A surprise call from lovely Eleni – what on earth am I doing in cold Wales?

Well that made my day. Lovely Eleni from the Kourounis taverna in Kambos called to wish my family a Merry Christmas and to say thank you for the books for her two kids which arrived today. I am not sure what her son will make of Tin Tin but if it helps his English a bit all is good. Eleni asks how I am? Cold say I.


For it is terribly cold in Wales. Both outside and inside the welsh Hovel. Though I have our new radiators on full blast there are none in the dining room where I now sit and the floors man has just been to polish the tiles that lead to the rest of the house. I am thus trapped and so have been to my woodshed to saw logs and start a fire. But it is still freezing.


Actually beyond the tiles it is not much better. The now exposed giant fireplaces suck whatever heat the radiators generate straight out of the room. I have ordered some “chimney cushions” to stop this but they are yet to arrive. So, I am cold.


Eleni says that in Kambos and up at the Greek Hovel it is more than 20 degrees. Why, I wonder not for the first time, am I in Wales not Greece?

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.
