Common Purpose UK is a not-for-profit organization that develops leaders who can cross boundaries to lead ‘outside authority’.
Shortly after a Blair election, the embryo of Common Purpose UK emerged, unseen via David Blunket, then leader of Sheffield City Council, from a Social Services Office.
As a lecturer, I had read his proposals for the Charity Bill, little knowing the reasons, nor impact of charitable partnerships on the City, nor the Common Purpose role, a phenomenon still hidden today .
Charities are a useful, worth billions tool.
Our nation trusts them, as thought independent, not for profit, and support human misery, an ever increasing need.
And unregulated, worth over 180 billion, intrinsic part of Society,- gold dust to an exploiter of public funds, the then Labour government.
As Charity has a huge potential for profit and Social control
As Cameron knew, from his ‘Big Society’ agenda.
Better still imagine a local cabal connected by website that is in all aspects of community- GPs, nurses, care workers, teachers, directors of charities- including University /schools,lawyers and courts.
All exchanging information in secret.- this is Common Purpose – its power and web.
Here is what I wrote about Charity in 2009.
I was reminded of all this, at a Medico Legal Dinner only last year, as an ex LA employee, who had, as he boasted worked with Rotherham abuse victims, in his after Dinner Speech , as the new Director of St Wilfred’s Centre, a charity for the homeless, replacing decades of catholic priests.
Adept and articulate, his father a miner.
As volunteers officiated and ingratiated themselves everywhere with raffle tickets, desperate for a job.
St Wilfrids had such an army of free labour, paid no tax, and was a goldmine of alcoholics and the mental disordered that homelesssness breeds, together with the donations their plight attracts.
With the added potential harvesting of these seen as ‘commodities’, into Sheffield Health and Social Care, a private NHS Trust, no doubt awarding more funding, but made secret from FOIA notices by ‘commercial awareness’
when homelessness is at an all time high.
A comment on fb AMHP shows mental disorder LABEL, removal of autonomy PROMOTION.
‘Do people find it difficult to get MH services (mainly point of access) for people with dual diagnosis(substance misuse). I am sick of being told ‘we are not commissioned to work with such people, or that we can’t help them at this stage, they are self medicating’. I understand it’s complex, but I feel like I’m just letting people down.
Where do we stand with this, the person rights and the Trusts responsibility?,
Society’s abandoned and self medicating on alcohol are ST WILFRIDS gold mine to feed into Sheffield Health and Social Care – without their consent or awareness of what is happening to them on accepting a bed and charity.
We can only guess, ( who cold or dare expose ?), at the Common Purpose UK control, that allowed 15,000 children to be raped over 15 years in Rotherham alone, we have no figures for Sheffield or elsewhere in the UK.
The destruction of Sheffield City can be viewed on visiting,
It is now a bonanza for student, or any exploitation by builders, landlord, and entertainment greed.
Most historical buildings have been demolished, or converted to rental lets, for commercial greed.
Even its trees have been removed .
‘Community’- controlled by Common Purpose groups with street parties everywhere.
Recycling a religion, earning 700 million annually. The waste dumped on China.
Parking makes millions, as paradise is paved and turned into a parking lot, and inhabitants, their cars and livelihood are thrown out of the city centre.
Its profit potential now eyed up by China.
This is modern Socialism- globerlisation , Sheffield, a labour controlled City for decades.
A Scavenged city, scavenging paid for by its inhabitants – the ultimate exploitation.
In 2019 in Sheffield, after 900 trees and more were felled by Amey Ltd, who had LA 15 year contracts for maintenance of its permanent potholed roads.
Residents set up a campaign group ‘Its our City’
They signed a petition with 26,419 names, using the 2011 Localism Act, to force a referendum to change the committee style of local government, which did not represent the electorate.
Elsewhere in UK this change has, as far as we are informed, been made by ‘agreement’ but again dependent on threat, information and prior exploitation.
LAs do not appear to represent their public funders, and are controlled for profit, not service to the community that funds them.
We, in Sheffield are not allowed to even know how our money is spent, let alone control it.
Nor, how we are plundered for profit.
I have spent the last ten years at various Sheffield Social City functions of the ‘elite’, daring to mention Common Purpose UK, but to no avail, such is its power, even its existence, dare not be acknowledged..
Some shrieked, ‘How can I join It ?’ evidencing the centralist mentality that has reeked our downfall.
Yet, Common Purpose UK is in plain sight , Sheffield Hallam University recruits for members, with 2 CP graduate directors.
