I have to say, this whole Wikileaks thing has certainly revealed some things I didn’t think we were going to get thrust in our faces in such an obvious fashion. Not the leaks themselves – they’re too numerous and there’s much too much that’s genuinely horrifying for me to do it justice by chatting about it here (maybe I will in future) – but in the way the countries of the word have banded together to help me fill out my complete ‘yes, I would live there’ list.
See, I never really wanted to live in the US, and now they’ve revealed that they’re open to allowing journalists to call for the assassination of someone then yeah, I’m not up with that. As for politicians doing the same? Wow. Also: Sarah Palin. Hmm. Even the Canadians said something twatty, so they have to be struck off the list now.
The Swedes aren’t helping by trying to lure Assange in for questioning on a rape charge that was dropped months ago. I think it’s pretty obvious to anyone with a brain (1.3% of the population of the world, apparently) that he’ll be on an unmarked cargo plane to an undisclosed location before his feet hit Gothenburg’s ground. So Sweden, much as I love it, has to go.
Australia? Let me down. Britain? Still shit. France? French. Spain? Doing well in trying to arrest the CIA dweebs, but I never wanted to live there anyway. Russia? Hah! See, I’ve noticed something. And it scares me. All of these names are dropping off the list and leaving me with fewer options.
And the one option remaining is Switzerland. Because they haven’t behaved like dickheads in all of this. Sigh. But that probably has to be struck off the list due to the fact that I don’t have enough money for them. The bastards. DIDN’T EVEN WANT TO LIVE THERE ANYWAY.
