the government not selling at 6 quid I think is partly inertia,they are inundated with problems,which of course leads to inaction I am trying to tidy up the place here,whatever I work on,most problems remain unchanged even unchanged for years,simply because I have accumulated too much stuff over the years,almost like some of those hoarders on television! meanwhile problems with Windows XP,I've spent the entire day trying to reinstall the Adobe suite, firstly I may need to reinstall Windows,then I have to reinstall all the software etc.But I may need to move to the newest version of Windows.its a form of contagion,the computer itself is a nightmare to keep under control the problems of the government are something similar,the NHS,the deficit,the prisons,the home office,etc its a quagmire.RMG is the last thing on their mind.before the IPO very interested,afterwards not Now I no longer hoard stuff,but the stuff I have already hoarded which includes eg all my lecture notes from uni, hundreds of DVDs,a huge amount of books on a huge amount of topics,etc. all has to be meticulously processed as there are many priceless gems governance structures including former ones such as RMG are also a kind of hoarding,it takes a lot of effort to redo anything at all properly.even the employees are a kind of hoarding of people at the helm of government are just a few individuals: Cameron,Osborne,Vince,Clegg,and a few others.they are overwhelmed by too many other problems eg UKIP,the scottish referendum,lobbyists,donors,... I think they've achieved some useful things,eg raising the tax threshold and er um dunno the people lower down the hierarchy only do what they are told to,initiative mostly wont be tolerated.There are a lot of vested interests also,where people gain from inefficiencies when faced with too many problems,politicians often then do nothing at all,because its all too daunting I am gradually getting the place under control now mainly by becoming fed up,anger often leads to progress.eg I got an unsolicited call from some charity,I immediately said I'm not interested.then the guy asked if he could phone at a more convenient time,I said no he couldnt.and that was that! in the past I would have been too polite. Also no more buying,instead throw away as much junk as possible. the RMG share price having rocketed so unbelievably at the IPO,I dont think any genuine investor thought it would then plummet so much.Had the government tried to start selling at 600,that itself could have caused the price to plummet,basically big money getting the government shares on the cheap that's what happened when Gordon sold off some 400 tons of gold http://www.zerohedge.com/contributed/2012-07-10/gordon-brown-sold-britain%E2%80%99s-gold-artificially-low-prices-bail-out-large-ameri
we are nearly there
Wow with another 8.30p rise today taking it to £4.14,maybe it will smash the £13 prediction given the ambient mayhem in the oil markets, that must surely be part of the dynamics of manipulation, this will play perfectly into the share price as fuel will be cheaper this is a conspiracy so the govt can dump stock prior to the election at maybe £20,
tonycl and Richard
Tony, completely agree the government should have sold their remaining 30% when it was £6 odd. Problem was they were still too much in the public eye for underselling the company at £3.30 and it was too soon. Will be interesting to see what they finally sell for and when! And indeed nice to see the Santa rally....let's hope it continues! Richard, how you think I'm guilty of using "obscene language" is beyond me! Last I checked, "vociferous" and "poppycock" were far from obscene, but feel free to report me if it makes you feel better! As I said, you're more than welcome to express your opinions on here - I'm not trying to deny you that right! Indeed occasionally you make very good points! Your £4 was a lucky strike but given that you also predicted £13 by Jan 2015, I don't think anybody really takes your predictions all that seriously, especially when you throw in terms like "ambient mayhem" and the "dynamics of manipulation", or other such poppycock!
A nice santa rally
Regards Doffer, good to know you're still in this share. It's taken a pasting for reasons (imho) totally unconnected to its basic core business. This latest report seems to have swayed a fair few into feeling the' vociferous' reception VC received may have abated and that the political downward pressure on the sp may evaporate. Hopefully onward and upward. Cheers ( and a Happy Christmas)
Richard, I think you quite enjoy being ridiculed or getting near to the mark retorts. I remember you mentioned one time that I was indeed trolling you which was quite amusing. You are quite clearly an intelligent individual and I just think you enjoy a bit of stick. If you are having to report a lot of posters in regards to this RMG board, maybe its not the board for you. I can stand my ground with anyone but I would rather not to get ribbed by posters. I have not a clue HOW you are going to take my post, hopefully in good faith.. You are your own man and you clearly have no problem with being disliked.. I have a different view on life. Happy Xmas Sir.
I am not a vociferous poster, but am just defending myself from quite vicious posts. I have reported your post which used obscene language. have a nice day! you are acting beyond your authority, I can post whatever opinions I wish, if you dont like this, either ignore or report my post. I exercise my right to express opinions: my prediction of 400 was very accurate. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
