Icon605 Norman Montagu's quote about capital

Hello, i've a question about this supposed Norman Montagu's (governor of the Bank Of England, 1924) quote:

“When, through process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of the government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers.

“These truths are well known among our principal men, who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance.

“It is thus, by discrete action, we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”

According to others anti-hoax website, this quote is real but not from Mr Montagu and older (something like 1880). Do you now something about that? (veracity or real author?)
