I'm particularly puzzled by this one:
It is false and defamatory to suggest that "Tommy Robinson" ever took a photo on the steps of the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
The only person who can possibly be defamed by that, it seems to me, is the far right agitator Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (alias Tommy Robinson), and the only way in which it can be defamatory is if the court-- rather improbably, to my mind -- is persuaded to the civil standard that the allegation he took a photo from that position is likely to bring upon him the hatred, ridicule or contempt of right-minded people who read it.

I see we are also told that
It is false and defamatory to suggest that Julian Assange has ever tortured a cat or dog.
However, nothing is said about his possible proclivities for firestarting and persistent bed-wetting.

Is this omission significant? The public has a right to know!

You know what? I care so little about Julian Assange that I couldn't even be bothered to read through his list.

If you want an interesting read on Assange, pick up a copy of The Secret Life: Three True Stories of the Digital Age, by Andrew O'Hagan, who was originally hired by him to ghost-write a book about him. Really eye-opening look.

I would have thought someone who depends on the media like he does would know better than to make a list like that. “Confidential legal communication. Not for publication.” - Who would know that disclaimer wouldn't work.
"What? Someone leaked information about a site that prides itself on leaks? Who would DO such a thing??????"

Hmm, there was one that they had nothing to do with pizzagate. Their site has a page on it.
