Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel a mad plum rush

There are two old plum trees here on the edge of the vegetable patch. And i have planted another six in the new orchard which are now fruiting. Some of the latter will not be ripe for another few weeks but some,and the bigger old tree were pregnant with the sort of purple plums you can see below.  it really snuck up on me. I only noticed this a day and a half before we all headed off to Greece.But Joshua and whirled into action picking allt he fruit we could reach either as we stood there or by knocking down witha hoe.

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel from 1862 a record of family history

Trust me, it is gripping stuff. Ahead of that, enjoy a newly framed piece of family history from 1862.

Video: Mark Steyn takes apart VP Kamala Harris waffle

The liberal media is wetting itself with excitement that a female person of colour is going to be the Democratic nominee for President. Okay, so polls only last week showed that Kamala Harris would do even worse than Joe Biden against Donald Trump in battleground states and her national popularity ratings are lower than even the senile old sniffer of the hair of young girls. The Libs reckon that Kamala will beat Trump. I hope they bet the ranch on it. I quite like the idea of Jon Sopel having to live in a cardboard box. Anyhow if you think Kamala is the answer have a watch of this video from the great Mark Steyn covering a Kamala speech a year ago. Every US voter needs to watch it before November.

Then to the US election, a legal win for Trump, Biden stumbles again and again but may survive as a lame candidate thanks to the shooting of Trump. It bought old Joe time. Then I look at JD Vance and what he brings to the ticket, locking down the Northern swing states. And Elon Musk’s money enters the game, what does that mean?

Is Stuart Ashman lying again?

My real beef with Stuart Ashman, the CEO of Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) is not his grotesque pay package and the fact that he snaffled a pay rise last year when his company headed backwards operationally. Nor is it that he tells overt porkies with his “Rules are rules” claims. My real gripe is, as explained in bearcast today, how poor decisions made by him have cost we loyal shareholders badly. Losing 2/3 of the share price in less than three months is worse than careless. But back to the lying.

Oh dear, Oh dear as the shamed tipster “old Mother” Mike Walters used to say when one of his shite share tips went horribly wrong. Oh wait: Verditek (VDTK) was one of his shite share tips! Its shares were 20p at peak Walters enthusiasm. They are now 0.11p after an admission today that it is giving up the solar panels business and becoming a cash shell, albeit with almost no cash. The big red flag here which Walters overlooked was that Verditek repeatedly lied about contracts won to get placings away only to ‘fess up afterwards that the contracts, even those described as take or pay, had not happened. So, serial lying and thus fraud…always a bit of a red flag.

Tom Winnifrith podcast: Farage is NOT a Russian asset, the establishment hit job in an election in a country where everything is broken

The car below is another every day reminder to me of how everything the State is meant to do seems broken despite taxes being at a 70 year high and debt being almost 100% of GDP, on bodged numbers. The real number is even worse. And so to a pal from Oxford who asked and to anyone else who cares, I just say that I do not really care who wins. But egged on by a vile establishment hit job on Nigel Farage, with whom, as long term readers know, I have often disagreed, I am going to vote ReformUK just as a screw you vote against that same establishment within the political and media class GroupThink. The lavatory seeping shit into the River Dee photo article is HERE and expressed a similar sentiment to this podcast.

A £1.4 billion cash guzzler run by a prize bullshitter – still a short

I cannot imagine what institutions were thinking as they piled into Oxford Nanopore (ONT) at 425p in its September 2021 IPO. Maybe it was the Neil Woodford hype? The deadwood press has certainly sucked up press releases and gave it the full promote. But a valuation of £3.7 billion for a business which was a massive cash guzzler and would be for years to come was insane, as I suggested at the time.

How to create a £2. 5 - £7.5 million life sciences portfolio in 10 years the Welsh Way: start with £ 50 million!

Earlier today I flagged up the horrific and seemingly somewhat iffy way that £7.8 million of Welsh Government money had been spaffed on soon to go bust Reneuron (RENE), to transfer just 25 jobs from England to the rain sodden post industrial second world nation of Wales. But it seems that this is just the tip of the iceberg. I write this as the father of Welsh speaking, proudly Welsh kids, living in Wales.

