Our Common Betrayal – Part 1
Is there something rather sinister hidden beneath the fluffy Big Society label that the British public find unpalatable?

– Mark 8: 36.
This article is the first of a five part series. In today’s article I shall be presenting readers with the findings of my research into the Big Society concept and will reveal the identities of some of the actors working behind the scenes. In part 2 we will explore, by reference to one UK example, the difference between Participatory Democracy and Representative Democracy. In Part 3 we will look at the leadership attributes favoured by the United Nations system of Global Governance and consider evidential links to a semi-secret International Leadership
Training Organisation headquartered in the UK.
In Part 4 I will introduce readers to a video presentation in which an American researcher presents details of some of the Global movements that he strongly believes are working to create a New World Order.
I will continue with my usual practice of incorporating hyperlinks to my information sources within the text of each article.
Cameron’s Big Society Idea?
The February, 2011 article Cameron relaunches Big Society ‘with moral purpose’ indicated that sources close to BigDave ‘acknowledged that there had been a failure of communication over the Big Society which had damaged the Coalition’s ability to sell its key policy in a number of areas’.
I ask: – Has the Government’s communication strategy failed to inspire a sceptical public to engage in a truly inspirational Government initiative, or, in the alternative, is there something rather sinister hidden beneath the fluffy Big Society label that the British public find unpalatable?
When talking about local responsibility in his speech speech to the Scottish Party Conference in May 2009 BigDave told his audience
He then tells his audience that
In his March 2010 Conservative Party Conference speech he announced that
Of course this isn’t BigDave’s idea and neither did it originate within the Conservative Party. The Conservative home blogsite admits that
Who Was Saul Alinski?
What the Conservatives don’t tell you is that Saul Alinskli was the aspiring destroyer of capitalism whose book Rules for Radicals was dedicated to Lucifer. Alinski believed there was no right or wrong in politics, only what was necessary to seize power. He advocated subversion by infiltration of political parties and institutions, above all by the use of ‘community organisers’. You can examine an extract on Tactics from Chapter 7 of Rules for Radicals here.
Secret Big Society Awards
On January 2nd the Daily Express published an article David Cameron’s Secret ‘Big Society’ Awards in which they drew attention to the fact that
If the public online comments are a reliable barometer of public opinion the Big Society agenda is likely to attract increasing public resistance. Here are two examples
The second commenter writes:
What Is Communitarianism?
Communitarianism is a ‘Third Way’ compromise between Capitalism and Communism. Communitarianism is not Fascism nor is it Communism, but a synthesis of these opposing ideologies which preceded it. It draws government-business partnerships from Fascism and employs group decision-making from Communism. Communitarianism will resemble a corporate state (Fascism) in which the elite will work under capitalist rules to continue generating wealth while the working class will be controlled by Communist model laws. The Communitarian syntheses incorporates not only elements of Fascism and Communism but also Globalism.
Communitarians believe that attaining a healthy society involved the successful merger of the 3 sectors of society. It requires a merger of the government sector, the private sector (business) and the social sector (which includes the churches). This merger is known also known as “Drucker’s 3-legged stool”, named after its main proponent, Peter Drucker, who is considered to be the father of modern management. Drucker believed that the only way to persuade the world to accept change is to engage all three sectors of society, working together to effect change.
In Drucker’s model the church becomes interconnected with the state and corporate interests – in reality, becoming subservient to these interests.
In the United States one of the main organisations manipulating the Churches into this Communitarian partnership is the Leadership Network. Within the United Kingdom the prime suspect must be the leadership training organisation – Common Purpose.
Let’s examine a number of examples of how Common Purpose people slot into ‘Drucker’s’ 3-legged stool’ in the context of the Big Society.
Big Society and Common Purpose
In October 2010 the website Philanthropy UK announced that the Community Foundation for Merseyside had produced a report in response to Prime Minister David Cameron’s call for voluntary sector input into the Big Society idea. It was also reported that Professor Phil Redmond CBE, a champion of the area and writer of the Liverpool soap opera Brookside, welcomed the report and said:
Amongst the trustees of the Community Foundation for Merseyside I find Rosemary Hawley, Chair of Knowlsey Primary Care NHS Trust, Local Magistrate and Committee Member of Merseyside Common Purpose.
The Community Foundation for Merseyside is reportedly one of the largest charitable grant-makers in Merseyside, having awarded over £39 million of grants to local community groups and voluntary organisations throughout Merseyside in its 11-year history. It is part of the Community Foundation Network UK which claims itself to be Changing Communities – Transforming Society.
What Is A Community Foundation?
According to Matthew Bowcock, Chairman of the Community Foundation UK, community foundations are:
The Community Foundation network UK website also tells us that
A search of the Charity Commission website provided a little more information on Community Foundation Network UK. For example, on page 9 of their 2009 accounts we are told that
In addition the accounts also tell us that Community Foundation Network UK has been
This is blatant astro-turfing which we will examine further in part 2 of this series of articles.
Amongst the Board Members of the Community Foundation Network UK sits Graham Tuttle of the Norfolk Community Foundation. Graham is a 1998 Common Purpose Matrix Graduate. Linkedin tells us that he graduated whilst with Marsh Global Claims Management Company named RECLAIM. In the ‘Love Norfolk ..support Norfolk Community Foundation’ event held on 27th October 2009 the welcome address was given by Graham Tuttle whilst the 7:45 pm Question Time slot was Chaired by Simon Delf of Common Purpose.
My next example of Common Purpose involvement in Community Foundations is found by reference to a BBC press office report. It reads:
If we examine the Quartet Community Foundation for the West of England we discover that Deb Appleby was appointed by the Trustees as Chief Executive and took up her position on 12th July 2010. She had been Head of Policy & Performance at Dorset County Council since 2005 and she spent her early career as a chartered accountant before moving on to run Bristol Common Purpose. UK Column researchers have also discovered that Ronnie Brown, the Development Director for Quartet Community Foundation is a Bristol 1996 Common Purpose Matrix Graduate.
The Big Society Network
The Big Society Network website tells its readers that the Big Society is
The paragraph above is as clear an example of the use of aesopian language as I can imagine. The Big Society is obviously one where the State seeks to cascade its control, via it’s networked Common Purpose Graduates, down to every local grassroots organisation in the country. The blurring of the boundaries between the public sector, private sector and the third sector raises fundamental questions surrounding the issues of accountability to the tax paying public and transparency and openness.
I suspect that Council taxpayer money that should have been allocated to run local libraries, leisure centres etc will be re-channelled via the network of Community Foundations to be spent on United Nations Local Agenda 21 projects.
The Big Society Equals United Nations Agenda 21
GovToday, the UK’s online resource for the public sector, has a page dedicated to the Sustainable Communities 2010: Building the Big Society Conference and Exhibition which took place in November 2010. It says
If you Google ‘Sustainable’ Communities’ you will find that it it part of the United Nations Agenda 21 Programme. For those readers who are not sure what Agenda 21 is then I suggest that you watch these videos.
Evidently, your council tax is being spent by your local council who have been covertly implementing United Nations policies on British soil without either your knowledge or your consent.
Big Society And The Church of England
In a spirited effort to convince a sceptical British public of the positive merits of the Big Society up pops the bearded Satanist leader of the Church of England.
‘David Cameron’s ‘Big Society’ can be understood by flicking through the pages of a 400 year old book, the Archbishop of Canterbury says: Big Society? You can find it in the Bible, says Dr. Rowan Williams.
Is this the passage he refers to, I wonder?
– 2 Cor 11:13 – 15.
