Any lawyers in the house? As I see it, he's been in the UK under threat of extradition to Sweden on a rape charge. He then took refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy seeking diplomatic asylum. Ecuador grants said asylum, but the UK insists it will honour binding agreement to extradite to Sweden. Ecuador accuses UK of trying to influence their right to consider Asssange's appeal and makes complaint at League of American Nations (or some such other body?) UK threaten to storm Ecuador embassy, having previously said it will arrest him as soon as he leaves the building. My question....how will this pan out? Will the Ecuadoreans land a chopper on the roof? Will we get an Embassy siege? It's got all the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster a few years down the line. *NOTE : This thread is nothing to do with Wikileaks or Assanges alleged crimes - I am NOT looking for any discussion to descend into political mud-slinging. I am genuinely curious to see how the end game plays out, regardless of the context and background. Not quite the Cuban Missile Crisis, but an interesting Mexican stand-off nevertheless.