Tom Winnifrith podcast: The EU Elections, the UK & US elections and Ukraine

I start with the results in Europe and what they mean for Ukraine but also what they hint at in the UK and US elections. In the UK I believe that Reform is now ahead of the Tories in the North, the Midlands, Wales, East Anglia and the South West. I discuss its likely vote (large) and seats (small) and just how few seats the wretched Tories will win. In the US I discuss two now convicted felons: President Trump and Hunter Biden concluding neither conviction alters the November race much but the failing mental health of Hunter’s Dad is becoming more of an issue. I suggest that 4 states considered swing states are now firmly Republican while at leat two, maybe more, considered likely Dem are now “in play”.The polling data looks ever more grim for President Biden and his candidacy in November is increasingly less of a given. In Ukraine it gets worse and worse for Ukraine as I detail.

Tom Winnifrith podcast: the US election after the Stormy Daniels case, the Ukrainian war and the British election as Farage steps up to the plate

I start with Nigel Farage and his decision to lead Reform and stand in Clacton. What does it mean for the results for Reform, Labour and the wretched Tories? I put this in context of a mood of unease and unhappiness across Europe ahead of EU elections this weekend where insurgents will make big gains. I voted Tory last time and was planning to spoil my ballot paper. this time. I may still do that on July 4th but many of us who are disgusted with the entire political class will back Farage. I don’t like some of what he says, notably on immigration. But we should have a debate on that subject and the established parties just won’t allow that.  Then it is to the US where I sense the kangaroo court conviction of Donald Trump does not change the likely outcome. Then to Ukraine where the western media is distracting us again. The real story is not Kharkov but Chasov Yar. That is bad for Ukraine and that, in turn, is bad for Biden and Western leaders some of whose rhetoric is now simply insane.

The fact that it cannot even be honest about that tells you everything about this entity and its CEO Clarissa Sowemimo-Coker. Crazy name. Crazy gal. Before we look at the quite desperate refinancing have a butchers at the interims which also came out today.

Canadian Overseas – what’s another billion odd pieces of worthless confetti

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel: half term fun making elderflower cordial as the cat watches on

As for the area around the bush and around the olive, mulberry and sweet chestnut trees I have planted up there, Mr Strimmer is needed badly.

Within hours the press was reporting Government plans to ban disposable vapes, Chill’s product.

Who hates Jews more: Ken Loach or the Guardian?

I bring you the tweet below from the wretched Guardian. It seems that Corbynite filmmaker Ken Loach has quit as patron of a small London cinema over an “Israeli film festival screening.” That is just a tad misleading.  The screening is of a film, a film about a festival. Yes it is the Nova festival where on October 7 2023 hundreds of young Israelis were raped, sodomised, beheaded, shot, abducted and the film presents footage of that day.  That Loach quits as he cannot bear to see his Hamas rapist pals in action is in character for loathsome Ken. That the Guardian deceives with its headline, making it sound like a normal BDS protest against a new Israeli movie is equally predictable but still disgraceful.

Next up, I suspect is the battle for Chasov Yar, the next big town to the west of “fortress” Bakhmut, where Russian troops are advancing pincer like on two fronts and where battles in the outskirts, the “Canal District” are now underway.  Yet the western media is in denial as its past lies catch up with it.

Photo Article of my kids at their English Chapel: odd one out contest?

But they attend chapel with the Mrs, just over the border in England. So, with that clue, which is the odd one out? The kids at Chapel last week, Magdalen College Oxford or Nottingham in 2023?

GOTCHA: Belluscura has to revise TMT offer again

As flagged up HERE yesterday, the maths just did not stack up. And thus for the second time Adam Reynolds chaired Belluscura (BELL) has had to revise its all-share offer for cash shell TMT Acquisitions (TMT). First it was 15 shares for every 22, then it was 3 for 4 and today it is a straight 1 for 1. I am glad that Nigel Wray et al have done the decent thing but how do the maths now stack up? And actually is it still a good deal?

