Cameron the "Common Purpose" Prime Minister

There was a lot of fuss a few months ago when the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby declined the invitation to be a patron of the RSPCA. Some saw it as a snub; others as a 'deliberate distancing'. But Lambeth Palace reasonably explained:
“Since taking office in March this year, the Archbishop has received many kind invitations to patron a large variety of charities and good causes. Each invitation has been an honour, and in an ideal world he would like to accept them all. However, in light of the sheer volume of requests the Archbishop receives, and the many pressures on his time and resources, he has reluctantly decided to restrict his patronage to a manageable number of organisations, based on where he feels his support could be most beneficial."
The "ideal world" scenario of accepting all such invitations is, of course, a gracious expression of appreciation, but an absolute nonsense: when you are new to a senior office of state, you will be very wary indeed of each and every invitation to become associated with organisations and individuals. Indeed, you will have a dedicated staff whose job it is to research backgrounds, form a view and then advise in order to protect your office and person from association with fraudsters, malcontents and unsavoury political activity.

And when that request to associate is a formal invitation to become a patron - to have your name very prominently tagged to an organisation's aims, ethical standards and objectives - you choose very carefully indeed, and limit yourself to those with whose aims, ethical standards and objectives you agree and can devote time to supporting. 

This will be the case for the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Queen, and the Prime Minister, if not for all bishops, the whole Royal Family and all politicians - commons and peers.  

So when David Cameron plays down his patronage of the Dishaa Venture, and insists that its non-disclosure in the Register of Members' Interests was simply an "administrative oversight", you can safely bet that someone is being a little economical with the actualité.

Apparently he accepted this honorary position in 2010 - the year in which he became Prime Minister. On the Common Purpose website, we learn that "Dishaa is a Venture that expands, enriches and energises relations between India and the UK. By fostering discussion amongst diverse leaders it builds shared approaches to 21st century political, economic and social challenges and expand the existing partnerships, friendships and dialogues that are already taking place."

That's nice.

But who or what is Common Purpose?

His Grace isn't here to spoon-feed you: Google them.

And then ask yourself why a Conservative Prime Minister - or, indeed, any Conservative - would want to be associated with a group that, according to Philip Davies MP, is "trying to get their tentacles into every nook and cranny of the Establishment to pursue their Leftist, pro-European political agenda".

And he adds: "Common Purpose don’t want a free press because a free press exposes what they are up to."

So David Cameron freely associates his name and office with an organisation that seeks to diminish our liberties and negate our sovereignty.

Well exposed, your grace. Yes, good people should run a mile from Common Purpose, from all I've read. (I personally may get few - well, no - requests to be organisations' Patron, but I do get very, very many requests for money, which I also subject to the kind of rigorous tests to which you).

Your Grace,

A short and fascinating, indeed deeply worrying, article here, so thank you for that, YG .

I have a natural caution about jumping in regarding accusations leveled at a British Prime Minister, even one that I have as low an opinion on as Cameron, who is quite simply the worst one ever during my 62 years on this earth.

If all this is indeed true, and the weak denial, would push one in that direction, it helps to explain why he is deliberately, setting up any negotiation with the EU over the terms of our membership, from a position of such obvious weakness, by saying that he would never leave the EU. Incredible ! Is this man a real person ?
That was an incredible, almost unbelievable level of, either way, sheer incompetence and ignorance, of how one set about doing anything in the real world. If he wants to really, seriously negotiate then saying such a thing is crazy, and if he doesn't want to have a genuine negotiation , but just kick the can down the road, for political purposes, then again he is incompetent to think that the great British public will believe that he is serious, having said such a stupid thing. It insults our opinion.
Anyone who has ever negotiated the simplest of things, say buying a whatever, a car say, knows instinctively, intuitively, that it is a game of offer and bluff, on both sides, usually. But then one asks, has Cameron and his cronies ever operated in any part of what the rest of us refer to as "the real world".

