    I am split down the middle on this one, my anarchist roots say hero, but as some people have rightly pointed out there's more to it, the lives he's potentially put at risk inadvertantly from his own political or personal vendettas.
    There are many intelligent US tv series which depict i believe realistically what lengths people will go to, to smear and ruin people or groups, especially when you **** the US of A off.. on that basis i wouldn't be surprised if it's all made up.
    Whats more interesting is how this pans out, Sweden considers reopening the rape case but Assange has to be on their territory i believe, and there's the stronger pull from the US. But then trump could well be pulling him into his office and pouring him a beer.

    Wow. You are so far off the mark that I just don't know where to start.

    Do you actually base the real world on your experience of US TV series???

    As Asange is obviously an 'enemy of the state' in America, ergo... he must be our enemy too. That's how it works, innit. ;)

    Pick Donald and he will increase the debt, increase your taxes, but cut them on the super rich, cut environmental regulations, cut education, cut healthcare but he will be tough on immigrants so that gets your vote.

    Your about as diaphanous as they come!

    Tough on immigration. Yes that would get my vote.
    As long as he sosnt pick on immigrants (hate that word)
    People because of their skin religion or nationalitie.

    If he targets criminals and illigals. Then he would have my support

    Definitely diaphanous!
    Or even some kind of crazy mixed-up individual.

    Fortunately, I understand what you were trying to say.
    The immigration policy could be tough, but not rigid.
    And the immigrants should not be the target of politics.

    But that is exactly what happens when people like Trump (and yourself) cannot distinguish between the people and the policies.
    It is exactly what happens when the Home Secretary employs a bus to drive round telling immigrants to go home.
    It is exactly what happens when the immigrants are targeted by politicians.

    Super rich need to pay their tax. This needs to be a joint assault from all country's to stop loops and offshore accounts.
    But be clear the super rich create jobs.
    I've got more of a problem with the BBC paying Gary Lineker £40,000 per MOtD of our money.
