A reprise. But it's so relevant again.

Sir Alan Sugar, star of The Apprentice, used to start each show with the line "I don't like liars, I don't like schmoozers, I don't like bullsh**ers".

The four candidates left after yesterday's semi-final prove that actually he does. All four embody those qualities, as do many of those who were fired, they were positively praised after spouting the same ego-babble in their interviews.

But I fully admit, those three qualities should really help you to be a good salesman of tat, maybe that's what Sir Alan is actually looking for, though I suggest that other qualities are more important to be a good manager of people.
