Podcast: Tom Winnifrith reads The Gruffalo in Shetlandese for Woodlarks

Anyone with kids will know the classic tale The Gruffalo. One godfather of my baby son Joshua recently worked in the Shetland Islands so gave him a copy of the book in Shetlandese. I was reading that to Joshua, the other day, when a mining fellow called Paul Johnson rang and Paul said that if I recorded a podcast of the Gruffalo in Shetlandese then he would donate £100 to my favourite charity Woodlarks, which I have been supporting for more than a decade and a half. I know that I will sound like a total prat and my apologies go out to Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson and to the entire population of the Shetland Isles but it is for a good cause. If you appreciate this exercise in self-humiliation and wish to make a small donation to a good cause go to the Woodlarks website HERE

EXCLUSIVE: papers lodged to oust The Professor & Maureen Jones from Conroy at new GM: The Sheriff will be there!

I can reveal that papers have this afternoon been lodged in Dublin with Conroy Gold & Natural Resources (CGNR) calling for a second GM to install three new directors: Paul Johnson, Patrick O'Sullivan and Gervaise Heddle. But after the sodomising of democracy that was the last GM, this time the rebels are also calling for the sacking of Professor Richard Conroy and his sidekick Maureen Jones. I will be going to this GM to back the rebels. The Sheriff of AIM will get his man, Prof Con you are on notice!

Metal Tiger the debate - CEOs should not talk share prices on twitter

I stand accused by Was Shakoor, Doc Holiday and others of being a tad charitable towards Metal Tiger (MTR) in today's BearCast HERE. Folks if you listen carefully you will note that I said the shares were clearly overvalued in relation to NAV. I do however make one observation about a tweet below from Paul Johnson the CEO.
