I think Deborah White of Milestone Group (MSG) should be fired and then made to to a perp walk for her blatant breach of AIM rules with regard to non disclosure of price sensitive information. But there is another reason to hand Debs a p45 today...her stunning record of non delivery. It is worth chronicling just how bad it is.

A brief line in an announcement by Crown Ocean has caught my eye in the latest twist in the battle to remove the useless board of AIM-listed Bowleven (BLVN). The board’s supposedly flagship farm-out transaction, with which CEO Kevin Hart expressed pleasure, seems to me have placed a maximum valuation of around $25 million on the company’s $100 million spent on Bomono. But I wonder whether major institution Artemis has sold out of the 14 million shares the market was told it held on Monday. If so, where is the TR-1, and did Artemis vote the shares against the board ahead of selling them to Crown Ocean?

And so finally, this morning, AIM-listed Bowleven (BLVN) has named the day for the requisitioned sack-the-board EGM. The company first announced receipt of the EGM requisition from Crown Ocean on 24 Jan and three weeks on it has finally got around to calling it – for 14 March. Hurried this is not. The ShareProphets RNS Translation Service explains all…..(original in bold)

AIM-listed Bowleven (BLVN), in the sights of activist investor Crown Ocean which has already requisitioned a sack-the-board EGM, has released a “provisional response” to the proposals. It looks pretty desperate from a board too used to sitting on its hands and overpaying itself and which looks slam-dunk for the tickety-tack when it finally gets around to calling the requisitioned EGM.

In these times of austerity we are all in it together but sometimes one needs to consider a bit of budgetary restraint one must always look at ones overhead. In that vein, while Graham Neary said "sell" Fastjet (FJET) yesterday many of us feel that he was still too charitable. And then there was his article on Cloudtag (CTAG) where he failed to conclude that it was a worthless fraud. Is Graham just too nice to work at ShareProphets. I have a P45 with his name on it but should I use it? It is up to you to decide, the deadline for voting is midnight today (Wednesday 21st).

Oh dear, all those posh kids who were too thick to do anything else and ended up working at upmarket London Estate Agents Foxtons are going to get fired. It is almost P45 time for the young toffs as a dreadful profits warning is out today which, utterly unfairly, blames Brexit. Bloody Boris Johnson. He's not only screwed half the woman in London now he's fucked Foxton's too. The rotter.

I am still a tad under the weather but still I am jolly productive on the article front. In today's podcast I cover a valid point made by a UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) owning moron, look at Andalas (ADL) and 88 Energy (88E) - you were warned folks. Likewise Northern Petroleum (NOP) where I have no sympathy for CEO Keith Bush. He deserves a black bag and a P45 pronto. Frankly after his 2014 bonus piano wire is called for.

Pensioner mugging stockbroker WH Ireland (WHI) has not announced this via RNS yet but just to remind it to come clean, my source close to the action says that the back office unit of its stockbroking operation is to be closed at the end of May. It is not clear if the almost 30 staff - many of whom have worked there for more than two decades - have been given the bad news yet. Well I guess they have now.

Folks like greedy & disgraced Richard Chase of Nyota think that the deadwood press is still king and that online publications do not count. He has clearly been too busy lubing up for his next job at King's Cross to notice that the Independent has shut its print edition and that this weekend both the Guardian and News International have announced that 100 of their staffers will be getting P45s in yet another round of cost cutting.

Warning: The podcast contains both bad language and also a lot of abuse directed at Australians.I start with the guys who run Slater & Gordon and accept that they can't be thrown to saltwater crocs who have not eaten since Christmas. shame. Its all down to geography. I then move onto the liar David Lenigas, Rare Earth Minerals (REM) and LGO Energy (LGO). Then to Bingo Bango Bongo (BGO) WTF is going on? Petroceltic (PCI) - the new Afren in every respect - and then to 4D Pharma (DDDD), Finally I dwell on the spectre of mass unemployment in certain sectors in China, the UK and the USA and what it means.

I have already explained in my Bearcast why Keith Bush, the CEO of AIM casino POS Northern Petroleum (NOP) should be taken out and strung up with piano wire for the contempt with which he has treated the owners of this company where he has been rewarded for abject failure. But today’s RNS requires further comment as it is a classic in omnishambles obfuscation.

It is a year to the day since Andrew Piggy Austin of Igas ( salary £670,000) told investors he was buying shares when in fact he was dumping a net £7 million worth in his dodgy loan deal with Equities First Holdings LLC. In the 365 days that have followed shares in Igas have crashed from 135p to 35p. So when will Piggy get his much deserved P45?
