The cat and I both visit the doctors, it is my bank balance left writhing in agony

I was first up and my encounter was scheduled, it was my diabetes check up. When the Shipmans test your blood they obtain a three month average trailing score of blood sugars. So this chat was about bloods taken on March 4: two months of sobriety, healthy eating and exercise and one month of drinking and over indulgence during the olive harvest and then Christmas.  Yet my results were stunning, a 25% reduction in blood sugars, albeit from a terrible start. The nurse was full of praise and said how much thinner I was looking. I think she meant I looked less fat but the trend is my friend.

Photo Article: The pool opens at luxury and isolated Greek villa May 1 - now just eight weeks unbooked until November

Another day and another reservation arrives. That means that there are now just eight weeks unbooked this year between May 1, when the pool opens up, and November 2 when it shuts for the winter. A number of those renting are return visitors. If you fancy a holiday in the Greek countryside, two miles from the nearest house in a luxurious poolside villa, I can help you. The Eco palace we have restored over the past decade, in the Mani will be 100 years old this year and has, as you can see below, been completely renovated. The pool will be warm by May and will stay warm until late October so the smart holidaymaker still has five weeks of off peak bookings available and here are direct flights to Kalamata throughout that period. As of now there are still  three weeks unbooked in May, two weeks in June and a week free in both August and September with 12 days unbooked in October.

Mark Menzies: The Tory MP who “disputes” the Grindr blackmail misuse of funds reports – its like dealing with stockmarket villains

In my day job I deal with stockmarket villains. The narrative does not change when you expose a big scandal. I publish a report.  The company’s advisers, overpaid PR fluffies, put out a regulated announcement where they “refute” the allegations. And in due course I am vindicated and shares in that company collapse, sometimes to zero. It has happened so many times.

Another day and another Tory MP in a sex and corruption scandal – I think again of Christopher Booker of Private Eye and 1963

It was only a couple of weeks ago when the hapless Tory MP William Wragg was exposed for exposing himself on Grindr and then being blackmailed that I made reference to Uncle Chris, the late Christopher Booker HERE.  The image from Private Eye of the Court of SuperMac dressed as if for the fall of Rome, which hangs in the downstairs loo at The Old Rectory, is again in my mind. It is as if Tory MP’s get an automatic account with the gay dating app Grindr when they are elected. Again, another Private Eye joke springs to mind.

But being a cash consumptive company with no money whatsoever that was going to be hard. If you owe the bank £1 you are in trouble. If you owe the bank $8.4 million the banks, or in this case death spiral providers, are in the merde.

Canadian Overseas Petroleum: the definition of madness

A few weeks ago I went out for a few drinks with a couple of pals including “Chemtrails Dave” who has one or two odd views. I am prepared to accept that Michelle Obama is a man and that the Clinton crime family have all of their critics and whistleblowers suicided but after a couple of pints we got on to the 1969 moon landings and Chemtrails said “anyone who thinks they actually happened is mad.” But they did happen didn’t they? Said I. At which point he laughed. When I got home I asked “but the did happen didn’t they?” And I was reassured. Of course they did. And that brings us to Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) shares in which were up by 50% at one point this morning.

Video: The Fed Isn’t Done Breaking Things, keep buying gold

Lobo Tiggre, author and publisher of theindependentspeculator.com acknowledges that there were signs of a recession in various sectors in 2022, but low interest rates and labour hoarding prevented it from fully materializing. However, he believes that a recession will soon become undeniable, possibly in the first half of 2024, based on indicators such as the declining trend in job openings. Tiggre expects a softer landing for the economy only if indicators prove to be wrong and the overall health of the economy is stronger than believed.

It was as if Jesus had saved the disciples as the storm raged on the sea of Galilee where their boat was sailing (Mark 4, 3-41).  But the reality is that anyone who bought the shares when the great rescuer took over as CEO has now lost 99.8% of their money while Lofgran has made millions in remuneration. You have to pay for talent don’t you? Would it not have been better just to put the company into administration in 2009, to have avoided numerous bailout placings more good money going after bad?