Versarien shares now 99.95% down from September 2018 peak – a cartoon from the heyday

Just over five years ago the shares were 182.5p. Today they are struggling to hold 0.09p. You must forgive my schadenfreude as this company’s biggest critic but its shareholders, egged on by repellent founder Neill Ricketts, trolled me – as did Neil himself – on twitter, discussed having me killed in chatrooms and also plotted to get my wife sacked by her University. So I delight in how such folks have lost a fortune. You may remember how one such poltroon produced cartoons mocking and lambasting myself and also Lucian Miers. As a reminder, here is one gem. It has not aged well.

The Welsh just like being spanked by Nanny State at 20 mph – reports from the last village in Wales

There was a recent survey showing that those, like myself, living in the rain sodden post industrial second world nation of Wales were among the most depressed in the world and one of the reasons cited was the rollout of 20 MPH speed limits. They are absolutely everywhere. The overpaid political midgets in the Senedd left it to the discretion of local councils as to where to apply the new limits and the power-hungry non-entities who run local councils across this once fine land could not wait to impose the limits everywhere they could.

BREAKING: The FCA Bottles it: Standard Listed frauds will not need an advisor after all & can "carry on robbing"

Oh dear, oh dear. The FCA had the chance to clean up the sewer that is the Standard List by forcing all companies to retain a regulated advisor, rather as AIM Companies have to retain a Nomad. Fearing losing its license a Nomad should, in theory, stop companies telling outright lies or committing fraud, as happens all too often on the Standard list. But a consultation paper CP23/31 shows that the woke warriors at the FCA have bottled it and thus will allow investors to carry on getting screwed.

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.

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.

And that brings us to Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) shares in which were up by 50% at one point this morning.

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.

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.

Cellular Goods CEO and Chairman walks, Mike Edwards back to complete the circle of related party bollocks but SMTM

You just could not make this up. Mike Edwards and his business partner Jon Bixby owned 31% of Cellular Goods (CBX) at the time of its 5p IPO. Their vehicle Durban Holdings paid just 0.1p for nearly all of its stock and as the shares were David Beckham/disgraced Daily Mail pumped they started sell. Indeed they sold all their shares. Lovely jubbly for them.

Video: The Greatest Scenario For Gold Stocks

David Skarica, Publisher and Founder of Stock Chart Of The Day says that the current rate-cutting cycle by the Federal Reserve is driven by  political pressure. He compares the current situation to previous cycles, noting that in 2008, the market was in a crash, while in 2019 and 1995, stocks were rallying before the rate cuts. 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.

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 explain why my old friend is to blame for the state I am in. I then move on to Helium One (HE1) and why its advisers and CEO should be strung up with piano wire, Chill Brands (CHLL) and why it should do the placing it so clearly needs before March, Alien Metals (UFO) and then more on Kefi Gold & Copper (KEFI), surely a cracking idea for a tip of the year?

Chill Brands is still not telling us what matters as it wins a supermarket deal

The issue, as ever, is reorder levels and while Chill says it has had some it continues to dissemble on how many. It is also strangely silent on how little cash it has left.

Well fuck you Chris you criminal dirtbag may your soul burn in hell: the SEC has today charged your man Dozy Mmobousi who was going to buy Sheffield United, with fraud. Dozy is accused of making millions via share sales and general corporate theft. Maybe Cleverly’s cousin James got him off the hook as Chris knew all about this. But so far only Dozy and Tingo Group plus two affiliate companies have been charged. The rap sheet from the SEC is below. An extra Metaxa for me tonight. Enjoy.

Westminster Group: the curse of Baldry set to strike yet again?

One of the golden rules of AIM shares is never to own shares in a company associated with slug like ex Tory MP Tony Baldry. It always ends in tears for investors while Baldry troughs it. When Fat Sir Tone became chairman of Westminster Group (WSG) in the summer of 2017 the shares were 16p. Today they are 1.275p, giving a market cap of £4.4 million. But could things be about to get even worse?

The interim accounts for the six months to June 30th showed that the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) had net liabilities of £2,108,000 meaning that it was technically insolvent because liabilities exceeded assets. The ongoing business lost £2,376,000 in the six months, roughly around £400,000 per month. By the year end of 31 December 2023, in under a months’ time, Supply will be looking at a £4 million excess of liabilities over assets.

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.

