London Occupy protesters didn’t issue official demands

I think the Guardian has got its latest story wrong. My information – based, admittedly on the basis of one phone call just now, and I don’t generally have the inside track on what’s going on – is that someone acting unilaterally sent these demands to The Guardian; these don’t represent mainstream demands of Occupy. But I feel that at the end of the day it’s not a disaster: everything will come out in the wash eventually. Despite mis-communications, we are seeing major new scrutiny into something that has remained invisible for a long time. Questions are being asked like never before. And that’s a good thing.
