Re: It's a weird world...

And now Ecuador have made him a citizen, it's a lot more difficult for them to just give up and kick him out the door to face the music. That means losing even more face than if they'd left his citizenship alone.

That said, the Ozzies must be besides themselves with glee because he's now no longer a stain (pardon the pun) on their reputation, and the weird but allegedly potential of him applying for a political job there has now been eradicated too. I may not have that last bit 100% right because I've lost so much interest in this w*nker(*) that I don't even bother to remember most of his antics, though.

As far as I can tell from the Australian perspective, Ecuador appears to have done them a massive favour...

(*) Yes, yes, I know, if he really had been a w*nker he would probably not be in this mess, but I meant it figuratively, not literally. Go with me on this.
