This photo inspired many, many fine entries to this caption contest. But there can be only one winner. And I think the winning entry pretty much summed up May's attitude to this election.

There is a case for not bothering to vote at all. All four main parties (we include the SNP and, very charitably, the Lib Dems) are committed to running unfunded budget deficits up to at least 2025. None of them are prepared to make the tough choices a nation with an ageing population and a gaping budget deficit needs to make. In that sense all of the politicians are being dishonest with the electorate. So what's new?

Bloody Theresa May. There was I off work and she has just gone and called a snap General Election for June 8th. Time for everyone to panic? Er...no.

In today's podcast I look at Peak Club - the mad debt binge at Soho House and what it tells us about asset bubbles and more. Then I cover Theresa May's misguided proposals on executive pay before finally covering the latest boardroom antics at Bowleven (BLVN) , putting it up for sale.

I expect shares in Cloudtag (CTAG) to resume trading on Monday and then to tank. I explain why. I look at the issue of portfolio allocation something too many folks ignore at their peril. Then I look at executive pay at RBS, Unilever *(ULVR) and elsewhere. I wonder if Theresa May means it about looking after ordinary working people. Surely RBS is an easy test for her. As a capitalist I find blue chip executive greed distasteful and worrying.

Well, this is awkward.. Prime Minister Theresa May will be visiting newly minted US President Donald Trump next week and hopes to initiate some sort of trade deal, a mere 48 hours after Trump told the world of his plans: “From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first. America first.” But I am sure that he'll make an exception for us. TW Note - Does Darren actually bother to check what Trump says on Trade deals? More fake news from remoaning liberal losers...

In a mere five days, Donald Trump becomes president of the United States. In 90 days or so, Theresa May promises to pull the plug on the world's largest trade bloc.

It is great to see that one of the UK's largest companies, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has a new CEO who has a cracking CV and and has without doubt been appointed on merit. Oh... and she wears a skirt, that is to say that she is a woman, Emma Walmsley. I wish her well. Emma demonstrates a couple of things which will horrify the liberal left.

Happy birthday Lucian, it looks as if my son is hanging on to avoid joint parties in the future. Theresa May has a new idea on tackling fraud. Suffice to say what she proposes will damage industry and Britain PLC. I have another suggestion - enforce existing rules. Mrs May fails to understand the psyche of most fraudsters but also how useless the fraud busting agencies of the state are. I then move onto bad news for my good friend Jim Mellon at his latest AIM Disaster, Billing Services (BILL), then I cover XCite Energy (XEL) and read throughs at IGAS and Iofina (IOF). 88 Energy (88E), China fraud Zibao (ZBO) and the smelly business at Feedback (FDBK)

Shares in overindebted AIM-listed Igas Energy (IGAS) have shot out of the traps this morning on news that Theresa May is in favour of fracking and wants to bribe the locals into letting it happen. There is also a technical matter announced last week that Igas underwent a capital reduction which apparently strengthens the balance sheet......if only. The share price reaction has seen the shares race ahead by as much at 47% (30% last seen) but has anything changed? Er....

Negative interest rates? Mortgages for the unemployed? Theresa May and Hillary Clinton reckoning they can solve the economic mess with "new Government policies". It is a mad, mad world. And sooner or later we will face a day of reckoning for the economy, for shares and for property prices that will be brutal in a way you cannot imagine as I explain in today's podcast

Tomorrow my father faces his interview at the Conservative Club and I have been coaching him on what he can say as a deluded lefty to get access to the cheep beer. Elsewhere I discuss how share prices can defy gravity temporarily and why with reference to Gable Holdings (GAH) and Gulf Keystone (GKP). Then I move onto Nyota (NYO), Avanti Communications (AVN), Strat Aero (AERO) and then, in some detail, the dog run by liars that is African Potash (AFPO)

In this podcast I discuss the !Industrial policy" of Theresa May, the LSE being taken over by the Krauts - a good thing - why I am still an equities bear and a few other things. Must rush. I have a takeaway from Shipston Bengal to collect for my father and me.

On Tuesday we asked you who would be the next Tory leader and 60% of you went for folks who are not even on the ballot today including the man who has screwed half the women in London (Boris), the man who has screwed up English Football (Roy Hodgson) and the man who allowed the greedy junior doctors to screw even more cash out of the NHS, Jeremy Hunt. So let's try again. Who will be the next leader of the Tory party? The deadline for voting is midnight on Sunday.
