From corporate piss artist to legendary actual artist - the fall and rise of Clem Chambers in pictures

Thanks to Yair Tauman, he is no longer able to draw a £300,000 salary and an even bigger expense account at ADVFN (AFN), so what now for Clem Chambrs? There was the hilarious attempt to stag the disastrous IPO of Lift Global Ventures, but a man needs more in life. So as you can see below Clem is now a celebrated artist with his work showing later this week in a “flash” exhibition in Paris. In case you are in Frogland I also bring you a couple of Clem’s masterpieces. They don’t float my boat but maybe you have a “different” taste?

Eurasia – suspension lifted, an insane twist but what did the Nomad REALLY say to the moron?

On Monday 16 May at 7.40 AM, shares in AIM listed Bulletin board darling Eurasia Mining (EUA) were temporarily suspended at just under 8p “pending an announcement.” At 6.18PM on Tuesday 17th  (today) came that announcement. Eurasia “confirms it has no material new developments to notify” and so trading will resume on Wednesday 18th. So the shares were suspended for two days for an announcement that nothing had changed. That is insane. It gets more insane.

Video: You Can’t Print More Commodities

30-year mining veteran, “Andy”, discusses how everything in markets comes down to supply and demand. Logistics, contracts, and shipping are all essential factors in trade. Markets are complex, and risk mitigation is important, especially with the fluctuating prices of commodities. Sometimes, margins are tight, and companies can easily lose money – particularly if they’re not hedged accordingly.

Eurasia Mining suspended - here is a new theory as to why

Yesterday at 7.40 AM, an RNS appeared saying that trading in shares in Eurasia Mining (EUA) had been “temporarily suspended pending an announcement.”  24 hours later we still have no news. Good news travels fast, etc, etc.  I considered possible reasons for the suspension HERE but, there is another possibility.

Photo article: training walk for Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks - agony as the cows attack

On June 11, myself and seven other rogue bloggers will walk the 34 miles from Winchester Cathedral to Woodlarks.

To encourage you to donate, let me tell you about the pain of yesterday and show you the reason: the cows, or bulls as they were advertised.

David Lenigas - yet another apology

I may have, in the past, suggested that Mr David Lenigas was a shameless spiv who promoted worthless penny shares via either dramatic exaggeration or, as in the case of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) even worse. I may have suggested that Big Dave talks out of his posterior and should be whipped out of town and sent back to his native Australia where the core DNA will make him feel right at home. If so, I apologise.

In today’s podcast, I cover Eurasia Mining (EUA), Made.com (MADE), Vast Resources (VAST) and Petropavlovsk (POG).

I promise never to mention the company again if its CEO, smug Sam Smith, donates £100,000 to rogue bloggers for Woodlarks. Of course, she won’t.

SHOCKING: Made.com – another disastrous 2021 IPO unravels – is anybody on the board not resigning?

It is only ten and a half months since online furniture seller Made.com (MADE) listed on the Main Market, raising £100million by issuing new shares at 200p while existing shareholders lobbed out a cheeky £90 million of stock onto gullible institutions. Today, after a dismal profits warning, the shares are just 56p to sell. Meanwhile another rat has left the sinking ship as it burns through its ill gotten IPO gains ever more rapidly.

UPDATED: Vast Resources repays 1 death spiral but buries news that it is taking out another death spiral – another spoof! And then Atlas weighs in - pure comedy

Vast Resources (VAST) is blessed with having the dumbest investors going.  They fell for the last spoof RNS which, in a just world, would see the issuers banned from the markets, and bid the (worthless) shares up to 2.4p. Today there is a new monster spoof and the shares are 56% up to 1.3p offering the bears another chance for a slam dunk free short.  The company says it has refinanced its Atlas death spiral leading the “marks” to assume that there is no more death spiral overhang. But buried at the bottom of the release is ????

No longer a hovel it is a luxury eco palace with a pool operational from early June until the end of September, a massive library and all mod cons.

Julie Meyer bashes the Queen, creates North Anglesey & abuses the Welsh, say she is infested with frogs (the French) - her most insane email yet: follow the ouzo

Still branding herself after the colour of her hair dye, the blonde, Julie “lingerie on expenses” Meyer is today again spamming her GPDR non-compliant mailing list trying to persuade folks to join her at her latest investment conference.  This email from the fugitive from a 6 month jail term here in the UK is her most insane yet. She insults the French, the Queen and invests a whole new island off Wales, North Anglesey. It is of course just Anglesey, or rather Yns Mon. Maybe she should visit the place as the North Wales Police are keen to have a word following her recent wasting of Police time.

More barking-mad spam from Julie "Lingerie on Expenses" Meyer, as she continues to flee justice and a 6 month jail term

Vast Resources, death spiral provider Atlas and Nomad Roland “Fatty Cornish” bring AIM into disrepute – letter to AIM Regulation

But investors were indeed deceived by Vast Resources (VAST), Atlas and Beaumont Cornish, which signed off on the May 3 release. The incident brings “the world’s most successful growth market” into disrepute, and I have written to Marcus Stuttard, the bogus Sheriff and head of the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation, urging him to investigate possible illegality and to censure all those involved.

Lift Global Ventures - did the UK’s top chartist, Zak Mir, predict this 2 week share price collapse?

Lift Global Ventures (LFT) – a cash shell that buys assets in the financial media world – was listed at 3p on 29 April, after a fundraise which brought in £1.73 million.

In the coming recession no hope if no moat

I suspect that very few investors and surprisingly few PLC directors have any idea what a recession looks like. For starters most folks in both camps are rich but in a recession, it is the poor or lower middle classes who get whacked hardest. That is especially so when it is an inflationary recession as those lower down the order tend to have the least ability to “play catch up” by forcing through pay rises. And secondly you have to be of a certain age to remember a savage inflationary recession as an adult – the last one was ended with some fairly painful medicine by the blessed Lady Thatcher forty years ago.

Some of those who know him say that Eenergy (EAAS) CEO Harvey Sinclair is arrogant and unpleasant.

Advisers to this green energy play might be asking how I can suggest that there have been two warnings and why a bailout placing is almost inevitable. Here goes.

Photo Article from the Greek Hovel - evidence of my law breaking

My fire lighting at the Greek Hovel ended on 16 April when my business partner, Nicho the Communist, came up for an inspection of our trees and told me that the burning season had ended two days previously. I was an accidental law breaker.

Petropavlovsk – even Stevie Wonder can see the writing on this wall

For Petropavlovsk (POG) – as I warned you all on March 4th, here – things go from bad to worse. Its banker and sole purchaser of gold, GazpromBank, is sanctioned by the UK, so the AIM-listed miner cannot generate any revenues, or even pay interest on its debts. Today, the banksters have thus stated that the company is in default and called in the loans.

David Williams of Avanti infamy strikes again with alleged revenue overstatement & far worse - WSJ has the scoop

You can never keep a good man down. And, as for an absolute rotter like David Williams – who pumped satellite firm, Avanti Communications (AVN), before selling millions of pounds worth of shares, paid himself regular seven-figure stipends and then ran the company into the ground – it seems as if lightning will strike twice.  We defied the notoriously litigious bombastic prick, and highlighted numerous Avanti concerns on this website, as you can see HERE.