Newspapers now need to tease out the truth of all this. For IF, we are being governed at the highest level of elected authority by someone who happily links up with shadowy organizations, concerned not so much with the "common good", as a purpose that they, a uber wealthy elite share, for their own reasons, undeclared to the world's population, then we, the British people, need to know. That is if we wish to preserve or should I say, cling to, some last vestige of a belief that this is indeed still a genuine functioning democracy, and not merely a country that preserves only the outwards show, the vote casting machinery, of democracy, whilst its true heart lies dead at the feet of the Brussels bureaucrats and America's selfish insistence on us, sacrificing ourselves for the American benefit of continuing an enhanced Atlantic relationship.
We need to know the truth regarding what this man Cameron is really about. Go to it sleuths of the press, I say.

Goodness! I have been pondering on the Collect of the Day in The Book of Common Purpose, which reads as follows:

'Almighty Plod, keep watchful and vigilant throughout all seasons lest those who seek justice and transparency conquer. Give sustenance to the tax-gatherers who work towards our goal, and fill our troughs with thy bounty. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, sleaze without end, Amen.

My brief look at Common Purpose leads me to rather cynically look at it as a very nice little gravy train for its founders and the people they persuade to join in.

But perhaps it is not all about free travel and free hotels at a talking shop that contributes little or nothing?

I am open to being convinced that my first impressions are wrong, but I am not waiting with bated breath.

I think Bliar the worst PM of my lifetime.

The aspiration of Common Purpose "graduates" is "to lead beyond authority".

I would have thought that was summed up in the Latin legal phrase "ultra vires".

When you get highly placed Local Government Officers, Civil Servants , company executives, police, officers of the armed forces, newspaper editors and even Churchmen all networking like mad, it is not likely to be for the pure benefit of mankind - especially if they believe they have an inborn superior right as chosen leaders.

At one CP conference, the founder Julia Middleton said it was about "the suppression of mutual loathing in the common pursuit of funding".

When I made enquiries of local official bodies which had sent their employees on these very expensive courses (some at £5000 or so and upwards ), at least one official certainly led beyond the authority of his official employment and notified my name to Common Purpose - so they could tell their chums in other official positions that my Freedom of Information enquiries were "vexatious".

We shall have to agree to disagree, I suggest.

I certainly wouldn't praise any of them, and maybe time eases ones judgement, but what does it for me is a number of things including,
the clear, total absence of any guiding principles,

the constant prevarication that flows from that,

his total lack of experience of the world outside the gilded cages that he has inhabited all of his life,

his total inability to relate to us in the the" lower" orders,
pretending to be a patriot whilst constantly undermining our independence,

decimating (almost literally, if not worse) our armed services and worst of all for a social conservative like myself,
the destruction of true marriage for everyone, representing an unthinking social vandalism, supported by zero reasoned argument whatsoever, which will further destroy normative family structures and hurt many Churches and Christians badly.

It appears Davey was having meetings much earlier as below dated 2010 December but has now been removed from C P site..perhaps Nick C had introduced him to Julia Middleton, head of Personnel and CP and bunged him on a course via Office of Deputy PM,

What Ernst finds scary is why was Common Purpose set up from the heart of Central government in 1997 in the first place if not to poison government and other areas of British life with secretly selected officials, out of fat prat Prescott’s office, the then deputy Prime Minister, and how was it allowed to be set up and initially forwarded as a public charity, but under Chatam house rules?((where they are honour bound to keep the proceedings secret) and which is directly contrary to the spirit, if not the letter, of FOI legislation.).

As far as Ernst can make head and tail out of the Beast, that would then make Common Purpose the first ever political charity, hatched by any British government as a cuckoo“d, throughout our supposed long "Democratic" history.

Surely it is clear that CP is aimed at people in senior positions in politics, education, policing, local government, business, health and the media - it has been estimated that possibly 1,000 senior employees in the BBC are members - and because of this it immediately becomes apparent, does it not, that any 'common purpose' is the reserve of those in these senior decision-making positions and those alone.

LiBLaBCon, They are all morphing nicely into one..hmmm.

As CP has infiltrated the higher echelons of government, the Civil Service, and many levels of business and media, all working for the greater good of the EU hegemony in the UK - no wonder that our "democracy" is virtually unrecognisable.

