Turning The Tables

Julian Assange, him of Wikileaks fame, has criticised a UK publisher of...erm... leaking draft copies of his autobiography without approval. No, really:
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has accused a UK publisher of a breach of contract for releasing drafts of his autobiography without his approval.

Mr Assange said in a statement: "The events surrounding its unauthorised publication by Canongate are not about freedom of information.

"They are about old-fashioned opportunism and duplicity - screwing people over to make a buck."

He said Canongate had acted in breach of contract and personal assurances that the draft would not be released without his permission.

It's hard not to laugh.


  1. I have been larfin' all day long, this miserable little prick - wonder if he has yet perceived the irony?
    Probably not, they don't do irony do they, they all take themselves far too seriously, imo, Jules and all his mates at the Graun + readers should be endlessly pilloried and mocked and worse......... .

  2. I might laugh at the posturing of the messenger (or publisher of the messenger's messages) but I'm pleased that there is a website such as Wikileaks.

  3. Business... is business...
