Default Re: Wanted… Puppet Masons

From The Guardian Newspaper N&Q website How could I find out which members of my local council are freemasons? The first route is to obtain a copy of the Masonic Yearbook (available for £12, inc p&p, from Freemasons Hall, Great Queen Street, London WC2B 5AZ). This is an encyclopaedia of the masonic fraternity's nationwide structure and contains a who's who of hundreds of leading freemasons. Check this list as a starting point. Each area also has a listing of all its masonic lodges and chapters, indeed, the yearbook reveals that, for the questioner's address, a borough of Greenwich Lodge - number 2332 - was founded in 1888. It undoubtably serves as a lodge for both masonic councillors and council officers in Greenwich. The masonic yearbook reveals that this lodge holds its annual inaugural meeting at Freemason's Hall in Covent Garden on the third Saturday each December - this year Saturday 20th. Simply turn up on the day and watch your local masonic councillors arrive for the event! Alternatively, a foolproof method of identifying masonic councillors is to ask a friendly non-mason councillor to table a motion at the next full council meeting proposing that the council should set up its own voluntary register of freemasons. Whether or not the motion is carried, under local government regulations, all councillors who are freemasons will have to declare an interest before the matter is debated, and thus reveal their status.
