More Good Men Take A Stand (In The Wrong Place)

Hello Tap,

Well done to Right Rev Graeme Knowles, the Dean of St Pauls and Dr Giles Fraser, St Pauls Cathedral Canon Chancellor, for both resigning their positions over plans to violently evict the protesters from in front of St Pauls Cathedral.

When push comes to shove and as men-of-the-cloth, they have had to make a choice – who do we really support? a) the authorities and the money lenders, or b) the teachings Jesus Christ, the protesters and all of humanity. They have both passed the test with flying colours. They may now be unemployed, their Church of England careers ended – but they leave with their dignity, integrity and self-respect fully intact. They have set us all a great example.

If more people in all walks of life – especially the military, the police and all those in public office – were prepared to make a similar moral stand, putting the welfare of others before their own position and gain, refusing to be a part of, or contribute to, actions which are clearly morally wrong, then humanity would surely not be in such a terrible mess. There is hope for us yet!


UPDATESt Pauls is the wrong target, the demo there a set-up by the bankers trying to deflect attention from their holding Britain to ransom with vast debts. The demo should be at N.M.Rothschild in The City.

    This protest seems so peaceful. Why did St Pauls feel the need to lock their doors? I saw words on tents asking( What would Jesus do?) I don’t think he would lock them out. He might have invited them in and spoken to them. The ones who walked away from the church are( ten feet tall) in my eyes. If the powers that be are violent towards these people, it will show how they fear their own downfall. And they will fall down!

  2. Perhaps other church members might want to recall Dante’s words: “The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.”

  3. Wealth Destroyers

    Several governments have tried to democratise the City of London but all, threatened by its financial might, have failed. As Clement Attlee lamented, “over and over again we have seen that there is in this country another power than that which has its seat at Westminster.”(16) The City has exploited this remarkable position to establish itself as a kind of offshore state, a secrecy jurisdiction which controls the network of tax havens housed in the UK’s Crown dependencies and overseas territories. This autonomous state within our borders is in a position to launder the ill-gotten cash of oligarchs, kleptocrats, gangsters and drug barons. As the French investigating magistrate Eva Joly remarked, it “has never transmitted even the smallest piece of usable evidence to a foreign magistrate”(17). It deprives the United Kingdom and many other nations of their rightful tax receipts.
