Most journalists worry that Artificial Intelligence, AI, will in due course threaten their jobs. Zak Mir claims to be a member of the National Union of Journalists but, judging by an update from his Aquis listed Lift Global Ventures (LFT) yesterday, his work will only be threatened by advances in the development of Artificial Stupidity.

An insider dealing director, directors who troll journalists on twitter or who threaten critics, these are never good signs. But worse is the determination of Predator Oil & Gas (PRD) to avoid issuing a prospectus when issuing shares. For the second time it has found a loophole to dodge making disclosures. Just what is the company hiding?

I start with Boris and the blonde and what it says about double standards for the public sector ( our servants) and the private sector. My big political scoop of the day, BTW, is HERE. Then I discuss procrastinating ahead of a Woodlarks training walk. The weather is foul here in Wales but off I go, so as you listen so think of my suffering and donate HERE. Then it is onto Hargreaves Lansdowne (HL), poodle journalists, Link and Neil Woodford.

Daily, on our TV screens we are assured by “public health experts” whose jobs at the Ministry of Truth are safe, whatever happens to the economy, that tier 3 measures are more effective than tier two measures in controlling covid. That is to say numbers often rise enough to push a tier 2 district into tier 3 and then as controls tighten that district can return to tier 2 and eventually to tier 1. But there is a massive logical flaw in this claim which the media, collectively, fails to spot.

To put this in context, even morally bankrupt Nomad SP Angel, the Nomad of choice for fraudsters, does not think this news is financially significant and so has forced ramping Neill Ricketts to alert his moronic investors via an RNS reach not an RNS. Natch, folks who think it’s okay to murder journalists don’t care about facts so Versarien (VRS) shares are up 12% at 46p – an £8 million increase in market cap on news that even the Nomad thinks is financially irrelevant!

Thde good news is that Buzzfeed UK has been shut down for good. The bad news is that pampered journalists are increasingly demanding that we plebs pay more in tax to subsidise them. I discuss that then the increasingly murky goings on at All Active Asset Capital (AAA), death spiral nonsense at Tertiary Minerals (TYM) and then buyers remorse at Restaurant Group (RTN). Finally I have bad news about Woodlarks & need your help, please respond.

I am contacted on twitter, as you can see below, by a man claiming to live in Spain who opposes Berkeley Energia (BKY) and its plans to create thousands of jobs at Salamanca. I do not wish to deny the poor the dignity of work this chap does. Follow the thread for it ends with a clear threat - I should stay away from the project...

In today's bearcast I look at the writings of Ian Cowie in the Sunday papers and his cunning scheme to avoid IHT by losing all your money and his patronising view that journalists know better and can be trusted. A bit like Estate Agents and MPs then? I then discuss Luke Johnson's view that we are celebrating the business woes of Jamie Oliver because we envy him. Luke is not all wrong but overlooks the fact that Oliver is a patronising A grade A'hole.

I see that Guardian journalist Carole Cadwalladr is complaining that she has received death threats after writing what she, without any justification, claimed to be an expose of Russian meddling in the Brexit vote. Let us be clear: Carole is talking shite on the Russians, as she does on almost everything, as I noted here, but death threats against journalists are always utterly wrong. I speak as a journalist who has received death threats.

I was due to fly back to Greece on Saturday with British Airways but I did not. It is not for the reason you think, there being no British Airways flights at all out of Heathrow and Gatwick due to an IT bollocks up, but for other reasons equally damning of the airline, now part of International Airlines Group (IAG).

One of the handful of lesbians who have broken my heart by rejecting my advances oh so cruelly tips me off how the organ for journalists, The Press Gazette, is bleating on about poor freelancers. Good God these guys are idiots.

In audio format because I cannot be bothered to make myself look even vaguely presentable, my weekly postcard starts with the murders of fellow journalists at Charlie Hebdo. I look at the reaction of the political establishment to the fact fascist pig Marie Le Pen and her Front Nationale and of the factually innacurate claims made by Nigel farage of UKIP. The left's double standards on free speech are again examined but then we move onto the demonisation of the Muslim community but our failure to be honest about the scale of the problem we face.

Fleet Street still has not touched this story because it is too busy sucking PR cock to cover the stench emanating from the City’s largest financial PR firm. We can revealed exclusively that Buchanan Communications has admitted that a staff member did wage a dirty tricks campaign against Range Resources shareholders campaigning to change the way Range is run.
Buchanan represents more AIM listed firms than any other PR agency and is owned by Sir Martin Sorrell’s WPP Group (WPP). Journalists on the nationals want PR firms to spoon feed them stories or cushy well paid jobs in PR when they fancy a move to the dark side so NO national paper dared touch this story.
Buchanan has now confirmed that its chairman Richard Oldworth has written to the dissenting Range shareholders apologising
