Bilderberg 2013, VIDEO: House of Commons Holding Raucous Debate

Bilderberg is over. Time to find out what policy consensus will be implemented "in the environments which they [Bilderbergers] affect" (words said in 2010 by former Secretary General of NATO and two-time Bilderberg participant, Willy Claes)

House of Commons.

UPDATE: Labour MP Michael Meacher, who visited protesters at the weekend, today made good on his vow to officially quiz Osbourne on his Bilderberg attendance. However, it was MP Kenneth Clarke, a Bilderberg Steering Committee member who answered the question in the House of Commons, dismissing any theories that the group influences public policy, and claiming that the group is not beholden to public scrutiny.
