Sensyne – Timber! 175p to 0.8p and booted off AIM in 44 months

Sleazy Labour peer, Lord Drayson, pocketed an £850,000 bonus for floating Sensyne (SENS) at 175p, despite promising the Nomad he would not be so greedy. Now, three and a half years later, it has all gone horribly Pete Tong. So, will he hand the cash back, as those who backed the IPO prepare to lose, more or less, everything? Today, Drayson has got the order of the boot, and, to survive, shareholders face dilution to high heaven, while the shares will be slung off AIM.

Sensyne shareholders punished for the greed and duplicity of sleazy CEO Labour Lord Drayson

It is not just sleazy Tory Lords that this website finds unacceptable, and I am not finished with cash for questions scumbag, the Earl of Shrewsbury yet. On the other side of the house sits Lord Drayson, a man enobled by the war criminal Blair and, by pure coincidence, a generous donor the the Labour party. Drayson founded and is CEO of Sensyne (SENS). And today there is another kick in the gonads for his shareholders.

Scumbag Labour Lord Drayson has today stated that the market fails to value his Sensyne (SENS) company and that as a result the company is enterimg a formal sales process as he tries to secure funding. So why might the market “undervalue” this company? Take your pick from these reasons.

Labour Lord Prem Sikka flags up the KPMG Silentnight scandal at Westminster

It seems that one politician appreciates the scandal of how lightly KPMG and its former partner David Costley-Wood engaged in and covered up a scam against ordinary workers at Silentnight and the taxpayer and how the man behind it Costley-Wood will not pay a cent of his £500,000 fine.  My articles on this matter were passed by a mutual friend to the Labour peer Prem Sikka who, amazingly for a politician, seems to understand how wrong this is.  Speaking on the new (Coronavirus) and Directors Disqualification (Dissolved Companies) Bill, Hansard records the good Lord as saying:


Vote Plaid Cymru on May 6

Nigel Somerville agonised at the weekend about who to vote for on May 6. In answer to his questions, various of our writers will, over the coming days, suggest who is worthy of your support. Last up is myself explaining why, here in Wales, we should vote for the cottage burning lunatics of Plaid Cymru.


Vote Labour on May 6

Nigel Somerville agonised at the weekend about who to vote for on May 6. In answer to his questions, various of our writers will, over the coming days, suggest who is worthy of your support. Next up is veteran socialist Brian Basham, explaining why we should vote for the People’s Party, Labour.


Local Elections: Who Should I Vote For?

We have local elections coming up and as a loyal citizen I value my vote. The problem is that given the state of national politics I just have no idea what to do: I’m against pretty much all of them!


ShareProphets Election coverage: Vote Conservative says Councillor Chris Bailey

Over the next week or so we will run articles by supporters of the three main parties in Britain urging you to vote for their party. If you are some SNP supporting sheep molester or cottage burning Taffy and want to bleat about not having your say, tough. This is about parties that are serious across the UK ....and also the Lib Dems. Our first contributor was lifelong Labour supporter Brian Basham, now writer here and recently elected Conservative Councillor Chris 'three brains' Bailey writes:


Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: is it okay to lie these days? Pocahontas, Iconic & UK Oil & Gas

I start with another moral question from the General Election - as I have already noted HERE - Labour thinks that our record number of abortions ( 206,000 last year) is not high enough, we must murder more babies. I then turn to the issue of lying asking if society now thinks it is just acceptable.  That brings me neatly onto Iconic (ICON) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) both of which I discuss in detail.

Don't Let Pre-Election Jitters Rattle you into Unwise Buy, Sell or Hold Decisions

Hello, Share Speakers. With the election only 20 days away, it’s wise to review our trading options. The election run-up can be just as important as the final result in Shareland. We are called to take scary buy, sell or hold chances because the outcome - particularly so this time - is so unpredictable. Yet there are some previous facts to help us.


Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Lucky Lord Lucan don't bludgeon the Angus share price to death, it's time to 'fess up

In today's podcast I look at two utterly absurd proposals from Labour on broadband and on Inheritance Tax. Insanity. I also warn No Gold that he better get his £50 ready for me on December 13. Then I look at Angus Energy (ANGS), Optibiotix (OPTI), Neil Woodford disasters Kier (KIE), Eddie Stobart Logistics (ESL) and Non-Standard Finance (NSF). Then at Veltyco (VLTY) which is clearly insolvent. 95p to 1.5p in two years, thank God it had a female CEO to demonstrate the benefits of boardroom diversity for some of that period. Incidentally that CEO Ms. Blau earned 220,000 Euro for just seven months work so did a great job of closing the #GenderPayGap.  Rejoice! Rejoice!

Labour says it will close the #genderpaygap by 2030 - utter bollocks, my Bath Spa lecture

Labour has today said that it will, if elected, close the Gender Pay Gap by 2030. No doubt the liberal media, notably the BBC, will lap this up. But the hard data shows exactly why on this matter, as on so many other matters, Jeremy Corbyn is talking unmitigated bollocks. Two years ago I gave a lecture to sociology students at Bath Spa which gave the hard data which shows the lie at the heart of what Labour says. Naturally, offering facts rather than woke nonsense landed me in an Orwellian soup which I will give full details on one day. The lecture was recorded and with its slides is below.


With Shares All Over the Shop Here's How You Might Play It Now.

Hello, Share Guzzlers. Why have shares fallen so much? And which shares are best to avoid until the turmoil dies down? You notice I did not say which shares we should sell because I really do think that whichever choices are taken over Brexit, the vast majority of shares will rise anyway.


The Labour left shows on twitter why they hate and fail to understand capitalism

The tweet below relates to Carillion (CLLN) and comes from a leading group of supporters of Jeremy Corbyn and Labour. And it shows why the British left today not only fails to understand capitalism but also despises it.


Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - if you lost money on Friday sue ABC for its fake news

I start with a look at whether some current assets are really current assets, taking my inspiration from my earlier analysis of Jim Mellon's flagship dog Regent Pacific. I explain why getting this right is so important in endeavouring proper company analysis. Then it is onto Friday's market sell off caused by what even ABC now admits was 100% fake news about Donald Trump. I look at the tax plans of POTUS which are inspirational and compare them with the rhetoric coming out of Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party. I increasingly think Corbyn will win the next election and explain why that would be such a disaster. Tomorrow there may be no bearcast as I am travelling but I plan to do a double video share tip for paying subscribers only

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Margaret Hodge MP caught with her trousers down: Offshore dealings, deramping & stock promotion

I start with the latest offshore revelations from the Paradise Papers. Tune into BBC 1 tonight at 9 for more fun. I delight in Margaret Hodge the Labour MP being exposed as an A grade hypocrite on this matter and then point out how it is impossible to stop folks going offshore - the answer is not to deter them with punitive UK tax. I look at Concepta (CPT) - which we own - after today's statement, Purplebricks (PURP)  and shamed FinnCap's latest tech disaster Intercede (IGP) where its certainly placing ahoy. Then I cover the issues of ramping, de-ramping and stock promotion.

BREAKING: Jeremy Corbyn will have a field day as Persimmon bosses get to trouser £650m thanks to the taxpayer

Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party are going to have a field day with a £650 million fat cat scandal which will explode within months at £7 billion FTSE 100 housebuilder Persimmon (PSN). Even as an ardent capitalist I am nauseated by this example of obscene fat cattery which shames capitalism,


Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: Uber loses London licence, a dark day for the Capital in a time of economic insanity

Uber has lost its London license thanks to Transport For London (TFL), a move applauded by useless Mayor Sadiq Khan, The Guardian, the BBC and black cab drivers. But it is very bad news indeed for London and I explain why. It is symptomatic of a new era of economic madness as is Theresa May claiming giving £20 billion (it will be more) to the EU is a good deal and our useless PM also trying to satisfy the greed of lazy and overpaid public sector workers. Perhaps the biggest sign of this madness and wish for economic hari-kiri is Labour's plan to renationalise the utilities. It is utter madness but no one dares say so. We are heading faster and faster towards the precipice my friends.

