The times, they are a-hinting that Jules might walk soon

A UK Foreign Office minister has offered cupboard-dwelling WikiLeaker Julian Assange access to medical attention if he leaves Ecuador's London embassy.

Sir Alan Duncan told Parliament this afternoon that the British government is "increasingly concerned" about Assange's health.

"It is our wish that this can be brought to an end and we'd like to make the assurance that if [Assange] were to step out of the embassy, he would be treated humanely and properly and that the first priority would be to look after his health, which we think is deteriorating," Sir Alan told the House of Commons earlier today.

"Of course, he's in the embassy of his own choice," the minister added.

Sir Alan's statement about Assange's supposedly deteriorating health is intriguing for Assange watchers.
