Bilderberg 2011: All aboard the Bilderbus
Guardian (UK) ^ | 6/3/11

Posted on 06/03/2011 9:08:54 PM PDT by DeaconBenjamin

As Europe groans, and austerity bites, as defaulting looms, and once proud nations fall to their knees in debt, there's only one annual conference of bankers and industrialists that can step in and save us all…


Next week, in Switzerland, Henry Kissinger and his brave band of corporate CEOs, high-wealth individuals and heavyweight thinktankers will lock arms with Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and David Rockefeller, and stand their ground against the economic contagion.

The last thing a bunch of bank bosses and multinational executives wants is for the nation-states of Europe to collapse, allowing their assets to be bought up on the cheap. Right?

This year, a bunch of less-than-happy Brits are heading out to St Moritz by minibus, to voice their concern at the policies being thrashed out at the conference. They've dubbed their fifteen-seater the Bilderbus, and it leaves Nottingham on Tuesday after work.

There are two seats free on the bus, since Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Ken Clarke have both been forced to cancel. Which is good news for the chamber maids at the Suvretta House (because Ken is so very untidy – cigar stubs and Ornette Coleman CDs everywhere …)

If you're interested to see what crops up on the official Bilderberg agenda, then keep an eye on their website. Jockeying for position are the crisis in the eurozone, the Arab Spring, the Fukushima fallout (with Germany backing away from nuclear), and of course, what to do about the internet. That old chestnut.

Maybe this year they'll hold a press conference like, I don't know, grown-ups might. I won't be holding my breath. But I will be sniffing the air of St Moritz. If I find out one thing this year, it's going to be what Kissinger has for breakfast.

Shame that I cannot make it this year. But what’s to say? Times are tough, and corporate is watching my expense account like a hawk.

You should do like I do and teleconference. I have my 3-d digital camera set up and a large monitor at the event, so all my bigwig globalist buddies can see me almost as if I was there. Imagine their surprise when I open up the can of “peanuts” and the colorful snakes shoot out at the camera. Oh, it’ll be uproarious fun. But shhhhh... don’t tell them or it’ll ruin the surprise. 2 years ago I got Kissinger with a small hand buzzer and he pooped himself a little. We laughed about it over drinks later.
