Is David Cameron a Freemason?
http://shaphan.typepad.com/blog/2005/12/is_david_camero.html

And, if so, what effect would that have on his governance, were the MP for Witney (Oxfordshire) to be indirectly elected PM? UK political blog Recess Monkey wrote this on 12th December:

While conducting deep investigative research (googling) into Opus Dave, I came across this strange reference in google cache. allanparkinson69 has posted the following text on some sort of masons' chat board saying,

I'd like to congratulate my local Masonic lodge member, David Cameron MP for Witney, on his promotion to Deputy Speaker for the Conservative Party.

As an extremely young MP (thirties) I expect him to be party leader by the end of his political career...

Posted on 4th June, this message predates leadership election character assassinations, though also has a ring of american about it too, so I can't decide whether or not I think it's authentic...

I've traced the original message back to the Usenet newsgroup alt.freemasonry. allanparkinson69 posted 118 messages to alt.freemasonry between May and September 2003. The above message was posted not on June 4th 2005 but on July 3rd 2003. That would make the message more credible, and alanparkinson69's 117 other messages generally indicate a sound mind that's British, not American.

As a sidenote, and coincidentally, the Sunday Times reported on 20 November 2005 that:

THE Conservative party has accepted a £93,000 donation from a fund run by one of Britain's most senior freemasons.

The donation was paid by the Midlands-based Leamington Fund. No public records exist for the fund, which is an "unincorporated association".

However, The Sunday Times has established that the fund's chairman is Michael Price, the provincial grandmaster of Warwickshire freemasons. Price, 70, is the most senior mason in Birmingham and the surrounding area, and is in charge of 200 lodges and about 6,500 masons. Warwickshire and Oxfordshire are adjoining counties.

ADDENDA

1. I should note that Recess Monkey was contacted by a spokesman for Cameron who denied that his master was, or has ever been, a Mason. Which sounds as if his office is quite sensitive about the allegation. And I'm not sure that a denial that one's master is a Freemason is proof of the same.

2. The original message referred to Cameron's elevation to Deputy Speaker for the Conservative Party, a non-existent post. However, in June 2003, Cameron was appointed the Conservatives' Deputy Shadow Leader of the House.

3. [2006.01.01] The Leamington Fund, it transpires, gave its £93,000 to the Birmingham, Solihull and Coventry branch of the Conservative Party, not to the national party, sometime in the third quarter of this year (ie between 01 July and 30 September).

4. [2006.05.07] Please see later posts: David Cameron, Garibaldi and Freemasonry and The Press Gallery's Masonic Lodge(s).

The masons seem to believe they are Knights Templar. The sword in one hand the trowel in the other.

Conservatives at the heart of Freemasonry
Secret order: Research shows nine Givernment peers and four sitting MPs hold senior posts
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/conservatives-at-the-heart-of-freema sonry-1580256.html

CHRIS BLACKHURST WESTMINSTER CORRESPONDENT Tuesday 31 October 1995

Nine MPs and former MPs hold posts in the highest ranks of the Freemasons - and with one exception they are Conservative.
A study by Labour Research into the 1995 Masonic Year Book - the Who's Who of Freemasonry - also shows that nine Tory peers occupy senior posts in the secretive order.

The Commons Home Affairs Select Committee is due to break new ground by holding the first parliamentary inquiry into the extent of Masonic influence on the police and judiciary early next year.

The study also provides food for thought for Lord Nolan and his committee on standards in public life, which has also indicated a willingness to look into the mysterious craft.

As a law lord, Lord Nolan may find himself investigating his colleagues: 32 judges or retired judges are listed in the Masonic Year Book.

According to the book, the House of Lords has more leading Masons than the Commons. They start with the most powerful of all, the Duke of Kent, who, as is well-known, is grand master of the United Grand Lodge of England, the order's governing body in this country.

The number two Mason is Lord Farnham, an Irish peer. Earlier this year, the Irish peers lost their long campaign to be allowed to take their places in the Lords so he does not count among the 25 top Masons in the upper house.

Of those 25, nine are Tories, 11 are crossbenchers and four do not declare any party allegiance. One, the Duke of Kent, is above party politics as a member of the Royal Family. The Tory peers include: Lord Belstead, a former leader of the House of Lords; Lord Lane of Horsell, a former chair of the National Union of Conservative Associations; and the Earl of Elgin & Kincardine. Lord Belstead was president of the board of general purposes of the United Grand Lodge in 1994-95, while the Earl of Elgin & Kincardine is an ex-grand master for Scotland.

Four sitting Conservative MPs appear in the handbook: Tony Baldry, a junior minister; Sir Gerard Vaughan; Sir Peter Emery and Ian Bruce. Of these, Mr Bruce, who sits on a number of United Grand Lodge committees, appears to be the most prominent.

