Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The Rogue Bloggers are now 8 (+2 fantasy women) & the wooden floor that protects female failures like Sharon White & La Willingham

I start on journalist ethics, that is to say not selling shares before advising readers to and a chap called Magna Carta who reminds me of the weeds in my strawberry patch. Then onto Rogue Bloggers where Andrew Bell says he is joining us and bringing a fantasy woman. I shall bring Cheryl. Please donate HERE. Finally, referring to Sarah Willingham and Dame Sharon White of John Lewis infamy (see the Daily Mail article I refer to HERE) I suggest that a glass ceiling for women in business has been replaced by a wooden floor.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - the problem with sacking people, the 3 xs

No this is not a reference to Darren after the glitch on the earlier bullcast. It is a reference to Versarien (VRS). I explain why today’s Umbro based ramping video is just so much hooey and a sell signal not a buy one. Then it is onto young journalists and the problems they face, Jamie Nimmo eulogising Dan Wagner with some PR puffery in the Sunday Times. Finally why Avacta (AVCT) is such a compelling short.

Twitter troll glorifies violence against Tom Winnifrith

Will the online harm bill do anything to protect journalists facing constant online harassment including a celebration of violence against them? I doubt it. I bring you Tuesday’s TW troller of the day.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Zak Mir, Powerhouse and DOM Howard White - you could not make this stuff up

I start with the latest  “let’s get TW hate campaign” with, this time, Avacta (AVCT) owning morons leading the charge. Suffice to say if folks this dumb are long you know to be short. Then onto ADM Energy (ADME), Deepverge (DVRG), ASOS (ASC), Sosandar (SOS), Boohoo (BOO), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and then the laugh a minute show at Powerhouse (PHE), now at 1.65p a compelling short thanks to the antics of PR man posing as a journalist Zak Mir.

Boom, boom: Why are Audioboom shares collapsing?

The shares are off another 15% today at 498p. That is less than a quarter of what they were, earlier this year when the fraudsters favourite journalist Ben Harrington was telling readers of the loathsome fake financial newspaper the Mail on Sunday that bidders were circling. So why are the shares trading lower. There are three reasons:

Tom Winnifrith bearcast: is journalist Bethany Garner of Forbes bent or just incredibly stupid?

I start with Kanabo (KNB), Oxford Cannibanoid (OTCP) and Cellular Goods (CBX). Who on earth would write them up as the three pot stocks to buy. They are all utter dogs facing looming cash crises. Meet Bethany Garner. I then discuss Victoria (VCP) after this bombshell. Then  Gary’s death wish, not as a Euroloon, but in considering buying Revolution Beauty (REVB). Then Ariana (AAU) and why its shares continue to drift.  I start with news of a last minute cancellation here in Greece. If you fancy a last minute luxury break drop me an email. Anyhow it means a more leisurely drive back for me starting, I think, on Monday.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - in defence of Neil Woodford

I start with the garden, before explaining why I am driving all the way to Greece – my rational decision is a canary in the coal mine of global inflation. I defend Neil Woodford against a low-grade Sunday Times journalist, with reference to 4D Pharma (DDDD). Then, I look at bonkers house prices and when the tears will start.

Julie Meyer MBE plumbs new depths - tweeting about the suicide of the mother of the journalist who has exposed her crimes

46 years ago my mother killed herself. I do not hide the fact and yes it is an event that saddens me. But I do not expose folks like Julie Meyer, who has fled Britain to avoid a six month jail term, owes taxes all over the world and is the subject of an FCA Criminal investigation because of what happened in on Oxford hospital in 1976 but because folks like Julie Meyer should be exposed. The tweet below ike others were Meyer incites the mob with talk of terrorism has been reported to twitter but nothing will be done.

Journalist trolling arse Gerry Brandon fools the morons (again) – production orders are not revenues &certainly not cash!

As Deepverge (DVRG) burns cash and prepares for this year’s bailout placing, the journalist trolling arse of a CEO Gerry Brandon is playing his usual game of spoofing the morons who comprise his shareholder list and ramping the shares with announcements that are designed to mislead a group of investors with a collective IQ of less than that of a cheese sandwich. Last year Gerry the arse broke AIM Rule 11 with the pre-placing ramp, this year it is more nuanced spoof.

