Folli Folie, the Greek fraudsters, today attempted to refuse claims by Gabriel Grego that they were lying, inter alia, about store numbers and so in a release to the Athens Stock Exchange published a list of 587 stores. It has taken me one hour to prove clear and big lies on this list as I shall demonstrate below.

A good day for the bears here in New York. First up I walked up from Battery Park to see where I used to work in the black and white era on Wall & Water. It is now being turned into luxury apartments. Anhow, I wandered on past the New York Stock Exchange and, as you can see, the tickers were all red. Then later on it was to meet the King of the fraudsters my pal Sam Antar who, as you can see below, is in relaxed mood. More on that in today's bearcast.

Do you think Yosi got the machine below from Telit's (TCM) Vietnamese distributor of Internet products?

If you want more photos of burly men in leather check out Yosi's facebook page.

The last time there was a mega merger in the housebuilding sector was 2007. Can you remember what happened next? Exactly. And thus today Bovis (BVS) announced that it had received bid approaches from both Redrow (RDW) and Galiford Try (GFRD). It has rejected both.

With her 5 low grade GCSE's and diploma in media studies Cloudtag (CTAG) moron Hayley reckons she is better educated then (sic) me as part of a storm of tweet insults she sent me. Poor Hayley must be feeling a bit down given that shares in Quindell (oops, that is what her dim twin Kate backed & insulted me over), I mean Cloudtag, are suspended. So to make her feel better here is her promo photoshoot from the modelsfor facebook site. Always happy to support someone at the start of their career I bring you it in full. I warn you that Hayley is not dressed for going outside in these chilly winter days.

How will the 1% preserve the wealth they have extracted from the rest of us, the 99%. That is the question that the world's best know resource investor, Sprott, posed this week. Over to the experts.

Hello Share Twinklers. As Uncle Tom would have it, Photo-me (PHTM) is my favourite company. I’m not sure about that but it is still rather galling for me to have to report that the shares are down 15% as I write. It has, to be fair, motored upwards for a few days earlier on the expectation of a preliminary results statement which came out today. But that statement is not at all bad, and I fancy that the 15% fade will soon start to look a lot better.

Jim Bagot, the Essex pensioner mugged by WH Ireland (WHI), relieved of most of his life savings by John Molyneux stuffing him into wholly inappropriate stocks is on the warpath back outside the offices of the disgraced broker. We recorded a video with Jim this morning and have photos of him in action. Enjoy.

I shall put the photo up later on TomWinnifrith.com but this is the first snake of the current greek trip - day 6 and one down!. I am a modest man, as you know, but feel that I have little to be modest about in saying that this really is a most excellent podcast covering Nostra Terra (NTOG), Avanti Communications (AVN) and a new lawyers letter,, Outsourcery (OUT) and LGO Energy (LGO) all in some detail.

I mentioned last week that Deputy Sheriff Towers had a small matter which needed to be resolved with Slater & Gordon Solutions (SGH). As Tom Winnifrith readies his Castlemaine XXXX and popcorn for tonight’s excitement down under as Slater and Gordon publishes its results, I thought I’d pass on my experience of dealing with the UK outfit.

So where did all the money go in Greece? To the fat cat politicians and industrial barons of course. I now bring you a photo of a Greek fat cat I encountered.

Last night there was no riot. Greece is capitulating but Europe is pretending that all is well. There will be another can kick on Sunday dressed up as a solution and thus no Grexit. Alex Tsipras has – as the Communists and I predicted – sold out his people but if Europe thinks it has resolved the Greek issues it is kidding itself as I explain.
