Last night, Argo Blockchain (ARB) announced a bookbuild and Primary Bid offer to raise £26.8 million at 200p. It was hugely oversubscribed. This sector is hot and both retail and institutional investors could not get enough. Good luck to them all.

I have today been distracted by rising flood waters which you can see here and which I start the podcast discussing. Then it is onto [email protected] Capital (SYME), Versarien (VRS), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) and Westminster Group (WSG).

I start with the 12 day of Christmas , what it means and what will happen here. Then it is on to events in Georgia, gold & the US economy. Then in today’s bout of market madness I look at Bidstack (BIDS), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Online Blockchain (OBC) and at Zenith Energy (ZEN).

I am always happy to assist my good friends round at the FCA and start with this and Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer. I move on to Neil Woodford and Kier (KIE), then Yourgene (YGEN) and a long chat with Adam Reynolds, Bluejay Mining (JAY), Argo Blockchain (ARB) and Eqtec (EQT).

I explain the nature of the fraud and why I am so livid. My anger is compounded by Wrexham Council and its inability to sign roadworks which wasted half an hour of my life. Then I find I agree with David Lenigas on something: can life get any worse? I discuss Argo BlockChain (ARB), PureCircle (PURE), Cabot Energy (VAB), Watchstone (WTG) and Toople (TOOP). Maybe I have a second question for Neil Woodford, will anyone pay £250 for me to ask it? If you are yet to donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks we are now at £27,000 raised so please chip in HERE.

In today’s bearcast I look at Neil Woodford’s latest woes, Afriag (AFRI) and the vermin like behaviour of its morally bankrupt advisor Peterhouse, Sabien (SNT), Argo Blockchain (ARB) – whose directors are also the sort of filth you scrape off your shoes and 8 Peaks Group (8PG) (ditto). After all of that I ask you to cosnider my weekend training walk HERE and in light of my entirely self inflicted suffering back the Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE

Ahead of lunch with a scouser I encounter someone just out of prison. There you go, life here in the Grim North. I urge you all to follow the lead of Saintly Tech Queen Vin Murria HERE.Greedy AIM bosses screwing shareholders infuriate me and in that vein I cover: Mirriad (MIRI), EVR Holdings (EVRH) and Argo Blockchain (ARB). I also look at FinnCrap (FCAP) where the dam is breaking, Share PLC (SHRE), Frontier Smart Technologies (FST) and Audioboom (BOOM).

Sorry, I know you thought Joshua was better than i was yesterday but it is just me today. Good news arrives in the post here at the Welsh Hovel. I shall be able to vote for Mr Farage in the European Elections and, better still, the Mrs won’t be able to vote for the commies. In the podcast I discuss IQE (IQE) where Malcolm Stacey has it all wrong, Purplebricks (PURP), Eqtec (EQT), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Bushveld Minerals (BMN) and Dev Clever (DEV). And to the 75% of bearcast listeners yet to do the decent thing: we have now raised almost £19,000 for Woodlarks ( and have another £5,500 pledged) so please help us get towards our £40,000 target with a donation today HERE

Richard Jennings is wrong about a good few things. Very wrong. But on certain matters (cats, Greece, donating money to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks) he cannot be faulted. And his logic in arguing to sack the board at Argo Blockchain (ARB) is 100% correct. We will be casting FIML votes in favour of the resolution to do so and we urge all others to do the same. Over to the Align Research boss to explain why:

I have noted before the way that stars of the deadwood press all too often run material which first appeared on ShareProphets, claiming that it is their scoop. Today’s proven liar who shames our noble profession is Jamie Nimmo of the Mail on Sunday who claims to “reveal” that heroin dealer Frank Timis owns 14% of Argo Blockchain (ARB). You can see hios “scoop” below. There is only one problem with Nimmo’s fantasy of breaking a story….

In this podcast I look at the growing mini bond scandal as I flag up another ponzi waiting to collapse today HERE. Then I do a review of my own bull portfolio: Optibiotix (OPTI), Yourgene (YGEN), Concepta (CPT), Big Sofa (BST), Wishbone (WSBN), Kefi (KEFI), Reach4Entertainment (R4E), Falanx (FLX), Fox Marble (FOX), Berekely Energia (BKY) and Argo Blockchain (ARB). I did not mention Fox in the podcast so I'll do a seperate update later. Finally: why have you not joined the roll call of heros HERE? I say a few extra fucktards on that count.

There is a real spring in my step as I consider a new business idea and as the scoops just flow in. I start with Argo Blockchain (ARB), the pot plan and the convicted heroin dealer. Then I out Big Sofa's (BST) new customer. I look at Cabot Energy (CAB) as it dissembles again. I pick a fight with the man Gary Newman thinks is a genius, Andrew Monk, over RedT Energy (RED) and then look at the shock placing byu Independent Oil & Gas (IOG) and where that leaves Rock Rose (RRE).

In today's bearcast I discuss Neil Woodford's spivvery regarding Provident Financial (PFG), have a smoking rumour on Argo Blockchain (ARB) - which we own - comment on I3 Energy (I3E) as it dissembles and look at Quiz (QUIZ) and Sosandar (SOS) as well as Metals Exploration (MTL).

I report to you from the Grim North, a phrase Joshua has learned, much to the annoyance of the Mrs who is, herself, from the great post industrial welfare safari. In this podcast I cover Argo Blockchain (ARB), Optibiotiox (OPTI), Plus 500 (PLUS) and Angus Energy (ANGS).

I am a shareholder in the disaster that is Argo Blockchain (ARB) thanks, I think, to Richard Jennings of Align who suggested I back the IPO. Richard is a bull after today's news but as I explain in bearcast HERE I am not and think he is talking bollocks. But in the interests of balance here is what Richard has to say:

We had the bear case on Argo Blockchain (ARB) from Cynical Bear over the weekend, I corrected a few points in bearcast yesterday but admit that I am clueless about my first blockchain stag. Now we have the bull case, 195% upside from 12.5p. The shares are now 13p. I should caveat that the detailed research report below was penned by the dribbling refugee from the Northern slums, the widely despised Richard "Gollum" Gill but if you are interested...

In today's podcast I look once again at Argo BlockChain (ARB) filling in a few errors and ommissions by Cynical Bear. I cover Ascent Resources (AST) which looks grim, WanDisco (WAND) and Pantheon Resources (PANR) where, once again, I demonstrate what a terribly nice chap I am.

In today's bearcast I start with Argo Blockchain (ARB) and what our coverage shows again. Then it is onto Mark Carney and the Sunday Times talking Project Fear Brexit bollocks on Sterling. Finally David Lenigas, Luke Johnson and why this bubble will not be different to any other.

I start this podcast by reflecting on my biggest investment mistakes of which selling some Optibiotix (OPTI) three years ago must be in the top ten. Stagging Argo Blockchain (ARB) hjas so far been a small mistake but I reflect on that too. Then I reflect on the bombshell by Nigel Somerville on BMR Group (BMR) which shows AIM Regulation not fit for purpose and opens up a mega scandal for WH Ireland (WHI). What happens next i ask, referring to good news on the claims against Cantor Fitzgerald re African Potash (AFPO)

No, I still do not understand this blockchain malarkey but FWIW we have stagged the IPO of Argo Blockchain (ARB) on the standard list today at 16p. The fund raise was just so impressive. Argo set out to raise just £6 million.