Gary Newman in Uganda prize caption contest - is that David Lenigas wallowing in the AIM sewer

Anyhow, he has posted this photo he took of David Lenigas wallowing in the AIM sewer, I mean, of the wildlife diversity spotted as Gary tries to catch a fish. I invite you to supply a suitable caption in the comments section before midnight tonight. Do not hold back.

Tom Winnifrith Twitter account blocked for being nasty to journalist smearing PR man Paul “Queenie” Mcmanus

I have had to agree to remove two tweets directed at Walbrook PR man Paul “Queenie McManus” as Twitter says that I am harassing the poor little bunny. I have had, in an Orwellian way, to admit to Big Brother that I did indeed harass Queenie and must now suffer 12 hours of twitter silence on the naughty step. So here is what I said and why it was utterly fair and did not, in fact,break twitter rules.

Who are more depressing: the covid scientists or the journalists?

Tom Winnifrith bearcast - the dossier that made my skin crawl

I do not name the company but the dossier is one one of the journalists here. It concludes that he has done nothing wrong but it goes through utterly uncalled for very personal details about him, his world view, his girl friend, his work and more. It made my skin crawl and the company that spunked £40,000 on this document should be utterly ashamedof itself. I have put in a call and let it know that behaving like this towards one of our journalists is asking for a lot of trouble. It is repellant and I am on the warpath.  I then look at the SP Angel/Union Jack Oil (UJO) scandal, at Nanosynth (NNN), Powerhouse (PHE) explaining the RNS/RNS Reach issue in full. Finally, I discuss Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - a helpful graphic explaining the Cineworld smoke and mirrors today

I record from the Welsh Hovel which is once again a building site. Excuse any background noise. I look at Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and its uncorrected and untrue 4 October RNSThen at the fraud Chill Brands (CHLL). In both cases the regulator, the hapless FCA, should be acting right now. Then it is onto Cineworld (CINE) and, with the graphic below – hat tip EB. I explain why its trading statement is so deceptive and why the shares are still a sell. Finally a few words on Optibiotix (OPTI) & Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and today’s confirmation of what a good journalist I am. What does it mean for both stocks?

What is a radicalised driver and why should we demonise them - commie journalist Ash Sarkar explains

Nope it is not a suicide bomber in a car packed with explosives. Ash would view them as being a lone wolf, mentally ill or part of a Neo Nazi conspiracy. When Ash Sarkar refers to a “radicalised driver” she means someone trying to get to work to earn their daily bread, trying to get their kids to school or their cancer ridden mum to hospital who finds their road blocked by a group of middle class, invariably white, protestors and tries to haul them off the road as the Police refuse to act. As ever Ash can say what she likes on the selfish nutters in Insulate Britain or any other matter but every time she does she exposes how folks like her, rarely not appearing as an “expert” pundit on the BBC, are just so woefully out of touch with how the rest of us think.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Which high profile journalist said last night "TW was brave and TW was right!"

Jeepers, the answer will shock you but is a reminder that Fleet Street does read this website avidly.  In the rest of the podcast, as my son spends the day vomiting I discuss a work life balance that is becoming increasingly daft. Then I head back to work looking at Ariana Resources (AAU) where I disagree with Nigel and probably lose another friend (Kerim Sener),  Chesterfield Resources (CHF), (BOO), AO World (AO.), Parsley Box (PUKE), Mercantile Ports (MPL) and Primary Bid and what it needs to change.

So I asked ADVFN's boss if his company enjoyed giving a platform discussing the death of a journalist, that is to say me: Tom Winnifrith

It has just been brought to my attention that ADVFN has been hosting a (brief) thread dedicated to discussing my demise. It has been live since February 17 as you can see below. It’s only point is discussing my demise something spurred on by my exposes of and obtaining the suspension of, the fraud that is [email protected] Capital (SYME). Does ADVFN really think that offering a platform to discuss such a matter is appropriate. Will it take firm action and not only can the thread but ban the sick mind who created it? I have asked the question of ADVFN Boss Mike Hodges this morning?