Canadian Overseas – here is a lookalike funding that Stifel prepared earlier and look how it fared?

The idea of announcing a death spiral – while pretending it is not a death spiral – at the same time as a bailout placing, is odd. Who would want to buy into a placing, when you know that, at some point, a blizzard of confetti will be dumped?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Canadian Overseas, vindicated again

This has been the most stressful day in Greece for a long while; I really do need a holiday. I explain all.  Then I look at Sensyne (SENS); Chill Brands (FRAUD); Blue Star Capital (BLU) and an AGM shock that may trigger the collapse of the Bixby, Edwards, Frangos, Story and Peter Wall house of cards. Then it is onto Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL), where today’s placing vindicates me. I argue that a 20.75p share price is a compelling shorting opportunity on a risk-reward basis. Matthew and his dog will enjoy that section, as Arthur Millholland, the snake oil salesman at Canadian, really is talking shite in today’s release. I am so angry.

Comedian Lee Hurst nails shy Evie, the bleating millenial lesbian

I seem to remember that, for some frightful faux pas, the comedian, Lee Hurst, has been no-platformed from various venues. His real problem is that he is not only funny, but also rather right-wing, which are the two reasons why you never see him on TV or hear him on what Radio 4 calls, in a blatant breach of the trade description laws, comedy shows. Yesterday, Mr Hurst utterly nailed a woman called Evie, gender she/they, a keen mask-wearer and a lesbian.

Greece – still lockdown loving covidiots

Greece was often praised for its authoritarian approach to the scamdemic.  You may remember the Guardian and BBC claiming that, while our evil government committed genocide by negligence, Greece’s draconian lockdown had cured the country of covid. Of course, it did not.  The lockdown gave the economy another good kick but, as the table shows, Greece has fared relatively badly in terms of covid deaths.

Canadian Overseas Petroleum Responds with hilarous & libellous smears about Tom Winnifrith and more deception of its sap investors

This is hilarious and libellous. What Canadian (COPL) has said about me in its RNS in response to THIS is untrue and defamatory as its limp dick advisors at morally bankrupt PR Yellow Jersey know full well. However it is what Canadian fails ( again) to say about itself that is critical. It is still deceiving its investors massively and thus the smart money will be using the spike it has created to add to their shorts.


Let’s start with the smear on me. Arthur Millholland (of Oilexco infamy) says

BREAKING: As OneTrue View's sister fraud Appbox goes bust, a £5.4m lie is told under oath

Appbox Media is the sister company of One True View and has stolen around £15 million of investors money with the FCA standing idly by ignoring this massive boiler room scam in the heart of the City.  But while One True View is reinventing itself to steal more cash as revealed yesterday HERE, Appbox has filed for insolvency. But patsy director Amanda Hussey, the rather simple “fall guy” for the mastermind of this £50 million bezzle Polat Hassan, has now told a £5.4 million lie under oath. She urgently needs to get legal advice before Polat lands her in even more trouble than she is already in.

A major article for the Transparency Task Force Woodford session to discuss today – its from the FT!

As you know I got disinvited from speaking at the TTF symposium taking place today which aims to discover what went wrong with Neil Woodford and how to stop it happening again. As the one journalist who did expose Woodford from 2015 onwards, one point I wanted to make was that the corruption of the deadwood press as an enabler of fraud was an issue but that was going to make the chap from the FT a bit cross.  So here below, is an article from the FT in December 2017 for the establishment arse lickers at the TTF to consider. You will see it is branded as among “FT’s personal finance highlights of 2017.”

What war does the Guardian think started 40 years ago this weekend?

Of course, you and I know the answer.  Forty years ago, at the instigation of a fascist military dictatorship, the Argies invaded a group of Islands that had never been under the control of their country, and where the folks all wanted to be British. That was the start of the Falklands war, where Lady Thatcher led Britain to victory. Frankly, they should be erecting statues of the blessed Margaret in Argentina, as that defeat led to the demise of the fascist military dictatorship.

Cathie Wood - the new Neil Woodford

Of course certain folks* do not want to learn all the lessons of Woodford so that it never happens again as that might threaten the grievance industry gravy train on which they ride.  One lesson is that the press only start calling out bad actors in financial services when it is too late. Before then, they promote the bad actors for the mainstream media are bad actors themselves.  The next Neil Woodford, as Lucian myself and others have noted for a while, is Cathie Wood of ARK whose funds share a lot of the failings that caused Woodford to blow up and whose arrogance matches that of the disgraced Neil. But for years the deadwood press blew smoke up Cathie’s posterior just as the FT and others blew off Neil.

He joins myself, writers Lucian Miers, Steve Moore, three of our readers Jonathan Price, Nick and Sam plus 80 year old Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham and his long suffering trainer. So that makes nine rogue bloggers so far.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: should I sack the dishonest Welsh worker part 2

Yesterday all of you said i should sack him. But the sad old geezer has texted me today.I relay what he wrote and ask, in today’s edition of the Moral Maze, if I should still sack him? The answer I think you will give, bears direct relation to both musicMagpie (MMAG) and Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) which I discuss. I also cover Petropavlovsk (POG), Amala Foods (DISH), Zak Mir, Richard “Nobody Likes me and I do not care” Jennings and Lift Ventures whose IPO seems not to be quite as “imminent” as Zak told us it was two months ago.

It was all to do with bastard banks pulling the plug and macro trends crushing his business model. Ring any bells yet?

Vast Resources: Atlas dumps again as cash crisis becomes critical – fat Lady now gargling for May Day performance!

Just 4 days after death spiral provider Atlas converted $150,000 of debt into Vast Resources (VAST) shares at 0.86p having forward sold, it has announced the conversion of another $150,000 this time at 0.77p. In February the conversion was at 1.24p. Do you see a trend? My guess is that those shares have already been forward sold and that Atlas will now be working on dumping even more stock ahead of the next conversion. Why the panic? Two reasons:

UK Oil & Gas – FY Results – explicit warning of bailout placing ahead

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel - as winter ends, my wood store is bigger than ever

Reader R and cousin P drool with envy at the size of my wood store currently. Though the wood-burning stove has kept us warm all winter, I have chopped more wood than I have used, and thus the wood store below has, I reckon, enough to see us through to early 2025. That middle section really is four rows deep, and more than five feet high. And the good news…

I draw your attention to a real share trading oddity at Magpie before heading on to  discuss whether Vast Resources (VAST) or Catenae (CTEA) will go bust first.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I start the expose of a new well known zero in waiting tomorrow but here are three to tuck into first

Forgive the voice. Last week’s cold has left me sounding like I have been swallowing gravel. I start with a few words about distractions today which included ordering 72 blackthorn plants and 12 wild blackberry bushes and fetching antique Welsh furniture to go to Greece. Then I ponder whether Nigel is reinvesting his Ariana (AAU) dividends in Ariana (AAU).I explain why I am not and where I am putting the cash. Or  rather I am sitting on the fence between Optibiotix (OPTI) and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX). The 3x company I mentioned on Saturday, is a well known one and will be exposed via a multi-part series kicking off tomorrow at 8.30 AM and it is, I am sure, a zero.  Ahead of then I discuss what makes a real bear market and how it affects rubbish stocks out of cash. Until you see  a good few RNS statements each month saying that “shares are suspended pending clarification” you are not in a bear market.  In that vein, I mention three POS companies which RIGHT NOW have no cash and are burning it: Vast Resources (VAST), Chill Brands (CHLL) and [email protected] Capital (FRAUD) and I discuss the next steps for that trio and why the net is tightening on them.