Our Hero Wetherspoon's Martin: Re Brexit the CBI should put a sock in it, the FCA is weak and unrealistic

Tim Martin is again our4 hero of the day, speaking out against the FCA,m the CBI, the Financial Times and other remoaners" who are trtying to dilute Brexit with disingeneous comment. On the occassion of a trading statement from his JD Wetherspoon (JDW) chain of ghastly plastic pubs, Martin has let rip. The great man states:


Luke Johnson speaks up for we terrified entrepreneurs

Luke Johnson will be among the star speakers at UK Investor Show 2018. Those with a golden ticket will also get to hear him in conversation with Nigel Wray at the Saracens evening the Wednesday beforehand - that will be a battle of the pizza men, a real treat - more details HERE. In his Sunday Times column last weekend he echoed my post-election gloom about how we entrepreneurs should feel terrified - HERE. It is brilliant stuff. Frankly Luke is THE reason to buy the Sunday Times. Luke opines:


Vote Conservative Today - the alternative would be a national disaster!

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?


Why I am voting Conservative at the General Election and you should too

Shareprophets reader Jonathan Price has already put the case for voting Lib Dem. Crackpot lefty Darren Atwater has put the case for voting for the terrorist's friends in Labour. Now it is over to Andrew Bell, the son of a Tory MP, who puts the case for voting for the Conservatives. Over to Mr Bell:


Notes from Underground: Help stamp out disco in our lifetime

The first non-Tom article is #1, The explicit signs that a stockmarket crash is on its way... soon, by David Scott. This bodes well - the snakes and frigana may actually be drawing Tom's attention away from the market and back to his sabbatical.TW note you missed out this article which was actually the most read, modesty prevents me from saying who penned it. More Labour vote rigging!


It's a Scary Week Coming - But I'm Holding My Nerve

Hello Share Mashers. It’s going to be a scary end to the week. What if Labour gets in? The Big City won’t like that and shares will dive heavily. But that will be a short-lived shocker, in my view. Because Jezzer in power will cause the pound to fall even lower. And that more than anything is keeping the Footsie at record highs.


Why I am voting Labour on June 8

To say that ShareProphets readers are right wing is to say that WG Grace is the greatest sportsman of all time. Yet, in a blatent scheme to rig the election in favour of the Tories, Tom has arranged for various patsies to argue in favour of the lesser parties. Yesterday Jonathan Price batted for team Lib Dem.  Although Tom expects today's offering to be a token paen to Labour. I say, prepare to be shocked: you're going to be voting Labour. 


The graph that makes the case for Not Voting at all - the three main parties are ALL deficit denying liars

The graph below is terrifying and makes a strong case for not voting at all in the General Election. It tracks the tax burden - the amounts the State takes from its citizens as a percentage of GDP. This is horrifying.

This House Ain't Made of Straw, Like so Many Companies, but Bricks

Hello Share Trudgers. There’s been talk of a collapse in property prices on this august website. As I’ve often posited, I consider this too dire a view of the bricks and mortar game.


Energy Caps Will Only Make Things Worse for Centrica

Hello Share Squishers. It seems fairly obvious that gas and electricity supply companies may well see slimmer share prices after all this general election talk about capping energy bills. But so far, the market has not cropped shares by very much.


Leavers are either nuts or hiding what they're really on about. There, I said it

Old-time Labour voters have been moving to the Tories by the thousands over Brexit. What is it that they are truly concerned about?


Local Elections - UKIP toast, Lib & Labour disaster - Tories slam dunk certs for June 8

You can always dismiss local elections as local contests which tell you nothing about the result of the next General Election. But when that next General Election is just five weeks away and when there are clear trends evident across the board you can make clear assumptions. Let's start with UKIP whose spokesperson Lisa Duffy said the results were "disappointing" but she would "not call it a disaster". As I write the fruitcakes have lost 98 of the 99 seats they were defending and not gained one. If that is not a disaster what is? UKIP is finished. And its votes have clearly gone Conservative.

African Potash - 2 days to find $1.1 million: an open letter to Lord Peter Hain

In two days time African Potash (AFPO) must repay its finance director's wife $1.1 million as it is obliged to clear the most expensive loan in AIM history. It has no cash so prepare for mega dilution as the loan will be repaid in shares at 0.29p per share, or lower. Against that background I have, this weekend, shown that on both January 6 2016 and December 1 2015 it lied to investors ahead of its last bailout placing, it engaged in fraud. The man charged with holding CEO lyin' Chris Cleverley to account on this is perma-tango tanned Labour Lord, Peter Hain. I have written to his Lordship today.


