… or rather, we entertained Charles Peattie and Russell Taylor, Alex’s creators.
Or rather, they entertained us …
It was an enthralling evening and a walk down memory lane for some of us, as Alex is 25 years old!
He started with mobile telephones the size of bricks and now has a middle-aged spread and technology that means he sits with a blackberry on the beach doing deals …
Alex is full of bad habits and vices, but has one redeeming feature.
Russell and Charles made it clear that Alex always does the opposite of what we would do.
He’s always looking at the wealth side of life.
All in all, a wonderfully entertaining and fun evening, and here’s to the next one on October 9th, which is a debate about Do Banks Need Branches with Brett King, Mark Mullen (CEO of First Direct) and Anthony Thomson (Chairman of Metro Bank).