Winnileaks EXCLUSIVE: Three Letters from the Canadian Overseas Shareholder Action Group to the FCA, advisors and the company

For all the bluster I am more and more convinced that the Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) Shareholder Action Group (SAG) are just a bunch of crybaby losers who cannot accept that they ignored numerous warnings from myself and others ( abusing me on social media for being wrong) about how bad the assets and management of Canadian were and how it would end in tears. The letter it has sent to the FCA is to a generic address. That is a sign that these losers are just scrabbling around. The failure of the SAG to understand how a death spiral works and what a breach of covenant means is another sign of how utterly clueless they are. Anyhow, thanks to Winnileaks, I have three emails sent in the past 14 days. 1 to the FCA, 2 to advisors and a third to the company. Enjoy.

Skarica also highlights that the bubbles in 2008 indicated that previous rate cut cycles did not immediately work, but this time, the economy has held up relatively well. He expresses the belief that this rate cut cycle will be different and that predictions of a significant market downturn may not necessarily come true.

To his credit, Dad saw the light and before he died canceled his monthly donation. But the organization goes from bad to worse and has now hit a new low with its eulogy for Walid Daqqah who it describes as a “writer” and as a “reminder of Israel’s cruel disregard for Palestinians’ right to life” in the tweet below.  It cannot be serious. But it is.

It was 11 years ago today that Britain's Greatest Leader passed away - a video tribute to Lady Thatcher

My friend Lucian Miers  and I drank English Champagne after standing for hours outside St Paul’s to pay our respects and watch the funeral of Margaret Thatcher on 17 April 2013.  We mourned as some freaks celebrated as I reported back with photos HERE. But it was even years ago today that Mrs thacher died. The video below is a reminder for younger viewers of what an amazing leader she was and of the pygmies who have led us ever since.

Letter to the FCA – why have you not suspended the FRAUD Regtech over the missing or not £1.4million?

The FCA is , no sniggering at the back, meant to regulate the Standard List of London’s Main Market. In August 2023 it approved the IFRS non compliant and grossly misleading prospectus of the fraud Regtech Open (RTOP). I have written it a note about the latest developments. Its failure to force a statement and/or suspend the shares is a disgrace.

Hydrogen Utopia and today’s stinking purchase of 49% of Ochrid Organics Ltd which can’t even file its accounts on time

Smoke and mirrors, dodgy related party deals involving Howard White, the near 70 year old “friend” of Hydrogen Utopia’s (HUA) thirty something CEO Aleksandra Binkowska, an inability to file accounts and sums that don’t add up. 2024 has started as 2023 ended for this Standard Listed dog. Today we are told that Hydrogen has exercised an option to buy 49% of Ochrid “to provide an income stream in 2024.” Well up to a point, Howard, old boy.

Another old friend lost? I am a “fascist” for not slating the Jews

He did not mind that 10 of them were British Jews or that 2 British Jews were taken into Gaza as hostages by the Hamas rapists. But today T has been in touch to slate me as being a “fascist” for supporting the Jewish State after the tragedy of Israel accidentally killing seven aid workers, three of whom were Brits.  A man with a history degree does not seem able to understand that in the context of real fascism that is just such an utterly offensive thing to say.  Our exchange follows and I just despair.

I start with the US elections and then as to what is happening and what will happen in the Ukraine war. On both counts the British media are lying to us all. Russia is winning but it is making ground so slowly and at such a cost that threats that it will be in Kiev, let along Poland,  if we do not hand over more cash and arms are just untrue. Meanwhile Trump is still a hot favourite to win.

Supreme Court votes 9 nil that Dems keeping Trump off the ballot is illegal, they are trying to cheat and steal the election

If, or should that be when, President Putin stops an opponent being on the ballot the world rightly cries foul.  The Iranians try the same trick and we are united in condemning this bastardisation of democracy. But in the USA Democrats are prepared to cheat to steal the biggest election of all. Who says so? The  Supreme Court said just that today.

