The Apprentice

I’m just sitting here with the tv on, and the BBC keep playing a trailer for “The Apprentice”. They must have a new series starting.

I must admit I have always found the idea of The Apprentice totally abhorrent. The idea that everything just boils down to profit and loss just negates those other things in life which are, in themselves, valuable qualities. The only thing I find difficult about this programme is finding a suitably negative word to describe it.

I’m sure Alan Sugar must be nicer than the role he plays on the programme – you can’t possibly get by in life, let alone prosper, with such a negative attitude towards other human beings.
