I am rather taken with the new cleaning lady the Mrs has hired. She scrubs up well, works hard and her views on a range of issues including masks, vaccines, inflation and the role of the state are thoroughly admirable. And hearing myself and Lucian discuss how mining companies claim to be ESG friendly by hiring loads of lesbians, she thought that a good joke and remarked that my work seemed interesting. That would not be how the Mrs would react, both to the joke and the description of my work. I mention all of this only because Agnieszka has been arguing with her 12 year old son who wants her to invest her wages in bitcoin.
If you still think that the FCA is there to stop financial crime and protect consumers from crooks and scams you are, with respect, living in a different era. That should be its priority, even if it was never any good at it, as I argue on video HERE, but what it is good at is wasting vast sums on woke campaigning, even if what it does is break the law. As I have explained many times on my own site there is a pyramid of victimhood out there among woke campaigners.
As the day of the great move to the Grim North beckons I wrestle with the moral dilemna: should I grab Mrs Chav's pussy before we go? I then explain why I was NOT insensitive to lesbians in yesterday's bearcast. Finally I look at how to commit securities fraud on AIM in a way that is almost certain to escape detection or conviction. I do not advocate you do what I say but i suspect some already are. Now about about you help us to get over 20% of our Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks target tonight? I need donations of just £70 HERE
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)
