BREAKING: Margin calls at Zoetic force John Story to break Cellular goods lock-in & dump shares – is he fit to remain a director at Escape Hunt?

In May of this year I put it to Mr Neil Thapar, the PR supremo of Cellular Goods (CBX) that John Story was selling some of his 15 million shares in the joke David Beckham pot play, even though he was a lock in not set to expire until 26 August this year. Thapar pooh poohed me. Today his company fesses that Story has indeed breached the prospectus lock in.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Matthew's Dog will be on cloud nine as I am so angry with Nigel, the corrupt Sunday Times and with MyHealthChecked

First up, after I nudged Paul Staines (Guido) we did get that hat tip as you can see HERE. Cheers Paul. I then look at Babcock (BAB), Boatman Capital and the corrupt deadwood press, Minoan (MIN), the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) and its missing results, Kefi (KEFI), [email protected] Capital (SYME) and the missing shares and then at MyHealthChecked (MHC) where I expect the shares to zoom within weeks but which is causing me to spit nails.

Versarien – another source of cash flow strains exposed

The Bulletin Board cult followers of the dog Versarien (VRS) never look under the bonnet at hidden horrors. That is why critics such as Ian Westbrook are so useful. Ian has now raised more than 70% of the cash needed ro make loathsome stock hustler Neill Ricketts sweat with a court hearing. He has six days to raise the rest. Please donate, even if it is just a tenner, HERE. If the full £20,000 is not raised you get your cash back. Please give now. So what is this little horror i have stumbled across?

The Fraud Zoetic – letter to FCA over two more rule breaches

The FCA should have thrown the book at Standard Listed Zoetic (ZOE) when – with the shares at 76p on February 3 2021 – I passed it this damning dossier. It did not and Zoetic and its bent band of advisers, led by the journalist smearing mother Henry Harrison Topham of Buchanan,  have taken this inaction as a cue to breach the disclosure rules in the most blatant way knowing that the FCA are toothless woke dullards. With the shares at just 43p to sell (and 43p overvalued) I have written to the FCA asking that it act on the latest rule breaches with, at the very least, a public censure.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: MyHealthChecked & Zoetic again, on the latter big questions raised

On MyHeathChecked (MHC) I tidy up all the loose ends from yesterday’s options storm and i am confident that the greedy management have behaved in this way as the shares will head higher. On the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) I discuss the purchase of the domain name Chill.com and all the questions that throws up. I do know a bit about buying domain names and this is not what it seems. Then I cover the 2 questions that its financial adviser, Nick Harriss at Allenby and its scumbag PR Henry Harrison Topham will not respond to and which i will be taking up with the FCA tomorrow. It strikes me these are slam dunk rule breaches.  Nick, at least, used to care about such matters.

Photo Article from the Greek Hovel - picking up my share of the 2020 olive harvest and an offer to you all

My business deal on my olive trees with Nicho the Communist is over two years so that he gets half the profits fromm a bad year and half from a good year, these things run in cycles. 2020, when I could not muck in as the Mrs was giving birth back in Britain, was a bad year. The oil produced was enough to cover the fees of the Albanians who do the actual work, after leaving 15 litres for my own use. My fear is that this year will not be very good either and I have invited Nicho up to the hovel for a swim, a drink and an inpsection.

Photo Article from the Greek hovel: trekking to the second castle we can see from our home - Kapetanakis

The 15th century castle of Zarnata sits on the hill overlooking Kambos and as you loll in our pool its ruins can be seen clearly on the skyline. But look closely at the view from the hovel down our land and in the far distance you can see another structure on the skyline, Kapetanakis, and yesterday Joshua and Jayarani accompanied me on a visit while Mrs did some of her very important work in lovely Eleni’s Kourounis taverna.

Photo article from the Greek Hovel: From hell towards heaven

I do not like Kardamili. A few hours detention in its Police station thanks to a bent cop and an even more bent hotelier did not cause my dislike but it did not help the cause. Though a pretty town Kardamili is very expensive and worse still it attracts the biggest tossers in Europe, swarms of them. The Mrs, however, quite likes it.

Photo article from the Greek Hovel - Joshua and I fail with our exploration

The Greek Hovel sits on top of a hill. On the hill opposite, the one heading towards Kambos and which is  a bit lower, stands the abandoned convent. As you head up into the mountains behind us the dips between hills get shallower and the climbs steeper. The mission Joshua and I undertook was to discover an 1850s bridge and a route behind our hill and the next one “up” to the village or Orova. What follows is a record of our failure.

An inconvenient truth global warming map of US states

Another begging email arrives in my inbox from woke hustlers Avaaz. It tells me that European floods are unprecedented and a sign of climate change. Of course you and I know that German flood levels have been much higher many times in the past. It is just that flood defence work (so passe) and listening to warnings about rising river levels (so last millennium) have been abandoned as the powers that be wet their knickers about climate change & spunk taxpayers cash accordingly. Meanwhile Avaaz wants me to look at temperatures in North America and panic. We have literally months to save the planet so how about I send some of my hard earned cash to Avaaz so that it can pay its woke staff a fecking fortune, oops I meant save the planet. It all sounds so simple but it is a lie.

Tom Winnifrith praised and thanked by a regulator yet again as another PLC forced to correct crooked accounts signed off by KPMG

Sometimes when I read what BBMs write about me even I start to wonder if I am a bad guy even though I know all their defamatory slurs are false. But those who matter know otherwise and also take me seriously. Today, another letter arrives thanking me for my work which has caused another PLC to have to restate crook accounts. The Sheriff of AIM vs Eden Research (EDEN) and KPMG (again). For the second time in 4 years my work has spurred the Financial Reporting Council to act against Eden & KPMG.  I have now lost count of how many such missives I have received from my good pals at  the FRC but it is quite a lot.

Yet again I have been thanked by the regulator for exposing cooked PLC books. Not that this will stop BBMs from defaming me in all the usual ways but those who count know we matter. So I discuss Eden Research (EDEN) and KPMGThen there is Peter Brailey’s amazing scoop.

EXPOSE: St James House – a shocking history of related party disposals

In the last couple of years, St James House (SJH) has made two separate disposals in respect of its payments business to a company MDC Nominees Limited which is wholly controlled by its in-house barrister Mr John Botros.  The first two disposals generated very significant profits for St James as it disposed of insolvent businesses for only £1. St James has now sold a third payments business in the same way.  The details of all three transactions are summarised below:

Is loathsome Neill Ricketts scoring the biggest own goal in business history?

At time of writing, the Versarien (VRS) share price is 29.55p, below the crucial 30p support/resistance. If it hits the low 20s or high teens in the next month or two I don’t think anybody except the die-hard bulls on ADVFN would be surprised. And the company is due to release some numbers soon, expected to continue the pattern of declining revenues and to show profitability as far away as ever. With the number of covid cases declining sharply (and very welcome it is too), the bounce in revenues from selling graphene-enhanced face nappies will prove to be very temporary indeed, I suspect.

If this is not a sign to sell all your shares I do not know what is. The list of rogues with zero experience of managing money but who are veterans of ramping penny share frauds and promotes who are involved here is such a massive red flag.  Lift Ventures was set up with £50,000 from the paid for penny stock ramping site LSE Share Talk on 13 May. The lead director who, it appears, will be managing its investments is Zak Mir who has never managed other folks money in his life bar the generous handouts he got from his parents as pocket money when at Harrow.

In today’s podcast, I look at the FCA’s new business plan, at ADVFN (AFN) and why Yair Tauman need to put up or shut up, at Online Blockchain (OBC), [email protected] Capital, Seed Ventures (SEED – in detail – and en passant the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) and Orcadian (ORCA) which I backed pre IPO and which Peter Brailey writes up HERE.

Happy Bastille Day to our listeners in France. Here another day of swimming and cooking for guests.

Photo Article from the Greek Hovel - Nicho's Albanians clear the way to the humanure pits

I have long gazed at olive terraces on the other side of the valley and elsewhere in Greece and wondered, with some envy, at how flat and clean they look when compared to my frigana strewn land. But this year, my business partner in olive harvesting, Nicho the Communist, engaged some Albanians to clear our terraces out and the result is a wonder to behold. The first photo is the view from directly behind the house.

Photo article from the Greek Hovel - Jayarani takes to the pool in her Burkini

I am not sure that the Mrs is not being a little over sun-sensitive when baby Jayarani makes brief forays into the pool. Anyhow, Jaya’s costume is a full burkini and she rather enjoys being swooshed around by her parents. At other times, as you can see, she just sits in a large plastic ring chillaxing as her elder brother splashes anyone else he can find. Even yesterday as the skies again darkened and a wind blew through the olive trees, the temperature was just perfect.

A welcome cat at the Greek Hovel but not THE cat

Greeks treat cats pretty badly. Anyone who has been here at a tourist hotspot will have been pestered by thin-looking moggies at more or less every restaurant in town. When the tourists go, the weak ones die or are killed by the locals. Only the strongest survive on rats and mice until the tourists arrive again. It is all rather brutal and something the natives would rather that tourists did not dig into, too much.

Graham Wood – vile enforcer of the cult of Versarien

We have seen previously, through his emails, group chat posts and postings to ADVFN bulletin boards, how Graham Wood had many deeply “interesting” interactions with Versarien management, including CEO Neill Ricketts. It seems that as far back as May 2017 Wood ‘popped’ into the Versarien offices apparently at will whenever he was in Cheltenham (only 27 or so miles from where he lives), where he was exposed – deliberately or accidentally – to highly price-sensitive information which he then relayed to other investors in a series of thinly-disguised nudges and winks. He also openly admitted to meeting Versarien company officers for friendly little chats, relaying what they said in bulletin board posts the next day. None of this is in question, it is all backed up by his own words in verifiable emails and bulletin board posts.

