Cancellation Week

Corbyn has missed a trick in coming up with just four extra bank holidays. He needs a fifth known as – what else – St Jeremy’s Day. And then he should show a stroke of genius: he should join them all together in just one week and henceforth this week shall be known as Cancellation…

I apologise for filing copy late this morning but I have only just got in from the overnight train from Liverpool where I have been buying a week’s supply of cocaine. (I also applied to be a striker for Everton but mysteriously encountered delays.) However, I have not wasted my time. And, every now and…

There is something profoundly infantile about the civic leaders (so claimed) of Liverpool. I think we have a national duty to take the p*** out of Liverpool. Otherwise they’ll never grow up. I knew it was a blunder on the part of Michael Howard to send Boris Johnson up to Liverpool to apologise for Boris’s…

Following up my piece last week on MP Evans (MPE) and REA (RE.), here are some interesting notes on REA prepared by a friend a couple of days ago: “It is agreed that M P Evans (MPE) will be taken over by KLK. What I found very interesting in the results was on Page 9 (…

Seemingly, it is full steam ahead for Cadiz (CDZI on Nasdaq), now $15.35. I never understood what the environmentalists ever wanted in the first place. Anyway, Trump says that they can’t have it. ***** Meanwhile the torrent of scepticism about Tesla grows and grows. Keep buying those put options. TSLA closed at $302 on Friday.…

MP Evans (MPE) reported a couple of days ago. It was a strong statement. And it finished off with the directors’ advice that in their view the shares are worth £11 in contrast with their current £7.50. The directors are sensible people and their view should be taken seriously. Indeed, day after day, MPE keeps…

Further analysis: readers will recall that last week the question of the analysis of the £60bn claimed by the EU from us arose since it was clear that nobody seemed to know the answer. This morning we get fresh data. For it transpires that Iain Duncan Smith, who, admittedly, is on our side, declares that…

Long term savers get tax deduction when setting aside sums in a pension fund. HMG is determined that the saver cannot have his money without paying tax on withdrawals. So far so good. But the funds have to be handled by a pensioner trustee. In my case it is Curtis Banks Limited and the funds…

Analysis please: the Remainers have come up with this figure of £60bn as a lump sum to be paid to the EU before anything happens. The trouble is that no analysis is offered. And, anyway, would you pay £60bn in advance (his request) to Michel Barnier? **** There must be a huge surplus of funds…

Mrs May’s staff yesterday repeated her wish that no general election will occur before 2020. This is extraordinary. Time and again, events must pop up that will give Mrs May difficulties in commanding the House of Commons. It must be hugely tempting to go to the country when, surely, she would sweep it, if not…
