CAN MONEY BUY HAPPINESS?

Throughout my life as an active villain, my first priority was to have money, and when I say money, I mean plenty of it. In my opinion, money is a very powerful thing.  It can enable you to have practically anything you desire. Some people say that money cannot buy love or bring happiness, but my answer to that is, ‘give me a couple of million and I will show you just how happy it can make you.’

DOES CRIME PAY?

I am always being asked if crime pays.  Well, that is easy to sum up, isn’t it?

Take a look at all the old gangsters, for instance, The Great Train Robbers; poor bastards!  Most of them ended up serving 30 years in prison and came out penniless.  Next, take Frankie Frazer and Charles Bronson; they have wasted most of their lives behind bars.  Then finally, there’s The Krays; they got sent down when they were young men in their prime; they were caged up for over 30 years and came out in a box...dead!  Obviously, crime did not pay for most of these guys.  Time and again you will hear the same old reasons or excuses, the ‘what ifs...’ and the ‘but only’...  Maybe it could have paid for all of these old villains but, they were all careless or made major mistakes somewhere along the line, as we all do sometimes.
