Hi Speedy, I use exactly the same name here as I do on Twitter so you & most others know exactly who I am, one of my first posts here was to respond to a welcome as a resident from one of your fellow posters, so I’ve never hidden who I am or my views on this project. When you DYOR I maybe I wrongly assumed you look at both the positives & potential negatives of a project before investing (& of course you should take financial advice from Money Saving Expert, who wouldn’t)....I posted last night because Snowman was nearly correct on process, but not quite, so I added some factual info that you should all be aware of...
Go well Speedy (& thanks Dawski)
in the past two days we've had about 30 posts here and 26 of those have been related to the marine licence,(including some fairly pointless posts as to whether Leesadee as a non investor should be posting here .Of course she should if she wants to.).
All red herring stuff! JW has assured us that all correct procedures are being followed and that "as a EU project of common interest( the project) is enitled to to receive expeditrd time frames in relation to licencing and permitting. So that's quite enough about that!
I'm far more interested in why the SP has declined so dramatically and in when it may turn itself around.
The initial phase of the reverse was brought about by manipulators in and around March 2019. A secondary phase was initiated by the last placement which was clearly flipped, as was the previous one. Currently, I believe the same group of manipulators are ensuring ,through their interventios,that the SP will not rise- for the time being. When they are ready it wii rise!
INFA is due EU grant money. It is due the appointment of a new chairman. It is due agreement with Equity and Debt partners. None of these important steps wll take place in August. It's the holidays, don't you know. I suspect that even JW is taking a rest.
But we are getting closer. So stop moidering about the marine licence and just concentrate on the SP machinations. That's the real music!!
Leesa. My answers to your comments are in BOLD:
Lol Speedy I've never hidden who I am, even that post states "for transparency", I'm upfront, honest, post links to facts & try to help with balance, which may not be appreciated by you, but others are maybe willing to look at all arguments & make informed choices...
YOUR FIRST POST ON THIS FORUM WAS MAY 3RD. 22 POSTS, HIGHLIGHTING MOSTLY NEGATIVE SENTIMENT, LATER YOU REVEALED "YOUR TRANSPARENCY."
IF I were investing money I would want to look at all available information before committing to supporting a project, wouldn't you?
HOW MANY SHARES DO YOU HOLD? THANKS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION BUT IF I WANT FINANCIAL ADVICE LIKE YOURS I'LL LOOK AT THE MONEY SAVING EXPERT WEBSITE!
Last one just issued !! Mike
Well " she" ( not that gender really matters at all as it should ) certainly has whipped up interest in this board which usually goes quiet approaching and during the weekend.
Whilst L is a most determined protaganist and some members fairly say that she should not appear here I do not object as I have always found her posts measured,erodite, and politely offered.Unlike others which are totally unacceptable in all respects
I do not agree with some of her facts at all but she does present an opposing reasoned view and should not be dismissed willy nilly. At least she is apparently NOT part of the vitriol and darn right rudeness of others
I am here for the Long Term like Snowman and all you others ..I did my research and D.D. before investing.The raison for the project is sound as we all know.JW is 110% keen on the Company complying with all aspects of legislation.We have made rapid and good progress since he joined. There were never any protests for 10+ years until viability of the project became clear and more certain in 2017
Like others here as you can expect I am too in a loss position but that is fully manageable as my family Trusts are well balanced and supported from other sources .You win some,you lose some.This one is high risk but over time the risk of the good ship's voyage have actually diminished.
I will treat L with quite some caution but I consider that as long as her posts here are factually accurate and fairly presented at least we have her viewpoint of the developing scene of opposing views.Sleep well whilst the project matures and rides the waves of the current choppy seas !
.. & thanks Si.. Can someone please change the subject line now as it's a bit weird lol...
Hi guys, appreciate that Snowman, this forum is for expressing & sharing views, as long as any info shared is factually correct & supported, & all are polite & reasonable, then all I believe are welcome ... Speedy telling people to "return to Twitter" is a tad rude, but I have a very thick skin, so no offence taken :)
I also agree with Snowy's sentiments. Living where I do (ANOB and SSSI) with very similar wildlife, I would be a hypocrite not to share the same concerns as the locals there.
I say Snowy!! a stiff reply!!
Here's one for you, well said and I fully concur with your setiments on the subject.
