A chap for whom I have some time some of the time asked me why bother sticking it to Arian Silver (AGQ), a worthless piece of crap on AIM. Will it make any difference to the charade, to the game which sees userless tossers like Arian's CEO Jim Williams get ever richer, crony capitalists earn fat fees and investors get buggered again and again and again. No. My writings won't change that. And the chap is right in that it will just make a few more pathetic wretches who would rather lose money than accept the truth hate me. Yup. He is right.

Our in-house Bulletin Board Moron Wildes has his knickers in a twist claiming that our multiple scoops on the placing at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) are in some way insider dealing and that the share price crash is down to us.

In August 2015 AIM Casino listed fraud Eden Research (EDEN) announced that it had sold a license to its long time associated company Terpenetech for £600,000. On the same day it announced that it had bought a 29% stake in (worthless) Terpenetech for £920,000 in shares. I quizzed Eden's PR man Paul "Queenie" McManus of Walbrook PR about this deal which was clearly a panama pump fraud. And Queenie lied to me.

Was it PR wankers Walbrook or Nomad WH Ireland or savants on the LSE Asylum? Er no, it was me HERE. I then look at Challenger (CHAL) a zero in waiting, Iofina (IOF) and IGAS (IGAS) both of which should also be zeros. I commend today's excellent piece from Nigel, the Deputy Sheriff of AIM, on the Servision (SEV) scandal HERE. I take Nomad Allenby to task for failing to comment on this and for allowing Servision to mislead mug punters. AGAIN. Finally I take apart overvalued ramp Wey Education (WEY). Its shares are up 33% today. That is a ramp not a reflection of value.

I start with a hint to the oppo, that is InternetQ (INTQ), fire the lazy upper class fuckwits at FTI Consulting who you employ to do PR, they are useless as I explain in this podcast. It is then onto Condor Gold (CNR), Optibiotix (OPTI), Wildes and his trading strategy in LGO Energy (LGO) and elsewhere - the road to ruin. And finally where is Malcolm Stacey's Santa rally? It seems to be er..late.

Yesterday I asked you to identify the odd one out in the four pictures below: The England Rugby team, David Lenigas, Market-makers Winterfloods and the City Nomads, brokers and PRs celebrating at their annual Christmas party and YOU ALL GOT IT WRONG but there were some good answers anyway HERE.

Despite Jabba The Hutt tweeting like mad about how cheap shares in LGO Energy (LGO) are, they have crashed again today and are now just 0.15p to sell. Ouch. Only 0.15p to go. In honour of this we have a new odd one out contest. Simply say which of the four pictures below is the odd one out and why.

Malcolm First: Hello Share Squirmers. There could be pressure on people like me who write about shares. We could be approached by PR people who want us to write about their clients. Which means that they expect us to give positive reports to companies which issue shares.

And so today all the Horse shite stocks have served up news that appeared to have leaked onto every Bulletin Board and twitter ramping session days ago. Flow testing at the "Gatwick gusher" will start early next year. Since every BB Moron already knew this and since half the Horse Hill runners and riders have to do a placing to survive fairly soon, shares in this stable of dogs have not soared as promoters such as David "Jabba The Hutt" Lenigas wuld have hoped.
And so what is the news? The companies involved have been:

Just when I think that the deadwood press can sink no lower in terms of churning out PR bilge along comes along Harriet Green of CityAM. She has just blown off Jonny Hon of Gate Ventures (GATE) infamy with a slavish profile making him out to be Asia’s equivalent of Pope John Paul 2nd. Does this bimbo want a job in PR or is she just too dim and/or lazy to do some basic research. Lucian Miers has sent her an email.

On Thursday at no-one-is-watching o’clock (5.54pm) AIM-listed Rightster (RSTR) issued a very odd RNS detailing peculiar dealings in the company’s shares by its CEO, Mr Patrick Walker. From the text of the RNS it would appear that his director shareholding is – as I understand it – under the control of a third party. Who might that be, and why? Then there is the reporting of a transaction dating back to 7 August – is that delay a breach of AIM Rules?

