BBC doesn't mention 'Occupy's' urine and feces in St. Paul's Cathedral when praising 'Occupy' and Obama's election as the two most optimistic signs about the US.

"The Occupy London Stock Exchange camp is now 59 days old - the same age as the Occupy Wall Street camp in Zuccotti Park was when it was taken down. The survival of the camp outside St Paul's Cathedral owes something to the Americans in the UK who have been among its keenest supporters.
Visitors pose for pictures as if it was a tourist attraction. Workers in sharp suits walk quickly past, and others simply point in surprise - it is not every day you see 200 tents pitched outside one of the capital's main landmarks.
The camp is closely modelled on Occupy Wall Street. Though it began a month later, it is still going almost a month after its New York counterpart was dismantled with violent exchanges between police and protesters.
"There is a great deal of solidarity with camps within the movement in New York and Oakland and other places," says Anthony, a New Yorker who now lives in London....Liberals outside the US have long taken a dim view of America's influence in the world, particularly since the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Similarly, George Por, 67, a Hungarian-American in London says Occupy Wall Street "has made me proud again of being American".
"In the 60's, I was an organiser of the student movement in Hungary. Since then, I've never stopped yearning for a time of large-scale awakening to the need for social, economic, and political justice," he says.
Numerous Americans I spoke to in London expressed a similar sense of optimism and a similar feeling that perceptions of America are changing,
- thanks first to the election of Barack Obama
- and then the Occupy movement."...
