The Bishop has written a piece for today’s Evening Standard on the situation at St Paul’s, which you can read online here.
“The original purpose of the protests, to shine a light on issues such as corporate greed and executive pay, has been all but extinguished – yet these are issues that the St Paul’s Institute has taken to heart and has been engaged in examining.
“The time has come to change the setting. Now that St Paul’s can function again, albeit on a limited basis, the cathedral wants to help recapture the serious issues.”
In this, the Bishop has put forward his and the Dean’s plan to hold a St Paul’s Institute debate within the Cathedral on the issues at the heart of the protest. Both the Bishop and Dean will also be outside St Paul’s on Sunday morning to meet and engage with the protesters.
