"What about the cheese makers ?"

Postby Samoan » 19 May 2017, 20:30

Just been watching Channel 4 TV News where Julian Assange has been heckled on his Ecuadorian balcony with a cry from a member of the audience below of, "What about the cheese makers ?"

It's not to be taken literally. It means anyone connected to dairy products.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Aren't the Met standing by to feel his collar on other charges the moment he steps off Ecuadorian soil and onto a London street?

EDIT: Not being privy to Jimbo's mysterious sources or personal private internet, I just checked the Gruaniad website (the best us regular folk can do). As they have breaking bail conditions charges all ready to go, Mr A. isn't out of the woods (or Ecuadorian diplomatic protection) just yet

A bail jumper does not a rapist make.

And the rape charge was a set up from the get go.

A charge that was dropped due to lack of evidence in the first place and the miraculously reinstated when the Merkins wanted to spank him for spilling their beans. All a pure innocent coincidence though I expect :?

Sexual offenses are terrible.

They evoke moral rage and panic everywhere, and they also stick on you for the rest of your life.

And they are the easiest to manufacture.

Don't believe anybody here claimed it did.

That said, he's not got off the charges because they've decided he's innocent, just that as things stand, they've decided it is going to be almost impossible to prosecute him.

The Guardian wrote:
Sweden’s director of public prosecutions, Marianne Ny, made the surprise announcement on Friday morning that the country’s authorities would no longer pursue the investigation into a rape claim by a woman in Stockholm in 2010.

Ny’s decision had not been taken because of any judgment regarding guilt or innocence, she said, but because prosecutors had concluded that “all prospects of pursuing the investigation under present circumstances are exhausted”.

The woman who made the initial rape allegations would seem to disagree. As would her lawyer.

Doubtless your mysterious "sources", personal private internet and the voices you hear in your head all tell you different.

He has wasted seven years of his life. The stinking little coward has been hiding behind his bed in a strange embassy for five years , and now wants to claim false imprisonment. Who has falsely imprisoned him? The Ecuadorians? He is nuts. If he is so sure he is innocent he should have the moral fibre to face his accusers. And all this " Now we are going to see an avalanche of secret documents " bollocks makes me ill. I wish someone would shoot the innecfectual cunt.

Which is why he is holding up in the embassy.

Meanwhile, via his organization, he has exposed a lot of what our governments would prefer to be kept hidden.

If I remember the details correctly, he had consensual relations with the woman the night before, so the alleged rape would be her word against his. Regardless of the truth (only the two of them know that) it would be nigh on impossible to get a conviction under normal circumstances. However Assange believed the whole farrago was a ploy to get him back to Sweden and thence extradited to the US - where they had promised to throw the book at him.

So I'm with The Professor on this one.

And if government officials, or anyone with a good lawyer, can use "the rules" to avoid prosecution (or paying taxes) then why the fuck not Assange? He may be cramped and uncomfortable in his Ecuadorian cage but it does give me pleasure to see the government banging their heads on the bars trying to get him out. The guy has done nothing wrong. The guy is a boon to our society. Just let him be I say.
I love you.
