Brexit Wars 3 macbonzo: I’m surprised you think so. It really sounds something a number of Brexiteers claimed would happen before the first Brexit deadline. The EU didn’t budge an inch. Well, the difficult part of the Tory (May) Deal was still to be negotiated… we only had the WA… and then a 24-page list of things to be negotiated. One of the main issues was that May stuck to her red lines… and the EU stuck to theirs. Without compromise on things like the Irish border then it was always going to be tricky. However… if you get a PM who is up for a customs arrangement… that avoids the whole Irish border issue.
Brexit Wars 3 I’m surprised you think so. It really sounds something a number of Brexiteers claimed would happen before the first Brexit deadline. The EU didn’t budge an inch. Insofar as no other member state is making any noises about leaving, I think the EU, need to make an example of the EU. It’s nothing to do with money.

Brexit Wars 3 oilovlam: Don’t forget that JW has the chance of a ‘No’ deal (WTO deal) as zero % (unless he’s about to revise his odds)… You’re right, the odds on No Deal will increase. Let’s first see who the real runners are for PM. They may pull off a surprise. Boris’s plan will be key to what support he gets within the Tory Party and they aren’t all going to like a plan that is to run down the clock without a majority of the House supporting it. You are right that it becomes more precarious now without the May Deal as the provisions inserted into the EU Withdrawal Act will no longer apply (you would assume depending on who gets in as PM). So there’s no longer a need for an MV3… or MV4 etc… they are now dead. If such a new PM (say Boris) strictly enforced just running down the clock and not giving anyone else time in the House… then I suspect that very quickly almost 1/2 of the Tories will not like that… plus almost the whole rest of the House. Ultimately, a PM who forced that through would then be another zombie PM with no backing to do anything else ever again following that… they would be a one-shot PM. However, it most likely wouldn’t even get to that point as Parliament realising what is about to happen can quickly hold a no-confidence vote in the government… and provided that there is enough support from Tory MPs for opposition parties to win such a vote (and there would be in that scenario) then another Government would be formed. It could be an ‘exciting’ few months between July and end of October after the waste of time over the last year with f*ck all happening. Like I said, the scenario I fear more is a Tory PM promoting a Deal that will also gain the support of a large number of Labour MPs… that would be almost impossible to stop.
Suggestions For Questions at the AGM on Wed 5th June 2019 Pretty well every shareholder in every oil company I’ve ever invested in has assumed that a takeover bid/deal is just around the corner, just waiting for……… It hasn’t happened yet.
California Fozz, post if you have something of import to say. By the way I AM a long term holder with over 11.6 million shares so it is hugely important to me what the outcome is.
Suggestions For Questions at the AGM on Wed 5th June 2019 carliol: But this begs the question, what generates the electric to power the E Cars? Hot air from politicians (party agnostic) - there’s a infinite supply.
California It’s all good Gordon, it’s a beautiful life. I think like many I’m very frustrated that my cash has been tied up here and I do feel somewhat misled by the company and in particular Zaza. Fwiw, I don’t see Hope getting B12. Big showdown next Weds, I’ll make you a deal. I promise not to post till then. I wish you well.

Suggestions For Questions at the AGM on Wed 5th June 2019 Hello Floss, You’ve made some interesting comments on whether or not a deal is on the back burner as we await confirmation of first oil from Lancaster and the result of the Warwick Deep drill. I’m sure Hurricane and a possible take over company will have much more information about what’s currently happening behind the scenes than us private investors. In the highly likely event of a major such as B P making a bid I’m sure it will be for the company, lock, stock and barrel. Perhaps a joint bid from B P and Shell is a possibility. In any event I don’t think a major would want to be sharing the Hurricane naturally fractured basement reservoirs West of Shetland with a company such as Hurricane. What is a possibility if a take over of Hurricane is successful, is that the Hurricane staff who are acknowledged experts in n f b r would be retained by the predator with the sole intention of them focusing on exploring, appraising and developing Hurricane’s current oil fields W of S. There’s always the possibility of a first mover hostile bid. There have been some recent successful take overs on the UKCS. Perhaps Jim Ratcliffe of Ineos might be interested in making a first mover bid. Given all the troubles in the oil producing regions of the planet there must be many companies who would like to have a presence on the UKCS. Also I don’t think electric cars will pose much of a threat to the ICE in the foreseeable future. There needs to be a break through in battery technology before electric cars take over. But this begs the question, what generates the electric to power the E Cars? Carliol
Brexit Wars 3 Grow up and stop throwing unfounded tariffs on products. We can leave with Gatt 24 on WTO. Both sides will benefit.
Brexit Wars 3 Eadwig: No doubt time will tell which of us is correct. Don’t forget that JW has the chance of a ‘No’ deal (WTO deal) as zero % (unless he’s about to revise his odds)… The question is if Parliament votes for another extension on 31st October can BoJo ignore that request?! If he ignores Parliament to run down the clock then we leave on 31st October regardless of what the EU want (BoJo has said that he wont extend Brexit again). If Parliament were then to vote to Revoke A50 could BoJo ignore that too? (Revocation isn’t guaranteed IMO…even if it looks like BoJo is crashing us out) To me it all seems to be heading towards a ‘No’ deal on 31st October…hopefully I’m wrong and the dynamics will change. Perhaps Trump will tell us what to do when he arrives in June for his jolly
California When I was a schoolboy many many years ago one of my teachers told me I had verbal diarrhoea. I was quite proud at the time. I did start to feel alone later tho as nobody else seemed to have the same attribute. I don’t feel alone any more thanks to you Fozzer. More seriously though, it is amazing how in a matter of a few hours you can go from doom and gloom to ecstatic positivity and back again. It is a shame because sometimes you have something very useful to say but it gets flooded by the sheer volume of your posts. You suggested to gotreal to just skip your posts but I would be worried I might miss something of value if I took that advice. I do enjoy reading posts from a number of people on this board such as Devex, TOT and Symore Bottom (and others). The interesting thing is that they are NOT prolific posters but their posts are ALWAYS worth reading. Calm down, slow down and concentrate on the value that you can definitely bring.
LLOY - Share buyback 2019 Another week of the buyback has gone by, and 28.1% of the funds have been used now. The average price paid to date is 62.87p, and the remaining funds would buy a further 2bn shares at that price, which would take us down to 69.2bn, provided no further new shares are issued in the interim. Today was the 17th day where ~£8.3m has been spent. The rate at which the buyback funds are being used is lower than in the 2018 buyback (as a percentage of the sum to be used) so it looks like it will take longer to deplete the funds unless the daily use is ramped up.
Brexit Wars 3 macca45: Chris Heaton-Harris MP the man put in charge of ptreparationd for us leaving stated so in March So that makes it so, does it? 20% on Steel to the EU, we’ve seen British Steel’s preparations for that. 10% on cars manufactured in the UK, we know what will happen there, most are made for sale in the EU. What does your great man have to say about that. Amazed you can remember his name, to be honest. Or are you just working off your trolling cheat sheet?
