Snake killer foiled - but I did it the Greek way

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

A morning at the Greek Hovel working on frigana poisoning, lunch by the sea at Kitries and then a leisurely drive over the mountain roads back to Kardamili. That was the order of the day for the Mrs and myself. I write from the bar of the wonderful Meletsina Village hotel - my top tip for staying in Karadmili - with a Gin & Tonic looking out over the sea in the late afternoon sun. But I am frustrated.

As we drove over the mountains, the Mrs cried "there's a snake". Sure enough there was indeed a snake slithering towards safety on the other side of the road. These days I think Greek so without hesitating I swerved sharply, not thinking of what might be heading the other way around the next bend, and drove over the middle of the snake. Kill! Thought I.

But much to my dismay

Weekly postcard #113 - as a libertarian could I consider a war against ISIS a just war?

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

As a libertarian I oppose foreign wars. I'd like to see the UK spend less on defence and argue that nearly all of of overseas ventures have been monumental and costly failures. Yes I would include World War One in that category. We entered WW2 for the wrong reasons (imperial treaty alliances) but ultimately it was a just war. Would a full scale war against ISIS be a just war? Could I support it?

New World Oil & Gas EGM votes No - Shares to stay suspended as Omnishambles rolls on

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

At No-one is watching O'clock ( 6.29 PM) the news finally came through. Congratulations to Ben "pitchfork" Turney - the EGM of AIM casino posterboy New World Oil & Gas (NEW) has not passed either proposal made by the board.

The two motions needed to get 66.67% of those voting to pass. On the placing the yes side managed to get to 50.7% on the handing out of warrants like confetti to adviser motion they got to just 31.94% - thus both motions fail.

Lombard Risk - now run by a prize shit and a liar after boardroom coup - sell

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Lombard Risk Management (LRM) has announced that “John Wisbey has informed the board of his intention to stand down as Chief Executive and director of the company with immediate effect in order to pursue other opportunities”. We understand differently.

It seems very odd that the company’s founder who has worked for it for 25 years would suddenly decide to quit immediately “to pursue other opportunities” - and believe this not to be the case. In fact we know that it is not the case. This was a boardroom coup led by Chairman Philip Crawford who  has gained power as now full-time Executive Chairman, apparently “on an interim basis until such time that the board is in a position to appoint a new Chief Executive”.  Crawford is a scumbag and this RNS is quite simply a lie.

New World Oil & Gas EGM farce details emerge

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Detail is slowly emerging from the farcical New World Oil & Gas (NEW) EGM in Jersey today. Criminal market abuser Chris Oil was not present - maybe his passport has already been confiscated. But Ben Turney was attending as were no less than four heavies from broker Cornhill Capital.  The bottom line is, knowing that a show of hands would go against the company, it started the meeting by calling a poll - that is to say a vote of those actually casting votes on the two resolutions. However...

The bigoted Ulster cake makers Ashers and our silly laws

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Ulster cake makers Ashers were today penalised and ordered to pay £500 compensation to gay rights campaigner Gareth Lee becuase they discriminated against him by refusing to produce a cake proclaiming support for gay marriage.  Ashers is run by devout Christians who claim this is a matter of conscience.

I tend to think that Ashers is run by bigots but they risk their own capital running a shop and so should be free to sell to whom they want. Other cake shops will produce cakes celebrating gay marriage so it is not as if Mr Lee could not use his pink pounds to get a cake anywhere. 

I would hope that enough folks would choose to boycott shops run by bigots

A two snake day & the Mrs is on a plane struck by lightening

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I was meant to pick the Mrs up at Kalamata airport in about thirty minutes but it appears that she is back at Gatwick. Her plane was struck by lightening and so had to turn back. Now her phone battery is dead so what to do? Sit in Kalamata and have an ouzo or two? Sounds like a plan.

Meanwhile it has been a two snake day.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 19 May - another snake encountered and snakes telling lies on AIM

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Yes, this time it was at the Greek Hovel less than 15 yards from the building. And I was just 3 or 4 foot away. Cripes. I really do not like snakes which brings me on to Philip Crawford on Lombard Risk and Nomad Charles Stanley which today signed off on an OUTRIGHT LIE of an RNS penned by Crawford. I have a 14 year old score to settle with the tosser Crawford and so accuse him of lying to investors today. Is that not against AIM rules? Elsewhere I look at Tungsten, Plus 500, Sefton, Coms and Rose Petroleum which are all sells. Events at Rose have moved fast since the bearcast vindicating me (see HERE)
