Straw to clutch.

Assange could appeal to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, though legal experts don't even think he has chance there.

The Outcome of Julian Assange's several Cases will be determined on Courts of Law ...


Interesting Question though ...


Which Chinese Dissidents went to Jail for Sex Crimes ... ???

I find this article unoriginal.

Assange is a Western dissident, he does not enjoy the soft-power of being a Chinese one. His cause may be noble and it moved a Russian to suggest that Assange deserves a Noble Peace prize. However, the forces that determine his fate are powerful and merciless.

Teilhard, does anybody trust in so-called Courts of Law?


What we need is Courts of Justice.


You know very well what's going with your young man Manning.


You don't find it deplorable? 


If there was justice in your country he'd be  treated like a hero.

Where there is only Anarchy, and NO Laws, there will NEVER be "Justice" ...

With love, from me to you.

Under the draft bill, the Royal Mail and other postal services could be asked to retain "anything written on the outside" of items for up to 12 months so they can be accessed by the police, security services and HM Revenue and Customs.


But a Home Office spokesman said only information relating to the "communications data of mail — who sent the letter to whom, when it was sent and the origin and destination" would, potentially, be stored.

Please keep us informed.


I find tv waste of time and some days it does not get switched on at all.


I used to get newspaper delivered but stopped it, really not worth the effort.

A climate-skeptic mining heiress just bought a fifth of our liberal press! Money Mouth So it's obviously gonna take a more conservative lean.

I'm watching the video trailer for Episode 9 of Julian's show The World Tomorrow. The journalist interviews Pakistani political activist Imran Khan. The guest complains that country's government is a US puppet! He denounces the government war on his country's people, forty thousand of whom have died as a consequence. Pakistan, he says, is a hired gun used to kill America's enemies!

As someone who delivers newspapers for a living?


I literally put my life on the line to make sure that the news goes out.


Three inches of powder on the road?


Blinding rain storm?


Livestock in the road?


Illegally-parked construction equipment?


Reckless lorry drivers?


Half the time I go to work, I don't know if I'll be coming back in one piece.


The least you can do is read the frikkin' paper.
