We sped past Jane Austen’s house and into Alton where I bring you a picture of three bears. No delays for the five rogue bloggers and at 4.10 pm, at 23 miles we caught up with 78 year old Fleet Street legend Brian Basham and his trainer J who had left Winchester five hours before us. We are now just nine miles from Woodlarks and the group is again splitting into fast and slow. Amazingly I am in the fast group. If you are yet to donate to the good cause please do so HERE.

We are half way at 17 miles. Brian Basham,who started just after midnight, is now only a couple of miles ahead of the main group so we are stopping for lunch. I wish my friend euro loon Jonathan Price was here joining me at the back as I am struggling a bit and his Guardianista thoughts are always a reason to march on and end the suffering. The next stop is four miles away. It is hard to think beyond that. Again, everyone else eats but I just nibble at my half eaten breakfast sandwich and take on more fluids. I feel rotten. If you have yet to donate to this great cause please do so HERE.

The next target is lunch which is 3 miles away. We are, I calculate, now on track to catch up with Brian Basham at c 3pm. My fellow rogue bloggers, even hungover Lucian Miers and reader N who has an incredibly heavy backpack, are on fine form. I am not. Something is not right and I am not eating just taking on more liquids. I have confessed to Nick Richards at Woodlarks that I might not make it to the finishing line this year. But I try to think about the next three miles which takes us, just, past halfway. Master Miers,a barking mad commie is staying at the back of the group to help me along and entertaining me with his bonkers world view. He makes our in house Euro loon Jonathan Price who normally is at the back with me seem quite sane. Think of my suffering as Master Miers explains why houses belonging to rich people should be nationalised and donate to Woodlarks HERE

Past the beds of watercress we marched and we are now only 15 minutes behind schedule and at the first rest break, the Cricketers Arms. Lucian is apologising for last night’s excess to his Mrs. And Fleet Street legend Brian Basham has been in contact. Two hours ago he was 45 minutes ahead of where we are now. The pursuit is on. If you have yet to donate to this great cause think of the suffering that lies ahead, another 25 miles to go! Please donate HERE

Reader Sam and Andrew Bell are late dropouts. Fleet Street legend Brian Bashan was meant to start at midnight but has gone AWOL. So it is just me, reader N, Steve Moore, and a very hungover Lucian Miers and his communist son. Start delayed by 35 minutes by Lucian’s hangover. Now we are off!

To date, controversial mining boss Bell, has managed 18 miles, 31miles and 3 miles (the last three). But on June 11th he will try to make it 4th time lucky and complete the 34miles Winchester to Woodlarks walk. He joins myself, writers Lucian Miers, Steve Moore, three of our readers Jonathan Price, Nick and Sam plus 80 year old Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham and his long suffering trainer. So that makes nine rogue bloggers so far.

As I am on the Lucian Miers diet I cannot drink anything from the two bottles of damson vodka I decanted the other day. But I had a brief break in the diet, as I plan to step up the excercise part of it next week, as you can see below.

The Fleet Street Legend is up in arms about what he terms a foul smear on him HERE but, as I explain, the old champagne socialist is trying to pull the wool over our eyes with his mockney dining habits. At least the budget means that the champagne for Brian and his comrades will be cheaper but the Budget really is a shower. I explain why. Then it is onto Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Red Rock Resources (RRR) where it looks ever bleaker for my pal Andrew Bell and finally why the Redcentric (RCN) valuation is bonkers.

Clearly Vast Resources (VAST) has misled investors of many years allowing the AIM fat cats who run this company to live the lifestyle at the expense of others. I flagged up one such shocker HERE. Fleet Street legend Brian Basham has tried to get the woke dullards at the FCA and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation to do something but neither seem to care. His latest exchange of emails has fallen into my hands.

Brian Basham sent my most recent article on Vast Resources (VAST) to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation demanding it take action. Its risible response is below followed by another damning missive from the Fleet Street legend.

So says Fleet Street legend Brian Basham. Given that Brian has accused Vast’s (VAST) board of malfeasance and repeatedly called on the useless regulators to act against the company I doubt he has its best interest at heart. This is one case I would love to fight so bring it on Vast: see you Bitchez in Court! So what is Brian’s point?

Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham was once a director of Vast Resources (VAST) but resigned in disgust at what he saw as blatant corporate malfeasance. He has been urging the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and the woke dullards at the FCA to act, so far, without success. His latest missive to the FCA has fallen into the hands of Winnileaks and makes accusations that surely demand a response. It is shocking and it is below.

Fleet Street legend Brian Basham is at war with Marcus Stuttard, his team of Oxymorons at AIM Regulation and the London Stock Exchange over its refusal to tackle what he sees as industrial scale abuse of market rules and shareholders’ funds at Vast Resources (VAST) where he was once a director. His correspondence with the hapless Stuttard, the self-styled Sheriff of AIM, began on April 20:

It is 9:03pm and the Rogue Bloggers are at Farnham station, with only 1.5 miles to go. Now joined by veteran rogue blogger Brian and Lynn Basham, and Lucian’s brother-in-law rejoins us.

Brian Basham has been a legend of journalism and PR for more than fifty years. He moves in the highest circles of the Labour Party, is a serial AIM NED and exposer of corruption, notably the HBOS Reading scandal, and is a man not to be ignored. He has written a letter to AIM Regulation boss, the fake Sheriff of AIM, Mr Marcus Stuttard which I publish in full below as it makes very strong allegations.

