Every house I ever bought, right up until 2008. For anyone of my generation who invested in something large that will double, triple or maybe quadruple its value in the next few years, that’s not going to be down to the stock exchange but your house."
"Have you ever been ripped off?
Yes, a thousand times! The harshest example is being a customer of a high-street bank with every transaction that I’ve ever made, once banks decided to turn themselves into such extraordinary money-generating businesses for their shareholders. We are all systematically and disgracefully ripped off."
"What’s been your best financial move?
Without any doubt, it was deciding to build up a large pension, which was a huge boon. It meant I’m protected to some extent for the rest of my life, though not as much as I thought I’d be. Unless the world implodes, I’m not going to starve."
A tad confused is dear old Baldrick.
