Democracy Dies In Darkness

Julian Assange faces 175 years in prison in the United States, or more likely death, for revealing war crimes. This is the result of the failure to rule out his extradition to anywhere, on any pretext. What if Britain had done this to Donald Woods?

Notice the silence of The Guardian, The New York Times and The Washington Post, all of which gleefully published Assange's material, but which then switched sides when it looked as if he might have contribute to the nemesis of the Clintons. And notice the silence both of Jeremy Corbyn and of the Chosen One, whom we are supposed to be so honoured to host as our Member of Parliament in these parts.

Another hung Parliament is coming, however, and we need our people to hold the balance of power in it. It has become a local commonplace that I am on 30-30-30 with Labour and the Conservatives here at North West Durham, so that any one of us could be the First Past the Post. I will stand for this seat, if I can raise the £10,000 necessary to mount a serious campaign. Please email Very many thanks.
