It is a sad state of affairs etc. But if anyone finds it in the least bit amazing at this point well you are naive.

Why thank you. I take it you have no insights to offer on why Mr. Assange is being held in solitary confinement an incommunicado like a terrorist?

"he was remanded quite properly, no matter what any of us thinks of WikiLeaks."

Thank you for answering a question I DIDN'T ASK.

Richard T

He's remanded in custody because the Swedish authorities have sought his extradition on rape allegations and as he was of no fixed abode in the UK - meaning he could not produce an address, he was remanded quite properly, no matter what any of us thinks of WikiLeaks.

I still want to know why Assange is being treated in prison like he's a terrorist, not someone merely wanted for questioning.

Is there no rule of law in this country? The courts have spine to stand up the Government over control orders, why are they so compliant here?

Richard T

For me the WikiLeaks saga has exposed the British Government's connivance with the Americans in such areas as allowing the storage of cluster bombs on UK territory, agreeing not to cause any embarassment to them from the Chilocott enquiry and the rest. The cherry on the cake is of course the Americans' reaction to little Messers Fox and Willie Hague falling over themselves to be the bestest friends to the USA regardless of this country's interests. Wee dogs sniffing their nether quarters indeed - if it wasn't so pathetic it would be funny.

Why is Julian Assange being held in solitary? Why is he being denied access to a phone? Why is he being denied access to his lawyer?

Is this normal for a remand prisoner? If this is about being arrested for questioning, why is he being held like a virtual Gitmo prisoner?
