    I know Audi-Sport.net is very friendly and good natured, but it's worth taking a look at this very important piece of case law:

    Linky

    It's always worth bearing this in mind before saying anything too excitable on cyberspace.

    Can't really give too much away... but the total cnut on the apprentice is infact even worse than he appears, I have proof he has used at least 2 false names and is a general "a bit dodgy"

    I'm a big fan of The Apprentice. The five fellas left are:

    Ansell
    Paul
    Samuel
    Syed
    Tuan

    Syed looks to be the most irritating.

    Aye, if you read the link you posted to the legal action cited the first insult as "Lard Brain"....

    Sarcasm, the lowest form of wit perhaps, but prevelant here...

    Tuan is a true petrolhead by the way and a nice chap, his garage at the end of last year included a Lamobo Murci, F360 and a TVR Sagaris - and they wouldn't let him turn up to the house in his Lambo - to/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gifers!

    I also think he is about the only one on the show that is already very sucessful.

    Sarcasm is the only was I can make it through life without needing to by a machine gun and "off" some people - the only problem is it's completely lost on most of the americans I have to speak to on a daily basis (I get those funny silences on conference calls whenever I make a joke /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif)

    They seem to think so:

    "It's SH!TE being Scottish! We're the lowest of the low. The scum of the f*cking Earth! The most wretched miserable servile pathetic trash that was ever shat on civilization. Some people hate the English. I don't. They're just w*nkers. We, on the other hand, are colonized by w*nkers. Can't even find a decent culture to get colonized by. We're ruled by effete assholes. It's a sh!te state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and all the fresh air in the world won't make any f*cking difference! "
