What Is Common Purpose?

"Common Purpose ... is the self-described 'leadership development' charity funded by Julia Middleton in 1989.  Actually ... it's much more dangerous than that. Indeed, I'd argue that apart from the BBC it's the organisation that has probably done most to inculcate politically correct thinking and practices across the entirety of our culture. Common Purpose is the Cultural Marxist outfit which has infiltrated and subverted every one of our public (and many of our private) institutions" [source].

"What are [the values of Common Purpose]?  Everything you hate about political correctness, basically. Everything you associate with Cultural Marxism. The kind of values which Hayek, in his Road to Serfdom, would have classified as 'collectivist': that is, the values you associate with totalitarian regimes like the Soviet communists and the Nazis, but most definitely not values - or so Hayek and his ilk would argue - that have any place in a liberal democracy"

"Let me give you a few examples [of the values of Common Purpose]:  identity politics feminism; anything to do with 'sustainability' and 'diversity';  the idea that the Nanny State knows better than individuals how people should live their lives;  anti-white policies masquerading as anti-racism;  discrimination against private schools and other designated boo-word elites pretending [sic] to be about fairness;  equality of outcome rather than equality of opportunity;  censorship;  compulsory promotion of LGBTQ values in schoolsclimate propaganda in schools;  special treatment for favoured minority groups (e.g. Muslims);  special treatment for unfavoured minority groups (e.g. Tommy Robinson and the white working classes generally);  every stupid policy on gender, race, disability and so on emanating from the annoying [useful idiots] in your HR department at work" [source].


Leading Beyond Authority

"There is no doubt that the people who constitute Common Purpose - the Alumni - can fulfil the purpose of providing leadership in our communities whether modest or at the highest level. When we do, the world will become a better place"
[Robert Care, Chair, Common Purpose Charitable Trust, quoted at: source].

"We have long stated that by blurring the boundaries between people, professions, public and private sectors, responsibility and accountability, Common Purpose encourages graduates to believe that as new selected leaders, they can work together, outside of the established political and social structures, to achieve a paradigm shift or CHANGE. They call this doctrine 'Leading Beyond Authority'. In doing so, the allegiance of the individual becomes 're-framed' on Common Purpose colleagues and their network"


Government and EU

"The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister runs the EU's Common Purpose organization in Britain, which has already used these [Frankfurt School] techniques to train 19,500 leaders for what they chillingly call 'the post democratic era'. Common Purpose assists the spread of this subversion and EU style corruption throughout our government bureaucracies. If you see public land being sold, or some EU funded regeneration or redevelopment project suddenly blossoming, you can guarantee large sums of money will be sticking to the fingers of officials who are Common Purpose trained"

Common Purpose is "[t]he EU's criminal local control organisation with 25,000 members: 60% involved. Many members think it's all above board, and do not realise they have not been selected"


Institutions Infected with Common Purpose

"Common Purpose is entrenched in the NHS, the BBC, the Church, the legal profession, the Police, Schools and the Education sector, Social Services, City, County Councils, Local Councils, Government Offices of the Regions, Regional Development Agencies, Regional Assemblies, and in the 8,500 so called charity/quangos"

"Common Purpose have penetrated the BBC, where four hundred of them control news and current affairs, our newspapers, council executives, the Church of England, the NHS which over 20 years they have deliberately destroyed from within, social services our police, and many more. Common Purpose members control the Quango budget: £167 billion, and the NHS budget: £90 billion - i.e. about £210 billion, or 1/3 of our taxes"

"It has members in the NHS, BBC, the police, the legal profession, the church, many of Britain's 7,000 quangos, local councils, the Civil Service, government ministries, Parliament, and it controls many RDAs (Regional Development Agencies)"


Change Agents / Fifth Columns / Silo Thinking / Hive Mind

Silo thinking: "Withholding information from other departments".  It is independent action rather than 'unified' or 'multilateral' action.

"Excited by the use of a 'fifth column' to drive forward change through the House of Lords, Mrs. Middleton is keen to blur and break down boundaries between individuals, organisations, the public and private sectors, who will then need to 'break out of their organizational silos' to form partnerships and act. The language is reminiscent of a form of Gramscian soft fascism, where western democracies can be overturned by undermining traditional beliefs and values, and the slow secretive merging of the public and private sectors into a state controlled partnership"

"In regard to our overall mission, ICLEI will: ... Integrated policies: Strengthen the various areas in which we work with Members ... while stressing the need for integrated policies and management principle. Silo thinking is outdated"
[ICLEI Seoul Plan, quoted in the section: 'Monitoring Local Agendas 21/2030' at source].


Local Councils and Regional Development Agencies

"Council Officers are having secret meetings with, for example, property developer Common Purpose friends. No agendas and no minutes. Common Purpose Graduates from the public quango sectors such as Regional development Agencies attend, and have the power to award large sums of public money to projects. It is the worst national example of cronyism, closed contract bids, fraud and corruption. And unseen to the general public"


The Police Forces

"In reality, operating outside authority for the police, and many others, means operating illegally and without accountability"

Cressida Dick:

"Course Date: Oxford 1996-97 / Course Location: Oxfordshire / Course Name: Matrix / Job Title: Commander Cross Border and Organised Crime / Location: Oxfordshire / Organisation: Metropolitan Police, New Scotland Yard" [source].

