anders behring breivik The legal systems across the world, but especially in the UK and USA operate almost entirely within the masonic hierarchy and how masons and the crown can fleece with impunity. The Queen is the patron of one of the most evil mafia's on the planet , yet seldom if ever have the press barons, like Murdoch, connected the dots.

Hardly has the hacking scandal calmed than a massacre in Norway sees headlines across the mass media about gunman Anders Behring Breivik being a freemason. He was also involved with the VILE and bigoted English Defence league and the Knights Templar. As a masonic manchurian candidate Breivik has finally cracked the bubble of silence in that the mass media has failed to connect freemasonry with millions of crimes across the globe. Something this group and others on the internet have continued to expose for many many years and a media now only catching up with the truth.

From the Dunblane massacre and mass murdering Thomas Hamilton to another mass murderer Fred West and mass murdering Doctor Harold Shipman. Only some of the most EVIL crimes carried out by masons and / or protected by masonic brothers within the police. Murdoch and his main spy man Jonathan Rees was a freemason who implicated masonic cops, bankers and taxmen to aid in the vile smearing and destruction of their targets like murdered Daniel Morgan, Sean Hoare and the Socialist party leader Tommy Sheridan who is languishing in a Scottish jail thanks to zionist mason Murdoch and his thuggish empire. Only the Guardian, out of ALL the media connected the dots, and these are only a few of the most high profile crimes.

anders behring breivik The masonic met are also implicated in the murder and cover up of Charles de Menezes and Ian Tomlinson, with the murderous cops still walking the streets after killing these innocent men. But unlike the Dunblane massacre, when the establishment used mason Hamilton's murder of schoolchildren to disarm the population, when a masonic sniper misuses a gun you don't see them lining up to demand the withdrawal of weapons from the cops? This is the masonic network at its extreme with those with power having access to an arsenal of weapons just like the Norwegian murderer , while the public have none. A deliberate unarming of a population left wide open for their mass fleecing ,bankruptcies and endless house repossessions. All of it achieved by the power from masonic judges, lawyers, bailiffs and cops who just happen to be in positions of enormous power thanks to an evil crown and the British royals hand picked selection process.

Did the Norwegian secret service have knowledge of the tons of fertilizer Breivik was ordering? Had he been a Muslim would he have gotten away with that? How about his ability to arm himself with the best guns on earth? Why didn't the secret services across the globe have anything on him? Was it that he was a brother and was able to keep under the radar protected by his masonic brothers who we know almost totally control the world's secret services for and on behalf of their backers the Zionist Israeli state that uses freemasonry to control the goyim not part of their zionist global spying network and was recently exposed during the New Zealand earthquake? The truth is starting to trickle out from a media that has been trying to keep the lid on this evil network of power for far to long. If and when they really do start connecting the dots there is much more than what they have exposed so far as that hardly scratches the surface and something we will continue to do rather than wait for them to catch up.

    The whole of the UK police force is tarnished by corrupt masons getting away with MURDER like Charles De Menezes, Ian Tomlinson, Smiley Culture and Daniel Morgan . As their victims we know more than most about the evil malicious ploys they use to steal our assets and homes on a grand scale.

    Sir Paul Stephenson turns on David Cameron

    Britain's top police officer resigns and turns on prime minister in dramatic escalation of the phone-hacking scandal Britain's top police officer has resigned and turned on the prime minister in a dramatic escalation of the phone-hacking scandal. In a carefully worded resignation speech that appeared aimed directly at Downing Street, Sir Paul Stephenson, the commissioner of the Metropolitan police, said the prime minister risked being "compromised" by his closeness to former News of the World editor Andy Coulson.

    Number 10 stressed that David Cameron had not been pressing in private for Stephenson to stand aside. But he was caught by surprise by the attack, which came just while the prime minister was on a plane en route to South Africa. Stephenson denied that he was resigning over allegations that he accepted £12,000 worth of hospitality from Champney's health spa, focusing instead on his decision not to inform the prime minister that the Met had employed Coulson's former deputy Neil Wallis as a strategic adviser. "Once Mr Wallis's name did become associated with Operation Weeting [into phone hacking], I did not want to compromise the prime minister in any way by revealing or discussing a potential suspect who clearly had a close relationship with Mr Coulson," he said.

    "I am aware of the many political exchanges in relation to Mr Coulson's previous employment. I believe it would have been extraordinarily clumsy of me to have exposed the prime minister, or by association the home secretary, to any accusation, however unfair, as a consequence of them being in possession of operational information in this regard." To emphasise the point, Stephenson went on: "Unlike Mr Coulson, Mr Wallis had not resigned from the News of the World or, to the best of my knowledge been in any way associated with the original phone hacking investigation." The shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper seized on that issue saying: "People will wonder why different rules apply for the prime minister and the Met, especially as Sir Paul said that 'unlike Andy Coulson', Neil Wallis had not been forced to resign from the News of the World."

    Senior police sources confirmed the attack had been intentional and showed the anger at Scotland Yard that Stephenson has been willing to resign over the scandal while the political class has failed to take responsibility in the same way. An ally of Stephenson said: "The commissioner thought if the prime minister is happy employing Andy Coulson, and Neil Wallis has bid the lowest price, what reason would we have not to employ him?" Stephenson had been due to appear before the home affairs select committee tomorrow. His sudden exit increases the pressure on assistant commissioner John Yates, the officer who led the phone hacking inquiry, to quit. The crisis over hacking engulfing News Corporation began to turn toxic for Stephenson on Thursday after the arrest of Wallis, who was the News of the World's deputy editor during the period when it is alleged phone hacking was widespread at the paper. Hours after Wallis was arrested, it emerged that he had worked for the Met.

