Oh the irony

Wikileaks arsehole Julian Assange has been wikileaked himself and boy is he pissed:

Well, hello, irony: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange today condemned his British book publisher for releasing drafts of a much-anticipated memoir without his approval—but he won’t be returning the £500,000 ($779,000) advance he received months ago:

British publisher Canongate announced that the book, billed as an “unauthorized autobiography,” will go on sale in stores and online Thursday. Canongate – which paid the 40-year-old Assange for the rights to the memoir last year – said that Assange began working with a ghostwriter on the book, but later backed out and tried to cancel his contract.
