Peter Cullum is climbing up the rich list.

The poor serfs toiling under-rewarded in the ranks of insurance – take heart.

This year’s Sunday Times Rich List, published at the weekend, was a shining beacon, a light at the end of the tunnel.

The country’s most famous insurance entrepreneur, Towergate executive chairman Peter Cullum, was number 40 on the list, with a staggering personal wealth of £1.7bn.

That’s more than five times as much as Madonna.

It got Backchat wondering what you could buy with that sort of money.

Norwich City, perhaps (or has Delia already done that)? RBSI..?
