Road blocks, police helicopters and blacked-out windows: But just who are the billionaires and politicians arriving for secretive Bilderberg conference at Watford hotel and what do they do there?

  • Attendees thought to include politicians, top business executives and royalty
  • Delegates were heckled by protesters as they arrived for four-day meeting
  • MP Michael Meacher describes delegates as the 'real top brass of Western finance capitalism'
  • Massive police operation could cost British taxpayer around £2million
  • Conspiracy theorists claim leaders use event to plot world domination
  • Bilderberg researcher: 'There are villains there who are basically trying to organise government' 
  • Jeff Bezos of Amazon and Eric Schmidt of Google will both be attending
  • List of 140 politicians, academics and businessmen only includes 14 women


Delegates for a private conference of top politicians and businesspeople from around the world have started to arrive at a luxury country hotel.

Several cars with blacked-out windows entered the gates of the Grove Hotel, near Watford, in Hertfordshire, this morning for the secretive meeting of the Bilderberg Group.

It is thought billionaire executives from multinational companies such as Amazon and Google, high-ranking political figures including Chancellor George Osborne, and even members of royal families are among the 130 or so attendees.

Famous for being shrouded in secrecy, the Bilderberg conference is taking place in Britain for the first time since 1998 and conspiracy theorists believe this is where leaders plot world domination.

The huge police operation drafted in to monitor the four-day event, which has previously attracted mass demonstrations, could cost the British taxpayer as much as £2million or more, it has been claimed.


Watford town mayor Dorothy Thornhill said: 'I think it's outrageous that the local taxpayer has to pick up the tab for ostensibly a private meeting of trillionaires, probably the most wealthy people in the world.

'Hertfordshire Constabulary have suddenly got this unexpected budget strain dumped on them at literally a month's notice. It's not on.'

Hertfordshire Police has not revealed details of the bill, but they are in talks with the Home Office about a grant for 'unexpected or exceptional costs'.


This is only approved if expenditure threatens a force's budget, which would need to be more than one per cent of its overall spend - or about £1.8million, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Hertfordshire Police said the Bilderberg Group has agreed to contribute some of the cost of security, but taxpayers will have to cover the rest.

A spokesman added: 'We will also be seeking funding from other sources to help cover the costs of policing and are in discussion with the Home Office about other funding sources.'