    The Guardian has learned that Scotland Yard chiefs invited Wallis to apply for a senior communications post with the force in 2009, a decision Stephenson was aware of. Wallis was approached to apply for the two day a month contract by the Met, following discussions involving the forces's most senior figures. A source with close knowledge of the Yard's thinking at the time said part of Wallis's attraction was his connection to former News of the World editor Coulson, who was a leading aide to Cameron, then in opposition and expected to become prime minister. Part of the Met's thinking was that Wallis's connections would help the force's relationship with Cameron: "One [Wallis] is a lot cheaper and gives you direct access into No 10," the source added.

    Stephenson was facing the prospect of a difficult Commons statement by Theresa May, the home secretary, and anxiety expressed by the deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, about confidence in the Met because of the failure to tackle the scandal. In his resignation statement , Stephenson stressed his integrity and dismissed weekend claims that it was compromised by accepting a free stay at a luxury health spa where Wallis had been hired as a PR consultant. Stephenson said: "I have taken this decision as a consequence of the ongoing speculation and accusations relating to the Met's links with News International at a senior level and in particular in relation to Mr Neil Wallis who as you know was arrested in connection with Operation Weeting last week.

    "I have heard suggestions that we must have suspected the alleged involvement of Mr Wallis in phone hacking. Let me say unequivocally that I did not and had no reason to have done so. I do not occupy a position in the world of journalism; I had no knowledge of the extent of this disgraceful practice and the repugnant nature of the selection of victims that is now emerging; nor of its apparent reach into senior levels." John Prescott, the former deputy prime minister who had called for Stephenson to resign, wrote on Twitter: "I always thought the Met and News International were too close and now we see how close they were. Another green bottle has fallen – more to come." Peter Smyth, chair of the Met Police Federation, said: "I think it is a sad day for Paul and a sad day for the Met. He is a very private man, I have never had any reason to question his integrity." He has come to a decision based on what he knows about himself."

    The mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who last year described the hacking issue as a load of codswallop, was also furious that he had not been informed of the payments to Wallis until after his arrest last week. He was planning to launch an inquiry into the links between the Met and News International to examine whether the Met's refusal to pursue the phone -hacking saga, and the links with News International. "We need to turn over some of these big flat rocks and find out what is underneath," Johnson said last night. He said he was sad about Sir Paul's resignation, but thought it was "the right call" since he was likely to be distracted by the speculation about his links with News International. Cameron said: "Sir Paul Stephenson has had a long and distinguished career in the police, and I would like to thank him for his service over many, many years. Under his leadership, the Metropolitan police made good progress in fighting crime, continued its vital work in combating terrorism, and scored notable successes such as the policing of the royal wedding."

    This was one of the first times LBC radio (London's Biggest Conversation) touched on freemasonry. This morning (13June2011) at 3am approx. LBC once again touched on this rare topic that the corporate media avoid like the plague. However from sources the radio interview was much more thorough than this interview done in 2009. As we have said many times the mass complicit media now only catching up with what has been exposed on the internet for many many years. They CANNOT ignore the subject any longer.

  • LBC EVENT: Freemasonry and Ancient Egypt at Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology
    freemason The corporate media now only starting to catch up with the evil masonic empire that is destroying the lives of all those it touches. The masonic network, that includes the UK's judiciary, is maybe one of the most evil networks on the planet and who have access to every piece of information on anyone who becomes their target, especially non-mason men when the judicial mafia come to steal their homes, assets but especially their children.

    Phone-hacking scandal: Jonathan Rees obtained information using dark arts

    Freemason set up network of corrupt police, customs officials, taxmen and bank staff to gain valuable information

    Years ago, Jonathan Rees became a freemason. According to journalists and investigators who worked with him, he then exploited his link with the lodges to meet masonic police officers who illegally sold him information which he peddled to Fleet Street. As one of Britain's most prolific merchants of secrets, Rees expanded his network of sources by recruiting as his business partner Sid Fillery, a detective sergeant from the Metropolitan Police. Fillery added more officers to their network. Rees also boasted of recruiting corrupt Customs officers, a corrupt VAT inspector and two corrupt bank employees. Other police contacts are said to have been blackmailed into providing confidential information. One of Rees's former associates claims that Rees had compromising photographs of serving officers, including one who was caught in a drunken state with a couple of prostitutes and with a toilet seat around his neck.

    It is this network of corruption which lies at the heart of yesterday's claim in the House of Commons by Labour MP Tom Watson that Rees was targeting politicians, members of the royal family and even terrorist informers on behalf of Rupert Murdoch's News International. The Guardian's own inquiries suggest that Watson knows what he is talking about. Much of what the police sources were able to sell to Rees was directly related to crime. But Rees also bought and sold confidential data on anybody who was of interest to his Fleet Street clients, to which the police often had special access. The Guardian has confirmed that Rees reinforced his official contacts with two specialist 'blaggers' who would telephone the Inland Revenue, the DVLA, banks and phone companies and trick them into handing over private data. One of the blaggers who regularly worked for him, John Gunning, was responsible for obtaining details of bank accounts belonging to Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex, which were then sold to the Sunday Mirror. Gunning was later convicted of illegally obtaining confidential data from British Telecom. Rees also obtained details of accounts at Coutts Bank belonging to the Duke and Duchess of Kent. The bank accounts of Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, are also thought to have been compromised.


