  1. Re: Julian Assange: Why the world needs WikiLeaks

    Ridiculous! He can't be charged with espionage if he's not a citizen of the country. I wouldn't rely on WikiLeaks for any information. It's my understanding that anyone can edit it.

    Agree, it's a ripoff. They tried to introduce it here many years ago and there was practically rioting in the streets. The adverts don't bother me, I just zone out when they are on.

    When you and I were young Alastair we ate food which was in season only. Nowadays I often wonder what chemicals they are using to make all food available all year round.
