This was posted on another forum I frequent.
He is being indicted for conspiring with Chelsea Manning to publish classified documents revealing U.S. war crimes. This is a monstrous assault on press freedom in the interest of protecting the ability of the U.S. government to engage in war crimes without fear of discovery.

If "justice" has anything to say about this, the UK will deny the extradition request and, after disposing of the bail skipping charges in whatever manner UK courts deem appropriate, release Assange to freedom.
If anything Assange has done more to abett state criminality.

Ah, the Jez Usbourne* definition of justice.

*Character from the sitcom Peep Show. Quote - "Justice has been done. Well, not justice but what I want, which is the same thing."

I see Fenton's pet tiresomely tedious twat has lambasted him BTL for his post: https://zelo-street.blogspot.com/2019/0 ... ourns.html
Come now, he's citing such colossal, towering thinkers as...er...Craig Murray...

Craig Murray seems quite a favourite amongst the Left, or am I mistaken?

Interestingly, Fenton posted this reply to his BTL comment:
Dissenting views are always welcome in response to posts.

Personal abuse and name-calling are not.

So the above comment has been passed, despite not agreeing with what was posted. Other comments were not.

He's quite popular with some of the ones who fall into a sub-section of the left which could best be coined as "complete fucking whackjobs".

As an aside, you know someone's going to be doing a film or drama based on Assange's time in the Ecuadorian Embassy.

Can I suggest the title "The Seven Year Snitch"?

Followed shortly after by the inevitable porn parody "The Seven Year Snatch" (feat. Pamela Anderson)
