I see your chum Hugh Golder is taking Fred’s place as chairman. Heaven knows how he’ll find the time to spend with you. Fancy a round of golf at the weekend?

I wouldn’t have minded if you’d told me you were married when we met in Spain – and as for that ridiculous “important client turning up” story – you must think I’m daft or something. Enjoyed the races but I’m back to Murcia at the weekend, so goodbye.

The money is flowing in to my Value Driven fund so I need to start spending some of it. Sainsbury is running well, but your LSE punt doesn’t look too good. How about going back into mining stocks?

Not sure when the FT interview is coming out, but it didn’t go that well. Can’t say Stephen is a natural communicator. Fancy being interviewed by Money Marketing?

Subject: More publicity

How did your piece with the FT go? Any objections if I give an interview to Money Marketing? My funds are really flying at the moment and with the support IFAs are giving us this is just the type of publicity we need.

I’ve had the chairman on the phone demanding a meeting. Apparently, the board has received a bid approach but he wouldn’t say who from. How are you fixed tomorrow?
