    I think Wikileaks is great. I don’t know if Assange is but Wikileaks is definitely a great service to mankind

    Does anyone REALLY believe that he can get a fair trial in Sweden after all that has gone on? Does anyone REALLY think that hostile comments by the Prime Minister and other politicians doesn’t influence judges and juries?

    Anyone who believes that is in cloud cuckoo land.

    It is clearly now a political process, and he will be subjected to a political trial if he is extradited.
