I saw a more detailed article a bit ago on it and it said that Ecuador gave him citizenship on December 12th and then sent a request on December 20th for the UK to treat Assange as an Ecuadorian diplomat and all of the protections that entails. UK rejected that a day later.

I know there's not much more to say, but I think it's pretty funny that the title is also the contents of the 'article'. Is this someones tweet that was published as an article?
How much longer can the UK threaten him with arrest for breach of bail triggered by a closed procedure in a foreign country for a now-deemed-non-existent crime? is there a limitation period -- 10, 15, 20 years, or will he be hounded in perpetuity?
If one were in his position, how would one scheme a safe escape from the UK?
I can imagine scenarios to leave the embassy building (mob action, disguises...), but then what?
And right back to where he started. Its contingent on the UK to decide Assange's fate and their is no indication that they have changed their mind.
I don’t know why, but the first thing I searched for after reading this was: the CIA runs Ecuador.
Turns out, they do. I figured the overlords of the drug trade would want to make their home near the place of production. This is just theater.
