Freemasonry and Andrew Rosindell MP (Part 4)

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 4

“For some years membership of the lodges set up in the empire (grouped in provinces under English, Scottish or Irish jurisdiction)  was confined to Europeans. ..but after1860, at first Parsees, then other Indians were brought into the Brotherhood.  In British West Africa and the West Indies there were “black” lodges  as well as “white” lodges (as in the USA) and eventually mixed lodges were formed.” ”[This].. did much to defuse resentment of imperial domination” 

“..a man, better off  than the mass of the people – who were not sought as members – could by being a Freemason, feel that he belonged ...to the Establishment.  Just how far masonry reached is shown by the fact that on the small island of Jamaica there were no fewer than twelve lodges, some in townships of little more than a couple of streets.”  P34/35  

 “As the recruiting ground for Freemasons is  .. the middle and professional classes, it is clear that a very high proportion of these people, occupying key roles in British society – lawyers,  Civil Servants, bank managers and so on – are Freemasons.”  P37

Comment

It is clear that there is real concern that Freemasonry is an undemocratic means of enforcing a social order – do YOU want YOUR MP, Andrew Rosindell to be a supporter of a such a ssecret society rather than devoting completely to parliamentary democracy  ?
