Have to say the government is also wasting a lot of money at the moment on a Brexit advertising campaign - they keep changing their minds! But on a different note Happy Birthday Tex2374 - my husbands birthday as well! I’m afraid you didn’t get your birthday present of good news from Sirius today - perhaps tomorrow!
Don’t call me madam for starters. And secondly I haven’t lost any money yet - you can accuse me of that in ten years time. And thirdly as I posted on this board yes I used our extension money when I initially invested which was both our money, and one other top up of our money which he agreed to. The rest, and most of it, was my money from my fathers inheritance if you really must know and I paid back the original money. Would my dad have approved - my mum seems to think so - does my husband approve - no - but luckily he appreciates all the money I’ve put into our marriage and doesn’t control me
Whatever any of the vulture type posters on here say, when they are circling around this board pecking away at those few genuine posters left posting, is going to make no difference to me. As if I’d take any advice from people like you. I just hope whatever you get out of it is worth it. Good luck to all other posters though in whatever you decide to do.
lol to you skier - it’s easy to knock people behind a keyboard - we can all do that - it’s only typing words - have you ever been on a trade visit to China with the Prime Minister as CEO of your company? I recon you’ve got a big chip on your shoulder.
It’s just I noticed you as one of the main posters after taking my filters off two days ago - 13 times yesterday and about 8 already this morning and it’s only 10.00am. You must find Sirius very very interesting - sorry but I’m usually too trusting on here but I don’t buy what your saying
illbetabuck - what I don’t get is why are you posting on here so much? And why do you only post on Thomas Cook, Metro and here? For someone who seems such an expert on investing don’t you ever post on companies you hold shares in that are successful?
Honestly, going to try and not read this board as I can’t help myself jumping in to try and stick up for my investment against what seems so many people. Why can’t some who aren’t even invested just wait and see what happens next. This might be done in stages, a strategic partner found for the next part that would significantly de-risk the rest of the project in other backers eyes. And who knows we might get gov guarantee for that next stage not the whole lot - just a stage. The SP would go up and things would start to look better. I can see how frustrated CF must be with the way the last year has played out, and yes maybe he has used the wrong words to an ambitious young journalist who knows the only way up for her is to bend his words. I’m sure he wasn’t meaning he’d like to betray all his shareholders - more he wished he could just get on with the job without being at the mercy of the stock market - I’d wish the same in his position. He must be mentally drained though and unfortunately slipped up. Anyone who knows CF personally have all said the same about him - he would do his best for SH’s. A lot who are down on paper like me could have walked away with a handsome profit but we didn’t - we were quite happy to trust in CF then - but unfortunately, looking back, we should have sorted finance earlier and we didn’t. But who knew what an absolute mess we would be in today with our parliamentary system. It’s so so negative on here and it’s hard for anyone who believes still in this company to read. Let’s just see what happens - it’s our money if we lose it. It’s all very well for people to criticise and I know lots of investors are let down and angry, and I truly understand that, but others are jumping in on the bandwagon and it’s all getting out of hand. A lot want this to fail for different reasons but whatever anyone says there is still everything to play for with this project and when you do try and say that on here - you’re made out to be some sort of gambling addict - truth is we see things differently and many of us are in it for the LT. We know things aren’t great and because of that this board should be somewhere we can discuss where we’re at and it isn’t - it’s just been taken over by people who have no interest in Sirius and want it to fail.
I recon any shareholder that survives reading this board deserves a party. Last night I took all my filters off bec the green boxes were stressing me out and I feel mentally drained after reading all the posts today - it’s like going into battle everyday and that’s nothing to do with the rubbish SP!
From the company an hour ago:
’Following media queries, we have provided a very clear statement that there is no intention to take Sirius Minerals private. Our focus continues to be on completing our strategic review and unlocking the value of our project for shareholders, our community, and the UK as a whole’.
Wish I’d kept my filters on - just wasted an hour of my life
Hi Dinger - and how am I going to criticise the BOD? Travel over 3 hours to dress up as a tea lady, sneak past security, burst through into CF’s office and have a go? I want them to get on with it, do the review, talk to whoever they have to talk to and then issue a RNS to tell us what’s going on. What I don’t need is people posting on here telling me I’m going to lose all my money, I’m an idiot and insinuating how clever they are. If we were all in a room together do you think they would go up to strangers and say all that face to face? I’d love it if they did bec they wouldn’t look clever - they’d just look spiteful and mean and actually a bit weird - I mean who would do that?

Unbelievable how this quote applies to so many posters on here that hang around this board and hope SIrius fails, especially on mornings like this morning. You lot are the sad ones, not the genuine investors
I have to admit Scootaboy’s first posts were very like SL- but I just can’t imagine him admitting to voting Remain after all the many discussions we had. But as you say Sheps I do tend to take everything at face value which I suppose sometimes doesn’t lend itself very well on here!
