Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: No Giles McDonogh falling house prices is good news

I start with a slam dunk political bet in the wake of Donald Trump's looming arrest - a clean sweep for the Republicans in 2024, as I explained a couple of weeks ago HERE. Then onto why house prices falling at the fastest rate for 14 years ( a misleading headline) are to be welcomed but not if you are long Purplebricks (PURP) or the housebuilders. Not that I'd necessarily go short either. Today's ouzo is sponsored by Asimilar (ASLR). I also cover Genedrive (GDR) and the placing it will not 'fess to although it is clearly underway. Then I look at Pensana (PRE) where yakking on about climate change and hiring stacks of lesbians from Islington seems not to have prevented a bit of a looming cash crisis. How, I wonder, do folks in London N1 describe a fat lady in a woke way? Hey Magna Carta, guess what I forgot to mention today? HERE is a clue

One last time, Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks Annual 34 mile walk – we are on!

This will be the sixth walk and we have agreed the last. Maybe Lucian and I will do something different next year, maybe not. The old boy did turn 60 last year. The date is now set for June 17 and we will walk the 34 miles from Winchester to the Woodlarks camp. So far those signed up are:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Paul Atherley do you really think this EU fake news will help you pull young women, even in Islington?

I start with the 4 week delay to what is laughably called Freedom Day here in Airstrip One. It makes me so angry as there is no justification for it. Next up more woke nonsense from Pensana (PRE), before a look at Colin Bird’s quartet of mining juniors and asking if it is worth the risk? Finally Tavistock Investments (TAVI) – too good to be true?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: is my old chum Paul Atherley suffering from Islingtonitis, Guardian reading derangement syndrome?

In today’s podcast I look at Pensana Rare Earths (PRE), Verditek (VDTK), Zenith Energy (ZEN), Inspirit (INSP) where there is a rebellion about to break out and, natch, I back the rebels, Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Superdry (SDRY).

Why David Scott’s ‘The Tax System Explained in Beer’ article was wrong

Yesterday, David Scott wrote ‘The Tax System Explained in Beer’,  a well-known parable about the tax system if it was 10 guys drinking in a pub. He missed the point.

Notes from Underground: I can see 50% profit in my future

Finally, after all these years, I have hit upon a 50% profit system, and it was discovered when I was buying almond milk. (I DO live in Islington.) So I am at Sainbury's, and they have posted signs all over the tills: "We do not accept the old £1 coin." Yet some poor sod was trying to buy his kale smoothie (Islington, right?) but the cashier was denying his coins.

Saturday caption Contest - March to end Austerity now!

The UK has the highest national debt in the EU, we are running a stonking budget deficit so that debt is growing each year and spending on heath, education, welfare, foreign aid and the works has risen year on year under the wicked Tories. Bastards. That's what I call austerity! But it seems the nation wants a change and poor students, welfare recipients, millionaires from Islington and public sector workers, only kept alive by food banks, will be marching again today in London to demand that the General Election result be over-turned. End austerity now by supplying a caption for the photo below in the comments section - the deadline is midnight tonight ( 1 July).

The fake news Guardian - misleading headline on Brexit and EU workers leaving

I bet the BBC News picks up on it and runs with it too. But its sister publication is quick out of the blocks...The Guardian today runs with a raft of misleading headlines and other fake news as is its wont but the one on Brexit driving EU workers abroad wins the prize. The left wing rag with plunging sales and spiralling losses states: "Almost half of highly skilled EU workers 'could leave UK within five years". The sub head is "Deloitte study finds 47% were considering leaving after Brexit, while overall one-third of non-British workers could leave". Right, okay but hang on what did the survey actually say and was it big enough to be statistically valid?

House Price crash on the way? New data from Nationwide

I told you so. Many times. Property is a global asset class. The price of top-end properties in London is linked to those in San Francisco, New York & Vancouver. And the Chelsea ripple means that where London leads the rest of the UK follows. Put simply, if smug bastards in Islington cannot cash in their flats they won't be buying townhouses in Clifton, Bristol. And if smug bastards there can't cash in they wont be buying small houses for their ghastly brats in poorer parts of Bristol. Etc. etc. etc.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: The mystery of the dog Sabien and the bark in the night

Those who read Sherlock Holmes will understand the title. In this podcast I mention Islington in EU and a chat with Chris Booker - more on that HERE. I look at Blancco Technology (BLTG), Sabien (SNT), Quadrise (QFI), Prairie Minerals (PDZ) and Lionsgold (LION).

Bowleven - Corporate Governance Fucktards ISS & PIRC show themselves up in backing discredited board

In reality corporate governance bodies such as PIRC and ISS are, these days, part of the establishment so when it comes to crony capitalist companies on AIM they are part of the problem not the solution. This is demonstrated in spades today by events at Bowleven (BLVN)

PHOTO: Jim Mellon's bully boy security guards march Pizza Hardman Darren Atwater out of minor trade show marked by empty seats

Pizza Hardman Darren Atwater responded to a piece of spam email and ordered a ticket legitimately to attend Jim Mellon's minor trade show in islington today. The show claimed that 10,000 tickets had been booked although capacity in the rooms booked is sub 3,000. Whatever. Atwater attended this morning and saw plenty of empty space. He estimates that, including suits manning stands, there were perhaps 2,000 in the hall. Again, whatever.

Let’s Support the Refugees, For Goodness Sake!

If you are worried about the UK being swamped by refugees, then I don’t blame you. But you’re still wrong to be concerned. Yes, we are already a very populated nation. But we have some very big cities to accommodate newcomers and our beautiful countryside would not be affected.

Malcolm Stacey’s Quest for Jeremy Corbyn’s Money Tree – the Conclusion

On Thursday night Malcolm Stacey attempted to gain entry to Jeremy Corbyn’s last campaign rally but was foiled and failed to meet the bearded one. Does that mean that his search for Corbyn’s Money Tree is at an end?

Malcolm Stacey goes to Islington to find Jeremy Corbyn’s Money Tree – part 3

Malcolm Stacey arrived in Islington last night in his pursuit of Comrade Jeremy Corbyn’s famous Money Tree. He felt that he was close to his quest. But did he get to meet the great bearded one?

Malcolm Stacey’s quest to find Jeremy Corbyn and the famed Islington Money Tree – part 2

Good news. The Quest is hotting up. Getafix is worried. His potions based on cuttings from the money tree do not seem to be working. Why are shares in Advanced Oncotherapy not at 50p despite being featured here twice a week? Why is the FTSE 100 not at 8,000 as predicted? Perhaps the Money Tree he has been using in the depths of the Welsh forest is a fake or has lost its powers. Fear not…for another old fool (sorry we meant respected druid) has emerged in North London and Malcolm seems to have tracked him down.

Black Amanda Says Shares Will Crash. They Won’t, but Buy a House Just in Case.

Hello Share Sprigs. I become fed up with the number of people who tell me I should stop trading shares and invest in houses instead. A family member even told me this week ‘House prices never fall.’ But they jolly well do, don’t they?

If you think I am right wing meet Robin Woodbine Parish – El Oro Annual Results

Investment Company El Oro Ltd (ELX) was set up by the war hero Major Woodbine Parish. He used to use his results statements to berate the IC for rating his company’s shares as a sell in 1953, noting their outperformance each year in the 40 years that followed, to plug his war memoirs and to launch a phenomenally right wing rant. El Oro is now run by his son “young Robin” who takes after his old man with a storming results statement today. This man makes me look like a Guardian reading, Islington mad lefty.  I can’t say I agree with him on everything but he is unique, a true character... Read on…
