“Is there nothing sacred?” “Bwahahahaha! Are you kidding me? This ain’t about God, man! This is about US, man!”
As senior figures from St Paul’s met with City of London Corporation officials over Friday’s unexpected announcement that the cathedral would be closed, for the first time since the second world war, over health and safety concerns, camp residents were talking of bedding in for months. Christmas is an aim for some, others say they want to hang on until next summer when the capital hosts the Olympic Games.
If the cathedral remained closed for the duration of the protests, cancellation of its renowned Christmas services and carol concerts would come as a great disappointment to many.
“Wow, man! A twofer! We get to shut down capitalism and shut down Christmas at the same time! Far out, man! I mean, like, totally Obama, man!”
