PERSONAL, UNDILUTED VIEWS FROM TOM WINNIFRITH

Report from the Greek Hovel: I fail to kill the first snake spotted. Drat!

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Damn. It was a near miss but I failed to kill it. The serpent was not in the olive groves where I trod carefully today as, armed with my new axe pruned 20 trees. I start with the highest yielders, the ones nearest the house which have always enjoyed my tender care. Those in the long grass on the further reaches of our land I save to the end as I know what will be lurking in that grass.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - picking up Andrew Monk on a couple of things

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Forgive the late bearcast. Blame it on Greek Hovel business. In today's podcast I look at Folli Follie, shares in which are slumping again as I warned you the other day HERE - tomorrow might be D (for Death) Day. I then take up Andrew Monk on AIQ (AIQ), Petra Diamonds (PDL) and the idea of consolidating brokers and Nomads via M&A. It makes no sense Andrew. Then I look at the GoTech (GOT) shambles - its now a dope play but frankly you must be a dope to own this stock. Then I cover Optibiotix (OPTI) again with a point folks like Cynical Bear have missed. Finally its i3 Energy (I3E). Thanks to those who have sponsored me as I suffer the dual agonies of walking 30 miles and having to listen to Brokerman Dan drone on all day, but 99% of bearcast listeners have not yet donated a tenner. Please do so HERE

Photo Article - can you now see the scale of the rebuild of what was the Greek Hovel? I'm very excited!

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Finally I hope the photos below show the scale of the rebuild, turning the small Greek Hovel into an eco palace. I was shocked at the, rapid, progress made since February and my last visit. The scale of what is being undertaken is only now dawning on me. We start with the shutters and door to the bat room which used to have open gaps and an earth and rock floor - it was where the animals ( both domesticated and wild) lived.

Julie Meyer - about that £172,192.70 owed to Barclays, what is a personal guarantee from you worth?

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

With Julie Meyer telling the US taxman, the IRS, that she has just £500 in cash and owing money to three banks, the IRS and HMRC, you might think that her personal situation could not get any worse. Well perhaps it could. I refer you to the administrators preliminary report into the demise of Ariadne Capital Limited below.

Julie Meyer and another big bank bill emerges thanks to Winnleaks

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

As each day goes by we discover yet another institution to whom Julie Meyer MBE owes money. Already we have identified the IRS,HMRC and two banks. Thanks to Winnileaks here, below, is a third, HSBC. One wonder if any of her creditors know about all the others and if that is going to make one especially jumpy and demand immediate repayment rather than accepting a payment plan? that could be awkward. Meanwhile are her various creditors happy that she has retained uber expensive lawyer Julian Pike of Farrar & Co to act for her in a personal as well as a corporate capacity?

Photo Article - a gentle start to my olive pruning: but this will be tough

With the one room at the Greek Hovel that was used to store goods out of action for re-flooring my possessions - such as they are - are scattered around the plot. After a bit of a search my saw was located. It had been used to stir concrete and so, rather sheepishly, on of the builders did his best to clean it. It is usable. My small axe (about a foot long) which one uses for taking away sprouts of new growth at the base of an olive tree could not be found. I have just bought a new one from Vangelis in Kambos.

Another Court case for Ariadne Capital over unpaid bills emerges - was lawyer Peter Bradley upfront with the Court? Julie smears AGAIN

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

In the latest trove of Julie Meyer documents emerging at Winnileaks we find a cracking case of another supplier to Ariadne Capital Limited ( now in administration) having to take it to the High Court to get paid. But I wonder was it paid? And was Ariadne's in house lawyer Peter Bradley entirely upfront with the Court. For the avoidance of doubt, Bradley is a good man but I suspect that he is also a "Good German."

Back at the Greek Hovel - snake report: two more corpses

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

When I am in England I do not think much about snakes. Okay, three times a week I pick Joshua up from his nursery and he says "snakes" so, on the way home, we pop into Pets At Home and go to see the snakes. They are tiny little creatures, corn snakes, which nearly always hide in their houses and only rarely peek out. When they do, Joshua gets very excited. Most of the time we see no snakes so Joshua just says "bye bye snakes" and we head on past the fish where Joshua says "fish," past the hamsters and gerbils where he says "mice", and to the rabbits where he says "By Bye Babbits" and we head home. And I think nothing of it.

Oh well that will keep me happy for the next few days. What fun. Before I go on, more than 1000 folks will listen to this bearcast. I know you can all afford to donate £10 to Woodlarks for my sponsored walk - please do so HERE and NOW otherwise I shall have to keep reminding you every day up until 28 July! On today's podcast I discuss Ms Lingerie on Expenses and the UK honours system, Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP), Optibiotix (OPTI), Paternoster Resources (PRS), Physiomics (PYS), Brave Bison (BBSN) and Paternoster Resources (PRS), home to Amanda Van Dyke.