Photo article: Luxury Greek villa with pool in isolated mountains of Paddy Leigh Fermor's Mani: now largely booked out for 2024

If you fancy a holiday in the Greek countryside, two miles from the nearest house in a luxurious poolside villa, I can help you. The Eco palace we have restored over the past decade, in the Mani will be 100 years old this year and has, as you can see below, been completely renovated. The pool will be warm by May and will stay warm until late October so the smart holidaymaker still has six weeks of off peak bookings available and here are direct flights to Kalamata throughout that period. As of now there are still vacancies in May, two weeks in June and a week free in both August and September with 12 days unbookedin October.

Nikki Haley gets 1200 votes in the swamp and the Trump hating BBC wets its collective knickers & ignores the facts

Nikki Haley has won a primary contest, the first woman ever to win a Republican Primary. The BBC, where all reporters suffer from acute #TrumpDerangementSyndrome, had a collective knicker wet and pondered whether this meant the Donald Trump bandwagon was off the rails.  Fear not. It is not. The BBC, as you might expect, ignore little things called facts.

As you’d expect with a Monk client and a company controlled by Dominic White of the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud infamy, the numbers are a joke and riddled with schoolboy errors.

Almost two years later the Ukrainians have lost nearly all of the meagre gains they made in the much vaunted 2023 “counter offensive.” And on all fronts Russia is now advancing, taking out the“fortresses” Bakhmut and Avdiivka and village after village across the line.  The gains are measured in hundreds of metres a day in each area where fighting is underway. They are not huge on a daily basis and each day sees body bags shipped home to both Kiev and to Moscow on a horrible scale. But Stevie Wonder can see that it is Russia that is advancing.  However…

He suggests that Jerome Powell may raise interest rates further to slow inflation, but this could make it unaffordable for millennials to buy homes.

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel: Joshua and I produce Bara Brith

For St. David’s Day, the Pest, aka my son Joshua, has a choice of three Welsh tasks for a school contest. No sheep jokes, he is only seven. And fear not, any English person owning a second home in the village won’t be “coming home to a real fire” though Joshua is a fierce nationalist.  That reminds me, it is Ireland vs Wales on Saturday which we will be watching with an Irish family though the Mrs says she will join the kids in rooting for Wales. Traitor.  Back to the contest: the task we have chosen is making Bara Brith, a Welsh sort of fruit cake.

MusicMagpie – bid approaches or an admission of debt crisis?

It states that it is in “early-stage discussions with both BT Group plc and Aurelius Group as to a possible offer to acquire the entire issued and to be issued share capital of musicMagpie.” So what is really happening?

Its revenues remain almost zero and its cost base had been slashed to c£3 million. However, the company then did a quasi related party share purchase of King Tide which wants to cultivate seaweed to capture carbon and save the planet. We were promised that this company would have its first revenues by Christmas but there is no sign of that so instead it is adding to the cashburn. Come on you can do the maths….

BREAKING: Helios Underwriting – more evidence of why its shares should be suspended

In my recent article “BREAKING: Helios Underwriting – why its AIM shares should be suspended NOW after howling schoolboy accounting blunder” I explained why Helios (HUW), which underwrites insurance at Lloyd’s of London, had a major issue. The issue was that it had prepared its accounts for the six months ended 30 June 2023 under UK GAAP as opposed to IFRS as required by the AIM listing rule paragraph 19. Helios explained the reasons for this as follows:

Folks will call me sexist for saying this but Sosandar’s joint CEO Julie Lavington sounds very, very silly

Ms. Lavington is quoted in the ghastly Mail on Sunday as saying “Our share price is the same as when we turned over £1 million – except now we’re turning over £40 million. It’s frustrating.”. Where to start? It must be rather worrying for those still owning these shares that she has such an appalling grasp of how markets work. It is enough to turn a man to drink.