"Cressida Dick is the Common Purpose senior officer who authorised the 'Shoot to Kill' policy without reference to parliament, the law or the British Constitution. Jean de Menezes was one of the innocents who died as a result. Her shoot to kill policy still stands today" [source].

Hugh Orde:

"Course Date: West London 1994-95 / Course Location: West London / Course Name: Matrix / Job Title: Chief Constable / Location: Belfast / Organisation: Police Service of Northern Ireland, Headquarters" [source].

David Warcup:

"Course Date: Newcastle 1993-94 / Course Location: Newcastle / Course Name: Matrix / Job Title: Deputy Chief Constable / Location: Tyne / Organization: Northumbria Police, Newcastle upon Tyne, Ponteland" [source].

"Deputy Chief Officer Warcup is a senior Common Purpose graduate having completed the MATRIX course in 1993/4 whilst Deputy Chief Constable of Northumbria Police Newcastle.  UK newspapers ... have carried major stories concerning the attack by Jersey Police Deputy Chief Officer David Warcup on Lenny Harper, his predecessor in the Jersey force, over possible child murders at Haut de la Garenne. ... Warcup launched a devastating attack on Mr Harper, saying that had now 'ripped up' much of the evidence presented by his predecessor. Events seem to suggest that the new investigation team are keen to play down events at the Jersey care home. It appears strange that Mr Warcup should 'rip up' any evidence, no matter how questionable in such a serious case, particularly as it is evident from cases across the country that thousands of young children are being illegally and unlawfully taken from their families by Social Services, with the active support and backing of the police, courts and judiciary" [source].


The Social Services

"This exploitation [Social Services £1.2 billion child snatch fund] is enabled via the EU's Common Purpose, a criminal organisation that manipulates our legal and local government systems for private profit, using members operating inside and outside government. If social workers need a firm of solicitors to act corruptly, the Common Purpose network has solicitors as members. If they need to shut up parents and grandparents, the CP network has members in the police, including the Chief Constables of entire forces, who will arrest them on trumped up charges. If they need external psychiatrists to falsify reports, CP has them. It has magistrates and judges as members. The creation of massive 'trauma through injustice', the snatching of children for forced adoption, is just one of over 200 Frankfurt School subversion techniques implemented in Britain by the EU since the 1950s, with Common Purpose and the Freemasons implementing at the local level"

Carol Wilson:

"Course Date: North London 1995-6 / Course Location: North London / Course Name: Matrix / Job Title: Assistant Director Comm/Health & Social Services / Location: London / Organisation: London Borough of Haringey, Civic Centre" [source].

"London Borough of Haringey Social Services, as implicated in the disgusting murder of Baby P, facilitated by a catalogue of SS incompetence, lies, cover-ups, as well as vicious bullying of an innocent whistleblower, has been penetrated by Common Purpose. More than one staff member has been CP trained. Assistant Director of Community Health and Social Services Carol Wilson attended the 1995 1996 Matrix Common Purpose Course" [source].


The MSM and Press

"Following the exposure of Common Purpose in the Leveson Inquiry and the subsequent campaign to gag the press and media in Britain via the Media Standards Trust and their offshoot the Hacked Off Campaign, Common Purpose and leaders Sir David Bell and Julia Middleton seem to have disappeared. Despite ever increasing criticism of the devious and bullying nature of Hacked Off - an organisation campaigning for honesty and transparency but which fails to declare its own funders, there has been a wall of press and media silence over Bell, Middleton and Common Purpose itself. In fact, the silence since the massive exposure of CP by the Daily Mail, Telegraph, and Sun has been deafening. Could a 'D Notice' or state gagging order have been issued we wonder?"

Robert Peston



"In the NHS we have witnessed the deliberate neglect and deaths of thousands of patients. The NHS management responsible under Sir David Nicholson shows no remorse or guilt, and certainly no one has resigned. Why should the big man? he was only carrying out his masters' orders, and David Cameron MP has backed him to the hilt. The implication is that the NHS is now controlled by low-empathy and 're-framed' individuals who see the old and seriously sick as detrimental to high profits or the efficient working of the State. Nazi Germany anyone?"

