It’s Baaack!

…that’s the BBC’s Apprentice. Yet another series that starts with 16 hopefuls demonstrating all that is worst in human nature. Is it just me, or are these 16 even more frightful caricatures of human beings than ever before? The first casualty, Nicholas de Lacy-Brown, was so over the top as an upper class fop who apparently knows nothing of how ordinary folks live that I wondered what century we are living in. It’s getting to the stage when I am finding it difficult to watch this programme without screaming continuously. I do, however, look forward to the pompous Raef Bjayou getting his richly deserved come-uppance.
 
Update: Anna Pickard has a screamingly funny stream-of-consciousness blog on this episode here. Well worth reading.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