Then came the famine and mass migration took place.  For Northern and Western Europe, with the assistance of mass immigration, the answer is 2021. But look further East and what you see is explosive and might be one explanation of events in Ukraine and Russia.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: $60 does not make you a Russian asset nor does chucking Russian vodka make one a hero

I discuss with reference to Tulsi Gabbard, who I admire immensely, and Nigel Farage, who I don’t, what makes someone a Russian asset. Neither Nigel or Tulsi are but that won’t stop certain loons from saying they are. Then a bit more on dangerous fake news. Then I look at Pearson (PSON), Novacyt (NCYT), Nightcap (NGHT), Deepverge (DVRG), Chill Brands (FRAUD) and [email protected] Capital (FRAUD).

Journalist trolling arse Gerry Brandon fools the morons (again) – production orders are not revenues &certainly not cash!

As Deepverge (DVRG) burns cash and prepares for this year’s bailout placing, the journalist trolling arse of a CEO Gerry Brandon is playing his usual game of spoofing the morons who comprise his shareholder list and ramping the shares with announcements that are designed to mislead a group of investors with a collective IQ of less than that of a cheese sandwich. Last year Gerry the arse broke AIM Rule 11 with the pre-placing ramp, this year it is more nuanced spoof.

Every Cloud has a silver lining – Lyin’ Steve Sanderson jumps on board the Ukrainian bandwagon

So what if women and children are being blown to shreds in Kiev. The “good” thing about that war is that it means we must stop using oil and gas produced by the evil Russians – we don’t use much anyway – and thus need to turn to UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) run by Lyin’ Steve Sanderson to bail us out. Talking of which, I wonder how the placing is going…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I despise Roman Abramovitch but stealing his assets is just wrong & a bad precedent

Obviously I do hope Chelsea goes bust and is docked 500 points and finds itself playing next season in the National League so allowing two clubs to be promoted which might just include Wrexham. But what is happening to the Abramovitch sets a dangerous precedent. I discuss this with reference to Evraz  (EVR). I look at Parsley Box (MEAL) and the role of certain institutional investors and also FinnCrap (FCAP) in some detail. I predict Parsley will go bust by the autumn notwithstanding today’s dishonest bailout.  I look at Oxford Cannibinoid (OTCP) and the growing scandal there  and also comment on Eurasia (EUA), then at Chill Brands (CHLL) and that other Standard Listed fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME). I discuss Summerway Capital (SWC) and Argo Blockchain (ARB) but I start with a parents dilemma.

Video: Politicians swinging from lamposts, mass starvation, a mammoth European recession - and that is the best case scenario

Again I present this as a counter viewto a one way traffic in the MSM. I can’t say that I agreewith all of what follows. Libertarian commentator Tom Luongo does not hold back.For starters he believes social media should be reserved exclusively for puppy and unicorn videos. As a hardcore libertarian he believes in human rights and is therefore against war as a matter of principle. Wars support the state and they are the worst possible outcome of human interaction.  He says that the Ukraine war is full of disinformation and bias from the media and as always the first casualty in war is the truth and that Russia appears to generally be less biased in its reporting. The Russians feel this is the least bad action they can take regarding Ukraine at this time.

I start with events in Ukraine and possible peace and where that leaves some Russian owned stocks.  Then I turn to Ncondezi (NCCL) and then a detailed explanation of why today’s Versarien (VRS) analysis matters but also why the cash crunch is coming far sooner than most morons realise and the next bailout for the loathsome Ricketts will not be pretty. And then I ask where next for gold and oil prices and stocks?

The [email protected] FRAUD: As another 489m death spiral shares hit the market the mega dilution (from Tradeflow) still awaits

Today is another day and another month where the fraud that is [email protected] Capital (SYME) has paid back a portion of what it termed a loan but was clearly a death spiral by issuing another 489 million shares to Mercator. Okay, £500,000 repaid only £5.6 million to go and with the shares trending ever lower that will require an utter blizzard of new shares for Mercator to forward sell. But that is not the end of the dilution.

Versarien – declining balance sheet quality, the roadmap to the endgame

Changing auditors for a listed public company a month before the Group’s year end isn’t a planned event as planned rotations are indicated upfront in the audit report and accounts and the notice to the Annual General Meeting.  As I pointed out in my note yesterday, such a late change is indicative of a tension between the company and its auditor’s even if that does not rise to the level of the auditors saying that there are no circumstances that the auditors wish to bring to the attention of creditors.

The terms of his departure, approved by his fellow troughers on the current board, are revolting.

Eurasia – no impact from sanctions claim already looks lame, shares tank but still a massive short

After hours yesterday Eurasia Mining (EUA) insisted that it faced no impact from the sanctions imposed on Russia by the EU, UK and US.  A few hours later Russia launched air and missile attacks on Ukraine and tanks started rolling in for what looks like a full invasion. Eurasia shares have slumped this morning by another 31% to 11.6p but that still values this company with minimal revenues and a monstrous cash guzzle at £349 million or almost £400 million on a fully diluted basis. That is crackers and here is why.

Two headmasters of Britain’s third oldest school swept the matter under the carpet but, to his credit, the new headmaster, James Barker, himself an OW, has done something. Barker, myself and governor Ruth Weekes had a long Zoom chat today and Warwick says that it believes my allegations against Eve, apologises for what happened and for its 41 years of failure in doing something about it. That was welcome. But that is not enough for Warwick is sitting on far worse secrets.

Eurasia Mining, the Ukraine and game theory

So Russian troops have” invaded” the Ukraine. Well to be accurate they have entered the two districts which are overwhelmingly Russian and where the folks almost certainly want to be part of Russia. And to be totally accurate, Russian troops have actually already been there since 2014. But listening to the BBC earlier let’s not get inconvenient facts get in the way: Britain, the EU and the USA are already imposing sanctions. So where does this leave Eurasia Mining (EUA), shares in which are off another 12% to 16.25p – almost 60% down from peak ramp 14 months ago and heading rapidly for an 18 month low?

Then onto how bitcoin and other cryptos are faring as a safe haven right now. And why that makes Argo Blockchain (ARB) such a monumental sell. It could utterly implode. I see that more than 25% of posts on the ADVFN Bulletn Board,a few hours ago,were on Shield Therapeutics (STX) with nearly all of them slating me for all the usual reasons.

