A MAN who nearly reached the top of the London property ladder is back at his parents’ after sliding down an enormous snake.
Property developer Martin Bishop had been climbing the ladder for a decade and he says if it wasn’t for the huge snake he could have bought Wembley stadium.
He said: “Ever since I was a kid, I dreamed of climbing the property ladder. Yep. I was a prick even when I was a kid.
“I bought a load of flats, kicked out the tenants and tarted them up for rich twats. But then this big snake appeared and instead of eating me, I slid right down it and wound back sleeping in my folks’ spare room.”
Bishop did a series of dodgy property deals with men who looked like extras from a Danny Dyer film, which he is also now blaming on the snake.
He added: “I suppose it’s like the old saying goes, ‘If you don’t want to see snakes, don’t hang about with property developers.’”