    Confidential data

    The Guardian has been told that Rees spoke openly about obtaining confidential data belonging to senior politicians and recorded their names in his paperwork. One source close to Rees claims that apart from Tony Blair, Jack Straw, Peter Mandelson and Alastair Campbell, he also targeted Gaynor Regan, who became the second wife of the former foreign secretary Robin Cook; the former shadow home secretary Sir Gerald Kaufman; and the former Tory cabinet minister David Mellor. It is not yet known precisely what Rees was doing to obtain information on these political targets, although in the case of Mandelson it appears that Rees acquired confidential details of two bank accounts he held at Coutts, and his building society account at Britannia. Rees is also said to have targeted the bank accounts of members of Mandelson's family. An investigator who worked for Rees claims he was also occasionally commissioning burglaries of public figures to steal material for newspapers. Southern Investigations has previously been implicated in handling paperwork that was stolen by a professional burglar from the safe of Paddy Ashdown's lawyer, when Ashdown was leader of the Liberal Democrats. The paperwork, which was eventually obtained by the News of the World, recorded Ashdown discussing his fears that newspapers might expose an affair with his secretary.

    Computer hacking

    The successful hacking of a computer belonging to the former British intelligence officer Ian Hurst was achieved in July 2006 by sending Hurst an email containing a Trojan programme which copied Hurst's emails and relayed them back to the hacker. This included messages he had exchanged with at least two agents who informed on the Provisional IRA — Freddie Scappaticci, codenamed Stakeknife; and a second informant known as Kevin Fulton. Both men were regarded as high-risk targets for assassination. Hurst was one of the very few people who knew their whereabouts. The hacker cannot be named for legal reasons. There would be further security concern if evidence finally confirms strong claims by those close to Rees that he claimed to have targeted the then Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir John [now Lord] Stevens, who would have had regular access to highly sensitive intelligence. Sir John's successor, Sir Ian Blair, is believed to have been targeted by the News of the World's full-time investigator, Glenn Mulcaire. Assistant commissioner John Yates was targeted by Rees when Yates was running inquiries into police corruption in the late 1990s. It appears that Yates did not realise that he himself had been a target when he was responsible for the policing of the phone-hacking affair between July 2009 and January 2011. Targeting the Bank of England, Rees is believed to have earned thousands of pounds by penetrating the past or present mortgage accounts of the then governor, Eddie George; his deputy, Mervyn King, who is now governor; and half-a-dozen other members of the Monetary Policy Committee.

    Rees carried out his trade for years. His career as a pedlar of privacy stretches back into the 1990s, when he worked assiduously for the Daily Mirror, the Sunday Mirror and the News of the World. Rees and Fillery had three key media contacts, some of whose conversations with them were recorded by a police bug in their south London office: Doug Kempster from the Sunday Mirror, who was recorded suggesting that "Asians look better dead"; Gary Jones from the Daily Mirror, who was recorded as Rees told him that some of what he was doing for the Mirror was illegal; and Alex Marunchak, the executive editor of the News of the World. This lucrative career was crudely interrupted in September 1999 when Rees was arrested and then jailed for plotting to plant cocaine on a woman so that her ex-husband would get custody of her children. Sid Fillery similarly ran into trouble with the long of the arm of the law which he was so keen to twist. He was arrested, convicted for possession of indecent images of children and retreated to Norfolk to run a pub. Rees, however, emerged from prison in May 2004 and proceeded to carry on trading, this time exclusively for the News of the World, then being edited by Andy Coulson, who went on to become David Cameron's media adviser.

    The scale and seriousness of Rees's activities have worrying implications for Operation Weeting, the Scotland Yard inquiry which finally — unlike its two predecessors — is making a robust attempt to get to the truth of the scandal. Weeting has been told to focus on one private investigator, Glenn Mulcaire; on one illegal technique, phone-hacking; which he deployed for the one newspaper which paid him on a full-time contract, the News of the World. That alone is consuming the full-time efforts of 45 officers. The truth is that Mulcaire was only one of a dozen different investigators, many of whom used other illegal techniques. And the News of the World, as journalists all over Fleet Street know, was not the only enthusiastic employer of these dark arts. Mulcaire and his phone-hacking became the single focus through the simple fluke that he was clumsy enough to get caught interfering with the voicemail of the royal household — the one target which would finally move the police into taking on a Fleet Street paper. The police famously failed to look beyond him, and it is only now that the rest of the truth is beginning to emerge. With the new disclosures of Rees's operation there will be pressure on Weeting to expand its inquiry, which would involve recruiting still more officers. And, in the background, there is a small queue of other investigators waiting to have their names — along with their Fleet Street clients — added to Weeting's list of suspects. High among them will be a former Metropolitan police detective who was accused of corruption in the early 1980s and forced out of his job after a disciplinary hearing.

    Senior Yard sources say this detective then came up with a novel form of revenge. He acquired a press card and proceeded to act as a link between Fleet Street crime correspondents and the network of corrupt detectives he knew so well. Former crime reporters from several national newspapers have told the Guardian that they used this detective to carry cash bribes — thousands of pounds in brown envelopes — to serving officers. Scotland Yard for years has been aware of his activity and has attempted but failed to catch him and stop him.

    The crime reporters say that one reason for the Yard's failure is that, when the Yard tried to stop the corruption, serving officers tipped them off so they could evade detection. And there is more. The Guardian has identified a total of eleven specialist 'blaggers' who were paid by wealthy clients, including Fleet Street newspapers, to steal medical records, bank statements, itemised phone bills, tax files and anything else that was both confidential and newsworthy.

    The Archbishop of Canterbury is at the centre of a row after it emerged he had appointed a Freemason to be a bishop.

    Dr Rowan Williams named the Rev Jonathan Baker as the next Bishop of Ebbsfleet despite knowing he was an active and senior mason. The appointment, announced earlier this month, marked a significant U-turn by Dr Williams who had previously said that Freemasonry was “incompatible” with Christianity and had refused to promote Masons to senior posts.

