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 4

Sunday 21st August

What some of those business bashing wallahs round at the BBC do not realise as they moan on about boardroom pay is how bloody hard we at the coal face of capitalism all work. After our massage session on Saturday afternoon, my personal assistant Miss Skirt and I continued to consider some of the questions posed by the peasantry, that is to say our shareholders, well into the night. I shall be publishing a full Q & A session on Monday.

As Miss Skirt and I completed our business supper at The Ivy it became clear to me that I was likely to miss the last train and was therefore unable to head back to see Lady Dover in Surrey. Miss Skirt was forced to arrange emergency accommodation for us both at the Savoy. You will be pleased to know that Miss Skirt and I, shared a suite in order to ensure that shareholders funds were once again managed in the most prudent fashion. Indeed I would hope by now that the dedication of both myself and my personal assistant to cash management, and the sacrifices it involves, just goes without comment.

As I enjoyed some well earned shut-eye I was rudely wakened at 2.30 AM by my telephone alerting me to the presence of a new text message. I am not quite au fait with this texting malarky and so Miss Skirt dutifully read it out. The good Lady Dover appears to have sent to all in her address book "Its our Mo-Ment! Gold 4 Mr Farrah, Sign Petition to make it Sir Mo-Ment HERE".

What is the silly woman on about? Some of us have slaved away seven days a week for years and have had to pay over large amounts of the money we have raised from investors as political donations to the Conservative Party to get our knighthoods. Now just because some little darkie runs quickly he wants to become a Sir too? Quite frankly this debases the whole honours system.

It was just a few hours later when PR man Tarquin called and screamed excitedly "Have you read the Sunday Express?" I can't think quite why I would have bought the sort of newspaper that the cleaning lady back at Dover Towers reads. But before I could answer Tarquin continued "I got them to tip Global Mining Endeavours."

It was in a general round up but there was no mistake "Shares in hidden AIM gem Global Mining Endeavours slipped to 0.04p last week with traders blaming Brexit but the selling was overdone and our sources suggest that well known punters in the know are building up a position ahead of big news soon. Buy."

But Tarquin, I said, that is completely untrue in every single respect: what imbecile came up with that? Anyhow, if it is not in the Financial Times does it matter anyway? Tarquin seemed a little hurt as he revealed that he had dictated it word to word to some journalist who was looking to get into PR and so would write whatever he was told. Apparently the Express reaches out to another target quadrant of the investor spectrum. Tarquin said that on the internet, various tweeters were already discussing the article with some commentators such as our loyal long term shareholder Mr B Gibraltar saying that the shares are really worth 0.5p.

I have no idea what the boy is on about but it all seems like good news and should help that oik Bellis from Beaufort Securities as he works on getting the placing away.

Tarquin says that as part of his integrated IR and PR communications grid he has arranged for me to be interviewed tomorrow on some sort of TV station on the internet by a fellow called Mr Mir who sounds like some sort of fuzzy wuzzie but apparently went to Harrow and so knows how to play the game. I suppose that I must start preparing for that today. Work, work, work, there is just no day of rest for we great industrialists and our personal assistants.
