here is some historical background
to give us all some context for these nebulous ideas of govt, sovereignty and finance.
ok it will take only a couple of minutes and its very interesting
Although the modern system of local and regional government can be directly traced back to Babylon, when in King Nebuchadnezzar's time (605-562 B.C.),
the city was divided up into ten distinct regions or districts ruled by princes, under whom were mayoral governors, captains, judges, treasurers,
councilors and sheriffs in modern times the system of local government that we have throughout the world is derived exclusively from the City of
The City of London Corporation is a Masonic, private, independent, sovereign state occupying approximately one square mile within the heart of
thegreater London area inside the old Roman walls of London.
It either directly or indirectly, controls all mayors, councils, regional councils, multi-national and trans-national banks, corporations, judicial
systems (through Old Bailey, Temple Bar and the Royal Courts of Justice in London), the IMF, World Bank, Vatican Bank (through N. M. Rothschild & Sons
London Italian subsidiary Torlonia), European Central Bank, United States Federal Reserve (which is privately owned and secretly controlled by eight
British-controlled shareholding banks), the Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland (which is also British-controlled and oversees all of
the Reserve Banks around the world including our own) and last but not least, the communist European Union and communist United
The supreme ruler of the City is the Lord Mayor who is elected once a year and lives in the Mansion House. The City has a resident population of
about 5,000 that rises to about two million during the week when people surge in and out each day to work. The financial centre of the world, it is
often termed the 'wealthiest square mile on earth.'
The full title of the Square Mile's governing body is the 'Mayor, Aldermen and Commons of the City of London in Common Council Assembled.' The
Court of leadership consists of the Lord Mayor, 25 Aldermen and 130 Common
All of the giant, largely Jewish international banks and corporations in the City of London that control the world are members of one or another of
the Twelve Great Livery Companies domiciled in Guildhall (or the Hall of the City of London Corporation).
As the result of a 'gentleman's agreement' between the sovereign and the City merchants and bankers made many hundreds of years ago, the Lord Mayor is
officially head of the Corporation and is allowed to operate independently of the sovereign. However, the wealth of the world held in the Corporation
ultimately is the sovereign's, because, should the gentleman's agreement break down, the sovereign has the power to "rescind" the Corporation's
independence. The Queen sometimes refers to the Corporation as "The Firm."
While ostensibly the power of the monarchy appears to be diminishing as the Queen voluntarily gives her Commonwealth countries their independence and
they become republics chartered to the United Nations, and she actively works toward abolishing the sovereignty of Britain as the UK is broken up and
divided into regions of the European Union her City of London Corporation multi-national banks and corporations are quietly taking over the world.
All of the big banks and companies in both New Zealand and Australia are either directly or indirectly City of London-controlled.
In ancient times the City marshals and sheriffs were employed to ensure that all the "council" rates and taxes were paid to the City on behalf of the
king. After the conquest of William the Conqueror in 1066, who first brought the Jewish bankers to London from France, the Jews developed written
credit agreements for the king, (in French called "mort-gages" mort 'death' gage 'bond') and it was the marshal's and sheriff's jobs to ensure that
all the interest payments of these "death-bonds" were paid to the Jews on behalf of the king.
During the reign of Richard I (the Lionheart) after the serious downturn in the economy as the result of the cost and tax impositions of the
Crusades, many farmers, business people and peasants had defaulted on their "mort-gages" throughout England. As the result, the Jews promptly
commenced seizing the commoner's property for not paying the interest, rates and taxes to the City and King. Subsequently, a rapid increase in hate
against the "King's Jews" was initiated. This led to the massacre of Jews at York in 1190. New York in America was later named by British Jewish
immigrant bankers in memory of the event.
For 100 years the commoner's hate against the "King's Jews" fermented until 1290, when, under pressure from the people, Edward III finally
suspended the Mayoralty and reluctantly banished all Jews from his kingdom when 16,000
left England and didn't begin to return until around the reign of Elizabeth I (1558-1603) when the enormous power of the City really began to
accelerate with the opening of the world's first stock exchange in London and has continued unabated to the present day.
While there have been rare occasions when the Lord Mayor and Commalty of the City, as a result of their colossal wealth and power have been
able to subtly out-maneuver the monarch, as to their cost, Richard II, Charles I and James II were to learn to their fate generally speaking this
has been the exception rather than the rule. Ultimately, whoever successfully rules must have the "will" of the people. Historically, in the City many
although certainly not all monarchs,
have ruled with the "will" of their subjects. But rarely, if ever, have the bankers, rich barons or knights been respected in this position. More
often than not they've been consistently hated. Even when monarchs have done a poor job, provided they have still had the "will" of the people, the
wealthy bankers' position has been extremely "perilous" to say the least.
After forty years of misrule by Henry III, the Lord Mayor, Thomas Fitzthomas (1261-1264) and the Aldermen defied the king. On this particular
occasion the Lord Mayor ended up being thrown into the Tower where he died. Henry III
vetoed nine Mayors in his long reign, and jailed another who died in prison.
On one occasion the threat to the Lord Mayor's massive wealth and power has not come directly from the monarch, but from the people themselves.
Mayor Nicholas Brembre (1383-1385) had been a king's man during the peasant's revolt, and was knighted by Richard II (similar to Sir Barry Curtis,
Mayor of Manukau City in New Zealand) for curbing the
ambitions of his uncle, John of Gaunt. But Brembre had few friends among the common people having deposed the popular Mayor Adam Stable, and when he
re-imposed the hated Poll Tax which had caused the revolt, the mob turned on
him. He was given a mockery of a trial and was then hanged, drawn and quartered.
Understandably, therefore, from the time of Richard II most of the "Lord Mayors" in the City of London and others in the realm became very "cautious"
and "hesitant" about any proposal which could be seen as an "unreasonable demand" to levy rates or taxes for the City and king. However, today these
events have all but been forgotten.
