Good things come to those who are prepared to stick to the job for the long haul


Do I look good in Orange?

Tick tock, we are now all waiting with bated breath.

The wheels of the justice system grind slowly, and occasionally slip a cog, but on the whole those who are willing to submit to the complete process get what they deserve.

A judge is set to deliver his decision on whether Kim Dotcom and his associates are eligible for extradition to face charges in the United States.

The German-born internet mogul and his former business associates – Mathias Ortmann, Finn Batato and Bram van der Kolk – are accused of making US$175 million (NZ$257 million) from what US authorities say is a criminal conspiracy based around file-sharing website Megaupload. ?

Since Dotcom’s dramatic arrest in 2012, the US has been asking to have the men surrendered to stand trial for a string of copyright-breach related charges.

Ten weeks of legal arguments for and against extradition wrapped up at the end of November.

A hearing will be held in Auckland tomorrow where Judge Nevin Dawson will deliver his decision.

It is ominous for Dotcom that there is a hearing scheduled. These days they issue an email of the judgment. If there is a hearing that can’t be good news for him.

If he is extradited then I am thinking of holding an Orange Jump Suit “Goodbye Fatty” party. I wonder if Vaseline would sponsor it?

I feel sorry for?Mathias Ortmann, Finn Batato and Bram van der Kolk. They’ve been played by this chump and now they face the prospect of years in jail if they are extradited.
