There are so many scandals and I cover the hypocrisy of the left over fallen virtue signaller Brendan Cox and the double standard shown regarding nonces in the church and at Oxfam. But the real scandals are that there are too many charities, that taxpayers cash is wasted on too many of them and that they do not work. Poor folks in third world shitholes need capitalism not NGOs.

If you do not follow my financial writings you will not be aware of the Telit PLC scandal which I broke yesterday. This is a big high profile stockmarket listed company and what I revealed HERE was just amazing. Jaw dropping. The shares have duly crashed.
I have been wanting to expose Telit for years and have oft warned that it is an accident waiting to happen. I can now see no outcome other than 0p as I explained HERE. Since yesterday morning I have been on the phone on email chatting about this company almost non stop. I have served up nine articles and a podcast (as well as a few other articles on other matters). Ten pieces in thirty hours (with eight hours off for sleep and another four for Joshua care) is pretty good going. I am utterly drained.
Telit could call in the receivers this afternoon and I think I'd struggle to write. Thankfully while that will be the end game I don't think it will happen today so I can wind down and watch an old Inspector Morse with my three legged cat Oakley. But episodes like this are why i write. Even the Mrs got caught up in the excitement and brought supper to my desk last night so I could crack on. This sort of episode she now understands. It is a GOTCHA moment.
Of course the praise is quite pleasant too. Tweets like the one below from a chap called Steve, as well as emails have been flooding in. The Israeli press has been in contact as this is as Israeli run outfit.
Gotta hand it to @TomWinnifrith. For all his foibles he is second to none at finding AIM frauds and dodgy practice. 👏
Positive recognition of your work is always pleasing. But I can live without that. What really gives me a kick is the internal buzz you get from exposing someone then turning the screw with some jokes and hard follow up pieces. It is going for the kill and knowing you are on the side of right.
Hopefully the past 24 hours reduce my gaping deficit with St Peter but even if it does not it has been such fun. And I earn money for having that fun. Why would I ever quit such a job?

Two and a bit weeks ago I relayed on this website details of a meeting that I had with the current Head Master of Warwick School to discuss physical abuse that I suffered at the hands of a teacher Geoffrey Eve 38 years ago. The HM said swift action would be taken as Eve is still alive. I have heard nothing since but now another former pupil has stepped forward to recount his memories of Mr Eve. This scandal will grow and Warwick needs to address it rapidly for it is a scandal not only about abuse but about the way the School covered it all up so ensuring more boys suffered.
The post and an email with a few names blocked out appear below. I would urge Warwick to now contact all pupils who were exposed to this sadistic old bastard to inform them that this matter is going to the Police and that if the Old Bill will not act Warwick will pay for a lawyer to conduct a full independent enquiry which it will publish so that Eve is punished, in some way, for his crimes.
This little old man should not be allowed to enjoy his last years in peace. He inflicted pain and misery on god knows how many little boys. And we deserve justice. The post is below:
Tom. It's a small world. I also went to Warwick and last night I had dinner in Cambridge with another ex pupil who I haven't seen since I left Warwick some 34 years ago. Among topics of conversation over dinner - the systematic and sadistic abuse of pupils one Geoffrey Eve brother of famous TV and film star Trevor Eve! I think many of us are surprised that he never got found out or brought to justice. Even when he beat a partially deaf boy so badly that he broke his hearing aid the school just hushed it all up and pretended nothing had happened. How many more people out there remember this monster?
I then corresponded with this chap who is a successful businessman and wrote:
Funny how this all came up in conversation over dinner last night about our schooldays and your article popped up this morning when I Googled “Geoff Eve Teacher Abuse”…
I left Warwick after O levels in xxxx but Mr Eve’s evil was most evident when I was in 3A in the junior school. He was by no means the only abuser at the school but was one of the most unpleasant. I have absolutely no doubt that the other teachers and the junior head, Mr Marshall were well aware of his violence but did nothing to stop it.
My friend from last night, xxxx xxxxx remembers it as vividly as I do. I have copied him in on this reply.
There must be hundreds of other pupils from that era that can corroborate this. Quite possibly the school should pass it on to the police. Regardless of how old or frail he now is, Mr Eve never showed his victims any mercy so why should we pity him?
I believe that Warwick should contact all those exposed to Eve and also the still living members of the junior school staff, to ascertain the extent of his abuse. Pro tem while it appears to maintain a silence on the matter I shall continue to flag this up and am encouraginhg any other victims to contact the School (and me) to instill a sense of urgency on the HM.
The victims of abuser Geoffrey Eve have waited long enough for justice.

