Look, Charlie, you broke the TV, and it just won't do..... Yes, I would like some chocolate'

The Bob Hoskins of the business world, Sir Alan Sugar (see how many anagrams there are of that name, kids) has said that his perfect candidate on The Apprentice would be Charlie Bucket.

Bucket, the kid from a poor back-ground who goes onto win a Chocolate factory in Roald Dahl's book 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' is the book that Sir Alan recommends as reading material to all potential and aspiring candidates on the Apprentice.

'I see Charlie as a very good business strategist. He is there for the long game, he does not show of, he simply keeps his eyes down and his nose clean' said the bearded entrepreneur.

'He lets his competitors, take the heat, and make the mistakes, whilst he and his grandpa Joe just listen to what Willy Wonka tells them. It is an ideal strategy, hats of to him, he deserved everything that he got, and lets face it, a Chocolate factory is a better prize than the one I offer'

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
