Ecuador grants asylum to Assange, angering Britain

Ecuador granted political asylum to WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange on Thursday, a day after it said Britain had threatened to raid the Ecuadorean embassy in London to arrest the former hacker.

Britain has said it is determined to extradite him to Sweden, where he is accused of rape and sexual assault...Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague said that London would not allow Assange safe passage out of the country...Britain has said it could strip the Ecuadorean embassy of its diplomatic status, which would expose him to immediate arrest by the British authorities.

"The United Kingdom does not recognize the principle of diplomatic asylum," Hague said. "There is no ... threat here to storm the embassy."

Well, the FCO is a tributary of the religion of perpetual outrage and a worshipper of the EU(SS)R.

It tells MPs and Ministers what to do and say.

While Hague cleverly refers to the murder of Yvonne Fletcher from the Libyan Embassy - criminal under English law - he is obeying the diktat of the European Arrest Warrant.

Man with two masters and neither of them up to any good.
