Julian Assange has been arrested on a US extradition warrant.
Julian Assange has committed no crimes on UK soil (except breach of bail, which is a separate matter). The charges in the US are political matters. In essence Assange published information related to US lies and war crimes (e.g. the infamous massacre committed by laughing Apache pilots) committed in the course of an illegal invasion of Iraq. None of this is contentious. Plain matters of fact.
It is horrible indictment of the absolute gutter the UK political class lives in that they have permitted some thugs to drag Assange from the embassy and bundle him into a van. Such actions are worthy of Nazi Germany.
