I explain the nature of the fraud and why I am so livid. My anger is compounded by Wrexham Council and its inability to sign roadworks which wasted half an hour of my life. Then I find I agree with David Lenigas on something: can life get any worse? I discuss Argo BlockChain (ARB), PureCircle (PURE), Cabot Energy (VAB), Watchstone (WTG) and Toople (TOOP). Maybe I have a second question for Neil Woodford, will anyone pay £250 for me to ask it? If you are yet to donate to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks we are now at £27,000 raised so please chip in HERE.

In this bearcast I look at Avanti Communications (AVN), Watchstone (WTG) and Sound Energy (SOU). The maltese Police were meant to have found Julie Meyer and dragged her to the Courts today where a company where she is the sole director faced criminal charges over unpaid wages. Have they found her or is she, as one Meyer-ologist tells me, back in the UK having skipped Malta midweek. If anyone has any information please feel free to get in touch.

For those who think Rob Terry,, the king of the fraudsters, has got away with the £3 billion Quindell (QPP) scam, there was confirmation today that the Serious Fraud Investigation continues. Actually you can see that on the SFO's website but that Watchstone (WTG) - Quenron wi8th a face lift - confirmed it suggests it is still co-operating. Of course it is. Its new managers loathe the criminal Terry. I do expect arrests this year. The other news - a lack of profits warning and again this is Terry's mess.

But as you can see below, the great man's Knob Park blog has been silent for almost three months. Perhaps there is something else on his mind?

Watchstone Group (WTG) has filed its High Court defence against Slater & Gordon's £649 million claim against it for having been sold the fraud that was Quindell Legal Services (QLS).

In its most recent statement Watchstone (WTG) group suggested that the potential class action against it from folks who lost cash as a result of frauds orchestrated by Rob Terry in the Quindell (QPP) era was minimal. Au contraire. The potential liability was estimated at £9 million but the number of claimants has more than doubled to 1,100 according to a letter sent to claimants which they have been told they must not pass on under threat of legal action. Luckily we have the Winnileaks service.

Those seeking to oust the board at Stratex (STI) have not been playing with a straight bat as an RNS late yesterday made clear. They are vermin who should be sent packing.

I am warming to Blur (BLUR) after today's placing and am almost tempted to nibble now that ghastly Phil Letts and his even more ghastly Mrs have gone. There is a detailed analysis of interims from Watchstone (WTG) - Quindell as was. Do not get suckered by that headline cash number. It is not real and the shares are a sell.
