I hold no candle for either Roger Lawson of ShareSoc or ADVFN (AFN) but Lawson has made the most serious of allegations about ADVFN's AGM of last week which surely the company needs to answer and thus I bring Lawson's words to a wider audience. While he is at it Lawson has a go at ADVFN's business model and its blockchain spoofery.

I have on more than 40 occasions called out Brian McDonnell as a liar and a crook and his disgusting fraud of a company US Oil and Gas (USOP) as an outright fraud which lies to investors. I see that the morally bankrupt London form of Alexander David has today raised another £700,000 for Brian to squander but do his shareholders know just how he squanders it. I have a tale that will shock you before I invite the cowardly lying criminal leprechaun to sue me for libel.

Old Lawson may still be pursuing a ridiculous claim against me for libel, he noted this week that he had another meeting with his lawyers, but credit where credit is due, the old fool has nailed the shambles last week at Barclays (BARC) stockbrokers perfectly. And in a posting on the ShareSoc blog he gives advice on what to do if you have been jerked around. This is an example of the good work he can do when he is not distracted by falling in love with companies such as Globo. Over to Lawson:

As yet African Potash (AFPO) has not started the process of suing me for libel for pointing out that it committed securities fraud, something it effectively conceded it had done in its fascist lawyers letter/suicide note of last week.

And African Potash knows that disclosure will sink it for good. So let's bring it on and I shall be starting with seeking details of payments made by Potash to Beryl Holdings.
