A number of readers have emailed me to enquire why I didn’t include Vladimir Putin on the list of “Usual Suspects” donors I should approach in support of the Assange cause. (See 11/feb post)
The simple reason is that it would be just too impolite to rain on Puty-pute’s parade and list his name alongside that of some of the world’s greatest lunatics while he is doing such a terrific job hosting the games in Sochi.
Another reason might well be that the Russians have got all they want from Assange (and now Snowden) and it is clear they have no intention of forking out one single rouble more than the 34,758,000 roubles ($US10 million) that has been already agreed to be paid to each of them.
But I’m not so sure about that one …
Its such aѕs you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp so mսch about this, likе yоս wrote the guide in it օr something.
I think thаt you just сan do with some % to drive the message home a little bit,
but instead of that, that іs fantastiϲ blog.An excellent read.
I’ll definitely be bacқ.
Thank you for your favourable comments!
