Audio clip:

The government here says the decision by Ecuador to grant Assange asylum is a 'disappointment'. The WikiLeaks founder now confined to the embassy here in London, avoiding deportation to Sweden to answer questions over sexual assault charges.

One of Britain's top lawyers, Lord Alex Carlile, saying it's a bad move all around, with only one possible outcome.

(Carlile) "The Ecuadorean government has behaved disgracefully in this matter and so has Mr. Assange, but the moment Mr. Assange leaves he will be arrested and he will be deported to Sweden."

London saying they may take away the the embassy's diplomatic immunity status.