Boris Johnson really is a deluded chancer telling obvious lies and with Ukrainian blood on his hands

In the spring of 2022 Ukraine and Russia were ready to start Turkey/Israeli brokered peace talks. But, facing the partygate crisis at home, Boris Johnson bullied Ukraine to fight on. 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.

Video: When the FOMO Comes Rushing Into Commodities

Author Andrew Hoese from Finding Value Finance discusses the potential for inflation in the near future and its impact on various markets. He believes that demographic pressures and fractional reserve lending will lead to inflation and potentially a debt crisis if interest rates rise too high. He suggests that Jerome Powell may raise interest rates further to slow inflation, but this could make it unaffordable for millennials to buy homes. Hoese also discusses the possibility of a short-term slowdown in the real estate market due to deficits and the stimulus sent in 2020. Regardless further inflation may be coming.

Harland & Wolff – deeply discounted, keep the lights on, placing imminent? Tim Kempster

Shorter Tim Kempster says that by his sums Harland & Wolff (HARL) runs out of money either in December or early January. My analysis on this website has been permanently bearish and I agree with Tim. And in that vein I see that the shares are weaker today, at 13.5p having been pumped in recent weeks by ramptastic announcements. I also see that…

Photo from the Welsh Hovel: a predictable casualty of the wind

Regular readers will know that my green intention each year is to buy a Christmas tree which I can plant outside, bringing it in for Christmas before replanting it on January 7 in the garden. One year my tree lasted two Christmases, most years I manage to kill them one way or another after just one Yuletide.

I do hope it has flagged this up with the FCA as it struggles to get an RTO prospectus approved. I bet it has not.

Chill Brands – it is what it is NOT saying

But it is what it is NOT saying that matters.

A very bad week for #QueersforPalestine as they chant Yemen Yemen make us proud

The week started off badly for the “Zionist” haters as the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that a gay man from theWest Bank could claim political asylum in Israel becuase his sexuality meant that his life was threatenedback home. That is the reason that there are many more members of #QueersforPalestine than there are actual Queers in what the Western snowlflakes term Palestine.  Anyhow, forget about that, go die your hair blue and carry on marching against the wicked Israelis and, as you term them, Zionists becuase you can’t, yet, bring yourself to use the J word as you spit hate. Then it got worse for the marchers for Hamas.

Good news travels fast, bad news is always delayed. So instead of any news on the results/profits warning, to sugar the pill, we have another piece of bad news dressed up as good.

To that poltroon who said that I called Versarien (VRS) brilliantly in the era of disgraced Neill Ricketts but had not appreciated the ”turnaround strategy” I say “feck you, yet again it is ouzo on cornflakes time at Sheriff Towers”. Today, as predicted, comes the latest bailout placing raising a paltry £454,822, before expenses at a price of 0.275 pence per share. The net proceeds will be, I predict, little over £400,000 and will all be gone by St Valentine’s Day.

That changed on October 7 when the world woke up to the horrors of the Hamas pogrom in Israel, the worst slaughter of Jews in one day since 1945.

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.

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.

Hill has trousered millions since then and the shares are now just 0.0675p and that could well be 0.0675p too high for there is a horrible warning today.

Will Geoff Wilding at Victoria face huge margin calls and what will he do?

Both Lucian Miers and I have been long term bears of carpets roll up play Victoria (VCP) for a host of reasons, one of which is the “colourful” CV of head honcho Geoff Wilding. Another reason is the massive number of acquisitions some of which appear to make no sense at all. A third is its inability to generate free cash while always reporting stonking profits and a fourth, derived from that, is the debt and liability laden state of its balance sheet.

Argentex – Brutal CEO sacking, crushing RNS

That sounds bland enough but something made me look at it, call it a sixth sense, and sure enough, CEO Harry Adams has “left the Company with immediate effect.” I bet there are many looking at their voodoo doll covered in P45s attached with sharp pins this morning and shouting at the poor doll “FFS that’s the wrong Harry Adams.” But back to Argentex…

#BoycottEventBrite for heroic #RileyGaines and short the shares too

Check out Riley Gaines. She is a brave young lady who scrubs up well and who swam against the sort of Lady who has a penis, a “Ms” Lia Thomas. When Ms Thomas competed as a man she was nowhere but as a woman she won numerous contests. Riley and was cheated out of medals in US collegiate championships as a result. But Riley is brave and despite horrific threats, including death threats, from trans activists has launch a high profile campaign to keep women’s sport fair, that is to say not for women with penises. Riley is not anti trans she just wants sport to be fair.

