Having watched this series of the apprentice every week I have noticed major fualts with the majority of the candidates chosen this year and I wonder how they made it past the auditioning process.  I feel they may have been chosen more for thier entertainment factor rather than thier business prowess.  Frequently they would either lie or completely make up facts about products in order to get sales, they would badger people and blag thier way through the tasks with no actual management potential.  On an operational level they dont have many problems, but as task leaders they always seem to struggle and some of them even panic like a rabbit caught in the headlights.

Even at the start of todays episode, one of the candidates had a title of “unemployed head of somethingorother” what on earth does that mean, if you were head of some department then thats one thing, you’re either head of that department or you’re unemployed, former head of whatever would be acceptable, and why were you now unemployed were you that poor at the job, how long were you in that job, possibly a day trial knowing the blag factor of these candidates.

I would find it suprising if any of these people would ever make the draft if it wasn’t for this program, selling by any means neccissary including lying and cheating isn’t right wheres thier corporate/business responsibility.  If I was task manager on these candidates I would have had words long ago on the way they act.  And with some of thier idea’s they come up with someone needs to have the courage to point out the ridiculousely useless ones, it doesn’t take a genious to spot how bad some of these are.  You could forgive a week or two of bad idea’s but almost every week things have been poor, okay so some weeks it was obvious which team was going to win with the poor idea and the good idea, but this week I would say both were bad from the outset.  The tagline for the octo-kleen was stupid, I mean because 8 hands are better than 2 what on earth has that got to do with anything, and its completely meaningless bumph, at least the germ o nator had a viral aspect, just the excecution of it was pulled off poorly.  They could have either focused more on the germ destruction aspects of the product, or had a similar video with something like dirt o nator as the name as it would be a cleaning of deeply dirty products, and replace the boy with a weak nerdy student and that would have worked good.

Of course I would have said the octo-Kleen product should have been the losing product personally as its meaningless tagline and alienating the core market should have definately lost the task for them, I guess lord alan believed the main flaw with the other team was that it included a young boy on the product which was against the whole “keep away from children” tag and deemed it dangerous.

Well… the tv licence… what can I say… luckily I live with people who pay for the licence for the house, so I dont have to pay :-)

But I mean come on if youre not going to watch the channel you still have to pay for it just to watch any other channel, imagine you have to pay for a sky subscription even tho you dont actually watch the thing. Wheres the difference there? The technology exists where you can encode the channel so that you have to have a special decoder card to recieve specific channels which arent free, so why should the bbc be in such a state that you have to pay for it to watch other channels?

Imagine supermarkets giving you brussel sprouts, you can take as many as you like but you have to pay £20 to enter the supermarket to purchase other items, but the brussels are free for you to take, but you cant enter without paying for them. The bbc is working in the same way, not exactly the best method.

What do they do with all of these fees anyway? they spend it however the hell they like, making little pointless before show ditties of circles to show some sort of pointless thing. And there is the odd show I would watch, like heroes, but hey thats already been on nbc and Id rather pay for that channel, watch it when it first comes out and have some better shows on there as well

And what is the reason they dont make it so that you have to have a special decoder or reciever to get the bbc channels? because they get away with not having to, its the law to have to pay for them forcing it upon you, how legal is that really? If you dont want it and you want to watch other channels (which are paid for by adverts) surely it should be perfectly legal not to pay and to just not have the bbc channels… when will that day come? surely soon, theres only so long they can do this which in my minds isnt too legal, being forced to pay for a channel which if it wasnt free the majority of the people wouldnt actually have!
