U.S. Embassy Cable: “Mayawati – Portrait of a Lady.
Key phrases include:
“…eccentricities, whims and insecurities”
“…employs nine cooks (two to cook, the others to watch over them) and two food tasters”
“…When she needed new sandals, her private jet flew empty to Mumbai to retrieve her preferred brand”
“…she constructed a private road from her residence to her office, which is cleaned immediately after her multiple vehicle convoy reaches its destination”
Assange vs. Mayawati, 1-0
Key excerpts from Mayawati’s defense:
“The owner of Wiki leaks appears to have gone mad or he has joined hands with our opposition parties to malign my government."
“Mr. Assange should be sent to mental asylum by the country he belongs to and in case if there was no place for him, he should be sent to Uttar Pradesh. We will put him in the Agra mental asylum.”
“Those who have said that I have 9 cooks must be lounging in my household somewhere and washing dishes, that is why they claim to have such detailed knowledge of what happens in my house.”
Assange vs. Mayawati, 1-1
“…(CM should) admit her error and apologize.”
“Should she fail to do so, she is welcome to send her private jet to England to collect me, where I have been detained against my will.”
“…I would be happy to accept asylum, political asylum, in India–a nation I love. In return, I will bring Mayawati a range of the finest British footwear.”
Assange vs. Mayawati, 2-1
What entertainment in international media – It’s almost like kindergarten kids arguing back and forth – I wonder what will be the defining game point!
