"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Surprise, Surprise

After days of Sweden taking the flak for opposing bail for Julian Assange it's emerged that it was our own CPS.
It had been widely thought Sweden had made the decision to oppose bail, with the CPS acting merely as its representative. But today the Swedish prosecutor's office told the Guardian it had "not got a view at all on bail" and that Britain had made the decision to oppose bail.
Lawyers for Assange reacted to the news with shock and said CPS officials had told them this week it was Sweden which had asked them to ensure he was kept in prison.

Hypocrisy and lies from British officials.  I'm getting worn down by the sheer scale of deceit and manipulation over the past decades and can barely raise an eyebrow at this latest news.  I've had enough of them all.

  1. Heavily lent on by the Yanks it seems even the new Government is blackmailed by the CIA.

  2. I read that the CPS answers to government ministers, not to Parliament, this needs changing. There's been too much politicisation of the criminal justice system - police, cps, acpo, npia, courts. No government will change it because it isn't in their interests to do so.

  3. OR is spot on, GV - they are holding him for as long as they can to allow Obamalama's trained goons to bring charges of spying against him - then it will be extradition to America and a lifetime in jail after a show "trial"!

  4. Huhne the Loon didn't like it at all when Gary McKinnon, the UFO nut, was threatened with extradition to the US.

    That was then - I wonder what position he'll take on the Assange situation.

  5. Probably do a swap deal, BJ - we keep McKinnon and you can have Assange. Stranger things have happened.

    The govt is in it up to its neck, Spidey, not just this but other things too. Nothing they do shocks or surprises me.

  6. Nothing about this on the Beeb, they were still citing Sweden as being opposed when reporting Assange being granted bail.

  7. I think we're all agreed now that the BBC is part of the problem - their news spin adds nothing to people's real knowledge of events. I didn't know the CPS were now answerable only to the Executive - that's the sort of change they should be reporting on.
