Work at the Welsh Hovel is now taking place in what has been the dining room but will become the main kitchen. This part of the house was bolted on to the original hovel but is still very old. We uncovered a window tax window on its outside in what was the hidden room, a tiny room plastered in by the previous owners which you enter from the library but lies on the ouside wall of the dining room. So one can date the dining room as pre 1696.Thursday 24 September 2020
I have now proved beyond any doubt that technically insolvent Verditek (VDTK) has misled investors grotesquely during five separate fund raises. If AIM Regulation was not staffed by such poltroons the shares would already be suspended. They may still be. So what does that say for the integrity of the man at the helm, the chairman Tory Toff Lord David Willetts?
The National Trust has finally published its widely flagged report into which of the houses it has been bequeathed are tarnished by associations with slavery or the evil that is colonialism. My late grandfather, Sir John Winnifrith, will be – yet again – spinning in his grave. The report is a predictably dire and academically flawed document but the sort of exercise in self-flagellation that has become compulsory for guilty white, Guardian reading, liberals in 2020. If the report itself was not bad enough the coverage of it by the BBC was excruciating and another reason why we must #defundthebbc. But we must now also #DefundtheNationalTrust.
OptiBiotix Health (OPTI) is “pleased to announce… an exclusive distribution agreement with Ayalla Marketing for the distribution of its cholesterol reducing probiotic, LPLDL®, as an ingredient and as four finished products (CholBiome, CholBiomeX3, CholBiomeBP and CholBiomeVH) within the CholBiome® portfolio for Brazil”…
And so yet more measures are introduced with no scientific basis to destroy our economy and wreck our civil liberties by this wretched Government. And as the Tories revel in their role as the enemies of a free press and destroyers of liberty, there is a new game in town, idiotic populism.
I have today been quite busy on family matters, see HERE, which I find fascinating. I appreciate others may not! In the podcast I look at the general market meldown in the face of the Government going economy wrecking bonkers over Covid. I look at [email protected] Capital (SYME) and Avant Garde, Verditek (VDTK) and its idiot investors, Big Dish (DISH), Trainline (TRN), Bidstack (BIDS) FinnCap (FCAP) and a cracking trading statement but questionable morals and Iconic (ICON) and the perils of the sub Standard List.
There is no empirical evidence for the raft of civil liberties crushing and economy wrecking measures Boris Johnston announced yesterday but still folks want more. A YouGov poll showed 13% of us thought Boris had gone too far, 32% thought he had it about right but 45% wanted more restrictions, saying that the most illiberal Government in modern British Government had not gone far enough. Cripes, as Boris might say. Why am I not surprised?
Notwithstanding a £4.2 million placing at 0.2p back in June, UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) is now running on vapours. The question is not if it will do another bailout placing but when? And “news”, I use the term in the loosest possible sense, today suggests that Lyin’ Steve Sanderson et al are preparing to pass the hat around, yet again, very soon. There are already 10.97 billion shares in issue but brace yourself for another tsunami of worthless confetti to be arriving shortly.
If you thought Simon Hoare was a one-off liberty hating halfwit within the Tory party think again. It seems par for the course. Meet Councillor Fran Carpenter.
Boy how the Bulletin Board Morons were creaming themselves this morning on this news. Shares in the [email protected] Capital (SYME) scam surged to 0.75p although, as I write, they are back at 0.625p. They are still top of the leader board and 30% ahead on the day and this has happened on the basis of an announcement that is just shear fantasy.
Maude Winnifrith was born in 1875 and was my great grandmother. Her children included my grandfather, Sir John Winnifrith and the actress Anna Lee – once known as the British Bombshell. But who was Maude? The mystery has intrigued the family for decades and this week I hope to solve it once and for all with the assistance of a retired vicar in Oxfordshire, my father and two DNA tests.
