Occupy

One of my favourite stories that didn't get much traction at the BBC last week was this one: Only one in 10 St Paul's protesters stay overnight.

I ain't too big on 'corporate greed' myself, but I'm not sure how it's different to any other kind of greed we turn our nose up at but recognise as being an unavoidable part of human nature, other than that corporate greed succeeds in getting politicians to favour a few people at the expense of others, through bailouts and tax breaks and kick-backs and cushy contracts and favourable regulation etc etc. I wouldn't care how greedy some dude in a pinstripe suit was, and the greedy dude in a pinstripe suit wouldn't be a problem in my life, if it wasn't for the fact that there's a politician passing laws which enrich him.