Your Grace,
'Common Purpose' has been subject to much criticism over recent years from those who have come into contact with it and suffered as a result.
Not only were they in bed with Tony, they were also very deep in bed with the NHS. I read reports of broken marriage after a nurse attended courses and suffered a character change.
Despite criticism, they have always come up smelling of roses and I am very disappointed but not surprised that Dave is also tied into them.

Edge Media on sky TV channel 200 had some very interesting discussion about the dangers of Common Purpose a semi secretive organisation run here by a woman called Julia Middleton way back in 2008 and 2009.

They get leaders to sign up and either call me Dave is very naïve – which I don't think he is – or
he really has no intention of ever leaving the EU and in fact all his waffle about renegotiating powers back to Britain is false empty rhetoric. He's weak and does not have leadership qualities therefore he clings to the leaders and the program of the EU.

He comes back from his meetings in Brussels full of fervour, fired with enthusiasm, one can see him trying hard to manipulate MPs in parliament as he reports back to them. He's just an EU lackey.

Edge Media is a controversial TV station but there are some interesting people on there sometimes.

Reading the reaction in the comment thread here, is it me or is there a bit of an overreaction? It might well be that this is an 'old boy' left wing net work or not. But there is a leap from this to commentators here trying to put forward an apparent conspiracy theory and or that 'a left wing masonic lodge' to quote the daily mail article (which means masonic lodges must be automatically rightwing?) is spreading its tenticles via the BBC or whatever.

But whilst we are covering covert groups and conspiracy theories, we must also include : the Bilderburg group , the council on foreign relations & the US Fed/Bank of Enguland and the 'elites'. And 'the Rothschild usury banking system' which somehow controls the world via these said organisations. Forgot to mention shape shifting reptiles, protocols of the elder of zion, the two babylons, the end times, biblical prophecy, false flags, 9/11 done by mossad, the Vatican ruling the world. Etc, etc.

No democracy should have it's employees and charities acting in a stealth like manner regarding 'supposed' simple leadership training.

Hello Blowers,

Thanks for that information, I agree that there is a big question over a charity which requires total anons, when it comes to debating public policy .

I can, btw, understand the reasoning in respect of Chatham House itself, e.g. Palestinian leader confesses to the Corrigan's of this world that, say, Jerusalem will always be the Capital of Israel, no matter what and that the best option is for peace is to stop the terrorist hamas and hezbollah from raining rockets on Israeli civilians or in private when the writing is on the wall, when it i admitted that the braveheart SNP don't have a chance of making Scotland secede.

Now as for David Cameron and his government, this is someone who'd try and convince the ancient Egyptians that the plagues of Egypt were a good thing for Egyptians and that they 'were all in this together' (excluding the ultra, ultra rich, who would naturally have to be left alone and given an income tax rate cut or at least pass on the last plague to the 'work shy, benefit scrounging, work at poundland with a degree' types that IDS doesn't like), well I'll say this as someone who was brought up as a centre right and paternalist conservative family, I WILL NOT vote conservative as long as the current regime is in place.

Well, actually, since you mention it, as a matter of fact it does. It's called the ACP (for Africa, Caribbean, and the Pacific). It is, in practice, the Colonial Office of the EU, originally set up to manage trade relations with the former British and French colonies but now, inevitably, having a very much broader sphere of action.

Two birds with one stone, Blowers: this link will not only tell you very much more than you ever wanted to know about the ACP but also, and importantly, I’d say it looks like an unbeatable cure for your insomnia.

Fabians/Demos/CP are closely related.

For Hannah, Bilderbergers/CFR etc./Fabians are also closely related.

This is the NWO and if you don't "belong to" or "think as" the group, you don't get the job etc.

You also don't get to be Prime Minister or President.

This is what it is all about and absolutely nothing to do with conspiracy theories.

We are watching the facts being played out.

I read the book "Beyond Authority" by Julia Middleton. The writing was at best mediocre but the main ideas were pure faschism. Jonah Goldberg described this type of faschism as benign. I strongly disagree with him on this.

