If you had followed the last two share ramps from Big David Lenigas you would be feeling pretty sore. In less than two months you would have spunked two thirds of your cash on Angus Energy (ANGS) and a third on Greatland Gold (GGP). Well done Dave. Today he is pumping UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) as you can see below but has he gone a step too far?

Below I bring you three tweets from the great promoter himself, Mr David Lenigas urging folks to buy Angus Anergy (ANGS) shares at up to 14p as recently as six weeks ago. Uh Oh those in his flock of followers who bought into this ramp must be feeling a tad sick today with the shares at just 5.5p after a statement that raises big questions about Paul Vonk, ousted as CEO last week and the matter of material non disclosure.

In this podcast I thinkI agree with Dan's tip. I then look at Independent Oil & Gas in light of Jim Armitage's article in the Evening Standard which takes this scandal forward some more.

I start by explaining that torture and it involves sociology lecturers. I then move onto explaining why Roland "fatty" Cornish is the utterly unacceptable face of crony capitalism. Then moving from the undeserving rich to the needy, I ask you to give a few quid to Woodlarks HERE. I then look at Frontera (FRR) where the silence is deafening, Amur (AMC), Audioboom (BUST), Angus Energy (ANGS), UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), F*ck Yu (YU.) and finally at Gulf Marine (GMS) which is about to discover that just because it is Christmas that won't stop the banksters being total bastards. There is no season of goodwill for that profession.

Angus Energy (ANGS) shares may or may not be cheap on fundamentals. That debate is for another day. But weighing down on this company is one almighty issue of corporate governance: the lies its founder Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorius told about his dealings with loan provider America 2030 in June 2018 and the cover-up that continues to this day.

Of course David Lenigas is not on the board of Angus Energy (ANGS) and thus had no idea at all that a heavily discounted placing at 9p would be announced today. And thus his aggressive pumping of the stock on twitter last week, as you can see below, is just another remarkable coincidence. Just like this one ahead of the last UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) bailout placing. Big Dave.., an AIM casino leopard who never changes his spots.

I have been greatly distracted today. In part by some ludicrous piffle from Brokerman Dan, I explain why he is deluded. More importantly there is the growing sex and physical abuse scandal at my old school Warwick as I explained earlier today HERE. Today I have spoken to a second sexual abuse victim and been contacted by the new Head Master. Maybe something will happen. On the markets I look at First Derivatives (FDP), Angus Energy (ANGS), Purplebrocks (PURP) Totally (TLY) where Stevie Wonder could see that it is placing ahoy and Goldplat (GDP)

In today's bearcast I help my pal Mr Lenigas out and answer his question as to why shares in Angus (ANGS) are not rising after the Balcombe flow results yesterday.

It has now emerged that Brokerman Dan attacked what he thought I said about Angus Energy (ANGS) without actually listening to what I actually said despite us giving him a 24 hour pass for bearcast access. He spouts an awful lot of piffle in his latest article but declines to print corrections. Poor Dan. Oddly on one major point he is almost correct. Moving on, I also look at Cenkos (CNKS), Frontera (FRR), Rosenblatt (RBGP), i3 Energy (I3E), MySquar (FRAUD), Online Blockchain (OBC) and Kellan (KLN).

Brokerman Dan Levi has again today insisted that Angus Energy (ANGS) is doing a placing. It will clearly have to do one at some stage soon but right now Daniel is being played, as was I last week.

Most of what was in yesterday's bearcast on Angus Energy (ANGS) stands. The ramping is sordid and the company MUST come clean on Tidswell-Pretorious and his sordid share dealings. But I do not believe there is a placing at 6p. I was played and discuss that. Project Fear cheerleader Mark Carney says a no deal Brexit could cause house prices to fall by 35%. I explain why he is talking total cock (again). I look at Amur Minerals (AMC), Pan African Resources (PAF), Obtala (OBT), Online Blockchain (OBC) and ADVFN (AFN). I did not ask how ADVFN is affected by the new EU article 13 on copyright breaches? I cannot think that it will be a good thing for it.

Update. Two thirds of this podcast stands. The ramping and share dealing comments are 100% fair and very serious. But there is no placing as this podcast suggests - I was "played" as explained HERE. David Lenigas is leading the ramping of Angus Energy (ANGS) shares as you can see below. A placing is on the runway, Then there is the issue of the shares sales by America 2030 of shares ex CEO and Company founder Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorious claimed to own as we reported here. Quite simply what Angus stated in RNS statements which is what we reported is not what happened and it has failed to acknowledge that and what has happened since. Until it does new Nomad and broker Stockdale must surely stop any placing going ahead - there will be one one day. Listen and despair of the AIM Casino.

The leopard does not change its spots. Pumping UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) hard as it was trying to arrange a bailout placing is bad enough. But now we come to Angus Energy (ANGS) another Horse Hill play and one where the CEO has just "been resigned" in disgrace following revelations HERE. But Big Dave has, as you can see below, been pumping its shares hard on twitter. What happens after a Big Dave pump?

First of all thanks for all the kind comments on the Woodlarks walk. The final photos and my final thoughts are HERE. It is not too late to donate HERE and that is what David Lenigas should do now as he gets his twitter knickers in a twist over his pre-placing tweets on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG).

After recent revelations here the position of Angus Energy (ANGS) founder and chairman Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorious was untenable and today he has “been resigned” from the board with immediate effect. But Tidswell will remain as a non- Board Operations Director, responsible for progressing all the Company's oil & gas operations while some oafish NED becomes chairman, in name at least. That is what the company says…

It is hard to know whether to laugh or to cry but it seems that the CEO of Angus Energy (ANGS), Jonathan Tidswell-Pretorious seems to have lost a stack of his shareholding in his company and, inadvertently, his range of advisers (led by London’s worst Nomad Beaumont Cornish) have misled investors.

I have made the point before but do so again that not all death spirals - or alternative structured financings or whatever the MBA phrase is - are the same. Some can actually help the share price. Some really shaft shareholders royally. All are created in a way where the provider cannot lose but some are just usurious. Why, for instance, has Angus Energy (ANGS) agreed to a deal this week with Bergen which ensures that its investors will get so utterly rogered that no amount of lube can ease the pain.

Following on from today's truly shocking results from Lombard Risk (LRM) covered HERE I have more questions for the company not least on how secure is its overdraft on which it is, I suspect, already reliant and on the quite disgraceful salary compatibility review.

Meanwhile it is now less than a month to the olive harvest and Greece. I cannot wait.

There are two statements from UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) today. One is a hard financial transaction which demonstrates clearly that UK Oil & Gas shares are horrendously overvalued and the other is the most ludicrous attaempt at share ramping in the history of AIM. Defenders of Steve Sanderson, UKOG's CEO, say that he is trying to distance himself from the Aussie share ramper David Lenigas. Frankly even Dave would have struggled to sign off on today's ramping. It is cringe-making and it is noticeable that although it relates to a Horse Hill study, no other Horse Shite company has dared publish these ridiculous claims.

Shareholders in Alba Mineral Resources (ALBA) should have the odd question or two for their board, after this morning’s announcement of three purchases. For £365,000 cash, £523,371 worth of shares (based on last night’s close) and 45,909,726 warrants at 0.5p, Alba is going to up its stake in Horse Hill developments by 5%, buy an option to buy a further 5% and buy a separate option to farm into 5% of the production licence of the Brockham Oil Field. For good measure, this last option, if exercised means Alba will have to fund 10% of the Brockham well cost.
