Total bail bond on Julian Assange is £200,000 in cash. The high-profile supporters who posted it may now never see it again.

@ggreenwald Also, let's not forget, what he is fleeing is extradition over sexual allegations in Sweden.

Seems Assange didn't warn people who put up his bail he was going to breach: – crappy way to repay a good deed.

A niggling question that went unanswered yesterday: has any of us actually seen Assange in that embassy?

@insidestories Guardian would fight/campaign if US tried to extradite Assange for cablegate. Our editor is on record saying same.

Astute and wise @NickCohen4 column on Assange, WikiLeaks and self-destructive paramoia:

@petersbeaumont "credible evidence" being a one-line email from *Stratfor*?! Jesus wept.

RT @petersbeaumont: Benn characterised last ten days as "solitary confinement" for Assange < *headbutts desk repeatedly*

Good stuff from @alexhern on today's Assange statement, and the reasoning behind the asylum bid:

@ChrChristensen @alexhern Nope – she's a supporter. Think some people just assumed she was a lawyer (I didn't watch statement).

@medialens I just watched it – knowing the case you're right as to what she was talking about. But think Peter's error was an honest one.