I say this as someone who came into the tournament not supporting England for a range of reasons but who was won over by the charm of the young squad and of the manager and by the way it seemed to unite and give joy to the whole country. All of those involved in England did their country proud. I shall now go back to supporting Northern Ireland, but in this tournament the match against the Hun was the key turning point for me.

The plunge protection team has done a miraculous job of propping up the market. But, unfortunately, Paul argues, the dollar will continue to decline, and inflation will result in the prices of everything going up.

Photos of the Greek Hovel for Olaf's first headmistress

The first question was to me “how is your father?” for Mrs P was the ex of my father’s oldest friend, “vicious”, who was also my godfather. I sense that Mrs P would detect Olaf’s innate brilliance and she would gain a place despite an appalling comment from Big Nose on the virtues of the National Curriculum. That was a schoolgirl error for Mrs P is delightfully old fashioned.

We already know that the March 2020 Prospectus for Supply contained materially inaccurate financial information in respect of the balance sheet because it stated that the unaudited proforma statements of net assets were £226 million which included £224 million of intangible assets.  In the interim accounts for the period ended 30 June 2020, shareholders discovered that there were only £1 million of net assets which included intangible assets of £1 million caused by an incorrect accounting treatment adopted in the Proforma Financial Information. But we now know it is even worse.

Many stocks in the recruitment sector have already responded, doubling and much more but here a current 294p to buy compares to a low of 220p and we see recovery potential back to 375p+.

From Zitsa, Joshua and I headed down the old road to Arta. There was no time to visit the trout farm or the entrance to the underworld or even a museum to the war of 1912-3 which I will be writing about later, for we were already running late and Delphi, even by motorway, was many hours away. But Joshua was fascinated by the story of this bridge which kept on falling down until its builder was told to enmure his daughter in it and did so. It has stood for many hundreds of years since.

Those Jews who did not get out in time were shipped out by the Germans en masse, when the Hun took over from the Italians, first to Piraeus then, by train, to Auschwitz.

Photo Article: Tears from Mike the Vlach in Anelion

When I first came here, there was no road from Metsovo to Anelion; you walked down one side of the valley and up the other side. It was steep. Then, a few years later, there was a road winding along the mountains. There was nothing at the edge of it, just a drop. I told Joshua all about a taxi driver chasing rabbits with his car on this road, causing terror to my whole family. My sisters will be delighted to know that there are now barriers on the side of the road but I still took each turn very slowly. I drove so slowly that when I spotted a tortoise, I was able to pull up, stop and lift it to the side. That was, I think, a lucky omen.

Road Trip Part 1 – now in Metsovo: what would Dad think?

After a delayed start from the Greek Hovel, making sure we had all we needed and shuttering the place up, a bit of a schoolboy error saw me leave the Motorway on the way up to Corinth and thus I found myself on a “short cut” to Patras. That is to say a non-toll old road. What a disaster. 110 km an hour became 60 and I compounded that with a wrong turn. Having seen signs saying Patras 40 km, suddenly there were no signs at all to Patras.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I'm only doing it for the Israelis, for the Jews & what about the missing £100,000 say the morons

I start with a reflection on two smears from Bulletin Board Morons and about how media platforms from BBs to twitter need to respond to deal with such malice. Then a few thoughts on why the Tories are pissing off Tory voters in Chesham and elsewhere. Then I look at Versarien (VRS), Westminster Group (WSG) and at Bidstack (BIDS), breaking AIM Rules as it teeters on the edge. Oh, is that a Fat Lady I see gargling over there?

BREAKING: AIM promoter Neill Ricketts presses the button and has lodged court proceedings against BB critic Ian Westbrook

The loathsome boss of Versarien (VRS) Neill Ricketts has made what, the king of the fraudsters, my pal Sam Antar would call out as a cardinal error for a stock promoter. He has not only threatened Bulletin board critic Ian Westbrook (Club Sandwich) with a libel case, he has now lodged formal proceedings. So why is Claim Number QB-2021-002159 such a blundering mistake by the AIM boss?

Letter to AIM Regulation Re Bidstack PLC as it teeters on the brink of insolvency

The staff at Bidstack (BIDS) should get paid next week, assuming that their employer can delay paying other bills. But it is unlikely to be able to meet next month’s payroll so calamitous has been the shortfall in trading vs expectations. Unless Nomad and Broker Stifel can get away a rescue placing within weeks, Bidstack staff should be brushing off their CVs as a matter of urgency. I have written to AIM Regulation as a statement is needed asap.

BREAKING: You could not make it up – star Avaaz speaker on media disinformation is crazy cat lady Carole Cadwalladr

I kid you not. Carole is the Orwell Prize winning journalist who made up a stack of stories about Cambridge Analytica, the Vote Leave campaign, Dirty Russian Money, Arron Banks and those pesky Russians getting Donald Trump elected in 2016. It has all been shown to be utter fantasy. Carole has now admitted that she has no evidence at all that Banks, who is minted in his own right, got Russian money to fund the Brexit campaign. She will shortly be taken to the cleaners by Arron in the High Court. She is the ultimate source of media disinformation. So today I learned that lefty pressure group Avaaz is holding a conference on media disinformation…

If only we had a Tory Government. Instead the regime of Carrie Antoinette and her husband Lyin’ Boris has a raft of new plans to encourage flexible working. They might seem harmless.

So for 35 years unlike all the women in the contest, her training was not interrupted by periods and she was naturally stronger.

Around 86% of Britain’s 3 million Muslims voted Labour in 2019 and in Batley 20% of the electorate is Muslim and they are not happy.

Sadly this brickwork was repointed with concrete so when one of my ships comes in, at some stage, I shall get that repointed with lime mortar to restore it to its original beauty in full. Anyhow, back to what Joshua calls his attic.

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel - Nettle beer and nettle cordial on tap

It is all bottled up now. The smaller bottles are cordial, the beer bottles beer, the glass at the front is beer. Joshua and I have both sampled the cordial, diluted with water, and it is pretty good. Meanwhile, the beer is fizzy and like a sour and yeasty lager. The cost of making all that lies in front of you is under a quid and the cordial will keep us going for months. What you see is minus two bottles of each which I handed to neighbours today on my way to pick up elderflowers which will soon become cordial, champagne and ice cream. Watch this space.

Letter to AIM Regulation – Lying by Remote Monitored Systems & SP Angel of the fraud MySquar infamy

The number of lies told by this company is so great that I have almost lost count. But then Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) is listed on the AIM Sewer where rule 67 states “Any company can lie to investors via RNS or in podcasts with Justin the Clown or that imbecile Zak Mir and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation will do absolutely nothing about it.” Okay I made that bit up. And so, with no great hope of it doing anything about quite blatant RNS lying, I have written to AIM Regulation about Remote Monitored Systems and its Nomad and broker SP Angel asking for an investigation into a new £1.5 million lie that emerged yesterday. The letter is below:

Breaking: Pocahontas says Bitcoin an environmental disaster for our planet

I can’t take Senator Elizabeth Warren very seriously but the woman who has gained massive career advantage by claiming that she is a Native American, though she is in fact 1/1024th Native American, holds great sway in the Democrat party. What she says is a good indicator of the direction of travel of the party now running America. As such, her full-on assault on bitcoin as the inherently pointless ultimate environmental vandal is of note. As it happens, for perhaps the first time ever, I agree with her. Enjoy.

BREAKING: Julie Meyer’s crackpot letter to shareholders in Viva as she still can’t get 2019 accounts out

The great one has not lost her touch in the bullshit department. Facing both criminal and regulatory investigations into, inter alia, alleged abuse of client cash, Julie Meyer’s new venture, Viva Partners (VIP), seems to have a few issues as well, not least an inability to get out 2019 accounts and holding an AGM for 2019, which even Ms Lingerie on Expenses admits is a bit naughty. Thanks to Winnileaks, I can bring you a barking mad letter Julie emailed out yesterday.

Explosive: 2018 Document from Neil Woodford which shows him admitting to screwing Old Mutual to meet redemptions

Thanks to Winnileaks I have obtained an explosive document prepared by Neil Woodford in January 2018  in which he answers questions put to him by Old Mutual for whom he – at the time – managed a value fund. I publish it in full and it is explosive in part because Woodford – for once – shows a degree of honesty in what he says. And that makes it all the more damning. If the FCA can be bothered to read this it explains in a nutshell why Neil Woodford should never again be allowed to manage other folk’s cash.

Meet some trolls who own shares in Remote Monitored Solutions, and here is a picture of a swimming pool in Greece owned by a real value investor

We were met with derision and abuse for numerous online trolls.  On a day when our analysis has been wholly vindicated with Remote shares crashing, here are three of those trolls in action.

Of course, the ultimate goal is to make it really home-made using goats milk and cream when we get goats. But that is a 2023, slipping into retirement, project. So far..so good

An early memory from childhood at Butterwell Farm is of the glass bottles in which mum and dad stored the ginger beer and elderflower champagne they made, exploding and then setting off a chain reaction of explosions. The IRA could not have organised it better. And thus the nettle bear I made is stored in plastic bottles which should not explode and which I am now “burping” once a day, that is to say letting the air out and the beer fizz. And boy is it fizzing. In a week’s time, the beer, currently sitting next to a piggy bank in the larder, will be ready to drink and will be decanted into glass bottles and stored in the fridge. I have already promised to bring a glass up to neighbour D, to the chap repointing our barns and to the couple who run the village’s Greek South African restaurant. After all, they had a special present for me today.

