In the press and the media last weekend there was much speculation as to the mental and physical state of Julian Assange, who claims to have been under house arrest for 500 days and had sought refuge in the Ecuadorean Embassy, where he asked for, and was subsequently granted, political asylum.
Mr Assange claims he fears that if he is extradited to Sweden to face charges of rape, he will then be extradited to the US to face charges of trying to scupper America, with the prospect of a long term in jail or the death sentence.
So if you're looking for evidence of Mr. Assange's mental state he is an attention seeking prima donna unable to face up to the possible consequences of his own actions.
And as for the physical? Well poor old Julian is confined to the Embassy, which comprises two floors of an office block, he sleeps on a camp bed and has a temporary shower installed in his room. Probably has a bucket for nighttime calls of nature too.
He has been provided with a treadmill and a sunlamp as he is not allowed into the open air.
So what did you expect to see when he stepped out onto that balcony?
When last pictured he gave the impression of being rather tall and slender, so given his incarceration I certainly expected him to look even more slender, possibly even frail.
But no, Julian pulled the net curtain aside to reveal a glowing countenance and a definitely rounder figure.
Perhaps like Pooh Bear he is eating all of his hosts honey?
I only hope when the time comes for him to leave the embassy he douesn't get stuck in the doorway.
