Yesterday, the 12-foot-tall lizards that secretly rule the world were playing golf. Today, they decide exactly how to destroy democracy.

“The Death Star is orbiting at maximum velocity here,” yells American radio host and conspiracy theorist par excellence Alex Jones into his microphone. “And we’re here proving that the Death Star exists!”

The Bilderberg Group, a secrecy-shrouded 40-year-old annual meeting of political, financial and business leaders, has become a circus.

This year it is being held at The Grove, an exclusive resort set among fields and curtained by trees in Hertfordshire, down the road from where Harry Potter was filmed.

Four years ago Bilderberg was barely on the radar. But thanks to exposes from journalists including topical comedy writer Charlie Skelton it now attracts wide attention, especially from anti-globalism and anti-capitalism protesters.

And of course Jones, who describes himself as “the T-Rex of political talk”. He flew over from the States and managed to book a room in the same resort.

But he was spotted and ejected by management, and is furious. “It’s very humiliating to have booked something and be told you can’t be there while slimy lobbyists meet to engage in crime,” he ranted, in between accusing the Bilderberg members of everything from funding al-Qaeda to using humanity as guinea pigs to experiment with immortality drugs.

Police are clearly worried. On Tuesday The Grove basked in sunshine, as golf buggies whirred over rolling hills, past picturesque ponds and back to the immaculately classy resort buildings.

But outside, tied to lampposts, were worried warnings to local residents about the event which runs for found days from June 6.

Roads around The Grove were to be blocked to all pedestrians “because of the likelihood of danger to the public … from public order issues and/or terrorism”, said one sign from the county council.

Part of the security is due to the calibre of attendees.

The group have published a list of the more than 120 people at the meeting, chaired by Henrie de Castries, chairman and CEO of the AXA group.

Business leaders on the list include Marcus Agius, who recently left the helm of Barclays bank after the Libor scandal, Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com, Eric Schmidt, head of Google, Michael Evans the chair of Goldman Sachs, the head of HSBC, the CFO and chairman of Shell, a chief analyst from Stratfor, Klaus Kelinfeld, chair and CEO of Alcoa, the CEO of Prudential and the president and CEO of Siemens. And many more.

Political figures include Henry Kissinger, Britain’s shadow Chancellor and Chancellor Ed Balls and George Osborne, Jose Barroso, president of the European Commission, and Mario Monti, former Italian prime minister.

Christine Lagarde, head of the IMF is there, as well as scandal-clouded former general David Petraeus.

Skelton argues that the presence of politicians and public servants makes the group’s secrecy more egregious.

  2. It’s funny, the article is obviously a sneering hit piece typical of Fairfax media. But it seems even this lot are being forced to recognise what’s actually going on. It only reinforces the fact that the MSM is becoming more of an irrelevant joke every day.
