Julian Assange’s mother takes to Twitter to reply to our article
Yesterday, we urged Julian Assange to end his near year long stay at the Ecuadorean Embassy in Knightsbridge. It has cost around £4.2 million to police and is in our view a ludicrous waste of money and an example of the irresponsible arrogance of a man who has breached his bail terms.
In response, the Wikileaks founder’s mother took to Twitter to respond to our points (copying in Prime Minister David Cameron for his information). We publish her 7 tweets below in the order that they came in:
“Julian shouldnt [sic] be billed 4 UK embassy watch bill, Sweden should. UKGovt [sic] should be charged for breaching human rights”
“@AlexWeir1949 @David_Cameron Julian didnt [sic] flee anything…..he recieved legitimate asylum from political persecution.
“@AlexWeir1949 @David_Cameron By its political persecution of #Wikileaks editor,the UKGovt has exposed itself to the world”
“@AlexWeir1949 @David_Cameron UKGovt has revealed itself to be a protector of criminals & corruption #Pinochet #USwarcrimes”
“@AlexWeir1949 @David_Cameron There is nothing simple about the #Assange #Extradition- riddled with political corruption”
“@AlexWeir1949 @David_Cameron #Assange #Extradition -Get the facts – not political spin – http://justice4assange.com”
“@AlexWeir1949 [David Cameron not copied in] You are very uninformed old chap. Probably not your fault but best not to comment till you are…”
“I didnt publicly state the case was political till I thiroughly [sic] investigated facts & evidence. I believe in true justice”
“I was not a mother who backed her children when they were in the wrong. True Justice requires objectivity & impartiality”
We have offered Mrs Assange a formal right to reply. We are happy to publish opposing views on virtually any subject on The Steeple Times and will keep you updated as to whether she decides to put pen to paper.
