Apprentice winner Stella English ‘told there is no job by her boss on first day in £100,000 role’
The last thing Alan manufactured of any merit was the CPC6128 in my opinion (designed largely by Roland Perry), viglen ? christ I thought that PC brand died 20 years ago ? They mainly seem to sell very average PC’s at high margin into the public sector, ie a tax waste ? for public facing bureaucrats who are shit at IT sourcing ? and his business empire ? isn’t he mainly just a property developer now ? like most lazy people who want to be rich today and have little actual entrepreneurial skill, I suppose at least ALan did stuff in the fledgling tech industry back then and this is something to be thankful for, property re-developers they skim exorbitant mortgage payments of a tenant or the taxpayer through housing benefit and wait for house price increases its not exactly rocket science. He probably makes a great deal more off doing the apprentice ? than any of his business’s provide in real job opportunities for its contestants ?
And now for Stella English, hmm seems to be guided by the mail shall we say, the number of articles relating to her is bizzarre and her complaining about a scenario in which her job is too easy and shes getting 100,000 a year ? christ go get another job no-one cares for your kind of complaint, suing him for 5 million ? in this case regardless of the panto tv trash that is the apprentice which i would have thought was obvious to anyone but a moron ? how were you ever a trade floor manager ? im on the side of Alan in this case.
This is the kind of stuff Viglen do >
Viglen have beaten a string of overseas suppliers to a prestigious contract worth over £6m, having been selected by the Government Procurement Service to supply a range of computer equipment to the public sector.
The awarding of the contract will see Viglen supplying over 50 central and local government customers including a number of NHS and local education authorities with over 17,000 computers and 10,000 screens over the next two years. This follows a tender process which took the form of a reverse online auction. The contract is a 24-month supply agreement with two 12-month extension periods, and has the potential to grow further to include educational establishments, charitable organisations, social enterprises and the voluntary sector.
Roughly £352 per computer, not too overpriced for the UK taxpayer, and least Viglen are UK based, but they will probably make the major money from this on installation, training and servicing.