Labour’s lurch to the left – a good day for democracy!

What a week for British politics! The party of socialism has elected a socialist leader: whatever next? The loons may be in charge of Her Majesty’s Opposition, but actually this is a great week for the country as a whole. Suddenly there is a choice.

Money Tree worshipping mad leftie Malcolm Stacey talking rot again

I wonder if it was his years at the BBC which saw my pal Comrade Malcolm Stacey infected with the mad lefty virus. Becuase the old Money Tree worshipper does talk some awful rot and today's column from him HERE is a classic. I feel forced to point out in the interests of balance why he is spouting total gibberish.

Why I am not voting at all in the General Election

Recently we have been bombarded with adverts on TV and radio reminding us to make sure that we are all registered to vote in the forthcoming general election. But I find myself increasingly questioning just how much difference it really makes. 

Bulletin Board Winner of the Week #18 announced – it is a tie

Until the General Election is finally over, we are allowing both idiot comments by MPs or political figures as well as by Bulletin Board Morons to be entered in this contest. And as such we have a tie for the most moronic posting of the week.


Why I have already voted Conservative

We continue our series on why various ShareProphets writers are voting for a range of parties on May 7th. I asked for a postal vote and so I have already voted and I voted Tory. Since I view the entire political class with contempt the main reason for voting Tory was to annoy my Labour voting wife. But there are actually three more serious reasons why everyone should vote Tory in the General Election.


Why I shall vote Liberal Democrat in the General Election

We have asked a number of ShareProphets columnists to justify how they are voting next week. We start our series with guest columnist Jonathan Price who explains why he is voting Lib Dem.

Most ShareProphets Readers Expect Dave Cameron to be next PM but 2% of you are delusional Lib Dems – Reader Poll Results

We asked, at the weekend, who you, our readers, expected to form the next Government. The bad news is that a fifth of you think the nightmare scenario of a Lab/Lib coalition is on the cards. Time to emigrate methinks. Most readers thank that one way or another Call Me Dave Cameron will get to stay in No 10 and 2% of our readers are officially delusional thinking that the Lib Dems will form a majority Government. The full results are:


Reader Poll – Who will be the next UK Government as UKIP looks set to get its first elected MP

On Thursday the good folks of Clacton in the green and pleasant county of Essex vote in a by-election caused by sitting MP Douglas Carswell resigning his seat. Oddly for a Tory MP this was not triggered by a sex scandal but because Mr Carswell has joined UKIP and will stand for UKIP in that contest and will win by a landslide. In light of that who do you think will form the next Government?


A Labour Government Would be Terrible for British Shares

Please note that this article is not meant to be an attack on any individual Labour supporter, but I believe the consequences of a Labour government for British shares would be terrible. Ed Miliband delighted the United Kingdom with his 65 minute speech yesterday. The word ‘together’ was used 51 times. I guess it sounds better than socialism.


I shall vote UKIP on 22 May in the Euro Elections because…

The European project is a grand political scheme, doomed from its inception. It is foretold in scripture. Genesis 11 4-9. According to the story, a united humanity speaking a single language decided to build a tower into the sky to overthrow God. In response, God confounded their languages and scattered them all over the earth. 


I’m Voting Tory on May 22nd in the Euro Elections because

Actually I may not be voting Tory. There is mounting evidence that I shall be deprived of the vote completely thanks to Labour Dirty tricks – that is my wife (who explains the Labour case here) neglecting to put me on the electoral roll. If I do vote, choosing a party is like deciding which sort of shit you want smeared in your face for the next five years. But forced to choose there is only one sane choice and that is to vote Tory.


I’m Ripping up my voting slip on May 22nd in the Euro Elections because…

I have, to the lasting shame of my dear departed Labour supporting Pater, steadfastly refused to vote. (Something I'm quite proud of). I've never voted & have no intention whatsoever of ever voting.  I think it was while reading Aldous Huxley (Brave New World) or The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists that the penny finally dropped. We're being cultivated and harvested by State apparatus. Divide & Rule. The lumpenproletariat are used as a commodity, labour, to be traded by the Alphas.
