Assange requests asylum in Ecuador, foreign minister confirms.

"Julian Assange has officially requested political asylum and is under the protection of the Ecuadorian embassy in London"

@iankatz1000 Ecuador offered #Assange residency back in November 2010 http://bbc.in/etjJNw

I have to say, all this dashing about and running away isn't making him look less guilty.

If it was a case of looking less guilty or staying alive, I'd opt for staying alive :)

@stuartmillar159 like to think that #Assange chose the Ecuadorean embassy because it's so convenient for Harrods http://bit.ly/LcMsNd

‏@jamesrbuk Ecuadorian embassy is flat 3b, Hans Crescent. Nice neighbourhood (near Harrods), but doesn't sound roomy...

Hmmm, can you buy a Tardis in Harrods?

Or perhaps the Ecuadorian embassy is the one place you can legally obtain a lethal dose of heroin.

Mary, I guess suicide is preferable to the rest of your life in an US secure unit.
