As one does, I discussed the benefit of assassination as an instrument towards the better governance of the state, specifically knocking off Trump. This was just an afterthought to my finalisation of social arrangements upon my American friend’s arrival in London. And there was the trouble: he never got this email since, presumably, the American authorities filtered out the possibility of his receiving it. Or so I presume.
I have for some time tended to presume that merely sending an email such that it pops up in my ‘sent’ file is proof that it was received by the intended recipient. I am not now so sure.
Mitie (LON:MTO) keeps sliding down. Which is, I suppose, only sensible given that the KPMG accounting review would surely have been completed and published if it were merely an exercise in identifying accounting principles as historically applied and now to be corrected. So I sniff summat else. I incline to conclude that this review is throwing up horrors – hence the delay. MTO is still a short sell at down to 150p.
Another mystery in life is why BooHoo (LON:BOO) is up at 155p. It cannot be justified.
Finally, Cheltenham starts tomorrow when grown men are reduced to blubbering emotional wrecks as the field for the 1.30 turns for home.