    Last week, as news of Fr Baker’s membership of the Masons began to circulate through the Church, it provoked growing concern and criticism from clergy and members of the General Synod. When contacted by The Sunday Telegraph on Friday, Fr Baker defended his continued membership of the Masons and insisted it was compatible with his new role as a bishop. Yet yesterday he said he had changed his mind was leaving the masons so he could concentrate on being a bishop, adding: “I wish nothing to distract from the inauguration of that ministry.” Freemasonry, a secretive male-only organisation dating back 300 years, requires its members to declare a belief in a “supreme being” and to undergo elaborate rituals.

    Fr Baker joined the Apollo University masonic lodge in Oxford while he was a student, in an initiation ceremony that involves promising to keep the “secrets of Freemasonry”. This ritual is said to involve members being blindfolded, wearing a hangman’s noose, and being warned that those who break the oaths of allegiance will have their throat slit and their tongue torn out before being buried in the sand. He remained a member of the lodge for more than 20 years until his resignation yesterday, rising in the organisation to serve a term as an assistant Grand Chaplain.

    Fr Baker, who is currently principal at Pusey House in Oxford, said he had told Archbishop Williams he was a mason when they discussed his appointment to be the next Bishop of Ebbsfleet – one of the “flying bishops” who oversee clergy opposed to women priests. The post had fallen vacant when its previous holder quit to join the Roman Catholic Church. He said on Friday: “For many years I have been an active member and I continue to be a member. This came up in discussion with Rowan, but it has not caused a problem for me at any stage of my ministry and it won’t cause a problem now.” He argued that it would not interfere with his role of overseeing traditionalist parishes and said he saw no conflict in being a bishop and a Freemason.

    “I’ve never found it to be anything other than an organisation that is wholly supportive of the Church.” However, yesterday he said: “I have concluded that, because of the particular charism of episcopal ministry and the burden that ministry bears, I am resigning my membership of Freemasonry.” He said that in his conversation with Dr Williams about taking up the Ebbsfleet post, the Archbishop had asked him to reconsider his membership of Freemasonry, but was happy for the appointment to go forward while he was still a Mason.

    Yet Dr Williams has previously expressed serious concerns about clergy being involved with the organisation. In 2002, shortly before he became the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Williams wrote in a letter to Hugh Sinclair, of the Movement for the Register of Freemasons: “I have real misgivings about the compatibility of Masonry and Christian profession ... I have resisted the appointment of known Masons to certain senior posts.” A year later he repeated this unease when he tried to apologise for upsetting Freemasons with his comments, saying: “Where anxieties exist they are in relation not to Freemasonry but to Christian ministers subscribing to what could be and often is understood [or misunderstood] as a private system of profession and initiation, involving the taking of oaths of loyalty.”

    His senior advisers went even further at the time. “He questions whether it’s appropriate for Christian ministers to belong to secret organisations,” said The Rev Gregory Cameron, a close friend and former chaplain to Dr Williams. “He also has some anxiety about the spiritual content of Masonry.” A spokesman for Dr Williams said at the time that he was “worried about the ritual elements in Freemasonry, which some have seen as possibly Satanically inspired and how that sits uneasily with Christian belief”. He continued: “The other idea is that because they are a society, there could be a network that involves mutual back-scratching, which is something he would be greatly opposed to.”

    Last night, Christina Rees, a member of the Archbishops’ Council, said: “The fact that Jonathan Baker has resigned as a Freemason suggests to me there is a serious incompatibility between the organisation and the Church. If it was only a matter of perception, surely he could have stuck it out.” Her comments were echoed by Alison Ruoff, a prominent member on the General Synod, who said she had been stunned to learn of Fr Baker’s involvement with the Masons. “I’m pleased to hear he’s resigned as a Mason because it is clear that the gospel does not go with masonic beliefs,” she said.

    “I think Rowan should have said he could not be a bishop if he continued to be a Mason.” The Rev David Phillips, general secretary of the Church Society, a conservative evangelical group, said: “The Church has said that Freemasonry is not compatible with Christianity so appointing him as a bishop seems to contradict its own stance.” Lambeth Palace declined to comment.

    mason wall Why are my insurance premiums so high for my buildings and contents- because the system is being abused by the masonic mafia carrying out building repair works allowed through corrupt assessors working for the insurance companies. Exaggerated and inflated prices are charged for building works carried out by A select few masonic building companies.

    Don't try and get a slice of this cake if you are in the building trade if you don't don't have the handshake -no matter how good you are , competitive on pricing- or reliable, you have no chance this is all sewn up. These masonic firms are awarded the cream of the work and are allowed to charge top dollar- no questions asked- awarded contracts by fellow masons in suitable positions- the handshake and the envelope opens the doors.

    Why is this work not put out to tender to struggling building firms--no chance- this would upset the apple cart. if you are having work carried out by an appointed contractor by the insurance company insist on A schedule of works to be carried out prior to any work commencing- how much is the appointed contractor charging for this work- if you think you could have the the work carried out for less using local labour ask or I should say insist for A cash settlement and arrange your own tradesmen this is something you can insist on.

    How the insurance companies differentiate between certain customers baffled me- some people got everything new kitchens -white goods- new flooring-you name it they got it-hey good luck to them thats what you pay insurance for- but then some people who did not know how to make a fuss or maybe never had the handshake got the bare minimum.

    Do not accept anything less than you deserve the -appointed masonic firm is charging the insurance company A fortune for as little work as they can get away with. THE INSURANCE COMPANIES COULD SAVE A FORTUNE IF THEY PUT THIS WORK OUT TO TENDER AND BRING YOUR PREMIUMS DOWN.... PB.

    north wales tribunal THE NORTH Wales Child Abuse Tribunal cleared freemasonry of any involvement in covering up child abuse.

    But why did some fascinating information about the brotherhood never come to light? Why did the Tribunal’s own leading counsel not declare that he was a mason? And why was there no mention of a police lodge during the public hearings?