Video: Interest Rate Tightening Cycles are Great for Gold

Analyst Mark O’Byrne is puzzled by gold’s lack of reaction to current global risks.  He says that the metals should have moved higher in response to inflation. Supposedly, they are anticipating rate hikes but a large move seems unlikely as that would crash the markets. Inflation is not transitory and we’re just seeing the start of it. He expects weakness in the short term for gold as Fed takes some sort of action. Then he says that within a short period afterward, we will see gold break to the upside.

Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast - why I think Skinbiotherapeutics is a 10 bagger (or more) from here

As you know I am reviewing my pension as discussed HERE. As such I am chatting to various CEOs who I have backed and yesterday evening I had a long chat with Stuart Ashman of Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX). He is not a bluffing promoter but, I believe, a sober and grounded chap. I came away from the call just incredibly excited. I explain why the share price is where it is but also why this could within a couple of years be a 10 bagger but it could equally be a 20 bagger. Certainly any free cash within my SIPP will, even at twice today’s price be going into this stock. And if I am right there is a clear implication for Optibiotix (OPTI) so I am not selling any shares in it either.  Footnote/correction. There are not 2 million psoriasis sufferers worldwide as per podcast but 120 million. I can’t say that weakens the case!

That the BBC even asks this question shows how morally bankrupt it has become - Stalin was reponsible for 20 million deaths

Okay we can argue the toss on how many deaths Stalin was responsible for. Some apologists say that in the years 1924 to 1939 it is ONLY 3.5 million. I suspect that the 20 million number is rather too high but whatever the actual number it surely puts him in a podium position in the all time genocidal dictators contest. Yes the part of the BBC responsible for educating our kids thinks there is another way of looking at Comrade Stalin,the bull case for Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili. That the BBC even asks the question below is yet another reason why so many of us find paying our license such an appalling idea.

Photo article - the chopper of, I fear, death hovers over the Welsh Hovel

Back with Joshua from school I prepared to finish off a long piece on how our Government lies to us via a pliant press. At that point I started to hear a large helicopter hovering overhead. For a minute I thought the cops had taken a lesson from that fascist Trudeau and were coming for me. But no it was a Police helicopter and living here by the river Dee, sadly, I knew what it meant.

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - doubters eat your words, first radishes appear

There were some who suggested that planting raidishes on the last day of January was doomed to failure. I suggest an apology is in order as the photo below demonstrates. The next line of radishes goes in in two weeks time along with a couple of other early vegetables. Meanwhile I still have some winter sprouts, a cauliflower and a bit of cabbage to harvest. It is a non stop production line here.

BREAKING Kefi and the mystery of the $1 company and the Ethiopian exploration storm in a teacup

Today we have great news from Kefi Gold & Coipper (KEFI). The Ministry of Mines in Ethiopia, not always the greatest battler for “the cause” has confirmed that Kefi has until July to secure funding for Tulu Kapi and get the project underway. I know that Harry Adams is dotting the “I”s and crossing the “t”s on the funding now and expect an announcement within the next couple of months, if not far sooner, that funding is secured. That will drive a big re-rate and I am a very happy holder for that reason. But what of the mystery of the $1 company?

EXPOSE: [email protected] Capital – does its claimed USP actually work?

The supply chain crisis triggered by governmental responses to COVID 19 has led to a massive focus on supply chains and efficient financing of those supply chains.  The acquisition of Taulia by SAP a $920 billion dollar market capitalisation business and the launch of Eliant Inventory Solutions backed by Apollo (a private equity giant) partnered with BNP Paribas and GEP a major supply chain specialist show that the financial sector is now actively mobilising to take advantage of these opportunities.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: WW3, Inflation and Tern vs Omega, similar deceit in the portfolio of death

I comment on a kind post one of you made on the LSE Asylum. In today’s Poirot on Channel 10 he had tired of fighting crime in the City and retired to tend his garden. I know how he feels. I discuss events in Ukraine, inflation and how it those who dismiss the damage it causes, Comrade Stacey, are wrong. Then I look at a BB portfolio of death, something for tomorrow’s bearcast. Two stocks which were both in it are Omega (ODX) and Tern (TERN). After last week’s collapse Omega may now be out – though I certainly would not buy. I discuss the common trait of how both mislead investors. I discuss how all folks should own some oil, a point I have made before, naming the 2 oil stocks I own.

A man who blocked Tom Winnifrith because he knew more about Omega Diagnostics and shares can't fess his gargantuan losses to his wife

The chap below blocked me on Twitter as I did not know what I was talking about when it came to Omega Diagnostics (ODX). He did, of course, and now he has lost so much money he cannot bring himself to ‘fess up to his Mrs that he has trashed the family finances. I do actually feel sorry for him though no doubt he has said a lot of beastly things about me. It will be of no consolation to him when folks, the sort of Omega owning folks who egged on his enthusiasm, say things will get better or he can learn from this. Things may improve for Omega and I hope he learns but right now he must feel pretty rotten. The biggest lesson, of course, is never to put all your eggs in one basket. Perhaps a second one is that, on bear calls, whatever you read on Bulletin Boards,I am almost always right.

A free to access podcast from Tom Winnifrith for shareholders in Omega Diagnostics

I guess you are all feeling a bit shafted right now and are wondering who to blame and what to do next after today’s debacle. Contrary to what you might read on certain Bulletin Boards I do not celebrate the pain of most Omega Diagnostics (ODX) shareholders, just those who abused and insulted my 100% accurate warnings of the bailout placing and other matters. For those chumps, it is schadenfreude all round. So what should you, as an Omega shareholder, do now? I answer that question and them discuss the legality of my reporting and indeed the morality of the reporting plus I explain exactly who shareholders should be angry with on a number of matters and why. Enjoy.  My regular daily podcast, behind the paywall, will go live later today. If you are not yet a ShareProphets subscriber and do not want to get caught out again as you have been today, you can rectify that HERE

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Omega confirms my scoop (again) but now I reveal what it is NOT telling you

Firstly I discuss how Omega Diagnostics (ODX) mislead folks on 19 January about the lack of a placing. The slippery words of PR shithead Paul “Queenie” McManus of Walbrook saw folks pay 15p per share. Today Omega confirmed my latest scoop, yes it has raised £5 million and will do an open offer for another £2million at just 5p. But Queenie says this is dependent on another corporate action. In the podcast I reveal exactly what that action is since the PR shithead won’t. There is a brief discussion about poor Prince Charles and the total bursting of the Covid stocks bubble. Then onto the shocking corporate governance and executive greed at Nanosynth (NNN). It is dressed up as aligning executive interests with those of mug punters owning this grotesquely overvalued stock.  It is nothing of the sort. The shares should fall by 90%.  Former chairman Antony Legge would NEVER have allowed this. How standards have slipped.

