    And now they have dismembered his organization, Wikileaks.

    So first they assassinated the character of Julian Assange, then they assassinated his organization and called for the assassination of his person. All of this in just a couple of days. It's a warning to all of us.

    Assange has just been released on bail in England for Christmas, and Wikileaks has been cleared of anything criminal under Australian law. At least he's safe to come home now, if he gets through the Swedish trial. And I can read wikileaks safely!

    We'll see if the US laws hold up as well for a non-citizen in the current political environment.
    Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

    Julia would give him up to the US government in a heartbeat if he came back here. After the initial media furore had died down at least.

    I hope the Vatican is his next target.

    Our justice system refuses to prostrate itself before US bullies once again. It almost makes one proud to be British.
    Almost.

    Almost.
    Your justice system has the military, strategic and economic power of the EU backing it up. We have only our alliance with the US to protect us from a possible Chinese invasion. If that's too hypothetical the Indonesian economy is predicted to outgrow the Australian economy in 10 or so years IIRC, which would give their military the upper hand over us for the first time in modern history. You can be damn sure they'd be willing to invade us if they could do so without the risk of decisive intervention from the US. Australian and US leaders both know that. There's no way in hell Britain would step in to save our hides no matter our shared queen, heritage, historical/cultural ties etc. Even if they could. Therefore Assange would be mad to come back to Aus anytime in the foreseeable future. Our leaders would surrender him as soon as it was politically survivable to do so. If both major parties agreed it was in Australia's best interests (likely) that could well be immediately.

    Best you stay in England, Julian.

    To be proud to be British go see the movie, "Made in Dagenham", where British women gained Equal Pay Legistation for the first time in the world. And if that's not enough cast your mind back to 1833 when the British House of Commons abolished institutional slavery for the first time in human history.
