Does anyone have any bar napkin idea's they've come up with at 3am over a scotch?
I'd suggest... $2 million dollars
You hire 3300 people and pay them $300 for 2 hours work
You buy 3300 identical outfits/costumes with a very specific full head/face mask
You give every one of them a disposable camera with a flash
You arrange it like a flash mob, all people need to be within 10 minutes of the embassy at a set time on a set day
When the minute occurs, all people rush to the embassy in their costumes and clog the streets and loiter
Julian runs out of the embassy in an also identical outfit and jumps into the crowd, while the people continually use their disposable cameras and take a constant stream of flash photos in the outward direction of the embassy. It will distract the police and they wont be able to focus on specifics in the mob, possibly it will cause issues with cctv as well..
When a whistle is blown everyone scatters at full speed
Some of them run straight to waiting cars and speed off (decoys)
Some just run to the subways
Some jump on buses
Some just lay in the streets
As for Julian?... well he's never heard from again.. .who know's what/where he goes
Could he be smuggled out – or placed in a crate or bag that has diplomatic protection? As far-fetched as this sounds, it has been tried before in the UK. In 1984 an attempt was made to abduct a Nigerian politician, Umaru Dikko, from Britain by placing him in a crate and attempting to ship him back to Nigeria. Those involved tried, but failed, to label the crate correctly as a diplomatic package or bag. The Vienna Convention says: "The diplomatic bag shall not be opened or detained." But such a package is not immune from scanning, or from thermal imaging, which would pick up body heat from inside any such package. In such circumstances, UK authorities may be entitled to open the package and seize the concealed Assange.
