Edward Thomson: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

The Steeple Times asks estate agent Edward Thomson: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

 

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

Honesty and integrity.

 

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

My favourite is: “What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger” but “Try everything once, except incest and Morris dancing” is more amusing.

 

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

Mexicans using live dogs and kittens as shark bait.

 

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

Living in the countryside and most of the time, a river and a dog.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

The love of my life.

 

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?

My integrity and reputation is all that I am; all that I can absolutely determine. When you give that up what have you become? The banks no longer have a code. A few prison sentences ought to remind them to gamble their money, not ours.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“It’s not my problem”:  I absolutely hate the mentality of people who say this.

 

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

Family and friends first and then animal welfare. In particular, beasts of burden across the world.

 

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?

Mobile phones are anti-social, but absolutely necessary in today’s world.

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

Bill Murray, Ranulph Fiennes, that chap who just survived 40 minutes at depth in the North Sea with 20 minutes of mix (seriously interesting chat to be had there I think), Johnny Cash and oh yes, a seriously amazing and beautiful Australian I know.

 

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

Potted shrimp on toast, lamb cutlets and some very good Stilton. I would have it on the banks of the River Nadder near Salisbury.

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

12 noon. Sherry.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

Definitely a cocktail. A Porn Star martini is my current favourite.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

Any that end up in Annabel’s. Call me old hat, but I just love the dance floor in there.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

My stepfather, Richard.  An extraordinary chap.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

Smoking. I have to stop again soon.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

A rod and a rifle.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

My Triumph TR6. My dream car is a 1949 Ferrari 166MM Barchetta.

 

Cilla Black presented Surprise, Surprise. Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

I like crooning to old Fred Astaire songs in the shower.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

A carriage clock, two candlesticks, a picture of me releasing a salmon, a wedding invitation and a Herend porcelain rabbit.
