I’ll admit Julian Assange’s “work” has done some good in the world. But ultimately I think he is a selfish b******. From what I understand his motivation has been to bolster his own glory and he has hurt a lot of people for no good reason. I say that because he appeared not be selective in what he leaked. Any good he’s done has been coincidental. That’s just my opinion.
Julian Assange ‘can stay in embassy indefinitely’ Rafael Correa says
UPDATE 8:20AM (AEST): THE British government has warned that a diplomatic standoff over the WikiLeaks founder could go on for years.
British Foreign Secretary William Hague said his government was obliged under its own laws to extradite the Australian national to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over alleged sex crimes.
“No one, least of all the government of Ecuador, should be in any doubt that we are determined to carry out our legal obligation to see Mr Assange extradited to Sweden,” Hague told a press conference.
Meanwhile, both Ecuador and Sweden suggested on Friday they were prepared to be patient and wait.
Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa said Assange would remain in Quito’s embassy as long as Britain refused to give him safe passage.
