Tim Watts, CFO at Shield Therapeutics #STX presenting at our Life Sciences Investor Briefing Watch Now
Well said Radar - Have just been watching Question Time on the BBC from Southampton - until I couldn't watch it any more. The audience must be hand picked, they were almost unanimous in their support of Brexit and absolutely convinced that it has got to be delivered - WHY ?
The panel weren't much better - nobody conveyed a compelling reason for Brexit, they just followed what is left of the party line.
I am still waiting for someone to admit that the referendum was hi-jacked by BOJO who mounted his campaign on the lie that the UK's contribution to Europe was so large that it threatened the continuance of the NHS.
What has most threatened the NHS is the influx of administrators and bed managers etc who have systematically bled the NHS of scarce resources as they have relocated out of the various town halls they previously inhabited. To make matters worse, these administrators have presided over the establishment of agency staff being employed in almost every hospital at dangerously high cost.
G P's can collect £1,500 a night working in A & E while nurses are paid £400 a shift. At those rates why would anyone work a full week, when they can pick up so much working three or four nights a week. The situation here is no better really - I am well into my second year waiting to see a consultant cardiologist.
My doctor tells me that unless I make a private appointment I could be waiting another two years - he did however assure me that in the event of a serious problem "they would fix me" whatever that means.
By the way who is Steve Barclay - a banker ? - or just another Brexit secretary who will be gone as fast as all the others.
Brit Bashing indeed - what else can we say when confronting a herd mentality and DO NOT START ME ON WHO CAUSED THE FINANCIAL CRISIS, it is very easy to blame the Labour party BUT, they did not issue all those lovely credit cards with which so many people lined their wallets.
Time to go - good luck all...
When the last consolidation took place, our shares were allocated to us priced at @7.40 - how nice would it have been if they were worth that. For those amongst us who feel that they are serving a life sentence - we have been mugged and right royally several times now - talk about sharp practice.
The valuation placed on this share by the market makers should go down in history along with Boris's 350 MLn a day.
To cap it all - even though I have written to them and they know my new address I have still to receive MY DIVIDEND on my much devalued holding.
Tried my new course today - it is a beauty but hard work getting round because of quite steep hills and the fact that I was short on horse power today.
Good luck all.
How does this man keep going with a back full of arrows - he must realise by now that the game is over for him. Newsnight this evening was even less informative than usual so I switched to UTV. The View from Stormont was much more informative, explaining why an open border was just plain not workable because of the way some goods move through England on there way to the continent.
Tariffs would apply to goods leaving the Republic and would be levied at the port, drive up to the North where there are no checks and an open border and the goods simply sail out of Belfast.
The Incredible Hulk is a dead man walking in my estimation - looking at his most recent appearances it is beginning to really show that he knows it. Perhaps he should make Reese-Mogg his deputy and send him to Europe for the next meeting or at least take him with him for the experience - then they can both bow out together.
Our Dave has re-appeared in an interview broadcast tonight which shows how keen his publisher is to recover his advance from book sales. He was on independent tonight and will be on the BBC on Thursday - nothing like publicity to get a good book moving.
Posted earlier this evening - pressed the button and my post vanished - never mind we'll see what happens this time.
Good luck all.
Ball Hoppers and people who are generally irritating are most easily antagonised by being ignored and especially when they come from that blinkered section of that society who still live in the post war time warp.
In those days the UK had a standing army of 300,000, plus National Service recruits, a sizeable navy and air force as well as having the largest merchant fleet in the world.
Need I say more - the ship is taking in water - why else would the country be sold out from under its people. Just like the land clearances, people are being "cleansed" from the major cities like Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and London so that new developments can be sold mostly to foreign investors. The coastal towns with large letting capacities have been almost re-populated with people who have been displaced. Unfortunately they have not turned out to be of benefit to the towns in question because of educational deficiencies and an ill disciplined life style which is not receptive to further educational opportunities or training. In Torquay before I escaped, they were a blight on the town depriving it of its considerable amenity and ambiance as the smoke which cannabis and skunk produces wafted on the breeze.