When we arrived here at the Welsh Hovel almost three years ago, our land which runs along the lane down to our farmhouse was known as the jungle. Almost the size of a soccer pitch I only discovered that it contained three asbestos and corrugated iron sheds after about a year so thick were the bushes, trees and undergrowth. Now, of course, it has been turned into an enormous vegetable garden but at the far end there is still work in progress.

Whoopi Goldberg doubles down on the “acceptable” form of racism and because she’s a celeb liberal she’s only cancelled for 2 weeks

Actress and TV host Whoopi Goldberg piped up yesterday to say that the Nazis did not kill six million Jews because of racism but just because man can be evil and inhumane to other men. You see, according to Whoopi, most Jews and most Nazis were white so it can’t be racist can it? This is so blindingly obviously wrong at every level. Jews were killed because they were Jews. It was racism. And downplaying that, or pretending the holocaust was not, as we say today, a “racially motivated crime” is racist. But then in liberal circles in the West, anti-semitism and holocaust denial is not really considered proper racism any more, after all the Israelis are mainly Jews and, everyone in Islington, Hollywood or on most campuses agrees that the Israelis are ghastly fascists. Whoopi then doubled down!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The Hitpiece NFT heist, the madness moves up another level

I start with Hitpiece  – the latest NFT scam. Aren’t all NFT’s scams? I discuss the ephemeral nature of contemporary music as an asset class. Then onto Amigo (AMGO) where – with the shares surging – it is surely ‘a mega’ short. Then it is onto regulatory and ethical failure at Braveheart (BRH) and Chamberlin (CMH), the common links being the scumbag Trevor Brown and the scallywags at Peterhouse Capital. Then on to more regulatory failure at Chill Brands (FRAUD) before I take along look at UK SPAC (SPC) and all who sail in her. Finally a few words on Optibiotix (OPTI) where I plan to catch up with Steve O’Hara later today.

Chill Brands – Spreadex out, when will lying rule breaking ramper John Story admit to next share sale, as insolvency looms

The real issue with the fraud Chill Brands (CHLLis that it could run out of cash within two weeks. It is teetering on the verge of insolvency: the FCA IS NOW looking closely at interims from last week which imply that THREE trading statements in 2021 announced, what are now, clearly bogus sales and meanwhile its main ramper, the lying rule breaking John Story who said the shares would go to £25 is bailing as fast as he can.

What I could really do with is a week long dry spell so that the last puddle disappears from the lawn and we can then level it off, filling in the slight dips that allowed two puddles to form, And then we can level out the barn side bank at the front of this picture with earth lapping round the edge of the steps so that they are invisible from either end and grass over the remain bit of the construction.  There are some weeds to remove with poison, a bit of reseeding on the river side of the lawn and we are there.  Next up…

Private Eye on Novacyt - this is damning

I warned you time ad time again that Novacyt (NCYT) was a ramp with the sole purpose of allowing now departed CEO Graham Mullis to trouser an enormous cash bonus based on the share price on just one day. In the end Mullis trousered £8.5 million but, last week, Private Eye served up a great article showing how the company has a cultrure of lying and fabrication and had investors known the truth about tests that did not work or which were contaminated, Mullis would be far less well off than he is today. This is a scandal and the ramifications could be very serious. Potentially a claim by the DHSC could wipe out most of this  company’s balance sheet (cash of £100million) with ongoing cash burn now that sales of its covid tests are evaporating, taking out the rest. This remains a bargepole stock/short.  The article is below.

But it is now almost February so it is time for the first planting of 2022.  I am conscious that there may still be a stack of frosts to come, so the one line of radishes is covered with plastic cloches, wide enough for me to add a second protected line in a month’s time, the idea being to harvest throughout the year so we have enough both to eat fresh and to pickle.

I comment on some of the excellent points he makes but add in half a dozen of my own, notably comparing boasted net cash and net interest costs but also the shameful CEO pump and dump and the macro headwind given the demographic of its end user base. This is probably not another Patisserie Valerie but at 320p it is a stonking short.

Omega Diagnostics manifestly deceives investors as CEO walks the plank

If the share price of a company is in sharp decline and the CEO walks it is for one of two reasons and neither is good. It could be that the CEO knows that things can only get worse and wants to put as much clear blue water between him and a ship that is bound to sink. Or the rest of the board know that stakeholders will only do what is needed to try to keep the ship afloat if there is a change of captain, it is an admission that the ship is in deep trouble. Either way it is always a sign to sell or short or add to shorts and that brings me to Omega Diagnostics (ODX) where I have been a long term bear.

OptiBiotix Health (OPTI) was one of our tips of the year, with we anticipating financial progress as its deals for its compounds expand and further deals kick-in. It has now announced that a further human volunteer study on its cholesterol-reducing probiotic LPLDL - on a different population group of hypercholesterolemic adults – has shown “at six weeks, when volunteers taking placebo were compared to those taking LPLDL, there were statistically significant changes to clinically important cardiovascular risk”, including “34.2% reduction in total cholesterol (p=0.001)”.

Bulletin Board Moron of the week – yes it’s a shareholder in heading for insolvency Chill Brands

So our Polish cleaner’s 12 year old son wants her to buy Bitcoin – at least it is not Argo Blockchain he wants to punt

I am rather taken with the new cleaning lady the Mrs has hired. She scrubs up well, works hard and her views on a range of issues including masks, vaccines, inflation and the role of the state are thoroughly admirable. And hearing myself and Lucian discuss how mining companies claim to be ESG friendly by hiring loads of lesbians, she thought that a good joke and remarked that my work seemed interesting. That would not be how the Mrs would react, both to the joke and the description of my work.  I mention all of this only because Agnieszka has been arguing with her 12 year old son who wants her to invest her wages in bitcoin.

Video: Energy Crisis will drive gold to new highs

I cannot help but think that unfolding events in the Ukraine are going to be positive for both gold and oil in the coming weeks. But that is not the thesis of analyst Steve St. Angelo of the SRSrocco Report. Steve seeks to show how energy can impact the price of gold and why it essentially sets a floor for the metal. He argues that the foundation of our global economy is the cost to produce goods and there has to be a profit margin: Everything has a margin but unfortunately, investors often forget this factor when evaluating charts.

Anyone who points out that not only are standards in the women’s game much much lower than in the men’s game but also that the amont of interest in it is a fraction of that in the men’s game is atttacked as a sexist bigot.

Would twitter consider 2024 to be a fair race if it barred one candidate from tweeting? The banning of Trump set a precedent and since then more and more folks have been shut out for questioning election results, vaccine policy or indeed a wide range of aspects of the Big State liberal agenda.

Resignations or sackings must surely result from this expose. In today’s article I shall name some of those targetted by Union Jack and is shameless boss David Bramhill.

Starbucks on Diversity - gives us a break you woke corporate tossers

What I would love to see in terms of coffee shop diversity is a range of small,independent shops where the folks don’t write your name on a plastic cup but know your name and say hell and chat to you. What Starbucks wants to see is all those stores cleansed from High Streets so that all High Streets look similar with the same big names selling the same mass produced preoducts, a total lack of diversity. But Starbucks  cannot wait to tell us how diverse it is, it is a champion virtue signaller..

