An Apprentice Writes........
In 'The Apprentice' (the hit reality show on BBC1) Sir Alan Sugar comes over as the businessman who must know everything about everything. He despises any shiftiness or lack of honesty in the contestants, and demands to hear the groundwork for any decision - no matter how trivial. It is his grasp of detail that made him such a success as this excellent piece running on The Register website shows so clearly.
There is no point in being the boss if you don't know what is going on, which is a point Sir Ian Blair, who was ignorant of the truth of the Menezes killing hours after even his cricket playing off duty constables knew it, may choose to reflect on.