    REBECCA investigates how freemasonry came out of the inquiry smelling of roses …

    THE WATERHOUSE Tribunal set the tone for its approach to freemasonry right from day one.

    In the very first session the barrister for one of the groups of former residents of care homes made an application about masonry. The barrister, Nick Booth, asked that “the Tribunal should keep a register of the masonic membership amongst its staff, the members, its representatives and witnesses who appear before it”. He explained: “The duty of loyalty to a brother mason and his duty of impartiality if he is involved in the administration of justice is not a new one and it’s one that’s very much in the public eye, particularly at the moment.”

    “The Tribunal will be aware of the House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee which is investigating the issue,” he added. “Sir, I stress, if I have not stressed it before, that I am not making any suggestion of disreputable conduct, merely to put the matter beyond the reach of any possible public comment which might undermine the public confidence in the Inquiry.” The chairman of the Tribunal, Sir Ronald Waterhouse, and the two other members of the Tribunal, retired for a brief adjournment.

    “It will not surprise you that the application is refused,” said Sir Ronald on their return. “As far as the staff are concerned,” Sir Ronald said, “in so far as the application carries any reflection upon the integrity of the staff of the Tribunal it’s repudiated, wholly unwarranted; there is no evidence whatsoever to support any suggestion that they have not acted with complete integrity…” “The members of the Tribunal are in this position: the Tribunal was set up by Parliament and the members of it were appointed by the Secretary of State for Wales and the [criticism of the composition] should be addressed through the proper channels.”

    He said that the Tribunal’s own Counsel, Gerard Elias QC, was appointed by the Attorney General. “Any criticism … should be addressed through the usual Parliamentary channels,” he suggested. Gerard Elias said nothing during Booth’s application and he remained silent after Sir Ronald had made the Tribunal’s ruling.

    Yet both Sir Ronald and Gerard Elias knew something that journalists reporting the Tribunal would have wanted to know. Gerard Elias is a mason. He’s a member of perhaps the most powerful masonic lodge in Wales, Dinas Llandaf. The lodge, which meets in Cardiff, is made up mainly of legal professionals and members of the Conservative party, although there are members from other political groups. Another member of the lodge, Gwilym Jones, was the Tory MP for Cardiff North between 1983 and 1997. He was minister of state at the Welsh Office when the Tribunal was set up.

    REBECCA has a source who was close to the heart of the Tribunal. This source says Sir Ronald was aware of Elias’ masonic membership. Yet he too kept silent about the fact that the Tribunal’s own Counsel was a mason. What happened at the Tribunal was in contrast to proceedings at the beginning of Gordon Anglesea’s libel case in London less than three years earlier. Gordon Anglesea was a retired North Wales Police superintendent who was accused by journalists of abusing young boys at a children’s home in North Wales. He won a libel action and accepted £375,000 in damages. The judge was Sir Maurice Drake. He told the court that he was a member of an organisation to which Gordon Anglesea also belonged. He did not mention freemasonry but all of the legal teams on both sides knew which organisation he was referring to. There were no objections and no one ever questioned the way he handled the case.

    Dinas Llandaf is one of the 174 lodges in the South Wales Province. South Wales is one of the more open of the 47 provinces in England and Wales. Every year it gives copies of its annual yearbook to libraries and to any journalist who asks for one. The yearbooks list the officers of each lodge and the current issue – 2009-2010– gives considerable detail about Dinas Llandaf. For example, it shows all the officers of the lodge and those members who have reached the highest position – master of the lodge. Gerard Elias is shown as having been master in 1994.

    However, the North Wales Province is a completely closed book. It refuses to give out copies of its yearbook and these come into the public domain only occasionally. For the directory of freemasons in Apron Strings, for example, REBECCA had to make do with one for 1995-96. In 1995 a copy of the same yearbook came into the hands of Mark Brittain who was, at the time, Editor of the North Wales Weekly News. He quickly spotted a lodge called Custodes Pacis which was formed in 1983.

    He was told many members of Custodes Pacis – it’s Latin for Keepers of the Peace – were serving or retired police officers. Police lodges are not uncommon with the best known being London’s Manor of St James which at one point contained many senior officers of the Metropolitan Police. In 1995 Brittain wrote to the recently appointed Chief Constable of North Wales, Michael Argent, and asked him for an interview. He asked if the new chief was aware of the lodge. Argent wrote back to agree to an interview but told the journalist he could find no evidence of a police lodge. When Brittain met Argent he told him he had evidence of the lodge’s existence and, after the meeting, sent him the lodge entry from the 1995-96 yearbook.

    Argent wrote back in April. He now admitted that the lodge list “did indeed contain names known to me and my colleagues although in each case they were retired from the force – in some instances for quite a considerable period.” Brittain wrote back to ask if he was sure that there were no serving officers. In May 1995 Argent replied and said that further enquiries had been undertaken. “Mark Brittain seemed to know more about masonic influence in North Wales Police than the chief constable did.”

    “I am reliably informed that whilst, as I have suggested to you in my earlier letter, it consists mainly of retired police officers – certainly up to superintendent level – there are only four currently serving officers. Three are identified as constables and the fourth is either a constable or at most a sergeant.” Brittain says Michael Argent’s story changed three times during this correspondence. The man who was chief constable when Custodes Pacis was set up in 1983 was David Owen. When he gave evidence to the Tribunal, he did not mention the existence of the lodge…

    We wrote to David Owen to ask him why he didn’t tell the Tribunal about the lodge. He rang back to say he didn’t want to answer questions. In September 1997, during the North Wales Child Abuse Tribunal hearings, Brittain wrote to the North Wales police authority, which is responsible for the non-policing aspects of the force. The then clerk to the authority, Leon Gibson, wrote back to say that the information about the membership of Custodes Pacis had come from an unnamed lodge member.

