What Would You Do at St. Paul's?

Here's a crisis communications exercise still unfolding, from the plaza in front of St. Paul's Cathedral in London. What would you have done when Occupy London protesters showed up with their gear to harrass the nearby London Stock Exchange? Seems that St. Paul's Canon Chancellor, the Rev. Dr. Giles Fraser, wasn't any too clear about that.

Good-hearted, yes. But tactically savvy, apparently not. Dr. Frasher is now the former chancellor and Occupy London's tents remain out front. A case study in contemporary tensions facing someone wanting to do the right thing.
