Oh dear. Poor old Evil Knievil who has been a perma bull of Watchstone (WTG), the former Quenron (QPP), loftily dismissing claims by Slater & Gordon for £637 million and my analysis as not worth the paper they were writen on. Oh how bullish was the great man, at 141p, just a few weeks ago as he posted his bon mots on a Bulletin Board. The shares have duly plunged to just 97.5p so costing EK and his fellow BB Morons a good packet. Poor Evil. Poor BB Morons.

Last year the clowns at Aussie keystone-lawyers Slater & Gordon (SGH) filed an annual report on 19 September. That was within the three months of the June 30 year end dictated by the ASX. This year, is there a Quindell (QPP) induced problemo? No Annual Report has bee published yet.

One of the things that jumps out from the 2014 Quindell (QPP) accounts was the candid level of disclosure about the NIHL business. Rob Terry and the rest of the committing fraud squad would never have given this much info. Schoolboy errors all round from the Newbies. Bearing in mind that previously the first anyone ever heard of this shit was the investor presentation in June 2014 and that which we at ShareProphets subsequently pulled to pieces, the starting point has to be the numbers of claims.

Last December I speculated that the biggest insurance partner of the fraud Quindell (QPP), Swinton, was set to cancel its arrangements. On 10th December newly appointed CEO Rob Fielding gave my critics much joy as he announced a new multiyear deal. Oh what a prat Winni is. The shares surged higher. Oh dear, the deal does not look to be multi-year at all unless 1+ 0 = 2 in the same way that 2+2 can = 5.

Shares in the biggest stockmarket fraud for 30 years, Quindell (QPP), are currently suspended at 124p valuing it at around £625 million on a fully diluted basis. But what is it actually worth? Some brokers are marking it down to 0p because of the suspension but it is probably not worth 0p – thanks to the folly of the Aussie prats at Slater & Gordon – but it might just be.

First the polite Steve Moore, the rather more brutal TW to follow. SM: Towards the end of last month I noted that as Quindell plc (QPP) had been in the news, the acquirer of its Professional Services Division, Slater & Gordon, had been in the spotlight in Australia – S&G eventually admitting that the Australian Securities & Investment Commission had been in contact with its auditor, though that “we remain very confident in the robustness of our accounting practices”.

I have known for months and months and reported it here that the Serious Fraud Office had at least interviewed folk on Quindell (QPP). The weekend press suggests that the SFO is now formally on the matter, something that has massive implications for insider dealer and fraudster Rob Terry, Quindell and possibly for Slater & Gordon. This comes on a day when Quindell warns that its accounts will be delayed – oh dear, oh dear.

Quob Park Estates the new vehicle of Mr Robert Simon Terry of Quindell infamy has just released a "research report" overnight on Quindell (QPP) which accuses the new board of hiding facts - most notably of hidden share options and staff departures - but also of destroying shareholder value in the businesses that remain. It also discloses that Quob Park has sold all its shares in Quenron though it argues that the group is still worth 172p (down from 210p). The document also tries to rewrite history.

I am 100% sure that the reason Slater & Gordon boought Quindell (QPP) is because the Oz firm is going ex growth. It overpaid in order to justify its own ludicrous valuation. Now if you need evidence of what a total pup it bought, a source close to Zebra has contacted me at the hovel.

At one level a triumph. Quindell threatened me with libel action becuase I accused it over overstating its profits ahead of and after its rescue bailout in November 2013. I accused it of fraud. It has today said those profits will be restated. It thus raised money on a fraudulent prospectus and folks should go to jail. Those who bought at 660p+ on the basis of those bogus, fraudulent profits and other lies should be demanding that Rob Terry be prosecuted becuase they will never get that money back.

For someone who has been completely wrong about the possibility of a significant cash offer being made for Quindell (QPP), I should be thankful that I haven't lost more money on my last short trade, which I entered into at an average of about 115p.

If a quoted company issues a statement that misleads investors it and its executive officers are guilty of market abuse. Quindell (QPP) did just that yesterday and thus I have again written to the FCA asking it to launch yet another investigation into Quindell and its chairman David Currie and CEO Robert Fielding. Yes that is the same Mr Fielding who bought RTA for £68.40 in December 2014 and sold it to Quenron for £2 million a couple of weeks later. Quite why he has not been suspended by Quindell’s HR Manager Jill Harrison for that pending a full investigation defies belief.

Aussie law form Slater & Gordon must be getting pretty pissed at having to issue Oz RNS releases clarifying the lies issued by Quenron. Once again a Quisling journalist has made definitive statements about an offer made by S&G for Quindell’s QLS unit.

Those following me on Twitter (through @WShak1) will have noted that I closed all of my shorts on Quindell at around 71p a few weeks ago. The trade proved to be a very profitable but, given my negative view of Quindell, it may have seemed strange that I closed at all. I hope I was clear on my reasons why, which were based primarily on the notion that I expected another "rampathon" by promoters that would allow me to re-open my short from higher levels. Aside from any argument over its merits as an investment, Quindell has proven itself to be extremely volatile and there is money to be made if one is confident enough to trade around the huge swings.

Supporters of Quindell (QPP) and even Paul Scott – a neutral – have taken comfort from the fact that the MD of Slater & Gordon has said that there is nothing wrong with the QLS business model and take that forward to argue that a 0p target for the shares is unrealistic. Here is why they are wrong.

On Monday 22 February the fraud Quindell (QPP) put out a statement that misled investors as to the status of its discussions with Slater & Gordon as to the sale of QLS. Slater and Gordon was forced to clarify the situation with its own statement. Shares soared on the Quenron RNS but retreated as S&G revealed the truth. As such this begs the real question as to whether David Currie, the chairman of Quenron and old pal of Mr Robert Simon Terry, is guilty of market abuse. I have written to the FCA today asking it to launch a formal enquiry.