Problem listening to bearcast or the hang up phone calls at 6.43 AM or 1.02 AM – it is the same issue: industrial scale harassment

If you are have had an issue listening to bearcast via your Apple feed let me explain why. It is the same reason I got phone calls at 6.43 AM on Saturday and 0.01 AM today. And before any folks suggest that in some way I deserve it, no journalist deserves this harassment and the wife and 5 month baby of a journalist never deserve harassment. Surely even the biggest chatroom moron can see that.

If I am pushed under a bus any time soon, I do hope London South East keeps records of those posting there like this moron below.

Considering grief and mourning: is Yasmin Alibhai-Brown the most poisonous woman in Britain?

Nobody knows how they will react to death or to the possibility that a loved one is slipping away – I did not cry at the funeral of my father or as I sat by his bed as he died. I had shed a few tears a few days earlier as I sat in his room with him, lying there in a sleep which could only end one way. I cried buckets at the funeral of my grandmother and also when my cat Kitosh died suddenly. At the funeral of Uncle Chris Booker I think I had a moist eye, nothing more. Does that mean I loved my cat more than my father? Of course not. Grief and knowing you may be close to losing someone hits us in different ways and it is, or should be, a private matter. That brings us to, arguably, the most poisonous woman in Britain today.

Paul Kendall of the Telegraph defends corrupt journalism with a twitter "hit" on me

The BBC’s Panorama recognised which journalist exposed the disgraced fund manager Neil Woodford from 2015 onwards with more than 1000 articles, podcasts and videos. When I confronted Woodford at his AGM in May 2019, he signalled me out as the journalist who had been most “wrong” about him. Within 3 weeks his funds had been gated – as I predicted. Woodford made £40 million from the venture, tens of thousands of ordinary savers lost billions. I had been right while  Fleet Street blew Woodford off almost to the end. The FCA is now looking into Woodford but 20 months later the disgraced fund manager is plotting a comeback. How do we know? The Sunday Telegraph had the scoop. This is corrupt journalism that shames our profession.

Commie journalist Ash Sarkar, the darling of the BBC - a fail for logic on Tom Moore

Of course she can say what she likes. But equally I hope that I am still allowed to point out that she gets a logic fail with her Tom Moore tweet. To give Ms Sarkar enormous credit, she did not start off with the sort of cliched 140 character eulogies which almost every other celeb, journalist and politician sent out, meaningless piffle designed to make them look good rather than to provide actual comfort to the late Captain Moore’s family.

Ash Sarkar, did you really go into journalism to do this?

I do not agree with the politics of communist journalist Ash Sarkar and she says some remarkably silly and insensitive things. But, as a believer in freedom, I defend to the utmost her right to say and write as she pleases, just as I defend other figures such as Sasha Johnson of BLM. Her right is to offend me with her ludicrous views. I also have a lot of sympathy for Ash for the way that she is attacked.

A real journalist, Tristan Kirk, exposes the fascist and arbitrary penalties brought in for breaking lockdown

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:

Photo Article: Gary Newman lands a monster, no fisherman's tale

You may have noticed that Gary Newman is not filing a lot of copy. His wretched and pathetic excuse is that he is on his day job as a fishing journalist and is out in the field, or, to be precise, the seas offshore Kenya. And in case you think anglers always exaggerate when it comes to size here is our man with a sailfish he caught earlier…

First they came for the Brexiteers, then they came for the conservatives and when they came for Suzanne Moore there was no-one to save her

This week, the journalist Suzanne Moore was forced out of her highly paid job at the Guardian. Her crime was to question certain of the more radical demands of the trans agenda in relation to women‘s rights. Moore was not fired. No, this is 1984 so instead vast numbers of her colleagues wrote to management saying her views upset them. Knowing she was in peril of being written out of the script, Moore walked.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Journalist-smearing motherfuckers Citigate Dewe Rogerson & FastJet Edition

