    :confused:

    Dont worry about it man.


    In other news

    "Mr Assange offered the police testimony and questioning when he was in Sweden, but they declined.
    He asked the prosecutors permission to leave the country, and got it.
    So why this now??
    Why not just hold the questioning in a UK police station, over a video link as is done in so many other cases??
    Why could not the Swedish police fly over and get the questioning done?
    I don't think Mr. Assange would disagree with this, especially not since he gave himself up the moment the correct paperwork was issued, and walked into a UK police station...

    I think this is becoming more of a persecution, than prosecution, especially since there are indications in the current police reports in Sweden, that the accusations may be false.

    Also remember that they have yet to charge him with anything - all it is as of now, is a warrant for questioning - and Sweden do have a history of renditions, for which they have even been convicted in the EU courts."

      Great new story re Sweden.

      WikiLeaks: Swedish government 'hid' anti-terror operations with America from Parliament

      Well, isn't this beautiful. Swedish authorities insisting on dirty operations with the Americans be kept informal in order to keep them secret. What does this say about the Swedish government?

      i) He cannot walk free until the Swedish appeal is defeated. They are in court tomorrow re this issue.

      ii) They haven't secured £200,000 in cash yet. They have promises to pay - but converting that to cash (court refused cheques) takes time.

      Once i & ii are met - he will be free to live under effective house-arrest.

      Yes, I've never seen it called "Team" until your post in the Wikirebels thread.
      Oh, you haven't? Well that's what they're all calling it on IRC, and it's on various websites.

      Google it. You find a UK proxy (an intermediary) so it'll connect to the website via a UK internet IP and it'll think you're visiting the website from the UK.

      It seems that the UK opposed the bail of Assange and NOT Sweden!

      Interesting

      "One of the conditions for the original bail, granted on Tuesday, is Assange reporting to a police station in Bungay, Suffolk, every day at 6pm.

      It turns out that there isn't a police station in Bungay and the nearest police station is Beccles – which is only open between 2pm and 5pm and closed over much of Christmas."

        Probably because it's become something of a media frenzy.
