Common Purpose Bullying and Threats

Overview
CP claims to have originated in USA and was brought to UK by Julia Middleton, but research is now indicating a
birth in Oxford University. CP now operates in many European countries but appears very active in UK. It purports to
run 'leadership programmes' for all members of society, from school children to those at local community, regional, or
UK national level. Themes purport to help decision making, diversity, the networking of leaders, more effective
solution to common problems, drive changes to society over next 20 years, understanding UK and EU government,
understanding European and Global strategies etc. Courses and the CP programme operate under the Chatham House
Rule of the Council on Foreign Relations, which encourages participants to use information revealed by others who
remain unidentified. CP 'graduates' do not declare their status and remain hidden from public view. Networking of CP
'graduates' for personal / organisational benefit is encouraged. Courses are charged at a minimum of £3,800 plus VAT.
Courses begin with 2 day residential course with group activities and selected 'guest speakers'. Further training days
ensue. People must be invited to join CP by an 'advisory board'. The website www.commonpurpose.org.uk appears
innocuous but has recently been considerably changed in style and format.

Common Purpose (CP)- A Hidden Menace in our Society and schools
By Brain Gerish
Common Purpose - A brief outline
Introduction
The following short brief is compiled from personal testimonies and experiences, and professional observation of Commonpurpose (CP), examination of written material, experience of participants of the CP programme(s), informalinterviews with CP staff, together with extensive research over a period of 3 years. This work has produced threats to persons and their business interests, as well as bringing others within the public and private sector to the fore, whohave been frightened / disturbed in some way by knowledge of, contact or participation with CP.

True Aims and Objectives
To recruit key decision makers and existing leaders within UK society and by 'cult programming' to instil in them astrong pro-European socialist mental agenda, including the replacement of existing democracy with a non partyalternative, based on chosen CP 'Leaders' and CP partnership working under centralised control. Selected CP 'graduateleaders' will work to promote this new agenda below the surface of the existing democratic system, and will strive torecruit further members within an expanding cell network. Non CP promoted objectives in the host organisation andnation to be blocked, slowed, destroyed or suffer obfuscation.
Observed characteristics of CP to June 200
· CP adopts a quasi-secret approach which mimics Freemasonary. CP graduates do not freely declare themselves assuch in either the public or private sector.· Recruits by preference professional men and women in key positions / jobs of authority / funds.· Recruits Youth from 13 years in schools.· Residential training (2 days) takes place in a 'controlled' environment hotel or similar location with accommodation.· Participants are encouraged to reveal significant personal information as to their personal strengths, weaknesses,successes, failures and goals in writing to CP staff and verbally to others in the training group.· People who complete the course appear to believe in a 'new common purpose and approach' to society'. Someenthuse how they have discovered something wonderful or life changing.· Key / selected graduates are used to further recruitment within their organisations (similar to pyramid selling).· Public sector expenditure on CP is not openly and freely declared.· Unusual language used in CP documentation and observed behind public website e.g. how to recognise youcontroller, how to control your host city, plus texts of a highly socialist (even national socialist) nature, changingvalues, and thought processes.· Unusual language used by CP graduates e.g. "I am ready to take my place in society", "you are only little men"(used to those who do not agree with CP visions for society). Also triggering phrases e.g. lets 'just do it'.· CP graduates who challenge the course / later challenge CP bosses and colleagues / do not get on with CP, appear to be bullied within their organisations and /or lose their jobs. Some evidence of sexual bullying of women.· Some evidence of fear of CP by staff and 'graduates'. Some women in particular appear frightened, depressed, paranoid following contact with CP. Similarly school girls. Some tenuous evidence of occult influences / practices inschoolchildren.· Mental decline of CP individuals noted by spouses - individual becomes withdrawn, unable to cope with work, onlymixes with CP people, no laughter or enthusiasm. Perhaps robotic in manner.· CP staff report strict vertical reporting and control within the organisation. Heavy pressure to perform. Co-operationsideways to other CP groups / areas not tolerated. All staff training done in London HQ.· CP 'graduates' seem to produce documentation in their work towards a future vision or goal. Characteristics are: proliferation of a future Vision (with key dates 2010,2012,2020), obsession with partnerships and partnerships of  partnerships, use of key words e.g. leaders, creative, creative experimental, well being, mental health, common purpose, matrix, vision, creating paths, dialectic, collective, co-operative, change, revolution, new world, engagingwith diversity, one world, magical, mystical for example.· Individuals appear nervous if challenged as to involvement with CP. Some are prepared to lie as to their involvement, including to longstanding personal friends.· Most of the general public of professional or lay person status are unaware of the existence or role of CP, particularlywithin the public sector.· Many CP 'graduates' control or are influential regarding finances, money or grants.· CP control structure appears linked to ODPM via a web of 'socialist' organisations and foundations.· ODPM has so far refused to acknowledge their connections with CP, although can be proven.· Public bodies are reluctant to reveal the identity of CP 'graduates' or the total amount of public funds spent on
 
