Oh well Mr Trumpet I take note of your overwhelming tone in conversation albeit a tik tak chat forum "affraid and concerned" ohh all you need now is a little panic before you see your life-time pension all five figures slip through your hands.
The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs aren't going to give "INFA" the renewed "mineral & marine" licence in a hurry. In my most humble of opinions - INFA will be lucky to recieve such notification any time soon if at all this year.
Making "INFA" extremely over valued "again - in my most humble of opinions" valued at just a tad over £7m for a few plots of land, on land and loch with no go ahead permission to operate and a hoard of protesters banging at their door.
Watch out for my humongous order when the price drops sub 0.35
Yes, still here - trolling through what some muppets have to say same old S**T day in day out
Pending Court Case (Arb.) - that's where I see the value to oilex (as you all already know)
a) potential upside if successful......mega
b) potential downside.....loose your investment or sell short
Courts never rush things if any of you are old enough you should know this already, impatience will only make you bald! Joe can't report anything if there's nothing to report...due to slow court processes.
Found some interesting reads (in house material)
Don't be silly "WGR"
Of course the bosses have a role to play they can insist on change. However you are sort of correct it is about the customers as they are who the bosses need to listen too in order to consider change. In order to listen to the customers the bosses need to listen to their staff who have first hand experience of dealing with customers views either "good or negative"

I love the fact that some posters on here do keep that eliment of reality. People of forget the Ying & Yang of the business world. I currently sit on the board of two (private) UK companies.
I was brought up in the world of retail, really ****es me of when I look at the board and business of M & S (sorry to side track) they "can't see the wood for the trees" . I worked for them for a brief period "to many chiefs and not enough Indians" Never listened to a single word I had to say, so I resigned. I could really change that company into something ready for the future. Basically...
Clothing and Home: ****e clothes, ****e quality...and customers don't like being taken for a ride ! You don't need a genious to change things - Just someone with good insight (soory for the rant guys'n girlz)
Hi there again,
Ian.B, I will apologise on my recent view with regards to who the cards would appeal too. I stumbled upon this adverrt whilst looking at news on MSN
I can now fully understand the appeal the cards would have for Company and its staff . The old way was/ is reasonably unfair when a comapny expects employees to paid for items and claim back via monthly expences etc.. The pre-paid cards ofter that level of fairness for both parties.
(the link below is for a pre-paid card [not ours sad to say], but give great insight)
Could you imagine the faces of the top executives if they told their wifes or husbands, due to their high position that they (the wives or husbands) had to wear M & S clothing from head to foot. LOL
Could see a few headline divorces!
I'm a fairly new shareholder (topped up again last week) I don't say much because you guys have a great eye on things. I believe we will get somewhere over the rainbow, it will just take a little bit longer. I'm prepared to top up, sit back and enjoy reading all your posts.
Great to see the negative along with the positive allows new comers to weigh up their odds, before jumping in. Keep up the good work :-)
Hello again Ian.B
When mentioning the pre-paid cards yesterday, I was speaking through experience. Many many years ago I had very bad credit rating and I wouldn't have been surprised if I had a Credit rating at all. I had a pre-paid card and paid a monthly charge. I used the card for a few months because all I needed it for was to buy online, I used my debit card for on-land purchases. The only other reason I may have needed a pre-paid card would have been for travel reasons.
Look to yourself, and ask yourself why would I (Ian.B) need a pre-paid card? When you have debit or credit card in your pocket.
Pre-paid cards "do not " offer a line of credit as they are "pre-paid" so they only offer an option of use. Most people these days via government ruling are allowed the basic bank account all of which come with a debit card, which also don't come with a line of credit so debit card holder will often get refused say at the shop checkout if trying to pay for goods if monies are not available on their account.
Companies can dress the card up to shine like a diamond but reality is the market is limited and as mentioned before mainly for those with poor credit or traveling. If you travel for 3 weeks then you have a mode of payment, why would you need the card at a monthly charge for the rest of the year after you return from your travels? I personally would if in that situation ditch the card until my next travel abroad (if I didn't have credit card)
I cant understand wht a company would pay your wages onto this card when you could have a bank account with debit card.
I have share in the company so hope we ALL do well. "All in my humble opinion" GLA
Ian.B - Interesting concept these pre-paid cards. Not sure they will achieve targets so quickly.
1) Prepaid cards all ready exsist
2) Users of pre-paid cards are usually people with poor credit rating and find it difficult to get credit so therefore can't use anything that requires "Sole use" a credit card - such as internet shopping.
3) For purchases in cafe's or shops people can use a "debit card"
4) Some pre-paid cards are usefull when travelling (post office have one) - STILL only really applies to those with poor credit
Will be interesting to see how this spans out over time. I am optimistic about there targets. Again IMHO, I believe they will be lucky to issue 5k card in one year. (Why would someone need a pre-paid card if they have a debit card)
Let's wait and see GLA
p.s. membership card charges range from £3 - 5 per card - it's not set in stone £5 per card