ADVFN (AFN) PLC spends £35,000 a year employing a genius called Stefania to do its PR. This genius also works for market abuser Chris Oil, the POS Golden Saint Resources (when’s the next bailout placing luv?) and one of Big Dave Lenigas’ many enterprises. What a portfolio of doom. But what is most amazing is that this genius retweets tweet after tweet attacking ShareProphets (20% owned by ADVFN) and me (a business partner on UK Investor show and an ADVFN columnist).

I have had a few battles with Foxy Bex and her colleagues at Redleaf Polhill over the past two years because of its willingness to represent absolute liars and criminals such as the Cupid gang and Rob Terry of Quindell. Redleaf (and indeed Foxy herself) has now taken on another client which they know full well is run by a liar and a charlatan and which is an investment disaster waiting to happen.

I then move into Quindell, Robinson, Cambria Africa, Frontier Mining, what timber prices tell us about general earnings visibility, Gowin New, a new China POS that had been flagged up to me called JQW (target price 0p), the Wandisco pump and dump and Jiasen International.

Redleaf Polhill, the PR firm for the fraud Quindell (QPP) is holding its "tech showcase 2014" next Thursday in the City with five of what it terms "the most interesting plays" presenting. And yes, you have guessed it! One of those interesting plays is Quenron. I am almost tempted to delay my Greek trip by 48 hours to go along for the free booze, canapes, coke, hookers and the chance to hear Rob Terry present and field some questions.

From the team that brought you Naibu (NBU) we also have China Chaintek (CTEK) which released its interims today and it goes without saying that they do not stack up either. My target price for the shares is 1p (the value of the cash dividend on offer) but since it will probably be the last when the stock goes ex my target price will be slashed to 0p.

Yesterday evening I was doing a bit of frigana chopping at the Greek Hovel and I heard a rustling in the bush I was approaching. I know enough by now to realise what was making the noise and beat a hasty retreat. But the stench of corruption on AIM tells me where the real snakes operate. It is a cesspit for crooks and crony capitalists who systematically transfer wealth from the many (mug investors) to the few (themselves). I have had enough of this for one day and am heading back to the fields to face real snakes. They are less loathsome. There is a solution but the London Stock Exchange does nothing. It is guilty of abetting financial crime by its inaction.

The Times Newspaper yesterday published an article on Quindell (QPP) and myself which is so palpably inaccurate but also sufficiently sinister that I reproduce it in full. If the Times pulls its lies in full and publishes a full retraction, clarification and apology I will withdraw the copyright breach. I sense that Quindell’s PR flunkies at Redleaf Polhill may be behind this article as part of their job of smearing me.

How many times have I warned you that Arian Silver (AGQ) is one of the biggest dogs on AIM? Its uber-Welsh management team are champion value destroyers.

The attacks on me from shareholders in Quindell (QPP) continue. Yesterday say them produce & circulate a defamatory video alleging inter alia that I had an undeclared short position, that my restaurant was unprofitable, that I was very ugly, that all women hated me and that the Quindell Share price was zooming ahead. How very profound. Ugly is a matter of opinion, all the other points are demonstrably untrue.

On Monday, I had a discussion with Mosman Oil & Gas’ (MSMN) technical director Andy Carroll. I wanted to find out more about Mosman and the gaps I reported last week in its reporting of two oil “discoveries” in its Cross Roads-1 exploration well. To be honest, I don’t think Mr Carroll expected the conversation we had. Like most executives on AIM, he is probably more used to the anodyne questioning of some other websites we could mention - “so then Mr Carroll on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best, how would you rate your project? 9, 10 or 11?”

This October the Crony Capitalists who make money from AIM will gather to celebrate another year of making money as Nomads, brokers, PR advisers, lawyers and overpaid directors at a lavish awards dinner.
