    Isn't Sir Alan's female sidekick a lawyer?

  • 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 looking forward to Claire getting it next week, and being accompanied by the poisonous Jenny. Bring on the next show . . .

    Sir R

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

    Would Sir Alan make it as a lawyer? Hard to tell but it would make for good tv with Mr Amstrad forced to spend three weeks in a data room.

  • Ice queen

    If a man were referred to as an ice queen it would mean something quite different and bring with it a whole new raft of discrimination issues!

    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.

    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!)...
