The Mrs is becoming a Militant...says it is divorce time as she is on strike

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Oh dear, it seems that my article about how University lecturers were lazy, greedy and spent their time filling the heads of kids with left wing nonsense went down badly with the Mrs. That is, of course, because she is a lecturer, in sociology.

She thought about going on strike with her comrades in the Union. When lecturers go on strike it does not mean manning picket lines. Oh no, that would imply going to campus which is something many of them do rarely, and also actual physical effort. rather it means having the day off and doing no work at all.

But the Mrs reckons that she must show solidarity with her fellow exploited workers and so is indeed on strike. At this point I ponder the plight of the poor oppressed lecturers

Lazier than a scouser and greedier than a junior doctor - the University Lecturers go on strike - will anyone notice?

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

The excitement of the junior doctors strike is over. The pampered and overpaid apprentices, training to be in the top 3% of wage earners (for a 40 hour week) said it was not about money but about saving the poor old NHS. So the Government offered them more cash and the greedy bastards stopped striking and threatening to emigrate en masse. Shame. So next up in the public sector summer of fun are the University Lecturers who are having the day off today and tomorrow.

I write as the son and husband of a lecturer so am fully aware of how much work they do. Or rather how little. And they are well paid for doing very little. They have more or less complete job security unless they commit a heinous offence like questioning global warming or liking UKIP on their facebook page.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast for Paul Scott - this is why moral journalists break news of placings - ref Cyan Scoop

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Paul Scott is slating me for breaking news of the Cyan (CYAN) placing which the company has now confirmed in a grudging sort of manner. I examine why Paul is upset but explain why his argument is flawed and why he needs to direct his ire at the company not at me. Ever since there have been financial journalists our job has been to break stories of placings, bids and profits warnings. I explain why that is the moral thing to do and exactly why it was the moral thing to do to break the Cyan placing today. I've been breaking such stories as a financial journalist for 25 years. I am bloody good at it and so have no plans to stop. It is one of the few things I do which I can say, without doubt, is morally right. My snake encounter article, I mention in the podcast, is HERE

If Tony Blair did irony he'd propose a new Middle East war 5 weeks ahead of Chilcot - Oh what?

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

On July 6 the long awaited Chilcot report into the Iraq war will be published. Many of us are convinced that the war was illegal and that "trust me I'm Tony," as well as the loathsome shit Jack Straw, repeatedly lied to MP s as well as to us all. Mr Blair's claim about Weapons of Mass Destruction was clearly just a blatant lie. And thus it has been leaked that Blair as well as Straw will get a thorough roasting from Lord Chilcot.

XCite Energy - SP Angel sticks the boot in and I agree, It is toast

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

The oil team at SP Angel is normally uber charitable to the array of dogs that litter the hydrocarbons segment of the AIM Casino. But one thinks of Geoffrey Howe, a mild mannered and retiring chap, as he savaged the blessed Maggie in his resignation speech as, this morning, analyst Zac Phillips has stuck it to XCite Energy (XEL) like a man possessed.

Highland Natural Resources, the stench of Stanford (C)Rook and the related party deal that makes me run a mile

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I realise that over on the LSE Asylum criticising Highland Natural Resources (HNR) gets the sort of reaction normally reserved for those who suggest that the McCann's are not complete role models when it comes to best practice in babysitting, but a transaction announced back in 2015 looks very odd indeed to me. Any more red flags vicar?

Mosman Oil & Gas spunks shareholder cash on diamond exploration - disgrace

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Having failed repeatedly to make anything other than vast losses and a pigs ear from the oil and gas sector, Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) finds itself sitting on A$4.5 million (£2.2 million) and so appears determined to find new ways to spunk what is shareholders cash.

One noise of the night explained - bats have taken over the rat room at the Greek Hovel

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I can hear a loud chirping noise from outside as I prepare to go to sleep at night. Surely it cannot be a bird? I hear nothing in the day. Tonight all has been explained. Beneath the one room that is habitable at the Greek Hovel is the bat room, named after the dominant species of inhabitant when I arrived. Behind me but a level down, underneath the snake veranda, is the rat room, the veranda and the room both named for similar reasons. The latter has been cleansed of rats and it is where I store wood for the winter.
