How much easier would this all have been if the Swedish detectives had simply popped over to ask a few preliminary questions last year in order to ascertain the need for rendi...(ooops sorry) extradition. If Sweden won't/can't allow him to be extradited to the U.S. because of the death penalty if found guilty, why the hell can't they provide a guarantee that that won't happen? All very silly.

It's good to see that Assange recognized that citizens of the USA, GB, Sweden and other places have backed him. Disingenuious politicians have double standards on exposing truth. They say that those who refuse to be searched or examined must be be criminals, but they themselves panic, run and cry "treason" when someone exposes them.

Assange is a bizarre person. Genuinely bizarre. He works for the Russian KT TV channel that is backed by Pussy Riot jailor Vladimir Putin while seeking asylum via notorious human-rights violator Ecuador - all to protect him from facing the renowned fairness of the Swedish justice system...

He could be granted Equadorian citizenship, and then appointed information attaché at the embassy in London. That would give him diplomatic immunity and he could walk out. Not my idea, Tariq Ali's.

If he is innocent of assault, why doesn't he just go and face the court in Sweden (hardly a corrupt and repressive country) rather than hiding behind the apron strings of Equador. But if he is guilty......

Latest comment: You might even argue that if he were guilty, he could go... even if found guilty, he'd be unlikely to face more than 7 months in jail; less than he's likely to spend in the embassy! It's the lack of any guarantee about further rendition that is so worrying. If you think that's not a concern, how would you feel if you were on this list: LINK
