9. I bet the embassy staff would love to see him leave.

11. Someone's leaving Ecuador's embassy  ... but it's not Julian Assange

Kevin Rawlinson
Saturday 8 June 2013

... Ecuador is understood to be desperate to negotiate a way for Mr Assange to quit its embassy amicably and is growing frustrated with the lack of progress. Quito sources said they believe Britain is happy to leave Mr Assange marooned.

At a meeting last Tuesday between Ms Alban and Hugo Swire, the Foreign Office minister responsible for Latin America, Ms Alban is said to have asked: "What are we going to do about the stone in the shoe?"

Mr Swire's response, according to a source who was in the room, was: "Not my stone, not my shoe" ...

12. "Not my stone, not my shoe", very true.

Mr Swire represents the British government. Mr Assange is a guest in Ecuador, if an embassy is thought to be part of the country it represents. So, not his shoe.

Mr Assange is Australian, not British. So, not his stone.

I don't know why Britain would care about Mr Assange's whereabouts.

10. That's just what I thought when I saw this: hasn't this been said for two years or so?

 

"We hope and we want and we believe {and we pray for this buffoon to get the hell out of here}..."

What a tremendous farce Assange has made of his life.
