Weekly Video Postcard #79 – Why Scotland should vote YES! To Independence

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

After a morning hacking away frigana at the Greek Hovel, Tom’s message from the Greece of the South is for the Greece of the North – Scotland.

The independence debate is marked by delusion – on both sides. Tom suggests you watch former oil analyst Andrew Bell explain why the SNP oil numbers are all wrong HERE.

The reality is that Scotland has become a welfare addicted big Government economic failure. It is united with a Country with a different value set and approach to life. For its own sake Scotland needs independence so that its people can again learn the idea of self-reliance.

And English taxpayers have no moral obligation to fund a failed system of Government and economics. Speaking as an English taxpayer Tom is praying for a Yes vote.

Tom’s financial video postcard this week covers why he believes a stockmarket crash is on the cards and soon and can be viewed HERE

Amara Mining: Great Drilling Results and the Loathsome Peter Hain MP buys shares

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

We are well ahead on our tip to buy shares in Amara Mining (AMA) We told Nifty Fifty readers to buy at a 15.75p offer – the stock is now 23.75-24p. But there was interesting news last week implying that there is more upside still.

First came news of further drilling results from its key Yaoure project in Côte d'Ivoire demonstrating strong continuity and high grade areas. With further intercepts including 31 metres at 4.2g/t gold, 10 metres at 6.1g/t and 4 metres at 25.2g/t, the company emphasised that “this further increases our confidence in the Yaoure deposit and underlines the potential for selective mining of the CMA zone”.

Quindell now in “discussions” with Companies House over subsidiary accounts – what’s it trying to hide?

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

So what is Quindell (QPP) trying to hide now? I guess that Rob Terry is getting a bit pissed off that I keep unearthing red flags in the regulatory filings of his 54 subsidiaries ( or is it 57, you kind of lose count). But in trying to reveal as little as possible it seems that the Quinnovation Group is now in a spot of bother with Companies House.

Picture article: The summer draws to a close, grapes give way to prickly pears at the Greek Hovel

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

The summer is drawing to a close at the Greek Hovel. My summer lasts for just another three weeks and then I must return to Britain. I shall miss this place badly.  But the physical summer is also drawing to its close. Nature is changing.

The grapes that used to sit in great bunches hanging from the vines that surround this house are all gone. I had my fair share but so too did some incredibly large wasps who after a day’s gorging would buzz around inebriated and stuffed. The wasps have gone and are now preparing, unknowingly, for death. 

Meanwhile I start to gather firewood whenever I find it. Not in an organised fashion but on an ad hoc basis. There is plenty kicking around and it is now being stored in the rat room. I will need it for the fire when I come back in November and December for the olive harvest and frigana burning. By then it will be only 22 degrees during the day and at night it will be a tad chilly.

In the evenings as I head down to Eleni’s most excellent Kourounis taverna in Kambos for a Greek salad I now wear jeans and a shirt. By the time I head back there is a chill in the air. The weather is slowly turning. Do not get me wrong, it is 3 PM now and I sit in shorts only - the afternoon heat is still intense, just not quite what it was.

And so with no grapes to snack on I am now onto prickly pears which grow on two giant cactus like plants just behind the hovel.

Reader Poll – when will the stockmarket suffer a crash? I think soon!

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

In my weekend editorial on my Nifty Fifty website I will be explaining why I think that the stockmarket is likely to suffer a correction of 10-20% before Christmas. Others disagree – comrade Malcolm Stacey reckons that no such crash is on the cards. What do you think?

Why the SNP maths on Oil is all wrong – a former oil analyst (Andrew Bell) explains

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Andrew Bell of Red Rock Resources (RRR) and Regency Mines (RGM) like me started his life as an oil analyst.  Bell is a Scot living in England and, I sense, supports the Union. As an English taxpayer I cannot pray hard enough for the welfare addicted Money Tree worshipping Greece of the North to vote for independence as I explain HERE. But Bell adds to the debate in a very well argued video showing how SNP assumptions about Scottish oil revenues are quite simply sheer fantasy.

51% of 5 million welfare addicts set to vote for economic hara-kiri: Poll says Scots will vote yes in #IndyRef – Great News!

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

From Greece in the South I have been watching the run up to the referendum debate in the Greece of the North with some amusement. Ever since Gordon Brown lent his weight to the No campaign, Scots have been flocking to the Yes camp in increasing numbers and a poll tonight suggests 51% will vote for independence. As an English taxpayer I am delighted, the sooner the welfare addicted scroungers piss off the better.

89% of Scots are net takers from the State. Scotland has every year bar one (1976) been a net taker from England since the Act of Union. All mainstream Scots political parties are Money Tree worshippers and consistently demand that Government spends more and more. That is Scotland’s problem, it has created a nation of welfare junkies.

The debate seems to have been of an abysmal standard. One side invents major new oil fields which the English wish to steal, while Call Me Dave warns Scots that without England they are more vulnerable to Al-Qaeda/ISIS attacks. Yeah right…I know that many ISIS fighters come from places like Somalia but even they would find 95% of urban Scotland a bit of a shit hole. And imagine if an ISIS fighter was captured by the Scots. Stick him in a room with a bunch of overweight, chain smoking workshy Glaswegians and after 24 hours of them bleating on about how England causes all their problems, the Islamofascist would beg for mercy and reveal all.

As an English taxpayer I cannot wait to have the economic burden of Scotland removed as soon as possible. I am also praying

E-mail Pest of the week & guess what he wants me to stop writing about?

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Do you think that Mr Richard Woodhouse owns shares in a certain highly discussed AIM stock? I do. This charming fellow has just sent me this unsolicited email:

rich.woodhouse84@hotmail.co.uk 

Hopefully QPP will nail you in court and you may finally pipe down. So so boring... People are bored of the QPP thing now. Personally I think you are an attention seeker with low self-esteem. Drop a few lbs matey and lose a chin or two... you will feel a lot better about yourself and then won’t have to ruin peoples investments with your 'revelations' to make yourself feel good. Enjoy your bank holiday. 

Hmmm..

Quindell & Himex: how many shares in itself has Quindell sold this time? And More.

Share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

The last time that the vendor of Himex sold a business to a Rob Terry run company it was sold for £50 million. At the same time certain other related businesses were lobbed into the pot and all in all it cost The Innovation Group c£60 million all in goodwill which was all written off within a year. Cosy was a cosy deal for some but not for Rob Terry believers – as explained HERE. Will it be different this time? I now refer you to the 2014 interims from Quindell and the year to March 2013 results for Himex which you can see HERE. Red Flags for lunch anyone?
