World: When Julian Assange gets bailed out, HE GETS BAILED OUT

  • According to the bail conditions set by the lower court, Mr. Assange must spend every night at the mansion, Ellingham Hall, a 10-bedroom Georgian home on a 650-acre estate owned by Vaughan Smith, the wealthy founder of the Frontline journalists’ club in London.
  • A quote from the New York Times’ story on Julian Assange getting bail • Pointing out that uh, wow, Assange is apparently going to be spending the next few weeks in a fancy mansion an hour outside London. While he has a curfew, has to wear a tracking device and will have to stop by the police every day, he effectively upgraded from a jail cell to a mansion. We want his friends, because they somehow get him very sweetheart deals. source