Now it seems, according to Lenigas, that IG wil pour petrol on the fire allowing gfolks to buy on margin. What could possibly go wrong?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Apparently I know nothing about tax

Okay, tomorrow is the big day. If you are yet to donate please do so HERE as the Rogue Bloggers are now just over £2,000 off target. In today’s podcast, I discuss at length issues arising from the Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and Optibiotix (OPTI) issue where Steve O’Hara says a man who took a company to the Isle of Man knows nothing about tax! Then onto the fraud Zoetic (ZOE), company specific issues and the wider one, raised by promoter David Lenigas today, of the increased risk caused by margin buying of small caps.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: does anyone care about corruption or misuse of taxpayer cash anymore?

I start with thoughts about yesterday’s walk, especial thanks to Jonathan Price, Steve Moore, Robert Lewis and Lucian Miers and his son, the other five rogue bloggers who managed all 34.2 miles. Lucian as the logistics meister who also got another stack of relatives to join us deserves especial credit. Thank you to all who sponsored us, it is not too late to donate here. Then onto what I see as corruption, the misuse of taxpayer cash by so many in the corporate world. It is legal but immoral but I sense no one really cares which saddens me.

The Best time to kick a man is when he’s down

Being a bear over the past year has, as I have noted many times before, been painful. You expose a company for being a fraud and its shares go up. You reveal that it has lied to investors and…its shares go up. You demonstrate that it is trading poorly and is running out of cash, its shares dip but then, post an oversubscribed placing, start to roof it again. It is unnatural. But it is the way of life in the last blow off stages of a bull market.

Bidstack: now days away from being out of cash, bailout placing needed ASAP but when’s the dire trading warning?

Surely, before undertaking a bailout-discounted placing with bucket shops, a company has to come clean and admit that trading is way below what had been forecast? Those are the AIM Rules but Lyin’ James Draper and Bidstack (BIDS) do not give a rat’s arse about rules and neither, it seems, do the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation. On 22 April, house broker & Nomad Stifel slashed its 2021 and 2022 sales forecasts and upped its forecast losses for Bidstack but the company is yet to admit that trading has fallen off a cliff. But today with cash down to almost nothing and staring down the barrel of insolvency, surely it must be made to ‘fess up?  Here are the maths:

A Bulletin Board Moron does Leni-Maths: It is the fraud Zoetic natch

As shares in Zoetic (ZOE) slip and stumble to yet another year low of 49p to sell, those margin calls must really be hurting and this share price could collapse very quickly indeed as folks can’t pay the margin calls. But some ignore big questions such as the one raised in bearcast today and indulge in classic Leni-Maths. Meet Kemche from the ADVFN Asylum who posts almost daily now that he is “averaging down.” I guess only another 49p more of averaging down and he will be put out of his misery. Kemche likes Leni-Maths. Enjoy:

The absurdity and lunacy of the current housing market

This Twitter thread comes from the US and the US residential market is very different from our own. If you have a spare $42.500, you can buy a perfectly nice 3 bedroom house with a garden and off street parking in Alliance Ohio, the small rust belt town where my friend, the late, Bill Long grew up. It is a post industrial sort of place in decline. In Manhattan, that same cash buys you a share of an apartment just big enough to rest a waste paper basket. America is so many local markets but the craziness you see there and the oddities, notably the lack of stock for sale and the craziness of buyers, is apparent in the UK too. Supporters of the SNP might consider point 10 carefully!

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel - the vegetable garden, the jungle as was

The area that was once the jungle runs about 60 yards from the back of the snake barn (a huge, green, iron shed whose days are numbered) gently uphill alongside the lane down to the Welsh Hovel. It is about 30 yards wide. And it is now really starting to take shape as you can see below. We start at the bottom, behind the snake barn looking up what is a gradual slope.  The biggest tree, about half of the way up, is a pear tree. On this side of it, the only things planted right now on the main patch are 15 chilli, hot pepper and sweet pepper plants in a row next to the cloches which have only just come off.

Maybe the odd kid will say that Queen Anne was a racist because she was involved in slavery.

If you are a pregnant man in the City of Lost causes...

The City of my birth is rapidly starting to rival Brighton as the woke capital of Britain. And thus it is no shock to see the local paper, The Oxford Mail, sending out a notice to all pregnant men in the county. In places like Oxford, it is offensive and sexist to suggest that only women, as in folks born with wombs, can get pregnant. No doubt, were a member of the University to flag up this madness, he or she would be censured for their intolerance and insensitivity. In a post fact world, what else should one expect?

The glass-filled ruins of an ancient shed just before the chicken shed were hidden from view. I had no idea it existed. What a difference two years makes. This is the field onto which five of our neighbours must look at from their houses and it was one of them who made my week by saying thank you a couple of days ago. So what does it look like now?

Video: Bill Maher now this really is brave - a celeb who dares to defend Israel

Celebs, especially in America, are always calling each other “brave” when they speak out on an issue which they all agree with anyway. Wow, that is incredibly brave to call out Donald Trump as a sexist, racist, transphobic, bigot. Cue a standing ovation at the Oscars from your fellow liberal luvvies. What would be really brave is to dare to dissent from the woke GroupThink. I rarely see eye to eye with liberal chat show host Bill Maher but I take my hat off to him for this eight minute defence of Israel based on hard facts and which, with wit, he ridicules some of Israel’s critics. Bill uses facts, something you so rarely hear when discussing Israel. It is a valid history lesson for young folk today who know nothing of the history of this region. Well done Bill. This is a must-watch.

BREAKING: BBC Reporter Tom Bateman happy to praise the work of Israel coverage of Hitler-loving Jew-hating colleague Tala Halawa

The BBC is still “investigating” its rabid Jew-hating reporter Tala Halawa who reckons Hitler was right to murder 6 million Jews. Quite why it has not fired her 48 hours after her abhorrent views surfaced or why it hired her in the first place is a mystery to me and another reason why we should #DefundtheBBC. But it is worse. Her colleague Tom Bateman sent this tweet below just before the scandal surfaced. It is still there. I would have thought that folks at the BBC would distance themselves from such a rabid anti-semite but it appears that folks like Tom are standing by her.  And that is a flashing red sign of the prevailing culture and bias of the BBC. Perhaps it is worth asking Tom if he is also a fan of Hitler when it comes to the Jews and also how he ensures that his work in reporting on events in Israel is completely partial.

We start with the one storey barns at the top of the L and at the start of its spine. These will be the chicken and goat sheds at some point and do not actually need much internal work at all.

Amigo shares slump as suspension lifted after volte face – what next?

This all looks a bit of a mess. Loan shark Amigo (AMGO) needs Court approval for a scheme whereby customers it screwed get only partial compensation. Those customers have been bullied into voting for it by directors making the threat that if the plan is not accepted then Amigo will put itself into administration meaning shareholders and screwed customers get nothing. The FCA has objected as the directors are lying, there is a fairer way.

Zoetic International – IFRS rules on revenue recognition: I sense morons in for a nasty shock

In an article the other day, I posed a few questions about how the fraud Zoetic International (ZOE) should recognise revenue in respect of its “orders” of $1 million which are almost certainly not repeatable.  A kind reader has forwarded me the helpful PWC publication “IFRS 15 solutions for the retail and consumer industry”, its guide to IFRS 15. The new revenue recognition standard published in June 2018. It is most illuminating.

Breaking: Sack Lyin' Steve Sanderson of UK Oil & Gas - campaign underway

So far shareholders owning just over 1% of Uk Oil & Gas (UKOG) have joined the campaign to sack the grotesquely overpaid CEO Lyin’ Steve Sanderson. But given how few shares the board own and the lack of any institutional ownership it will not, in my view, take more than 10% of the equity to send Pinocchio packing. As such we wholly endorse those behind the site below.

Eurasia yet again promises a dividend and then does a placing: this is the act of shysters!

Guess what? Today there is a $20 million placing. For such. Almost criminal. Spoofery to happen once is – on AIM – understandable, twice looks like carelessness.

To have your shares booted off not one but three exchanges looks like more than carelessness – it's USOP comedy time again

First, whatever Aquis was called back then booted US Oil & Gas (USOP) off for telling porkies. Then it was the Danish GSX Exchange where this company was once valued at £300 million which booted USOP off for telling porkies. Now we have a hat-trick which is quite some going for wee Brian McDonnell – the liar who runs this fraud which I have documented fully on this website. But this time I think it is Brian who wanted the shares booted off. Let me explain.

Detailed analysis: First Derivatives cleaning up its act thanks to me, Matt & the FRC but still a joke valuation

Thanks to the pressure applied by major dossiers and a string of exposed published by myself and by the Dark Destroyer, Matt Earl, a new management team at First Derivatives (FDP) has started to clean up its act. I got the FRC to force it to change its misleading accounts. And the old, very whiffy related party/Panama Pump deals of the ancient regime are gone. But yesterday’s results show that without the gloss of aggressive accounting and dodgy deals, what is left is a dull business but still one on a glamour rating. My original bear call – sell at £46 on 28 June 2018 – was spot on. The shares are now £22.25 to sell but still a slam dunk sell. Here is why…

Update: What's happening at David Beckham’s Cellular Goods? The John Story Lock-in and his financial woes as Zoetic shares now almost 50% off highs

As shares in the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) slid to a new year low today, this will have caused real pain for some of those holding shares on a CFD basis as they faced margin calls. Amazingly, more than 25% of the free float is held on margin and the largest single holder of CFDs is the proven liar John Story, with c6% of the company at risk of margin calls. We already know that Story has had to walk away from a couple of placing commitments he had made since early April due to his increasing margin pressure at Zoetic.

Zoetic – as the shares tumble again is it worth considering the matter of revenue recognition. You bet!

