Last Thursday and Friday the regular meeting of the Grand Masters of European Grand Lodges was held in Brussels. Despite no longer being the Grand Master of the GLNF François Stifani travelled north to the Belgian capital.
As is his habit he arrived late Thursday evening, after the dinner had commenced. No-one rose to greet him and he had to take the only place left, with the Slavs (Ukrainians, Slovenians, etc). Communication wasn’t at its best !
The next day each Grand Master made a declaration, a sort of “State of the Union”. François Stifani said he had prepared nothing but was prepared to answer questions. Instead of questions he was hooted and derided, not loudly, but definitely mocked by the other Grand Masters. We have been told he left, his tail between his legs !
