The whole thing reads like a hatchet job on Arc actually, I wouldn't be surprised if part of it was written by Mushinge. It refers to NvS as simply Nic I find that a little strange. The rant against foreigners as predictable as it is also shows the bias in the reporting
I'd never heard of him but he has a fascinating history.
From Wikipedia (and there's a lot more than this )
"Cawkell was involved in exposing the fraud of Robert Maxwell's accounts, specifically those of Maxwell's company British Printing & Communication Corporation PLC later renamed Maxwell Communication Corporation PLC and subsequently dissolved on 20 February 2018.
Cawkwell did his first share trade in 1967 at the age of 21 and his first short position taken was M.F.I. in 1973 that collapsed from 150p to 10p. He also made £1 million on short-selling shares in Northern Rock, Polly Peck International and Amber Day before the bank, Amber Day and Pollypeck went into administration. His short selling activities were thought to have been curtailed somewhat by new 'Short-Selling Prohibition' disclosure rules in 2008 requiring notification if the short position covered more than 0.25% of a company's shares: This short selling ban expired in May 2020. Further short selling notification thresholds were announced in January 2021.
Simon Cawkwell used his analytical skills and called gold stocks well in the early 2000's. His reasoned analyses proved correct.
Cawkwell was listed amongst the 'World's Top Ten Most Famous Traders of All-time' in 2019 by IG.com"