Shares in the fraud Zoetic International (ZOE) are off again sharply today hitting a new year low of 56p. They are still about 55p overvalued and with 25% of the equity owned via CFDs there are going to be an awful lot of margin calls being issued as each new low is hit. That will create some forced selling so making this a sort of rolling maul which will see anyone dumb enough to keep holding racking up ever greater losses far more quickly than they might think. And thus at this juncture I ponder the issue of revenue recognition, now that Zoetic appears to have a bit of revenue. I say “appears” quite deliberately.

The other side of the barns is the farmyard, this side is the Ha Ha side. When we arrived, along the whole of this side were metal and asbestos sheds in a fairly dangerous state of collapse, built on hideous concrete slabs of various colours. They are all gone but some of the barns were still dressed in thick paint as you can see below. But now they are not. There is still some paint dust on the walls but a good day of Welsh rain will see to that. The next step is repointing and brick repair, new guttering, windows and doors and we are there…

England Death rate falls to lowest since records began in 2001 – the madness of Covid hysteria exposed

That I need to preface this article by saying that all deaths are regrettable is a reflection of the hysteria that the Covid GroupThink has created, which thus drives a mob torching of anyone challenging that GroupThink. But here are some bald facts. In April 2021 – a cold month – the England death rate was, at 851.2 people per 100,000, the lowest since the ONS started tracking mortality rates in 2001. 38,899 folks died in April, 6.1% below the five year average.

This has sparked a row within the Tories which would have greatly entertained my Grandfather, Sir John Winnifrith, once the senior civil servant at MAFF, so a man who knew about farming, an anti EEC campaigner in 1975 and a staunch political soulmate of his pal Tony Benn.

Video: Fiat is Dead – Trade it for Real Value

Investor Rafi Zarber is a libertarian and an Austrian school economist so clearly can do no wrong at all in my eyes. He recently penned an article on money as a gold substitute where he defines the meaning of sound and hard monies. Money needs to be predictable in what it measures and have a predictable supply. Debt substitutes and paper promises become problematic over time, and the entire system becomes unbalanced. These imbalances cause price and supply disruptions across sectors, including commodities like mining.

A golden rule about companies that threaten legal action

Of course, there are some instances when it is appropriate to take legal action against some critic. If, for instance, the attacks are against wives and children, there is a threat of actual body harm or the allegations are just so outrageous (paedophilia for example) then a company might justifiably take action. But simply to bring in lawyers, who are always expensive, to try to silence someone who criticises a company’s business model, or its valuation, is a monumental red flag.

Hamas in its own words - this is why its acts and those of Israel are not morally equivalent

The BBC, Jeremy Corbyn, Keir Starmer and idiots across the land talk of the conflict in Gaza and Israel as if the two sides were morally equivalent and indeed, in many cases, suggest that Israel is the real villain. Israel is, of course, targeting only military installations to defend its citizens from attack. Hamas opts to site its military in civilian areas to use its civilians as a human shield and to score PR goals if they are killed by an Israeli bomb. Hamas just wants to kill Jews. Any Jew. Just as many as possible. You will not see this sort of material on the BBC or on any British University campus but if you doubt what I say about Hamas then watch this video below to hear and see what it really thinks. And then ask yourself which side in this conflict wants genocide and is driven by pure evil and which side is just trying to save its men, women and children from a second holocaust in 100 years.

Now the woke Independent whips up anti Jewish feeling with misleading headline

The fashionable left wing media just hates Israel and in cases that crosses the bridge into anti-semitism. Take this headline today from the Independent which suggests that merely for making the statement “free Palestine” a school kid has been suspended. There will be folks who read the headline and instantly start yakking on about Jewish conspiracies. But what really happened? It’s grim up North.

And now the Met Police gives succour to the Jew Haters

The video below shows a WPC at a Palestine rally attended by Jew-haters and others chanting “Free Palestine”. It is a sackable offence for a Police officer to express political views and after a new media pile on, this WPC has now been suspended pending an enquiry. The statement “Free Palestine” is an explicitly political statement. Some, like Hamas, take it to mean wipe out all the Jews and have a one state solution that Hitler would have been proud of.

The vile “rape your daughter” antisemitism in London today is only encouraged by folks like Sadiq Khan, the BBC and Keir Starmer

The placard below comparing the Jews to the Nazis was hoisted at the pro Palestine march in London yesterday. Nobody on the march appeared offended. So many of them hate all Jews that they are happy with such sickening words. Natch the Police did nothing and so today we have seen cars flying Palestinian flags driving through Jewish parts of London urging folks to rape the daughters of Jews and worse. The video is below.

Diolch i'r ffyliaid saesneg hael

The Mrs and I live in the rain-sodden, post-industrial, second world country that is Wales by just thirty yards. At the end of our garden and fields flows the river which separates us from the infidels in England. Here in Wales we pay less, on average, in tax than the accursed English but we get more spent on us on average by our preposterous Government of all the, lack of, talents. And now we are all, each and every one of us, going to get loads of bonus free money and guess where it is coming from?

The Envy of the fecking world, the NHS, reckons men can get pregnant...another round of applause needed

It seems that it is not just in the socialist hell hole that is Canada but also in the work bureaucracies of the UK public sector where folks push biological lies in order to pander to sensitive trans snowflakes. On a day when we hear that Lisa Keogh, a student at a Scottish University Abertay in Dundee, faces possible expulsion for stating that women have vaginas and those born men are, ceteris paribus, stronger than those born with vaginas, both hard proven biological facts, East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust shows us how to behave. In East Lancs, it is not just women who get pregnant, anyone can.

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel - another bonfire for mutant teenage curtain twitcher Abi as more buried horrors emerge

As you can see below, there is another chance for teenage mutant curtain twitcher Abi Lancellotte to get into a frightful tizzy as we burn off more brushwood from the top of man-made scrap mounds here at the Welsh Hovel. What you can also see is just how much awful junk we have removed from those man-made mounds at the edge of the field which we are now clearing. The earth goes onto the flood defence which will end with a Ha ha and another skip has arrived to remove another three tonnes of scrap metal which we have found buried here, including old farm machinery, stacks of barbed wire and other horrors. We have also taken out hundreds of sandstone blocks which will now be going into the Ha Ha wall making it a thing of real beauty. “FECKING Incomers….


Digging up things of beauty we’d buried and showing them off, removing legally and safely and at great cost tonnes of scrap iron, glass, asbestos and plastic we had buried and those vats of bitumen and tyres we had discarded. Fecking incomers. They just do not understand what it is to be Welsh. Feckers.”

AEX Gold – strategic update and long company chat

I wrote as a slightly miffed shareholder: AEX Gold (AEXG) has announced its full year 2020 results and a further strategic update and I have had a good long chat with CEO Eldur Olafsson. Previously-announced project development delay disappointment looks to be in the price and the potential of the project to still commence initial production by the end of next year does not. Then there is the possibility of equity dilution.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Explaining with hard data and FACTS why Zoetic shares will collapse from 63.5p to buttons

I thank those who have been so generous so far but if you have not yet donated to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks consider a fat middle aged man walking 27 miles in the Cheshire rain tomorrow and please give a few quid HERE. In this podcast I look at one company, at hard facts about its share ownership, about its sales about what it has not said and at peer group valuation analysis. At the end of it all, I challenge anyone to disagree with the conclusion that the shares will collapse over the coming months from 63.5p to buttons. Re the declaration, the share I own is Imperial Brands (IMB).

Kier Starmer may get thumped in Hartlepool but he's a shoo-in in Gaza West - his Israel baiting is revolting

Kier Starmer is acting to purge some of the more extreme anti-semites from the Corbyn era from the Labour Party and that must be applauded. However, in his comments on events in Israel this week he sends out a clear dog whistle call to folks who hate Israel, many of whom do so because they hate the Jews. And that is one reason why, for many of us, Labour, a party where many of its foot soldiers snigger about those who respect the Union flag but put a Palestinian flag on their twitter account, remains beyond the pale.

And thus what could be better than a party in the village square organised by my good friends Vangelis and Nicho the Communist to raise funds for their new youth club and to cheer everyone up. Being British we arrived early on that Friday evening. well, we thought eight o’clock was quite late but almost nobody was there so it was early.

As Labour took another hammering in its Northern heartlands on Thursday I wonder where Polly Toynbee of the Guardian was watching: her multi million quid North London residence or her estates in Tuscany. Toynbee typifies those from the new left who dominate the media and the Labour party in her thoughts and in that she never mixes socially with the smelly, dirty, racist, ignorant working classes for whom she pretends to fight for but actually despises for their “thought crimes.”

Verditek – what will the auditors say about the carrying value of inventory if the company has not already gone bust?

The cash position  at Verditek (VDTK) must be really grim by now. Cash balances at 31 December – just a couple of months after a £3.5 million fund raise – were just £1.7 million. Still not generating any revenues at all, my guess is that cash is now well under £1 million and heading south rapidly. As the auditors consider 2020 accounts they must surely be insisting that there is a material uncertainty as to whether this can be viewed as a going concern or not. But there is another million dollar question.

Labour took a hammering across the UK last night and in this podcast I consider this rather crude analogy first used by one of its own leaders with regard to how it views the folks who were its core supporters. with reference to Northern Ireland and Jersey I argue that it cannot close the gap that now exists with its core and as such it can never hope to regain power and in Wales – as has already happened in Scotland – it may well become an irrelevancy. I refer to this piece on Tory sleaze from last week. One day that will matter but maybe it won’t for a very long time.

