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:

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?

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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 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.
