Freemasonry and Andrew Rosindell MP (Part 6)

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”. 
“ 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 6

“ I have spoken to nearly seventy former and currently serving officers of the City of London force .. by the late 1960s it was very hard for non-Masons to obtain promotion above Superintendent in the uniformed branch or above Sergeant in the CID”. P58

“The row about Freemasonry in the police blew up again in 1972 when the Police Review published an article by  a Sergeant  of Nottinghamshire Combined Constabulary, Peter J. Welling. .. Welling wrote ..[a Freemason] takes an oath of allegiance to all members of the Freemasonry movement. To assist him to recognise other Freemasons he is taught secret handshakes and other secret signs. This type of association  taken throughout the country forms a formidable chain of contact and associates from all walks of life.”p66

“..the Police Federation’s journal Police published this complaint from Metropolitan Police Sergeant Robin Kirby in 1977: All my service I have been aware that there is a distinct advantage to being a Freemason.  Doors are opened, rank structures are broken down ...” p 73

“another issue of Police contained one of the most serious allegations about Freemasonry in the police to have appeared in print...Blair Watt, a Thames Valley PC wrote .. I speak from personal experience  of no less than three occasions  on which I have been approached, and even threatened, by more senior officers who sought to influence my dealings with fellow Freemasons, with regard to offences committed by them.” P74


Andrew Rosindell MP has politically campaigned on crime and punishment many many times but these testamonies from serving police officers indicate that some people, like Lord Lucan for example, are above the law.