BREAKING: Bidstack – Confirmation of Stifel forecast slash & breach of AIM Rules 10 & 11

Needless to say, the morally bankrupt PR firm of Buchanan has still not replied to an email from Tuesday night regarding forecasts for its technically insolvent client Bidstack (BIDS). Presumably it is working hard finding a journalist to smear and that is its priority. When Steph Watson says she will reply to an email what she clearly means is “I am a lying PR harpy and will do nothing of the sort.” But, without the assistance of mendacious Steph, I now have confirmation that house broker Stifel has indeed slashed forecasts which appears to be a clear breach of AIM Rules 10 and 11.

Shame on all those such as Zak Mir who have promoted this bag of excrement for today’s trading update was a true horror both in terms of what it said bit also what it did not say.  Starting with the latter: this is a trading update which admits that sales are SFA but made no mention of losses or the cash position. Why not? I put it to you that if the company was drowning in cash it would shout about it.  That it does not mention it at all screams out the possibility that another bailout placing is on the way. Then there is what is said which is almost as bad.

Has Bidstack issued a horrible warning but only for clients of Stifel – does AIM Regulation give a feck as insolvency looms?

If there is a material change in your trading outlook, as an AIM Company you have a duty to inform the market at once, as per AIM Rules 10 and 11. But if you are Lyin’ James Draper of Bidstack (BIDS) you do not give a flying fuck about the rules. So has he issued a horrible lack of sales/increased losses warning by simply speaking to the analyst at house broker Stifel who slashes forecasts? Is it the case that as of Friday clients of Stifel heard the bad news, other morons who owned the stock did not. And the news, is rumoured to be dire. Cretinous low grade PR firm Buchanan, employers of the journalist smearing fraudsters PR of choice Henry Harrison-Topham, are failing to answer emails or calls on this matter but should get off its fat collective arse and issue an RNS or at least say this is not true if it is not true.

That makes its September 28 2020 RNS claimed booked revenues of £2.2 million and its interim results published on January 29 2021 claiming H1 sales of £386,000 also a lie. Directors have dumped millions of pounds worth of shares at prices inflated by those lies which makes this a fraud.

But even he must find it mildly disconcerting that many of his fellow countrypeople might think that my portly pal could be pregnant. We reactionary conservatives reckon that only women get pregnant but in Canada such a statement would be condemned as alt right freakery and – amid a twitter storm – there would be demands for instant career ending sanctions.

Then I look at Nightcap (NCAP) and the disgrace of its IPO on the AIM sewer becomes even more disgraceful after today’s expose HERE.  Tomorrow a modest 15 mile Woodlarks training walk is planned. we are at more than 33% of the Rogue Bloggers target but 94% of you are yet to donate. Go on, please give generously today HERE.

Legendary Bear Raider John Hempton on why fraud flourishes

John operates largely in Australia and writes about why fraud flourishes in Oz although he misses out the obvious point that half of the population there have criminal genes.  But what the man behind Bronte Capital says about life down under must surely ring more than a few bells back in the UK. He opines:

The trials of John Story – is he the forced seller at Asimilar?

The shock suspension of All Active Asset (AAA), the plaything of foul mouthed troll and penny share huckster Chris Akers, was especially painful for one shareholder – the proven liar John Story as he faced big margin calls in the fraud Zoetic (ZOE). How to meet those margin calls? Well I have established that he is on a lock in at Cellular Goods (CBX) with his 15 million shares. Has he stuck to that lock in? Enquiries continue. If he has sold even one share then he needs to issue a TR1 as he is on 3% and that would be a bit embarrassing given the lock in.

ADVFN – Clem Chambers running scared of a putsch & possibly the biggest joke in the history of awards

Yesterday I speculated at great length about the possibility that Israeli brain box Yair Tauman with a just sub 19% stake in ADVFN (AFN) might be able to call an EGM to oust the board led by Clem Chambers. It seems that King Clem agrees with my analysis and is running scared. Today he announced that he had exercised 411,473 options at 14p taking his stake up to 1.014 million shares or 3.88%.

Leverage can hurt bulls as well as bears – watch Zoetic collapsing

Given that it has lied on an industrial scale to investors, regulators and consumers and managed first half sales of just £54,000, I think it will not surprise anyone terribly that I view the fair value of shares in Zoetic International (ZOE) as 0p. But I published all the evidence of the malfeasance and parlous financials and the shares still headed to well over 100p valuing this company at more than £200 million. That was two months ago. Now they are 57p to sell and falling fast. If you can short you should do so as this should be a penny stock really very soon.

But, as a loyal shareholder, I am not selling at today’s 17.6p (although I paid sub 4p) after a Zambia copper update which was everything I could have asked for and more. These shares could be 40p+ by some stage in 2022 if Bird does the decent thing and walks. So why the excitement?

Does the tide of Tory sleaze matter? As ever, the late Christopher Booker has the answer

Gosh I miss my late uncle Chris and our hour long, weekly, chats that would just go on and on skipping from topic to topic almost seamlessly. He may have founded Private Eye but we both did the jokes. We both have a history of falling out with folks and made sure that we had no such bust ups so if we disagreed as we did just now and again there was always a workaround. So we disagreed on Brexit as he regarded me as a “no deal” hard line fruitcake and I wore that badge with honour. But rather than debate it we just agreed that Theresa May was the worst Prime Minister in history, laughed and moved on. Back in the nineties those chats would see us spending some time on Tory sleaze. You remember that MP who shared a bed with another chap and said he was doing it to save money? The jokes wrote themselves back then.

To be fair I never said that my target for this fraud was 4.3p, I just explained how, if you made wildly optimistic assumptions about current year sales then on a read across from Love Hemp 4.3p was fair value. I actually think 0p is fairer as Zoetic International (ZOE) is a fraud which will eventually run out of other people’s money. But a corporate deal in the US suggests yesterday that, maybe, fair value is 0.5p.

Once upon a time there was only one CBD company listed in the UK, Zoetic (ZOE). It lied to investors, regulators and customers and was pumped by unscrupulous investors and PR veterans of the China fraud scams and its rarity value and the lamentable failure of the woke dullards at the FCA to address all that lying, saw the shares ramped to ludicrous levels. But now more CBD businesses are listing and that throws a spotlight on valuations. The clear read across implication is that Zoetic shares are going to crash.

Luckily Aquis has no standards and so Lenigas Cuba listed there. Of course it ended in tears. But that established that Aquis has no qualms about quite appalling greed. Take NFT Investments.

But as I pointed out yesterday there is, despite Ricketts’ misleading RNS claims – no scientific study on humans to show that they either stop one human transmitting covid to another but, worse still, there is no proof they do not harm wearers. It gets worse: there is evidence from a scientific study that they may well harm wearers which is why Spain, Ireland and Canada have already moved to ban and recall such products.

There will be those who believe that Sinn Fein, always the political wing of the blood soaked IRA, is somehow not toxic, that it is a respectable political party. Regrettably more folks either side of the border which separates God’s chosen land of Ulster from the Republic of Ireland seem to think that Sinn Fein are not bad folks. Oh Gerry Adams (who led Sinn Fein while sitting on the top table of the IRA) just send out more Easter Eggs you sweet old man. Think again folks, as you watch this sickening interview from this week with Sinn Fein leader Mary Lou McDonald.

Photo Article: Training walk No 4 for Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks - 20 miles

It was 13 days ago that I did this walk – just over 20 miles. Last week my woke snowflake daughter Olaf joined me so I did just 11 miles not wishing to be accused of breaching her human rights with an act of patriarchal oppression.  The route is the same as ever: along our fields by the Dee in Wales, the Bridge over to England and then walking the English side of the Dee towards Chester and back. This walk saw me end up walking past some of the smaller houses belonging to the Duke of Westminster on his extensive lands by the Dee. It does make you think a bit about the nature of inherited wealth.

Video: Leverage will Create the Largest Global Financial Crisis in History

Asset manager David Hunter does not mince his words. Equities are in a late stage melt up but will then, he predicts, fall by 80% as we go from a global deflationary bust followed by an inflationary recovery cycle. We will see dollar weakness now followed by a big dollar rally during the bust.

BREAKING: Why Neill Ricketts is such a prick or so badly advised by 9th rate lawyers in trying to gag a Bulletin Board critic – case precedent

Yesterday I published the fascist lawyer’s letter sent by 10th tier law firm Hugh Paddison of Cheltenham and explained why on matters of libel it makes no case at all – this is merely an attempt to bully a Bulletin Board poster into silence.

The Fraud [email protected] Capital – joke acquisition non update

It is to be hoped that the FCA takes a dim view of a company that is now shown to have serially deceived investors as to the size of its client pipeline, so inflating the share price allowing directors such as chairman Dominic White to dump millions of pounds worth of shares on dumb punters. That company is, of course, the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) and if staff at the British regulator were not sio busy jerking off on ESG porn they would have shut this con down ages ago.

Kevin Maguire a St Georges Day knobhead in action on a day I celebrate by trying to get Northern Ireland tickets

It may have escaped your attention if you are not a member of the GAWA or do not know what it is, but for the first time ever, the Northern Ireland Women’s Team has qualified for a major tournament. And thus. this St George’s Day I celebrate by starting down the path to get tickets for Euro 2022 to introduce my daughter to Northern Irish football. As is the norm I don’t pay any great attention to the English National day but I certainly take no offence from its celebration. My wife, on the other hand, may have parents born in India but identifies, on the census, as do most folks born in Nottingham, as English. For our kids growing up in Wales this will all be rather confusing.

The Guardian on the late George Floyd...oh please you cannot be serious?

Guardian journalist Joanna Walters clearly has a very severe case of white liberal guilt. Her headline on the late George Floyd is simply unbelievable. Yes Mr Floyd was murdered by a cop who has rightly been found guilty and who I am glad to see rotting in jail. The murder was both astonishing and appalling. But that does not make Mr Floyd a reincarnation of Moma Theresa. The Guardian’s desire to beatify him is just vaguely sickening.

