It is not that the coverage of Julian Assange has been bad. It is that there has been none at all. And the reason for that is the ferociously media-backed candidacy of Sir Keir Starmer for Leader of the Labour Party. As a Commonwealth citizen resident in the United Kingdom, Assange should contest Starmer's seat in 2024. If he is unable to do so, then George Galloway, who brought down even Roy Jenkins, ought to step up to the plate.
Ours is the 2020 Vision of a new political party, a new think tank, a new weekly newspaper, a new monthly cultural review, a new quarterly academic journal, and so much else besides. I will be standing for Parliament again here at North West Durham next time, so please give generously. In any event, please email email@example.com. Very many thanks.
