I searched but failed to locate a thread on this theme. Who do shipmates think should have been fired this week? Or did they agree with Lord Sugar's decision? The "You're fired" audience on BBC2 did not.

And why does Elizabeth attract so much flak? She's a pussycat....

Sajan has been out of his depth for weeks and needed to go.

I like Elizabeth. I don't think she'll win, but she's straightforward and she gets on with the job. I suspect it's partly her lack of any stereotypical feminine style that bothers people.

Elizabeth is 6'2" and extremely pro-active. People who will do the work tend to be left to do it. Then of course, the others complain that she took over, leaving them no chance. But she is simply quite open about wanting to do stuff, whereas the others hold back in the pretence of not really wanting jobs and waiting to be asked.

I think it is her rather dodgy social skills, she is a bit like a real life Miranda or a less polished Claire Balding.

Why do I watch it? Each week I think, what a load of unintelligent beings, then.............I'm hooked!

I can understand Elizabeth's frustration with some of her housemates. I would like to tell them to grow up and act their age. I suppose business people don't have to be too intelligent, except to add up money. But I do sometimes wonder what they have for brains.

So although I find Elizabeth bossy and school- ma'amish, maybe some of her housemates need to listen to her, accept responsibility and stop behaving like self-obsessed teenagers with less intelligence than Pooh Bear.

Roll on next week! Wonder who will be out next?