I have been waiting for this day for a long while. I hope that comrade Graham Neary has a glass (or seven) of Black Velvet over in Ireland tonight. I shall have an ouzo as I enjoy some karma heading to the - journalist-smearing – fascist PR bastards at Citigate. I should warn you that this podcast contains some bad language as I consider the AIM demise of Fastjet (FJET). I laugh at a rumour about Ascent Resources (AST) and the whore blogger Malcolm Graham Wood and I consider the laughable plans of the pathetic nanny state regime of Bojo to tackle obesity.  I also look at Cineworld (CINE), R4E (R4E) and [email protected] Capital (SYME), three firms I fear are in the merde. And did I mention that Citigate Dewe Rogerson are a bunch of journalist-smearing motherfuckers whose comprehensive lack of ethics I shall toast with ouzo tonight?

No doubt the BBC will lap thus up but the only problem is that it is completely untrue. It is fake news. I discuss this plus a cunning escape plan put forward for Neil Woodford’s Equity Income Fund.

The Corruption of the Deadwood Press: The Mail on Sunday, Jim Mellon and Agronomics

Agronomics (ANIC) is an AIM listed firm which knew full well on Friday that it was set to raise £4.5 million at 5p – as against a 5.5p mid. So here is what to do. Leak the story to the fraudsters fave journalist, Ben Harrington, who will give it an utterly misleading write-up in the Mail on Sunday in return for the “scoop.” MoS readers fill their boots on Monday and the shares move higher – they are now 6.5p. So Harrington and the Fail on Sunday get another “scoop”, the Spiv clients of broker Peterhouse get to flip the stock and thank Peterhouse which earns 5% to pay for the coke and hookers and the company is cashed up.  The only folk who get screwed are readers of the Fail on Sunday who are buying shares on the basis of completely fake news.

Weaponising suicide - the sheer nastiness of the left repels me & yes this is personal

As you might have guessed I regard Theresa May as a treacherous liar and the worst Prime Minister in history. She once called the Tory Party the nasty party but today it is the left in Britain which is truly nasty. The weaponisation of actual suicides as a stick to beat the wretched May is just a new low. Yes, for me, this is personal. My mother killed herself. I have struggled with depression and mental breakdown and have discussed both matters openly. In my wider family there have been three more suicides since 1933. Suicide is a very serious issue which we should be able to talk about openly and honestly. Yet..

Monday Night car crash video shocker - Diane Abbott interview on Sky

This is not pretty. Commie journalist Paul Mason says that Diane Abbott is only criticised by nasty racists. Au contraire. She is criticised by all and sundry because she is too lazy to do her homework and too stupid to understand her brief. This interview with Sky is a total car crash. Does anyone seriously think that this woman is fit to be Home Secretary by Friday. I know she shagged the boss but is there any other reason why Jeremy Corbyn has not fired this useless old bag? If Labour thinks she is fit for a high office, or indeed any office, it is 'avin' a giraffe. Watch this and you just have to vote Tory.

It can be changed if doctors and lawyers are made to face the same market forces we poor journalists have had to face.

President Erdogan of Turkey thinks journalists are terrorists: why are we giving 6 billion to this fascist?

By we, I mean the EU which is giving Turkey 6 billion Euro as a bribe to only export the right sort of immigrants (ie Syrians whether they be peace lovers or jihadis) to Europe. As part of the EU's Turk-geld policy we are also planning to allow 75 million Turkish citizens to roam freely around the EU from June and to accelerate Turkey's membership appliocation to join the Evil Empire. What could possibly go wrong? What's not to like. Answers on a postcard to David Cameron in Downing Street because Call Me Dave reckons this is money well spent and wants to be part of this barking mad set-up. I don't which is aother reason I am voting for Brexut.

As a reminder, Turkey bombs our friends the Kurds. It buys oil from ISIS and is the chief supply route of men and arms to ISIS. It closes down newspapers and TV stations that are hostile to the Government. And more than 2000 folk have been arrested for the offence of insulting the Government, that is to say disagreeing with it.

Terrorists are dealt with very harshly but who is a terrorist? Helpfully, President Erdogan has cleared that one up for us all.

