By Tom Winnifrith | Friday 19 August 2016

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. 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.

Following the example set by Paul Warwick the chairman of worthless penny stock Andalas (ADL) in starting a blog, Sir Benjamin Dover of AIM listed Global Mining Endeavours has decided to follow suit and like Paul promises to be Candid in his approach. Day 2

Global's PR man Tarquin says that I must try harder with this blogging. I dictated yesterday's entry to my Personal Assistant Miss Skirt but upon opening my copy of the Financial Times this morning I could not find my words of wisdom anywhere. If it is not in the Financial Times then what is the point I wonder but Tarquin says we are "targeting a different quadrant of the investor spectrum as part of our social media strategy."

I have no idea what the little squirt is on about but his father was a jolly good fag back at Eton, before I was sent down after that little incident, and so I shall humour him and do as I am told.

I see that our shares have now drifted to 0.0425p. One fears that the whole world now knows what that oik Bellis at Beaufort is up to. Targquin is already drafting the release "has raised £750,000 with instututional investors." M&G I ask? Is it Jamie Hambro (I knew his father at Eton) or old Harrington-Frobisher at Fidelity, another of my Eton fags? Tarquin is a little quiet on that one as he takes another call from Bellis for a progress report.

Tarquin suggests that I blog again as that will help Bellis as he battles away on the front line. When I was a boy we used to have a deputy under-gardener called Bellis. I rather wonder if the two men are related in any way?

Tarquin says that I must reach out to our ordinary investors and "interact" with them. I met these people at last year's AGM and I must say that I found it a most disagreeable experience. There were a couple of elderly gentleman dressed like tramps and smelling of wee wee who kept on asking why the company was paying not only me but also for Miss Skirt's invaluable services as my personal assistant. And there were some other men there who looked like the sort of fellows you get round to assist you when your lavatory is blocked and who spent the whole meeting trying to twitter. Whatever that is.

But with Bellis and Tarquin sounding increasingly panicked I should tell you shareholders that I am very grateful for all the kind comments that Tarquin assures me that you made about my first bloggy thing, and I am very keen to "interact" with all of you. If you have any questions please send them to my assistant [email protected] . Tarquin says that we shall ignore any tough queries and instead answer easy questions that he has provided and so in that vein I look forward to "interacting" with all you peasants.

I apologise. Miss Skirt when typing up my blog please remove the words "you peasants" and replace it with "fellow and highly regarded shareholders"
