    Stating that Ecuador is in contravention of the Geneva conventions that that there is a legal basis to do so is NOT evidence of any kind that the UK is poised to do any of the above.  

    It is a diplomatic letter staking out a legal position that it would be within the UK's rights to do so.  The Guardian link says nothing at all about being poised to storm the embassy.  This holds about as much water as the slander on Sweden that it runs a politically corrupt judiciary.
