The Apprentice absentees

Apprentice master Lord Sugar may be the only Jew in the boardroom in the new series of the show. While no fewer than a quarter of last year's 16 candidates were Jewish, this year's crop has yet to reveal the slightest heimishe trace.

Perhaps someone noted our editorial observing that if Jewish participation reflected our overall proportion in the population, there would be just one Jewish competitor every 11 years.
