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. Blog number sixteen....

Tarquin our PR guru and his young friend Sebastian are back from the IR shindig at Fire Island and are hard at work as we strep up our campaign to ensure that I am honoured as the Entrepreneur of the year at the AIM awards next month. Some may see this quest for an award as personal vanity. Au contraire. As I am fond of saying "There is no I in Team" and so let's ensure I win this award to ensure I attract more institutional investment into Global Mining Endeavours as I focus unflinchingly on the creation of shareholder value.

It is suggested by young Tarquin that we might put forward an even stronger case if we strengthened our non executive team and to that end I asked my old friend Chris Cleverley from African Potash how we might add a true heavyweight to the board.

Chris said that what we need is a political "name" with a true grasp for numbers. He is lucky to have Lord Hain on board who as an MP claimed more expenses than all bar one of his colleagues. It will be hard to match that.

But my attention is drawn to Sir Henry Bottomface the former MP for West Buckinghamshire a man with a largely blameless career in politics untainted with the stain of having risen anywhere up the greasy pole. True, he had a spot of bother claiming on expenses five different homes as his principal residence. But as the former chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Committee on Relations with Offshore Tax Havens he is well connected in the world of finance.

He sounds like my sort of chap. Tarquin says that he has a young Romanian friend who knows Sir Henry well and can help to make an introduction.

In anticipation of this I feel that we may need an extra seat at the AIM awards dinner and have asked Miss Skirt to put a call into our most excellent Nomad, Stuart Dickson at Cantor Fitzgerald
