The enormous power of the City began to accelerate with the opening of the world’s first international stock exchange in London and has continued unabated to the present day.
The City either directly or indirectly, controls (including here in Australia) all mayors, councils, regional councils, multi-national and tans-national banks all the major British banks have their main office’s there, along with branch office’s for 385 foreign banks, including 70 from the United States. It is there you will find the Bank of England, the Stock Exchange, Lloyds of London, the Baltic Exchange (shipping contracts), Fleet Street (home of publishing and newspaper interests),the London Commodity Exchange (to trade coffee, rubber, sugar and wool), and the London Metal Exchange, corporations, judicial systems (through Old Bailey, Temple Bar and the Royal Courts of Justice in London), the IMF, World Bank, Vatican Bank (through N.M. Rothschild & Sons London Italian subsidiary Torlonia), European Central Bank, United States Federal Reserve Bank, The Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland which oversees all the Reserve Banks around the world.
It is the financial centre of the World, it is often termed the ‘wealthiest square mile on earth.’ The Twelve Great Livery Companies domiciled in Guildhall (or the hall of the City of London Corporation). As a result of a ‘gentleman’s agreement between the sovereign and the City merchants and bankers made many hundreds of years ago, the Lord Mayor is officially head of the Corporation and is allowed to operate independently of the sovereign. When the Queen of England goes to visit the City she is met by the Lord Mayor at Temple Bar, the symbolic gate of the City. She bows and asks permission to enter his private, Sovereign State. During such state visits “the Lord Mayor in his

robes and chain, and his entourage in medieval costume, outshines the royal party, which can dress up no further than service uniforms.” The Lord Mayor leads the queen into his city and the Lord Mayor is the monarch and the queen his subject. The subject always stays a pace or two behind.
As the former British Prime Minister of England during the late 1800’s Benjamin Disraeli wrote “So you see the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes”. (Coningsby, The Century Co, N.Y. 1907, p. 233).
In 1956 the then Prime Minister, Sir Anthony Eden launched war to regain the Suez Canal. It had scarcely begun when The City let it be known that in a few days he would have no money to fight it; the pound would collapse. He stopped the war and was turned out of office by his own party. History clearly reveals that the British government is the bond slave of the “indivisible and inaudible” force centered in the City. The City calls the tune and the “visible and audible leaders” are mere puppets who dance to the tune on command. They have no power. They have no authority. In spite of all the outward show they are mere pawns in the game of the financial elite.
However, the wealth of the world held in the Corporation is ultimately the sovereign’s, because, should the gentleman’s agreement break down, the sovereign has the power to “rescind” the Corporation’s independence.
“The Illustrated Universal History,” 1887, records that Great Britain emerged from her long conquest with France with increased power and national glory. Her Empire was greatly expanded in all parts of the world; Her supremacy on the sea was undisputed; her wealth and commerce increased but with all this national prosperity, the lower classes of English people where sunk in extreme wretchedness and poverty, having been bled dry during the struggle of the previous twenty years.
It was at this juncture (1815) that the House of Rothschild seized control of the British economy, the Bank of England and the City—and through their other branches, control of the other European nations.
