Julian Assange

So District Judge Howard Riddle has ruled that Julian Assange should be extradited from the UK to Sweden to face charges of sexual assault, however suspect or bogus the claims may be.
No doubt there will now be a round of appeals which will delay the dreaded day. After all, Julian Assange is surrounded by high profile celebrities and lawyers who see him as an innocent about to be indirectly shafted by the vindictive American Government who have made it plain that they have been highly embarrassed by the Wikileaks disclosures.
Whatever your viewpoint on the rights and wrongs of what Wikileaks does, espionage is not a charge that Julian Assange should face in America, which is where he will end up for sure if extradited to Sweden due to the connivance which no doubt is going on behind the scenes between the authorities in Sweden and America. The Oxford dictionary quotes espionage as: the practice of spying or of using spies, typically by governments to obtain political and military information.
This has been a very sad week for British justice and one can only hope that in the end good will triumph over the bad.

Forget Assange, his big business movie deal and his $1,500,000 corporate book deal (some rebel, what a sell-out), instead read a book that’s really been BANNED like “America Deceived II” by a real rebel who the media hates, E.A. Blayre III.
