In today's podcast I start with the shocking revelations about Neil Woodford's greed and reward for failure. Folks like Nomates are more of a threat to capitalism than Lenin. I am vindicated on Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) and await apologies from the Bulletin Board Morons. I discuss the whole affair including the shameless behaviuour of FinnCap (FCAP). Truly FinnCrap is a moral sewer. I discuss First Derivatives (FDP), offer up my nap buy for Q1 2019 and have some questions that require an urgent answer from John Gunn's Octagonal (OCT)

As Roland “Fatty” Cornish settles down to his Sunday Lunch, and considers what to do about the growing scandal at AIM-listed Andalas Energy (ADL) – a company to which he is Nomad – I have something else for him to chew on as he munches through his double helping of spotted dick with extra lashings of custard. It concerns another company to which he is Nomad, namely AIM-listed Octagonal (OCT). I gather he is well aware of what follows, but has he done anything?

I said I would take a look at the annual accounts to March 2018 of Global Investment Strategy UK Ltd (GIS) which AIM-listed Octagonal (OCT) owns. After all, Octagonal announced by RNS in April that GIS expects to report EBITDA of £3.01 million, a record for the Group, on sales of £6.53 million for the year ended 31 March 2018 and that cash in the bank or equivalents more than £5m as at 31 March 2018. Hmm – let’s see how those statements worked out.

Tom Winnifrith pointed to some previous anomalies at AIM-listed Octagonal (OCT) where John Gunn (of AIM-listed dog Inspirit Energy) and Nilesh Jagatia (of Teathers infamy) reside. Today, I had an email drop into my inbox…..it is all very odd.

Yesterday AIM-listed Octagonal (OCT) released a Director’s Dealings RNS. Nothing unusual about that, you might think, but the text was announcing that CEO John Gunn was taking a loan secured against his shares in the company. Is he doing an Equities First type of deal?

Any company employing disgraced Nilesh Jagathia of Teathers infamy is a good bet either to go tits up or to get into a spot of bother for not filing documents properly at Companies House. And that brings us to Octagonal (OCT) PLC where clueless Nilesh does the books.

Nilesh Jagatia the former FD at now delisted AIM bad boy Teathers Financial (TEA) is now enmeshed in controvery not only over Teather's serial ability to file accounts on time but over how shareholder's cash was used not only on entertainment involving semi clad young ladies but also for apparently personal spending by Nilesh. One hopes that by now the Old Bill and HMRC have been asked to have a butcher's. Amazingly Mr Jagatia remains as FD at two other AIM Companies both, as it happens, run by John Gunn: Inspirit (INSP) and Octagonal (OCT). I have now written to John Gunn.

The way that shareholders' cash was pissed away on corporate jollies & semi clad young ladies by the former board of Teathers Financial (TEA) has already been documented fully here. But documents have now fallen into my possession, here at Winnileaks, which ask even bigger questions about FD Nilesh Jagatia who is pro tem, still FD at AIM-listed Inspirit (INSP) and Octagonal (OCT). After this bombshell I wonder for how long.

Pornography, naked women, sheep shagging Taffs. Actually there is nothing of the sort in this bearcast but I mention it just to annoy Kay Larsen,a prudish and stupid PR spinner for Sepura (SEPU). Kay is a really silly cow and we have crossed swords before so I rub her nose in it with her client whose statement today is a scandal. The rozzers really need to have a butchers. Then I cover Modern Water (MWG), Falcon Oil & Gas (FOG) and a trio of uber dogs with uber fleas: Blur (BLUR), Inspirit (INSP) and related party Octagonal (OCT). Then I look at Phil Edmonds creation Sable (SBLM) which is now a month away from AIM casino death. Its sister company is the fraud African Potash (AFPO) and I cover this matter in detail. It looks as if the Mrs will give birth tomorrow so if I take a break and you miss me either listen to the archive HERE or google "tourettes audio" and find something similar. Warning: this podcast contains some very bad language especially for the prude Kay Larsen.