    Gibson added that if the Chief Constable “remembers correctly, there were five, one sergeant and four constables.” The barrister who represented North Wales Police at the Tribunal was Andrew Moran, QC. In his opening address, he made it clear that the force felt that masonry was an irrelevance. He listed many of the senior policemen who had played a role in the child abuse investigations and said, “I am instructed to add, irrelevant though it should be, that none … is a Freemason.”

    He added: “Where then, please, we ask is the masonic influence? Freemason[s] at the top of the North Wales Police? There are none … Mason-free zone, we would say.” In this opening address, he did an unusual thing. He said none of these people “is” a freemason and did not add the usual rider “or has been” when dealing with masonic membership. He therefore left open the question of whether any of these senior officers had ever been masons.

    The Report of the Tribunal reported this statement with slightly different wording; “at the outset of the Inquiry Counsel for the North Wales Police stated, on the instructions of the Chief Constable, that none of the current or former senior officers from Assistant Chief Constable upwards during the period under review had been a freemason and that the same was true of the relevant Detective Chief Superintendents and Detective Superintendent Ackerley.” Ackerley was the Superintendent who headed the major police inquiry into child abuse between 1991 and 1993. REBECCA wrote to Sir Ronald Waterhouse about how the word “is” had changed into “had been.” He never replied.

    During the public hearings of the Tribunal freemasonry was little discussed, as its report makes clear: “Although this question was quite widely discussed in the press before the Tribunal’s hearings began very few questions were asked about it during our inquiry and most of them were put by the Chairman of the Tribunal to give appropriate witnesses an opportunity to affirm or deny any connection with freemasonry.” REBECCA sent a list of all the male barristers who appeared before the Tribunal to the United Grand Lodge of England and asked how many of them were freemasons. REBECCA also asked if the police assessor to the Tribunal, Sir Ronald Hadfield, and the retired police officers who made up the Tribunal’s witness interviewing team were masons.

    A spokesman replied: “I’m afraid I am unable to give you the information you require. We would only do so if you were an official body making that request.” When the Tribunal reported in 2000, its verdict was clear: “Freemasonry had no impact on any of the police investigations and was not relevant to any other issue arising from our terms of reference.” The most important known mason who appeared before the Tribunal was the retired Superintendent Gordon Anglesea who won a libel action against journalists who wrongly accused him of abusing children.

    “Anglesea was questioned also about his connection with Freemasonry,” said the Tribunal Report, “because of an underlying suggestion that there had been a ‘cover-up’ in his case. He disclosed that he had become a full member of Berwyn Lodge in Wrexham, in 1982, after being a probationer in a lodge at Colwyn Bay from about 1976.” “He had then transferred to a new Wrexham lodge, Pegasus lodge, in 1984 after a gap from April to September, because it offered an opportunity for swifter advance in freemasonry.” The Tribunal Report then says he remained a member of the Pegasus Lodge despite a directive from the Chief Constable of the North Wales Police, David Owen, in September 1984.

    This directive stated: “We must be seen to be even-handed in the discharge of our office and my policy will be to say that if you have considered joining the Masons, think carefully about how that application might interfere with your primary duty.” “To those who are Masons I would say that you should consider carefully how right it is to continue such membership. In the open society in which we live that openness must be seen by all and must not be an openness partially [clouded] by a secrecy where people could question true motivation.” During cross-examination of Anglesea at the Tribunal, Tim King QC, representing former residents of children’s homes, asked him if Owen’s directive had upset or concerned him.

    “Not whatsoever, sir,” replied Anglesea, “I read that order two or three times and it did not – I felt it did not affect my particular position.” 1984 was a watershed year for public scrutiny of masonry. That year saw the publication of Stephen Knight’s The Brotherhood which followed other press investigations such the 1981 REBECCA article Darkness Visible. The same year Metropolitan Commissioner Sir Kenneth Newman and Albert Laugharne, an assistant commissioner, published “The Principles of Policing” which made it clear that membership of freemasonry left officers open to suspicion.

    “Thus an officer must pay the most careful regard to the impression which others are likely to gain of his membership, as well as to what he actually does, however inhibiting he may find this when arranging his own private life.” David Owen’s response to these developments was to call a conference of superintendents which decided to issue the directive. Within a month of Owen circulating it, the Provincial Grand Master of North Wales, Lord Kenyon, asked to meet with him. The two men knew each other well: Kenyon was also a member of the police authority.

    The meeting took place at Wrexham police station. Lord Kenyon was accompanied by the secretary of the province, Leonard Ellis. Solicitors acting for the masons wrote to the Tribunal in an attempt to get this anecdote removed on the grounds that it was irrelevant to the Tribunal’s work. The Tribunal rejected the attempt and its report described what happened when the Provincial Grand Master came face to face with the Chief Constable.

    David Owen told the Grand Master that he had no intention of withdrawing his directive about freemasonry… “At this meeting Lord Kenyon argued that the directive was totally misguided and asked that it should be withdrawn and he mentioned that a police officer (unidentified but not Anglesea) had been about to take the chair in a North Wales lodge but had declined to do so because of this directive.” “Owen’s evidence was that he told Lord Kenyon that he had no intention of withdrawing the directive. In response, Lord Kenyon argued that the Chief Constable knew nothing at all about freemasonry and suggested it would be appropriate for him to join a lodge, such as the one at Denbigh, outside any area of his usual working activity, but this invitation was declined.”

