Authorities at GCHQ, the government eavesdropping agency, are facing embarrassing revelations about internal correspondence in which Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is discussed, apparently including speculation that he is being framed by Swedish authorities seeking his extradition on rape allegations.
The records were revealed by Assange himself in a Sunday night interview with Spanish television programme Salvados in which he explained that an official request for information gave him access to instant messages that remained unclassified by GCHQ.
A message from September 2012, read out by Assange, apparently says: “They are trying to arrest him on suspicion of XYZ … It is definitely a fit-up… Their timings are too convenient right after Cablegate.”

It's certainly typical of the media and 3 letter agencies to do these kinds of things to get people out of the way. To be honest I'm really surprised Julian is still alive.
I figured the British would have kicked down that door a long time ago and extradited him to Sweden. I know if he does end up being sent over there, we will probably never see him again.
We already know about Ardin (aka Bernardin) and her CIA connection. We know both the women didn't make allegations until after they learned of each other sleeping with Assange. We know one of them attempted to delete evidence from Twitter whereby they had posted a statement about the great night they'd just had. We know they conspired to sell a story to the tabloids. We know about Sweden's prison-loan agreement with the US and how it can be used to mitigate the EU's extradition law restrictions. We know Irmeli Krans prepared a statement for Sophia Wilen accusing Assange of rape and that Wilen refused to sign it. We know the broken condom that Anna Ardin produced had no DNA from Assange on it, in fact it had not even been used.
We don't need GCHQ 'chatter' to figure out that something #ing fishy is going on. William Hague's sudden, desperate eagerness to extradite Assange also serves as an indication that neocons in the US and UK have been conspiring against him.
Ardin is not only a liar, Ardin (and Krans) tried to coerce Wilen into claiming she had been raped - Wilen refused to sign the statement.
The rape charge is nice compared to the spy charges that might carry a death sentence.

As a British taxpayer I do not agree with our taxes being spent on 24/7 policing outside the Embassy where Julian currently is. The police being there on the off-chance Julian might leave the Embassy! What a waste of resources.
The UK can't even extradite Abu Hamza, who is more of a serious threat than Julian.
Anyone can see he is being fitted up, UK government are an embarrassment.
