The Chairman's Blog 15: Sir Benjamin Dover of Global Mining Endeavours is on a short list for the AIM Awards

By Tom Winnifrith | Friday 23 September 2016


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. Blog number fifteen....

23rd September

My son, young Ben, and his ghastly wife have indeed sprogged and returned to their house which means that Lady Dover and I are no longer caring for their existing brats and can return to Dover Towers. After a week with my "nearest and dearest", that is to say Lady Dover and the vermin grandchildren, I found myself longing for a trip to Dignitas but thankfully my ordeal is now over.

Naturally i was expecting young Ben to name his child Benjamin as is the family tradition. But his ghastly wife has intervened and I was informed in no uncertain terms that he is to be named, is is the modern way, after the place of conception, a role model for the lad and after the mother in order to ensure that he has no preconceptions of transgender identity. I have no idea what the frightful daughter in law is on about but you may congratulate me on the arrival of my new grandson Brighton Jeremy Camilla Dover. I am delighted to report that he is doing well, less delighted to report that so too is his dreadful mother.

Upon my return to Dover Towers I see that my ticket has arrived for the annual AIM Awards dinner on 14th October. This is to celebrate another year of glory and value creation on the World's Most Successful Growth Market and I have been invited to join those fine fellows from our Nomad Cantor Fitzgerald at one of its three tables. Booking three tables must have set Cantor back a few bob but with the commission it has earned on the 27 placings Global Mining Endeavours has completed since 2012, as we seek to broaden our shareholder base and respond to institutional demand, it must have a few spare quid going.

The shortlists for the awards are now out and I am delighted to see that I am on the shortlist for an award for AIM entrepreneur of the year sponsored by Cantor Fitzgerald.

The competetion is tough. There is my good friend Chris Cleverley of African Potash who knows how to interpret the AIM rule book better than anyone. That Robert Simon Terry fellow I met at the rugger the other day and a fellow called Mr Lin from a company called Naibu are also on the shortlist. Oh hang on, there is a note saying that Mr Lin has been detained in China and so since he cannot attend the final person on the short list is a Mr Costis Kebabopolis from a company called Globo.

From what I can gather this a a pretty competitive field but young Dickson from Cantors says that it will be all right, nudge, nudge wink wink. In his own words: You can bet your job on it.

I shall warn our PR guru Tarquin that when he and young Sebastian gets back from the annual Fire Island IR Convention they should start drafting a release.