Here's another, it doesn't matter what new projects, similar types to ours, or where they are starting up, there will and always have been and will be voices against. What I want to see is the correct procedures adhered to by the people involved in such projects, something that JW certainly has done, then I see no issues whatsoever. Balance against these issues the benefits of such projects and I think most will agree they are beneficial to all.
I would add, just for the record that I hold a first class BSc honours in Environmental Sciences majoring in ecology and oceanography..........and I have faith that the marine checks will be sufficient to protect the environment.
Leesa. This is not personal but you're in the wrong place. This forum is for shareholders and investors, please return to twitter with your other protesting buddies.
Hi leesadee, Yes there no Need to be rude but there s no Need to Hide behind niceties. Even if steps are taken to safely dispose of the brine you Will still oppose the project. Which is politely said rather ludicrous
Leesa has said before that she is female and IMO her view is perfectly valid.....why shouldn't she not like the idea of the project? It's a free world. There is absolutely no need of abuse.
If I was a local, I would want to make absolutely sure that the brine discharge wouldn't cause harm to the marine bio in close proximity. Among other local species there are dolphins and Grey seals and it's only natural to want to protect them.
IMO the stringent marine environment checks, modelling and monitoring we are undertaking which are a statutory requirement are put in place by the marine authorities in order to protect them so they will not be harmed.
We will make sure we comply explicitly with that, and rightly so!
Meanwhile Leesa and all the locals are entitled to their protectionist views and I fully empathise with that.....but I'm sure all the due processes and safeguards when put in place will help to give them more confidence in our operation.
I've spoken with John in London and he's very environmentally sympathetic and aware and I'm 100% sure he is doing all that he could possibly do to conserve the environment during the temporary saline discharge. Saline discharge won't even be an issue once the solution mining stage is over.
I'm now battening down the hatches and getting ready for some stiff replies.
Hi whatamess, it is entirely possible to disagree with people & still be friendly & polite, and yes (for the 2nd time on this board) I'm a She :)
Speedy, i agree with you 100%, leesadee is putting up a friendly polite face when really we know this person wants the project to fail. If you see my post in the end the residents in the UK in the end lost, so leesadee Can fight tooth and nail as much as She likes. Is it a She ?
Lol Speedy I've never hidden who I am, even that post states "for transparency", I'm upfront, honest, post links to facts & try to help with balance, which may not be appreciated by you, but others are maybe willing to look at all arguments & make informed choices... If I were investing money I would want to look at all available information before committing to supporting a project, wouldn't you?
As always, go well :)
"The needs of the many outweigh the wants of the few!"
1) She holds no shares or interest in the success of Infa.
2) She is only here to discourage shareholder sentiment in the hope of lowering SP and support for the project.
3) She will fight tooth and nail to have us fail.
4) Her own words from a previous post, "For transparency, I will still have a problem with the generation of the caverns & associated saturated brine discharge, which will cause harm however it's spun. That's why storage for gas for which I have not been able to find a need causes concern."
can anyone see the similarities with islandmagee here. when John is talking about the dispersion models of the brine he is obviously referring to cases such as those. in the end the uk government approved the project to the disappointment of the protesters. if we consider that arlene is favourable to the project we could see the same in NI
i will post this interesting document about another gas storage project in the UK. the Preesall gas storage facility has been given the go ahead by the environment agency recently in 2016. the document does talk about a "diffuser" placed at a distance from shallow water to avoid damage to marine life and the coastline but that has not meant the fishers and or local residents changed their minds. this could hypothetically be whats in store for INFA
Did John ever get anywhere with his plan B, regarding disposing of brine elsewhere?
Hi Radders, appreciate your thoughts, & very fair & balanced... I posted last night as Snowmans comment that only the applicant can appeal a decision wasn't the complete picture, though that wasn't made clear in the news piece posted, so understandable you wouldn't have known that Snowman... Always better to be aware of all potential delays to make informed choices... & hi Longlad, I understand & appreciate where you are coming from with your comment, however the effects of the project would be the same with John or with a different company, & the same rules & environment laws & regulations would still apply however deep the pockets, so I can't quite see where there would be a difference between a small or larger company at the helm unfortunately..
Go well all :-)
Bloody good riddance!
Now we can move on.