"The core of the rot in the NHS is the central Common Purpose Working Group. As usual a body which does not declare its members, for which minutes of the meetings seem to have gone astray ands about which simple questions have resulted in lies and conflicting information emanating from within the beast of the NHS. Why? ... the path seems to be leading to the deliberate 'killing off' of those useless eaters who stand no chance of becoming 'future leaders' in the transformed world so desired in the rewired consciousness of future leaders"

"If you thought that the primary role of the NHS was to provide curative health care for those suffering illness or injury the evidence we have uncovered suggest otherwise. The transformation is already towards preventative healthcare, privatisation of services and the 'nudging' of patients towards sustainable lifestyle choices. In some areas, if nudging doesn't produce the desired effects the NHS resorts to bullying. It now becomes obvious that the NHS is acting as a change agent for the common purpose"

"Undermining the NHS is Common Purpose's biggest success so far, with bureaucrats outnumbering hospital staff three to one"


The NHS and Agenda 21

"The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare (formerly known as the Campaign for Greener Healthcare) claims to be inspiring people to realise the vital importance of the overlap between their wellbeing and environmental sustainability, particularly in the field of healthcare. The CSH works closely with partners both within and outside the NHS. Its partners include: The Climate and Health Council, The Carbon Trust, 10:10 Campaign, The Sustainable Development Commission, and the NHS Sustainable Development Unit. According to their website: '[t]he NHS Forest is an exciting national project coordinated by the Centre of Sustainable Healthcare. One of this project's central aims is Greening the NHS Estates and planting 1 tree per employee amounting to 1.3 million trees within the next 5 years'"

The CSH "aims to help the NHS fulfil its potential as a leading sustainable and low carbon healthcare service. It claims that it does this by developing organisations, people, tools, policy and research which will enable the NHS to promote sustainable development and mitigate climate change. The NHS Sustainable Development Unit took part in the Rio+20 global UN Conference on Sustainable Development via a pre-recorded film, presented by Dr David Pencheon"

"There are a number of priority areas that NHS organisations are targeting to reduce carbon, improve efficiency and save money. For example, engaging staff and the public in sustainability [emphasis in original]. According to the NHS Sustainability Board's Leadership programme summary report (2010): 'Delivering a sustainable health system provides a positive vision for engaging with staff, organisations and the public to deliver transformational change'"

Behavioural Psychology

"We must remember that education where Common Purpose is involved really means re-framed where individuals have their views and values changed by applied psychology (mental reframing) rather than by reasoned debate and free will. As a reader of pointed out - where Common Purpose removes God-given free will it identifies itself as 'charity' pursuing a very dark agenda indeed. To stop it requires understanding, exposure and action"

"Common Purpose ... is now supported by a web of organisations, social enterprises, NGOs, charities and others promoting 'leadership' together with empowerment through applied behavioural psychology. The battle for our minds now includes government Nudging, Happiness and Mindfulness delivered in the covert drip drip drip of an anaesthetic"


Targeting the NaÔvety of Youth

"Common Purpose has, from its inception circa 1985, heavily targeted school children and young people. Its declared agenda has been to reframe young minds from 11 y.o. into matters of 'leadership, change and networking' with the objective of changing society at a local and global level. CP has been rather reluctant to explain exactly what change they are seeking, but clues are to be found in their widely pro-EU approach, and their desire to fill the 'invisible space between the the individual and the State with their people'. In targeting young minds with their quasi political change agenda, CP under the hand of Sir David Bell has worked to use the secretive Common Purpose networks to tap into education budgets and thus spread their 'charitable' political agenda at the expense of the taxpayer"

"To date, Common Purpose has 'trained' many tens of thousands of children and young people in Britain alone, with countless others overseas. The exact number is unknown because CP regards training programs, exact content and the names of attendees as secret 'commercial' information. The lack of clear information on CP's penetration of schools, colleges and academies should be of immediate concern to parents and those involved in child safeguarding. If CP is such a trustworthy charity, why is it so secretive about its real agenda around children?"

"Certain segments of the population must be programmed to be robotic drones, incapable or unwilling to think on their own. In this scenario, the 'individual' is the enemy of the state. Individual thinking and choice are not conducive to 'peace and progress' and not permitted. Only by being part of the 'The Team', can the individual (follower) accomplish objectives or 'outcomes'. Of course, these 'objectives and outcomes' are directed by the bureaucracy. This phase of population training is currently being accomplished by the public [state] school system with such programs as 'outcomes based education' and the introduction of New Ageism into the classroom. One has to remember that Adolf Hitler pioneered a similar tactic with his Hitlerjugend and [a] state-sponsored school system. To quote the Fuhrer, 'When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side", I calmly say, "your child belongs to me already. Who are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing but this new community".'."


The Frankfurt School

"The Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief - or even the hope of belief - that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke socialist revolution.

Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the 'oppressive' order. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus - 'continuing the work of Western Marxists by other means' as one of their members noted.

To further the advance of their 'quiet' cultural revolution ... the [Frankfurt] School recommended (among other things):

(1) the creation of racism offences,
(2) continual change to create confusion,
(3) the teaching of sex and homosexuality to children,
(4) the undermining of schools' and teachers' authority,
(5) huge immigration to destroy identity,
(6) the promotion of excessive drinking,
(7) emptying of churches,
(8) an unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime,
(9) dependency on the state or state benefits,
(10) control and dumbing down of media,
(11) encouraging the breakdown of the family.

One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud's idea of 'pansexualism' - the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would:

(a) attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children,
(b) abolish differences in the education of boys and girls,
(c) abolish all forms of male dominance - hence the presence of women in the armed forces,
(d) declare women to be an 'oppressed class' and men as 'oppressors'."




"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil;
that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!"
(Isaiah 5:20-21)
