Re: The marathon-couch-surfing champion in the Ecuadorian embassy @AC
I know that "the land of the free is the US". I had assumed every else did as well, and that they had read the original article all the way to the end. This is why I didn't explicitly state that it would be a stupid idea to try to consider a move to Norway with big wide open spaces rather than staying in an embassy where the longest walk is from the couch to the nearest door and back. It is why I didn't explicitly state that Norway's only exception for extradition is where they consider the reasons for extradition to be the result of a political act.
Also, thanks to all the downvoters, I feel suitably chastised. I apologise for:
1) mistakenly believing that Reg readers were a cut above the general population in terms of ability to make an inference from literal shorthand;
2) assuming that Reg readers actually read an entire article before voting on the comments.
3) writing a comment having drunk a triple "Armorik" single malt from Bretagne having discovered that it is the equal of some of the best Scotch ever made. [for the hard of reading I have NOT stated that it is better, only the EQUAL OF SOME and you should note that sense of taste is a very personal thing]
I take solace that readers such as dan1980 understand the ways of the world.
