The map below is fascinating. It shows the first year when each country in Europe reached its population in 2021. In the case of Ireland it was 1825. Then came the famine and mass migration took place. For Northern and Western Europe, with the assistance of mass immigration, the answer is 2021. But look further East and what you see is explosive and might be one explanation of events in Ukraine and Russia.

I start with the manic activity round at the Welsh Hovel, photos HERE. Then I look at Iconic (ICON), Toople (TOOP), Xaar (XAR) and at Powerhouse Energy (PHE). So much coke and hookers money for all the City boys, but it will end in tears and a diet of cabbage soup for the mug punters.

The Annual AIM awards were a virtual event this year. So there was no need for 1200 crony capitalists from the City to fork out £150 for a ticket, pour themselves into DJs and party frocks and head off to tell each other how wonderful they all were. The crony capitalists will have to spend cash ultimately leached from mug punter investors elsewhere. What good news for coke suppliers and hookers.

I know. I know. The price of coke and also of hookers is going up. I blame Brexit. What we need are frictionless borders so we can import more of both from Albania to keep the City boys happy. Pro tem that means brokers need to hold their noses (so to speak) and act for anyone. Even proven shysters like Tomco (TOM).

There were many varied answers to the Sunday Odd One Out contest HERE. I am not sure that there is any evidence that Hugh Grant uses sex toys, unless of course you count hookers in LA as sex toys. I am sure some answers are correct. However what I was looking for is that the odd one out is....

A three part bearcast. In part one I look at Stratex (STI) where old managers are trying to oust new. l explain why the old boys are dreamers and should be told to foxtrot oscar. Then it is onto 1Spatial (SPA) which is behaving as if it is placing ahoy and I am almost certain that it is placing ahoy. Either way - avoid. Finally I waste time debating with a total fucktard on twitter. Folks like @Aimfatcat deserve poverty.

Cloudtag (CTAG) morons are getting terribly excited about the CES show in las Vegas which their boys are paying to attend next month. Now let's rewind a year to January 8 2016, 21 days before the company launched a blizzard of placings. Here is a ramp video Cloudtag paid IR hookers Proactive Investors to record. The really very foxy Charlotte Kan of Proactive quizzes lying Amit Ben Haim about CES 2016 where he launched Cloudtag's products. Ms Kan maybe uber foxy but she is not exactly Paxman.

In yesterday's bearcast I commented on the latest pump and dump by Bushveld Minerals (BMN). My attention is now drawn to a promotional video recorded by CEO Fortune Mojapelo on 17 October. This is just so sordid.

I used to have a girlfriend from India who arrived in this country convinced that the entire British establishment and anyone who went to a public school (with the exception of myself, naturally) were closet homoseexuals. If she is reading the tabloid press today she will no doubt be concluding that she was right all along.
First there is the Bishop of Grantham

The following explains itself. Dear Dorothy,
My husband is a liar and a cheat. He has cheated on me from the beginning and when I confront him, he denies everything. What's worse, everyone knows he cheats on me. It's so humiliating.

Recently listed Papillon Holdings (PPHP) is - as Cynical Bear pointed out here - clearly an overvalued rum and coke. But in its brief existence it has at least achieved something: helping the FD slash his tax bill. Oh what jolly good news for the crony capitalists, coke and hookers all round.

Another week goes by and it is another week of ludicrious divorce settlements. Greedy women taking their poor lunch-tickets, oops I meant ex husbands, to the cleaners. Anyone with wealth or ambition marrying in Britain today needs their head examined.
Nick Robertson the, rather pompous, boss of online retailer ASOS got taken for £70 million - half his fortune - by his ex Mrs. The argument is that without her there to support his career by looking after their brats he would not have the fortune. That is patently untrue. I have met Robertson, who strikes me as smug and conceited, but there is no doubt that he - not his money grabbing ex Mrs - had the idea, drive and talent to create and build ASOS. Yes the Mrs looked after the brats, but she was doing a job which could equally have been done by an uber-posh blonde Swedish nanny with great legs on £40,000 a year.
I am sure Mr Robertson could have been persuaded

It seems that amongst the crony capitalists coining it in from the coke & hookers subsidy machine that is the AIM Casino this website is not terribly popular.

The big news for libertarians, like me, last week was that vice (drugs and prostitution) look set to be included in how we calculate GDP in the UK. Apparently they are worth a combined £10 billion to the UK each year. You can from that number make a number of assumptions.
1. The vast amounts the State spends trying to tackle these crimes is not working and is money wasted.
2. There are very few rich hookers or drug pushers (the actual distributors) and since the non-labour cost of sales is very low (drugs are cheap as a raw commodity and condoms and a bit of advertising cost sod all) you can assume that organised crime is raking in billions a year.
So please can anyone explain why the current system ( which brings endemic health risks for many, a tab the State then picks up) can be said to work?

Actor Hugh Grant is, as you may remember, keen to gag the press so that it cannot run stories about how he used to get blow jobs from hookers in Los Angeles. But in the UK it appears that we are now going to include prostitution in how we calculate our Gross Domestic Product. As such it is surely a valid question to ask how much Mr Grant has contributed to US economic growth over the years?
As such the “Divine” picture below is totally relevant and I invite you to suggest a suitable caption for it. Please post your captions in the comments section below.

I have used Minoan (MIN) before as an example of how market makers operate. When I pointed this out before (HERE) I was told that they provide liquidity. No, they just manipulate share prices to ensure that they make enough money to pay for the cocaine and hookers this weekend. The transparency is obvious.
Shares in Minoan moved ahead sharply this morning on the back of reports

Global Warming is a feminist issue driving women to prostitution – moron liberal of the month Barbara Lee
It is good to see that moron liberals reside on both sides of the Atlantic and January’s moron liberal of the month is California Congresswoman Barbara Lee with a claim so ludicrous it is hard to know where to start.
This imbecile has just authored a new resolution put to Congress which seeks to demonstrate that climate change (or global warming as nutters like Lee used to call it before the Planet started getting a lot colder), is an issue that effects women more than men and so forces them to become prostitutes so they get Aids and die and thus the US Government (heading for bankruptcy, last seen) needs to do something.
To quote this total nutter, as a result of global warming, oops I meant climate change:
“Food insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health.”
It gets worse.
