It is the name given to a select group that attend an annual conference for ' a frank and open discussion '. No details ever emerge from these conferences so conspiricy theorists have a field day.
When you look at the people who have attended over the years though something is not right.
Only 120 invited guests attend each conference. The most senior Irishman is Peter Sutherland. Pat Cox, John Bruton and Conor Brady ( former editor of the Irish Times ) are alleged to have attended as did M McDowell.
Tony Blair attended the year before he became leader of Labour as did Clinton the year before he got his nomination. Bush wasn't there but most of his staff have attended. Murdoch and other media magnates have attended as have Bloomberg and Tony O'Reilly's old employers at Heinz.
There are no press releases and no facts as to their activities, which given the presence of so many media people suggests something a bit odd.
Question: Why did Blair ( Labour )appoint Chris Patten ( Conservative ) to a senior position when he lost his seat? Patten is a Bilderberger. Patten recently announced the likelihood that John Bruton ( Bilderberger ) would be appointed to a position ' to raise the profile of the Eu in Washington'. These boys look after themselves.
None of the about is outrageous but the same names keep poppoing up. Incidently John Kerry has attended!
