1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    @Seeker_UK I accept that Murray seems to have a bias/agenda, but he does put his findings across very well and in a very informed manner. I'm not a legal expert either, nor was I in Court (few people are allowed in according to the reports), but I can use the information I find and read to form my own opinions: it stinks of corruption. This is no longer just a political plot, but the UK legal system is now implicated in this injustice.

    Whilst I disagree with some of Craig Murray’s observations on some things, he is undoubtedly bright and has knowledge of the inner workings of the state and you have to ask why he has faced multiple expensive legal battles for his views on various subjects, the latest is on the Alex Salmond issue, there come a point when you have to wonder just how free speech is in the U.K. if the price of speaking up is bankruptcy, ok we may not use novichock but if the end result is people frightened to speak the result is the same.

    Thanks for the links. It’s important to have detailed coverage.

    But, from the latter piece: ‘The professor, who testified via video-link from Bradford in the English Midlands...’

    Ooh, they’ll not be happy with that!

    Disgraceful that there is no coverage of this on BBC , in any of the broadsheets, in fact it appears to be a vow of silence across all media. US administration must have been putting a LOT of pressure on our govt to keep this buried.

    It’s been in the Times on 8, 10, 14 and 15 of September.
    Guardian has also covered it.

    The South African lawer Stella Morris, who's had two children with Assagne in the last few years, was interviewed by Victoria Derbyshire on BBC News this morning. I only caught the last few minutes of it. She said it was wrong to imprison Assange, because he highlighted war crimes. She also thought he would be freed.

    I haven't been following the case, but read an assessment which included quotes from John Pilger. Apparently the prosecution are getting nowhere and the judge is bored. The person who wrote the assessment said Assange wouldn't be extradited.

    I certainly hope so.
