On a more serious note...I know a few people, or rather a few people  whom I know, are Freemasons, including my good lady's father.  So at some point I was approached to join and (relatively politely) declined, mainly because I don't join anything but also because, having gone to a couple of minor functions, my slightly informed opinion was exactly the same as my ignorant opinion had been.  Lots of wretched professional white men making bad jokes and 'assisting' each other with little 'problems' they might be having.

Now, I'm sure there's more to it than that, because that's what people always say.  And I'm sure that they do plenty of great work for charity, because that's also what people always say.  And if any factacularians are masons please understand I mean no offence.  As I said, I don't join anything so it's a long list.

My friend fought for years to become a Mason, then found nothing had changed , he was still poor . A boss I had was a Mason , a rich man , his company went bust unsurprisingly , he popped up again a couple of days later as the supervisor of a house remodelling . This idiot couldn't even use a power drill . Next time I heard of him he was manager of a shopping mall in Isle of Man . The "big boss" of all the companies who rented space .

It ain't what you now , it is who you know has never been more apt .

Absolutely.  Some of the little deals I know have gone on amongst Masons are quite sickening.  Helping each other out in little ways that ensure the continuing comfort and success of a bunch of people who really don't deserve them.

My dad was in the Masons. I don’t think he was very active. Is one of those things where once you in then you in for life. When he died they were at the front door demanding his bag. Mum knew where it was stashed and handed it over. A little brown suitcase. Mum said he hadn’t gone to a meeting for decades. But they knew where he was!  Creepy

Found a book of all their symbols once and that was interesting. But everything else is creepy to me as sally said!

Only the National Lottery raises more money in UK than Masonry for Charity

Ask NHS and Education how much they rely on mega donations from Masonry to equip themselves, particularly Cancer technology and learning technology.

It is Freemasonry's fault however that many suspicions are raised, more transparency!

Hey ho

I did know they donated to charity. My mum has just told me that because of dad being in the masons she, and my siblings and I, will get priority if we need a nursing home when we get old. Mind you my mum is 86 so not sure what she thinks old is - but obviously not yet
