According to veteran Bilderberg sleuth Jim Tucker, the secretive group could be preparing to host its annual confab within 40 miles of London, contradicting previous reports that the conference was set to return to Chantilly, Virginia.
“A new possibility has evolved in the annual hunt for Bilderberg’s spring meeting: somewhere within 40 miles of London, England June 6-9,” reports Tucker.
The location of the annual Bilderberg conference, a get-together involving around 120 of the most influential people on the planet, is always a guessing game for activists and journalists, who usually only pin down the precise spot just a few weeks beforehand.
Bilderberg occasionally likes to throw out a “red herring” months in advance, a bait and switch venue to trick would-be protesters into abandoning their plans. It now appears that speculation the conference would take place in the United States for an unprecedented two years running was inaccurate.
“On March 6, in the presence of a longtime source, Henry Kissinger was overheard joking about keeping people guessing on the location of this year’s Bilderberg meeting. At the time, the former secretary of state was in a hospital in New York, recovering after suffering a fall,” writes Tucker.
Although Tucker still thinks the conference may take place at the Westfields Marriott from June 21 onwards, rooms for that weekend are still available to book via the hotel’s website.
If the confab were to take place in the United Kingdom, it would draw a significant amount of protesters as well as increased mainstream media coverage in comparison to the usually compliant US corporate media.
The last time Bilderberg held their get-together in the UK was in 1998 at the Turnberry Hotel and golf course in southwestern Scotland. The last time they were in England was way back in 1977 when the conference took place at the Paramount Imperial Hotel in Torquay on the south coast.
Despite once meriting just a handful of press reports, coverage of the Bilderberg confab by both mainstream and alternative media has rapidly expanded in recent years, leading Bilderberg luminaries to express their anger over the “constant exposure” fueled by an increasing number of protesters who descend on the conference venue.
Although many quarters of the corporate press still like to pretend that 120 of the most powerful individuals from the world of banking, academia, media, politics and business all fly to the same location for three days every year merely to make small talk and play golf, there are innumerable examples of Bilderberg meetings having a direct influence on global affairs.
In 2010, former NATO Secretary-General and Bilderberg member Willy Claes admitted that Bilderberg attendees are mandated to implement decisions that are formulated during the annual conference of power brokers.
In 2009, Bilderberg chairman Étienne Davignon even bragged about how the Euro single currency was a brainchild of the Bilderberg Group.
Back in February, Italian lawyer Alfonso Luigi Marra requested that the Public Prosecutor of Rome investigate Bilderberg for criminal activity, questioning whether the elitist organization’s 2011 meeting in Switzerland led to the selection of Mario Monti as Prime Minister of Italy.
