Bryan George, Jones PA may have more to play in the ‘Thoughts of Oscar’ mess than I had previously considered.
Below is a well known storey about Bryan George and his desire to move up the Freemason ladder.
You must conceal all crimes of your brother Masons…and should you be summoned as a witness against a brother Mason be always sure to shield him…It may be perjury to do this, it is true, but you’re keeping your obligations.
Handbook of Masonry, page 183
Many a time we hear talk in the local watering holes that certain people are well connected within the local masons, how true this is one can only guess, however when one digs a bit deeper at some of the area’s more prominent figures, a blind man would be able to see what’s going on.
Certain elected officials ‘MP David Jones’ are very open about their membership of the local lodge although at times profess to not having attend for years, we wonder why they are so cagey about being a mason, especially when their employee ‘Bryan George’ is an active member…so active that after first joining and going through the initiation palaver, he was most put out that he didn’t have a dark blue apron like some members, he asked how would he able to get one, the story we were told was that a member jokingly replied ‘donate £1000‘ the following meeting, he was there with his cheque book…silly boy.
One has to wonder about what gets discussed after the meetings, when members trot off for a meal or drinks, the deals that get made…just think of all the various members locally, police officers, solicitors, dj’s, builders, shopkeepers….just how many of these have benefitted from their masonic connections?