They are a generation lost and neglected, the state gives them benefits and some sort of accommodation and leaves them largely to rot pretty largely - no wonder they have regressed.
This is stirring memories which are best left across the water, whilst I get on with living in this very pleasant part of County Down among people who just love to make you feel welcome - once they learn that you are not a visitor.
Good luck all.
I don't need a DNA test - but my daughter recently had one and it was established that she IS 99.6% thoroughbred, which was very re-assuring because I was away a lot.
Radar and Big Foot have said all there is to be said with regard to other remarks relating to heritage.
On a happier note - I found my new Gold Club today in Downpatrick - a superb parkland course which presents an excellent challenge and good availability.
Good luck all.
"The British Exchequer won't have enough to make pension payments and run its public services" - of course it will - you forget that the UK government prints its own money just like Zimbabwe.
The real question is - how much will the currency be worth when it comes to buying all those imported goods and cars.
Good luck all
You've said it PGee - Has to be the tower - all the other places are centrally heated with TV's in the cell. I like the idea of seeing him with the guttering candle chained to the wall in a cell that has bars instead of glass.
The utterances of our LTI only goes to prove what they always say in the West Country - "You cannot educate Pork"
Good luck all
Know that area well used to stay in the Valley Hotel with John and Sally Williamson - they still own the hotel but live most of the time in their Villa in Spain.
There's quite a pocket of "the brethren" around that area having crossed back into the province when Ireland shook off the shackles. Arlene loves it and spends a lot of her time eating free meals in the Killyhevlin Hotel or whatever they call the new hotel which replaced it after the fire. As the 'Final Solution' draws near she will have to decide how much she still likes it when she is working in Tesco's.
Good luck all - great day on the course today but its turned cooler here.
The toothless blond haired "lion" climb the steps of government buildings to shake hands with Leo. I suspect that he has finally discovered that politics is not like rugby it has a bit more to it than a scrum.
Leo's speech was measured and unwavering supported by the might of Europe, which hopefully he can rely on. Boris's expression while Leo was talking was so expressive, another few days and that should be that - end game.
Boris admits himself to the Priory following his resignation and admits that he eats Magic Mushrooms, leaving the new administration to sort out the mess that the last three years have created and he has made worse.
I still find it hard to believe what has happened over the last three years, England really is in a dreadful state when they have created a situation based on lies that will see them leave the richest club in the world whilst raising its flag amongst all those lovely but bankrupt African states.
The country's over-dependence on the City and its financial services is now coming home to roost while the high street dies.
Poor Old Albion the sun is setting fast on the empire.
Good luck all....
Never mind them the DUP have suddenly tasted mortality, a cold hand is taking hold of their vitals and their fine feathers are starting to fall out.
Change is coming which hopefully will be for the better.
Mr Mac - Now I like that proposal a lot - the sooner that the DUP are defenestrated the better, their default position is always NO.
Now that the dice is finally cast we will not proceed from here on the basis of the Status Quo. The democratic deficit that we have had to work with here has finally come home to roost in the UK due to the actions of the DUP and latterly of ERG. The situation here has enraged the people - no that is not too strong a word - Arlene announced this evening that she is not standing for re-election because I suspect that she is putting her house on the market with a view to moving south of the border. Can't see that solving her problem, she and her party have caught the Conservative disease, which causes them to forget all about their constituents and the problems and hardship that Brexit will bring to them.
Whilst I am not expecting an earthquake due to the demographics, change is coming starting with the DUP who are perceived by everyone to have done even less than Sinn Fein for their people over the last almost three years. Both party's will suffer at the hands of the electorate, it does not take that much of a swing to change the balance of power due to proportional representation.
I am beginning to feel hopeful that the change that I am expecting is starting to emerge.
We are blocked here by the mountain from receiving RTE TV - from yesterday our new mast now beams RTE 1 & 2. Is this part of the change ?
Good luck all
