Britain dares to go where no man has gone before…

“Earlier, the UK Foreign Office warned it could lift the embassy’s diplomatic status to fulfil a “legal obligation” to extradite the 41-year-old by using the Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act 1987.

That allows the UK to revoke the diplomatic status of an embassy on UK soil, which would potentially allow police to enter the building to arrest Mr Assange for breaching the terms of his bail.”

Take a look at the provisions of the Vienna Convention 1961 to which Britain is a signatory:

Article 22

    1.The premises of the mission shall be inviolable. The agents of
the receiving State may not enter them, except with the consent of the
head of the mission.
    2.The receiving State is under a special duty to take all
appropriate steps to protect the premises of the mission against any
intrusion or damage and to prevent any disturbance of the peace of the
mission or impairment of its dignity.
    3.The premises of the mission, their furnishings and other
property thereon and the means of transport of the mission shall be
immune from search, requisition, attachment or execution.

Opinion:

Which means the British law DOES NOT and CANNOT supersede the Vienna Convention.

If Britain tries to enforce its Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act 1987, it is in direct violation of the Convention. Something which no other country in the world has dared to do; not the Chinese, not the Russians, but nobody.

Ecuador has behaved properly in this matter. Granting asylum in the face of jurisdictions that have been warped by the voracious need of the USA and its need for blood.

The fact that Sweden has refused to avail itself of the opportunity to conduct its investigation abroad instead of pursuing extradition, shows that they have absolutely no interest in justice over the matter with which Assange is charged, rather their intention is obvious; to get Assange in a position where he can be extradited to the USA.

The Americans had their nose bloodied by the Wikileaks releases, and they are determined to be the bully and exact revenge.

Note, that Britain has said it will arrest Assange if he leaves the mission.

“the means of transport of the mission shall be immune from search, requisition, attachment or execution.”

If Assange is transported by mission transport, he can’t be touched.