courses.· Meetings rigidly controlled by CP Chairmen. Those expressing dissenting views are pressurised, bullied or intimidated at the meeting.· CP circumstantial complicity with fraud and corruption in public and private sector.· Those questioning role of CP are ignored, dismissed, 'palmed off', discredited and /or threatened.
Description of those targeted
People come from all sectors i.e. public and private - health, police, education, city councils, county councils, districtetc, quangos GOSW, RDA, Business Links etc, and the proliferation of quasi quango charities. There is a bias to theupper echelons and clearly this is the targeting and selection of the 'future leaders'. CP is targeting those withknowledge, power and influence plus control of money.In general ordinary people from the ordinary general public and deprived neighbourhoods seem to be very much in theminority. Apart from anything else how can they afford £3,950 plus VAT? Those 'professionals' working in all themini quangos purporting to be helping communities seem to be particularly targeted. We are told that CP recruits fromethnic minorities but have no evidence as yet. An informed individual reported that some coloured people who doCommonpurpose seem to end up less dynamic than when they start.
CP is clearly making a major effort to target schools,school heads and the teenage children.
We are also aware that some 'strange creative' courses for primary school children are being held in cities such asPlymouth. We have not yet got a CP connection but strongly suspect it.During investigations into Common Purpose the following documents were seen behind the original website but havenow been made inaccessible:a. Policy documents 'Controlling Your Host City'. The document deals with social engineering and community controlthrough CP links in the Executive structure of a city. b. Education policy documents on selecting Future Leaders from children at 12 -14 years via CP 'graduates' placed inresponsible positions such as Head Teachers and the application of further grooming.c. Access to CP lists of graduates / members is now denied to public access.d. Vast number of courses & meetings / schedules and attendees removed from the site.e. Links to other hidden sites removed.f. CP site itself changed from 'To create the Future Leaders' to a more sanitised version.
Common Purpose plans to control Future Society
The CP site and its associated site spoke of the future leaders controlling society - not elected democratically - butcreated by their (CP) design.Ordinary people to be suggestively coerced / engineered into 'correct society' - created leaders to effect this changeand control by working together across lines / parties / bodies (quangos) with other CP members associates.All bodies of responsibility and influence 'should' be involved with CP who will create / appoint their leadership.CP member loyalties directed to CP solely. CP principles precedent to other (organisational / personal) interests in the(new) interest of creating the better CP society.
Failure to declare graduate status or amounts of public money spent
The Freedom of Information Act is usually needed to force the public sector to decaler expenditure on CommonPurpose. Even then some organisations lie, distort the figures, or fail to answer. Why? - if this is such an innocent andwonderful educational charity. Despite being in business in the city for 10 years I was not aware of CP until 2 yearsago. Then I find it everywhere but no open declaration or discussion of its existence. When I asked people verbally for information on expenditure my questions were brushed off. We have started to write and ask, and have now got somefinancial information. The figures (which are incomplete) clearly show massive expenditure by the public sector. Some£100,000 by Plymouth City Council, £60,000 Government Office of the South West, £80,000 Office of the Deputy prime Minister, £57,000 Devon and Cornwall Constabulary, £30,000 South West of England Regional DevelopmentAgency, £36,000 Ministry of Defence Logistics. These figures are the tip of the iceberg locally and certainlynationally. Simply multiply 18,500 odd Common Purpose graduates by £4,500 per course from the public sector. Totalcirca £83m. Huge amounts are being spent whilst schools, hospitals and social care facilities close.
Bullying and illness amongst those connected with Common Purpose
Many people have given personal information on Common Purpose. One lady describes her experiences of CP, and anumber of individuals connected with CP in a public authority, where when she challenged the CP 'authority' she
