What i never get is how they all claim to own these amazingly successful businesses, yet re willing to be laughed at and become virtually unemployable due to being morons on national TV.

They all look like a shower of shit. I can't wait.

TRaney - 28 Sep 2017 22:03:47 (#4 of 415)

Is this still going on?

Everything seems to have been around forever these days.

Very much this.

excellent. they look dreadful.

what always gets me is how they dont know London.

I appreciate theyre not from London a lot of them but if you were going for a x week interview most of which will be doing tasks in London isnt it a good idea to learn a bit about the place?

"Everything seems to have been around forever these days."

That's what happens when you've been around forever.

TRaney - 29 Sep 2017 10:44:40 (#8 of 415)

There’s an element of that. But without bothering to do any statistical analysis at all, tv shows seem to run for longer these days.

FrankieTeardrop - 29 Sep 2017 10:45:40 (#9 of 415)

Yes, and it used to be all green fields round here, too.

TRaney - 29 Sep 2017 10:48:57 (#10 of 415)

It used to be all test card round here

It's the ones who claim to be London experts who make the most and best fuck-ups regarding the capital's geography.

markymark123 - 29 Sep 2017 11:34:01 (#12 of 415)

yeah wasnt there a fantastically shite one regarding Regents Park?

SunkenTreasures - 29 Sep 2017 12:04:36 (#13 of 415)

I think, in the grand scheme of fuck ups these people regularly make, not knowing London is incredibly trivial.

Teams made up of people depending on their views of Brexit ie. Brexiteers vs. Remainers.

I think, in the grand scheme of fuck ups these people regularly make, not knowing London is incredibly trivial

every single year, they have a task where they have to go and get cetain objects and get back to HQ at x o'clock or get fined.

every single year they either have to abandon getting some objects or they dont realise where they are and how long it will take to get back and turn up late

SunkenTreasures - 29 Sep 2017 13:15:49 (#16 of 415)

Sometimes that task isn't in London though. It's been abroad a few times. What does happen every year is that their business plans are full of holes and their CVs are full of lies. Which are both worse mistakes than not knowing the geography of London.

turbodante - 29 Sep 2017 16:09:00 (#17 of 415)

Every year, there's one candidate who started with nothing and didn't do very well at school and lived in a council estate raising his ophaned siblings since the age of 8 by selling stuff in a local market.

TRaney - 29 Sep 2017 16:10:54 (#18 of 415)

Not that’s Lord Sugar

FrankieTeardrop - 29 Sep 2017 16:14:28 (#19 of 415)

First they filter out the dullards, then the narcissists and psychopaths, and the last four or five usually seem alright by the end.

Pastor Niemöller there
