Bilderberg conspiracy theory maybe not (But there are still concerns).

The recent meeting of he Bilderberg Group, s an annual private conference of approximately 120 to 140 invited guests from North America and Europe in Watford  prompted genuine concerns from people concerned  about it nature 

All of of those  attending are people of influence About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labour, education and communications
And yet there are no public statement

According to  chairman Étienne Davignon, a major attraction of Bilderberg group meetings is that they provide an opportunity for participants to speak and debate candidly and to find out what major figures really think, without the risk of off-the-cuff comments becoming fodder for controversy in the mediaHowever, partly because of its working methods to ensure strict privacy, the Bilderberg group is accused of conspiracies.[ This outlook has been popular on both extremes of the political spectrum, even if they disagree about the exact nature of the group's intentions. Some on the left accuse the Bilderberg group of conspiring to impose capitalist domination,[33] while some on the right have accused the group of conspiring to impose a world government and planned economy.


Some of the far right fears are expressed but shot jock Alex Jones a person who thinks that shouting and haranguing any one who remotely disagrees with him means he's won the argument. 

Is latest outburst on Sundays politics show was a usual rant that properly convinced no one  and may well have a reverse effect

Indeed if I was a conspiracy theorist I would argue that  Alex Jones  was given space to rant his nonsense in order to discredit those like myself who are concerned about such a secretive assembly.

For years Conservative and Labour ministers have attended this conference and yet out own Parliament  is not informed by them what they discussed.  

The only way to defeat conspiracy theory is to openness. As long as world leaders continue to met in secret  they give a free range to nutters like Alex Jones  which mask's the real concern among those of us who are concerned about what could  be an affront to democracy.
