Fillipe Ricchi: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

The Steeple Times asks The Palm’s barman Fillipe Ricchi: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

 

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

“Happiness and success”.

 

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

“Trust yourself”.

 

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

Racism.

 

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

I don’t miss anything. I’m very, very lucky.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

I’d love to open a business. I’d love to open a bar.

 

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?

Banks are not very trusting.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“Don’t”.

 

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

It’s good to support charity but too many people do it for themselves rather than for whom it will benefit.

 

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 are very important but when I was young no one had one. Now everyone has one, it isn’t good.
