Epic troll James Gubb shows Guptas the middle-finger (JSE shoots the messenger)
In a series of trades of the Oakbay stock, he has produced a graph that literally gives the Gupta family the middle finger. The Financial Services Board (FSB) hasn’t appreciated Gubb’s combination of art and mathematical genius. Nor has it joined the dots. Instead, it has levied a hefty R100k fine on James Gubb. Others, meanwhile, who have genuinely benefited from insider trading and foreign currency plays go unpunished.Jackie Cameron

Many South Africans are clamouring to give that man a Bells.
The JSE and the Financial Services Board, however, are not amused.
They’ve fined him a whopping R100 000 for his clever protest art.
