Who has been daft enough to send Tom Winnifrith a lawyer's letter? 92% of you guessed wrongly

Published 7 days ago

Five days ago someone who you would say had  a career death wish, if he had actually got a career, sent me a fascist lawyers letter demanding that I pull all articles on him (going back 40 months) pay him damages, never write about him again and publish a grovelling apology dictated by him. I asked you to guess who has been so daft and 92% of you got it wrong.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 4 March - Arguing with a Drunken Sailor as rats jump ship from AIM

Published 506 days ago

Rules are rules and whether it is soccer playing sex offenders or AIM Companies you have to stick to them. Moreover a COI is a COI even if sign off on and some may be legally kosher but are morally wrong. I refer to my rows with DS on 3Legs Resources (3LEG). I look at Monitise (MONI), rats leaving AIM, viz Edge Resources (EDG) & UMC Energy (UEP). I ask where is the fraud at African Potash (AFPO)? And then - to entertain Wildes - I look at LGO Energy (SHITE) again as well as at Iofina (IOF) - when will it fess up? I also ask a question of Audioboom (BOOM)

Petroceltic: Moron "experts" from Bulletin Boards take it up the arse as bid comes in at 3p

Published 513 days ago

Time and time again we bears warned folks that shares in Petroceltic (PCI) were essentially worthless. But the Bulletin Board Morons - as always - knew better. Tom Winnifrith is just a failed fund manager/pizza boy/alcoholic they chanted as they bid the shares to 20p+. Oh dear folks, this former oil analyst has no sympathy as today Petroceltic received a bid at just 3p per share and that is as good as it will get. The Morons - as ever - just do not know what they are talking about.

The 21 stock Death List Portfolio is now seven months old and now has its sixth kill, Daniel Stewart (DAN). We replace each kill with a new candidate for death so until today 26 entrants had seen five recorded demises. But Daniel Cesspit is the sixth (from 26) and so we need a new target for death, that is to say for seeing its shares booted off the AIM casino or going to 0p.

Published 681 days ago

It is 9/11 and I look back 14 years. I also reflect on the Orwellian way we all viewed Syria earlier this week. Looking forward, we have sold 90% of the restaurant in Clerkenwell to the pizza hardman Darren Atwater. we end up slightly ahead on the deal but I have had enough of running businesses and blame my own old age and the Tories for that. This is the start of my wind-down.
