Yesterday Myosotis Neustrie informed us that the Annual General Meeting of Neustrie Province was to be held this morning at 10.30 a.m. This was a scoop because none of the province’s WMs had received the summons. Myosotis Neustrie published it for them. link
Neustrie is one of the most anti-Stifani Provinces of all the GLNF with virtually every Lodge solidly behind their former PGM and in direct conflict with the most recent Stifani nomination. So it was to be expected that with no official notification and communication depending upon the fraternal “grapevine”, there would be few present in the Temple at Cléon this morning.
Roughly 30, certainly not enough to fill the room to overflowing. And among the 30, the vast majority were from the blue apron brigade. The grass roots level Brethren were conspicuous by their absence. Ephesse’s official emissary, the DGM, Etienne L…….e, was preaching to the converted. There is virtually no risk that his message will filter through to the Lodges.
In Ancient Greece, when the news was bad, they killed the messenger. What is the DGM’s life expectancy ?