Former MPs, all Tories, in the book are: Sir Neil Thorne, who loaned his Westminster home for the Prime Minister's leadership campaign headquarters in the summer; Sir Ian Percival, a former solicitor-general; Sir David Trippier; Sir John Wells and Sir Edwin Leather. One Conservative former MEP, Sir Peter Vanneck, is also listed.

Only one former Labour politician is in the book: Niall Macdermot, who retired as Derby North's MP in 1970.

As well as Tories and judges, businessmen also occupy senior posts "on the square". They include Sir John Banham, former director-general of the CBI and a director of National Westminster Bank and National Power.

Sir Gerrard Peat, a partner in KPMG Peat Marwick, the leading accountancy firm, is a top Mason. He is also a past auditor to the Queen's Privy Purse and treasurer of the Association of Conservative Clubs.

Fascinating this one

"Sir Gerrard Peat, a partner in KPMG Peat Marwick, the leading accountancy firm, is a top Mason"
Ah, that will be the auditor that signed off the accounts of all the big banks in the years running up to 2008!

Freemasons are blocking reform, says Police Federation leader
Steve White, stepping down as chair, says the society is thwarting progress of women and BAME people

Reform in policing is being blocked by members of the Freemasons, and their influence in the service is thwarting the progress of women and people from black and minority ethnic communities, the leader of rank-and-file officers has said.

Steve White, who steps down on Monday after three years as chair of the Police Federation, told the Guardian he was concerned about the continued influence of Freemasons.

White took charge with the government threatening to take over the federation if it did not reform after a string of scandals and controversies.

Critics of the Freemasons say the organisation is secretive and serves the interests of its members over the interests of the public. The Masons deny this saying they uphold values in keeping with public service and high morals.”

White told the Guardian: “What people do in their private lives is a matter for them. When it becomes an issue is when it affects their work. There have been occasions when colleagues of mine have suspected that Freemasons have been an obstacle to reform.

“We need to make sure that people are making decisions for the right reasons and there is a need for future continuing cultural reform in the Fed, which should be reflective of the makeup of policing.”

One previous Metropolitan police commissioner, the late Sir Kenneth Newman, opposed the presence of Masons in the police.

White would not name names, but did not deny that some key figures in local Police Federation branches were Masons.

White said: “It’s about trust and confidence. There are people who feel that being a Freemason and a police officer is not necessarily a good idea. I find it odd that there are pockets of the organisation where a significant number of representatives are Freemasons.”

The Masons deny any clash or reason police officers should not be members of their organisation.

Mike Baker, spokesman for the United Grand Lodge, said: “Why would there be a clash? It’s the same as saying there would be a clash between anyone in a membership organisation and in a public service.

“We are parallel organisations, we fit into these organisations and have high moral principles and values.”

Baker said Freemasonry was open to all, the only requirement being “faith in a supreme being”. He said there were a number of police officers who were Masons and police lodges, such as the Manor of St James, set up for Scotland Yard officers, and Sine Favore, set up in 2010 by Police Federation members. One of those was the Met officer John Tully, who went on to be chair of the federation and, after retirement from policing, is an administrator at the United Grand Lodge of England.

Masons in the police have been accused of covering up for fellow members and favouring them for promotion over more talented, non-Mason officers.

White said: “Some female representatives were concerned about Freemason influence in the Fed. The culture is something that can either discourage or encourage people from the ethnic minorities or women from being part of an organisation.”

The federation has passed new rules on how it runs itself, aimed at ending the fact that its key senior officials are all white, and predominantly male.

White said he hoped the new rules would lead to an end to old white men dominating the federation: “The new regulations will mean Freemasons leading to an old boys’ network will be much less likely in the future.”


Theresa May stuns Police Federation with vow to break its power

White came to be chair of the Police Federation after Theresa May went to its 2014 conference and ripped into it. The federation had to decide whether it would adopt a package of 36 reforms, with May, who was then home secretary, threatening that if it failed to do so, it would be taken over by the government and forced to. The Metropolitan police federation was the only local body in the organisation, which represents rank-and-file officers, not to back a package of reforms.

In 2014 federation members felt the body that represented them was failing them and was distant.

White said the organisation had been turned around during his time in office: “We have gone from being almost irrelevant to being the trusted voice of the frontline and the service. I think we had an organisation that shouted and bawled about everything, which became irrelevant to members and risked being wound up.”

White beat the Met officer Will Riches to the chairmanship via a coin toss, after the two candidates won the same number of votes. White, who had served as a firearms officer in Avon and Somerset, came into office promising to end a culture of drinking by federation officials using members’ money.

White said more reform of policing was needed: “There should be future radical reform of the police. The 43 forces need to operate more as a single entity. We have to break down the political barriers caused by PCCs [police and crime commissioners].”

White has written a paper advocating a national body to drive through reforms and impose them on forces if necessary: “We need a new governance board at a national level to drive reforms to policing and make sure it happens.”

