Another ouzo says Vangelis - after an hour of subbing Zak Mir I deserve it

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I was just planning to return to the Greek Hovel after an hour of subbing Zak Mir's golden prose. I had forgotten just how appalling is the way that he mangles the English language and am feeling pretty shell shocked. It has taken two ouzos to get this far and my task is only 30% done. 

And at that point I heard a cry from the bar at the Kourounis taverna "Tom, ouzo".

Karadimili Conversations - Tuscany in Greece

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Kardamili has no sandy beaches and so is not a family resort. It has no bars and cafes serving fish and chips, burgers and cheap lager. Folks seeking sun, sea, sand and burgers and a pint of Fosters head to Stoupa down the road. Kardamili is an oasis of gentility which the Mrs rather prefers - for reasons I cannot understand - to The Greek Hovel and life in Kambos. And so last week I swapped the hovel for six days in a luxury hotel. It's a hard life.

A fortnight ago Kardamili hosted a Norwegian jazz festival.

An English couple walk in to the Kourounis taverna in Kambos

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

After a hard day at the PC and in the field, braving the snakes to poison frigana, I plan to spend a relaxing evening at the Kourounis taverna in my home village of Kambos. Lovely Eleni has made me a Greek salad covered with herbs and drizzled with home produced olive oil and so far it is just coke zeros but I may allow myself an ouzo later. In the village where we have no tourists it is just me and the regulars. They chat. I tap away on my PC and say Yassas and Kale-nichta as required.

But an English couple has just walked in.

The Quindell deal has been a disaster for Slater & Gordon - Here are the maths

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Short Slater & Gordon has been a cracking trade ever since it announced the purchase of Quindell Legal Services. For British bears the weakening of the overvalued Aussie Dollar has been a bonus. The maths are shocking (and of course will get worse as the various Quindell frauds unravel).

Sefton - Time it fessed up

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Shares in Sefton are drifting today - down to 0.27p - but the company is still capitalised at almost £8 million but is now down to its last £300,000 of cash and as yet has no CEO and no deal. The share price discounts a lot but according to certain bloggers deals are in the bag. Perhaps it is time for Sefton to come clean on 4 critical points:

Money Tree worshipping mad leftie Malcolm Stacey talking rot again

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I wonder if it was his years at the BBC which saw my pal Comrade Malcolm Stacey infected with the mad lefty virus. Becuase the old Money Tree worshipper does talk some awful rot and today's column from him HERE is a classic. I feel forced to point out in the interests of balance why he is spouting total gibberish.

The old leftie states:

The new British government will continue austerity. Sadly, that is not good news for the less well off, but it won’t affect the wealthy very much. And it will bring the national debt down.

So the wicked Tories will continue austerity will they? I wish they would. In fact I wish they had started austerity five years ago but they have not. Government spending has risen year on year since 2010 under the wicked Tories and will continue to rise. Some austerity.

And it gets worse
