No. 3351 - Balthazar Fabricius: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

20 questions with Balthazar Fabricius, founder of sports betting company Fitzdares

 

The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom”. What’s your guiding force?

The weather.

 

“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

“Learn to sing. It’s impossible to be angry and sing at the same time”.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2013?

“A north wind brings stormy weather, and a gossipy tongue stormy looks” (Proverbs 25:23, MSG).

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

The Sopranos.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

The guarantee of a safe future environment for my children’s children and beyond.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the banking crisis?

There has been no industry that has lost more money consistently than the bankers.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“I presumed that…” Never presume anything.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

I have recently boxed for charity, helping to raise £200,000 for Starlight. I raised a further £20,000 for five good causes: Prostate Cancer UK, British Heart Foundation, The Ecology Trust, Charlie’s Challenge and Richard House.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

They should be turned off for all meals with friends and family. Otherwise, they are totally acceptable and any establishment worth their salt should have free WiFi.