Tom Winnifrith Podcast on Holocaust Memorial Day: as Sadiq Khan cannot bring himself to mention the Jews who died, I consider the lies we tell our kids about Bosnia

The timeline below is funded by you the taxpayer and is used to tell our kids about Srebrenica in Bosnia. They are taught fake history. I discuss why so many folks, especially the young, fail to grasp what a holocaust really is, what genocide really is and why it is more than ethnic cleansing. In part this is a history lesson for the young in part a sad tale about why fewer and fewer folks will say #NeverAgain and mean it. The candle may flicker in this house this January 27 but across Europe and America the candles are going out. I refer to this article from two years ago about Srebrenica

A peak market cap of £188 million is now less than £7 million and it may well be insolvent. Companies owned by Alessandro Zamboni of the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) infamy were meant to provide loans of £2.5 million by early September but he could not dump enough stock so did not.

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.

When it was announced that death spiral provider Anavio was putting in $3.5 million at 4p to Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) on 6th September we bears, admittedly steered by Canadian, jumped to the wrong conclusion. Today the sordid truth emerges and, by the way, the cash still has not arrived.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I suspect the biggest critics of Kefi have never run a real company or even a whelk stall

I start with a fascinating supper party last night, the phrase “he fought the Russians” and a book I am finally reading “Battlefields and Playgrounds” by Janos Nyiri. Then onto the conflation of a share price being pumped and the idea that creates value – yes ECR Minerals (ECR). Finally Kefi’s (KEFI) biggest critics have clearly ever run a company or even a whelk stall.

Photo article from the Greek Hovel: shocking slithering wildlife diversity as my harvesters make me the laughing stock of Kambos

The highlight of this year’s olive harvest has been seeing the golden eagles soaring overhead. A few years ago there was just one. Then last year I spotted that she had a mate and this year there were three eagles flying high above the house looking for breakfast. Later on one swooped down and flew past the front of the house at no more than fifty feet high.  It is a delight to see these rare birds flourishing. Today, we encountered wildlife diversity of a different sort.

Jesus was Jewish – just what madness sees some folks denying this at Christmas?

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. I kid you not.

Letter to AIM Regulation – will you ever act against Bidstack about its lies & rule breaches?

Not for the first time I have written to AIM Regulation about the rule breaking antics of Bidstack (BIDS) and its disgraced boss Lyin’ James Draper. The fact is that it is the failure of the Oxymorons to act against previous transgressions dating right back to the year of its RTO in 2018, that encouraged Draper to carry on lying and deceiving mug punters so that they have lost nearly all their money . Now as Bidstack slides towards insolvency, as I showed yesterday, it is probably to late to get it to change its ways but pour encourager les autres…

Tamara from Hendon is nothing like Shamima Begum

Immediately some fools screamed about how wicked it was to praise Tamara who was born in Hendon while demonizing Shamima Begum from Bethnal Green who went to Syria to assist ISIS.

By way of context, olive production across Greece will be half what it was last year. Spain and Italy are far worse. As a result, olive oil which I could sell at the village press for little over 2 Euros a litre in 2021 could now be sold for almost 10 Euro a litre. The problem is, of course, that while some farms are not down by much, others  including mine, have suffered a catastrophe. I reckon we will be lucky if we get a fifth of our 2021 harvest. However…

If we have ever given the impression that Mr David Lenigas is a run of the mill Aussie penny share promoter, we would like to apologise. He is clearly Britain’s Number 1 gold analyst and a national treasure like his fellow Aussie Mr Peter Tatchell. I wonder if Dave and Pete know each other?

Audioboom might reflect on its big bucks deal with Russell Brand – now when’s its next lack of profits warning?

