Julian Assange and Lord Janner are very similar sorts
Julian Assange and Lord Janner are both well-known individuals. They both face charges relating to alleged sexual assaults and they both think they’re above the law.
On Friday morning, Lord Janner – a man perfectly capable of making hundreds of public appearances and claiming vast sums in expenses despite allegedly suffering with dementia, failed to turn up at Westminster Magistrates’ Court and thus incurred the wrath of the presiding judge. In court, District Judge Emma Arbuthnot told Janner’s lawyer: “Stop messing around. I’m warning you that as time progresses I’m going to turn to the prosecution and say, ‘Let’s get a warrant to have him arrested. Let’s not waste time’… Lord Janner will appear in court today even if I have to have him arrested”.
Though he did eventually appear in the afternoon, Janner’s arrogance is akin to that of Julian Assange – whose attempts to evade justice have cost the British taxpayer some £12 million thus far – and as time progresses, what becomes clearer is that these two men are very similar sorts. Someone: Get this contemptible pair a room and preferably make it a jail cell.