CP is not a charity, it is just a tenticle of a very dangerous beast which lives off the blood of the common people (i.e. taxpayers).

"Blowers! Happy Jack thinks that it is very bad calling someone "fat prat Prescott (Only mentioned it lad cause it was what him Mam Phyllis called him when he'd eaten his whole family's KFC bargain bucket". Shame on you (I feel shame for mentioning the term of endearment from his mother without the gluttonous story that accompanied it). Mr Prescott can't help being fat(Truth. KFC and McDonald's are strangely addictive, requiring more buckets and mega meals to try and satisfy, are thy not, my boy?*Chuckles*) and if ever went to one of these training groups then they mustn't offer anger management(and must supply armed security to protect the buffet?)."

Ernst has a very low estimation of politician after a little chat he had with father whilst still young.

Young Ernst went to his Dad and asked, "What is politics?"

Dad says, "Well, son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me Capitalism. Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the People. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future.Now, think about that and see if that makes sense. Off to bed with you lad.

So little Ernst goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.

Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has soiled his nappy, so the clever little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep.

Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up exasperated and goes back to bed.

The next morning, young Ernst says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now."

The father says, "Good, Ernst, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about."

The little fellow replied, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored, and the Future is in Deep S**t."

May old Ernst help further your political education;

Political Philosophies Explained Using Simple Two-Cow Terms

SOCIALISM You have two cows. You keep one and give one to your lazy neighbour.

COMMUNISM You have two cows. The government takes them both and provides you with sour milk on your way to the Gulag.

FASCISM You have two cows. The government takes them and sells you the milk at Wonga rates, to fund the war effort.

BUREAUCRACY You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, and then pours it down the drain in front of you.

CAPITALISM You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.The bull produces Sh*t and you now become an entrepreneur on E Bay.

CORPORATE You have two cows. You sell one, force the other to produce the milk of four cows, then act completely surprised when it drops down dead.

DEMOCRACY You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point that you must sell them both in order to pay the taxes to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your Government and the Department for International Development.

PURE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbours decide who gets the milk.

REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbours then pick someone to decide who gets the milk.

BRITISH DEMOCRACY: The government promises to give you two cows if you vote for it. After the election, the Prime Minister and family is in court for speculating in cow futures on LSE via external business affairs. The press dubs the affair "Cowgate". A Powdered Milk giant sues press via new press regulator for slanderous use of their trade mark. They are hacked off!

MILITARY DICTATORSHIP: You have two cows. The State takes both of them and shoots you.

ANARCHY: You have two cows. Either you sell the milk at what they believe is a fair price or your neighbours kill you and take the cows.

Trust this helps, Jack lad?!

To pass the time, he asked what were their IQs.

The first replied '190'. "Wonderful," exclaimed Einstein. "We can discuss the contribution made by Ernest Rutherford to atomic physics, climate change bunkum and my theory of general relativity".

The second answered '150'. "Good," said Einstein. "I look forward to discussing the role of Great Britain's nuclear generating legislation in the quest for sustainable energy".

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11 = 98 % Only

11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5 = 96 % Only

1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100 %

B U L L * * * T
2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20 = 103%

Shocking, is it not? Now you know what it takes, start where you left off!

"His advice to anyone taking one is too aim low (Aim Low, Reach Your Goals, Avoid Disappointment.
!! ;-) ). Points do not make prizes when ATOS and the DWP is involved! "

How many DWP and ATOS Assessors does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. At least 4, plus a victim/claimant. One to call the claimant in for an appointment to discuss any previous experience of light bulbs and demand they screw it in for them, a second to supervise the claimant so they know there are practical courses available for motivation and confidence building run daily in 'screwing in bulbs', a third to start nit-picking about the way the bulb is being screwed in and the excessive amount of time being taken by the claimant, and a fourth to screw the claimant over by assessing him, obviously as a slacker and fully fit for work.
They all take the credit, though none of them actually touched the bloody light bulb in the first place, except the victim/claimant, who has now been stuck on daily courses in Bulb Management!.