    David Owen wasn’t the first chief constable Lord Kenyon had dealt with. Four years earlier the grand master welcomed Sir Walter Stansfield back to North Wales after he retired as Derbyshire’s chief constable and brought his police career to a close. Sir Walter had been chief constable of the Denbigh force before the reorganisation which led to the creation of the North Wales Police. He was deputy chief constable of North Wales in 1967 when he was appointed Derbyshire’s chief constable. When he left North Wales to take up the Derbyshire post, he didn’t sever his links with North Wales. He joined a new masonic lodge, Dyfrdwy, which met at Ruabon, becoming its master a year later, in 1968.

    In 1981 REBECCA asked Sir Walter Stansfield why he had chosen to join a North Wales lodge after he left North Wales Police. Had he been a member of a lodge in another part of the country? Sir Walter didn’t take kindly to being questioned on the subject. He said: “Who do you think you’re talking to?” He then denied being Sir Walter Stansfield even though the telephone number he was speaking on was listed in his name. Sir Walter also makes a cameo appearance in Martin Short’s book about freemasonry, Inside The Brotherhood. After Sir Walter left Derbyshire, the English force was rocked by the Alf Parrish scandal.

    Parrish was appointed chief constable in 1981 but soon squandered police funds for his own comfort. He was driven out of office by which time it was discovered that he was a mason as were many of the police authority members who appointed him. The key masons belonged to the oldest lodge in Derbyshire, Tryian. A provincial yearbook obtained by Labour councillors in the mid-1980s revealed that another member of the lodge was Sir Walter Stansfield… Lord Kenyon told a Grand Lodge meeting that masons have nothing to hide “but we object to having our affairs investigated by outsiders.”

    Back in 1981, North Wales Provincial Grand Master Lord Kenyon responded to increasing media attention, including REBECCA coverage, by making a statement to masons in the province. “… we have nothing to hide and certainly nothing to be ashamed of, but we object to having our affairs investigated by outsiders.” “We would be able to answer many of the questions likely to be asked, if not all of them, but we have found that silence is the best policy: comment or correction only breeds further inquiry and leads to the publicity we try to avoid.”

    The child abuse Tribunal’s report also dismissed any suggestion that Lord Kenyon had tried to promote the career of Gordon Anglesea. The Report concluded that “there is no evidence that Lord Kenyon intervened at any time in any way on behalf of Anglesea.” The Tribunal did consider a comment made by Councillor Malcolm King, who was also a former chairman of the North Wales Police Authority, that “there was speculation (he believed) that Lord Kenyon had asked for promotion for Gordon Anglesea.”

    “This was said by Councillor King to have been based on a conversation overheard at a police function; and that the speculation was that Lord Kenyon had advocated Anglesea’s promotion ‘for the purpose of covering up the fact that his son had been involved in child abuse activities’.” This was alleged to have related to an incident in August 1979 when Lord Kenyon’s son, Tom, reported the theft of articles by a former Bryn Estyn resident while the two men were staying at a flat in Wrexham. The young man he accused of theft was arrested and later given three months detention. However, during the course of the investigation police discovered a series of indecent photographs in the flat which was owned by a man called Gary Cooke.

    Cooke was later gaoled for five years on two counts of buggery, one of indecent assault and one of taking an indecent photograph. Cooke claimed that, after he was arrested and charged, Tom Kenyon came over and apologised to him for what had happened and handed him a letter. He added that if Cooke agreed “not to say anything” he would have a word with his father to improve Cooke’s chances in court.

    Cooke says he gave this letter to the police. The officers who dealt with the case say they received no such letter. Cooke believed that Tom Kenyon’s intervention shortened his sentence.

    However, when Superintendent Ackerley was carrying out his investigation into this case, he discovered that the prosecution file could not be found. The Tribunal’s investigators discovered that there was no evidence Cooke had been shown any favour: he served a full third of his sentence. In any case, the Report added, Lord Kenyon had no influence with the parole board. The Tribunal’s Report conclusion was damning: “We have received no evidence whatsoever in support of this allegation and it appears to have been merely a malicious rumour.”

    Councillor King was actually combining two separate rumours here: the first that Lord Kenyon had spoken up for Anglesea at a police function, the second that it was somehow related to favours Anglesea was alleged to have done for his son. The Tribunal should have known that the first rumour, that Lord Kenyon had spoken up for Anglesea, had rather more substance. The source of the anecdote was Harry Templeton, a former constable and once the secretary of the Police Federation branch in North Wales Police. The reason the Tribunal should have known about it was that two members of its own Witness Interviewing Team, made up of retired police officers who were not from North Wales, went to talk to Templeton.

    Templeton told them he had been to a function at the senior officers’ dining room at Police Headquarters in Colwyn Bay and was sitting opposite Lord Kenyon who was present as a magistrate member of the Police Authority. Templeton told the Tribunal team that Lord Kenyon had said that he was surprised Gordon Anglesea, then a chief inspector, had not been promoted to Superintendent and that he would see to it that he was promoted before he retired. Templeton told them he’d made a signed affidavit about the incident for a national newspaper. Templeton also told the Tribunal team there was another witness to the remark, Peter Williams, the then chairman of the Police Federation branch.

    Templeton never said anything about Lord Kenyon’s advocating a promotion for Gordon Anglesea having anything to do with Tom Kenyon’s case. This suggestion, he says, must have come from somewhere else. When REBECCA sent Templeton details of the Tribunal’s findings in relation to this anecdote, he was shocked. He says that the two retired Tribunal detectives had not taken a signed statement from him and he now feels there is a question mark about what they did with the information he gave them. REBECCA also spoke to Peter Williams who said that the Tribunal never came to see him. He confirmed that he was at the function with Harry Templeton in their official roles as Police Federation representatives.

    He recalls that Lord Kenyon expressed his surprise that Gordon Anglesea had not been promoted. He does not remember him saying that he would see that it took place before he retired.

    jim bevan Jim Bevan, provincial secretary of the South Wales Province of freemasons, told REBECCA last year that people should be able to inspect its yearbooks.