Walking round my trees at the Welsh Hovel after another night of fierce wind

Gosh how the wind howled last night. It seems to rush down the lane to the Welsh Hovel and the first bedroom it heads past is the one where the Mrs and I sleep, when not being disturbed by one of the cats sheltering from the storm. Maybe we hear it a bit more loudly than others as there is part of the end wall in out bedroom which is a bricked up window tax window and so the wall is thin at that point.

Letter to AIM Regulation: Force Nightcap & Sarah Willingham to Fess to the grim news as per Rule 11

Shares in Nightcap (NGHT) the bars chain being run into the ground by Dragon’s Den star Sarah Willingham are sliding again to a new all time low of just 5.75p. Almost certainly the company’s trading so far this financial year (starting July 3) has been below forecast and so in not ‘fessing to that I believe it has breached AIM Rules 10 and 11. I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, demanding that they force a ‘fess up RNS.

I first published a red flag dossier on MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC) when the shares were 2.25p on 11 January 2022. The last time I wrote they were 0.055p on September 26 2023 as the company announced a bailout placing and 1000 for 1 share consolidation. That consolidation kicked in today and, ceteris paribus the shares should have been 55p. But instead, having risen since September, they have collapsed by 75% to just 15p.

Yes, let’s not show any sympathy for the Jews and talk about Srebrenica instead.  To be fair Brighton Council has now apologised. But it has not disciplined the person responsible. Words are cheap. The tweet was sent with intent and whoever sent it should be fired. Actions are what count. Over in the Socialist hell hole that is Canada, the top politician in British Columbia went further.

Vast Resources – Piss poor results and piss poor mine update

It is only 18 months since Vast Resources (VAST) did a 100 for 1 share consolidation telling its thick as pigshit shareholders that this was to allow it to pay dividends. Of course, there was zero chance of that it was all about being able to issue more shares at above par. Since that consolidation which took the shares from 0.1p to 10p the shares have fallen by 98.5% to just 0.155p. And prior to that consolidation the shares had already fallen by more than 99% since IPO. This is a company that funds a gravy train for managers and advisers and screws shareholders. Today there is more bad news.

EXPOSE: The curse of Nilesh Jagatia strikes again: Limitless Earth serves up piss poor, wholly misleading, and non IFRS compliant results

The curse of AIM’s worst FD, Nilesh Jagatia strikes again. Limitless Earth (LME) has published its interim results for the six-months ended 31 July 2023 which showed a loss of £110,337. Net assets increased marginally as Limitless raised a net £151,900 via a placing, to £1,133,198 which more than offset loss for the period. The punters who paid 5p in the July 2023 placing can’t be happy with the current bid price of 2p. But anyone investing in a Nilesh company is obviously a financial masochist.

Upland Resources and the supposed bid – is it this SEC Capital? If so it's 'avin' a Turkish

I am more and more convinced that the 14p a share supposed bid for Upland Resources (UPL) is a complete spoof which is why bears should add to their shorts at 5.75p as I explained ( at 6.25p) HERE. When the spoof unravels the share price will collapse liked a failed souffle. Anyhow the bidder is meant to be SEC Capital. I have tracked down the one incorporated SEC Capital…

Oh dear, the last time that Elrico/Lemming Investor commented on my analysis was when I said sell Optibiotix (OPTI) at 132p.

Now it seems that I don’t understand Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) – where my target is 150p – unlike the great expert who opines on a BB:

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel for the Doom Goblin: It is THAT day again

Despite claims that 2023 was the hottest year on record, using spectacularly bodged data, the arctic sea ice seems to be rather off message: it is now at its highest level for 21 years. Oddly the BBC’s various global warming correspondents have yet to take a private jet to report on that. Perhaps they are all at Davos with Greta Thunberg. Meanwhile closer to home I bring you two pictures that greeted my family at the Welsh hovel this morning, yes that is global warming you see in the farmyard and on the road up to the village.