North America's naivete about the IRA and Ireland - ET Canada on Mountbatten

 Lord Mountbatten was murdered by the IRA. And a day after the funeral of his nephew, Prince Philip, Sinn Fein has now apologised. That is in effect an IRA apology for you and I know the two are one and the same. Sinn Fein stands in elections, the IRA butchers men, women and children, runs drugs, robs banks and has a penchant for sexual abuse. But they share personnel, aims and beliefs. The blood dripping from the hands of Sinn Fein is the same blood the IRA spilled. Yet in North America they just cannot see that.

I thought I’d put a link up on the village facebook group so that others might ponder such petty silliness and how it is not a great reflection on the way some in Wales treat, what they term, newcomers.

BREAKING: The Letter confirming FCA Criminal Investigation into Julie Meyer MBE – now Greek Politicians lured into her web

Thanks to Winnileaks I have a dynamite letter from the FCA to one of Julie Meyer’s 32 unpaid, and thus ex, lawyers confirming what is an ongoing criminal investigation. But first, how did she get her MBE?  Answer: she had political friends including the late Paddy Pantsdown and Liam Fox MP. Someone high up nominated her. Then, as her UK flagship Ariadne Capital collapsed into administration, she fled to Malta where she also had political pals. That was until the criminal charges were filed and she ran out of other folks’ cash. Then it was Switzerland and Greece where again leading politicians have fallen for her charms. But do they know about the UK criminal investigation?

A villager snitches on me to Wrexham Council – but to no affect as I let rip

“I am here from the Council” said the young lady wearing fishnet stockings and a short skirt. “Hello…Oh yes” said I  in my best Leslie Phillips accent, wondering why she wanted to see me.  The awful truth is that someone here in the last village in Wales, has snitched to the planning department about lorry loads of rubble and earth coming down the lane to the Welsh Hovel, suggesting I may be threatening the flood plain. And so, I was honoured with a site visit.

BREAKING: High Street Grp – the £60m scandal the FCA is failing on (again) – now PWC’s damning Resignation letter emerges

I first warned you all that this company was insolvent 360 days ago. The FCA has done nothing and £60 million of investors’ money will soon go up in smoke. But as the chaps at the FCA know, it is only the lower middle and working classes who buy mini-bonds so who cares? Two days ago I revealed that a second auditor in 7 months had quit. Now the resignation letter from the first to walk, PWC, has finally appeared at Companies House. It is so truly damning that even the woke dullards at the FCA should take note.

Versarien – are graphene-enhanced face masks bad for your health? A problem in Canada for loathsome Neill Ricketts

I may have given the impression that Canada was a semi-socialist woke hell hole run by the biggest poltroon on this planet where within a few years the economy will be such a trainwreck that folks like Darren Atwater will be forced to eat their cats. If so, I’d like to apologise, for Canada is a progressive paradise run by a visionary statesman, Mr Justin Trudeau, who wears his Eid socks to the Pride parade, or vice versa (I forgot); a chap who is eerily reminiscent of FDR or Churchill. Where this dynamic and free nation leads, the rest of the world surely will follow which is bad news for loathsome promoter Neill Ricketts and Versarien (VRS).

Photo from the latest Woodlarks training walk of ShareProphets Reader Robert Lewis.

That means one more person for the “having to talk to Dan Levi rota” so spreading the misery of hearing about the evils of Brexit and why disgraced Guardian fantasist Carole Cadwalladr is a genius, more widely. That is all good news. But think of how we will suffer on the day, even if it is now for less than 2 hours each and make a donation HERE. Meanwhile we continue with our training walks.

Link Accused of Throwing Good Money after Bad at Former Neil Woodford Fund

Most recently, it has announced that it has invested some of the fund’s cash into a company called Mafic and the mainstream media has been having a field day as cash supposedly due to be handed out to beleaguered Woodford investors has headed in the opposite direction.

Photo Article - the melted Chocolate Easter Egg from Amazon, rotten customer service

Joshua’s dinosaur Easter Egg arrived c/o Amazon the Wednesday before Easter and within 48 hours of order. But the one for the Mrs arrived late in the afternoon of Easter Sunday. I opened the box when I returned home from Woodlarks training walk number 3, 16 miles of pain, and I was already in a foul mood thanks to the purple window when I discovered an egg that had more than half melted, as you can see below.  It was too late to find a replacement but the Mrs was surprisingly understanding as I had prepared three amazing suppers for what was also her Birthday weekend and some spectacular brunches. So notwithstanding one stand up row with a mad lefty pal of hers who was staying for the weekend, I was in the good books of the boss and she empathised on the egg. But it got worse from there as far as Amazon is concerned.

The good news is that we should be up to 12 rogue bloggers for Woodlarks by the end of the weekend. The bad news is that Lucian Miers has walked the course and it is indeed 34 miles, not the usual 33, and the last 1.5 miles are all uphill, just when one is ready to collapse. And thus I must train ever harder as this walk is the most important I have ever done and I must finish.

Picture Article from the Welsh Hovel - still seeing through a purple mist

This is the horror that awaited me as I returned to the Welsh Hovel from a 16 mile training walk for Woodlarks last Sunday. The Mrs had ordered that the window be pained Tollar Royal which is a blue with a purple tinge. Rather than order the paint requested, the painter went to a shop selling that paint and mixed his own which is, as you can see, not blue at all. And apparently when he asked the Mrs how it looked she just said okay, not daring to say, as I would have done, “fucking ghastly”. So now this listed building has the sort of window you’d see on a Shoreditch gay bar. Suffice to say, I was not best pleased as I explained the situation to the painter’s boss.

Letter to FCA – The FRAUD [email protected] Capital and 3 more major deceptions of investors

That [email protected] Capital (SYME) is a fraud is beyond all doubt. Put simply, it has deceived gullible investors on an industrial scale allowing directors to sell vast numbers of shares at grossly inflated prices. They get to become multimillionaires as a result while mug punters will lose everything when Supply finally admits that it has run out of other people’s money. Which it already has but has yet to admit to. Yesterday, evidence emerged of THREE more monster deceptions via RNS which pumped the stock allowing insiders to sell. I have written to the FCA as you can see below.

Versarien – there will not be a year-end trading statement but what would it say?

Let’s be clear. Although it might be deemed best practice for a company the size of Versarien (VRS) to issue a year-end trading update, there is no legal obligation for it to do so. And the only best practice Versarien adheres to is in industrial-scale share issuance and deceptive share ramping activities. Had it won any material business at all, new contracts for graphene which actually generated real sales – as opposed to taxpayer handouts from his Tory chums – you can bet the ranch that loathsome Neill Ricketts would have been itching to shout about them via an RNS. He hasn’t so there are not any.

The Mrs abandoned our church in Wales, as it voluntarily shut its doors completely during lockdown, heading to a small Methodist, mask-free chapel in England where they have sung throughout. She was raised a Methodist so it is perhaps going home, not an outright defection. The place has an active Sunday school which Joshua loves and so she is making a permanent switch. On Friday, I went there for a treasure hunt for the kids. Thirty adults and their kids mixed freely, without masks, in a field and also inside the chapel. We shook hands. We stood together. It was life as part of a Christian community, or indeed a community of humans, as it really should be. But what of me and worship?

After Everyone's Invited, will Warwick School's new Headmaster deal with the Geoffrey Eve abuse & other sexual abuse & the cover up, here's the old one washing his hands of it

It appears that after two years in the job, Deneal Smith is no longer headmaster at Warwick School, where 43 years ago sadistic brute Geoffrey Eve, a serial physical abuser of young boys, threw my head against the wall not once but twice. I reprint below Dr Smith’s last email to me, washing his hands of the whole affair. Perhaps new HM, James Barker, himself an OW, might – in light of revelations of Everyone’s Invited – actually deal with this issue.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why IQE's valuation is a rum 'n' coke, 2 acid tests for the FCA and talking to the great man of mining analysis

I end with a few notes on Woodlarks. There are now 7 walkers confirmed – please do make a donation HERE. Then I discuss 2 acid tests today for the FCA[email protected] Capital (SYME) and Lyin’ Chris Cleverly’s planned RTO into Stranger Holdings (STHP). Then I look at St James House (SJH) and wonder if the taxman needs to have a butcher’s at 4 of its disposals involving John Botros. Then it is onto IQE (IQE) and why Malcolm Stacey and thirsty Paul Scott are wrong. Finally a look at Jubilee Metals (JLP). I look at the fundamentals after today’s interims and conclude that the shares should be well North of 20p. Then I discuss the matter with the world’s leading analyst of PGM stocks beginning with J for his input.

AsiaMet Resources- Is it run by total #ARS (es)? (TW Note, No! Peter is talking out of his ARS)

First it is Peter Brailey: My colleagues Tom Winnifrith and Gary Newman have provided opinion on the investment case of AsiaMet Resources (ARS) for some time. I think it is fair to say both see good potential upside. I remained on the fence watching. But I do see downside on the company’s social media strategy and I do not like it at all. It’s made me get off the fence – I will not invest until the company acts with a moral code I can agree with.

Explosive Dossier: surely the FCA and SEC must act to stop the backdoor stockmarket comeback of Chris Cleverly,

When your cousin James is a Foreign Office minister and tipped as a future Prime Minister and you mix freely among the Westminster great and good you might think that you are above the law. That certainly seems to be the case for Chris Cleverly who has spent the past five years lying to investors and raising cash on the back of it. Now he has a new con which he is trying to float on the Standard List of the London Stock Exchange via a backdoor reverse takeover into an insolvent company, and he has now roped in a US listed company which is already lying to its investors. The FCA and SEC must act at once. Cleverly’s crime spree started at AIM listed African Potash (AFPO).

