Galloway speaks out against group

by Adam Binnie , Web content editor Updated on in News

MP George Galloway and firebrand American radio DJ Alex Jones are among the high-profile figures to speak out against Bilderberg Group after the Watford Observer revealed it was holding its meeting in the town.

Jones, who earlier this year launched a petition to have Piers Morgan deported from America due to his anti-gun views, has already vowed to protest outside The Grove during the meeting.

In a statement on his Information Wars website, he warned British authorities not to try to prevent him entering the country as Canadian authorities did when he tried to attend a Bilderberg meeting in 2006.

It said: “Alex Jones will travel to the United Kingdom to cover the protest unless he is barred from entering the country by UK authorities who have previously prevented other media personalities such as Michael Savage from entering based on their political viewpoints. Any attempt to deport Jones will be seen as an embarrassing PR disaster for both UK authorities and the Bilderberg Group.”

Also commenting on the news was Respect MP George Galloway, who said: “What did Watford do to deserve the descent of the Bilderberg ghouls amongst them?”

MarsLander says "It's business for Watford. That's a good thing". Is it a good thing? Watford gets international notoriety for which the HCC residents have the dubious pleasure of footing the policing bill. Cutting even more available funs for Herts policing. Police Commissioner David Lloyd needs to tell us how much.

maybe; I don't know of him, thing is I don't like Galloway, but sometimes there is a truth in what he says, and this may well be one of those times, these people are having access to top politicians in a way we mere plebs could never have. If this is a case of organised money I really think the words of FDR should be headed something like >gov by organised money can be just as bad as gov by organised mob

Jones is a crank for railing against the only intelligent thing Piers Morgan ever said. For that reason alone he should be barred. That's no more banning free speech than protecting us from gun nuts. We in UKIP will do all we can to protect this democratic Bilderberg group. Oops...I forgot, we have no power and control no local authorities, have no MPs and 74% of electors rejected us. Bugger!

And I ask again. What are these loud mouthed media whores actually protesting about? They don't know themselves, but it gets them headlines which is all they were ever after. They aren't after exposing a global conspiracy, they aren't after world peace. Galloway famously threw down the mace in the House of Commons. ON PRINCIPAL! Then he changed parties (and principals), and appeared on Big Brother pretending to be a dog or cat or something. Does anyone on this planet take this man seriously?

Is that true? Is Labour in this shadowy organisation? They should have the decency to come clean and remove the veil of secrecy. Our elected politiicians should not be members of a secret political and financial order. What's going on Ed? What's it all about? What don't you want us to know?

Apologies to Mike Wright! I submitted me comment before I'd read his other story in which he does say what the Bilderberg Group is. I expect all the conspiracy theorist nutters will have a field day. As for the comments about Labour, I would say it's a virtual certainty that Blair, Brown and other New Labour ministers have attended meetings of the group in the past. Somewhere in my home library I have a book that claimed the world is run by supposed descendants of Jesus Christ who form the Knights of St John. Now, that is real conspiracy theory for you!

hello Mr or Ms Marslander I see you are still struggling with the concept of "Troll" . On the subject of this event I would say that irrespective of your opinion on the group this is going to cost us a lot of money, and yes while some local hotels and shops may benefit from it overall it will cost us money. On the subject of the Bildernberg group, whilst in the years after the WW2 and to a lesser extent Cold war years I can see it being a good thing; maybe (well more than maybe) it has had its day and such things give Banks etc to much influence on Governments. On the distraction that is Anon I do find it somewhat ironic when we are talkng about a group as secretive as this.

Been living in a cave overseas for a week so am wondering exactly what all the fuss is about? I had to look up this group and unless someone has any astonishing revelations about them whats the big deal? I also had to look up this DJ and to be honest I have to agree with however said that whatever he stands against is probably actually a good thing. I mean, what kind of idiot do you have to be to not see the need for changes in US gun laws! As to the police bill, surely that would be recharged to the Grove who would pass it onto their customer.

I suspect Tony is right about the bill for policing the meeting. Certainly it is the case that all football clubs have to pay to have their matches policed and I can recall some years ago making a query about police providing security for the wedding of a celebrity couple. I actually received a phone call from the officer in charge who assured me that the bill was sent to the couple and did not come out of public funds. This is probably the case here and the Bilderberg Group will have to pay the police bill. I would also imagine that given some of the names of the people who will be attending, the Grove and the police must have considered the very real possibility of an assassination attempt or bomb attack, which could well affect ordinary members of the public or Grove staff. I doubt they will worry too much about the likes of crackpots like George Galloway or other conspiracy theorists.

Powerful people throughout history have always had undue influence - that is how they get to be powerful and wealthy! Why do you think successive monarchs in this country wielded enormous power except for their own ends? Worrying about it doesn't change anything. Whatever system is extant, there will always be those who rise to the top, whether it be a monarchy, democracy or fascist or communist dictatorship. Were Lenin and Stalin and the Bolsheviks any different to Hitler and his evil gang? And if you go back to the days of the Spanish Inquisition the power of the Catholic Church and its torturers was immense. It's a pity more people didn't pay attention in history classes at school, for if history teaches us anything at all it is that history always repeats itself.

I would suggest, and have that this group is somewhat self serving, can that be evil? yes, is it an overt conspiracy like SPECTRE no. It is however somewhat more than a bunch of people talking to each other and should be recognized as such, indeed there is truth to asserting as you do that it is in part the way the world works. As to its effect, the stated purpose was at inception stability, and yes if they contributed to this that was a good, however I don't see that kind of influence today. In relation to conspiracy I think it is the wrong term really, it is more Oligarchic and as such is clearly at odds with democracy, here in lies my problem with it.

And what precisely was the old Soviet Union if it wasn't an oligarchy? It fits the definition precisely, i.e. a form of power structure in which power rests with a small number of people. In the Soviet Union only members of the Communist Party were allowed to vote and hold office. Until the Berlin Wall came down and the USSR collapsed, weren't all countries formerly in the Eastern bloc oligarchies, especially countries like Rumania and Albania, effective dictatorships? And what about Communist China and North Korea today? Aren't they oligarchies too? Why do the likes of Galloway and his ilk only ever protest about alleged capitalist conspiracies and never about left-wing ones? Couldn't even Britain be said to be an oligarchy in a sense in that whatever party is in power the leaders, i.e. Cabinet, whether New Labour, Tory or Coalition, generally come from a privileged background of public schools and Oxbridge? ALL organisations and political parties, even the Socialist Workers' Party, are oligarchies because they are run by a tiny group of people. Really, naivety rules OK!
