    Ashley Peacock still locked up

    Human Rights are not a negotiation.

    They were now faced with more negotiations, and more waiting time.

    “I am really disappointed that Ashley is the one missing out,” Taylor said.

    “We have been working for almost five years to get to this point and from Ashley’s point of view he’s been further damaged by the system, with more traumatic stress, more damage physically.”

      It could be worse. A lot of people his position end up in a shithole boarding house and $300 a week in their bank account.

  2. Good God, I know we’re just a small dot in the world political scene, but are other countries going to accept being dictated to by Pompeo/Trump over Iran?

    Is our foreign policy, and all the world’s, going to be determined by Washington?

    Collectively, the world can tell the USA to fuck off! Shouldn’t our government be quietly promoting a collective middle finger for the idiots in the White House?

      “Shouldn’t our government be quietly promoting a collective middle finger for the idiots in the White House?’

      Yes.

      Remember our finest hour?

      • Anne 2.1.1

        Agree 100%.

        I’m sick of this sycophancy where Trump’s America is concerned. He’s a tyrant, a despot and the most backward looking leader of all time. He and the shambolic band of philistines he has gathered around him should be treated by the rest of the world with the contempt they deserve.

      • Stuart Munro 2.1.2

        Our finest hour is yet to come.

    • Draco T Bastard 2.2

      Collectively, the world can tell the USA to fuck off!

      And that is what the Rest of the World should be doing.

    • One Two 2.3

      The White House doesn’t call the shots…

      Neither does POTUS…

      Neither does congress. .. etc
