Confirming information gathered by veteran journalist Jim Tucker’s source, it appears almost certain that the secretive Bilderberg group will conduct its annual confab at the luxury Grove Hotel just outside Watford, UK from June 6 to June 9.
As we detailed in an April 2 report entitled Bilderberg 2013 Set To Take Place Near London?, Tucker’s source told him that the conference was likely to take place within 40 miles of London, with Watford located just 20 miles north of the capital.
Information obtained by London Guardian writer Charlie Skelton and the website bilderberg2013.co.uk pins down the Grove Hotel in the Hertfordshire countryside as being the site for a meeting which habitually attracts over a hundred influential power brokers from the spheres of business, banking, academia, politics and the media, yet comparatively little press attention.
“The whole hotel – including three restaurants, a luxury spa and walled garden – is completely booked out by a private group from the 5th to the 9th of June. This was first spotted by an Italian documentary maker who is an expert on Bilderberg,” according to the website.
Attempts to book rooms for that period (see screenshot below) confirm that the hotel is unavailable. A Google maps image shows that the hotel is surrounded by a sprawling estate including two wooded areas and has a long approach drive, making it ideal for keeping demonstrators and prying journalists away.
Hotel staff have also been informed that a “major” and “high profile” group will be descending on the venue in early June and that the hotel will be on “lockdown” during that time.
“We don’t know what it is, senior staff know what it is but they won’t tell us. They first heard about this unusual event in January,” said one employee.
Hotel spa members who have paid for yearly memberships are also being told that they will have no access to the facilities over the course of Wednesday June 5 to Sunday June 9 and are being promised 5 extra days will be added to their membership as a result.
“We were told by the nearby Fullerians Rugby Club, that it has taken an unusual booking from Herts Constabulary, who have booked the entire grounds and facilities for ten days – spanning the weekend of the conference. The rugby club has no idea what the booking is actually for. Could this be the base of operations for security during the event?” states the website.
The schedules of top Bilderberg members also correlate with the meeting being held in the UK, including regular attendee Neelie Kroes who will be in the UK over this weekend and Queen Beatrix, who has a window between June 6 and June 9.
“To be clear: we have no final confirmation that Bilderberg is going to be located at the Grove Hotel, but from what we know of Bilderberg’s MO this set-up fits the bill. There are few other groups with the power and resources to shut down a major hotel for five days like this in conditions of such secrecy,” states the bilderberg2013.co.uk website.
Earlier speculation that Bilderberg would return to Chantilly, Virginia for the second year running now appears to be confirmed as the “red herring” that Bilderberg steering committee members routinely like to throw out to fool journalists.
Bilderberg will return to the UK for the first time since its 1998 meeting at the Turnberry Hotel and golf course in southwestern Scotland.
The Bilderberg Group is an annual confab of around 120 of the most influential power brokers on the planet from the world of politics, business, banking, academia, media, and even royalty. The organization’s yearly meeting is held in a plush hotel resort in either Europe, Canada or America, but despite a plethora of heavy hitters in attendance, the mainstream media affords the event scant coverage, labeling it a mere talking shop despite former NATO Secretary-General and Bilderberg member Willy Claes’ 2010 admission that Bilderberg attendees are mandated to implement policy decisions that are formulated during the meeting.
There are innumerable other examples of how Bilderberg has influenced major global events ahead of time, picking Presidents and Prime Ministers on a regular basis with total contempt for the democratic process.
In 2009, Bilderberg chairman Étienne Davignon even bragged about how the Euro single currency was a brainchild of the Bilderberg Group.
Bilderberg has not been short of bad publicity in recent months. In February, Italian lawyer Alfonso Luigi Marra requested that the Public Prosecutor of Rome investigate the clandestine organization for criminal activity, questioning whether the group’s 2011 meeting in Switzerland led to the selection of Mario Monti as Prime Minister of Italy.
Earlier this week, Honorary President of the Supreme Court of Italy and former Senior Investigative Judge Ferdinando Imposimato accused the Bilderberg Group of being behind terrorist attacks in Europe as part of Operation Gladio in an interview with an Italian news website.
