Do not use if seal is broken

Julian Assange has fled the politically-motivated attempt to extradite him to Sweden (and thence to the USA) and has been granted asylum in the Ecuadorean embassy. Leaving aside the the British government's ludicrous posturing about stripping Ecuador's embassy of its diplomatic status (leaving all our embassy staff around the world at risk of suddenly being dragged out and hanged by governments that don't like us much, or simply of having their embassies burned over their heads), it has said that it will not grant Assange safe passage from the embassy out of the country.

Place your bets, please, on the likelihood of a large diplomatic bag being hauled by a diplomatic courier (or two) out of the embassy and onto an Ecuadorean aircraft.....
