In an absurd twist fit for Alice in Supreme Court Land, the decision to extradite Julian Assange to Sweden was made on an interpretation of a FRENCH expression/term -- now that is extraordinary as the case was heard in the UK!
British Judges - LOL!
No doubt the arrogant French, which once feared for their language/culture, are overjoyed that it was THEIR language NOT the dominant English language spoken and written in Britain that decided the outcome in Britain's Highest Court! Furthermore, the clearly 'stacked' bench made their decision on a matter that was not raised or argued during proceedings -- a highly irregular occurrence allowing for lawyers to ask for the case to be reopened:
British legal expert Joshua Rozenberg described the development as "extraordinary''.
"It would be very embarrassing if the supreme court felt the need to reopen the case and it's extraordinary, isn't it, that they might have considered something which they gave the parties no opportunity to argue.''The LAW is an ass indeed, especially it seems when the USA desires a certain outcome. 'Upstart' Assange, like alleged leaker Bradley Manning, cannot be seen to have offended the 'mighty' civilian killing, criminal USA, which flouts numerous international laws daily.
