Breaking - sharp movements on Betfair: Oxi set to win in Greece!

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

The betting markets have a better record of calling elections than opinion polls in recent times and so take note - there have been heavy betting on Betfair in the past three hours - and that betting is on Oxi! winning here in the Greek Referendum. Hooray - that calls for an ouzo.

Covering up fraud is complex and the paperwork can catch up on you – Quindell & Rob Fielding

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

In order to create the momentous fraud that was Quindell (QPP), Rob Terry established 191 subsidiaries. Most traded with each other. Some were issued with Quindell shares which they then dumped to allow them to “buy” bogus services from other Quindell companies. Monies were borrowed and leant so that by late 2014 even Quindell could not keep track of what was going on.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - 5 July: Greece, China, Quindell & house prices

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Polls close here in Athens in just over three hours. I shall shortly head off to my local polling station to have a final butchers and then to Syntagma Square to sit underneath the Greek parliament as the results come in. I shall blog away here on ShareProphets as Greece decides whether it is Oxi or nai. Pro tem this podcast covers Greece, China, Quindell and UK House prices.

This podcast is recorded in the most excellent Anthropology cafe in Athens which I heartily recommend - although it really needs to start stocking ouzo

And fear not Champagne Charlie Gibson fans, I had not forgotten about you. Just a reminder of why the Edison analyst is a convicted felon HERE and as a bonus a reminder of how it is not only the poor he screws HERE - and a reminder of why I feel the urge to remind you all HERE

Syriza – Turnout in Athens High – good for Oxi – meanwhile Greece down to last 500 million – big bank is teetering – Alpha Bank?

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Oh what drama – the polls here in Greece are close but the governing Syriza party is reporting a high turnout in Athens which is very good news for the Oxi side. I noted earlier that I was expecting 70% turnout here in the Capital (higher than the 67% General Election) but Syriza reckons it could be higher still.

Bad news Chris Booker, I think we are with the Commies: a spoiled Oxi Vote which may let Nai win in Greece

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I had a long chat last night with my Eurosceptic Uncle and godfather Christopher Booker and who like me is hoping that Greece votes Oxi.  But he knows that we have some strange bedfellows in the Oxi camp.

British Eurosceptics are usually on the right. We want the Euro to fail. As I noted on Friday the Oxi camp here want to have their cake and eat it: they want no austerity, debt write-offs and to stay in the Euro. They are lefties. Hearing the message of support to the Oxi rally from the old murderer Gerry Adams makes both Chris and I wonder about our bedfellows. Oh…as an added bonus the Nazis of Golden Dawn are also strong supporters of Oxi! Truly we travel in strange company.

But there is a third way: Kappa Kappa, the hard-line commies. They are today urging folks to vote Oxi but then to spoil their ballot paper. Kappa Kappa got 5% in the General Election and if half its supporters toe the party line that could well be enough to deliver victory to the Nai camp.

A cautionary note – The Daily Mail is lying about Greece

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I am horrified to see today’s Mail on Sunday spout complete lies about Greece. It saddens me that this paper pays folks like Liz Jones to write sensationalist crap.

We were both (apparently) at the same mass rally in Syntagma Square on Friday. I encountered nothing but calm and peace  and a duck among the 50,000 crowd. I did not feel threatened for a second. Liz Jones reports Police firing stun grenades and seems to have got into a bit of a state. There might be the odd hothead everywhere but the Oxi rally was call, determined and dignified.

Liz reports that the Oxi camp want to turn their backs on the Euro and EU. I wish. The Oxi camp want to say in the Euro but believe they can do that without austerity and with debt relief. I do not think Liz has been listening to anyone here.

Liz and her colleagues report that shops are running out of food. Sorry but, overwhelmingly, that is not true. That PM Alex Tspiras

Photo Article: Greek Referendum: Turnout will be 70%, turnout at ATMs 90%

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

And so we are off with the great Greek Referendum and it looks like it will go to the wire. I have been to my local polling station and arriving just as the Church next door finished its service there was a mini surge. But it is not at the schools across Greece where the real lines are forming.

David Lenigas Saint or Serial Sinner, Quindell worth 0p? and is now Gold’s moment?

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

The July edition of UK Investor Magazine went live last night. It is free to access and the cover story is “David Lenigas, saint or serial sinner” – a joint effort by myself and the Sith Lord Zak Mir. There are a couple of company profiles, three stocks to buy and three to sell. One of those is Quindell which really could be worth 0p again! And there is more…

Richard Poulden explains why gold really will sparkle this year, Zak Mir interviews Neil Ritson of Solo Oil, there is a share tip from Beaufort and the house view on Greece and why it should vote Oxi.

Not a reporter so I can have another beer

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

As I posted a last few photos on line I started chatting to three chaps on the table next to me in the café. Like half the folks in Athens these days  they were reporters, photo journalists actually, here for the referendum. They have deadlines. They have to get up at 6 AM (4 AM your time) to capture the polls opening at 7 AM.

Me? I have no such deadlines. I comment. So I have no deadlines. You can get the photos and bland coverage anywhere. I can’t hope to trump that. I comment and observe. I don’t report.

So I can have another beer. Then snore soundly tonight and wander along to a polling station whenever I want. Whose life seems more attractive?

Signomi, ena beera