St James House - disastrous interims part 2 now it's death spiral ahoy

As well as disastrous, red ink soaked finals, St James House (SJH) published its interims, to July 31 2020, today and revenue was up an impressive 51% on comparative interims to £641,000; however, administrative expenses of £874,000 resulted in an operating loss of £567,000. St James House (SJH) was only able to report a profit of £192,000 due to the profit of £759,000 for disposal of Market Access Ops Ltd for consideration of £1.  As I highlighted in my note of February 2020, I struggle to understand why Mr John Botros would buy a loss-making company for £1 as it came with net liabilities of £759,000.

Block Commodities, joke pot deals, a vile ex Tory MP, Tatnall & Longley & Pre Genius Steffi – the party from hell

As we consider Batley Grammar and the Mohammed cartoon, here’s the late Christopher Booker on Charlie Hebdo in 2015

I sometimes find myself searching my emails for something or other and stumble on something completely unexpected. Tonight I stumble on the raw text of what my uncle, the late Christopher Booker, submitted to the Sunday Telegraph for January 16 2015 after the Charlie Hebdo massacre. I am not sure if the Torygraph tweaked it but here is the original and in exposing the pious hypocrisy of the great and good back then, we might all reflect on matters such as the drowning silence of the left in defence of free speech in Bradford today. But also, as Chris notes, on why certain sections of the Moslem community do feel so justifiably angry and that can vent in various ways. I commend to you a great piece of journalism.

Greedy Nurses do not deserve a 1% pay rise, let alone the 15% they demand: they should take a pay freeze like other public sector workers

When I was growing up, the majority of the population wanted to bring back the death penalty and my Guardian-reading teachers would explain why this was a great example of why we needed elected representatives to moderate the unhealthy views of the dirty plebs. Or, as you and I might see it, to block the democratic will of the people because the liberal intelligentsia always knows best. In 2016, the people were allowed their say on Brexit and, bloody hell, the dirty peasants went and did the wrong thing just showing that decision making should be left in the hands of a small elite.

Patsy is a real climate activist from Australia. My guess is that means she does not have a proper job. But in the tweet below, she explains the climate crisis. Last year, all that CO2 we emit caused a lack of rain and global warming so there were bushfires.  Now that very same CO2 is causing too much rain so there are floods. Got it? Whatever the weather, man-made Co2 emissions and no other factor is to blame.  You just cannot argue with the Ministry of Truth, can you?

The media and Joe Biden’s failing health – another massive fraud on the American electorate

Back in 2016, some of us of a conservative leaning questioned whether the Democrat candidate for President, crooked Hillary Clinton, had health issues.

And then crooked Hillary collapsed in New York and they were forced to admit that we might have been right all along. I remember doing an interview with that fine news channel Russia Today discussing that very issue of the media corruption and Hillary’s health. What is it with the Dems and picking old folks with health issues?

From IRA victim Máiría Cahill another poem that won no prize in the Martin McGuinness Peace Foundation contest

Máiría Cahill waived anonymity to expose her sexual abuse at the hands of the IRA. She is a brave person unlike Easter Egg distributor Gerry Adams and his utterly unlamented late partner in crime Martin McGuinness. The “Peace Foundation” honouring the Butcher of Londonderry, who almost certainly did personally kill people for the IRA, is running a poetry contest. Sentimental fools such as Joe Biden or Owen Jones who like to romanticise the evil Fenian bastards should read Cahill’s entry which, oddly, has won no prize. The BBC which frequently rewrites history so that our kids can be taught a false narrative should broadcast this poem. Everyone should read this poem.

What does the perfect fraudster look like and how does he like to be depicted? Earlier I showed why Buy 2 Let cars was a ponzi, a fraud, where £35 million of punters cash will almost certainly go to money heaven and where the FCA was – yet again – criminally negligent in ignoring my warnings. Now meet Reginald Larry-Cole  the crook behind it. Born in Sierra Leone he has an Atilla from a new University.

Screw the plebs, it is not as if senior FCA staffers have any social contact with the dirty oiks, is it? Like the 14 year old girls in Rotherham, they are just trash. They don’t matter. As for Buy to Let, its boss, Reginald Larry-Cole, might tick all the FCA’s diversity boxes but he is a crook. He needs to go to jail.

We have seen this sort of time in history before but it is rare. Elon Musk has just filed with the SEC to change his job title to “Techno-king Tesla”. His FD is now “Master of Coin”. These guys are smoking their own bullshit. And bullshit it is because Musk is an industrial scale liar but, for now, the faithful do not care.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - would I get into INSEAD with my reasoning on this?

I start with a few words on Greece and lockdown as per this article from my own website.  Then I discuss why I ignore broker share price targets and then the use of the sort of reasoning I’d need to show to get into INSEAD to do an MBA with relation to claims made by companies. Those two sections cover Ariana (AAU) and Remote Monitored Systems (RMS). I also look at MyHealthChecked (MHC) and at Catenae (CTEA).

Amigo regulatory setback but bear raider Evil Knievil still reckons shares could gain 150% within weeks!

Shares in loan shark Amigo (AMGO) are down by 12% today to 12p on what appears to be, well what most certainly is, a regulatory setback. But one loyal shareholder, the infamous short seller Simon Cawkwell, aka Evil Knievil, is not deterred and tells me that the shares will still hit 20p and could even go to 30p. The setback first:

We warned about SIX high profile mini-bond schemes – now another of the suspect six goes bust, another FCA fail

The pattern has always been the same. We issued explicit warnings about London & Capital Finance, Blackmore Bond, Bassett and Gold, Buy 2 Let Cars, The High Street Group and Wellesley Finance. Companies such as my beloved West Ham United screwed over their fans and continued to support these rogues. The FCA was too busy publishing papers on the gender pay gap, Brexit, climate change or LGBT awareness to do anything until tens of millions of pounds had been lost. But heck it is was only the great unwashed who suffered.

Interim results from Nightcap – it is what Dragon's Den star Sarah Willingham does NOT say that reveals her fantasy

This really is my last word on ghastly Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle and her dim husband said that their lie-packed interview with billionaire virtue signaller Oprah Winfrey would be their “last word” on the matter. That now seems to be a lie too as they are happily letting it be known to pet poodles in the press their latest thoughts and feelings.  Just when I thought that I could not view the couple as even more despicable, I find that I do. I suppose as a Republican I should not really care but as a human I find myself feeling ever warmer thoughts towards the rest of the Royal Family. Maybe this is long Covid and I cannot think straight but after 53 years as a Republican, I really do feel rather sorry for the rest of the Windsor family.

The graph that shows lockdowns don't work as EU nations blunder back into them

The graph below is pretty clear. Having lockdowns as a way to fight covid does not work. It looks at age adjusted excess deaths per million. You will see that Sweden, no lockdown, does pretty well, far better than the UK with a draconian lockdown. Florida with a very lax lockdown does marginally worse that California with a very tight lockdown, but not that much worse. Lockdown jihadists, mainly from the “tolerant” left, have repeatedly warned that Republican run Florida was heading for Armageddon. Many of those fanatics lived in New York with a far more draconian lockdown. Look how it fared…

But before the late Mr Castle thinks his job is over, I sense Umuthi Healthcare (UHS) may also get to meet him Norris and, of course, Cheryl Baker, formerly of Bucks Fizz. In doing so it will show that however many women the FCA promotes it is still useless.

I am a lifelong Republican but if Meghan is the alternative…

I always will be a Republican. I can see no reason why the Royal Family should exist in its current constitutional position. Having said all of that, if there has to be a Monarch, the one we have and her consort Phil the Greek are, without doubt, the best one could wish for. As human beings, they are thoroughly admirable.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The demise of Greensill & running with the mob in a time of financial frenzy

The first point is of interest with reference to the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME). the second refers to the response to my comment on suspending covid testing stocks which has produced some interesting comments as you can see below. I once ran with the mob, shouting “Bring back Monty”. I regret it now.

Verditek – time for a lack of trading update & update on perilous cash position

I hope that AIM Regulation is taking seriously the way that Verditek (VDTK) announced a series of EIGHT contract wins last summer to ramp its shares ahead of a bailout placing in October only to admit, incrementally, that almost none, if not none of the contracts had actually landed. Verditek has done this several times before and needs to be publicly admonished if it is not to commit securities fraud in this way again.  But there is another matter…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Don't do your Leni-maths on the Covid testing stocks but other folks will!

I start with a reference to the covid testing stocks and the £8 billion Government tender I revealed earlier HERE. Then it is onto how companies are circumventing rules about ramping their shares with lies by getting shareholders to do the pumps via folks like Justin the Clown and Zak Mir. The FCA, AIM Regulation and corporate advisors need to stop washing their hands onto a range of abuses by shareholders and deal with it.

The £8 billion webpage that will create a disorderly market in all Covid testing stocks Monday – suspend the lot

BREAKING: ShareProphets won't be around too much longer - Tom Winnifrith going to prison for 7 years with "unlimited fine"

Well you heard it here first. Actually you did not.As you can see below this report comes from an impeccable source: twitter where Jack Dorsey et al ALWAYS act to censor fake news so you can rely on twitter to give you the truth. Perhaps that is why 26 folks liked this tweet and 1 has retweeted it. Sadly for those 28 losers ( the author, RT and likes) this is demonstrable fantasy.


[email protected] Capital (SYMEshares were suspended by the FCA at my instigation, firstly for failing to publish accounts on time after it changed the year end to cover up lies it had told.  And then as the FCA started investigating those lies and many others, most notably its fraudulent prospectus in which it overstated net assets by 99% and its bogus 2020 interims in which it booked fake sales and its RNS of 28 September 2020 announcing more fake sales and director share dumping on the back of those lies.

