Assange’s mum confirms he will run for Senate
blog It’s 2013 already. So do we have an election date for the Federal Election? Check. Do we have major parties already hitting the airwaves to make their election pitches? Check. Do we have final confirmation that rogue Internet activist Julian Assange is planning to make a bid to be elected to the Australian Senate? Check. Yes, indeed we have confirmation, from Assange’s mum, no less. How professional. The Sydney Morning Herald reports (we recommend you click here for the full article):
Christine Assange confirmed her son’s candidacy on Wednesday after WikiLeaks tweeted the news. “He will be awesome,” she said.
Great. And if that isn’t the kind of endorsement every Senate candidate looks for (your mum saying that you’re “awesome”), then we don’t know what is. Now if only Assange could convince the British Government to release him from the Ecuadorian embassy in London so he could come to Australia to campaign, that would be great. Mmmmkay? On the other hand, we suspect that if Assange was elected as a Senator then he would automatically achieve some kind of diplomatic status that would allow him to return. Could be the ultimate trump card? Game on. Pity how Antony Green thinks he has “next to no chance of being elected”. Still, for our money, we hope Assange gets in. It would certainly make Communications Minister Stephen Conroy’s life more interesting.
