    "Previously on Sunday, there was concern about Assange's well-being when Wikileaks tweeted out what some suggested were the "dead man keys" that are allegedly the encryption codes for highly damaging secret documents to be uneviled in the case of Assange's death....

    Not the only strange attempted ["alleged state-sponsored"] blocking of international electronic communications in the UK today:

    "RT's Bank Accounts Blocked In The UK; Russia Foreign Ministry Slams RBS' Decision

    While we have yet to get an update from Wikileaks on the status of Julian Assange's internet connection at the Ecuadorian embassy in the UK, which as reported overnight was allegedly "severed" by an unknown "state party", moments ago Russia's RT (originally Russia Today), a television network and website funded by the Russian government, has allegedly seen its bank accounts blocked by the UK, according to a tweet posted moments ago by the station's editor-in-chief, Margarita Simonyan..."

    "UK Prime Minister Responds To Blocking Of RT's Bank Accounts...

    So, to address the allegations of censorship coming from the highest possible level, moments ago UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who is currently scrambling to reach a "Hard Brexit" deal that does not implode sterling and lead to a surge in gilt yields, said that the decision by NatWest to withdraw banking services in Britain from state-funded Russian broadcaster RT is a matter for the bank, her spokeswoman said on Monday...

    ...There was no mention that RBS, and thus NatWest, are both technically wards of the state ...and that any decision they make, especially one with such wide-raning political implications, has certainly had the preclearance of the government."
