Assange finds support lacking
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange says claims by Foreign Minister Bob Carr that he's been offered consular assistance, are just 'empty words'.
Assange has nine-days to make a final court submission this week, before he's extradited to Sweden to face questioning over sexual assault allegations.
Speaking from London, he has told Tim Shaw he's disappointed with the lack of support from the Australian Government.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange received a mixed reception during a carefully staged appearance on the balcony of Ecuador's London Embassy.
The 41-year-old Australian issued a plea that US President Barack Obama back-off whistleblowers.
Supporters welcomed the appearance - but some were a little disappointed he had nothing new to say.
Stuart Bocking looks at Independent MP Tony Windsor giving Tony Abbott a serve in federal parliament. He reveals the decision to place a price on carbon was the price paid to lead a minority government.
Do you have to put up with someone who snores? 40% of the population snore. The third biggest cause of marriage breakdowns. Jason Morrison reveals how you can cure snoring, and it can be fixed in a week.
Worst bloody Government we have ever had in Australia. This is a time when we need intelligent leaders managing intelligent office driving the country to bigger n better things, not this "boys club" lurks n Perks operation currently driving the ship... No winners this time, I just hope those who voted them in can see the error of their ways.Alan M Friday 22 June, 2012 - 4:22 PM
even PM Gillard statement "we would appeal for clemency",at the parliament last week should J. be extradited to the US,etc.. now, since it is not J.A intention to visit the US soon for obvious reasons, what would then be the reason for him to get there in this instance as mentionned by PM Gillard except under Governments conspiracy?grace Tuesday 5 June, 2012 - 11:58 PM
The Australian Government should be deeply ashamed.
I heard the original interview Christine Assange Followed by Carr. Carr had meanlingless soundbites, Christine was prepared and had solid arguments and truth on her side.
The... when the host offered to put Christine back on the phone while Carr was still on, he refused. Why? because she would have eaten him alive.HelenInCarp Tuesday 5 June, 2012 - 11:44 PM
Pathetic. The FOI showed the Aus gov only asked US for info to deal with public reaction and media...and everything they say about assange sounds like spin and robotic. Some representation we have...Francis Tuesday 5 June, 2012 - 7:25 PM
Hillary Clinton in Sweden. I guess to ensure nothing further goes wrong with the USA snaring Julian Assange.
Australia wake up! The Gillard Government has changed the Extradition Act so Australian Citizens can be extradited to the USA for any reason what so ever. All of the Liberal and Labor voted FOR this. The Greens opposed it.Helen McRae Tuesday 5 June, 2012 - 3:13 PM
Inspired by Corruption
Written for Julian Assange
Man in his innocence is blind to some facts,
That explain where he fits and rules how he acts.
In our race to progress we have forgotten our past,
And ignored sustainability; Oh, how will we last?
Elements of life: earth, air, water, FIRE,
Need to be preserved; not sold to a buyer.
We now need a web to capture the truth,
So Sunshine Press Men NOW spin it, forsooth.
