'A Tory university society has joined forces with a masonic lodge in a bid to recruit students to freemasonry on campuses across the UK, it has been reported. The partnership has been labeled “deeply worrying.”
According to left-wing news site Evolve Politics, the University of Nottingham Conservative Association (NUCA) has entered into a “sponsorship agreement” with Daybrook Lodge as part of a wider scheme by the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE) to recruit university students.
In a Facebook post to a private member group, NUCA said: “As some of you may have seen we have recently acquired a sponsorship agreement with Daybrook lodge.
“This is to help spread the word about the Universities Scheme run by UGLE. This is a scheme to introduce anyone, male or female, who attends the University of Nottingham or Nottingham Trent University to Freemasonry.”
Nottingham Trent Conservatives (NTC) contacted RT to say it has had no involvement with the NUCA this academic year and has not received or solicited any form of sponsorship from freemasons.
"If we received invitations to join the freemasons we would not publish them in any medium. We do not encourage our members to take any interest in the freemasons," it said.
NUCA’s invitation to “anyone” neglects to mention the fact that Daybrook in Nottingham, like most masonic lodges, is a male-only organization.'