I am sorry for the delayed podcast but I am only just back from time in the Grim Northern welfare safari with the mother in law and thus can now let myself go with a volley of bad language.  I end with an explanation of who benefitted from the £150 million + Himex fraud at Quindell (QPP) laid bare earlier HERE and how it also affects Watchstone (WTG). Before that I talk of my annoyance on the silly blogger spats and the explain the difference between a cash shell and an investment company and why I regard our work on exposing the latter as invaluable. In the middle segment I have more bad news for oil companies such as XCite (XEL), IGAS (IGAS), Petroceltic (PCI) & Gulf Keystone (GKP) and for the sector as a whole but also for the markets.

Helena Delopolous – Get a dictionary you moronic bitch

It seems that not everyone agrees with me pointing out that Daily Mail journalist Liz Jones produced a shoddy and misleading article on Greece. That sort of scaremongering that Ms Jones served up had damaged the tourist trade in Greece so hurting poor folks even more. Several English folks in that trade in Greece cited the Daly Mail as the worst offender. I urge you to ignore the witch Jones and the Daily Mail and go to Greece (see HERE). But now back to the moron Helena who posts on ShareProphets: “Disgraceful blogging. You’re not a journalist. You’re a foul mouthed troll. Guttersnipe”

Sometimes I love running a restaurant, sometimes I hate it…

At 10 AM today I let a debating group into Free Speech & Liberty to start our trading day two hours earlier than normal. At 12.15 I realised our cook (due to start at 11.45) was not here. By 12.20 I’d established he’d crashed his motorbike but I pushed him and he promised me that he’d be with me in half an hour. I switched on his oven and prayed he’d turn up by 12.45 as the debaters wanted food at 1. 

He did not, but I played for time and at 1.15 he arrived, we served, they loved the food and had a great day. I took on a pretty young lefty on the subject of aid for the kleptocrats of Africa (she supported it, I said African need capitalism not handouts) but it killed the time while we waited for the cook. 

But that period 12.45-1.15 was stressful. It is times like that that I loathe.

It is now 6.30 and we have had folks in all day. We have a big table

Just why did Minesite airbrush legendary Journalist John Helmer from history

John Helmer is a legend among journalists. Resident in Moscow since 1989 he has been threatened numerous times for breaking stories of corruption in the financial markets and elsewhere in Russia and also in China and Asia. He is a brave man and a hero in our profession and he used to contribute to Minesite filing some stunning articles on the mining world. That was until February 2011.

Then he tried to file this article. It did not appear. And so Helmer put it up on his own website. As you can see it is rather critical of Jim Mellon and his long-time business partner Steve Dattels. And

Real Man Pizza becomes The Free Speech & Liberty Pizza House today

The jihadists of the QPPSAG and other frauds and morons have waged war against me, this website and especially our cracking Clerkenwell restaurant for 2 years as we expose crime and dishonesty in the City. Today we accelerate the fight back against the free speech deniers as the restaurant gets a makeover.

We all support free speech don’t we? But how far will you go in its defence? The staff at this restaurant know that defending free speech with words is easy but when you are in the firing line it can be rather harder.

During the past three years I have received more than 75 lawyers letters from a range of listed companies threatening me for what I have written on this website which I run with veteran Canadian journalist Darren Atwater demanding that I desist.  I have not withdrawn one allegation or article.

In the first month of 2015, three companies that I have attacked have gone bust or seen trading in their shares suspended. Over the past year I have ended the PLC careers of more than half a dozen individuals and there are more to come. Good riddance to the crony capitalists!

Only one company (Sefton, run by JimmyLiar Ellerton) has upped the ante from bullying to taking full legal action. Its chairman was fired in disgrace and it ended up paying us costs.

I have also received three death threats in the past year which you can see on the walls at the Free Speech & Liberty Pizza House ( as well as a selection of letters from bully boy lawyers including Schillings, Pinsent Masons and Memery Crystal) , we have received dog shit in the post and the staff at one City investment bank have publicly threatened to beat me up for what I wrote about the way they ripped off investors by floating fraudulent companies. I responded by going to film a video outside the bank’s Christmas party which you can see here.

The most venomous reaction
