Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange arrested

Finally. We can now start to bring this loathsome, self-serving piece of slime to justice.

...pardon me. I mean alleged loathsome, self-serving piece of slime.
It would be interesting to know what you think of him. :)

I must admit to finding him creepy, but that is probably not an adequate basis for judgement. It seems that he so relentlessy aggravated the Ecuadorians by his insufferable behaviour that he brought this on himself. Evidently the guest from hell. He broke his bail conditions at any event and involved the British government in a great deal of expense and hassle. It seems that is has been agreed with the Ecuadorians that he can't be extradited to America.

Assange was seeking asylum against the US. It would be illegal to extradite him to the US. The main reason why Equador handed him over was because of the massive bribe negotiated by Pompeo.

I wonder which bit of 'alleged' loathsome activity he was actually arrested for.........with luck it was all of them
It was the heinous, loathsome act of "failing to surrender to the court" over a warrant issued in 2012.

Yes, he broke his bail conditions and this the immediate ground for his arrest; but then he will have to face the issues that caused him to be placed on bail in the first place!

Good. Assange initially appeared to be a force for good, but he could not sustain that false image.
