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

The revival of Mayfair as the best residential village of what is now called “Prime Central London” (PCL).

 

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

“Better as a friend than an enemy”.

 

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

Who is Kerry Katona?

 

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

Tony Blair. He was the best conservative that Labour ever had.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

Health and longevity.

 

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?

What banking crisis? For Mayfair, 2009 was a minor illness followed by renewed strength.
