continually dodged:

Why do you think he should not be bound by the laws of Sweden, the EU or the UK?

It’s interesting but not at all surprising that the same news outlets that were so enraptured by the PM’s “Mr Abbott is a misogynist” speech are the same ones making tinfoil-hat theory excuses as to why an alleged two-time rapist shouldn’t face questioning by the police. Nothing to do with Assange’s organisation providing them with lots of free material, saving them the effort of researching their own stories, of course.

I wonder how Assange’s two alleged victims feel?

Same could be said for peeps who believe everything as fact as long as its said by a right wing nut.

That would be true. But there don’t appear to be any of those around here. Just a few who refuse to worship The Lord Julian and believe he is just a man and should be subject to the same rules as the rest of us. I realise that is blasphemy to you and your kind.

Tell me, are the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom part of the conspiracy? Are they taking their orders from Alan Jones as well?

Is that why The Lord Julian does not have to comply with their legal rulings?

Does He only have to go along with court rulings that He personally approves of?

Or only ones that you approve of?
