'The Apprentice' is a TV programme in which one rich business man works his way through a bunch of applicants looking for a job. He is famed for his shoddy Amstrad products, his support for the Labour Party and his move, under Labour, into the House of Lords. The screen offers us a hyped up badly presented shower of TV wannabees desperate to become famous through this programme. I should mention I have the sound off as I have no wish to hear what is said. Sharp suited, slick, self possessed, male wastes of space are joined by over painted hussy's on the make. The last winner of this drivel claimed she was given a non-job by Lord Sugar, the hero of the programme, and took him to court in a bid to claim money. She lost! What does it say about her that the court believed him instead of her? Television today panders to the small minded who adore such stuff. I just want to reach for a gun. Any NRA men out there.....?
Sir Alex Ferguson has stood down as commander of Manchester United. The media have responded with a frenzy of excitement details of his every victory in cup and league, his life, his temperament, his battles, his mind games and the vast number of players he has made use off.
All bar the fact he once managed in Scotland!
This I need not let you know fair scunners me!
His record with East Stirling, St Mirren and Aberdeen were ignored. So much so that a report claims that on Sky Sports a discussion re the man to take his place (David Moyes) included the comment,
"Moyes does not have European experience"
and received the answer,
"Neither had Ferguson when he arrived."
Aberdeen, his previous club, as you will know not only played many European matches they also under Fergie won the European Cup Winners Cup. Not that an English broadcasting company would know this.
'Dunderheid' is the word indeed!
