The kind of society Britain is a society where Tony Blair walks around free making millions from speeches, where they have arms and police fairs selling torture and murder devices to Third World tyrants and where men like Assange rot in prison for telling us all about it.

You nailed it.
Seems to have been a rather poor turnout in London today.
I guess those scores of thousands of pro-EU human rights supporters who filled the streets last year had other engagements today.

Journalist Julian Assange has finished his sentence for skipping bail
yet is still being kept in prison awaiting an extradition order to the US.


The west lectures China on it's human rights yet in the case of Julian Assange we have indefinite detention without charge.
First in the embassy for 7 years. Then again after his sentence on a minor charge has been completed in a british prison.

Assange has done us all a great public service by shining a spotlight on the activities of those in power.
We should support him. If Trump had any balls he'd drop the extradition order!
Expect to find him raped infected with HIV tortured and killed are simply disappeared in a US prison in the next few years.

If half of this stands up to scrutiny it's outrageous.
And not a peak in the English MSM.
I read that her husband had a financial interest in a company that Wikileaks damaged with it's revelations a few months ago, yes it is true.
Assange was the guy telling us about their corruption but even he underestimated how ruthless they are, he thought he was safe as a journalist and whistleblower.

You know the British are abusing him badly when even the US legal team complains about it...


Julian Assange was handcuffed 11 times, stripped naked twice and had his case files confiscated after the first day of his extradition hearing, according to his lawyers, who complained of interference in his ability to take part.
Their appeal to the judge overseeing the trial at Woolwich crown court in south-east London was also supported by legal counsel for the US government, who said it was essential the WikiLeaks founder be given a fair trial.

If that's all Assange did, you'd have a point.

His putting people's lives at risk at the same time ( who neither Assange nor you care about )
condemns the narcissistic creep.(y)

On the contrary, the US counter-intelligence official who was in charge of the Pentagon’s investigation into the impact of the WikiLeaks disclosures admitted in evidence in 2013 that there was not a single instance of an individual being killed by enemy forces as a result of what WikiLeaks had done.


Brigadier General Robert Carr, head of the Pentagon’s Information Review Task Force, told the sentencing hearing for Chelsea Manning that his initial claim that an individual named by WikiLeaks had been killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan was incorrect. “The name of the individual was not in the disclosures,” he admitted.
The Murderers and torturers he exposed didn't suffer any consequences.
