In his letter on freemasonry, City of London Councillor Edward Lord fails to address or explain why more than fifty percent of the City of London’s Lord Mayors since the founding of the Guildhall Lodge 3116 have been members of it. Information on this subject can be found in various places. The Paviors Lodge 5646 puts it like this on it’s website: “The Guildhall Lodge Number 3116 was established in 1905 for the Aldermen and Common Councillors of the City of London. To date, no less that 78 Masters of this distinguished lodge have also been Lord Mayors of the City of London.” This might well be taken as indicating behind the scenes influence at the Guildhall.Read more "Edward Lord, The City of London and Freemasonry"
In a previous post we addressed the opaque nature of one of Michael Bear’s entries on his Register of Interests as a member of the City of London council. We would still like him to clarify whether or not what he lists as the ‘Grand Charity Society’ is in fact the Freemason’s Grand Charity; and if it is then whether or not – as would seem likely – he is a Freemason. It has now come to our attention that Michael Bear seems to have overlooked his Arion Capital appointment in March when he last updated his register of interests on 12th June, 2017.Read more "‘Sir’ Michael Bear’s Register of Interests Again!"
Anyone who cares to do a web search will find that a number of conspiracy sites list ‘Sir’ Michael Bear as the 683rd Lord Mayor of London and a Freemason belonging to the Guildhall Lodge #3116. That said, for those concerned with social justice, the speculative masonry of City of London councillors is of little interest; we are much more concerned about operative masonry – the connections between these men and urban ‘regeneration’ schemes, as well as the building and construction industry.Read more "Is ‘Sir’ Michael Bear’s Declaration Of Interests On The Square?"
