Assange Denied Internet Access: More Skripal Fallout?
The reason being given by Ecuador for cutting Assange off from communicating with the outside world is that he was pissing off Spain over the simmering Catalunian separatist movement.
In a statement, officials said Assange’s recent posts “put at risk” the good relations Ecuador maintains with nations throughout Europe and had decided as of Tuesday to suspend his internet access “in order to prevent any potential harm.”
But it would be deliberately obtuse to not also suspect that the Europe-wide reaction to the poisoning of Skripal and his daughter on British soil is not also a factor. The fact that the Brits have put together a coalition of every single Western democracy is something that is a tectonic shift.
It obviously remains to be seen if the expulsion of Russian diplomats was a “one-off.” or if there is a continent-wide recognition that we can no longer turn a blind eye to what Russia has been doing.
[Assange] also chimed in a decision by the United States and more than a dozen European nations to kick out Russian diplomats on Monday following Moscow’s alleged poisoning of an ex-spy in Britain.
“The manner of and timing of Russian diplomatic expulsions is poor diplomacy,” he wrote.
Following Assange’s remarks, a British minister called him a “miserable little worm” and said it was regretful that he remains in Ecuador’s embass
This would mean that pro-Russian stooges like Assange are soon to face their Day Of Reckoning. Also the Brexiteers. Then the neo-Nazis in France, Poland, Italy, etc.
Look for them to be called out by name in the coming weeks. And then for Assange to be yanked, screaming and clawing, out of the front door of the Ecuadorian Embassy, to be delivered into the waiting hands of MI5.
