In 1901, the death of Queen Victoria brought about the succession of an inadequate and awkward man. Prince Albert, who took the officially name – Prince Albert Edward VII.

His specialisation was not politics, but gambling. He was known for most of his life as Dirty Berty. It was well known he was much more familiar with houses of ill-repute, than the Houses of Parliament.

This left a power vacuum, easily filled by the well-connected aristocratic and wealthy elite.

American Professor Carroll Quigley in 1949, wrote a book called the Anglo-American Establishment. This book, not published until 1981, was a historical document of the development of the UK deep state by the secret society he called the Milner Group, sometimes referred to as the Roundtable Group.

One of the more famous quotations of the book reads:

No country that values its safety should allow what the Milner Group accomplished – that is, that a small number of men would be able to wield such power in administration and politics, should be given almost complete control over the publication of documents relating to their actions, should be able to exercise such influence over the avenues of information that create public opinion, and should be able to monopolise so completely the writing and teaching of the history of their own period.

The Anglo-American Establishment

Milner takes its name from Lord Alfred Milner (1854-1025). Chief-confidant of the world renowned Industrialist Cecil Rhodes. Rhodes in the late 1800's had formed his own secret society, based on what he had read from the Bavarian Illuminati which was founded by Adam Weishaupt.

It was in part this policy of secrecy that enabled his company De Beers to monopolise the worlds diamond market. De Beers is still today on Old Bond Street.

After the death of Cecil Rhodes in 1902, the tremendous wealth he'd created during his lifetime, was donated towards a creation for a larger global secret society. The original base just off Pall Mall, in St James's Square.

“The Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) is nothing from the Milner Group "writ large". It was founded by the Group, and to this day is the Milner Group in its widest aspect. It is the legitimate child of the Round Table organization, just as the latter was the legitimate child of the "Closer Union" movement organized in South Africa in 1907.”

This secretive group has been dictating foreign policy, manipulating public opinion and even selecting Prime Minsters of this country for the past 100 years. It is based in the blue doored – Chatham House, 10 St James's Square. Home to the Royal Institute of International Affairs.

You may have heard of the Chatham House rules. The rules of secrecy. Secret meetings, secret agreements. It is really of no surprise that around the back of Chatham House. There is Mason's Yard.

In Mason's Yard, No. 13 is a masonic Members Lodge today called Scotch of St James nightclub, famously frequented by Sir Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder.

Further along to its left, a conspicuous blue door. Opposite Scotch is the Chequers Tavern pub, previously called Mason's Arms. Think chequered pattern in masonic lodges. Chequer's is also the name of the Prime Minister's country home. The chequered pattern around policeman's hat is also a clue...

Where did John Lennon and Yoko Ono First Meet?
John and Yoko officially met in Indica. A bookshop and art gallery in St James’s, London just before all the Beatles left for India.

The yard is also where Yoko first met John Lennon... well according to the powers that be.
