World Flocking To Davos for WEF

#1
As in previous years, the who is who of the corporate and political world are descending on Davos, these years guest list (in no particular order in terms of importance):

Queen Rania of Jordan
Tony Bliar
Angy Merkel
David Cameron and Nick Clegg
Treasury Secretary Geithner
Bill Clinton
Napoleon Sarkozy
Kofi Annan
Bank Ki Moon
Norways Permier Jens Stoltenberg
Swedens Premier Reinfeldt
Sheick Khalifa Al Thinawi (Qatar)
Prince Turki Al Faisal (Saudi)
Jacob Zuma
Felipe Calderon, Mexican President
President Medvedev of Russia coming afterall

Corporate Tycoons:

Bill Gates
George Sorros
Nouriel Roubbini
Robert Zoellick (Worldbank) etc etc

Looking at this list, it looks like the Swiss Armed forces and Police, and especially so the Swiss Air Force will be clocking overtime and likely be really stretched for this week. Security is ultra tight, outer perimeters start 40km outside Davos. Most VIPs arrive at Zurich Airport and are taken by Helicopter courtesy of the Air Force to Davos in approx half an hour. Having been to Davos many times (though not during the WEF) I wonder how they put up all these folks adequately. What will come of it all?

What gat? These are adjustable armrests, quite common these days for such purposes. Evidently this guy does not feel like using them, so they are spread apart.
