According to the majority of those ‘experts’ the Australian propaganda ministry [the (G)Ay Bee Cee] trundles out from their storage closets, Julian Assange is despicable; should at the very least be expeditiously removed from view, kept in quarantine, the record of his accomplishments expunged and hopefully, consequently, be forgotten by society.
After all that IS the way they are required to operate as dictated by their ‘political masters’ – the same ‘masters’ who keep encouraging the peanut rush to ‘just move on’ after each and every spectacular foul up.
Political regimes of every stripe appear to be escalating heartlessness and brutality in the guise of pragmatism at an accelerating rate.
Tacit acceptance of this seems an indication that core societal principles have been cast aside by the majority of the human race.
Having said that it must be considered that the death penalty is just a bit stiff for winning a few scoops off the ‘mainstream media’ at the expense of those allegedly ‘transparent democracies’– or was it having a bonk or two without his wearing a frenchie that got the buggers so upset?
If it has been ‘okay’ over the past many years for the Seppos/Brits to grant asylum to a variety of dissenters, traitors and ne’er do wells – certainly often enough to establish precedent – then what the hell is wrong with Ecuador providing sanctuary to a Townsville lad?

The only way to assure the inviolacy of the Ecuadorian embassy in
is to ensure that the fact of any breach of that embassy becomes immediately publicly known worldwide. London
In short, the fear of resultant reciprocal action (in fact a cornerstone of the relevant
convention) is the only leverage available toward achieving natural and true justice for Mr. Assange. Vienna
Compliance with what?
There’s now some word on the net that
Ecuador wants to extradite one Aliaksandr Barankov to – Belarus
http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/ExBelarus+financial+crime+prober+fights+extradition+Ecuador+week/7118193/story.html - all of which, in conjunction with the Townsville lad’s plight, puts
on the spot and under the microscope. Ecuador
Their judges of civil/inquisitorial persuasion (as opposed to our common law/adversarial variety) will doubtless be criticized for their decision by those unfamiliar with the code of Napoleon.
Sweden or leastways Swedish nationals play a stunt in – Belarus
Sure it’s a joke to invade another nation’s airspace and without notice or approval drop unknown items by parachute over their cities.
Anyone would agree that on the face of it
should be encouraged to release poor Anton for doing nothing more than taking pikkies. Belarus
Then again a better headline might be “Amnesty condones invasion of
’ airspace and illegal dropping of Swedish ordnance”. Belarus
The sub header could be “Swedes to be extradited for false flag invasion?”
God sakes – now I know why certain tasteless turnip like vegetables are called Swedes.
But it is funny to discover how
does appear like some lurking actor playing the ‘eminence grise’ - in a bad play. Sweden
Funny my arse – bloody amateurishly sinister as far as this writer is concerned when this stuff turns up during a casual read despite being neither sought nor solicited.
So what could happen if a hyped-up
Britain is gulled by an arrogant, overzealous and bribed by a mob of vindictive Gringos to nab a circumstantially diplomatically inviolate Julian from his Latin American sanctuary? Sweden
Well, the second innings perhaps but with no covert support for the Brits this time from a friendly dictator
If luck is pushed too far the best outcomes for a Falkland Islander might rely on the toss of a coin
