Lord Sweety is not amused
by Monk 16 June 2011
Alan Sugar gave his “apprentices” the task of editing two magazines, one tasteless, lad-mag with the by-line, “How do you blow your LOAD?” And another condescending magazine aimed at the elderly, named “Hip Replacement”, with “ironic” wit according to the young contestants who thought of that name.
Alan Sugar was apparently not impressed with either magazine and pointedly found the characterisation of the elderly, condescending. The magazine included an article with advice for the elderly on how the elderly may operate a telephone.
So much for the law of the land which says that employers should not discriminate on the grounds of age, when all of the contestants look like a desperate database for a 20 something dodgy dating agency.
I am left wondering if anyone over fifty applied to be on this show, and why there is not a more representative mix of appropriate candidates.
We Monk’s have both therefore decided to apply to enter for the next series of The Apprentice.
We will let you know how we get on.
Sugar is no sweety and something of a bully. He likes to humiliate the contestants but he is also a greedy capitalist, that will be delighted with the cash he made telling lads how to blow their LOAD. This tells us nothing new about Lord Sugar, but what does it tell us about the BBC?