Very good, Mr Blowers.

Happy Jack will not share his points but once he figured out what they meant his approach to all these tests now is to enter a dream state and say "screw you; I no understand" when pressed. This must be said in a distressed and very polite, compliant manner. Happy Jack finds this works wonders.

Happy Jack is wondering what this has to do with the CP and doesn't want to have his comments removed. He will say a very goodnight to you, friend. Remember to give Mrs Blowers a big kiss and a warm cuddle and tell her how much you love her. You could even give her a quick gum nibble.

Dear Jack

Things Ernst is aware of that help when dealing with ATOS or DWP assessors and increasing those required points!

Go to assessments in army fatigues and when asked why, say, "I can't talk about it".

"Hi-lite" your shoes in fluorescent green. Tell assessors that you haven't lost your shoes since you did this.

Every time the assessors asks you to do something, ask them if they want fries with that.

When the assessors hands you a piece of paper with your net appointment , finger it, and whisper huskily, "Mmmmmmm, that feels soooooo good!".

Walk sideways into the assessment interview.

While going to the 4th floor in the lift, gasp dramatically every time the doors open.

Say to your assessor, "I like your style" and shoot him with double-barreled fingers.

Babble incoherently at the assessors then ask "Did you get all that, I don't want to have to repeat it".

Reply to everything the assessors says with "that's what YOU think?".

Make beeping noises when a large person backs up near you in the waiting area.

Kneel in front of the water cooler and drink directly from the nozzle, in plain sight of assessor.

Finish all your sentences to the assessors with the words "IN ACCORDANCE WITH PROPHESY."

Signal that a conversation is over by clamping your hands over your ears and grimacing.

Shout random numbers while assessor is counting the number of assessments done..

Repeat the following conversation a few times: "Do you hear that?" "What?" "Never mind, it's gone now." This unnerves the assessors nicely.

As much as possible, skip rather than walk into the interview.

When nearly done in the assessment, announce "no, wait, I messed it up," and repeat again.

Ask assessors what gender they are.

While making presentations on the enforced course in Understanding What Employers Are Looking For, occasionally bob your head like a parakeet.

Ask your assessors mysterious questions and then scribble their answers in a notebook. Mutter something about "psychological profiles".

Discreetly clasp hold of someone's hand and whisper: 'can you feel it?' from the corner of your mouth.

Draw enormous genitalia on your notepad and discreetly show it to the assessors for their approval.

When refreshments are presented on the confidence building course , immediately distribute one biscuit to each of the other attendees, then systematically smash each one with your fist in front of them.

Write the words 'he/she fancies you' on your notepad and show it to the person next to you on the course, while indicating under the table with your pen.

Respond to a serious question with: 'I don't know what to say, obviously I'm flattered, but it's all happened so fast'.

Reconstruct the meeting in front of you using action figures you rough with you from your child's toy box and when anyone moves re-arrange the figures accordingly.

Draw a chalk circle around one of the chairs then avoid sitting on it, when the meeting starts. When someone does eventually sit in it, cover your mouth and gasp.

Mount the joined desks in the course room and walk along their length before taking your seat and staring at the large monitor.

Repeat every idea they express on the course in a baby voice whilst moving your hand like a chattering mouth.

Gradually push yourself closer and closer to the door on your chair.

Drop meaningless & confusing management speak into conversations with the instructor such as: " what's the margin of success here, Marvin?" "When's this turkey going to get basted?" and "If we don't get this brook babbling we're all going to end up looking like doe-eyed Labradors"

Produce a hamster from your pocket and suggest throwing it to one another as a means of idea-exchange on the course.

Use a large hunting knife to point at your visual aids during your presentation.

Announce that you've run off some copies of the aims of the meeting agenda. Then hand out pieces of paper that read:
My secret agenda
1 Trample the weak
2 Triumph alone
3 Take British plumbers and builders and invade Poland. Lets see how they like it!
Re-collect them sheepishly and ask everyone to pretend they haven't seen them.

