PERSONAL, UNDILUTED VIEWS FROM TOM WINNIFRITH

Half a Cow, Mad Vegans, Daft Millennials and the new £5 note

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

It appears that the new five pound note contains traces of tallow which is fat from a cow. Very small traces as I shall demonstrate below but that has not stopped more than 100,000 snowflake millennials signing an online petition calling for the notes to be withdrawn and the bankers responsible to be hung drawn and quartered. 

Okay I made the second bit up but an awful lot of folks are getting angry on behalf of vegans, Hindus, Jews and all sort of other minorities. As it happens the Jews are quite cool about it. The board of deputies says no Jews would have a problem unless they tried to eat the notes. How sensible but elsewhere the faux anger grows. It is the sort of faux anger

Toff Bashing by the Daily Mail in a "post fact" era

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

There is nothing wrong with a bit of toff bashing now and again. The sorrow of seeing an airhead Lib Dem win the Richmond Park by-election was softened by the fact that the defeated, sort of, Tory was the slippery posh Cameron type twit Zac Goldsmith. But even in what is deemed a "post-fact era" it helps to er..get your facts right when lambasting those born with silver spoons emerging from every orifice.

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Yesterday Cloudtag (CTAG) finally fessed up that Corvus Capital, the vehicle of dodgy Andrew Regan had dumped all its shares months ago at the peak of the ramp onto unsuspecting Bulletin Board Morons. But there was another belated disclosure of share dumping by Michael Hirschfield, as Nigel noted HERE. Mike who you say? Oooh er missus.

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Amryt Pharma (AMYT) has announced that it has secured a €20m debt facility from the European Investment Bank on, what broker Stifel says, are very attractive commercial terms. Stifel says that the facility will not only extend the company's funding until well into 2019, but also provide funding for development of acromegaly product AP102 and potential launch funding for Episalvan in partial thickness wounds. Stifel concludes that the shares are a buy at 14p with a price target of 49p. Yes indeed. Since we own the shares I thought we'd share the note with you.

Strat Aero - the Hulsey Smith share dump is on - Timber! 0p Target!

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Hulsey Smith was the chap whose Court filings demonstrated wholesale fraud at Strat Aero (AERO) - filings we published HERE despite Aero's legal attempts to hush them up. So when he settled his claims with a cash and shares payoff - weeks after Strat promised to fight him all the way - you kind of knew he'd dump sooner or later. Why hold shares in a company that commits fraud?

Photo article: Visiting Woodlarks seeing where readers money is transforming lives

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

On my way to Heathrow I stopped off at the Woodlarks campsite in Surrey a place where I have had an involvement since the birth of my daughter Olaf almost sixteen years ago, as I explained HERE. This site provides holidays for folks who are severely disabled and who would otherwise not get any sort of break. It is not a fashionable charity but it is one I have supported financially and which readers have supported over many years. To all those who have donated both to the Christmas festivities for 181 kids and also to the ongoing work here is the proof that your cash has made a difference.

Proud Dad - Daughter "Olaf" wins academic scholarship

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Those who have been reading my scribblings for long enough will remember that my daughter was born weighing just 1lb 4oz at 26 weeks. that was almost sixteen years ago. It was three months before UCH said that it was "when" she came home not "if" and even then we were warned there could be all sorts of problems.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Speaking at length about AIM fraud to a bird from Bloomberg

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

She was horrified. I am not sure she agreed with my line that the mainstream press were part of the problem not the solution but she agreed that AIM had its issues. On the bearcast today I look at Red Leopard (RLH), Formation Group (FRM), Mobile Streams (MOS) and its charming CEO - Andalas (ADL) - whose CEO is a tosser - Strat Aero (AERO), Finnaust (FAM), Inspirit (INSP), Plus 500 (PLUS), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO)), TrakM8 (TRAK) and Cloudtag (CTAG) plus one way of looking at it which sees 300 companies on AIM as a sort of fraud.
