Ireland Wants Answers: Why Was Finance Minister at Bilderberg Meeting?

Stephen: My, it’s all happening in the “I”-elands today…

As it appears Iceland is starting to arrest those responsible for its financial ruin (see unconfirmed story, below, on Iceland), just across the waters this week, Ireland’s Finance Minister Michael Noonan is facing tough questions from his parliamentary colleagues  as to why he attended the 2012 Bilderberg Meeting last month – and what he said.

But he’s not talking…

Noonan Presence at Bilderberg Group Conference Cost 4,300 Euros

By Paul Cullen, Irish Times – June 16, 2012 cost of Minister for Finance Michael Noonan’s attendance at the annual conference of the secretive Bilderberg group in the US this month was more than €4,300, he has told TDs.

He was invited to attend the meeting “given my position as Minister for Finance” and used the opportunity to tell fellow attendees of the opportunities that exist in Ireland for investors and multinational companies.

Mr Noonan, along with former attorneys general Paul Gallagher and Peter Sutherland, was one of 145 invited leaders and opinion formers who took part in the three-day conference of the western world’s movers and shakers in Chantilly, Virginia.

His attendance was queried by a number of TDs from Labour, Sinn Féin and the technical group, all of whom sought information in parliamentary questions on his discussions at the meeting and the cost.

Mr Noonan told the Deputies that he outlined the significant progress Ireland was making in restoring stability and growth to the economy.

Pat Nulty, who lost the Labour whip last year over opposition to budget cuts, said Mr Noonan’s response lacked detail.

“The Irish people have a right to know what their senior Ministers are saying at a meeting like this, and what stance they are taking on global issues.”

Prison Planet‘s Steve Watson adds: have noted that the recent bailout of Ireland and it’s compliance with the so called troika agenda of the European Central Bank, the European commission and the International Monetary Fund are undoubtedly the key reasons why Noonan’s presence was requested at the meeting.

In the wake of Bilderberg, it has been rumoured that the three elitist institutions are considering relaxing the terms of the bailout to allow Ireland to return to borrowing on the open market.

Previously leaked documents from meetings have illustrated how the Bilderberg Group, contrary to the media-generated myth that the confab represents a harmless talking shop, sets the consensus for policy decisions sometimes decades in advance.

A clear example is the 1955 Bilderberg meeting held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, West Germany. Documents read by the BBC and later released by Wikileaks divulge how Bilderberg members were discussing the creation of the euro single currency nearly 40 years before it was officially introduced in the 1992 Maastricht Treaty.

In the US, politicians attending Bilderberg have been charged with violating the Logan Act, a law passed under the John Adams administration in 1799 which states that it is illegal for “unauthorized citizens” to negotiate with foreign governments.
