In the southern English town of Watford, two entirely separate worlds and vastly different mindsets are coming into close proximity.
They might as well be a million miles apart.
Because there is not the remotest chance that the likes of Christine Lagarde, the International Monetary Fund managing director, or Douglas Flint, HSBC’s chairman, will ever rub shoulders in Watford with Controversy Clown or Judd Charlton the conspiracy ventriloquist.
Ms Lagarde, Mr Flint and a whole host of VIPs from politics, banking, business and royalty are staying in the luxurious Grove Hotel and leisure complex.
They are the Bilderberg Group, movers and shakers invited to move and shake behind closed doors.
No press, no public, no agenda, no statements, no questions: some would say no accountability.
Across a little valley there is a motley collection of non-movers and shakers.
