Julian Assange Blames The Gay Jews At The Guardian: Private Eye Discussions

IN Private Eye, where Anorak’s Ed toils on weekend, Ian Hislop reports a phone conversation he had withJulian Assange two weeks ago. The piece is called A Curious Conversation With Mr Assange.

Assange was upset at the Private Eye story about Wikleaks’s Russian rep Israel Shamir. Incidentally, it was Assange who told us:
