Even when I don't like what you're writing I enjoy reading it. Keep up the good work.”

Thank you Luke. That is much appreciated.

Weekly Prize Caption Contest: Peace & Love on its way to the EU’s fave murderous Islamofascist regime edition

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

It did not gain much coverage in the UK press but last week the Israeli Navy intercepted a boat called the Klos C which was on its way from Iran, carrying a very special cargo, ultimately destined for the Hamas regime in Gaza.

This is the regime which receives vast amounts of funding from the EU every year. It is a regime which, according to the EU and other apologists for any crime committed against Israel is peace living and only acts in defence. So what was the Klos C carrying?

It was carrying missiles with the ability to hit any spot within the State of Israel and to kill Jews. For that is what Hamas is committed to. Of course when the Israeli Defence Forces intercepts ships with cargos ultimately bound for Gaza to stop deathly weapons getting through this is viewed as an act of aggression by its apologists in the West.

And so I ask you for suitable captions for this picture, the winner getting a discount voucher to Maribelle's



For what it is worth my entry is: “Fresh from creating harmony to the Ukraine, EU foreign minister Baroness Ashton issues a message of thanks to the people of Iran for their assistance in creating a one-state final solution to the problems in Palestine.”

Last week I asked you for captions to this picture of a man born with a silver spoon in his mouth who has never done a useful day’s work in his life and also of Prince Phillip.



The impartial judge (my cat Tara) reckons that the best entry came from me, viz:

 "Okay that is Fergie taken care of now where should we put Boris Johnson?"

I hope that you can do better than me this week – post your entries in the comments section below.

Weekly video postcard #57 – Reflections on the “Greek” Graves of my Great Uncles Edition

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Rather a personal as opposed to a political postcard this week. For the next four weeks my life is almost 100% centred on preparing for the UK Investor Show on April 5. If you have NOT booked a ticket yet, shame on you – book now HERE.

But what to do afterwards? I shall be absolutely exhausted. I am already but slog on. And so it will be off to Greece with my rucksack for a month’s walking. Partly with the Mrs, partly alone as I search out the graves of two Great Uncles, the only brothers of my father’s mother who are meant to be buried there. I recount their deaths (1931 and WW2) and their stories in this postcard.

My weekly financial video postcard “Why do I do it?” sees me discussing why I “go after” companies on the AIM Cesspit. It can be viewed HERE

Come on Wales, Reflections on Ireland – Paul you are too calculating show Celtic loyalty!

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

My new Welsh friend Paul emails me before the Ireland match to say that he is rooting for Italy as part of some diabolical calculation allowing his beloved sheep-shaggers to win the Six nations Championship. Hmmmmm.

Despite a catalogue of errors Ireland utterly routed Italy yesterday. It was an emotional Dublin send off for Brian O’Driscoll, the greatest ever Ireland player. My father and I watched and as BOD was interviewed post match, the emotion poured over in Shipston-on-Stour as I am sure it did in every outpost of the diaspora. The way the points stack up, barring some utter freak, if Ireland can manage to defeat the hit or miss Froggies in Paris, the Championship is ours. Surely God wishes to reward his loyal servant BOD thus?

And now to Wales vs. England. For me there are no diabolical calculations. Indeed shame on you Paul for thinking that way. Paul says that he is so excited about today’s game that he cannot sleep. I would suggest that he tries counting sheep. But I guess that might make him even more excited. I digress.

I can put aside the fact that the mother of my daughter (Big Nose) will be sitting at home munching nuts nervously as she roots for Wales. I am beyond that for I also know that my daughter will be dressed in a Welsh jersey or National dress, belting out the National Anthem, passionately roaring on the men in red.

This is a simple matter. The Old Enemy are playing. Thus naturally my mind is wired to support the other side. I do not feel this way about soccer – in Ireland’s absence I will cheer for England in the World Cup for as long as its campaign lasts which will not be very long. I gather that England are 33-1 to win the World Cup. For those who do not understand betting that means that if you wager £10 on England you will lose £10.

No, this is just a rugby thing. I think of the swagger

Blogging maestro Paul Scott adds to his Globo short – here’s why

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

5 Star rated (by me) share blogging supremo Paul Scott posted a comment at the foot of my most recent humble offering on Globo (GBO) which is frankly far better than the piece itself. In it he explains why he has added to his short in Globo. I think this merits a wider audience and so republish the comment as an article. 

Even a few months ago if Paul or I commented on Globo adversely the Bulletin Board Morons (Globoista Brigade) would have poured on the abuse. But I sense that while die-hards who will remain loyal to the cause to the bitter end remain, their ranks are thinning. And after last week they are thinning fast. This argument is almost won and I would also regard this as a slam dunk short. Enough of me.over to the maestro.  Paul writes:

Verdes Management and the Method in the Madness of the £750,000 investment – a chat with David Newton

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Two day ago my colleague Ben Turney rightly pointed out that whoever invested £750,000 in perennial dog Verdes (VMP) at 0.75p (giving it a £7 million valuation when the only asset is cash of c£550,000) was insane. So who is this lunatic? I tracked him down and the reality is that he is incredibly switched on… let me explain. 

The investor is a new fund The Helium Rising Stars Fund. It is run by a well-regarded “grey hair” David Newton. Newton already manages the Helium Special Situations Fund. It had made 440% in eight years. That is a compound rate of growth of 24% per annum, 1 percentage point better than Warren Buffett.

Phorm & Nomad Liberum – AIM regulation having a butchers

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Twenty four hours ago I asked a number of questions of Phorm (PHRM) and its ex Nomad Liberum regarding the Chinese investment promised but not delivered in 2012. News of this “investment” caused the stock to rocket allowing a placing at 125p (the shares are now 11p) but it never happened. 

Needless to say neither Phorm nor Liberum seem terribly keen to answer my questions. Perhaps they will be more forthcoming with others.

The Mrs Catnaps my cats who are now officially Indian

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

My poor cats, they must be getting culturally confused. Tara & Oakley were born in the Isle of Man although like 99% of Manx Cats they have full tails. Rescued by me from the MSPCA they then came over to England with me but having to watch me heaping abuse on England whenever the rugby is on. So are we Irish daddy?

Of course on Sunday they will suffer extra confusion as this household stands shoulder to shoulder with our Celtic brothers in Wales. Come on the sheep shaggers please put the old enemy to the sword. Humiliate them!

But the confusion gets worse for in taking them to a new vet for their booster jabs the Mrs made the appointment. Being a deluded lefty, the Mrs is not Mrs Winnifrith but has retained her own (Indian) surname. What say you? Political correctness gone mad?

As such the cats have come back with a form showing that they too now have an Indian surname. Born Manx, naturalised English, adopted Anglo Irish and now finally Indian. Such is the melting pot that is Britain today but it is understandable if Tara and Oakley are this morning feeling a little culturally confused.

Incidentally the vet said both cats were in great nick although Oakley (the one with three legs) was a little on the plump side and could do with a bit more exercise. Plus ca change on that front.

Globo – shares tank – it says nothing amiss – Evil Knievil says “add to your short”

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

AIM Cesspit posterboy Globo (GBO) has put out a statement saying that there is no reason for its shares to have tanked. The market is not impressed and the stock now trades at just 48p having lost almost one third of its value in two days. Worse may be to come. 

Globo refers worried investors to its upbeat trading statement of 28th January. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

It then clarifies why it has changed auditors for the second time in six months but  - as we explained yesterday HERE – questions over the timing of statements remain.

Worse still
