The following opening paragraph claims the BOE is a nationalised Bank however the paragraph & link that I have added would suggest otherwise.

From SourceWatch, the encyclopedia of propaganda.

The Bank of England is "the central bank of the United Kingdom. Sometimes known as the 'Old Lady' of Threadneedle Street, the Bank was founded in 1694, nationalised in 1946, and gained operational independence in 1997. Standing at the centre of the UK's financial system, the Bank is committed to promoting and maintaining a stable and efficient monetary and financial framework as its contribution to a healthy economy."[1] end of extract The following are freely available on the internet and for distribution

Beastly bankers - who have created wars to line their own pockets.


"The Bank of England is in effect a sovereign world power, for this privately owned institution is not subject to reglation or control in the slightest degree by the British Parliament. A succinct outline of this situation appears in the Encyclopedia Americana under "Great Britain - banking in". This privately owned and controlled institution functions as the great balance wheel of the credit of the world, able to expand or contract credit at will; and it is subject only to the orders of the City, the City dominated by the fortune of the House of Rothschild and the policies of the House of Rothschild."

From "The Empire of the City" by E.C. Knuth

Congressman Louis Mcfadden, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, said that the Great depression of the 1920s:

"was not accidental. It was a carefully contrived occurrence...the international bankers sougth to bring about conditions of despair here, so they might emerge as rulers of us all."