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel, preparing for an icy week with my Birthday present to myself

I now feel a bit of a wuss writing this as my pal Darren sends photos of the snow in Canada outside his rural retreat where it is minus 17 degrees. I am not sure if it will snow here in North Wales next week. My kids hope it does and so do I as if there is even a light dusting of global warming, the Marxist Madrassa where the Mrs works will shut down and we will enjoy her company all week. But I do know that it will be cold by Welsh standards and that an alternative to switching on all our hugely expensive gas radiators is to run a fire in the main living room where folks can snuggle up and watch mid rot on the telly.. And that brings me to my birthday present to myself, in the first photo below, a heavy splitting axe.

Upland Resources "bid approach": a clear fraud, a spoof or perhaps just real insanity?

On Friday afternoon and throughout the weekend folks from the Upland Resources (UPL) ramping community, a group almost as pointless as Queers for Palestine, were tweeting that Upland had received a 14p bid approach but was going to reject it as being too low. This morning Upland said that as a result of speculation it was forced to confirm this was all true. That the shares are just 6.25p tells you Mr. Market smells a rat. The FCA and the Takeover panel should be all over this and shorters should be adding to their short as fast as possible.

Video: Gold Will Soar Once Investors Realize Inflation is Beyond The Feds Control

Asset Manager Adrian Day, CEO of Adrian Day Asset Management is terribly bearish on the current state of the economy and investor expectations. Day believes that the effects of the Fed’s aggressive rate hikes in January 2020 will soon be felt, but he does not predict a market crash. However, there is a tug of war in place and valuations are high, primarily due to a handful of stocks.

There was a brief break in the weather here in North Wales yesterday. That is to say it was only raining steadily rather than pissing it down. And thus we took our house guest, a keen believer in the bogus religion of man made global warming, up to Lake Vrynwy.  I have visited this place a number of times since the summer of 2022 when a lack of summer frain saw the emergence from the shallows of Welsh villages drowned by the English infidels to create the reservoir. Ignoring a stack of facts the cultists in the MSM predicted this would happen with increasing frequency thanks to global warming, or climate change as it is known when things get cold.

There seems no end to the lunacy of those who seek to rewrite history. Over in Cambridge, a minor, provincial university somewhere near East Anglia, carol singers are told that when singing the First Noel they must replace the line “Born is the King of Israel” with something about being born in Bethlehem. It is not how the carol was written, it does not rhyme but at least it might not offend some snowflake undergraduates. That the vast majority of us find this sort of thing intensely irritating is ignored. And then there is Jesus whose birthday we will celebrate in less than two weeks: apparently he was a Palestinian.

Asset manager and author Michael Gayed says that there is overconfidence amongst investors that the economy will avoid a recession, despite increasing default risks. Additionally, most believe that stocks will continue to outperform, even though the charts are not indicative of a new bull market.

Cellular Goods – Is the Fat lady booking a Christmas gig? Any news on the seaweed joke?

Lenigas wants to do Lonrho again - has the man got no shame?

This is not the Tiny Rowlands “unacceptable face of capitalism” Lonrho but a latter version controlled by Lenigas from 2006 and sold to some Swiss chaps in 2013 for 2.9 billion Rand. What follows shows Lenigas has no shame.

Andrew Monk’s latest disgrace: Cook’s Coffee subsidiary Triple Two going bust

Now I really am ashamed to be the unwitting owner of £120 worth of shares in VSA Capital (Very Sexy Andrew), the broker and financial adviser run by egomaniac Andrew Monk, a man – as he mentions daily – educated at Oriel College Oxford. In November of last year VSA racked up a big corporate fee getting an Aquis dual listing for New Zealand listed coffee chain Cooks Coffee (COOK). Cook’s was – as I showed here – insolvent at the time and VSA’s forecasts to get the IPO away were a disgrace.

Maybe what grabs you are the windows either side of the tree. If you look closely you will see that the ones on the right are bricked up and painted. These are an unusual sort of “wndow tax window”. Because this part of the house was the side folks saw as they took their milk down to the river to be shipped to Chester, this was the part “dolled up.” I could not unbrick the windows if I wanted as they are one of the reasosn that the hovel is listed. But I rather like them. In between the windows is a Christmas treat I picked up today. It is the annual “victim.”

