Why all the questions about the brothers?

I think they are an intriguing pair.

Very successful in business but very secretive at the same time. There is only one photograph of them together. One is married to the "I'd like to teach the world to sing" Coca Cola girl and they have built the biggest castle to be built this centuary on a tiny island, which they are taking on the Queen over its sovereignty.

If you saw the castle in the flesh, I think you would be quite taken aback. Pretty awesome. Don't think Beckingham Palace; this construction is something else.

Maybe we could have the first ever Internet kidnap conspiracy - maybe it could be disguised as the annual BIBOA cruise???

They travel everywhere separately for security reasons, they are worth many millions and the constructors of the castle used an enormous Russian helicopter to transport all the building material to the island.
