Robert Maxwell (1923 – 1991)

“The Bouncing Czech” was variously an MP, a spy and a media mogul. Before his empire collapsed he stated: “You are as safe with me as you would be in the Bank of England.” He was a notoriously bad tempered beast of a man and in death he remains as large and as colourful as he was alive. Various theories can be found on the internet about him being killed by Mossad, working in a fish and chip shop in Huddersfield and hanging out with Shergar the racehorse. Thankfully, instead, he’s safely been laid to rest on the Mount of Olives.
