    Strikes me as more Mel Gibson, but I take your point.

    Assange is quite obviously paranoid. That said, it is also no doubt true that people are out to get him. It must be difficult being the literal embodiment of an aphorism.

      A tweet from Wikileaks earlier today: "Guardian shunned at UK press awards: back-stabbing doesn't pay."

        Does this really surprise anyone? It fits with everything his former colleagues at wikileaks have said about him (that is, the ones who left to found their own site because they found him secretive and authoritatian).

        He clearly has a messiah complex and a manichaean view of the world. And those qualities very often line up with cheap anti-semitism.

          Assange has been arrested at the Ecuadorean embassy.

            Hate to nitpick but this might be a more appropriate thread. Anyway...

              I dunno, it's the rapist who's been arrested, rather than his fanclub.

                    I'm happy to stick with rapist, thanks.

                    We don't yet know what he's been arrested for, do we?

                      Breaking bail, I think. Plus a story that it also at the request of the US

                        Breaking bail would be related to the rape charges, no?

                            he is also threatened with extradition to the US

                              Mr Assange, 47, had been in the Ecuadorean embassy in London since 2012, after seeking asylum there to avoid extradition to Sweden on a rape allegation - which he denied and was later dropped.

                              But he still faces a lesser charge of skipping bail in 2012 and he says this could lead to an extradition to the US for publishing US secrets on the Wikileaks website.

                                    Agreed, it clearly is possible.

                                      confirmation of the extradition. And remember Chelsea Manning is in prison for refusing to co-operate with Assange extradition proceedings

                                        He's emerged as Robert Wyatt. I did not expect that.

                                          He should be extradited to Sweden of course. And he shouldn't be extradited to the US

                                              I think the phrase on this is - go ahead and sue.
