I have in my hand a little piece of paper which means peace in our time said Andalas (ADL) boss Dave "the rule breaker" Whitby as he announced yet another great deal for his company. But like all the other pieces of paper that he has waved in front of his labotomised army of groupies led by cardboard box dwelling sheep shagger Justin the Clown, it is just a worthless piece of paper - just like an Andalas share certificate. Hat tip to Brokerman Dan for that joke.

He may be a sheep shagger but Martin Luke of Vox Markets is not a bad bloke and at UK Investor Show he gave a talk on money management or portfolio management which is far less dull than it sounds. Enjoy.

AIM listed biotech Reneuron (RENE) has today announced that it has completed the move of all of its operations from Surrey to Pencoed, Bridgend, Wales. Hooray...welcome to the most expensive job creation programme in history paid for with YOUR money.
This deal was first announced two years ago and involved the Welsh Assembly handing over a grant of £7.8 million to get the company to move from Surrey, where it employed 25 folks at the time, to the land of the Sheep Shaggers.
You will note that Wales is a net taker

Oh dear, I fear that I won’t be getting very many Christmas cards from the financial PR industry this year. My book on how many I will receive is currently running at 1-2 but on balance I’d be a seller. I seem to have offended yet another operative because I am not in the business of writing universally nice articles. Such is the self-importance of these folks that they think I actually give a damn. In for a penny…. Let’s examine the role of financial PR in the AIM Cesspit.
You may remember that I had a bit of a falling out with uber-prude PR bird Kay Larsen of College Group who seems to think that I have a thing against sheep shaggers, oops sorry meant to say Welsh people - not that any of them are in fact animal molesters - and also publish pornography. College Hill is now not returning calls made by staff at www.Shareprophets.com . Does this stop the 19 writers on that site covering companies daft enough to pay College Group £10,000 a month to manage its media relations? Not in the slightest. Does it affect our coverage? Er…not in the slightest. Companies who think that writing a cheque to some daft parasites each month means that they can manage how and where they are covered are just kidding themselves.
And so to my next fallout which is with YellowJersey PR, which makes me think somehow of custard and cowardice. Its gripe is that it represents Arian Silver (AGQ) where, on www.shareprophets.com I have flagged up its various funding issues like a failure to get a placing away.
In case you missed that scoop it appeared here
That is apparently not the sort of coverage YellowCustard’s clients want. I am sorry to hear that. And so