The National Police Chiefs’ Council’s lead for ethics and integrity, the chief constable Martin Jelley, said: “While we recognise that there has been concern in the past around serving officers also being Freemasons, it is clear that concern over real or perceived threat to impartiality of this has decreased. Regular external scrutiny of the police service by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services has not raised this as an issue of concern.

“Strict guidelines require officers to declare anything which might be deemed a conflict of interest in their force’s register of interests. If convincing evidence ever came to light which clearly showed that Freemasonry was adversely affecting the integrity of the police service then we would take appropriate action.”

Why the secret handshake between police and Freemasons should worry us
Duncan Campbell
Successive Met commissioners have tried to end the society’s influence. It is as clear as ever that membership of both bodies is incompatible with public service
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jan/02/secret-handshake -police-freemasons

‘I asked the superintendent if he was ‘on the square’ and his attitude changed completely; suddenly he became my best friend,’ wrote Brian Paddick. Photograph: Murdo MacLeod for the Guardian
Tue 2 Jan ‘18 09.00 GMT Last modified on Tue 2 Jan ‘18 09.01 GMT

When the late Sir Kenneth Newman became commissioner of the Metropolitan police in 1982, he outlined his thoughts on how his officers should behave in what became known as “the little blue book”. Always a tactful man, his passage on freemasonry noted delicately that “the discerning officer will probably consider it wise to forgo the prospect of pleasure and social advantage in freemasonry so as to enjoy the unreserved regard of all those around him”.

More than 30 years later, it will come as a surprise to many that membership of the Freemasons is still causing disquiet within the police. Steve White, the retiring chair of the Police Federation, which represents rank and file officers, told the Guardian this week that he and his colleagues suspected that Freemasons within the service were hampering reforms and acting in an obstructive way. “I find it odd,” he added, “that there are pockets of the organisation where a significant number of representatives are Freemasons.”

Many younger recruits regard Freemasonry as little more than a weird old boys’ club
The Freemasons themselves have denied that there is anything untoward and say that they see no conflict of interest between membership of a masonic lodge and a job in the police. “We are parallel organisations … and have high moral principles and values,” Mike Baker, spokesman for the United Grand Lodge, told the Guardian.

That may well be, but being both a Freemason and a police officer remains just as delicate and conflicted an issue as it did in the 1980s. After Newman’s pronouncement, Freemasons within the Met, some of them in quite senior positions, responded defiantly by setting up their own new lodge called the Manor of St James, and there was little that Newman could do about it. Since then, commissioner after commissioner has made the same point.

Bernard Hogan-Howe: ‘For me as a police officer, the secrecy of membership is a concern. I think police officers should be transparent.’

The late Lord Imbert also took on the Freemasons when he had the top job at Scotland Yard. So did Lord Condon, and most recently, in 2014, the then commissioner, Bernard Hogan-Howe, said that it would be difficult under human rights legislation to make a register of membership compulsory, but he made it clear that “for me as a police officer, the secrecy of membership is a concern. I think police officers should be transparent: nothing to hide, then why not mention it? My view would be that you ought to be open about your associations.”

Quite. And there are very good reasons for this distance to be observed, stretching back to the dark days of endemic corruption in the Met and elsewhere from the 1960s to the 1980s, when it emerged that some detectives were even in the very same lodge as career criminals.

Brian – now Lord – Paddick, in his autobiography, Line of Fire, disclosed that both he and and his father had been Freemasons. Paddick himself joined almost as soon as he could, at the age of 21, when he was already an officer working under an unpopular superintendent in west London. “I asked the superintendent if he was ‘on the square’ and his attitude changed completely; suddenly he became my best friend and showed me his Masonic regalia, the decorated apron worn in Masonic meetings … I found his complete volte-face quite disappointing but it was not the last time someone’s attitude to me was to change instantly when he discovered my Masonic links.” Paddick duly decided to give up attending Masonic meetings.

Freemasonry’s Titanic heyday has probably long gone
Chris Mullin

As recently as 1999, a former detective and a Freemason, Duncan Hanrahan, was jailed for more than eight years for conspiracy to rob, supply drugs and pervert the course of justice. It emerged in his Old Bailey trial that he had used a fellow Freemason, who was a serving officer, to help him make contact with another officer, whom he tried unsuccessfully to bribe. And this came just three years after the home affairs select committee had announced: “We believe that nothing so much undermines public confidence in public institutions as the knowledge that some public servants are members of a secret society, one of whose aims is mutual self-advancement.”

Things may have changed a great deal in the intervening two decades since those remarks; there are thankfully many more women in the service now. Many younger recruits, particularly those from ethnic minority backgrounds, regard Freemasonry and all its aprons and handshakes and rituals, as little more than a weird old boys’ club. But Steve White has made the point that its influence within the service still exists. All those commissioners were right. If the public thinks that a secret handshake can still swing a prosecution and officers themselves feel that the same handshake can affect a promotion, then it is as clear as ever that membership of both bodies is incompatible. And it is time that all those officers who are Freemasons decided to “forgo the prospect of pleasure and social advantage” until they have left the service.
