'At today's meeting police played down reports that the number of protesters converging on Watford could be in the hundreds or thousands.
Chief Inspector Rhodes said reports from the constabulary's US counterparts at Fairfax County Police, who had overseen last year's Bilderberg protest in Chantilly, Virginia, indicated fewer than 100 protesters had come from outside the area.
He said most demonstrators appeared to have come locally and been motivated by an anti-cut and anti-austerity agenda.'
Oh really? What do you think?
Is he right? Or is he in for the shock of his life?

HUMAN RACE GET OFF YOUR KNEES - THE LION SLEEPS NO MORE.
********************************************First and foremost we’d like to say a big warm THANK YOU to all you amazing peeps for patiently waiting for camping information. As you can imagine, trying to pull this event off in a few weeks whilst jumping through bureaucratic hoops and juggling multiple Bilderballs has been no mean feat.
Anyway, without further ado we are pleased to announce our camping details!!
The camp site, Phasels Wood is 5-10 mins drive away on Hemel Hempstead road at private scout campsite. Taxi
We have a whole field to ourselves complete with showers, toilets, and running water. You are sure to meet many like-minded people around the lovely campfire!
No residents nearby so noise not a problem. Accoustic music is fine. Police will be at the entrance as necessary CRB holders because of scout issue. No searches will be done.
The cost is £5 pounds per person day collected on entry. Gates open midday Thursday close midday Monday.
A music curfew at 11pm is encouraged. There are no shops nearby so please make sure you have food and drink for as long as you plan to stay.
YOU DON’T NEED TO BOOK THROUGH US, JUST TURN UP ON THE DAY AND PAY CASH UPON ENTRY
Please note! This is a private scout campsite and a charity, so by law they are not allowed to openly have any political affiliation, so they have kindly asked for people not to display protest signs on site. People are urged to be considerate of the site and ensure that all rubbish is put in the bins provided or taken home. Leave no trace!
There will also be a few police on duty at the entrance as CRB certificate holders are needed to be present for the safety of the scouts camping in a field nearby. However there are not going to be any searches and the police stress they aren’t there to stop any fun, just be on hand in case of trouble and provide a first aid point. They seem very cool and relaxed to us and are looking forward to the festival!
