You asked

There is a vehicle that is allowed to park outside parliament on a daily basis which is being used by brexit remain protesters in the small parking area right by the George v statue. I would like to know the following: What special permission does this vehicle have to be able to be parked in this location? How is this vehicle allowed permission to park there? Who has authorised that this vehicle can be parked there? Who is funding the costs for this vehicle to be parked there? How can i get the same privileges to park my vehicle at this same location? If there is a fee for this permit, what is the cost of that permit?