It really can be hard keeping up on all the scandals so apologies if I have missed any from the last 24 hours. Lets start over at the Clinton Foundation, a charity!
*Chelsea Clinton got the Foundation to pay for her $3 million wedding and fund her lavish lifestyle
*Hillary passed confidential Government documents on the Greek financial crisis to Chelsea's husband who er...trades Greek bonds.
*Security conscious Hillary got her domestic maid to print off "Mop Secret" emails and documents
* The man who tried to attack Donald Trump at a rally last night was a campaign volunteer for Hillary and has registered his dead mother to vote.
* Chelsea used the Foundation to help raise money for her husband's hedge fund, a new variant on "Pay to Play"
*New Leaked emails have the Clinton Foundation admitting it broke the law.
And it is still only late morning EST.

Tessa Jowell was the woman who publicly ditched her husband David Mills as he became embroiled in a Silvio Berlusconi corruption scandal. Mills was exiled to my father's village of Shipston where the socialist millionaires kept a country farm as a compliment to their North London mansion. Jowell got to stay with the urban sophisticates. Out here in the boonies folks did not buy the seperation story as la Jowell kept on making appearances up here and, lo and behold, after Tessa's political career came to an end there was a miraculous reconciliation with Mills. The political elite actuallythink that we are so stupid that we buy this sort of horseshit don't they? Now Tessa makes the most bonkers of claims regarding TeamGB and its Olympics success.
With a record medal haul in Rio it is going to be hard for TeamGB to do better in Toyko in four years time. But if we do see a slip back, Tessa knows why. Brexit. Natch. The following passage appears in today's Independent.
Privately, UK Sport, the body that chooses where to spend the roughly £450m per four-year cycle that is available for elite sport, are (sic) fearful of the consequences of a general economic downturn or even recession even before the next games.
According to Labour’s former Olympics Minister Dame Tessa Jowell: “If, in 2020, we’re looking back at a team GB that has not performed at the level that it did in Rio or in London then it will be fair to say that Brexit was one of the reasons.
While spending on elite sport has been maintained in the wake of the UK’s hugely successful home Olympics four years ago, with the consequences clear to see in Rio 2016, local facilities have faced severe cuts ever since 2008, a course of action that eventually, inevitably affects the top end.
Starting at the bottom. Local and school sporting facilities have seen cuts since 2008. But even in 2008 there were far fewer playing fields and school fields than in, say, the 1970s. And of course that was in the middle of the 1960-1996 medals drought era. There is no evidence that worse local facilities and TeamGB's medals haul is in any way linked.
Indeed as I noted earlier when comparing TeamGB 2016 with East Germany in 1974, what determines medals success is the amount chucked at elite sport by the State.
So for Tessa to be correct she would need a) there to be a recession and b) the Government to respond to weaker finances by cutting spending on elite sport and c) Brexit to be to blame for that recession There is at this stage absolutely no evidence that Brexit has slowed the economy. In fact the weaker pound has seen the economy race ahead since Brexit while other countries see greater slowdown. Moreover the Government has not said that it will cut the amount it chucks at the "circuses" and for reasons explained in that podcast, I bet socialist Tessa a glass of champagne at the White Bear, that this is the last sort of spending that the Wicked Tories will slash.
The logic of EU remainer Tessa Jowell is truly pitiful. That the Independent prints this piffle without challenge perhaps explains the problems that it has in retaining any readers at all.