This is laughable.  The conclusion of a report out today on deaths during the great plague of 1348-50, aka the Black Death, in London is that  “higher death rates amongst people of colour and those of black African descent was a result of the “devastating effects” of “premodern structural racism” in the medieval world. Natch the BBC is delighted by this study from the Museum of London. But does the data actually support such a claim? What do you think?

AIM Awards shortlist out – more nauseating self indulgence, but perhaps it tells us where value lies

As David Lenigas so rightly pointed out the other day, AIM is not the world’s most successful growth market, as it claims, it is dying on its feet. It is on track to suffer its worst year in history in terms of fundraisings, investors are set for another year of negative returns and the number of companies is shrinking rapidly to more than 20 year lows. Yet the fat cats, the crony capitalists who have grown rich are preparing for a black tie feast of back slapping and self indulgence, where tickets costing hundreds of pounds and vast drinks bills are ultimately pad for by you, investors. The AIM Awards shortlists are out. It is nauseating.>You pay for the 12 October bean feast as you are shareholders in companies which pay vast fees to Nomads, brokers,, PR fluffies, lawyers and accountants and it is they who are paying thousands of pounds to book tables at this event. It is YOUR money being spaffed. Given how badly AIM has performed this year those firms booking tables should be utterly ashamed. Anyhow, the shortlists are out as you can see below.

Regtech Open – more horrible omissions in prospectus that the FCA somehow approved

The Metropolitan Police has now stated that using the imagery endorsed by Mabon is something it considers to be a crime. And thus, cc’ing in hapless press officer Vicky Tyrell, I have asked the office of the Vice Chancellor, two critical questions.

Regular readers should also know that I think that Gary Lineker is a twit and worse, a man who made £5 million from promoting the Ingenie/Quindell fraud which I exposed.

Mabon is a disgrace but so too is Lancaster University which, I can now reveal, has exonerated him, covered up his crime and so made it clear that Jewish students at Lancaster can now be taunted and menaced without repercussion.

Yup, you guessed it, like the IRA Sinn Fein Capo, Mary Lou McDonald, Avaaz uses a picture of two Peruvian children taken in Peru to make the point. After that lie…

If you think that you think like the folks on the Palestine marches every weekend just look at this tweet

It seems that Britain’s marches for Palestine where folks are allowed to shout about Jihad, killing Jews and the Police say that thereare many way of interpreting Jihad and killing Jews and that this is not a hate crime are now a weekly occurrence, to take place every Saturday. And that means there is already talk of an especially big march on Saturday 11th November, one that will almost certainly pass by the Cenotaph. I suspect you and I know what that means.

Another fake image from IRA Sinn Fein in support of Hamas - this time its Mary Lou McDonald

It now appears that the image that evil blood soaked old bastard Gerry Adams begging, and you could not make it up, to an end to bombing in Gaza, this one, was photoshopped. You would have thought that Adams had plenty of photos in his professional accomplishments scrap albulm of bomb carnage in Northern Ireland to use but he used a made up one. Mary Lou McDonald the head of Sinn Fein/IRA in Eire also wants an immediate ceasefire, or put anther way Israel not being allowed to take out the folks responsible for the 7 October pogrom, meaning that they wil be free to slaughter more Jews.

Don’t get me wrong I don’t like Hamas but I’m going to smear you and cancel my subscription!

This website is free to access, it is just a hobby started as therapy at a low point in my life almost 12 years ago. You can donate to support its work by hitting the button on the top right hand corner of the website if you wish but if you don’t it matters little, the website remains free to access and over the years almost 3.5 million times someone has read an article here. Its work in recent weeks is largely writing about the aftermath of the biggest mass killing of Jews since World War Two. I earn my living by running Shareprophets.com a website which exposes fraud and other stock market wrongdoing and which charges a very reasonable small subscription. My coverage of the pogrom has seen a raft of folks cancel their subscription at Shareprophets.com and here is an email from one charmer explaining why.

