I haven`t posted on here since election day, and I see many posts pondering my whereabouts, accusing me of running away. Here`s my post from election night 2016;

timbuctooth 09 Nov 16 08:40
Clinton concedes.
Never in doubt.
When it comes to late nights, I don`t think I`ve ever been accused of being a lightweight, GB2, I`ve been here all night! You might know I`m an Indie bookie, with a large part of my life determined by luck. It`s not a big step from `luck` to `superstition`, and if I find something is `working`, I stick with it. As such, when I was posting earlier, I noticed that every time I posted, events turned against me; as soon as I`d stop posting, things improved. So, I didn`t want to bok anything by posting, even ignoring Tom`s enquiries into my whereabouts. Sorry, Tom, but I just couldn`t risk posting.
Well done all winners, but now it`s bedtime. Good night.



So, as you can see, I have form for not posting about any result until it`s actually over. 2020 is now officially over, so I won`t be bokking anything by posting, and it`s time for the truth to be established, once and for all.

In my absence, a number of posters have repeatedly lied about me, with pp being the main culprit. Some of you may recall that, pre-election, on numerous occasions I had asked these posters to stop their lying, to stop asserting that I had lost in the `dem nom` market, and that I offered up a challenge to any of the liars; if I produced PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE that they were lying, they would leave the forum forever  and, if I couldn`t produce PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE, I would leave. None of them were brave or confident enough to take me up on it, with pp hiding behind the coward`s cloak of having blocked me, pretending he couldn`t see my challenge, and edy being particularly weaselly about it.
pp even resorted to stalking me on the `Specials` forum, being his usual unpleasant self, but he was sharply hounded off by my fellow posters, who`ve known me long enough to know I was telling the truth, he was lying.

The original lies referred only to the `dem nom` market, but pp has since extended the lies, to include the `POTUS` market as well, which he has bored everyone with, by repeatedly posting his lies.

Here`s the PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE that, contrary to pp`s lies, I did not lose on both markets, I wasn`t `wiped out` as he has gleefully, maliciously and erroneously, posted frequently, I won. On both.

(I`m not a techie, had assumed the clips would play one after the other, but seems not, you have to go back each time to get the next one. The first four are `POTUS`, the last three `dem nom`)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq1E1UhR29p65vk2bkVmuaQ

As posted at the time, both clients and friends have seen these lies, they have real-life consequences, so it`s imperative that the world knows pp has been lying all the time, while I was telling the truth; as such, not wanting anybody to be left with the wrong impression, wanting to reach every single person who might have read pp`s lies, I shall be posting this on numerous threads.

No explanation offered for deposit not being in account
Money returned after Guardian asked for investigation


Betfair has apologised to one of its customers after he was left out of pocket for many weeks when an attempted deposit of nearly £100,000 to place bets on the US election in November was taken from his bank but did not credit to his account.

The customer, a long-standing account holder with the betting exchange who lives in Ireland and bets mainly on horse racing and sport, arranged the transfer of €110,000 (£98,000) a week before the election on 3 November, having confirmed with Betfair’s customer service department that there were no limits on the amount he could deposit and that the deposit would be accepted. He also fulfilled all of the firm’s “KYC” – Know Your Customer – requirements.

When the credit failed to appear on his account statement, he became increasingly concerned that his money had effectively vanished, but despite numerous daily contacts with Betfair’s customer service department, no one could tell him where it had gone.

His frustration increased as the election came and went with the money still missing from his exchange account. He then asked Betfair to return the money to the same bank account from which it had been transferred but again, despite “multiple requests and inquiries” to Betfair’s customer relations and escalations departments, the money remained somewhere in the exchange’s coffers.
Betfair’s market on the US election was the biggest in the exchange’s history, with around £500m matched on the outcome. Several weeks after it was finally settled, however, and more than 10 weeks after the customer attempted to make his deposit, his £100,000 was still missing. The money was finally returned to his account on Thursday, a few hours after the Guardian asked Betfair to investigate its whereabouts and the delay in returning it.

In an email to inform him of the transfer, a Betfair representative apologised for the “inconvenience brought about the delay”. The company declined to offer any further comment when contacted on Friday about the case.

Former President Donald Trump's five impeachment defense attorneys have left a little more than a week before his trial is set to begin, according to people familiar with the case, amid a disagreement over his legal strategy.

It was a dramatic development in the second impeachment trial for Trump, who has struggled to find lawyers willing to take his case. And now, with legal briefs due next week and a trial set to begin only days later, Trump is clinging to his election fraud charade and suddenly finds himself without legal representation.

Butch Bowers and Deborah Barbier, who were expected to be two of the lead attorneys, are no longer on the team. A source familiar with the changes said it was a mutual decision for both to leave the legal team. As the lead attorney, Bowers assembled the team.

Former President Donald J. Trump and the Republican Party entered this year having stockpiled more than $175 million from fund-raising in November and December based on his false claims of voter fraud, spending only a tiny fraction on lawyers and bills for his effort to overturn the presidential election, according to new campaign finance reports filed on Sunday night.

The picture that emerges in the new Federal Election Commission reports is of Mr. Trump mounting a furious public relations effort to spread the lie and keep generating money from it, rather than making a sustained legal push to try to support his conspiracy theories.

His campaign’s single biggest expense in December was a nearly $5 million media buy paid to the firm that bought his television advertisements. His second-largest payment, $4.4 million, was for online advertising. And the Republican National Committee pocketed millions of dollars in donations — collecting 25 cents for every dollar Mr. Trump raised online — in the final weeks of the year as it spent relatively little on legal costs.

He may have a lot on his plate as he advises his seventh US president, but the infectious diseases expert Anthony Fauci has a reason to celebrate - he has been awarded a $1m (£717,000) Israeli prize for his commitment to science.

Dr Fauci, who was often at odds with former President Trump over how to handle the pandemic, is the winner of the Dan David Prize for "defending science".

He was also praised for being an advocate for Covid vaccines, and for his leadership on HIV research and Aids relief.

He is recognised for "courageously defending science in the face of uninformed opposition during the challenging Covid crisis", the awards committee says.

Thoroughly Deserved!

The markets aren't exactly the same, word for word, but there are some massive price differences in the market concerning the first international visit of Joe Biden. Smarkets go 1.27/1.5 UK, Paddies go 2.0.  Smarkets go 4.2 Ireland, Paddies go 6.5. Biden already committed to coming to UK for G7 summit, wouldn't surprise me if he stopped off in Ireland en route.

Paddies prices are also on Betfair Sportsbook.
