Are you allowed to carry things in your hands when your handcuffed? He could have a lock pick in that book or a knife or weapons, and why are the police smiling

Please UK out of Europe, UK should be ashamed, attitude of dictorship country.
When a country put's in risk basic human wrights they should be brought to justice for crimes against humanity.
USA are a bad example, UK is following bad examples, maybe they should creat a prision in Cuba like US did.
Go out of europe and become the 53 state of USA, how low can a country go......
Europe is land of compreension, human rights and freedom, UK aren't europe.

Maduro is a suposed dictator, but at least there Guaido dosent face life in prision and freely gives is opinion's.
In USA and UK that is impossible......

Eventually this would happen sooner or later..........

Failed to appear in court? So basically a majestierial court decision, with a potential of 12 months in prison or something similar. That's a minor holding charge and he's obviously going back to the USA for trial

After being stuck in a confined space I hope he is used to it because the us has a nice safe small room for him with no distractions for him to worry about no tv no internet basic food choices and no visit from Pamela anderson

If you do or do not believe Assange was the real deal - this will set you straight either way:
How dare the masses take their mind of this theatrical madness: Now People - refocus your attention this way: Welcome to the Met Police - not your average Cops:

Poor guy. it looks like being cooped up inside for so long has made him sick and completely nuts. why the UK government deemed it necessary or legal to subject him to this is beyond me but I lost all confidence and/or respect for them years ago. I'm just waiting for the riots to begin. Not over this, obviously. People forgot about Assange long ago and I've always said that he should have been a man and taken his punishment while he was still in the public eye, had their respect and would have been able to control the narrative. Somehow I doubt we'll ever hear from him again
poison and shite
Britain has become quite a grim Communist/Fascist hybrid slave state. Over the next decade it will become a genuine dystopia, assuming it isn't one already.

Who is Julian Assange? - BBC News Wikileaks founder Julian Assange 1 day ago   03:05

Some see him as a reckless 'hacktivist' - others think he's a campaigner for truth.

Julian Assange lived in the Ecuadorian embassy for seven years and is the man behind whistleblowing site Wikileaks.

Now he's been removed from the embassy and arrested by UK police. But why was Assange there in the first place?