It is not for you or I to judge the guilt or otherwise of Mr Russell Brand. I realise that when I suggested that it was wrong for Mr Philip Schofield to shag a runner on his show and to use TV station cars to ferry around a young lover that was, on my part, homophobic. That Mr Brand is alleged to have done exactly the same and far worse with girls is therefore all grounds for legitimate condemnation without fear of being homophobic. Whatever. What is fascinating is that it is now universally agreed that Brand has always been a foul mouthed ignoramus who treated women badly. Yet…

I did not used to be much of a baker but in the past couple of years I have got fairly good at making cakes. So I am kicking myself for slightly overdoing what is known as a Grandpa cake which you can see below. The top is a little well done but inside it is pretty moist as you’d expect of a fruitcake soaked in Guniness. that is not to say that my father was mad, just a bit eccentric, or soaked in Guinness, he preferred cider. It is just that the recipe is Irish and my father always referred to Ireland as the Old Country.

But I hate all wars and also being lied to by a media and political class GroupThink and – as I have flagged up on this site numerous times – we were all lied to.  I called out those lies. Many smeared me as a Putin apologist for doing so. I hope now they see the error of their ways. The harsh reality is that Ukraine is now losing ground and running out of men and women to fight for it. I explain various reasons why there has to be a peace and I curse folks like Boris Johnson who prolonged this war for two years so needlessly. They have blood on their hands.

SLAM DUNK SHORT: Belluscura – bailout placing looms to stop a gig with the Fat Lady within weeks

Put simply the states losses massively under-represent the horrific cashburn.

Sacking Suella Braverman – electoral suicide and caving to the mob

Over the past few years this website has chronicled time and time again the manifest failings of the Police. Folks in this country who are law abiding, pay our taxes and do not hate where we live feel utter despair as the Fuzz let us down again and again and again. Using the metaphor of a lavatory leaking shit floating down the river by my fields, I explained my sense of despair a few weeks ago. That is heightened as I watch TV and see folks who break the laws, spew hate and unhappiness but support radical causes getting a free pass.  The one politician who dared to speak up for folks like me and my wife, and – I sense and polls suggest – the vast majority of the population, was Suella Braverman and, for that, she has today been sacked as Home Secretary.

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.

Powerhouse Energy – Letter to AIM Regulation about that placing in a closed period

This seems pretty simple. Today, Powerhouse Energy (PHE) announced interims which were naturally utterly piss poor but covered in vast amounts of jam tomorrow. Its acting CEO Keith Riley also walked with immediate effect for “personal reasons.” Yet on 22 August through the offices of esteemed bucket shop broker Turner Pope, the company did a £1 million placing at 0.5p. hang on Henry… I have written to AIM Regulation

Oxford Nanopore – this just looks misleading: a £2bn share to short

I have always thought that Oxford Nanopore (ONT) was massively overhyped and that its CEO Gordon Sanghera was a bit of a bullshitter, fawned upon on by the deadwood press. The company IPO’d just under two years ago at 425p – its shares now languish at 231p. Today we have half calendar year numbers from a company still capitalised at almost £2 billion and the smell of Sanghera bullshit is strong.

Kicking a man when he’s down – Crest Nicholson

As the bear raider Evil Knievil often says, the best time to kick a man is when he is down. Less than two months ago the housebuilder Crest Nicholson (CRST) said that its full year to October 31 profits before tax would be £70 million. Now we are told to expect £50 million. And I reckon even that is not baked in.

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - reliving life in Byfield as we harvest marrows

I have these strong childhood memories of life at Butterwell Farm in Byfield of heading out into very cold and dark Autumn nights to help my mum harvest the vegetables for winter storage. There was a sense of urgency, it had to be done. We did not have a freezer so we used sand boxes for root vegetable storage and she also stored things in jars to sit in the cold room, the larder.

BREAKING EXPOSE: Lancaster University and the cover up for Professor Simon Mabon who celebrated the Hamas slaughter of 1400 Jews on October 7

On the day after the worst mass slaughter of Jews since World War Two, Lancaster University professor Simon Mabon, a man regularly called as an “impartial expert” by the BBC to comment on the evils of Israel, tweeted out his praise for those vermin of Hamas who had carried out the attacks, the rapes, the beheadings, the kidnaps, the roasting of a baby in an oven. 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.

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.

