Political Firestorm engulfs St Paul's

The goodwill generated by the initially welcoming attitude to the 'Occupy London' protest camp outside St Paul's appears to have been dissipated by the later intervention by the Dean, in closing St Paul's, followed by the offer of a debate by the great and the good - politicians and city representatives, to which "representatives of the protesters will be invited". The videos and articles below tell the story, from the initial interviews to the articles and commentary about later interventions and shock resignations - and a flashmob evensong sung among the campers by a local choir.
