The "Ugly Secret" of World War Two (Encore)

Josslyn Victor Hay,  22nd Earl of Erroll, (1901-1941) a senior British colonial (Kenyan) official, knew the real cause of World War Two and had the stature to be heard. 

Winston Churchill ordered the Secret Service ( Special Operations Executive) to kill him.  What "ugly secret" would make the British government go to so much trouble to murder a prominent British politician?

Significantly the conspirators chose the codename "Operation Highland Clearance" for Erroll's murder. The brutal eviction of Scottish tenants from their farms in the early 1800's is a fitting symbol for the dispossession of the human race by the New World Order, which the  Second World War did so much to advance.

The popular version of the Nairobi Kenya murder was depicted in the 1987 movie "White Mischief" starring Charles Dance as Lord Erroll and Greta Scacchi as Diana Broughton. 

Erroll's body was found in the early morning Jan. 24, 1941 kneeling in the front passenger foot well of his car with a bullet wound behind the ear, murdered execution style. Erroll, 40 and a widower, was having an affair with a married woman Diana Broughton and had dropped her at her nearby home after midnight.

Suspicion was cast on Diana's much older husband Sir Henry Broughton, who was tried but acquitted. The movie pins the blame on him and the decadence of white settlers in general.

The murder would have remained unsolved but for a retired SOE insider who, informed of a terminal disease, gave the information to a colleague Tony Trafford who composed a 100-page memo. Trafford, since deceased, gave it to an author, coincidentally named Errol Trzebinski who was writing "The Life and Death of Lord Erroll: The Truth Behind the Happy Valley Murder" (2000). 

At 6 foot 2" with chiselled Nordic looks, Lord Erroll was a natural leader, heir to an ancient Scottish lineage, organized and intelligent, an excellent speaker with a photographic memory. A member of the Kenyan colonial legislature, he held the post of Military Secretary with important military and intelligence duties.

SOE "Operation Highland Clearance" involved more than 100 people. In the early stages of the world war, why was it so important for the Churchill government to silence this man?


Essentially Hitler was not interested in a world war. His design was to conquer the USSR in a loose "Nordic" alliance with England. Erroll belonged to the "Cliveden Set" a powerful section of the British elite that supported this alliance.

Churchill's backers, the privately-owned Bank of England set Hitler up as a means to menace Stalin, have a world war and destroy Germany once and for all . War enables them to concentrate power and wealth in their hands and slaughter national elites who might interfere with world government.

The bankers used the Cliveden types to fool Hitler into thinking England approved of his plans. Like  proud proteges, the Nazis entertained the English and gave them information on their military build-up. The Nazis were set up. This is the real meaning of the "Policy of Appeasement."

The Cliveden Set divided into two groups, those who were aware of the trap, and those who were not. Erroll was one of latter who sincerely believed Hitler represented a bulwark to Communism. When the war broke out, Erroll did his patriotic duty. But he knew too much. He was aware of how Hitler and Churchill belonged to the same homosexual occult secret society and he may have spoken of it within range of MI-5 assets. 


Errol's father, Victor Hay, was the British High Commissioner in the Rhineland. At age 20, Errol was the private secretary to the British Ambassador in Berlin. He spoke German and French fluently, knew the Prince of Wales, and was part of the European elite.

His diplomatic career hit the rocks in 1924 when he married a twice-divorced woman eight years his senior. He followed her to Kenya where she had a large estate won in a divorce settlement. They had a daughter.

Erroll visited England, joined Oswald Mosley's Fascist party but later quit. He was a close friend with the Duke of Hamilton who was a linch pin in the Bank of England's "Hitler Project."

In May 1941, three months after Errol's death, Rudolf Hess, the Deputy Fuhrer, flew to Scotland to present Hamilton with a generous peace proposal. Both men were homosexuals. Hess was Hitler's homosexual lover in the Landsberg Prison and helped him compose "Mein Kampf."  Hamilton may have had an affair with Albrecht Haushofer, the son of Hitler and Hess' mentor Karl Haushofer, who originated the concept of lebensraum. A. Haushofer was part of the German Resistance who hoped to shunt Hitler aside and make peace with England.

It is probable that Hitler was created by a largely homosexual occult secret society that spanned both British and Nazi elites. This was called the Thule Society in Germany and the Order of the Golden Dawn in England. Aleister Crowley's Ordo Templi Orientis was the common link.

Winston Churchill, a Druid, was part of this occult scene. (He was also a friend of Edward VIII, considered a Nazi sympathizer.) But the Nazis branch was not aware of the hidden English agenda. Erroll was silenced because he opposed Communism and the NWO. He could discredit Churchill and the British war effort.

(See Churchill's homosexual connection. )


On Sept 7, 1940, a highly placed group including Douglas Douglas-Hamilton, the Fourteenth Duke of Hamilton, met in Scotland and decided to terminate Jocelyn Hay, Lord Erroll. The matter was to be handled by SOE Cairo station.

Jock and Diana Broughton were MI-5 assets who entered Kenya in Nov. 1940 to discover Erroll's intentions and to involve him in a love triangle that would obscure the real purpose of his murder. In December, another agent-couple entered Kenya and on the night of the murder, pretended to have engine trouble. They requested a ride back to town for the female who shot Errol. There were radio-controlled teams following Erroll.

Trezebinski's retired SOE contacts try to put a slightly different spin on events suggesting Erroll was murdered because "ex-appeasers " in the establishment including "the Duke of Hamilton, senior figures in Chamberlain's last cabinet, close friends of Edward VIII and Edward himself" would be embarrassed by what Erroll knew. (p.280)

One insider told her Rudolf Hess, Lord Moyne and Erroll shared knowledge of some "ugly" secret. Jewish terrorists ostensibly murdered Lord Moyne in 1944 for this reason. Other Cliveden members who died mysterious and premature deaths were Lord Lothian (1940), Lord Rothermere (1940), Sir Harry Oakes (1943) and the former Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain who died of "cancer" in Nov. 1940 six months after leaving office. Hamilton conveniently died in action in 1944. The two SOE agents also conveniently died in action. 

According to this insider, the "ugly secret" is "not that Churchill had discovered the conspiracy [to make peace with Germany] and had been enraged but that he had been part of it." I disagree. My hunch is that Churchill, Hitler, Stalin and FDR were part of the same kabalistic secret society (the Illuminati) and Lord Erroll knew Hitler had been set up to fail.  This is why Lord Erroll had to be silenced.


The ultimate "ugly secret" is that the USSR was a creation of British Freemasonry, financed by the Bank of England. They may have lost control of Stalin and created Hitler to menace him. But Stalin would have had to do something terrible for the British to have joined Hitler. Russian Communism was one half of their NWO Hegelian dialectic. We see it today in the form of arbitrary state power, repression and indoctrination. Nazism was also a dry-run for the New World Order but it was their Plan "B"

As Erroll's fate makes clear, intelligence agencies work for the Masonic central bankers, not for the countries they pretend to serve. They are used to eliminate any genuine threat to the banker's credit monopoly and world dictatorship agenda.

The real point  is that history is a hoax, contrived by cabalist central bankers, to advance world tyranny.  They empower perverts and misfits to create war and mayhem. For example, chaos relieved Winston Churchill's chronic depression. He confessed at the onset of WWI: "Everything is tending to catastrophe and collapse. I am interested, geared up, and happy. Is it not horrible to be built like this?"

These monsters are our leaders.  Subverted by a Luciferian cult, the moral bankruptcy of Western society is masked by material prosperity but this cannot last. Thus, they are erecting a police state while the intelligentsia and masses can still be bought with their own credit.
