Keep dreaming little buddy. The silent majority stands with the President and virtually everybody other than international and EU goons wants peace with Russia. Could not have been more proud of him. There are evil forces in the world that want tension and war mongering with Russia. But make no mistake, the common people want good relations.

Stock Market Hi
Wed 23:38
We are always being told that business hates uncertainty yet the stock market is sailing along and employment has reached its highest figure in years. Those are the facts which I accept -"because Mrs May proclaimed them to the house today" so it must be true !!!!
Chris Patten is forecasting an election by November - the Conservative Party is a real snake pit at the moment - how much more uncertainty does The City need?
The most useful thing to come out of all this blood letting would be if the Conservative Party were to splinter or at least become two parties. This would result in de facto "proportional representation" which could really cause trouble for the Conservatives whilst enabling the Parliament to address the democratic deficit which is so noticeable both here in Northern Ireland and in the UK.
I well remember Garret's comment when PR was first used in Ireland in order to strengthen democracy - Garrett stated that he felt that it would improve democracy but found "that it produced too much Democracy" - as if that was likely.

Good luck all.

Irish Banking Culture Board (IBCB)
Wed 09:37
https://merrionstreet.ie/en/News-Room/Releases/Minister_Donohoe_welcomes_progress_in_establishing_the_Irish_Banking_Culture_Board.html\\\

The banks informed the Minister that the review and design phase for the new entity, which will now be called “The Irish Banking Culture Board” (IBCB) has now been completed. The Board will be an independently led entity to ensure that the industry is focused on the best interests of the customer and leads to a sustainable banking industry that promotes the highest standards of behaviour and professionalism.

The establishment of the Board was an initiative from the banking industry in Ireland aimed at rebuilding trust and confidence in the industry following the tracker mortgage scandal. It was first announced in December 2017 and the establishment costs and annual running costs will be funded by the retail banks themselves.

Is it nine resignations - now they are looking to end the parliamentary session on Thursday - instead of burying their heads in a bucket of sand. It could of course be to frustrate Boris who should have made his speech on resigning today, but of course that does not apply to him because he is not a team player.

Meanwhile "The Donald" bestows his latest proclamation in Helsinki, whether we want to hear it or not - is anyone thinking about Magic Mushrooms. This man is well on his way to being impeached - but it was fun while he lasted.

Good luck all....

RE: And the ground shook

Good post Torquay!

They call it 'the queens highway' and they regard their right to march down it as sacrosanct. Reality is that these marches are a statement of domination, disrespect and humiliation for Catholics! The parades commission was set up to oversee contentions parades and has been quite successful. It is qutie normal to see kerbstones painted either red, white and blur or green white and gold, irish or british flags but mostly the murals have gone. Be clear that although there is now a relative peace in Northern Ireland the old divisions have not gone away and are festering away under the surface ready at any moment to take us back to a past we most certainly do not want to revisit!!!

RE: And the ground shook
Fri 23:03
When the last of the bands had passed "the visitors," still sitting in their camping chairs, opened their car boots and took out their picnics - before journeying down the street for an ice cream or to sit in "the field" and listen to a speech being delivered from a hut mounted on a lorry with help of loudspeakers which was parked amongst the mobile chip vans and burger burners which accompany all such events - so that any financial benefit to the local community is minimised but they still have have to clear up after them.

When all were rested and refreshed, the speeches concluded, the bands did it all again as they "marched" back up the Main Street on their way to the coaches which had brought them. The sound of those drums - which seemed to get even louder as they approached and paused outside the parish church - can really be quite annoying when compared with a real band like the Royal Marines.The turn out was impressive though, it even included the brethren who could no longer march - they're ferried by a fleet of cars - two relics were paraded in a limo wearing all the bling and waving their white gloved hands like the Queen Mother.

After their final flourish they left and our men in yellow coats set to work - by seven o'clock all the flags were gone and the street cleaning commenced - by eight o'clock it felt like Newcastle again, thanks to our wonderful bin men who volunteered their services at normal rates of of pay. They really did an excellent job, by this morning the town was ours again.

Normal service has resumed - we had a requiem this morning with another tomorrow.

When I said that we were attending our first and probably last march it was truer than I thought because neither of us would be interested in seeing and HEARING another.

Good luck all.

And the ground shook
Fri 22:26
Our little Idyll here by the sea was visited yesterday by the "Orange Men of County Down" - well some of it - for what they call a march. In order for this to happen the town must first be decorated with as many flags as possible, placed where they cannot be torn down or burned, in our case they used a cherry picker. We knew they were coming from three months before, instead of going down to Dublin or Wicklow for the day we decided to stay and watch the event.

We started the day with mass as we do most days - on our way to the church we met our first "visitors" who were already claiming their places along the pavement by lining up their camping chairs between the parked cars and all along the pavement. When we came out of the church the town felt occupied, Orange Men were appearing all over the place as they made their way to the assembly point at the far end of the town, where the Orange Hall was open and men in their regalia were strolling around.

The March - when it started - was an hour late setting off, we had finished our lunch so we set off to view it at the end of the road as it runs into the main street down which The March processed. What we heard first was the noise of the drums, next came the banners and then the first of the parade was passing us with what was described to me as the "Blood and Thunder Drum" which was being beaten by a brawny fellow who seemed only to want to burst it. I learned later that there is an award for the drummer who makes the most noise - if he breaks the drum by bursting it, no matter because spare skins are carried for quick replacement so that the Blood and Thunder is maintained.

The bands and there followers in their collars follow one after the other - they all include a Blood and Thunder but they all play different march time MOOZICK at the same time, accompanied by plenty of small drums which produce a most impressive cacophony of noise. We probably had about thirty five bands in all, each being followed by the Lodge Master or chief wizard and those members of the lodge who are able to march or shuffle.

The bands themselves were mostly not that impressive in spite their banners, bearing legends such "The Red Hand Defenders," some wore brown winkle-picker or black unpolished shoes which tarnished the appearance of what I am sure was intended to be viewed as a militia. Two bands were outstanding however - a pipe band in brown kilts and patent shoes and one of the bands from Kilkeel which must have performed for the new Baron, because they were smart.

Insiders never suffer losses...
12 Jul '18
How can the stock price of a great business be very undervalued and management be unconcerned? (Successive fundraisings that dilute long term holders are a sign of that, for example).

Copied from a post by Escovido who quotes Benjamin Graham, the father of value investing, who worked this out 50 years ago in his book “The Intelligent Investor” - so not a new problem.

“Why is it that insiders may have no interest of their own in following policies designed to provide an adequate dividend return and an adequate average market price? It is strange how little this point is understood. Insiders do not depend on dividends and market quotations to establish the practical value of their holdings. The value to them is measured by what they can do with the business when and if they want to do it. If they need a higher dividend to establish this value, they can raise the dividend. If the value is to be established by selling the business to some other company, or by recapitalising it, or by withdrawing unneeded cash assets, or by dissolving it as a holding concern, they can do any of these things at a time appropriate to themselves.

“Insiders never suffer loss from an unduly low market price which it is in their power to correct. If by any chance they should want to sell, they can and will always correct the situation first. In the meantime they may benefit from the opportunity to acquire more shares at a bargain level, or to pay gift (and prospective estate) taxes on a small valuation, or to save heavy surtaxes on larger dividend payments, which for them (sic) would mean only transferring money from one place where they control it into another.”

Maybe time for external shareholders to realign the 'insiders' motivations!
