By Binoy Kampmark, published 30/4/2013

For Julian Assange, the the 'economic blockade' has been nothing less than a censorship device threatening press freedom.

Having broken the law by jumping bail, Assange is now nothing more than a common criminal.
His reasons for refusing to go to Sweden are simply not convincing, credible or cogent, but they do prevent him fronting up like a man, to that country's justice system.
As for private financiers, they have a perfect commercial right to refuse to provide service on the basis of risk, or if the intending customer, violates their limited, low base moral/patriotic values.
Nothing happening here violates press freedom!
Given bona fide journalists, by validating their information prior to publication, and not as an oops, (sorry about that 99), after the fact, don't threaten real people's real lives!
Bona fide Journalists continue enjoy press freedom!
Julian is a clear and considerable financial risk, who had no compunction in costing his friends considerable sums of money, by deliberately, knowingly and dishonourably jumping bail?
On a clearly fallacious pretence, of being afraid of extradition from Sweden.
The fact that the US would face far less difficulty in extraditing him from the UK, than Sweden, exposes this risible, disingenuous, mendacious verisimilitude, for the, "male bovine manure", it is.
A very wise leader once remarked, that you can fool some of the people all of the time!
Demonstrably, the author and Assange's dwindling support group, fall into the latter, intellectually challenged category?
