Freemasonry and Andrew Rosindell MP (Part 5)

In 2003 it was reported that Andrew Rosindell MP (Conservative, Romford) was made a Freeman of the City of London (see Debretts). The Havering Witness justice campaign would like to consider the consequences of this for the voters of Romford.  To do this The Havering Witness has studied the book “The Brotherhood” by Stephen Knight, 1994 edition, published by Harper Collins, ISBN 0-586-05983-0, the book is described as the “The Explosive Expose’ Of The Secret World Of The Freemasons”. 
“..to qualify for the membership of one the [City of London] livery companies a man must be a Freeman of the City of London, an honour generally awarded by Freemasons to Freemasons..” p 228
On a chapter by chapter basis we have selected quotes that concerned us greatly Witnesses to crime and corruption who are prepared to give their testimony under oath in a court of law should not be ignored.


Quotes From “The Brotherhood” by Stephen Knight,  Chapter 5

In Freemasonry the word degree is used to signify Masonic rank.  The Grand Master of all England is  a Freemason of only the 3rd Degree but there are THIRTY Higher Degrees above the three degrees of Craft Masonry, these Higher Degrees are governed by a separate Supreme Council .  The headquarters of the Supreme Council  is termed the Grand East  “There is an elite group of Freemasons in England over whom the United Grand Lodge has no jurisdiction.” p 38

“The Thirty- Third degree [the highest] of Grand Inspector General is particularly attractive to military men.  They make up the members of the Supreme Council.  Before his retirement in 1982 the head of the Supreme Council  was the Major-General  Sir (Herbert) Ralph Hone (who practised law).” P42

Other Higher Degrees of Freemasonry have strange sounding names like Knight of the Pelican and Eagle (18th Degree) or  Grand Elected Knight Kadosh, Knight of the Black and White Eagle (30th Degree)  listed on p40

Comment

"The Brotherhood" itself nor any other reference we can find describes how the Higher Degrees of Freemasonry are formally scrutinised in any way by the parliamentary democracy we are told we live in.
