Oft overlooked in this discussion is the EU penchant for the more overbearing system of civil law, as opposed to the common law of the UK. I feel the UK will have more individual liberty out from under the EU's attempts to impose their inquisitional system.
I wonder whether Julian Assange would think so...
He'd have to stop thinking about himself first and that's not likely.

Why should he stop thinking about himself first, when he is the victim of a system whose purpose is to destroy him?...

Which one is that, the Swedish, the UK or the US?

The US, of course. Sweden (which, by the way, has dropped its charges against Assange) and the UK just follow orders...

So the entire US' purpose is to destroy Julian Assange?

Not the entire purpose, of course. But the US means to destroy Assange for what he did and for what he represents. And as a warning to other whistleblowers. But it shows the superiority of the Anglo system of justice, as compared to that which is based on Roman Law...

...as though the UK did not have an independent judiciary.

Show trials are for the likes of the Soviet Union.

Independent of what? Judges in the UK are part of the oligarchy. In political issues they do not follow the rules of law, they follow the oligarchy's interests.
