Parsons Green - thank heavens for the Barcelona March, the Manchester concert and the candles lit across Europe.

Of course we must not jump to conclusions. That is the preserve of fake news liberal media outlets like the BBC, Channel 4, CNN and The Guardian as they report about racist Donald Trump supporters berating a poor Muslim woman in New York - or not as it turned out. So let us make no assumptions of guilt although if we had to place bet, there would be one grouping that was an odds on favourite.

No doubt London's hapless Mayor Khan has taken time off from tweeting about the real enemy of world peace (Donald Trump) to say that we are all united and that this latest attack will not change us as that would be to admit defeat. After all, that was the message on the futile Barcelona march after the attack there - we are not scared, no to Islamophobia, we will carry on as before. And the same in Manchester at the pop concert. And across Europe in City after City as they lit candles.

For the dozens injured today they have changed. Lots of us are bloody terrified. And I feel no sense of unity with those who just want to light more fucking candles, who cannot accept that Islamophobia, though wrong, has not blown up civilians across Europe this year and is not the real threat to our lives and who do not want anything to change.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why Bidstack now needs a formal (lack of) profits warning and could it run out of cash in Q1 2020

Of course I only record this because I am in the pay of the Israeli and Russian Governments. Whatever. I start with the pathetic deadwood press and how Richard Jennings blows them off to his shame and my disgust. But this podcast is really all about Bidstack (BIDS). Its CEO lied to investors on August 8 as explain with more detail this time. Ther case is open and shut. Now the company needs to issue a formal lack of profits warning. Again that is not a matter poof debate as I explain, in case wretched Nomad Mark Brady of Spark is listening and wants to avoid getting into even more trouble after his August 8 failure. Finally I ask how soon it will need to place again?