Leave long pauses in your speech at random moments during your chosen subject presentation . When someone is prompted to interject shout 'I AM NOT FINISHED, AM I'.

This should help get you other ESA points required.

Blowers. Your best interest always at heart, lad.

Your Grace has correctly identified the working of Common Purpose but I see no correlation with the think tank 'Demos'. Demos is gradually relieving the Church of England of its leadership in many ways the gretest of which is the proliferation of highly paid executive assistants to

You have two cows. The King realises that a happy and contented society will render to his issue a secure future.
He will then tax you as little as possible. He will write laws that are fair to all and that will promote prosperity in the realm.
He will hope that your two cows will turn into four and that all his subjects will abound in milk and meat.

It is an old system that, all in all, surpasses any of the others.

Well having known little about 'C P' (conning the people?)and had a look at' C P ' it seems to be a process of grooming future leaders to' take over' when the EU gains an unassailable position?. A 'government ' of unelected officials to do the bidding of the EU without question and unhindered by the democratic process?.

So exalt, lift up on high the Name of Jesus

Just to add to Mr Blofeld's good advice about behaviour at the assessors and on the course to increase points, can I just add the appropriate dress code to maximise impact:

Make sure your waistcoat is noticeably incorrectly buttoned.

Wear a wig ensuring it sits slightly to one side so anyone talking to you will have a deep desire to want to put it straight.

And finally you must eat cold custard before the meeting so that a nice little blob hangs on one of your longer moustache or beard hairs, wobbling every time you speak. Maybe a little green cabbage stuck nicely to your front tooth to complete the look.

A serious demeanour must be kept throughout the ordeal.

Good luck.

Anything that could enhance that very important first impression is priceless).

July 7th, 2011, Julia Middleton wrote on her website

“I went to the House of Lords last night in my role as a trustee of the Media Standards Trust to support the launch of Hacked Off, a campaign to get a proper enquiry into phone hacking. The meeting was set up a while ago so you could say that after the announcement yesterday it was no longer needed, but of course that’s not true. It’s not just about getting an enquiry, it’s about getting the right enquiry, with the right brief and the right time scale. We can’t wait two years!

There were some great people there who have stood out from others in their bravery. And its real bravery – if the media does not like you, life can be very tough. But as we congratulated Chris Bryant, Max Mosley, John Prescott, Norman Fowler and many others, you could see some looking around nervously. Hugh Grant was there too, catapulting himself into this – I hope he keeps on being brave. I hope they all do….”

This is proof that the above names were and are connected to Julia Middleton and the campaign for Media Reform from as far back as July 2011.

“In the autumn of 1988 Julia Middleton formed Common Purpose, an international leadership development organisation which gives leaders the inspiration, the knowledge and the connections they need to produce real change at work and in society. Common Purpose now offers leadership development opportunities worldwide in 46 cities in 18 countries. Since 1989, more than 40,000 leaders have completed one or more Common Purpose courses”

It cannot be emphasised enough how much damage a well-organised, meticulously planned, far reaching and insidious program is capable of changing the collective social and mental structure of society and governance across the globe.

Common Purpose is a political "charity" using Behavioural Modification, a Charity, based in Great Britain, which creates ‘Future Leaders’ of society. Common Purpose selects individuals and ‘trains’ them to its vision of how society should work, pulling the levers of power, teaching how Common Purpose ‘graduates’ should use this knowledge to lead ‘Beyond Authority’.

Both candidates and ‘trained graduates’ will have no real understanding of Common Purpose’s wider role to help achieve a political and social paradigm shift in the UK.

The real objective, would appear to be to replace our traditional UK democracy with the new regime of the EU superstate – the Fourth Reich. Common Purpose has infiltrated every office in government, private, public and corporate across the board, working under Chatham House Rules. You would not recognise a Common Purpose graduate if your saw one, they blend in so well!

