I'm a bit confused by the repeated BBC news reports that most people in the USA want Julian Assange charged with treason. Is the US a province of Australia these days? (I don't keep up with foreign affairs as much as I should.) I do wish, though, that Mr Assange would stop appearing in "a white, open-necked shirt". He should realise that it's winter in this hemisphere! If he doesn't watch out he'll catch his death, and save the Swedish prosecutors their labour. And what will the robin do then, poor thing?
