Julian Assange

He's finally leaving the Ecuadorean Embassy, after Sweden drops charges against him. He's a deeply dodgy, narcissistic spunk-bubble. As someone in the 'Guardian' pointed out some time ago, it is deeply ironic that he evaded extradition to Sweden, a country with one of the best human rights records in the world, by hiding in the embassy of Ecuador, a country with a very poor human rights record. I bet the Ecuadoreans are glad to see the back of him.

There was a time when "I'm just going for a leak" meant you'd probably taken too much beer on board (preferably Boddingtons) but this joker leant a whole new meaning to the term. He also messed things up by confusing everyone as to how you pronounced his surname.

He is a real creep. In my NSH opinion.

Has he left yet? Last I heard, the Swedes had dropped charges, but the Met were still saying they would arrest him upon leaving the embassy for skipping bail.
It's later than you think!

True - I assumed he was leaving, but possibly not.
