James Parter revealed some quite disgraceful ramping of shares in Tangiers Petroleum (TPET) yesterday. His analysis was superb and shows why an Australian website was publishing plain untruths about this dual listed company. I suggest reading his article here.

But even by the standards of the AIM Cesspit, surely there comes a point where one says “enough is enough.”