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A sleazy PWC report does not excuse grotesque NED share option greed at Optibiotix, it stinks

I start with a few minutes on Woodlarks. This may be my last year doing the Rogue Bloggers Walk but myself, Lucian Miers and Jonathan Price are minded to do it once more in May or June. On the basis that it could be a last hurrah and that you may want to consider a way of shifting that Christmas belly bulge how about you join us in 2022? Then onto Optibiotix (OPTI) where its NEDs have behaved in a most disgraceful way with free money share option troughing. As a loyal shareholder this is another kick in the gonads for me and I urge Steve O’Hara to sack three of the four of them and replace them with one new, less greedy, individual. Actually I’d go for all four booting out chairman Neil Davidson as well.

No institution will touch this POS with a bargepole so it is an inevitable trip to the bucket shops for a discounted raise. The shares are now 11.75p. The NAV is not going to be anymore than 8p and is falling so what price to you think the placing will be at?

Hard data shows this to be patently untrue. Yet where is twitter which takes down thousands of vaccine sceptic tweets for being “misinformation” when this obvious lie is broadcast? When, as someone earning his living analysing numbers and data, I offer hard data on covid, folks such as the mask jihadists of Holt or creepy LinkedIn either say I canot comment as I am not a trained Shipman like Dr Kayat or just censor me.

Guess what sort of workers are suffering most from Long Covid?

The Mrs has left the radio on and I find myself listening to, the unimaginably bad, Women’s Hour on BBC Radio 4. Even the Mrs admits it is utter piffle and has now demanded that it be switched it off lest it make me even more angry with its utterly fake news. The show is all over a story today that the ONS has suggested that 1.3 million Brits have long covid. This, it concludes, is a great reason to go and have the booster jab although there is no evidence at all that it will stop anyone catching long covid from the very mild Omicron variant since it has been around for only a few weeks. The ONS survey has a key takeaway which the BBC loves as it allows it to indulge in praising the usual victims. Which professions suffer the highest rates of long covid?

How the cash strapped NHS spunks its cash on BLM art contest

The envy of the fecking world is, as it has done every year for the past two decades, claiming that it is at breaking point and that it needs more cash if it is not to collapse within weeks of the start of the year. It is an annual ritual and, as we bang our pots and pans demanding that GPs on £100,700 get even bigger pay rises even though almost half still refuse to see patients face to face, or that hundreds of diversity directors on £75,000-£100,000 are vital in the fight against covid and need pay rises too, do we ever question the scale of waste? How much does the NHS spend on things or staff which make not a jot of difference to patient outcomes. Over to the Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust.

Austria v Sweden in pictures - the GroupThink covid doom-mongers were just plain wrong, give them more knighthoods

Instead those in the GroupThink bubble lavished praise on Austria whose draconian lockdown, suppression of dissidents and crushing of civil liberties and its economy, would have made its most famous son proud. Austria was the posterboy for lockdown. So if the GroupThink crowd were right and folks like me were wrong, Sweden would have suffered far more covid deaths than Austria: right?

Tom Winnifrith Christmas Eve Bearcast - no rest for those exposing the wicked

I end with a seasonal message of goodwill to all men. I start with a detailed demolition of Versarien (VRS), Deepmatter (DMTR) whose placing statement is a disgrace and finally of Love Hemp (LIFE) an Aquis dog from Peterhouse Capital where, after today, there are more red flags flying than on May Day in Moscow. It is a shocker. I also have somewhat implausible news about Central Copper Resources.

BREAKING DAMNING EXPOSE: Alpha Growth – the shambolic Prospectus is finally approved by the FCA but how and why? An essay in “not fit for purpose”.

Alpha Growth Plc (ALGW) has finally had FCA approval of its Prospectus for the Placing that occurred 10 months ago in February 2021. The FCA is supposed to ensure that any Prospectus issued complies with the rules but it is apparent from a quick read that the Prospectus has not been properly updated throughout the document as many of the references are considerably out of date. It looks like someone at the FCA just wanted to remove the Prospectus from his or her to do list prior to the Christmas holidays rather than subject the document to appropriate and proper scrutiny or perhaps it was simply signed off after a long Christmas lunch. I cite below some examples of where the document hasn’t been properly updated.

It is below. Our only gripe with Jennings is that he seems to think that appointing Tory toff Sir Henry Bellingham of 3DM infamy as a NED helps anything. It does not.

Toby Van der Meer is, in fact, so keen on the Willingham family that he charges £0 for his services to Nightcap.  So he charges nothing and waives through utterly iunjustifiable payments to Sarah and her hubby and is also the man who allowed the company to pay a personal legal settlement of La Willingham which the prospectus explicitly said it would not do.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I am so ffing bored with Ariana but is that a reason to sell?

I start with a report on life at the only place in the world wetter than Wales. Will harvester B have to swim across the dry river to make it home? There are photos on my site but it is getting a bit nerve wracking. I look at crypto and answer questions from reader Guy as to whether it is a bubble. I discuss the ethics of Matt Earl closing most of his Civitas Social Housing (CSH) short and I admit again to being bored by Ariana (AAU) while others are bored by Optibiotix (OPTI) but is that a reason to sell?

If you like pubs or Wales – here are some shares I bought: deadline midnight Sunday

I am not so keen on pubs these days and my feelings on my fellow residents of the rain sodden* land that is Wales fluctuate. But I have invested a modest sum as a present for my daughter in a fund raise that closes at midnight Sunday. If you like pubs or Wales or both I urge you to join me on the shareholder list. Will I make money? I doubt it so this is like most stocks on AIM but this is a good cause.

Photo Article: Logistics central here at the Welsh Hovel

My Christmas presents for those outside the immediate family, friends, relatives and neighbours are a combination of Yarg cheeses, dried chillies and Greek Hovel olive oil.  There may be the odd jar of home made jam chucked in to the mix. 17 Cheeses arrived on Wednesday. Four are for personal use as the whole family of the Mrs. will bless us with their presence. The rest, sometimes as halves, are to be dished out.

BREAKING: Peter Brailey sends demand to Union Jack regarding skin crawling, journalist trolling Fortisat Dossier – so should others

As Peter disclosed earlier this week he is the journalist on this website that Union Jack Oil (UJO) paid the bastards at Fortisat to compile a dossier on with all sorts of very personal information plus ludicrous assertions. David Bramhill, the now disgraced, boss of Union Jack has admitted that there are around 20 such dossiers. Peter has now written, as you can see in a redacted manner to protect private addresses and phone numbers, to Union Jack demanding that it hand him any of the 20 dossiers which mention him. David Bramhill promises me…

Tern – when is the next placing, massive cash crisis by Easter

Having raised £4 million gross at 18.8 pence per share on 13 July 2021, the Bulletin Board Morons, although feeling somewhat sore given that the Tern (TERN) share price was 12.5 pence bid price at the close of business yesterday, might be consoling themselves thinking that, at least, the jam tomorrow specialists, won’t be asking for any more cash for some time.  Sadly, that isn’t the case and I demonstrate below why they will very shortly be asked to stump yet more cash to feed the greedy board and its portfolio of loss making and cash guzzling investments.

