I record ahead of the arrival of the removals men. Grim North here we come! On the agenda today is Mayan Energy (MYN) where comrade Jennings of Align is getting a little ahead of himself and then the scandal of the day, Management Resource Solutions (MRS) where my work has been 100% vindicated as it admits - thanks to me - to the related party nest of snakes. But still, as shareholders try to out two leading snakes, the company and its pathetic Nomad Arden are behaving disgracefully. This insolvent piece of crap stinks and I explain why. Now as I crack on with assisting the removal men how about you join the roll call of heros HERE

Yes we have exchanged at both ends and will move next Monday to the Grim North. And the good news is that the cost of that move is on you, the grateful taxpayer. I explain all before looking at Debenhams (DEB), Sosandar (SOS), Concepta (CPT) and 7Digital (7DIG). PS Why not join the roll call of heros today HERE.

In today's extra long podcast I reflect that one day folks like Julie Meyer will win and I shall call it a day. I have lasted two years longer than John Hempton predicted. I also look back on a curious fraud from my early days back in, I think, 1995. I look at Tomco (TOM), Range Resources (RRL), RedT (RED), Columbus Energy (CERP) and VSA valuations, Goldstone Resources (GRL), Verseon (VERS) and Domino's Pizza (DOM).

In today's podcast I have some bad news for Bath Spa as the Mrs prepares to head to the Grim North relating to what happened after I gave this talk. I also have bad news for First Derivatives (FDP) as it prepares for a "Capital markets Day" session of mutual masturbation with the dumb sell side analysts and even dimmer fund managers who have stuffed other folks cash into this stock. I cover Totally (TLY), Wishbone (WSBN), Ariana (AAU), Quadrise Fuels (QFI) and Richoux (RIC)

As referenced yesterday, the Mrs has whisked me away for a romantic weekend to celebrate my birthday next Friday. For the first time since the birth of Joshua 16 months ago the vermin , as he is known, is elsewhere - with his doting grandparents. I have enjoyed an oatcake which is s sort of pancake up here in the post industrial wastelands and as well as the foreign food am trying to understand what the folks are saying up here in a rural part of the welfare safari. Anyhow a bracing walk this afternoon leaves room in the tummy for a glass or two of red. I'm back on duty tomorrow.

I have no idea why Malcolm Palle of Mining Maven organises the events he does. He charges companies far less for his seminars than other folks so, after hiring a pleasant venue and providing booze and food for all as well as paying his own train fare down from the grim North he won't be making much. But all credit to him for putting on fun evenings. I commend him for his Saintly community spirit and reckon that more folks should pop along as I did last night.

Good news from late last week, the shameless charlatan Darren Winters who has made a fortune peddling bogus and worthless stockmarket training courses for tens of thousands of pounds, and I shall be squaring up in Court in the Grim Northern Welfare Safaris on November 7. Bring it on, I want to see the bitchez in Court.

I prepare for a celebration lunch with lefties in the grim North. Woe is me. But my mind wanders to what else was happening in 1966? I am really not on the ball today. Then I ask how can we say that investors are protected if fraudster Rob Terry can raise cash for his Knob Park ponzi via crowdfunding? Then I answer the question in today's Daily Mail (a loathsome rag) - in a low interest rate era should you pay off your mortgage?

A reader says that ahead of bearcast he now gets an advert for bars in Sunderland. Poor fellow. Perhaps he should move from the welfare safaris of the grim North to the hard working South of England? I discuss this and then move onto Nyota Minerals (NYO), Aureus Mining (AUE), Driver Group (DRV), Harvest Minerals (HMI) and - in detail - the piece of excrement that is African Potash (AFPO).

Still on the road to Yockenthwaite in search of Jeremy Corbyn. Not exactly, but I do continue to tread the Grim North. Being out of touch of the Capital's Square Mile has its compensations. There's no news of more AIM scandals to heat the blood, no agonising decisions over whether to sell a poor performer or to dump stock in a company hoping for takeover by a dithering predator

The countdown to Corrie live is underway.

As you know I have gained a real understanding of how folks live in the grim Northern Welfare safari by becoming an avid viewer of Coronation Street. As such I note comments from the world’s number one mining analyst Roger Bade of Whitman Howard today and begin to think that the man’s judgement may be seriously suspect. Bade notes on the comedy that is Minera (MIRL):

Take two on this podcast as I was rudely interrupted first tme around by someone from the Grim Northern post industrial welfare safaris making his day's calls before sitting down to watch the Jeremy Kyle show. On today's show I look at Eden Research (EDEN), Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN), Daniel Stewart (DAN), Globo (GBO), Sareum (SAR), Tern (TERN), Hydrogen (HYDG) and Golden Saint Resources (GSR). Trivia question of the day: which THREE of those companies have NOT sent me a lawyers letter or reported me to the rozzers?

This morning my money tree worshipping comrade, the druid Getafix, aka Comrade Malcolm Stacey has written comments (HERE) about Tesco which are so completely insane that I have to respond.

Oh dear, Oh dear. It seems as if the ASOS (ASC) warehouse, somewhere in the Grim North went up in smoke on Friday evening. The UK website has stopped taking orders but says that it will resume operations within the next day or so. Ok so what about the share price then?
