And still the protesters are camped by St Paul's

The key text quoted by Christians is: Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's.  Matthew 22:21. This should bring about a good settlement based on moral principles.  While the protesters may have a good case against the unacceptable face of capitalism, they do not have the right to camp whether and whenever they please.  In a democratic society we have laws and regulations that take account of the needs and welfare of others. Some of the protesters seem to have no regard for the views and wishes of others.

It has been argued that as a result of the serious crisis of capitalism and the need for the socio-economic issues to be discussed, the protest camp should remain.  It looks likely that the camp will continue until the new year.

Some of those who will be involved in remembrance services at the Cathedral have expressed concern that the  protest camp probably will be spoiling their occasion.  The closure of the Cathedral last month was a bitter disappointment to visitors, tourists and worshippers.
