Can anyone explain to me what the tented protesters outside St Paul's are against? Or what they are for? The press tend to describe them as "anti-capitalist", but what does that mean exactly? Are they against money, or property? I am confused.
They once had a likely spokesman, who wrote to The Times saying "Sir, I wish to protest most strongly about everything. Yours, Spike Milligan".
My background is in travel and tourism. I am Chairman of the UK trade association for a £2 billion 'cottage industry', the B&B and Guest House sector (The Bed and Breakfast Association - see www.bandbassociation.org), and publisher of Hospitality Today magazine (www.hospitalitytoday.com). I live in Bruton, a historic little town in glorious Somerset countryside.
