Charonqc provides another podcast about Assange,

"Lawcast 174: Carl Gardner on the Assange Extradition

Today, by way of further analysis and to complement the podcast I did with Julian Assange’s lawyer, Mark Stephens, last Friday, I am talking to Carl Gardner and look at the law in more detail on the bail and extradition aspects of the case and examine the position under European law.

Isn't that Dennis Ryan from Ryan's Fancy? He lives in Halifax, away from Ireland a mere 45 years.

Fun clip tho', and he ain't wrong

Gerald Kauffman makes an interesting speech, here.

"...This change in the law would never have been proposed if it were not for the case of Tzipi Livni, the war criminal daughter of a terrorist father, who was scared off coming to this country because of the danger of an arrest warrant being issued for her. She was jointly responsible for the slaughter in Gaza in Operation Cast Lead in which 1,400 people were killed, including 300 children, in a war in which 14 Israelis were killed, some by friendly fire. It is bizarre that a major change in our criminal justice system is being made at the demand of one of the most discredited regimes in the world."

Lots more in the link
