    The true power of Britain is the City of London not England, Scotland or Wales. The British Empire is really the City of London Corporation and the pirates of the Livery. Notice how Dame of Malta, Queen Elizabeth the second symbolically curtsies to the King of The City of London via her positioning on the steps. Notice the Masonic brotherhood handshake over the third step of the Master Mason blue lodge degree and notice the white Freemasonic gloves of the King and the black gloves of the Queen uniting in duality or the yin and yang. She is greeting a power far greater than her’s within the sovereign state of The City of London.

    Queen Elizabeth has to touch the pearl-encrusted Sword of State the Lord Mayor places towards her. Notice she is in normal dress wear as she has zero powers within the City of London and this goes all the way back to 1215 and the signing of Magna Carta. This removed the Monarchy powers over the Kingdom and City of London in the blink of an eye as it was a going against the 1213 contract with the Pope and the clause was this very power handover away from the Monarchy. Today its just an illusion given to the populace that the monarch has power and its done in order to veil the real power. The power over City of London is the Knights of Malta using the Ad Providam Papal Bull of 1312 by Pope Boniface VIII. Notice the Lord Mayor is in full regalia showing his power over all including over the Monarchy within New Jerusalem (City of London). Remember that the Monarchy outside of the City of London was granted their full powers in 1688 with the English Bill of Rights.

    Benjamin D’Israeli wrote: “So you see… the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes” (Coningsby, The Century Co., N.Y., 1907, p. 233). This fact is further demonstrated by another passage from Menen’s book: “The Prime Minister, a busy politician, is not expected to understand the mysteries of high finance, while the Chancellor of the Exchequer is only expected to understand them when he introduces the budget. Both are advised by the permanenet officials of the Treasury, and these listen to the City. If they suspect that some policy of the government will back-fire, it is of no use their calling up British ambassadors to ask if it is so; they can find out more quickly from the City. As one ambassador said: “Diplomats are nowadays no more than office boys, and slow ones at that. The City will know. They will tell the Treasury and the Treasury will tell the Prime Minister.” Woe betide him if he does not listen.

    The most striking instance of this happened in recent history. In 1956 the then Prime Minister, Sir Anthony Eden… launched a war to regain the Suez Canal. It had scarcely begun when the City let it be known that in a few days he would have no more money to fight it; the Pound would collapse. He stopped the war and was turned out of office by his party. When the Prime Minister rises to address the Lord Mayor’s banquet, he hopes that the City will put more behind him than the gold plate lavishly displayed on the sideboards.” The British government is the bond slave of the “invisible and inaudible” force centred in the City. The City calls the tune. The “visible and audible leaders” are mere puppets who dance to that tune on command. They have no power. They have no authority. In spite of the outward show they are mere pawns in the game being played by the financial elite. It is important to recognise the fact that two separate empires were operating under the guise of the British…

    It is important to recognise the fact that two separate empires were operating under the guise of the British Empire. One was the Crown Empire and the other the British Empire. The colonial possessions that were white were under the sovereign – i.e. under the authority of the British government. Such nations as the Union of South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Canada were governed under British law. These only represented thirteen percent of the people who made up the inhabitants of the Britsh Empire. All the other parts of the British Empire – nations like India, Egypt, Bermuda, Malta, Cyprus and colonies in Central Africa, Singapore, Hong Kong and Gibraltar were all Crown Colonies. These were not under British rule. The British parliament had no authority over them. As the Crown owned the committee known as the British government there was no problem getting the British taxpayer to pay for naval and military forces to maintain the Crown’s supremacy in these areas.

    The City reaped fantastic profits from its operations conducted under the protection of the British armed forces. This wasn’t British commerce and British wealth. The international bankers, prosperous merchants and those members of the aristocracy who were part of the “City” machine accumulated vast fortunes. Chartered Bank of India - a bank incorporated in London, was founded in 1853 by James Wilson; following the grant of a Royal Charter from Queen Victoria. The Shanghai branch of Chartered bank began operation in August 1858. Initially, the bank's business dealt specifically with large volume discounting and re-discounting of opium. Transactions in the opium trade generated substantial profits for Chartered bank. Standard Chartered was fined £667 million in 2012 for money laundering. SC ceo Sir John Peace should have had his knighthood stripped for lying and breaching the deferred prosecution agreement to NYC financial regulators but the City blocked this as they reward criminals.

    About seventy years ago Vincent Cartwright Vickers stated that : ….”financiers in reality took upon themselves, perhaps not the responsibility, but certainly the power of controlling the markets of the world and therefore the numerous relationships between one nation and another, involving international friendship and mistrusts… Loans to foreign countries are organised and arranged by the City of London with no thought whatsoever of the nation’s welfare but solely in order to increase indebtedness upon which the City thrives and grows rich…”
