Everyone knows it is really about the US grand jury investigation into the Manning leak, presumably on espionage charges.

But I am still curious, what is the punishment for jumping bail in the UK? Can he pay a fine and get on the evening train to France?

The Swedish case is closed. It can be reopened, as it was closed due to being unable to advance the case as the accused had fled to Equador. That takes time though, so I don't think it will be relevant.

will protect neither Assange nor you.

Assume nothing: That is the lesson one ought to have learned well from the last two years of Trump "media" + Brexit "negotiation" + the prior 10 years disposition of the Panic of '08, including precious Greece + 20 or so generations of indoctrination from westworld Enlightenment and the "politics of" ... avocados.

The elite to whom some persons pledge allegiance do not rule by law.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
