Lib Dem Business Secretary Vince Cable has stated today:
I have sympathy with the emotions that lie behind it. Some of their recommendations arent terribly helpful, but thats not the point. I think it does reflect a feeling that a small number of people have done extraordinarily well in the crisis, often undeservedly, and large numbers of other people whove played no part in causing the crisis have been hurt by it. So thats the source of the injustice.
He has vowed to tackle the greed of executives and their pay – even Ed ‘nostradamus’ Milliband has issued a warning that the St Paul’s protest should act as a warning and ignored at one’s peril (that quite Sodom and Gomorrah stuff from Ed).
However our beloved leader David Cameron has done nothing but belittle the protest and it’s activists:
The idea of establishing tents in the middle of our city, I don’t feel is particularly constructive……….protesting is something you, on the whole, should do on two feet, rather than lying down – in some cases in a fairly comatose state.
Obviously Mr Cameron has read the rule book on protesting and feels that the occupy lot are cheating – somewhat ironic from a Government whose main perpetrators personal fortune has probably been made by cheating ordinary folk.