Oh dear, oh dear, London’s worst Nomad, Roland “Fatty” Cornish really does have a lot on his plate this morning. I refer not to his third portion of finest Manx Kippers dripping in butter, followed by a quartet of hot crumpets with lashings of strawberry jam. No, he is already in hot water over his advice to ADVFN (AFN) that it should break AIM Rules but now Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham has written to Fatty about another of his cash guzzling and worthless clients, Vast Resources (VAST) and, thanks to Winnileaks, I have that letter.

It may well be that London’s worst Nomad, the Cambridge educated gourmand, Roland “Fatty” Cornish has, in between meals, invented a time machine. Or perhaps he is just not very bright but that the tutors at Pembroke College thought he was a jolly good fellow who had been to the right school and that the College VIII needed a bit of ballast in the middle? I shall leave you to decide.

Shareholders have a right to know exactly why the Fleet Street legend Brian Basham quite as a Non Executive director of ADVFN (AFN) on Friday but despite Basham ensuring that Nomad Roland “fatty” Cornish was kept in the loop, ADVFN has refused to come clean. Luckily, thanks to Winnileaks, I have BOTH resignation letter sent by Basham and what they say is utterly shocking.

We are running articles by supporters of the three main parties in Britain urging you to vote for their party. If you are some SNP supporting sheep molester or cottage burning Taffy and want to bleat about not having your say, tough. This is about parties that are serious across the UK ….and also the Lib Dems. Our first contributor was lifelong Labour supporter Brian Basham, next was writer here and recently elected Conservative Councillor Chris ‘three brains’ Bailey and now it is Woodlarks walker Jonathan Price for the Lib Dems:

76 year old Fleet Street Legend Brian Basham is one of the rogue bloggers walking for Woodlarks this year. At his age that is impressive and is something you should sponsor here. Basham was also an ace spin doctor in his time (notably for Mo Al Fayed) and is enraged at the way Simon Hume Kendall has stolen cash from the victims of the LCF ponzi, mostly pensioners like Brian, and has donated £65,000 to Amber Rudd’s local party and to Tory central office. Basham has written to Ms Rudd and his letter follows:

You may remember that my coach for my Woodlarks walk was 75 year old Fleet Street legend Brian Basham who himself completed the London marathon last year. My coach was in town yesterday and we met up for lunch. Uh Oh!

I am conscious that I have put on a few pounds during the summer, that my blood sugar is too high – though not off the scale as it once was – and that action is needed to lose weight and to get/keep my type 2 diabetes in check. Thus it is time to visit Perry, the stalwart of the local Tory party, who runs a gym half way between Joshua’s nursery, aka the borstal, and our house here in Bristol.

It is now less than four weeks until myself and Brokerman Dan try to walk from Horse Hill to Woodlarks to raise money for this charity which I have backed for 16 years and which does amazing work as you can see HERE. Dan is far fitter than I am and sent late night texts on Friday saying that he had managed a 21 mile walk but was a wreck and needed a lighter rucksack. I know it is hot up in Manchester what with all those fires on the Moors but I think he is kidding me. It is all psychology. My plan was to do 26 miles on Sunday.

It is a day off from training, after yesterday's ten mile walk. My 75 year old coach, Brian Basham, says I must rest my muscles. I restart again tomorrow but how about you donate a tenner to a great cause and sponsor me HERE? Meanwhile i discuss Cynical Bear's latest piece written in ignorance on Big Sofa (BST). He might be right and I may be wrong. So far he has called it right. But what we do know is that he is guessing and writing in ignorance, I'd rather not do that. Then I look at fund managers making pathetic excuses for their own failure over Persimmon (PSN). Finally after today's shocking Lombard (LRM) expose HERE I ask will the authorities finally hold individuals to account to show they really want to stamp out fraud.

In just under two months I shall be doing a 30 mile walk for the excellent Woodlarks Charity with my friend the blogger and former bank robber Brokerman Dan. Dan is rather fitter than I am and keeps tweeting messages about how he is just popping out for a quick 10 mile training yomp. I do not know if he is just trying to spook me or if he is serious but I have a horrible feeling that it is the latter.

Well done to my friend the legendary hack, evil PR spinner and raconteur Brian Basham who managed to finish the London Marathon in 7 hours, 59 minutes and 33 seconds - I doubt I could do that today, let alone at 75.

Prostate cancer lies twentieth in the ‘league table’ of annual cancer research spend. It kills slightly more men than breast cancer kills women but it gets half the funding. That’s why treatment lags ten years behind breast cancer and many years behind some other forms of cancer. Brian Basham is a legend among journalists

Following the mammoth success of UK Investor Show 2014 we are moving into overdrive for the 2015 show on April 18 and one new feature will be a series of 14 one hour masterclasses with an audience limited to 80 – we are taking on an additional floor in Westminster.
In these rooms Amanda Van Dyke will be doing a session on how to value mining stocks. Brian Basham will be doing a session on making money from Crowd Funding. And new for this year, Adam Reynolds, the Company Rescuer, will be doing a masterclass on how to make money from shell companies.
Adam is the brains behind two companies currently suspended pending RTOs. Real Man is invested in both Ducat Ventures (DUC) and Vialogy (VIY) and I am an insider on both so all I can say is that I am incredibly excited and they will pay for Christmas - see HERE
We profiled Adam here.
