Dishonest journalism or bad journalism or both: Ian Cowie of the Sunday Times on Versarien

At least Cowie, one of Britain’s most senior personal finance journalists, is honest that he is a poltroon, admitting to buying shares in Versarien (VRS) at 177p. They closed Friday at just 3.5p although in his column today where he explains why he is hanging on for a bounce, Cowie says the shares are 5p. But the dishonesty of the journalism is epic.

Versarien may have sacked loathsome shyster Neill Ricketts but he is still lying!

There seems some uncertainty among some investors as to the departure of the loathsome Neill Ricketts from cash strapped Versarien (VRS). Some still think he remains as a consultant or in some other role. Au contraire. He has left the building. And others seem to think he actually resigned. Again no, he was forced out by the board. I have been in contact with advisers on the subject of apologies, meanwhile Ricketts carries on lying.

BREAKING: So how many patents does Versarien actually have? 130? What do you think?

Now that Neill Ricketts has been resigned as CEO of Versarien (VRS) the board and its PR advisors need to get to grips urgently with some of the outrageous claims made by the loathsome old barstool. For only when investors are told the ghastly truth can disgraced Nomad SP Angel consider allowing a bailout fund raise. And, as I pointed out in bearcast, a string of apologies are also needed to show that the culture has changed at Versarien and is no longer toxic. In terms of the truth, we might start with Ricketts’ claims about IP.

Versarien and its 130 claimed patents and trademarks part 2

Conflating the number of patents and trademarks is a bit like myself conflating the number of times I have drunk ouzo and the number of times Cheryl Cole has seduced me. They are both pleasurable just as patents and trademarks are both IP but they are different things. It is not common for people to act in both disciplines; either in respect of IP or pleasure.

BREAKING: Versarien and the 130 claimed patents Part 1

In the abjectly bad results for the 18 months to 30th September one of the proud boasts of loathsome and porcine CEO Neill Ricketts was "We have secured IP with over 130 patents and trademarks." I have now engaged with a specialist IP lawyer to examine that claim. This may be a long series, but here is an appetizer....

There will be another treat later today for this Versarien shareholder on the ADVFN Asylum: meet impoverished moron squire0076.

Old squire0076 has been long and strong all the way down from almost two quid to today’s 5.15p. The bad news for him and other bulls in the last redoubt at Versarien (VRS) is that I have yet another expose coming later today, the start of a new series. But squire does not care, this is his analysis of the situation yesterday:
