And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee..

So wrote John Donne in his Meditation XVII. What many forget is that Donne was installed as Dean of St Paul's Cathedral in the City of London in 1621, a position which he held until his death ten years later. Looking at images of the people encamped around that great building I wonder what Donne would have done.

I have just read this freelance blog which speaks of, and analyses the camp from direct experience. It makes for a refreshing break from the turgid and political journalism. which has recently assaulted our intelligence.