We need to know who controls our cities, and how our money is spent.
The erosion of democracy, by the secret destruction of our separation of powers, must, at least be seen
Already too many have been allowed to control, for their own vested interests.
Ignorance, and ‘Abeit macht Frei’ propaganda has allowed this to happen.
Below is a post of a person who tried with FOI notices to gain information on CP in Sheffield.
It is for information only, I as mere poster to accept no responsibility for its content
PART OF A LETTER DESCRIBING COMMON PURPOSE in SHEFFIELD CITY COUNCIL
“It is necessary here to describe some aspects of the practices of Common Purpose, and how association with Common Purpose is integral to this council.
Common Purpose is a networking organisation.
There is no networking carried out by council officers, or council associated organisations, that could not be carried out without Common Purpose.,
the Audit Commission were told that Common Purpose was good for promoting the city, yet there is no promotion that could not be done without Common Purpose.
The question must therefore be, why have Common Purpose at all?
Common Purpose’s own literature boasts that ”Common Purpose can control a major city if it has the right people in place.”
Common Purpose graduates are chosen among leaders and potential leaders for their benefit to Common Purpose, and trained at ratepayers’ expense, for which the council has conceded is of no demonstrable financial benefit to the ratepayer.
According to this council’s protocols, Common Purpose is a secret society, and all those associated with Common Purpose have a statutory duty to declare.
This council unlawfully refuses point blank to release a list of Common Purpose graduates, officers, members, or associates. Those in receipt of training, according to Common Purpose, agree that their names, company position and employer details may be published.
Yet this council still refuses to comply with the law.
Common Purpose holds it meetings, in ratepayer time, in ratepayer funded premises such as the Town Hall, under ‘Chatham House’ rules,
i.e. secrecy. These meetings include; but are not limited; to including Common Purpose graduates from Yorkshire Forward, Voluntary Action Sheffield, OFFER, Primary Care Trusts, Police, Government Office of Yorkshire and the Humber, etc.
There is no meeting that could not be held by these people and organisations that could not be held in an open and transparent manner.
To rub salt in this festering wound, Common Purpose, having trained its graduates at ratepayers’ expense, Common Purpose then enjoys the unwitting ratepayers’ hospitality at its meetings.
So we are back to the question, why Common Purpose?
The answer is mind-numbingly simple – power!
Common Purpose graduates are taught to lead beyond their authority.
Common Purpose meetings facilitate exercising influence, interest and control upon the graduates’ employers, whilst unlawfully bypassing statutory democratic processes, avoiding transparency and accountability, and imposing the pre-set agenda of top-down controlled social engineering.
To add insult to ratepayers’ injury, these meetings coach on how to avoid compliance with the Freedom of Information Act, promote their own ‘services’, and unlawfully elicit financially binding arrangements upon the host authority whilst avoiding scrutiny.
Meanwhile, the vast majority of elected members are kept blissfully unaware
To quite a large extent, Common Purpose is running this council as a government agent.
I will now turn to your letter of 17 March. This is what you wrote:
“C: Senior Council Officers Lying to me to Avoid FOIA Compliance
No recorded information exists that you made a previous request in respect of Common Purpose; the misunderstanding for which I apologise, arose because of confusion with the numerous other requests that you have made for information featured in the Annual Accounts.
The Council annually funds one corporate place on a Common Purpose training scheme, and the cost of the most recent course for the most recent complete financial year was £3,084, including VAT.”
There was no confusion.
A legitimate request for information was unlawfully refused on the false grounds that the same requests had been made to other council officers.
This type of behaviour has become Common.
My letters, as is so often the case were simply ignored.
As for the FoIA request for the names and details, this was also ignored, thus again showing that this council has nothing but contempt for the law. The audit commission has criticised for refusing to respond.
Now let us look at what you, as signatory, wrote about Common Purpose Training for last full accounting year: Cost: £3084 Number: ONE
After the intervention of the Audit Commission, I was given the following figures for council expenditure on Common Purpose training, in a letter dated 16 September 2008:
2007 / 08 £8250 Officers attending: 3
2008 / 09 £3125 Officers attending: 3
Note also that the council has refused to identify who receives Common Purpose training at ratepayers’ expense. What is there to be so ashamed of?
Why the secrecy?”
There are no lists of Common Purpose Graduates, as their members are called.
Nor information on the personal websites they share, nor influence they yield.