BBC darling Ash Sarkar has to tell an outright lie to smear Israel yet again

In the tweet below Ash insists that former Israeli ambassador Dan Gillerman says that Palestinians are“inhuman human animals.” Now watch the video which Ash attaches and you will see that this is not what he actually said at all.

Gaza and the “fuel shortage” – another myth from Hamas PR and the Western media dupes: it’s not about hospitals its about the tunnels

The UN, the hand wringing NGOs and, naturally, the western media led by the BBC and the Guardian tells us that there is a critical fuel shortage in Gaza which will see hospitals shut down. The evil Jews are even closing down the hospitals and the blockade must be stopped to save lives! The gullible idiots who march in the Hamas victory parades in western Cities each weekend repeat this canard. But it is a lie. Have you seen the film the Great Escape?

17 days after the worst one day mass slaughter of Jews since World War Two   the Guardian ran the headline below accusing Israel of weaponising the holocaust. Words just fail me. The Guardian is weaponising the anti-semitism that is marching through the ranks of its core public sector and academic readership.  Folks like the University of Lancaster which, despite promising a Monday response, has still not responded to my Saturday questions abut Professor Simon Mabon celebrating the Hamas butchers of 7 October.  No doubt at Lancaster University they loved the article below. Any decent reader of the Guardian, such as my wife,will surely now boycott it for life.

I have never, for the record, watched GBNews. I rather dislike too many of its presenters who seem to revel as a low grade version of Fox. And some of them are frankly just plain stupid. But I note that it is regularly slammed by Ofcom for lack of balance. In that vein I bring you a twitter thread by the excellent David Collier covering a report by Sadiya Chowdhury covering a report on Sky News. Please read the thread and then ask yourself how, if Ofcom is itself balanced, can it not slate Sky for this garbage. as for Sky how on earth can it emplooy this fanatic and be taken seriously?

The River Dee which flows at the edge of my fields is meant to be a clean home to salmon and trout. Its banks should be home to a range of wildlife including Kingfishers, I saw one a few weeks ago, and a rare sort of dragonfly. My, now water-logged, fields are home to frogs, toads, snakes, aquatic birdlife and much more. This morning, as you can see below, there is a large compostable toilet stuck on the English side of the river, leaking shit.  The story of that loo and its shit is one which leaves me in despair at a broken Britain with a Police and local council ( Chester and Cheshire West) who are not underfunded but are just useless, protecting those who break the law and telling we honest taxpayers to go fuck ourselves.

Actually I think the river was higher last February but the NRW website is just wrong.  But as you can see below the waters were high. The waters were in the farmyard, in our back garden about a yard from the steps, and if you left the farmyard and went into the fields the waters were everywhere.

That would be the Gaza which elected as its Government Hamas, an organisation that 11 days ago butchered 1400 Jews, literally finishing off the Nazis work in shooting a holocaust survivor in the back of the head, decapitating babies, burning families alive, raping and then cutting the throats of teenage girls in front of their families.

It also waived through the bogus Supply@ME Capital prospectus which overstated net assets by 99%. And this week there was Regtech Open (RTOP) with a non IFRS compliant balance sheet so materially overstating net assets, the dirty dozen investors and more. But Ashington Innovations (ASHI) will take the biscuit if the FCA approves the RTO prospectus. Emails were exchanged yesterday.

 My tomato harvest this year has not been great. Lots of plants were planted but I think that I need to start early growth under cloches next year. The bottom line is that we have had enough for some salads but not enough for canning. And the stacks of green tomatoes are generally too small to fry up and eat. Hence, as you can see below, I now have around eight pounds of green tomato chutney made with sultanas, apple vinegar, onions and brown sugar. It needs a bit of time to settle and store but the first pots should be ready for the Guy Fawkes night party where surely the guy on the bonfire has to be our dear leader here in Wales, Mark Drakeford or, possibly, the head of Oxfam.

