CV lies: join our Apprentice debate

Lee McQueen last night became The Apprentice despite lying (sorry, misconstruing information) about his educational record on his CV.

At 12.30 today, I’m debating this issue on Sky News Online. (That’s me in the pic.)

Our view: porkies are a no-no, especially written down. In these days when business is undergoing ever greater scrutiny and consumers tend increasingly towards brands with strong ethical values, business itself must be clean.

But be aware that, in a competitive commercial situation, everyone else will be bigging themselves up in their determination to win that deal.

Over the past couple of months, we’ve tackled all the big issues raised in The Apprentice. Now it’s time to get the nation talking. We’d love you to join in.