We know from an Inspirit Energy Holdings (INSP) announcement on 17 May 2016 that Octagonal (OCT) remains a major shareholder in Inspirit and that John Gunn is a director of both Inspirit and also Octagonal. This really is a cosy old relationship between the two AIM POS companies.

Now that Teathers (TEA) disgraced Nilesh Jagatia has finally published accounts for another AIM POS, we can have a look at how Octagonal (OCT) has valued its investments. We start by looking at City Golf Clubs Limited.

I find Octagonal (OCT) such a frustrating stock as, at the heart of it, there appears to be a decent business that can throw off cash and that potentially looks undervalued using standard valuation metrics but while the CEO and major shareholder, John Gunn, continues to use its bank balance as a personal investment piggybank, I have to leave it well alone.

I look at David Lenigas associated shite Octagonal (OCT) and its rum and coke statement, Nighthawk (HAWK), London Capital (LCG), Igas (IGAS) and make a general observation about oil prices and oil stocks.

Jabba The Hutt is no longer on the board but he ramps shares in Octagonal (OCT) on twitter and his pal from Inspirit (INSP), John Gunn, runs the show. Piss poor interims were out yesterday but being Jabba related they contained a clear breach of AIM Rules - just what was it trying to hide?

I am still on the prescription pain killers as you may be able to guess. And I am still pondering what to get the Mrs for Christmas - any ideas please post away in the comments section. I end with a question for Jabba The Hutt and Afriag (AFRI): tell me David Lenigas what is happening on January 20 2016? In the podcast I cover Infrastrata (INFA), disappointing news from Armadale Capital (ACP), Inspirit (INSP), Octagonal (OCT) - two John Gunn /Lenigas creations - Asian Citrus (ACHL), eServGlobal (ESG), Impact Holdings (IHUK) and ask the question could WH Ireland (WHI) - full dossier on its sins HERE - run out of free cash soon? The answer after today is that the pensioner muggers could well do so. Karma.

Once again sincere apologies to Jabba The Hutt groupies for failing to pick up David Lenigas on anything in yesterday's podcast. Before you all get cold turkey, I have a few observations about Octagonal (OCT) nonsense today.I start with a look at React Energy (REAC) a trainwreck involved in green energy shite. I suggest that anyone who believes in this hocus pocus nonsense should read "The Real Global Warming Disaster" by uncle Chris. Then it is onto Anglesey Mining (ATM), Golden Saint Resources (GSR), Slater & Gordon (TOAST) and Northern Petroleum (NOP). See you all tomorrow at Gold & Bears in London.

I have already demonstrated that the “investments” made by AIM listed Octagonal (OCT) – director Da vid Lenigas – are not worth anything like their stated value and that balance sheet support is illusory. But at least there was some cash. Or there was.

Anyone who was mad enough to back the Octagonal (OCT) placing at 2p this June is already 57.5% down. I guess by the standards of most David Lenigas placings of late that has to be viewed as a roaring success. I first touched on Octagonal as a car crash underway HERE and yesterday discussed its first rum and coke balance sheet entry HERE. But it gets worse (for Dave) and better for me.

Those mug punters who backed the 2p £1.7 million placing by David Lenigas AIM POS Octagonal (OCT) in June as it snapped up GIS, a firm owned by Big Dave’s pal John Gunn, have done better than most folks backing the fat Aussie share ramper. The shares are now 0.85p to sell, so in five months they have only lost 57.5%. Compared to other Lenigas car crashes that is not too bad. Now let’s start a series looking at what they actually bought.

Having been warned off by the thuggish PR to David Lenigas (HERE) I have asked AIM Regulation to get the low down on Big Dave's trades or otherwise in LGO Energy (see HERE). And then what next? Aha Octagonal (OCT), an AIM listed company where the aforementioned Mr David Lenigas is involved - needless to say its shares have slumped. Then it is onto Nanoco (NANO) and Wandisco (WAND) as well as Lonmin (LMI). Finally I commend to you last night's BBC programme by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on waste and the supermarkets. Can Malcolm Stacey reallysay the are ethical investments? I commend you all to watch it. Remember I grew up in a hippie self-sufficent family so maybe I am biased but I was horrified.
