    The anti-capitalist protest forcing St Paul’s Cathedral to close is a ‘big charade’ with only one in ten tents occupied overnight, the Daily Mail can reveal.

    Footage from a thermal imaging camera shot by a police helicopter revealed that the ramshackle camp is almost completely empty during the cold nights.

    It suggests the majority of the 300 ‘defiant’ protesters at the cathedral return home or to hotels after dark to sleep in warm beds.

    Corporation of London councillor Matthew Richardson said: ‘It’s incredible. The overnight monitoring of the site by the police showed that 90 per cent of the tents are unoccupied.

    'It just shows most of the demonstrators don’t have the courage of their convictions and are just here to make trouble.

    ‘Leaving your tent here overnight is a good way to do it. It’s a phantom camp – a big charade.’

    The "brave, principled ones" are nearly absent from Colorado Springs since the snowfall. Strange happenings???
