St Paul’s in-the-Camp defies Eviction Notice

Bank of Ideas

Bank of Ideas

The 24-hour deadline passed Thursday evening and the camp was still there.

In serving the Notice, two people were injured, one requiring hospital treatment.

Friday morning in what has to be seen as the most audacious action to date it was announced a bank office block had been repossessed. The former UBS building had been taken. A press conference was held in the conference room.

The Bank of Ideas is open for business.

Is this what David Cameron meant by the Big Society?

One of the unexpected side effects of the camp has been to expose the City of London as a Rotten Borough, a state within a state. Where global corporations elect the councillors. It has its own police force, functions as a local council, and yet is exempt from Freedom of Information requests.

Why the City of London Corporation supported Crossrail

Anyone who has any remaining doubts, see the front page headline story in The Times (Friday 18 November 2011). Under increasing pressure not to raise the fuel levy, a tax on fuel, the government will drop the increase and instead cut benefit payments to make up for the loss in revenue. The poorest in society are to pay the rich to drive around in their gas guzzling monsters.

The camp is not obstructing the highway, is not effecting local businesses, but when has facts got in the way of power and greed?
