Evil Cabal

The Telegraph reports that Vlad The Impaler’s castle, aka Castle Dracula, is up for sale for $40m.

I’ll be setting up a Paypal donation site entitled “Please Help Fund The Refurbishment Of Our Fortress Of Evil,” with the aim of turning the castle into a techno-base for my criminal cabal. With the psychic emanations of Vlad on our side we’ll become a kind of National Trust*-meets-S.P.E.C.T.R.E. – a secret organisation of international fascists, bent on hardcore architectural preservation, mandatory heritage-appreciation, and occasional world domination.

*The National Trust slogan “for ever, for everyone” has a vaguely Orwellian tone to it.

    What’s the upkeep on a castle of this magnitude? I heard Colditz went up for sale for a measly price – perhaps $1 – but had no takers.
    I suppose your clan of appreciative ne’erdowells would require a significant salary hike in order to maintain Vlad’s pad in working order. Best ask before purchase, eh?

    We would use indentured political slaves to keep things economical and environmentally friendly.

    Bagsy the ritual chamber in the tower.
