Photo Article: Attending the WH Ireland AGM with Jim Bagot: CEO Killingbeck behaves like a prize tool

I attended the AGM of WH Ireland on Thursday Morning. At the door I was greeted by a rudy faved individual who seemed a bit posh to be a security guard and who clearly knew who I was "Good Morning Mr Winnifrith" he said before asking if I had the authority to be allowed in. Of course I did. I was the appointed corporate representitive of a company which owned ten shares in WH Ireland and I had all the paperwork to prove it. After a while I established that this besuited bully boy was in fact WH Ireland CEO Richard Killingbeck, doubling up as a fascist security guard.

Mitie - these Politically Correct Nazis do not do irony

I read in the Sunday Times that the PC Nazis are on the warpath against the ten remaining FTSE 350 companies that have had the decency not to appoint a woman to the board. They will either do as they or told or the PC fascists will be voting out existing directors on this one principle.

Advanced Oncotherapy AGM - its avin a bubble

Sadly I decided to rush up to Warwick to see my father on Friday so I missed out on attending the GM of Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO). The heading for bankruptcy company put out a statement which, needless to say, is a 100% rum and coke. Advanced was covered in the bears session at UK Investor Show on Saturday and we will have a video up of that in due course. Now back to that GM where the statement comes with our translation in bold

How the Snap Election Will Affect Your Share Prices

Hello Share Pillagers. We all should have known something big was going to happen by the way shares were marked down heavily after the Easter break. On Easter Monday, when our stock market was closed, the US version was open. During that session, American shares rose by about 1%. That usually means British shares rise in tandem, but not this time.

TODAY: Patience, patience, patience and yet more patience - that is the key to making money from shares

Making money from shares is simple. Well it should be. Buy cheap. Hold. Hold. Hold. Hold, and finally sell when the shares have delivered you big gains. Where so many folks go wrong is getting impatient and not being prepared to hold, hold, hold. Let us tell you about Symphony Environmental (SYM) which we tipped at a 6.75p offer just over three years ago. It did nothing for ages....

African Potash - the legal case for victims of the fraud almost underway

Before I call it a day I want to see the victims of the African Potash (AFPO) fraud get some of their money back, even if some of those victims were fairly beastly to me as I exposed the fraud. Friday's bombshell from Potash shows the game is up but the big frauds happened before this worthless enterprise was booted off AIM. To that end I have been working to help put together a legal action. That action is now almost underway and Peter Petyt, the man running things, wrote to more than 50 victims who have come forward at the weekend. If you lost money and want to try to get it back it is not too late to contact Peter. His letter & contact details follow.

You are hereby on notice as retail bubbles start to pop

Artificial political constructs never last. The EU is great for the “elites” in Brussels; not so much for the average citizen and the tragedy of monetary union is that Europe's political class has gone to extreme lengths to hold the euro together regardless of underlying economic logic. But this has only perpetuated and exacerbated the coming political crisis. "Monetary union has created a conflict between a centralised elite on the one hand, and the forces of democracy at the national level on the other. This is extraordinarily dangerous,” Mervyn King wrote in his recent book 'The End of Alchemy'.

Advanced Oncotherapy – more spoofery as NED buys yet more shares

As ever, this is just a spoof in order to encourage more buying in the market so as to allow Bracknor to offload more of its death-spiral conversion shares as Advanced hopes and prays for the next £1.235 million tranche of funding before the coffers run dry.