The BBC sinks to new low as Islamic Jihad kills hundreds in Gaza and Israel gets the blame

I have catalogued a number of examples of clear BBC bias with regards to Gaza and Israel on this website as you can see HERE and HERE. But last night there was an explosion at the Al-Ahli Hospital in Gaza. Hamas immediately blamed an Israeli air strike and said 500 were dead.  The ghoulish Jeremy Bowen appeaed on the BBC saying the whole hospital had been destroyed and the BBC – without checking the claims of Hamas – blamed the Israelis. Across the region there are huge protests and ever more violence and talks between President Biden and Arab leaders about peace have been cancelled. However…

Can Owen Jones really be this stupid: the Guardian posterboy blames Homophobia in Gaza on the British Empire in 1936

Little Owen Jones has this morning defended his chums who run Gaza, that is to say Hamas, from the charge of Homophobia by blaming the British Empire for oppressive laws in the rogue State. His logic is so terrifyingly illogical that Jones makes my cat seem like Einstein.

Leo Varadkar may your soul burn in hell, Ireland should be a pariah state as you commit blood libel against Israel

I am dusting off an Ireland shirt for tomorrow, supper round at the house of C, my pal from Munster and then the big game for the Old Country. I shall be hiding behind the sofa as the men in green take on New Zealand. But hang on what on earth is the leader of Eire Leo Varadkar saying? Is that a blood libel against Israel? You bet it is.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 10 years is bloody amazing, the Mrs is a saint

I start with a weather report here at the Greek Hovel, will lightening strike twice? I end with what i regard as a miracle, given my track record, tonight the Mrs and I enjoy an early celebration of our tenth wedding anniversary. The woman is a saint. In between I look at Regtech Open (RTOP) and share with you a laughable document below, CMC Markets (CMCX), Guild ESports (GILD), and Versarien (VRS)

BREAKING EXPOSE: BlueJay turned down far less dilutive finance ahead of bucket shop placing

When a company opts to dilute its own shareholders more than it needs to you know that management is running the enterprise for itself rather than the business owners and this is a terrible red flag. That brings us to BlueJay Mining (JAY) which, 7 weeks after raising £1.3 million at 1.7p, on 23 August raised just £600,000 at a penny. It did not need to as I today reveal.

Trying to help the FCA on Ashington Innovations – but will it still waive this £170m scam through?

For me this really is an acid test of the FCA’s suitability to approve Standard List prospectuses. You may remember that it waived through that of Umuthi Healthcare (UHS) prepared by a convicted fraudster. 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.

Photo Article: The green tomato glut means its chutney time at the Welsh Hovel

Last year I had an apple glut so there was stacks of apple chutney. This year’s apple harvest has been dire. I have enough to put in storage wrapped in newspaper on an apple rack to fill Joshua’s snack bag until Christmas. Having emptied the tree, under cover of dusk, at Joshua’s school, I have enough for two more runs with the still and to make about ten litres of apple juice which I might bottle up tonight. And there were a few cooking apples but its been a piss poor year.

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel – the kids and I make a cake for Dad who died three years ago today

Jaya never met Dad. She was born five weeks after he died. But she knows about the Grandpa who is in heaven not least because of a battered green arm chair in the corner of our kitchen where I slump between articles. It was and is Grandpa’s chair. Joshua used to visit my father with me as Grandpa lay bed-ridden in Shipston. My Dad always had chocolates by his bed so Joshua enjoyed those visits and could not remember Grandpa as anything other than a bed ridden old man being, oh so slowly, eaten away by cancer.

A British Jew in her sixties describes how she feels today – in short terrified

When folks like Ash Sarkar, Yanis Varoufakis, Peter Tatchell, various BBC and Guardian journalists and seemingly the whole of liberal arts academia take to the airwaves or twitter to slam Israeli apartheid, to serve up fake history, to talk of Israeli atrocities as Israelis lie slaughtered on the ground, it has consequences. When Steve Bell serves up yet another blood libel cartoon in the Guardian and is not sacked it has consequences. Many British Jews now live in terror. Here is the testimony of one lady I know, now in her sixties, a most amazing, loving and wonderful woman who just does not deserve anything like this. She writes:

How does the Guardian find such awful ghouls to employ – Bethan McKernan in Israel

The tweet below defies belief. Yesterday afternoon reports started to emerge of the beheadings of babies in a Kibbutz in Israel by the savages of Hamas. I call folks who behead babies savages, the BBC and the Guardian do not. I am willing to be judged by St Peter for my words. They don’t believe in St Peter and think that anyone who does is an ignorant old timer so they don’t really care about that. For a while the left argued that these claims about baby beheadings were unproven.

