Assange stakeout has cost UK taxpayers £9mn
Westminster doing what it does best, wasting our money...

Quote:Policing the Ecuadorian embassy in London for over two years in order to prevent a possible Julian Assange escape has already cost the British taxpayers over £9 million, and the bill keeps growing.

The estimated direct cost of policing outside the Knightsbridge building for WikiLeaks founder that took asylum there in June 2012 runs to £11,000 per day.

“The estimated full cost including indirect costs ... would be £9.0m. The costs provided are an estimate based on averages as actual salary and overtime costs will vary daily,” Metropolitan Police spokesman told UK’s Daily Mail.

The Met Office said earlier that the bill for policing the Ecuadorian embassy between June 2012 and the end of October 2014 was £7.3 million, £5.5 million of which was spent on “opportunity costs” and £1.8 million “additional costs”.

Coppers must be loving that overtime pay. Shame it costs so much to keep that (probable) rapist on lock down.

?? You actually believe a) the rape charges and b) buy into the feminazi definition of rape?

There are lots of harder, worse-paid jobs in the world. I'd volunteer. ;)


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

Is it not rape to slip your dick into a sleeping woman? Sure they went along with and where passive to his abusive behaviour. At best he's creepy and abusive, at worst he's a sex offender if the allegations are true.

Another international criminal abusing our porous borders.

Has he even been charged yet? I thought he dodged his police interview and bailed Sweden?

The full European Arrest Warrant allegations by the way:
Quote:Unlawful coercion

On 13-14 August 2010, in home of the injured party [A] in Stockholm, Assange, by using violence, forced the injured party to endure his restricting her freedom of movement. The violence consisted in a firm hold of the injured party's arms and a forceful spreading of her legs while lying on top of her and with his body weight preventing her from moving or shifting.

Sexual molestation (1)

On 13-14 August 2010, in home of the injured party [A] in Stockholm, Assange deliberately molested the injured party by acting in a manner designed to violate her sexual integrity. Assange, who was aware that it was the expressed wish of the injured party and a prerequisite of sexual intercourse that a condom be used, consummated sexual intercourse with her without her knowledge.

Sexual molestation (2)

On 18 August 2010 or on any of the days before or after that date, in the home of the injured party [A] in Stockholm, Assange deliberately molested the injured party by acting in a manner designed to violate her sexual integrity; that is, lying next to her and pressing his naked, erect penis to her body.

Rape

On 17 August 2010, in the home of the injured party [B], Assange deliberately consummated sexual intercourse with her by improperly exploiting that she, due to sleep, was in a helpless state. It is an aggravating circumstance that Assange, who was aware that it was the expressed wish of the injured party and a prerequisite of sexual intercourse that a condom be used, still consummated unprotected sexual intercourse with her. The sexual act was designed to violate the injured party's integrity.

The defence attempt to invalidate the arrest warrant was based on a lie of his lawyer to, who claimed he had not tried to get Assange to attend a police interview.
