George Osborne and Britain’s Bilderbergers, Why The Media Silence?

Around 130 of the world’s most powerful people have been meeting over the past few days at a picturesque resort in St. Mortiz, Switzerland. It’s called the Bilderberg Club, a Euro-American conference that hosts kingpins from Business, Banking, Politics and sometimes even royalty. It was founded in the 50s by Nazi-sympathizing Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands and EU obsessive Józef Retinger, and has gone on to be an important meeting of the Euro-American elite, as they quest to solve the world’s problems while maintaining their hegemony.

Unbeknown to most of the British people, Britain is well represented at the conference, this year welcoming Chancellor George Osbourne, life peer Peter Mandelson, John Kerr of the House of Lords, and MP Rory Stewart, among several banking and business moguls.

Bilderberg now has it’s own official website @, there is a well sourced Wikipedia article, and several investigative books and films have been made over the years exploring the think tank. The local Swiss media are covering it like they would any other geo-political meeting, such as the G20. But other than Charlie Skelton’s blog on the back pages of The Guardian website, the UK press are deadly silent.

In fact the BBC went further than silence. In two distasteful reports they effectively implied that the meeting is irrelevant and that anyone with a passing interest in what these leaders are discussing might be mentally ill, an anti-Semite or a fringe conspiracy theorist that thinks the world is ruled by lizards.

The first BBC report, immaturely entitled: Bilderberg mystery: Why do people believe in cabals? prefers to ask the question why do people believe in the Bilderberg conspiracy, instead of actually sending BBC reporters to the meeting to actually cover what’s going on. (It’s a bizarre world when the once suppressive Russia covers the event and Britain is the one brushing it aside).

The BBC report features Canadian journalist and self-professed 9/11 conspiracy debunker Jonathan Kay playing armchair psychologist. Instead of an in-depth talk on what Bilderberg actually is, Kay is given a platform to shill his book. He reminds us that “only a small minority” of what he calls conspiracy theorists have “mental health difficulties”, which still implies some people who have questions about their heads of state meeting with the business and finance chiefs, and other world leaders behind closed doors, are mentally unstable. Even when in some countries this very act is illegal if policy is then altered (US Logan Act).

Later Kay ironically observes that there is a distrust of the media, which gives rise to conspiracy theories. All while furious members of the public gather on social media declaring their distrust (and disgust) the BBC’s reporting on the subject. Perhaps people no longer support the mainstream media because it conducts insulting interviews like Kay’s, and fails to cover important geopolitical events.

The following morning BBC Radio had on another self professed conspiracy debunker in one David Aaronovitch, who of course is also peddling a book about conspiracy theorists.

Aaronovitch made the claim that Bilderberg is just a “Supper Club” and then went on to claim those interested in Bilderberg are anti-Semitic.

Since they brought up mental stability, maybe somebody should sit down with Aaronovitch and asses his own mental health. He clearly has some kind of Jewish inferiority complex that causes him to mention anti-Semitism at least once in every interview.

Since the BBC refuse to honor the pledge of their TV License (to educate and inform), perhaps we can do some digging ourselves.

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osbourne, the man who controls this country’s economic and financial matters is off talking behind closed doors with the world’s elite. Considering the banker bailout and the Conservative policy of austerity cuts, the public should probably know what he’s up to.

We only have such a huge national debt because the government decides to borrow money in to existence that we have to then pay back, because they can’t stick within the budget raised through taxation.

We only have such a high deficit over the past few years because when the economy burst thanks to the financial gamblers in the City, the government pledged our future on bailing them out.

So again, when George Osborne is going to meet some of those same financial gamblers, perhaps he’s the one getting the orders not the other way around.

Marcus Agius, the Chairman of Barclays bank just happens to be in attendance, as does HSBC’s Douglas Flint. They are joined by Richard Lambert an executive of financial services juggernaut Ernst & young.

America’s financial sector are also in attendance, including former governor of the Federal Reserve Kevin Warsh, Roger Altman of investment firm Evercore Partners and Peter R. Orszag, Vice Chairman of Citigroup, among a horde of others. [1]

Other UK attendees include:

Kerr, John, Member, House of Lords; Deputy Chairman, Royal Dutch Shell
Mandelson, Peter, Member, House of Lords; Chairman, Global Counsel
Micklethwait, John, Editor-in-Chief, The Economist
Stewart, Rory, Member of Parliament
Taylor, J. Martin, Chairman, Syngenta International AG

Microsoft’s Bill Gates is there, Google is represented, and long time “philanthropists” David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger have made the trip once again.

Although blowhards like Aaronovitch smugly dismiss Bilderberg (not that he’s ever been there to have a look), some politicians are demanding answers for their constituents.

While British mainline press are sucking their thumbs, Swiss People’s Party representative Dominique Baettig is looking to arrest Henry Kissinger for his past war crimes. Other Swiss MPs will be marching right up to the hotel with protesters later today.

You’d think these would be big stories, it’s like there are two parallel universes at play.

Italian Member of European Parliament Mario Borghezio was given a bloody nose yesterday when he tried to enter the hotel and get answers. In a statement to Swiss news, police stated: “We don’t comment on the work of private security firms.” [2] So does that put them above the law?

Borghezio has been fighting for answers since last year when he invited investigative journalist Daniel Estulin to give a talk in the EU Parliament. Again it was ignored by the the press, but spread widely through the alternative media:

Just a supper club?

The EU itself seems to have been one of the many projects nurtured by the Bilderbergers.

The 1955 Bilderberg summary report, which was recently leaked online notes the “Pressing need to bring the German people, together with the other peoples of Europe, into a common market.” And “To arrive in the shortest possible time at the highest degree of integration, beginning with a common European market.”

Two years later, the European Economic Community (EEC) was born.

Belgian viscount and Bilderberg-chairman Étienne Davignon confirmed in an interview with the EU Observer that it was Bilderberg that also helped to create the EURO currency.

So what else do they have planned? Libya looks to be on the agenda, as Anders Rasmussen, Secretary General of NATO is known to be inside. Robert Gates, the Serving US Secretary of Defense has also made the trip. [3]

For the first time Chinese delegates are in attendance, suggesting the Euro-American’s are open to broadening their agenda.

Whatever comes of this year’s meeting, it will prove to be the most widely publicized of its 50+ years of operation thanks to social and alternative media. Ultimately the BBC have proven themselves out of date and not fit for purpose.

So BBC, why do people believe in Cabals? They don’t believe, a cabal is meeting right now and you’re attempting to get us to look the other way. Why?
