Reply Link Country cousin 24 April 2008 at 14:48 country v city Team members were without exception prejudiced against people in the country, affecting mock ‘country’ accents and wondering if any of them might have seven chins. Surely such discriminatory behaviour would not be tolerated in the boardroom or, indeed, on the job at all.

Very much enjoying “The Iron Lady” lawyer Margaret coming out of the shadows. We like a bit of stern legal discipline in these parts.

Reply Link Angry woman- not an ice queen 24 April 2008 at 15:40 Women in the workplace Why are women always portrayed as the “evil queens” in these shows? If it were a man being “cold” as Sir Alan’s sidekick called Jennifer I wander whether he would have receieved the same comments? When Jennifer confronted her opponents on the bitching they all looked away sheepishly- which is cowardice. If you have a problem confront it head on- thereby avoiding possible legal action.

Reply Link Anonymous 25 April 2008 at 16:34 Women in the workplace Here we go…. why does every analysis of this kind lead to a wheeling out of the token females and (even better) ethnic females… the right person for the job should get the job because they’re the right person… female or male… Jen is called a bitch because she is… Alex is cooed over because he is handsome…it’s as simple as that…plus this is a consensually arranged show format… not the factory floor… so sod off and get back to earning fees (your job unless you’ve forgotten!)… Reply Link Anonymous 25 April 2008 at 16:39 Country Cousin Country Cousin? Cletus? Who the hell do you think you are you smog gasping, natural light shunning, detritus wallowing tube rat… with no more right to live on God’s good earth than a weasel….go fall through a bar Del Boy…or get back to your bedsit and fiddle along to Location…you plonker!