This regime now operates across the globe with a Common Purpose Project in the Whitehouse, commonly known as Progressives, running on similar lines to Saul Alinsky’s Community Organisers. The following are international Common Purpose Projects:

We are now witnessing the actual workings of a carefully contrived, decades long agenda for change. “Unity in Diversity,” the motto of the European Union! The last war never ended. Common Purpose is being achieved by stealth in the guise of good leadership and charity, its aims and objectives have superceded the former tactics of battle lines and bombs.

I leave you with this quote:

“… certain segments of the population must be programmed to be robotic drones, incapable or unwilling to think on their own. In this scenario, the ‘individual’ is the enemy of the state. Individual thinking and choice are not conducive to ‘peace and progress’ and not permitted. Only by being part of ‘The Team,’ can the individual (follower) accomplish objectives or ‘outcomes.’ Of course, these ‘objectives and outcomes’ are directed by the bureaucracy. This phase of population training is currently being accomplished by the public school system with such programs as ‘outcomes based education,’ and the introduction of New Ageism into the classroom. One has to remember that Adolf Hitler pioneered a similar tactic with his Hilterjugend and state-sponsored school system. To quote the Fuhrer, “When an opponent declares: ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I calmly say ‘your child belongs to me already. Who are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing but this new community.’”

Common Purpose recruits and trains ‘leaders’ to be loyal to the directives of Common Purpose and the EU, instead of to their own employers or governmental departments, which they then undermine or subvert: the NHS being a classic example.

Common Purpose is identifying leaders in all levels of our government to assume power when our nation is replaced by the European Union, in what they call “THE POST DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY". They are learning to rule without democracy, and will bring the EU police state home to every one of us.

It is a pro EU political cult, which uses cult-training methods within a classy quasi leadership framework.

They are very dangerous, and those who have really been influenced by the training (it uses Delphi techniques), can be manipulated to follow the NEW agenda. Common Purpose leaders (of which David Cameron is one) are tasked to promote their agenda over and above that person’s organisations. They are creating the NEW society in which Common Purpose leaders will be in control.

Common Purpose training causes personality changes in some people. Common Purpose is also the glue that enables fraud to be committed across government departments to reward pro European local politicians. Corrupt deals are enabled that put property or cash into their pockets by embezzling public assets.

Law and Constitution

It has members in the Government, the Civil Service, NHS, BBC, the police, the legal profession, the church, many of Britain’s 8,500 quangos, local councils, schools, social services, government ministries, Parliament, and it controls many Regional Development Agencies.

Cressida Dick is the Common Purpose senior police officer who authorised the ‘Shoot to kill’ policy without reference to Parliament, the law or the British Constitution. Jean de Menezes was one of the innocents who died as a result. Her shoot to kill policy still stands today.

Common Purpose trained Janet Paraskeva, the Law Society’s Chief Executive Officer.

Surprising numbers of lawyers are Common Purpose members. It is no coincidence that justice is still more expensive, more flawed and more corrupt.

Common Purpose is backed by the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) and the Head of the Civil Service Commission is a member.

The Common Purpose motto is "leading beyond authority".

The Common Purpose Chief Executive is Julia Middleton supported by Sir David Bell, Chair of the Financial Times. In Common Purpose terms, ‘beyond authority’ means to abuse the authority of your paid employment for control and private gain. “Beyond authority” is Mrs Middleton’s phrase for dissolving democracy, and Common Purpose are doing this on a vast scale.

Julia Middleton brand of leadership training, which is sold by her ‘charity’ for millions of pounds, most of it our taxes, to over 40,000 people largely in the public sector.

Her leadership is ‘one that can cope in unfamiliar territory’, ‘where leaders are taken beyond the closed doors of their own organisations". it directs people to undertake continual change, thus destroying the old, without specifying anything to change to. Confusion and inactivity results. Common Purpose has used this well established Frankfurt School subversion technique on the National Health Service, which it has been paralysed, and also on the Conservative Party, which it has destroyed.

In reality operating outside authority for the police, and many others, means operating illegally and without accountability. This does not bother Julia Middleton however, who urges Common Purpose leaders to "create their own legitimacy".

Common Purpose is an elitist ‘fifth column’, a criminal organisation with a subversive, corrupt and deeply fraudulent agenda.
