Oakley is about to be petrified as the working classes are arriving. He fears them greatly. He fears hoovers even more. But ahead of that I record quickly. Today I cover Darren's bogus religion of global warming and Ariana (AAU) - the market has this wrong - Cobham (COB) - what ia kitchen sink - my dream St Valentine's Day massacre involving three listed companies which could all go bust on February 14. Please God! I also look at PCG Entertainment (PCGE) and its news today. Hats off to my friend comrade Richard Poulden. I also chide young Steve for not giving credit where credit is due to Majestic Wine (MJW) and have a few words about Aidan Earley. I thank him publicly on one matter although a lawyers letter has been received.

You want your share tip of the year to have the potential to double or treble. You will not get that with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Equally it is incredibly unlikely that you might lose 75% of your cash on Glaxo. Elephants do not gallop eith forwards or backwards. My third tip of the year is a stock that could lose 75% and become a cash shell. But it is also one that could easily treble and I think he odds are on the treble not the collapse. I refer to Wishbone Gold (WSBN)

Just when Wishbone (WSBN) shares were getting going again after the last placing conducted by Belfort Securities to their spiv share flipping bucket shop mates, here we go again. Boy my morning has started well: not only do I have to suffer more laziness and abusive emails from my lazy, greedy bitch of a selfish bitch of an ex wife but this as well. I want to go back to bed.

My last comment on Wishbone Gold (WSBN) was not exactly positive. The company's shares had raced ahead, in part methinks, down to comments made by me saying I'd not be selling until the shares were closer to 2p than 1p. It then raised £600,000 at just 0.75p with broker Beaufort Securites trousering not just commission but warrants. I write a fairly vicious piece HERE. But we did not sell and at 1p are still holding and hoping for better. I swapped emails with chairman Richard Poulden last week.

We are almost 200% ahead on our investment in Wishbone Gold (WSBN) with the shares at 0.815p and I must admit that in recent weeks, I have, several times, thought about banking a few gains. But then came Thursday's statement from the company and I did the maths again - am I mad? This stock could still be extraordinarily cheap. Hear me out before you send for the men in flapping white coats.

Why on earth it took Wishbone Gold (WSBN), the owner of the Black Sand gold trading business, two working days with a weekend in between to release an AGM statement is beyond me. Amid the uncertainty that caused we loyal shareholders suffered as the shares slid. But better late than never we had an RNS yesterday and it was good news indeed.

Week after week I complain that readers choose the soap opera story lines on ShareProphets over the hard journalism, or, at the very least, press play on Bearcast and zone out to the bliss of Tom's outrage. But this week, at the beguinning of the summer silly season, readers have chosen a real ShareProphets investigative story, Dynamite: Highlands Natural Resources: Tell us all about Mendell Energy Technologies LLC, as their number one read of the week. I'm proud of you.

No lightning strikes today, thank God. What was he punishing me for? I start by discussing Richard Poulden's excellent letter on why folks are so angry so backed Brexit, but it is a wider issue as you can read here. Then I discuss liquidity in an investment company's portfolio, ref Teathers Financial (TEA) and finally I challenge the banks to make good their Brexit threat to fire investment banksters. I will pay for a ticket to watch but I explain why it was always a spoof. It won't happen.

Oh dear, oh dear. I have the utmost respect for Richard Poulden who had the grim task of overseeing today’s awful trading update from AIM-China play PCG Entertainment (PCGE) and like Tom Winnifrith I had hoped that his outfit might prove to be a rare winner on the Filthy Forty. My experience of him has been one of immense integrity a very sharp mind so it is with considerable sadness that I am writing this. But a bit more digging later, it looks just awful – although, I must stress, not on Mr Poulden - and there is a worrying implication on fellow Filthy Forty play MoneySwap which is already is considerable trouble. Sadly, I fear that AIM Regulation needs to do a full steward’s here.

Shares in Wishbone Gold (WSBN), which is still not doing a placing as a certain ex bank robber insists but instead is raising debt but not for PLC costs, have slipped to 0.475p prompting a couple of readers to ask if Richard Poulden said something bad at the Mining Capital Conference yesterday?

"Oh no" you say, "not that old dog again". Yes it is that old dog with a Wishbone (WSBN) but everything changed two weeks ago with a quite transformational deal. The market has not twigged just how transformational this deal is. The shares are a buy at 0.31p with a (cautious) target price to sell of 0.6p.

Prelude: I fall in love with Angela - I have just been listening to Mrs Merkel droning on about how the EU has reached agreement with Greece. This is an agreement to…er…begin negotiations on a final settlement and lend them yet more money. With tennis still in the mind it really is the moment to say “You CANNOT be serious!” But she is. They all are. These are the same people who told you in 2010 that Greek debt could not be restructured. I have lost count of how many times it has been restructured since.

TW Note: I do not agree with the thesis of this article at all but allowed it to run. I have, however, amended it to reflect the fact that there are no related Party transactions involving Richard Poulden as had been stated on Proactive and which the author referred to. This is a factual error for which I apologise on behalf of the website. The rest of the article - which I still disagree with - stands and reads: With all the China frauds and the dismal performance of China-focused shares exposed by Shareprophets, one begins to wonder if any link at all with China is a red flag. Take PCG Entertainment (PCGE), a Gibraltar incorporated holding company, for example.

In today's podcast I refer to the excellent Black Swan 2015 review by Richard Poulden which you should all read.

And the I look at the issue of what constitutes market abuse in the Bulletin Board Moron community

Richard Poulden, the barrister and entrepreneur who built potash play Sirius Minerals by acquisitions around the world into a company with a stock market value of more than £200 million, confesses to one particular enthusiasm: gold. He argues the stage is set for a major increase in the price of bullion, largely attributable to the machinations of the People’s Republic of China, and, as executive chairman and key shareholder of AIM-quoted Wishbone Gold (WSBN), he is seeking to grasp opportunities among newly producing or soon to be producing gold projects.

Our pals at Mining Maven have another free event in the City of London on 26th June. Not only do you get free booze and food but there are presentations by two good friends of mine, Kerim Sener of Ariana Resources (AAU) and Richard Poulden, the uber-libertarian CEO of Wishbone Gold (WSBN). I had a drink or seventeen with the leader of the free Libertarian resistance earlier this week and thinks look interesting at Wishbone. There is also a decent looking bird, Jan Skoyles speaking on macro themes.
