Video: Laurence Fox, The Distance - will the Mrs dare admit to her friends?

For me Laurence Fox will always be Hathaway in Lewis and as he was an actor I assumed he was a virtue signalling lefty git like the rest of his profession. Last week’s Question Time therefore startled me as Fox emerged as a true hero of the thinking libertarian right taking on the woke battalions. He even dared to call out as racist some daft professor of Ethnicity from the joke institution that is Liverpool Edge Hill University as she essentially said that as a white man Fox was inherently racist so could not challeng her assertion that folks were only nasty to Princess Meghan as she is a woman of colour.

EXPOSE: Why has disgraced Sarah Cope again opted for a worse deal which costs Anglo African investors cash

What is it with disgraced Ms Sarah Cope of Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) when she is faced with two deals for her shareholders she always goes for the worse option. Today’s news of a refinancing of the Riverfort funding facility is a case in point. It appears to be a shocking breach of fiduciary duty.

The Bulletin Board Moron of the week winner is surely ADVFN's paedo guy?

You supplied numerous good entries in last week’s contest as you can see HERE. I particularly liked the Cloudtag (CTAG) morons, the triumph of hope over experience, spotted by Warren Boofit

EXCLUSIVE: Versarien – even management or the auditors no longer believe a substantial growth in Graphene sales is credible in the near future

The annual report does not lie. It is just a shame that the Bulletin board savants do not read them carefully. Like all companies, Versarien (VRS) is required to carry out an annual impairment test to justify the carrying value of goodwill recorded on the balance sheet which is £4,431,000 and comprised the following:

EXPLOSIVE: Brian Basham quits ADVFN but why is the company not telling you why?

Shareholders have a right to know exactly why the Fleet Street legend Brian Basham quite as a Non Executive director of ADVFN (AFN) on Friday but despite Basham ensuring that Nomad Roland “fatty” Cornish was kept in the loop, ADVFN has refused to come clean. Luckily, thanks to Winnileaks, I have BOTH resignation letter sent by Basham and what they say is utterly shocking.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: TW is a fecking idiot it is all about the future, historics do not matter

I clarify my share purchase ion Otibiotix (OPT). I discuss the revelations yesterday about the breakdown of historic income at Versarien (VRS) explaining, to BBMs who claim it does not, exactly why it does matter! Then I discuss whether Terry Smith’s golden run is about to break badly for him. Do not get me wrong, I think Smith is an absolute top banana but I have a doubt or two.

Terry Smith slates Neil Woodford & Hargreaves

Terry Smith’s funds were not recommended to its clients by Hargreaves Lansdown (HL). Those of Neil Woodford were. Of course, that was noting to do with the fees Hargreaves received from the two forms. No, not at all. In his annual newsletter the great Smith has slated Woodford. There is nothing that should surprise ShareProphets readers but it is all good stuff. Smith opines:

I am 100% convinced that I saw a wallaby near Whitchurch in Shropshire tonight

It was very late, nearly eleven at night, and very dark but a large mammal was moving off the  badly lit road ahead of me to my right and off into the fields. I was two or three miles outside Whitchurch in Shropshire, heading back to the Welsh Hovel and I swear that the animal was bouncing along like a Kangaroo or Wallaby. I am convinced that it was the latter.

EXPOSE: Versarien – are graphene sales just a nano amount of group turnover? The hard and shocking data revealed

Uber ramp Versarien (VRS) refuses adamantly to break out how much of its business is actually involved in graphene. It is the graphene hype which explains why the shares are at 79.5p valuing the company at £122 million. The legacy non graphene activities may generate real sales but will never be material cash cows and thus are fundamentally almost worthless. So how much does Versarien actually make from graphene?
