    Default Julian Assange is standing for election as an Australian Senator in 2013...

    ...and is starting his own political party called "Wikileaks".

    All I can say about this:
    the hubris
    he'll know how many Aussies support him after the election.

    Assange: confined but still confident

    Julian Assange wants to form a Wikileaks Political Party - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Assange looks to contest Senate election
    Brexit comes straight from hell. Everywhere it goes it causes disharmony, turbulence and misery. I think Brexiteers themselves must have some form of mental illness.

    Is he still in the London Embassy of the Republic of Ecuador ?
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Aye, he won't be able to do much canvassing.

    If he wins, he'll have his own Diplomatic immunity, right?

    He can just walk out of the Embassy

    Wouldn't he have to actually travel to Oz in order to file papers and whatnot?

    He's latching on to such random causes these days, next thing he'll be popping up in the campaign to save Seanad Eireann.

    Actually he should seek Ecuadorian citizenship and then get his mate Pres Correa to give him a diplomatic title, thus rendering himself immune from UK "justice".

    Not necessarily.
    In August 2012 Hamas MP and Deputy Speaker Ahmad Bahr appeared on Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV and demanded all Muslims to annihilate the Jews.
