Depends how tastefully it’s done, but probably millions. Unless it’s so utterly far fetched that it defies belief.
The UK cannot afford to set a precedent by invoking the Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act of 1987 of the embassy. Expect a lot of public upheaval
if that happens. Not to mention among Ecuador’s allies are Russia, China and Iran... And most of their Latin American neighbours. What kinds of
chain reaction would this set in motion?
Furthermore, they cannot allow the embassy to be attacked. It is their responsibility to keep the place safe. I know here in Melbourne China has an
embassy in one of the city’s wealthiest suburbs - Toorak (about 5km [3 miles] from the CBD). There is strictly ‘no parking’ anywhere near the
building and Federal police are on a constant patrol of the area, 24/7. They drive around in their red AFP cars. If you park there, as the company I
work for had a job a few houses away, within minutes the Federal police are on the scene. I can only imagine the security would be far tighter at this
embassy in London due to the circumstances.
If an attack did take place on the embassy it would be akin to launching an attack in Ecuador. The US, UK and its allies would certainly want
absolutely no trail or clues pointing to them being behind it.
Perhaps this could be the event that kicks WWIII into action? US, UK, Australia and its allies want Assange, almost by any and all means. Ecuador, and
by extension its allies in Iran, Russia, China and so forth should side with and defend Ecuador.
