Occupy London, or not…

Many protesters in Occupy London chant, “All day, all week, we’ll sleep on London’s freezing streets. Solidarity”… well, maybe, not so much.

A hat tip, here to gillie, a frequent commentator on our blog, and a frequent visitor to the chatroom. Gillie, I hereby dub thee our RadioViceOnline foreign correspondent.  Gillie sent me this link today, and, you must view it as the photos are priceless.

It seems that Occupy London has decided to encamp outside St. Paul’s Cathedral to the point that last week St. Paul’s was forced to close.  This is the first time that St. Paul’s has closed since the Blitz, and, it may be closed for several more weeks until the protesters leave.

But, it seems that many of the protesters are leaving, at least at night when it is, well, cold.  An independent thermal imaging company took thermal images of the “camp” on Monday night and found that only 3 tents actually had any people in them. 

The rest…forget solidarity…it’s darn cold, so I’m going home.

    The one confort we can take on both sides of the “giant lake” is that once the weather gets cold and the first snow flakes fall, the OWS protesters WILL clear out.

    If you visited the Chattroom, you would have read this a day early.? You don’t know what you are missing?

    Fair weather protesters! Not much dedication there. The really funny thing is, if there was an entertainer coming for a concert, they would sit out there day a night for a week.