Boatman Capital savages Argo Blockchain again - devastating dossier Number 2

The highlight of this dossier is Boatman demonsrating how Argo’s (ARB) rebuttal of its allegations about a dodgy Texas land purchase made in dossier No 1, just does not stack up. One might even say Boatman shows Argo was telling porkies.  Then there is the really sniffy related party investment in a company in all sorts of regulatory scrutiny because of its involvment with disgraced broker Pello and its “colourful” boss Andy Frangos. And it goes on and on. As Boatman points out, if you believe in electronic tulips there are many ways to play bitcoin without buying into Argo’s forest of red flags. Anyone owning these shares is mad. The dossier is below.

For the record, this will not be the last one. So, who is next? Abingdon again or the other grossly overhyped covid dog Omega (OMX). But first a covid prediction…

Every year with every new olive harvester there is, what appears, a ritual. I say “don’t eat any of the small olives we are harvesting for oil.” They then bite into one and say “yuk, that’s revolting.” At which point I remind them of what I said. Another ritual is that I go pick around 45 edible olives and warn them again not to bite into one until they have cured them back in Airstrip One. This time they listen.

The Botswana bounce and the cash strapped – a short list for shorting

I write after a day in which shares rallied sharply after Friday’s big sell-off. That shakedown was on fears that the Botswana covid variant or rather the extreme over-reaction to it given the level of hospitalizations and deaths it has caused (0 & 0) could see corporate earnings hammered. I noted on Friday that the sell off was driven by a false fear. Surely even the lunatics in charge of the asylum we call Britain will soon have to accept that the Omicron (an anagram of moronic) variant is no great threat and thus the new lockdown measures will have to be reversed and thus the impact on PLC earnings will be trivial. One would hope so. That growing realisation that our leaders have blundered is what, one suspects, drove the rally.

Just ten people in hospital with Omicron Covid, but how many were admitted with it?

As this wretched Government in England and the even more wretched one in Wales implement more and more draconian and ludicrous policies it emerges today that there are just 10 folks across the UK in hospital with the Omicron variant, yes that is the new strain of Covid that we are told will overwhelm the NHS. Yes, that NHS  – envy of the fecking world,let’s all bang pots in the street- where only 4% of beds are currently filled with Covid patients. But, of course, what we are not told is how many of the ten were admitted with Omicron or were there for some other reason and were subsequently diagnosed with Omicron.  This is madness – consider what the NSPCC says today about lockdown, something Michael Gove and most of the political and media classes are pushing for.

So Omicron deaths are booming in South Africa, right? Er...

The South Africans tell us, as do US and EU authorities that the Omicron variant of covid is really not very harmful at all. And what is more they have data which supports this as you can see below. As Omicron started there the South Africans have real data. This was dismissed today by one of the doom-mongers advising our wretched Government as merely “anecdotal.” But it is not, what you see below is hard facts.  What can be dismissed are claims by the experts who always get it wrong, such as Professor Pantsdown Ferguson,that 75,000 of us will die from this variant by the spring.  Ferguson has a track record of forecasting which, over many, years is unbelievably consitent. He is always wrong.  Yet Boris Johnson et al do not look at facts on the ground, hard data, they believe the“experts” who ignore this hard data and their ludicrous predictions.

You think the Aegean is always blue, calm and warm? Think again. I took harvester B to visit the house of his hero Paddy Leigh Fermor in Kardamili. We peered over the walls and I told a few stories and then wandered around a tourist town which was dead. There was just one place to eat andf we both enjoyed a cold cheese and spinach pie. The beach at Kardamili has no sand just stones at one end and rocks at the other. The near end ( stones) is normally accessed across a dry river but it was in full flood so we accessed further along, driving past the Police station of which I have such unhappy memories. At the far end by the rocks, the sea was raging, as you can see below. Hardly flat and blue.

It is almost always dry but as the storms lash Greece it is filling up rapidly. The photos below were take at 3PM today and the water was six inches deep at the crossing point. Since then it has absolutely bucketed it down with rain, almost non stop.  The wind is also howling. Up in the mountains where this river starts the rain is even heavier. In a few minutes, harvester B and I will head into Kambos for supper. I suspect that it will be rather deeper now. And by the time I have to take B to catch a bus in Kalamata to start his way back to Airstrip One, at 7 AM tomorrow, God only knows.

Socialism today - more tax for a lavatory cleaner so a £90,000 Prof can get a bigger pay rise, justified with lies by Zarah Sultana MP

Back in the 1970s my late father would make a point of crossing the picket line when his colleagues were on strike. He, and his friend Bill Whitehead, would march past the other liberal arts teachers with pride. After the event, my father would note how unusual it was to see so many of his co-workers in the Warwick University English department actualy turning up on campus. Dad would have been proud to see the Mrs breaking the strike this week although as she was working from home that day it only meant answering emails. According to the bright young thing of socialism, Zarah Sultana MP, it is as University staff have suffered a 20% pay cut so she backs the strike. As so often Zarah makes things up. My father was the sort of lefty who believed that Government should look after the deserving poor and that folks should speak the truth. He would not have been a big fan of Ms Sultana on either count.

Last time I attended the Village Surgeries Group practice just over the border in Farndon, among the infidels of England, it refused to give me a flu jab unless I masked up. I started to discuss exemptions – something legally you cannot question even as a gauleiter with the NHS – but no dissent was brooked. Today I took my daughter for her one year jabs and, for her, wore a mask albeit below the nose.

Esther Rantzen’s pampered daughter, Rebecca Wilcox, should fuck off back to London

I grew up in the countryside and have always believed that pampered rich Londoners are the scum of the earth who should be confined within the M25 and not allowed out to inflict their metropolitan elitist views and money driven sense of superiority on we folks in the boonies. And that especially when, like Rebecca Wilcox, they have a job as a hereditary broadcaster.

Tom Winnifrith bearcast - the dossier that made my skin crawl

I do not name the company but the dossier is one one of the journalists here. It concludes that he has done nothing wrong but it goes through utterly uncalled for very personal details about him, his world view, his girl friend, his work and more. It made my skin crawl and the company that spunked £40,000 on this document should be utterly ashamedof itself. I have put in a call and let it know that behaving like this towards one of our journalists is asking for a lot of trouble. It is repellant and I am on the warpath.  I then look at the SP Angel/Union Jack Oil (UJO) scandal, at Nanosynth (NNN), Powerhouse (PHE) explaining the RNS/RNS Reach issue in full. Finally, I discuss Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX).

Sensyne shareholders punished for the greed and duplicity of sleazy CEO Labour Lord Drayson

It is not just sleazy Tory Lords that this website finds unacceptable, and I am not finished with cash for questions scumbag, the Earl of Shrewsbury yet. On the other side of the house sits Lord Drayson, a man enobled by the war criminal Blair and, by pure coincidence, a generous donor the the Labour party. Drayson founded and is CEO of Sensyne (SENS). And today there is another kick in the gonads for his shareholders.

