Who said it: Ronnie Biggs or fugitive entrepreneur John McAfee?

Who said it: train robber and long-time fugitive Ronnie Biggs, or anti-virus software developer and fugitive John McAfee?

Infamous train-robber and lifelong rascal Ronnie Biggs has died. Biggs was famous for robbing a Royal Mail train in Buckinghamshire in 1963, and then escaping from Wandsworth prison using a rope ladder in 1965. He then spent the next 35 years on the run.

Meanwhile, John McAfee was working as a programmer for NASA between 1968 and 1970 before going on to work for a string of other high-profile companies. In 2012, he was called in for questioning by police in Belize, where he lived. One of his neighbours had been found killed. McAfee has since been evading the Belizean authorities.
