Dorothy Thornhill, Liberal Democrat directly-elected Mayor of Watford, tells us on her blog that she has had to sign the Official Secrets Act.
The police asked her to do so because they wanted to brief her about security arrangements for the secretive Bilderberg Group, which has just met in Watford. The absurd secrecy about this event can serve only to fuel some of the equally absurd conspiracy theories surrounding the Bilderberg Group. David Icke must be having a field day.
Requests to sign the Official Secrets Act are also absurd. The Act is either the law or it isn’t. Since it is the law, it has the same force as any other law. It is no more necessary for the police to ask anyone to “sign the Official Secrets Act” than it would be for Tesco to ask each customer to sign the Theft Act before they entered a supermarket.
The senior police officer who demanded the signature of Watford’s Mayor is a pompous arse – but not as pompous an arse as the self-aggrandising participants in the circle jerk that is Bilderberg. You can tell how ‘important’ Bilderberg is by the fact that no Liberal Democrats – not even Nick Clegg – were invited to the meeting.
You see, this is where the Liberal Democrats went wrong. They failed to choose as leader someone who belongs to what David Icke says is a secret group of reptilian humanoids that controls humanity.
Reptilian humanoids or not, the heavy policing in Watford for this vanity project has cost taxpayers £1.3 million.