    SOME INTERESTING material emerged in the wake of the lists of masons we released last year.

    In the “Brothers in the Shadows” programme there was an interview with the secretary of the South Wales Province, Jim Bevan, who said his province operated a policy of openness. He said that the province sent copies of the yearbook to major public libraries and to local media: “I cannot for the life of me see any reason why Yearbooks should not be in public libraries,” he told REBECCA.

    “I wouldn’t want to say we want to go out and sell them to people, obviously not, but they should be there, the library service in South Wales look on our Yearbook as a work of reference.” This comment intrigued REBECCA subscriber Colin Thomas who’s in dispute with Merthyr Tydfil Borough Council and believes there may be masonic influence in the authority. He wrote to the province to ask for an up-to-date register of the province’s members. Martyn Daley, the provincial registrar, wrote back to say that the Data Protection Act didn’t allow him to do so.

    However, he didn’t send Colin Thomas a copy of the latest yearbook which he would have found helpful. REBECCA also checked if the latest yearbook is available in the local Merthyr Tydfil public library. It’s not. We then asked Cardiff Central Library if they had a copy. Yes, but the latest edition they have is 2000-2001. They did have other more recent editions but they had been stolen.

    We contacted South Wales provincial secretary Jim Bevan to see what the problem is. He didn't reply. REBECCA has sent Colin Thomas copies of the 2008-2009 yearbook entries for the five Merthyr lodges. An extraordinary set of emails came from Dr Andreas Önnefors. He’s the former Director of the Centre for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism at Sheffield University.

    The Centre was established in 2000 with financial support from the United Grand Lodge of England and the province of Yorkshire West Riding. The activities of the Centre were suspended by the University in January 2010. The University told us: “Funding by the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) came to an end, and it was not possible to secure further funding for the Centre’s activities. “Dr Andreas Önnerfors is no longer employed by the University.”

    In his email, Dr Önnefors said: “Your page is most impressive, but I am interested in why you render it significant that some people comitting crimes also are freemasons rather than members of any other voluntary association or group in society?” “Is it because the story then receives more credibility? Certainly the public would perceive a website that reveals if there are Jews or Gipsies living on your street as offensive if not racist and a journalism that establishes a link between Jews, Gipsies and crimes as a very doubtful way of writing about criminality.”

    “As I am writing an article on Freemasonry and politics for a scholarly volume on Contemporary freemasonry … I am interested in why you target freemasonry and not football clubs, pubs or mosques on your investigative website." When we suggested that he should pay the £1.50 members’ fee and actually read the articles on the REBECCA website, he replied: “Ha ha, that’s what prostitutes and marijuana dealers also tell you: buy and you will be enlightened”. We never heard from him again.

    Gerard Elias Gerard Elias QC failed in his bid to become counsel general of the Welsh Assembly. However, he was later appointed the Assembly’s Commissioner for Standards for six years. He gets a retainer of £5,100 and £48 an hour — chickenfeed for one of Britain's highest paid silks.

    Finally, we reported — in the "Brothers in Silk" article — on Gerard Elias QC and his bid to succeed fellow mason Winston Roddick as counsel general of the Welsh Assembly. The appointment was blocked by Rhodri Morgan.

    But in November last year Elias was appointed the National Assembly’s Commissioner for Standards. The appointment is for six years and attracts a small retainer with a modest hourly fee.

    A retired Erie County sheriff’s deputy who transported prostitutes to an event run by the Royal Order of Jesters was sentenced to one year on probation and fined $1,000.

    Michael Lesinski, 51, of Derby, pleaded guilty last year to failing to report a felony crime, the U. S. Attorney’s Office said. In April 2005—while he was still a member of the Sheriff’s Office— Lesinski transported about six prostitutes from Buffalo Niagara International Airport to a Jesters convention in Niagara Falls, Ont., prosecutor Robert C. Moscati said.

    Lesinski’s involvement was discovered during an investigation of human trafficking crimes associated with the Jesters. The Buffalo FBI office, the U. S. Border Patrol, the Erie County Sheriff’s Office and U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement conducted the probe.

    They no longer hide the imagery but use the movies to create a facade of respectability, meanwhile acting as the masonic henchmen for the British Royals. Sean Connery has been using his James Bond status to promote 'KILLING' for the despotic royals for most of his career. There is bugger all 'extraordinary' about the dimwits who get positions of power well above their station for signing their souls away to a satanic cult. Is that how Connery got his leg up the acting ladder joining the local masonic lodge?

    Having worked for a local building company which carried out work for insurance companies it became apparent that the company was run by the brotherhood and most of the employees were in the craft. This was no surprise as I knew the reputation of the company before I had to take up employment with them due to the recession.

    Everything went smoothly for a number of months and there was no shortage of work even although the building trade was in the worst state it had been in for a long time. The work kept flowing in non stop and apparently jobs were not even tendered for. Some houses had the ever watching eye picture on the wall- coincidence?

    Where does the truth lie here are the masters concocting work through fires and flood for their companies to carry out the work at extravagant prices with no questions asked ? I mean big money constantly- this was a blatant obvious scam...order through chaos... I worked extremely hard and kept my nose clean for 21 months but I had to go,face did not fit, not subservient enough, make way for a brother, 2011 this can't be happening surely?

    The lazy useless employees who were sons of past masters were allowed to sleep in the vans , do not a lot and enjoy the cream of the work. They would do anything they were told to and to scared to question anything. They settled my tribunal out of court without admitting liability I think to avoid any publicity , this has been going on for years and will continue to do so. They have got it all wrapped up,one of the contracts managers sister had a "flood" and managed to get a new kitchen and building and decoration makeover worth thousands and thousands-just one example of win win win .
