back to article Not-so Secret Rulers of the World gather to talk cybersecurity, AI and, er, TalkTalk?

It's the conspiracy theorists' favorite time of the year, as the annual Bilderberg Meeting kicks off on June 9 at the luxurious Taschenbergpalais Hotel in Dresden. The meetings, held since 1954, bring together around 130 business and political leaders from Europe and North America. This year ten main topics are up for …

    Bilderberg ...

    ... the poor man's Davos (or was that Davros?)

    Lizard people

    The lizard people engineered the collapse of the middle classes, to cement their plutonomic rule.

      If Henry Kissinger is there, he is well known as a tool of the Rothschild Illuminati Alien Lizard Baby Eaters so everything is OK, it's a normal meeting.

      Nothing to see here, go about your/our business folks!

    I like to think the conspiracy theorists have got it all wrong, that it isn't some secret Freemason/NWO meeting.

    I think, instead, it's just a massive orgy and booze up.

      And when its all over there will be a suspiciously low number of homeless on the streets of surrounding cities, though only the cutest of them will have gone missing. Don't go near those black mobile soup kitchens.

      I have it on good authority that, before the USA made a terrible mistake and had him killed, Osama Bin Laden was a regular at these meetings. There is a reason the previous administration never seriously pursued him...but I'm not telling what it is...

        Did your "good authority" happen to dribble a bit and talk to walls by any chance?

        Conspiracy theories aside, it wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility that one of his relatives has attended, the Bin Ladens are a pretty well off Saudi family.

          I wasn't being serious; or didn't think I was...Are people taking that throwaway unthought out and instantly forgotten, and forgettable, comment for real? Hahahaha

            That be a perverse laugh indeed, Geoffrey W, whenever you realise all sorts of realities are so easily created and destroyed. Surely you don't think everything is orderly and ordered whenever madness and mayhem, chaos and catastrophe run riot in systems everywhere?

            Try to understand and accept this is true, for whenever it is not, is it then something completely new which all will be forced to deal with in order to have any effective say in the direction and way of the future. I Kid U Not.

            Capiche, El Reg? And what is IT to be? A Wild Wacky Western Delight or Exotic Erotic Eastern Treat, both of which can, if certain definitive needs dictate, be Advanced Persistent and Active Cyber Threats to be fully explored and ruthlessly exploited? Where be located the spaces for the brightest and smartest of systems analysis ?

            And why ever not a quantum amalgam of them both, to present something else quite different and unique and Earth shatteringly enlightening? Would that be too alien an AI Programming Project for current struggling with reality administrations to admit is transparently confronting them, and/or just far too much for a widely perceived and ill conceived elite and a chosen few, battling in vain against future remote progressive revisionary leadership[s] ..... for there may be considerably more than just the one?

    The meetings, held since 1954...

    ... have achieved nothing but to confirm the human propensity to form self-promoting cliques.

      That's what they want you to think.

    They almost had me there with the inclusion of Dido Harding however a little tin foil hat searching on the internet states she was from McKinsey & Co is the daughter of a lord and the most telling nugget of information is that she grew up in a family pig farm in Dorset. I can only imagine the stories she knows about top Tories therefore the Bilderberg meetings are a cover of our lizard overlords.

    icke was right

    First of all it's bête noire, and secondly I'm pretty sure Donald Trump barely knows who Lindsay Graham is.

    I Googled him, because I didn't know, and I find he endorsed Jeb Bush (everyone laughed and laughed), then Ted Cruz (also extremely funny).

    Apparently he won't vote for Trump, which must mean he's going to vote for Hilary. Odd for a Republican I would have thought.

    Massive lecturer-audience discrepancy

    So, 100-odd clueless world and business leaders are going to be Clueless in Dresden for 3 days. I mean, they invited the Dutch king who is already happy when he manages to tie his shoelaces in the morning

    I can't say for sure, but I think the Anonymous annual convention is much more fun. I know it's more anonymous.
