Where in the world is Julian Assange now that he’s been released from prison?Answer: He is spending the holidays at Ellingham Hall, the 650 acre, 10 bedroom home of Vaughan Smith, a British journalist (who is wealthy by independent means, obviously) and founding member of Frontline Club.

Smith wrote for the Independent why he chose to shelter Julian Assange:

Having watched Julian Assange give himself up last week to the British justice system, I took the decision that I would do whatever else it took to ensure that he is not denied his basic rights as a result of the anger of the powerful forces he has enraged.

I resolved then… that I would never abandon Julian.

It certainly appears to be a lot nicer than the basement of a Victorian jail.

(Presumably the inside will look different when Assange is there...)
