I am not allowing BT to handle the shares in votes anymore I truly thought she had sold them all when the 02 shares had to be sold years ago.
I have a responsible person going this years AGM with proxy for the votes who will be asking questions. I am here to help not be attacked for owning shares that are not in my name but an 86 yr old women who just happens to be my mother. She thought sadly that the shares would be worth enough to pay for her funeral... Apparently that was the only reason she kept them few years back she could have sold them for over Ã‚Â£1,000 today they are worth nearer Ã‚Â£600.
There are many shareholders who due to financial reasons or health cannot make it to AGM's. That doesn't mean they are all bad and support Phorm my mother has no idea of what phorm can do she isn't IT literate and has never used a computer. She only had internet at her home 2 yrs ago when her son moved back in to help look after her with me.

I must wash my brain in distilled water for thinking such evil thoughts.
No Thanks for now the shares are just being used to try to stop phorm not sure if it wil work but might cause enough publiciuty to warn others about phorm and get people deciding to not opt-in.
BT have bought many shares for the treasury so looks like they trying to be sure if a large number of voting share holders vote against they have nearly as many shares in treasury.
