Ownership of the Bank of England

A while back I wrote a post, in response to a readers question - Who Owns the Bank of England?
I have been surprised:
  1. How many people search that question on Google
  2. How many people don't believe the explanation. For some reason many people think it is owned by the Rothschilds.
I wrote to the Bank of England asking for clarification. This is how they replied:
The Bank of England is the central bank of the United Kingdom and was established as a corporate body by Royal Charter under the Bank of England Act 1694. The Bank was nationalised on 1 March 1946, and gained operational independence to set interest rates in 1997 (the Bank of England Act 1998 Part II sets out the responsibilities and objectives of the Bank in relation to monetary policy).

The Bank is a public sector institution, wholly-owned by the government, but accountable to Parliament. The entire capital of the Bank is, in fact, held by the Treasury solicitor on behalf of HM Treasury. Each year, the Bank is required to submit its Report and Accounts to Parliament, via the Chancellor of the Exchequer. For more information you may be interested to see the Bank's latest Report and Accounts, which can be found on our website at:

Bank of England Annual Reports

As to the supposed 'Rothschild' connection, I don't know why people should think that the family own us. But a number of the Rothschilds have served on the Bank's Court of Directors over the years.
Interestingly, there is a similar conspiracy theory about Who owns the Federal Reserve? - Again many people believe it is owned by private bankers such as the Rothschilds and it is intent on fraudulently extorting billions of pounds from honest hard working Americans.

The Fed is a private bank, this is not a conspiracy theory. There's a congressional report from 1976 detailing not just Fed/corporate ties, but links between the Roshchild's and London banking houses and the Fed. The Fed was established by J P Morgan and Kuhn, Loeb and Co on behalf of the Rothschild's and the B of E in 1913.

Wow, you mean they didn't write back and tell you the full unabridged history? I'm amazed.
The (third incarnation of the) Federal reserve is better documented and more recent. I would be grateful if you could verify or refute any or all of the contents of G Edward Griffin's The Creature from Jekyll Island.

"conspiracy theory regarding the Fed"? What? Do you think we'll all scurry for cover at the mere mention of that Orwellian phrase "conspiracy theory"

Don't make me laugh! You're too late. Most people who have more than one brain cell now know the the truth about Fed ownership. I would also like to personally add that I believe that the proceeds from this money fraud thing finances most of the international "initiatives" that are dragging us towards a world tyranny.

IMO create-money-outta-thin-air-and-scab-interest is the LIFE BLOOD of the NWO!

Once this money fraud has been dealt with effectively I would be very interested to see how many 'isms stall and fizzle out - and I'm sure I would be pleasantly surprised to see how many of the 'ists, who leach off the 'isms, would finally be silenced - once and for all.

Happier days ahead - please God.

Go well people!

You then need to ask who is the Treasury solicitor, their site is Crown Copyright... Could dig further but for me that's damning enough.

This is a nonsense disinformation article, a cheap trick. They placed the assets in trusts, where the trustees (shareholders of the assets in the trust)are the same old rothschilds as ever. Do not be decieved, the put up crap sites to missinform the people. Just ask for a complete report on the ASSETS and who are Trustees in the particular funds and trusts.

on the 6th April 1977 the Bank of England formed the BANK OF ENGLAND NOMINEES LIMITED, (BOEN), a wholly owned subsidiary private limited company, no: 130747

“BOEN is a wholly owned subsidiary of BOE, which was granted an exemption by the Minister of State for Trade from the disclosure requirements under Section 27(9) of the Companies Act 1976 ,

Yes, it's like some awful disease....."the BofE is privately owned!" they say, "by the Rothschilds!!"

It doesn't matter if you tell them different. It's a disease?
