When you think the law fails you it is time to take it into your own hands - Big Dave Lenigas is...Charles Bronson

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.

Having failed to ramp shares in UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) on the back of its utterly misleading RNS yesterday, an episode discussed at length here, Big Dave Lenigas tried to deflect attention by launching an amazing twitter rant at anti drilling protesters at Horse Hill. It started off as only semi-Musk but by the end, as you can see below, it was alarming.

First up Big Dave suggested that UK Oil & Gas shareholders march on Westminster to protest about the Police not tackling what he terms illegal protesting although much of what David Lenigas has objected to is 100% legal it is just that he does not support basic civil liberties. But it seemed that many UK Oil & Gas shareholders were washing their hair that day or were due to sign on at the Labour exchange so Big Dave upped the ante.

He claimed that Lyin' Steve Sanderson is a nice guy but that Big Dave will be "coming down hard" on the protesters. Hang on Dave, in this country it is the Police that enforce the law, you cannot - like Charles Bronson in the classic Death Wish series - just take it in to your own hands. How exactly do you plan on "coming down hard" on the "unwashed swampies"? Hosing them down personally? Setting the guard dogs on them? Prey do tell..

UK Oil shares have opened at just 2.15p to sell (but are still far too high as explained HERE) - methinks anyone who bought at 2.75p on the back of Lenigas twitter ramping yesterday may be thinking about their own protest.
