Come out Bilderbergers, your time is up! So used to operating under the cover of darkness, away from the glare of media lenses and public scrutiny. Not any more: haha! As the last Mercedes slunk through the Grove gates on Sunday, escorting the final delegate home, I basked in what had been a weekend scoring a twofold triumph.
Hundreds of activists, concerned citizens and media rubbed shoulders within the entrance area of the Grove specifically allocated by Watford authorities to house them. News that David Cameron was to arrive that afternoon was the hot topic of the day and whilst unexpected, the reactions drew major eyerolls, suspicion, scorn and downright anger.
IF you go down to the Grove today you're in for a big surprise... It's day one of Bilderberg. For the diehards - it's THE day to go to snatch the chance to witness a passing delegate zipping through the gates in a blackened Mercedes up to their weekend lair. Could it be Kissinger? Or did those mysterious silhouetted jowls belong to LinkedIn's Reid Hoffman?
