The London Daily News has been receiving dispatches from its Athens correspondent that armed security officials have maintained the secretive Bilderberg Group session in an atmosphere of almost hysterical paranoia, to keep all media out.
The Bilderberg Group which meets in secret each year is the opportunity for the world’s most influential politicians and financiers to debate the "high political issues" of the day in total secrecy. Anyone who attended the London G-20 summit would have thought that this was the precursor for the Bilderberg meeting in Athens.
The media have been locked out of the meeting Athens, and a total blackout is operating in Greece, with local media in many cases not even covering the event. One local journalist who spoke with the London Daily News correspondent in Athens said:
"We have been told by senior government officials that covering the event could cost us our jobs. Greece is in the depths of a major recession and I cannot afford to lost my job".
In terms of the content of the event, sources close to attendees of the Bilderberg have said to the London Daily News, that the recession and the environment are all taking major segments of the meeting. The attendants of the Bilderberg will be heads of governments, heads of central banks, parliamentarians and shopw business people.
The media in London is still frothing at the mouth over the expenses scandal of MPs, not giving much thought to the implications of the worlds most important leaders meeting in secret in Greece.
The "Bilderbergers" might well be wallowing in the crisis that has engulfed the worlds economy, accepting that this economic crisis is the responsibility of the careless and greedy practices of the heads of the banks and governments, and the way forward will be tough and testing.
Have a few Ouzo's on us guys, but why don’t you let us in? What is there to hide?
