Was Lee the right person for Sir Alan Sugar to hire as his new Apprentice?

I thought he was the best overall but am unsure whether the discovery that he'd lied on his CV should have ruled him out of consideration.

What do you think?

Ian.

Lying in 'business' is par for the course isn't it? 'The cheque is in the post.'. 'We'll call you right back.' 'Sorry he/she is out of the office at the moment.' Rolling Eyes

I wouldn't have employed any of them. They are all a bunch of ego maniacs who think they are much better than they actually are.

Sir Alan Sugar saying it doesn't matter lying on your CV. I think he's got a point if you are at a certain age and putting down false Exam results. Who would want to work for Alan Sugar as at the end of the day most leave after the time is up, and he hires another person for the next series. You can only do so many similar shows. Maybe time for a different format?

I was thinking he would have offered both of the finalists a job as he's got plenty of money?

He's hardly the most successful businessman of our times. At Tottenham he was a foul mouthed bully.

You only need to ask Terry Venables.

He's done a damned sight better than many, though. And since his company snapped up the Sky decoder contract he's done pretty well out of it too.

That aside, I'm pleased to able to announce that I've seen not a single second of any of these series and as such I haven't a clue what everyone is n about. What I can work out is that it gives other BBC media outlets plenty of "non-news" to report on.
