Come and arrest me at my father’s graveside you sad little people with Orwellian fantasies

Today an email arrives from sister T about my father’s funeral on Thursday. It generates a strong but measured response to all attendees from me. Were we 30 who were attending the funeral to head off afterwards to a grouse shoot that would be legal. Were we to head to the White Bear and book five tables in a crowded back room and sit there mask free that would be fine and dandy. But if we go on from the church to bury my father in the same plot as my late step-mother, in an open field, right on the edge of Shipston, there is a problem.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The £15m going to David Beckham from the Guild Esports IPO

I start with a few notes on  preparations for Thursday’s funeral following my piece on mad Covid rules and Dad’s ceremony HERE. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) and Versarien (VRS) where the wheels realy are coming off. Then it is onto a defence of my friend Tim Blackstone and my analysis of Metals Exploration (MTL). Finally I look, in real detail (hence the length of this podcast), at Guild Esports (GILD) which was much hy;ped by the deadwood press at its IPO a few weeks ago partly because David Beckham was investing in it. I expose why that is so utterly misleading, Becks will make a killing from this IPO but I suggest mug punters will not. This whole thing stinks.

Randeep Grewal of suspended G3 Exploration again shown to be a proven liar - prepare for wipeout

Randeep Gewal of G3 Exploration (G3E), formerly Green Dragon Gas, being shown as a liar comes as about as much of a surprise to me as the sun coming up in the morning.  An insolvent company run by a liar, what is not to like? You cannot say I have not been warning folks for years ( seven!)

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel - the new farmhouse kitchen starts to take shape, I treat myself with a 4 stove Aga

Slowly slowly things are taking shape in what will be a kitchen dining room. First up, the Aga has arrived and I have treated myself to a four oven model as you can see below.  The tiles are still discoloured from the work done removing years of dirt from the walls and black paint from the beams but are slowly being cleaned, one treatment at a time.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Bedwetting brokers do protest too much & I do not see why my taxes should fund executive greed at ADVFN

In today’s podcast I start with PrimaryBid and the way brokers are crying foul on the London Stock Exchange backing it financially. Then onto, quite good, H2 numbers from ADVFN (AFN) but my real disquiet at the way my taxes are going on supporting the lifestyle of an overpaid board.

A border joke for bonkers Mark Drakeford the gauleiter of Wales

That our First Minister here in Wales has gone completely mad is now beyond doubt.  But as with so many little and irrelevant men who suddenly feel a surge of excitement coursing through their veins as they whiff a vague scent of power, Drakeford’s other dominant characteristic is a complete absence of any sense of humour. In that vein, I have a joke for him which starts in a place like where I live, right on the border with the accursed English infidels.

Mark Drakeford you insane little man – this is why I had to break your asinine rules for Wales twice this morning

Clinically insane sufferer from little man syndrome, Mark Drakeford, rules a land now into its third day of house arrest. Its third day when shops are not able to sell what are deemed non-essential items such as clothes for my four year old and also for another baby due shortly. Or a card to send to someone suffering a bereavement. Or, a computer.  Today my laptop broke down..

Two matters of great interest to PrimaryBid followers

I am a fan of PrimaryBid. It allows ordinary punters like you and I to take part in placings hitherto reserved for City insiders. So everyone should sign up HERE. But there are two pieces of news today.

Photo Article: Go woke go broke with LGBT Skittles

I am not suggesting that Mars, the owner of the Skittles brand of sweets, is going bust. But I wonder if the woke millenials in its UK marketing department have covered themselves in glory this year.
