This year's 'Bilderberg Group' meeting comes to an end

Wed 9th Jun 2010

The yearly meeting of the secretive Bilderberg group - where the world's most powerful people meet behind closed doors to discuss world affairs in secret - is wrapping up in Sitges, Spain.

The unofficial conference of around 150 invitees who are all insiders in politics, banking, business, the military and the media. The group's meetings are notoriously secretive and are closed to the public; they reportedly meet to strategize global politics and economics for the coming year. The recent 2010 conference was held at a luxury hotel in Sitges under heavy security conditions.

Reports suggest that this year's meeting focused on the development and strengthening of the Euro.

The conference usually attracts a dedicated group of protestors and journalists attempting to cover the event, but police and security guards have been able to deter them.

A Guardian jouranlist who is covering the event from Sitges said that this years protests have been very low key, compared to previous years where protesters and journalists were met with violence and arrests.

Unlike previous years Skelton was able to take secret photographs of a few of the attendees at the conference, where the deletes try their best to remain unseen. Skelton was able to snap a picture of Henry Kissinger in attendance at the conference, still heavily involved in world affairs.

"We still are trying to work out who goes to this thing, let alone what they talk about" said Skelton.

The Bilderberg Group has been in existence since the 1950's and has been cited as being instrumental in the formation of the European Union and shaping modern globalization.

The event remains highly secretive, which is something Skelton is confused about, given that the aim of the organization is to work towards a better world.

"I don't really understand the secrecy. But, what I do understand is that elected officials are going to this thing. For example, David Cameron, our new prime minister went in 2008, just two years before he became prime minister. That seems to be a bit of a pattern, people attending Bilderberg and then getting a bit of a career boost" said Skelton.

Skelton also learned from a limousine driver that the estimated cost for security alone at the conference was about 10 million Euros.
