Bulingdon Club & Basher Bish tell Occupy London protesters to leave
London's mayor has joined the Bishop of London in calling on
anti-capitalist protesters to quit their camp outside St Paul's
Cathedral. Boris Johnson, who has met cathedral and police officials,
said protesters had made their point and "have to go." Earlier, the
Rt Revd Richard Chartres said the camp's presence threatened to
"eclipse" the issues being raised. Occupy London Stock Exchange
(OLSX) said it was open "to dialogues" but intended to remain at the site.
St Paul's man ready to quit over evictions
ST Paul's Cathedral is so divided over the Occupy London protest on
its doorstep that its canon chancellor has threatened to resign if it
moves to evict the encampment. Giles Fraser, who is responsible for
the cathedral's relations with the financial institutions of the City
of London, is understood to be prepared to quit
Siege of St Pauls to end in court (actionable lie - it is not by any
means a seige)
Tom Harper and Benedict Moore-Bridger - London Evening Standard -
26th October 2011
Lawyers are launching a court bid to clear the tent city that is
"squeezing the life" out of St Paul's Cathedral.
The City of London Corporation believes it has discovered legal
grounds to end the anti-capitalist demonstration which forced [that
is another actionable lie] St Paul's to shut its doors on Friday for
the first time since 1940.
Protesters vowed to fight the move all the way with "a team of
solicitors and barristers" supporting them, claiming: "This is a
civil liberties issue."
The 200 tent "occupy London" camp has made headlines worldwide since
being set up 11 days ago and has split senior figures at the Church of England.
Councillors will be briefed on the eviction plans tomorrow at its
Guildhall headquarters in the heart of the City.
A legal source said: "In cases like this, it is imperative to get the
arguments right first, otherwise the protesters will use every single
delaying tactic under the sun. Hundreds of hours have been spent on
this on all sides.
"The City is not against protest, it is against camping. It is
squeezing the life out of the local area."
The application for a High Court injunction, which is set to be
announced following a top-level meeting on Friday,will centre on the
ancient thoroughfare of Church Yard, which runs along the north side
of the 300-year-old cathedral.
Some of the protesters' tents have been pitched on the pedestrianised
road and block access to both Ludgate Hill and New Change.
Blocking public roads is illegal under the 1980 Highways Act which
decrees one must be able to "pass and be passed".
However, the legal challenge has been delayed by the ancient and
highly-complex laws that govern the City, parts of which date back
2,000 years to the age of the Romans.
City of London lawyers have been poring over medieval maps and deeds
and even make mention of records from the time of the Magna Carta
(spot the irony).
Cathedral clergy are understood to be divided over moves to evict the
camp. Canon Chancellor Giles Fraser, who is said to be supportive of
the right to protest, is understood to be prepared to quit if St
Paul's takes legal action against the demonstrators.
A spokeswoman for the protesters said it was a "very sad day" and
insisted they would fight any legal challenge to remove them.
Naomi Colvin said: "We are here to exercise our democratic rights. It
is a civil liberties issue.
"We are aware of the complexities surrounding the City of London
Corporation's legal position and we are prepared for it. It is
extremely disappointing that the Cathedral and the Corporation have
decided to take this stance, especially as there are a lot of people
in the Church of England unhappy about what is going on."
She added: "We are extremely grateful to Giles Fraser for what he has
said. He's a very good man."
She said the camp would be contacting their solicitors Bindmans and
barrister John Cooper, QC, who they said had already pledged support
for their cause.
Today mothers and young children on school half-term were due to join
the tent city. Almost 100 families are set to visit the camp to meet
activists and take part in "learning projects" during an event called
Occupy Half Term.
