Eric Meier– What’s on your mantelpiece?

A 20-question interview with jetsetter Eric Meier

 

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

My intuition.

 

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

‘Forgive but don’t forget’.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2016?

Donald Trump and Crocs.

 

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

My sanity.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

World peace or never ageing.

 

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?

Invest. Banks are a joke.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

‘I need’ – Even though I use it every day and a lot.

 

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

Anything to do with children. Their innocence and honesty inspires me.

 

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?

My answer here is biased since I’m addicted to my phone. I think it’s actually glued to me.
