Comments on: “The Apprentice” candidates not worth very much http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/04/29/the-apprentice-candidates-not-worth-very-much/ Insights from the UK and beyond Tue, 15 Nov 2016 20:30:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Dave O'Carroll http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/04/29/the-apprentice-candidates-not-worth-very-much/comment-page-1/#comment-8588 Thu, 30 Apr 2009 15:21:49 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/?p=2495#comment-8588 Ben you’ve got to just love him haven’t you, time after time managing to dispel any confusion between his age and/or IQ. God knows what the selection board at Sandhurst must have thought of the bunch of no-hopers presented to them in which Ben was the stand out applicant. Another case of those damned positive discrimination doctrines in choosing the ‘best’ rather than ‘the best’ perhaps?

A couple of crackers by Sir Al, notable of which was the village missing an idiot sketch, viewers helped out no-end with Sir Alan adding James’ name to clarify which idiot he was referring too.

One of the highlights of this particular series is the token good looking blond bimbo being neither token or bimbo. Clarification of her blondness might sadly needing the aye or nay of a certain Yorkshire apprentice, no one can doubt the levels of competance shown regardless of which motley group she’s placed with.

Can’t wait for next week’s episode.

Will we see Deborah, the strangely attractive one, summon up the brainpower and vitriol to finally put Sir Alan in his place…….

BTW Deborah if your reading this – it’s at the top of the table and on top of his game.

Any young and genuinely succesful business person would not be lured out of their position by a, relatively speaking, small salary and low level job. Consider that the best business leaders will be earning well in excess of £100,000 and will no doubt want to build their own company/empire, not simply serve Sir Allan Sugar.

By the way, Ben Clarke got the scholarship to Sandhurst, but never actually went!!! He is talking nonsense.

Admittedly, it is great TV, but if they really are the best candidates, then heaven help Britain in the future.
To be honest, i am frankly amazed at how stupid the vast majority of them, actually are!
