I thinks its time the UK government stopped being a US lapdog and let Julian assange leave for ecuador, how much has the and future continuing police presence cost the UK taxpayer?

So it's not rape if you are a pain-in-the-######-whistleblower?

 

Assange can leave the embassy any time he wants to. He just has to face the courts in Sweden and then he's a free man and can live in Ecuador if he wants to.

Julian assange hasn't been charged with anything, the Swedish police just want to ask him a few questions. It's the fact that the Swedish government refuse not to extradite him to the US where he could end up like Bradley manning or in Guantanamo prison that he won't go to Sweden.

The UK haven't refused to extradite him either but he was okay to stay here. He even applied for Swedish nationality without worrying about being extradited. This only became a problem when he ran away from some very serious questions.

 

In fact in order to be extradited from Sweden, it would require the permission of the British and Swedish governments whereas if he stayed here it would only need the permission of the British courts. And this is the country that has signed an extradition treaty with the US that is so one-sided that it even embarasses Americans.

 

Let him rot.
