Photo Article: storm clouds over the Greek Hovel

Just in case you think that I am suffering in 33 degree heat every day...

The clouds gathered yesterday afternoon over the Taygetos mountains behind me. I was hoping for a deluge. My olive trees would love it and there is something truly comforting about sitting inside your nice warm, dry hovel as the rain lashed down outside. Besides which it would have cooled the air making sleep that much easier at night. So what if the mud track to Kambos would become like the Somme? I have navigated it before in such a state.

In the end the rainfall was short and modest. The rain was warm, I'm sure my trees were grateful but it did not exactly live up to its billing as storms go.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Boohoo.com, Baillie Gifford, slave labour & Leicester

I start with a few words on the end of lockdown for those of us living within 5 miles of England. Then I look at the growing scandal involving Boohoo.com (BOO), and its suppliers using slave labour in, Leicester, spreading disease and treating workers like, well, slaves. It is a scandal. But who will Baillie Gifford which wanks for Britain on virtue signalling ethical investing (see HERE) react as it is a major Boohoo backer? Now Matt Earl’s words about bumper margins at Boohoo, in my second video show HERE,  seem even more prescient.  PS remember to book your seats for MineProphets on July 18 HERE.