Winnifrith family history - another photo of a mystery woman emerges

This small set of photos were in a set of papers relating to the affairs of my father’s late nephew John Stafford who was another family member gripped by the mystery of Edith Maude Winnifrith (EMW): who was she?  Yesterday I posted a photo of a baby which came from EMW and which I can now date pretty accurately. The dress worn by the woman holding the baby is, according to the leading expert on Victorian dresses, from 1868-70 but it looks tight and ill fitting so may be a few years old. The photographer, Thomas Prothero started business in Bristol in 1875 or maybe a bit earlier. I have a submission he posted from his Wine Street Bristol address for a Royal Photographic Society exhibition in September 1875. EMW said she was born in 1875 though her birth certificate is a forgery so I assume the photo of the baby she kept was of herself, why else keep it? So who is the lady below?

I may be wrong, only a DNA test can resolve a mystery that has now haunted three generations once and for all. If you search google for pictures of Edith Wingfield Digby you will find an image of a stout old lady, the patron of several homes she founded in Dorset to care for fallen women. She had an interest in the subject. But there is just one I discovered of Edith as a younger lady which you can see below.

But now, after just a week, we get the first announcement of just mind-blowing bollocks showing what a total spoof this all is.

Richard Poulden - your new hire is bonkers

Yesterday I discussed the shocking share ramp by David Lenigas, Zak Mir, Peterhouse Corporate Finance of Richard Poulden’s Upper Thames Holdings (UPPT), a  business with £300,000 of cash, zero operations, which is capitalised at £6.4 million and still the ramp goes on. Part of that ramp is the hire as a non board advisor of Vinay Gupta, a blockchain guru. Sadly, Mr Poulden your new hire is bonkers. Here is how he explains how we can all become millionaires overnight.

Video: The Financial System is Starting to Crack & the bull case for Platinum

Analyst David H. Smith has a prediction to delight we loyal shareholders in Jubilee Metals (JLP). Nope, not Colin Bird’s resignation but almost as good is his view on the relationship between platinum and palladium and why the prices between them are currently inverted. Platinum being quite rare, it is usually more expensive than both gold and palladium. This trend seems to be in the process, he argues, of returning to normal. Good news.

Getting the Pfizer jab – the experience was truly impressive

I have had Covid so everything tells me that I am already as immune as someone who has had the jab. I believe that jabbing me is therefore utterly pointless. But I can see that if I want to make it to Greece this summer, I will almost certainly need a Covid passport so on that basis I jumped at the chance to get the jab. The NHS showed its usual efficiency by contacting me five times by mail, text (twice) and email about the whole matter.

Considering grief and mourning: is Yasmin Alibhai-Brown the most poisonous woman in Britain?

Nobody knows how they will react to death or to the possibility that a loved one is slipping away – I did not cry at the funeral of my father or as I sat by his bed as he died. I had shed a few tears a few days earlier as I sat in his room with him, lying there in a sleep which could only end one way. I cried buckets at the funeral of my grandmother and also when my cat Kitosh died suddenly. At the funeral of Uncle Chris Booker I think I had a moist eye, nothing more. Does that mean I loved my cat more than my father? Of course not. Grief and knowing you may be close to losing someone hits us in different ways and it is, or should be, a private matter. That brings us to, arguably, the most poisonous woman in Britain today.

Apologies for suggesting that the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) is on the list. It is not. But 974 companies are and are listed below. With bears now an officially endangered species this is going to largely effect bulls. We do not know how big a percent of the equity of the stocks below is owned on margin. In many cases it will be tiny. But in others it will be material and the forced closing of positions in these stocks could have knock on effects throughout the small cap world. Punter x meets his enlarged margin call in one stock by banking gains and selling elsewhere. I do not know how big the ripples will be but I sense it will cause some pain in some quarters. The list is below.

Delingpole was a great friend and ally of my late uncle Christopher Booker and we start and end with him. In between, it’s Neil Woodford, fraud fighting, the corruption of the MSM, death threats, lockdown madness, Wales madness and a disagreement on the enrichment of Ireland.

Jim says that learning from Ron Paul helped him understand the economic system that the world is under, and “The bigger problems facing the U.S. that are internal.” He has been a firm gold and silver believer since 2007, investing in both miners and physical. He says, “People need to make their own choice to have gold and silver as money.”

Thanks to your generosity as a taxpayer, Sheffield Hallam University discovers trans folk trapped at home by public lavatories

The reason that university lecturers need long holidays is that they can publish research. The more research they publish, the more funding their university gets so the more they get promoted. Being a good and dedicated teacher really is not part of this process. Of course, all research must be peer group approved to get published and in the woke culture at Britain’s Marxist madrassas I guess you know what that leads to. So let’s go to Sheffield Hallam University where taxpayer cash has been wisely invested in a gender driven study of public toilets.

Peel Street Wrexham – the sheer stupidity of Mark Drakeford and the woke Welsh political and media class

The Welsh Government has found £170,000, in these times of austerity, to spunk on a report into statues, buildings, and street names that are linked to slavery or are racist in other ways. Naturally, folks like Sir Francis Drake, Nelson and Wellington are all in the firing line because their tangential or fairly minor connections to the slave trade must completely overshadow matters such as saving the nation from invasion and foreign domination. But it is my local town of Wrexham which shows up the monumental stupidity of this exercise, masterminded by the certifiably insane first minister Mark Drakeford and rubber stamped by the grossly overpaid pygmies of the Sennedd, in greatest detail.

Hang on Mr Pleb:  members of the establishment do have to look after each other don’t they? Most senior civil servants went to the same Oxbridge colleges and public schools as most of the cabinet. If you can’t feather the nests of your chums what’s the point of public life?  In another fuck you to blue collar Tory voters in the so called red wall seats, the wretched Tories snuck out a disgraceful U-Turn just before the weekend.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: what can be done to stop corrupt and bad folks like Lucy Burton and Neil Woodford?

This podcast is all about the Woodford scandal of today. The corruption of the Sunday Telegraph in trading a scoop for dishonest journalism and the scandal that the disgraced fund manager may be back after less than 20 months of not screwing around with other folks’ cash. Why must people like Lucy and Neil be stopped and who will stop Neil? Lucy, I fear, is destined for great things in the corrupt world of the deadwood press.

Shares in the fraud [email protected] Capital (SYME) have now remained suspended for 16 days as the FCA investigation into numerous irregularities continues.

Red Rock Resources – another placing: I buy more

I am massively ahead on the Red Rock Resources (RRR) shares I bought at about the 0.625p offer price when we tipped the shares. Though initially frustrated by news that the company has raised another £1 million at 1.05p, I have considered the rationale and I have bought a few more shares today after recording an interview with Andrew Bell you can watch HERE. Here is why you should also buy the shares.

Corrupt & twisted Journalism from Lucy Burton as disgraced and bent fund manager Neil Woodford announces comeback with more lies

Lucy Burton of the Sunday Telegraph will this morning be celebrating her scoop of the year. It may win her prizes such is the corruption of modern journalism. In a faustian deal she gets to break the news that disgraced and crooked fund manager Neil Woodford is planning a comeback. In return she publishes a blow off interview in which Woodford paints himself as the victim of what happened, tells blatent lies and those lies go unchallenged. This is not journalism it is revolting PR ands Ms Burton should be drummed out of the industry. She won’t. She will be praised and promoted. And the deadwood press wonders why it is ever less trusted and its reader numbers slide?

Video: GDX Weakness Signaling StockMarket Crash

Money Manager Steven Van Metre admits that his macro thesis can be wrong in the short to intermediate-term but believes it will play out as interest rates collapse to zero. Those that are bullish on gold miners should also be bullish on bonds. He expects the GDX to fall and explains the relationship between it and the TLT. He believes bonds will rally, GDX will drop much lower, and then he can flip his portfolio into the junior miners. And falling mining equities often are a leading indicator of a coming liquidity event and a move lower by the broader equities.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: giving as good as I get to Craig from the Badger Trust

Craig has been stirred up by the trolls who harass me and my family and has now repeated the defamatory remark that I am encouraging others to harm the frightful pests. The Crime Officer at the Badger Trust is now also demanding that I rewrite articles though I have committed no crime. He is not apologising for making up false allegations about what I wrote.  He is picking on the wrong man on behalf of morons who own shares in Zoetic (ZOE) and [email protected] Capital (SYME). Does the Badger Trust really think that harassing a journalist whose only “crime” is exposing fraud, at the instigation of those supporting those frauds, is a good thing to do? I discuss both companies and the failings of Standard Listings with regards to frauds which they demonstrate in spades. I also look at house prices in London and here in the boonies.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 2 stocks my pension bought today & the pot madness grows

Deep Throat has sent Winnileaks 2 confidential presentations for cannabis IPOs c.o low grade brokers Novum and Peterhouse. Novum bats for the Beckham linked Cellular Goods which I exposed here and it is so sleazy it includes a chart of the share price of the Zoetic (ZOE) fraud as a reason to buy. I discuss these companies as well as the Peterhouse play, Spinnaker Opportunies (SPO). If that opportunity knocks, I’ll pass. I look at Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) and discuss the two shares I bought and why: Red Rock Resources (RRR) and AEX Gold (AEXG).

ShareProphets translation service – Bidstack ramp ahead of placing

Following its shocking lack of 2020 AND 2021 profits and disappearing cash warning on February 1, Bidstack (BIDS) is close to running on vapours with net current assets set to go negative by the end of May and cash set to run out before then. Oh dear. What to do? Ramp the shares ahead of a discounted placing from the Nomad and broker which signed off on the grossly misleading pre-Christmas trading statement, Stifel.
