Whilst trawling the Internet for information about Shell, I stumbled across a report of a super-secret Bilderberg meeting held in Italy in June 2004.

This was the 50th-anniversary of what has been described as a confab of a mysterious society of world leaders. According to sources that have penetrated the high-security meetings in the past, the Bilderberg meetings emphasize a globalist agenda and promote the idea that the notion of national sovereignty is antiquated and regressive. Some conspiracy theorists believe that the organisation is intent on world domination.

‘Shadowy aura’

“It’s officially described as a private gathering,” noted a BBC report, “but with a guest list including the heads of European and American corporations, political leaders and a few intellectuals, it’s one of the most influential organizations on the planet.”

According to another BBC report, “Not a word of what is said at Bilderberg meetings can be breathed outside. No reporters are invited in and while confidential minutes of meetings are taken, names are not noted. The shadowy aura extends further the anonymous answerphone message, for example; the fact that conference venues are kept secret.

Among the participants at the 2004 meeting were: –

John Kerr, a then director of Shell Transport and Trading Company Plc. (now a director of Royal Dutch Shell Plc)

Jeroen van der Veer, the then Group Chairman of the Royal Dutch Shell Group, now the CEO of Royal Dutch Shell Plc

HM Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, reportedly the largest shareholder in Shell.

Jorma Ollila, the then Chairman of Nokia: now the non executive Chairman of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. Perhaps his job interview was held at the meeting?

Mr Ollila seems intent on keeping an extremely low profile at Shell. Thus far there is no evidence whatsoever of his presence since he joined Shell in June 2006.  What is he being paid for? We had hoped that he would bring some much needed integrity to Shell senior management but it is now apparent that at least to the extent set out above, he shares the same controversial background as some other Royal Dutch Shell Group luminaries.

    Lord Kerr of Kinlochard is the man who co-wrote the (incomprehensible to ordinary folk) draft EU Constitution with Giscard d’Estaing. In the UK House of Lords, according to Hansard he does not appear to have done much but is on the Committee looking into the finances of the European Communities. Rather like putting the fox in charge of the chicken run perhaps.

    Kerr is on the Fulbright Commission & the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He is a Rhodes Trustee. He is a director of Rio Tinto, a company associated with the Royal Institute of International Affairs. RIIA Chatham House was formed at the same time as its American counterpart the Council on Foreign Relations,

    Professor Carroll Quigley told us that Cecil John Rhodes created a secret society to bring the uncivilised world under the control of the British Empire and to re-unite the United States with England. Frank Aydelotte, the American director of the Rhodes Trust, added that Rhodes wanted to organise …“so great a power as to hereafter render wars impossible.

    Above all, Lord Rhodes was dedicated to the perpetuation & extension along classic capitalist lines of the British Empire, which Fabians schemed to dissolve. Obviously he never intended that his fortune amassed in the gold fields & diamond mines of South Africa be used to train young Americans in Fabian Socialism; or to promote peaceful social revolution, under a cloak of learning and Old World culture, in a lost colony of the British Empire. (Fabian Freeway by Rose L. Martin. Heritage. Chicago 1966 page 359)
