The annual Bilderberg meeting was held at Sitges, Spain from June 3-6 2010, with €10m spent on policing and securing the event (which is nothing compared with what Canada is about to spend on policing the G8/G20 circus later this month- a very uncool $1bn – You read that correctly – but at least the press are invited to that one)…
The press are represented inside Bilderberg (for example, the CEO of the Washington Post and the editor-in-chief of the Economist) but they’re not talking. What happens in Bilderberg stays in Bilderberg. Except for policy. That gets everywhere.
The former NATO secretary general, Willy Claes said on Belgian radio that at Bilderberg each participant is given a report and they are “considered to use this report in setting their policies in the environments in which they affect”. This remark is revealing of the Bilderberg dynamic: the flowing of policy out from Bilderberg and into the world, from power towards political implementation. From the steering committee to the guest members.
But never mind what the agenda of Bilderberg might be (and when one says “Bilderberg”, one is really talking about its steering committee of 33 people). Never mind where you stand on the project for a united Europe. Or the usefulness of a global currency. Never mind what they’re talking about. Never mind when the attack on Iran is scheduled. Simply understand that a very important, seriously managed secretive top-level conference has just taken place….
