Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
You couldn’t make this up: ShareProphets has piled scandal upon scandal on to the authorities at the London Stock Exchange (LSE), with particular reference to the (complete non-) regulation of the AIM Casino. And so, with a golden opportunity to face down the critics the LSE decided that it did not want Tom Winnifrith present. No matter that he is a shareholder, turning up with proof of ownership and photo ID. No matter that, as a journalist, he had already been given clearance to attend. No, the LSE didn’t want any awkward questions. Is that because they knew that Tom is correct, and that therefore they would not be able to answer?
