The almost three months in England is coming to an end and ego is, once again, peeping over the parapets at the larger wide world after a stint of being otherwise inconvenienced and it would appear that the first peep of that larger wide world is, in actual fact, close to home. It is the idiosyncratic, hypocritical, characteristics of the British ruling elite that give food for thought and in today’s Guardian I get to read “Oor Wullie” assuring Ecuador “that Julian Assange has a double guarantee that he cannot face extradition from Sweden from to the US if he were to face the death penalty or his human rights were to be breached,“ which, of course, means if he faces the death penalty.
Well, to we get the picture now? This, of course, has nothing to do with rape charges in Sweden, but everything to do with getting Mr Assange to the United States where he will not face the death penalty, but rather a rather long prison sentence. Time to put my head back behind the parapets. At least, until Friday, which is when I finish working here.