England 20 Latvia nil - more meaningless records here in Airstrip One

Shots 63 to England nil to Latvia. Shots on target 30 nil to England. Fastest England hat-trick in history. A new record goal scorer for England. Yes it is women’s football and the fact that England gets to play opponents who would struggle in a game at the weekend on Hackney Marshes shows why all these records and cricket scores are utterly meaningless. But you will not be hearing that in from the deadwood press. So who pays to watch this mockery of competitive international sport?

BREAKING SCANDAL ON AIM: Has SP Angel been dumping shares while telling folks to buy yet again? It’s Union Jack Oil

A couple of years ago we exposed how SP Angel had been ramping the arse off Bluejay Mining (JAY) with ludicrous price targets while secretly dumping its entire holding at a fraction of the stated target. In other words it was selling its shares to the same folks who wanted to buy because of its ramping. SP Angel should have lost its license from the FCA then and the regulators should have been pressing charges against the individuals involved. The regulators did nowt and now we come to Union Jack Oil (UJO).

The doctor at the centre of the Omicron "epidemic" says on the basis of hard data Boris Johnson and the UK are panicking

I noted on Friday that in South Africa, where the new strain of Covid has emerged, the number of fatalities and indeed the number of hospitalisations is the same as the number of times I have shagged Cheryl Cole this week. That is to say, zero.  All viruses mutate in a Darwinian way. To ensure species survival those that are more transmissable tend to be weaker, killing the host makes no sense. But, of course, mask jihadists – which includes almost everyone at the BBC -  as well as most of the villagers where I live here in lockdown Wales, say that one must “liste to the science”. I offer hard data they offer doom and say that only scientists – as opposed to those who earn a living analysing data – are allowed a view. The fanatics want the State to strangle our liberties and the economy again. So here is a doctor fighting this strain at the centre of the epidemic appearing,amazingly, on the BBC today. Watch what she has to say on the basis of hard data and take that as your cue to resist Sajid, Boris and the rest of the deranged control fascists now running Airstrip One. Watch the video quickly before Youtube removes it for being what Prince Harry would term fake news.

Last week the Girl Guides, a body which booted out and smeared as bigots some old stalwarts back in 2018 who had raised conncerns when the organisation embraced the idea of recruiting teamleaders who were women with pemises, had a spot of bother with two such leaders who seemed to have somewhat strayed from the path of rightousness.  Now meet Chloe Thompson a 41 year old “lass“from Middlesborough.

Wretched Bully Boys at Essex Police now threaten those who question their pointless trans virtue signalling

Yesterday, unlike Essex Police, I looked at the hard data on transgender murders which showed clearly that in many years nobody at all was killed in Britain for being trans and that, overall, trans folk were far less likely than the rest of us to be murdered at all. That did not stop Essex Police and others, including Jeremy Corbyn, from marking the Trans Day of Remembrance #TDOR for trans folks who had been murdered becuase of how they identified. I mocked this pointless virtue signalling by folks who should really be out there catching murderers, rapists and burglars. So how have the Essex filth reacted? With the tweet below.

Kyle Rittenhouse: How the liberal political and media elites tried and failed to frame a white man for racist killings (of white men)

The British media is, not surprisingly, full of footage of folks in Brooklyn and a few other urban liberal ghettos for posh folk, rioting and attacking cops because Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of what they term a racist killing. Yes the two men who died were white but logic, proportion and the truth died a long time ago on the left. You will not be shown how in real America, in the flyover states, in the suburbs and in the small towns there are no riots because folks agree with the jury system and because the jury bravely defied political and media lies and pressure to reach the right verdict. But you will not be told about this. Never. You will be told this is a stor about gun ownership, white supremacy, racism  and injustice.

Trans Day of Remembrance For the useless, fact ignoring, virtue signalling, poltroons at Essex Police

How many unsolved robberies, murders and rapes were there in God’s chosen county of Essex last year? I don’t know the answer but it is good that the Essex cops can take time off from tackling actual crimes to send out their tweets regarding Trans Day of Remembrance (#TDOR), one of the 109 special days for the 2.7% of the population who are LGBTQA+.Not only are the fuzz wasting resource with this pointless virtue signalling but ithe useless rozzers can’t even get their facts correct as one respondent to the idiotic tweet points out, as you can see below.

The Greek Hovel Summer 2021 – our last weekend and a holy day cancelled pointlessly by the scamdemic

As I make preparations to travel to Greece once again for the olive harvest up at the Greek Hovel, my mind drifts back to the last weekend of our summer vacation. My trip in a couple of weeks will be a solitary one, my annual chance to be part of a community that is tied by its DNA to the olives, but also to detach myself from the insanity of life back in Airstrip One. It is a chance to consider what I want to do with the rest of my life and other matters and, obviously,to drink a lot of ouzo and Metaxa. But back to last summer.

So it is Toby who must have approved the payments of £167,530 to settle legal liabilites of Dragon’s Den star Sarah Willingham,her husband Michael and others when the prospectus specifically said the company was indemnified. And Toby must have pushed through the 100% performance related bonus for La Willingham for last year when the group lost c£5 million. But as a NED he is independent right? Er…

On the basis of what I describe the so -alled independent NEDs need to consider their position, the Nomad Allenby needs to force an immediate repayment of the sums involved and the company, already seriously uninvestable though capitalised at £32.1 million is a 100% bargepole.

Video: Market Valuations have Diverged Considerably from Reality

Veteran financier Simon Hunt argues that there are generational risks in the global economy, there are growing bubbles everywhere, along with enormous amounts of speculation, overvalued markets, and geopolitical tensions which all appear to be worsening. In addition, he says, we have central bankers running wild but debt can’t continue to grow faster than the economy. Navigating these risks is difficult. You can either run with the crowd or take preventative actions. Interestingly, two countries China and Russia have chosen to take prudent action for their economies. They are preparing for the monetary collapse outside of their countries. They understand that this will end badly.

Man-made carbon emissions are causing the world to get warmer and we must act now if we are to restrict that growth to 1.5% or 2.5% or whatever. So say the cultists after jetting back from COP26. These are, of course, the same cultists who warned us in 1988 that the Maldives would be under water by 2010, that within a few years of 2000 kids would ever see snow again, etc, etc, etc. We can discuss whether climate change – which has always happened – is caused by man made carbon emissions with reference to the Medieval warm period or the Maunder Minimum at another point although if you want to pass Geography GCSE these days such discussions are not recommended. Those who set the curriculum, the BBC, wretched Boris Johnson and others say that the science is settled so do not mention temperatures in 1200 or you are a vile denier one step removed from those operating the holocaust death camps.

My GP will not treat give me a flu jab unless I mask up, but nobody at the Village Surgeries Group, over the border among the English infidels, can offer me one shred of evidence as to why a twice jabbed chap who also has antibodies from surviving covid is more likely to transmit the disease to other twice jabbed folks if not wearing a mask.
