Solicitor and New Statesman legal correspondent David Allen Green suffered a bruising weekend on Twitter after Assange supporters took umbrage at his views on the high profile extradition case.
But the most memorable bit of the two-day war of words occurred at its outset on Saturday, when Christine Assange (aka Julian's mum) went on the anti-Green offensive...
To which Green responded:
This displeased Mrs Assange, who proceeded to post a series of tweets criticising Green and calling into question his journalistic credentials.
Mrs Assange then lent her support to the aforementioned Borat jibes with this retweet of the Twitter user behind the Photoshopped image of Green.
At this point Green went for the nuclear option: threatening to involve his own mum in the bust-up. To which, as we went to press, there has still been no response.
