British taxpayers to pay 'millions' towards secretive Bilderberg meeting security


www.telegr aph.co.uk

The clandestine meeting of royalty, prime ministers and business chiefs is taking place in Britain for the first time since 1998, sparking fears of "violence and disturbance" by protesters.

The Bilderberg organisers, who include Tory Cabinet minister Ken Clarke, do not release a guest list but a roll-call of luminaries are expected to descend on a luxury Watford hotel from June 6, forcing police to step up security.

Hertfordshire police have refused to release the cost of security for the event, which has previously drawn anti-capitalist demonstrators in other locations around the wor

Many will say that Bilderberg does not exist, or that people over exaggerate the possible sinister motives for their meetings.

Regardless of your opinions of the "Bilderbergers" tax payers are paying the cost for securing these elitists as they meet at various places around the world each year.

This year, the citizens of of England are being stuck with the bill.

Personally, I believe that the wealthy attendees of these meetings should pay for their own security. Or at the very least, if we are to pay for their security, we should at least have full access to what is being discussed in these "private" meetings that many of our elected officials and corporate heavyweights deny attending even after they have been caught red handed.

I am not even from the UK and I am pretty angry at the lack of logic behind this news, but I am used to the elite pulling stunts like this so I am not surprised one bit.

I agree. These are some of the wealthiest people in the world and should have to pay for their own security, accommodations, the whole shebang. If they want to have big, secret meetings every year- fine, but let them do it on their own dime and not at the expense of the tax payers!

We have all been duped believing there is something special about these people and we owe them homage, a life of poverty, our devotion. And we get the privilege of looking up at them and hope one day they will notice how well we take care of them. Sorry, just had to blow off some steam. Payday is Saturday.

If they must come to England perhaps the Queen should accommodate them in one of her costly palaces. Lets face it, she has just been given some extra 47 million pounds per year by her dear cousin David Cameron.

There's a limit to how much the vast population of this country that lives within tight budgets want the super rich supping off of them, even for a short time. We have our own 'vampires' without importing more for natty little private meetings.

Well, the police are there to ensure this type of event is not disrupted, as they often are by malcontents and others. As it’s in the UK, I bet that “in touch” group called Socialst Worker will be there. What’s the problem?

I think Bildenberg is full of all sorts of myths. It’s just a discussion forum for powerful industrialists and politicians. Not the NWO or reptiles.

The taxpayer always pays for security of visiting political "dignitaries" and also of local politicians. since those aer going to be there why wouldn't this be het case?

And as for living in poverty because of them - yeah - sure......I can see the abject poverty of ATS members written all over their posts on ATS..........heck - I don't even have a video game console - I'm soooooooo poor.....

Just miss a paycheck and you will find out about poverty. In the US, you have to be without income for 30 days (or maybe it is 2 weeks-who cares when you are hungry) before you can get help with food. These "dignitaries" should take responsibility for their own safety. Isn't that what I hear from the rich all the time, how I should be responsible for myself. I refuse to be brainwashed into believing these people deserve more than they already have.

You can't say for sure what happens as it's not public. Politicians that supposedly represent the people, privately duscussing world matters with powerful business people, media .s and royalty is not right, even if non of them do turn into lizards!

I see that a couple members participating in this thread have a lot of faith in their elected officials and the practices they use when it comes to spending tax payer money for luxurious secret meetings.

There is no excuse for this if there is no transparency, even then, they would lie.

Just look at the list of attendees each and every single year. You have high end politicians, corporate kingpins, royalty...the list goes on...what on earth could they be doing?

If you are okay with your hard earned dollars being used to fund these meetings in any way whatsoever then you have given up.

Not happy about this at all


Why they cannot pay for a private security firm for this is ridiculous. Yes it's being held in the UK, but that doesn't necessarily mean the UK police should be used. It should be a private firm and if there is any trouble, then involve the police.

If they can dance around bonfires bark at the moon, and worship some giant owl statue out in the middle of nowhere, all done with private security and what not, they can handle these meetings without extravagant (and that sum is extravagant) amounts of security paid for by the citizenry.

From a legal standpoint they have every right to gather and do whatever they do, much like masonry and other clubs do. From a moral perspective this reeks like a dead animal in the sun. I wish someone would spy on them and put it on youtube.

Just like alex jones did of bohemian grove. The bilderbergers are rotten!

The taxpayer pays for security of political state dignataries, when the visit is an official state visit. This is a private meeting of an international organisation who has decided to hold their latest conference in the U.K.

Why we accept elected officials to attend such meetings is mind boggling. Sure many political meetings are held behind closed doors, but this isn't a recognised political meeting.

If they want their secret society meetings, then they can damn well foot the bill for security. People's welfare payments are being cut, whilst these tycoons and politicians are having their dirty little secret weekend, with security paid by the U.K taxpayer. It's wrong, simply wrong.

I don't expect any communist or muslim dictators to attend. Certainly not gadhafi who is dead or assad who is fighting to keep his country from falling apart. I also don't expect putin to be there, or ahmadinjihad or kim jung un, etc.

Socialists, communists, muslim leaders all banned.

If I am wrong I don't mind be corrected. All this smacks of RIGGED POLITICS on a global scale. "We are capitalist pigs and will enforce state capitalism on you peons."

Screw them!

Hertfordshire police have refused to release the cost of security for the event

This story is a complete beat-up. If the cost has not been released, how can anyone claim taxpayers will contribute 'millions'?

The truth of the matter is carefully buried in two throw-away sentences:


However, they are in talks with the Home Office about a grant for "unexpected or exceptional costs" that is only given out if it threatens the stability of the force's policing budget. The final bill would have to total more than one per cent of the police force's overall spend - or about £1.8 million - for the grant to be successful.


So they are in talks about a grant they might not actually receive.


Hertfordshire Police said the Bilderberg Group has agreed to contribute some of the cost of security, but taxpayers will have to cover the rest of the bill.


So... just like every other event of this sort. High profile meetings of influential people = police presence = expense = taxpayer pays. Well, obviously. There's nothing new here. People are just getting over-excited because it's the Bilderberg group.

Can anyone tell me the last time their life was personally affected by the Bilderberg group? No, neither can I. Does anyone seriously believe David Cameron and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands can be legitimately described as 'the global elite?

Hilarious.