Tom Winnifrith Podcast: Hating the BBC, Jeremy Bowen and Women's Hour for its 10th October coverage of Israel

I wrote the other day on this matter HERE but the BBC plunged to new lows yesterday and I single out the Today Programme, Jeremy Bowen who really should be fired and Women’s Hour for matters which had me screaming at the radio as never before with wholly justifiable anger.

Is Twitter an anti-semitic company or just a sewer? Apparently this poster does not break its rules

I reported this twitter account to twitter yesterday after it spewed some Jew hating crap in my direction. I did so as twitter has an explicit rule about posting a hateful image. Now I reckon that there are  five very hateful images on the homepage of @crac67. But twitter says there is nothing to see here. Can you spot the hate below?

The Hamas victory parties in London and Sydney last night, the West needs to root out these vermin

In Sydney they lit up the Opera House with Israeli flags to show solidarity after the weekend pogrom by Hamas where the death toll is now over a thousand including 40 babies found killed, usually by beheading, at a Kibbutz this afternoon.  The babies are not combatants. Killing Jewish babies is what the Nazis did to stop the “virus” spreading on another generation. Even the Nazis did not usually behead the babies.  Most decent folks in the West are repelled by what Hamas did but in Australia a crowd of several hundred gathered near the opera house…

I have never hated the BBC so much as I do today as Radio 4 discusses Israel

Without any sense of irony, the flagship radio 4 show “Today” was pushing a programme on afterwards discussing how we might discuss Israel in an objective way. Taking lectures from the BBC on that matter defies belief. Listening to Today I have never been quote so angry about the way I have to pay £157 a year to fund the BBC. It stated repeatedly on Today that

Gerry Adams you blood soaked old bastard - why not feck off to Gaza you disgusting POS

It is okay to say you support  Palestine. I do not. But the Mrs claims to do so although her understanding of the history of the Middle East is like many folks with her views, not quite as deep as that of those of us who studied it as Oxford.  But there is a time and a place and as Hamas waged a pogrom this weekend slaughtering and raping women and children, shooting or cutting the throats of  folks just for being Jews, it would be somewhat insensitive to shout your support that loudly.

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - green tomato chutney

 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.

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - acorn squashes harvested

My colleague Darren reckons these vegetables are gourds. They are aparently white acorn squashes all harvested from just one plant in the marrow patch which I suppose I must have planted. Each year I hope I grow a pumpkin but seem to produce a new type of squash. Now all of them sit in my larder where they might just last eight weeks. I think they are the basis of autumn soups but will report back if I find any other way to use them.

Amid the glut of marrows there is also one acorn squash. There will be more on that as it has now been harvested while I try to figure out what on earth to do with the marrow glut. Meanwhile there was also one gherkin plant which produced more than half a dozen gherkins, now also all harvested.

BREAKING: c/o Winnileaks - How Jason Drummond tried to stop folks knowing about Shareprophets exposes!

As my investigations into Ashington Innovations (ASHI) intensify, more and more folks are coming forward. I have an absolute bombshell this weekend which, surely, even the FCA must act upon. Today a source has contacted me via Winnileaks to say how Ashington co-founder Jason Drummond used to publicly say how much he hated our numerous exposes of his antics here on ShareProphets. As you can see below, Drummond was desperate to hide the dirty washing we exposed.

BREAKING: MORE SCANDAL VICAR, Ashington Innovations – this gets worse and worse

I have already clearly demonstrated that the proposed £135 million RTO of technically insolvent Cell Therapy (aka Celixir) by Ashington Innovations (ASHI) is a complete rum and coke HERE. I have been discussing that with the FCA today. If it approves the prospectus it will be one of its biggest blunders in years. But now it gets worse.
