  • I am astonished that after all her good work dressed as a banana on Oxford Street and managing tasks on how to buy a list of things she wasn’t taken seriously in industry. She really nailed the “why talk when you can shout” philosophy that serves everyone so well in business.
    I am glad Emperor Alan’s reputation and credibility are safe; he is such an inspiration to us all.

  • The article states that there was no basis for bringing a claim as Ms English had resigned. In fact any claim for constructive dismissal can only be made following a resignation. The issue is whether the Employer has conducted themselves in a manner in which the employee is entitled to treat the contact of employment as having been repudiated. The Tribunal obviously found that this was not the case and that is was therefore just a resignation and that there was no constructive dismissal.

  • If she was a football manager she'd have got a big payoff. Its clear she was after a crafty pay off from our dear old lofty lord. never-the-less to leave with nothing but a tap on the knuckles and boot to her rear end seems a little harse!

  • Can Alan no longer stretch to having Herbies represent him?

  • Lady Thatcher would have approved. Thank you Lord Sugar. My kind of guy. Always good to see someone take a stand and not do a deal to avoid bad publicity. Sounds like Max Clifford could do with a lesson or two in basic litigation tactics.

  • Er, Max Clifford has one or two more pressing problems of his own right now.

  • Bad day for Ms English and her solicitor. Sounds like his insurers better tool up.

    Herbies is a law firm, Parklane Plowden is a chambers. Instructing Herbies as counsel would be like spending £5000 on a bed from Ikea when Stocktons is next door.
