I am the first to say how dreadful Liz Truss is at almost every level, not least the way she portrays herself as the new Thatcher when she so obviously is not in every way. But some attacks on her are just hugely unfair and plain bonkers. Yes I refer to the dreadful, offshore owned, tax avoiding, Guardian, the paper that supported the slavers in the South in the US Civil War and which spouts a non stop diet of left wing bilge. Is this peak Guardian madness?

It was back in July 2018 that I first started to expose the murky and, at times fraudulent, world of First Derivatives (FDP) and its scandal plagued auditors at KPMG Belfast, with the shares at £46. A lot has happened since then. Fascist PR pigs FTI tried to bully me to take down my articles but I told the mothers where to stick it. I reported First to the FRC and it was forced to restate its crooked accounts signed off by KPMG. And Brian Conlon, the CEO and architect of this enterprise sadly passed away leaving his grieving widow as the largest shareholder. Today the name is now FD Technologies (FDP).And it is still a cracking short ahead of numbers next week.Let me explain.

In the bad old days, only alt-right freaks or members of the Democrat party in Dixie believed in segregation but as the poster below shows, the progressive forces of the left seem to have embraced the idea. We evil folks on the right who reckon everyone on this earth should be treated in the same way and allowed to mix with whom they want must, by definition, be fascists for opposing segregation.

Melania Trump is a woman who, fluently, speaks five languages more than most of the liberals from the English-speaking world who abuse her. Because of who she is married to, it is, apparently, acceptable to racially abuse her. Take actor Tim Matheson. Now that I have googled him, I do know who he is but all that you need to know is that he is just your normal common or garden Hollywood liberal millionaire celeb.

One of the great themes of 2020 has been the visceral intolerance of the left. To many of them, anyone marginally to the right of Kier Starmer is an alt-right, fascist, racist, homophobic, transphobic Little Englander freak who must be ostracised and no platformed. Those who tweet with the hashtag #FBPE who will tonight be frothing and seething in a particularly hateful manner, as some of us celebrate quietly on our own, are the most intolerant of the lot. I wish ill on no-one but I wonder what would happen if Mary, below, got really sick and had to call an ambulance only to find it was staffed by Tory voting Brexiteers.

And so a fascist email from a lawyer arrives addressed to ShareProphets requesting that we remove content from our website. The email comes from a Spanish firm called Eliminalia which boasts that it is “dedicated to erasing the past. Our team deletes all the links that exist about your person or business one-by-one, if necessary, initiating legal action to achieve your desired results, thanks to our team of in-house attorneys.”. George Orwell would love these bastards. The person paying Eliminalia to bully companies such as ShareProphets is former fund manager Mark Denning. Well Mark we will publish this correspondence in full so that more folks know about you. And to Eliminalia we will “see you in court bitchez!” So who is Denning?

The data below record the number of deaths of folks under 60 since the start of the year who did not have any underlying health issues. As you can see, Covid claimed 377 such lives. But 655 people died from falling down stairs. This is simple: we must protect the NHS even if it causes the economy to crater. When will Matt Hancock ban stairs across this land, or make it a criminal offence to use stairs? Will the Old Bill have license to enter folks’ homes to impose fines of £10,000 if they suspect that people might be using stairs? And if not, why the hell not?

I stand by my view that most journalists in the MSM are rightly despised as expense fiddling, PR-cock-sucking worms. However, I take my hat off to Tristan Kirk of the London Evening Standard, a paper that has in the past employed some amazing journalists though modesty prevents me from naming them. His expose on the crazy lockdown laws and penalties for breaking them is stunning. The only question is why is he running it on Twitter rather than in the paper? But as it is on Twitter, I bring it to you in full: Kirk writes:

I used to host events for, I think, the Kings College Libertarian Society when I owned a restaurant nearby. I am a libertarian and I also believe in free speech which means that all sides need to be allowed a platform, even those with whom you disagree. But as I have found to my own cost in recent months, on campuses across the UK free speech is under real threat from the extreme left. And truth is the first casualty. Anyone with whom the left disagrees is "Alt Right" even though we libertarians clearly are not. But who cares? For some of those on the left it is now acceptable to tell lies to shut down those with whom you disagree. You would have thought that academic staff would fight such bullying to protect the integrity of academia. Sadly that is not always the case..

Hang on: gender was an issue in the US but in the French contest it is politics so the wimmin want Le Pen to lose.(As it happens so do I)
Her present is a revelation that Francois Fillon (the only person who can beat Le Pen) appears to have paid his British Mrs Penny, more than a few pennies do be his assistant. In fact she earned around $538,000 according to newspaper Canard Enchaine which says that it can find no-one at all who saw her doing any work at all for her husband in his capacity as MP for the Sarthe region.

Naturally I am shocked over the massacre of journalists at Charlie Hebdo in Paris by Islamofascist gunmen. It is an assault on free speech, it is sickening and it must be deplored but watching C4 coverage of the event last night the cowardice and duplicity of the Western Media was there for all to see.
First up were the range of voices singing the praises of the publication for daring to challenge cultural norms, standing up to religious intolerance and to racism for fighting for free speech and calling for the Front Nationale to be banned. Er…hang on a sec…
Personally I do not find some of the crude jibes made at all religions by this publication very clever, funny or brave. Let’s face it Jews and Christians are not going to react by hacking heads off in protest, that sort of behaviour is the preserve of the Islamofascists. However, amongst the trendy liberal elite it is deemed clever and almost the norm to mock those of any faith (but especially the Christian faith) as if they were some relic of a former age, like those who support fox hunting, hanging or who believe in a flat earth. I admire those with faith. I cannot believe but almost wish I did. I find the principles of Christianity as far more appealing than those of the chattering classes.
As such while I regard much of what Charlie Hebdo lampooned about the faith I’d like to have offensive, crude and not very clever. Sure, attack the Church where it fails (like in child abuse) but to attack folks just for having faith or the faith itself in a sneering manner – how very Islington.
But I defend its right to publish this bollocks because I believe in free speech. And that is why I am perplexed by how the liberal elite think that Charlie Hebdo trying to get the Front Nationale banned is worthy of praise. Okay it fits in with the modern liberal agenda but it is hardly in the Mill or Gladstone tradition of supporting free speech is it?
That I loathe and despise everything that the party of Le Pen stands for is a given. But
