Put your superiority to the test, Sir Alan

24th March 2006 at 00:00
Dear Sir Alan

I am writing in connection with a remark you made on The Apprentice, screened on March 15, in which you lambasted members of the losing team and compared them to college of further education dummkopfs learning to make mistakes. As the principal of one such college, I would like to challenge this remark by pitting half a dozen of my students against your final six (the general view around the college is that we may have to give your team, on its present performance, something of a start). Up for it? It might even be filmed as a special.
