Julian Assange's extradition from UK to US approved by home secretary

Priti Patel has approved the extradition of the WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange to the US, a decision the organisation immediately said it would appeal against in the high court.

The case passed to the home secretary last month after the supreme court ruled there were no legal questions over assurances given by US authorities over how Assange was likely to be treated.

While Patel has given a green light, WikiLeaks immediately released a statement to say it would appeal against the decision.

"Today is not the end of fight," it said. "It is only the beginning of a new legal battle. We will appeal through the legal system; the next appeal will be before the high court."

    The point is that your ancestry means jack. I'd rather have someone who has been here as a first generation immigrant who wants to participate in my country's progress than someone whose parents and grandparents were already lazy bums that had nothing better to do than mooch off the work of everyone around them.

    Good thing that the massive effort involved to actually move the the US by definition weeds out all the lazy bums!

    Depends on what you mean by progress, it can take different directions. The progress that the Chinese and Indians have in mind seems to be their colonisation of the rest of the world. They have numbers on their side.
