He's running for office in Australia in hopes of gaining some kind of diplomatic immunity that he can use to finally escape the Ecuadoran Embassy.

So he has made a campaign video of himself lip-syncing in a mullet wig.

Seems like I read about some questionable associations his party has made to try and win.

He should be arrested and shipped off as soon as he leaves the embassy. His alleged crime took place prior to becoming a political figure, so stuff it. I can't image that would cause meaningful damage to the UK/Australia relationship. And if it did, then it was a pretty weak relationship to begin with.

If he wins I'm moving to Australia. That was awesome!