BlueJay Mining – yet another placing, how long will this last?

This is wretched, tawdry and desperate all at the same time. BlueJay Mining (JAY) is all that is wrong with the AIM sewer. It has survived as long as it has because folks like hearing sweet lies and are happy to ignore red flags, seas of them, in the belief that this “get rich quick” scheme will be different. Do you remember the glory days?

The brazen fraud Tingo – a new disclaimer

Why anyone owns shares in the brazen fraud Tingo (US:TIO) masterminded by the Foreign Secretary’s cousin the serial villain Chris Cleverly defies belief. Those dumb enough to invest might care to consider an addendum to the risk factors at the bottom of the latest release, the one postponing Q2 numbers and SEC filings for a third time.

EXPLOSIVE DOSSIER: RegTech Open Project Plc - a £60m IPO CON from the Supply@ME stable the FCA thinks is fine and dandy

Yesterday the FCA approved the Prospectus for RegTech Open Project Plc (RTOP) so that it can list on the Standard List with a £60 million valuation, enriching Alessandro Zamboni of the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud to the tune of £21 million. This detailed dossier explains why the FCA should hang its head in shame. This is a disgrace and shows that the Standard List regulator is just not fit for purpose.

Digging into a dark family secret or not?

My Great Uncle died fighting against such chaps and three of the most important people in my life are Jewish who have very few relatives left in Europe because of what those Nazi fellows got up to. But, as I say, maybe I am just old fashioned. As the excerpt below shows a 98 year old man hot a standing ovation in the Canadian Parliament yesterday with President Zelensky also applauding.

The struck off dentist, the history of bogus deals and a valuation of £135 million for a company late with its filings and technically insolvent is surely just too much for the FCA to allow.

Royale Parks Administrators report - a damning indictment of ICG Longbow

When I first raised numerous red flags about ICG Longbow (LBOW) the major one was the carrying value of its exposure to Royale Parks Ltd. Natch it dismissed my report in a patronising RNS. Now Royale is in administration and what the Administrator has to say suggests that it was my red flags dossier rather than ICG’s dire rebuttal that was bang on the money. Enjoy.

NatWest’s £5m a year Alison Rose “resigned” with immediate effect – will she get a payoff?

Her position was untenable after she admitted – as I suggested was the case here – that she was the person who leaked to the BBC details of Nigel Farage’s bank account at Coutts and a claim that he was not targeted because of his political views. Many banking experts and media types have such Farage derangement syndrome that they defended Alison Rose the CEO of NatWest (NWG) the owner of Coutts. I disagree with Farage on much but what Rose and Coutts did was wrong. I could see the wood for the trees.

Today’s trading update from JD Wetherspoon (JDW)  is jolly upbeat with like for like sales surging and the company on track to meet FY forecasts.

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel: No idea about this tree disaster, but Christmas wood sorted

At the end of our garden there is a wooden fence. Behind that is the old orchard which is far longer than it is wide, 7 or 8 yards from the garden is the river. Alongside the apple trees is a giant weeping willow. Well, as you can see, it is a bit less massive now. I have now idea why two enormous boughs broke and I did not hear any great crash. Presumably the snoring of the Mrs drowned that out. Yesterday, the cats, kids and I inspected the damage. The good news is that my pal Robert was due here next week to take down “the snake barn”  and one last shed sited in the fields as we expand the orchard along the river. Robert is just the man to bring a chainsaw and deal with this. At a stroke the winter fuel for the wood burning stove is sorted without Joshua and I needing to do any sawing at all in the wood shed.

Bidstack – sack the board GM to go ahead but it looks doomed even though Bidstack admits rebels have a point

The real issue for Bidstack (BIDS) is that it is rapidly running out of cash and, with the shares at just 0.725p, giving a market cap of just £6.75 million it will be incredibly hard for the death spiral provider with whom it is talking to find enough liquidity to fund a material amount. So the company may well be brown bread by the Autumn anyway. As such, who steers it onto the rocks is irrelevant.
