Julian Assange

I really can't understand the fuss about Julian Assange, or the number of people who seem to support him. To me he seems to be an attention seeking, egotistical misfit who really should get a life.

We all know there are dark things being done by governments all over the world but that is no excuse for posting classified information on the internet. Instead work to change the system to a more open and accountable one.

But to then hide in the embassy of a country led by an attention seeking, egostistical misfit who puts opponents in jail, while attacking the UK, USA and Sweden, smacks of the worst kind of hypocrisy. See the pattern?

I really can't be arsed saying anything more about the pillock.

I didn't realise that Sweden was this authoritarian hellhole, where torture was routine and innocent people are banged in jail for no apparent reason.

Thankfully Julian Assange pointed me in the right direction, or alternatively he's full of shit.

The key questions on issues of liberty tend to come down to "who gets to decide?". Is Assange really a better answer to that question than anyone else?

He likes people to think that he is, but this is anarchy recycling the process of tyrrany in all of its glory IMO.

And as a result of his indiscriminate publishing of classified information several democracy campaigners in totalitarian states, such as Bahrein, have been identified by their governments and imprisoned. The man's a twat.
