I know she's very successful blah blah blah, but there's something about her, I just cant warm to her at all

I'm the same. She irritates me on the Apprentice. Getting all offended on behalf of women everywhere for no good reason at all.

YABU. I like her. I just don't like that what she has achieved is still seen as unusual just because she is female.

is she a tory?

Same here. I went to a women's networking thing once at which she was speaking, for a substantial fee. She turned up late, networked with no one, did her speech, and then sodded off. The organisers and attendees were not impressed...

Oh. I'm quite disappointed to hear that EuroShaggleton. I quite liked her after the Piers i/v. It's only when you see these people in action you get the real picture...
She doesn't strike me as warm, but I admire her success.

I like her.

I can see why she comes across as anti-women on the apprentice. But I think she is hard on them all. I read somewhere that when she was promoted to a Board, she was the first and only female but by the time she left, half the Board were female.
She said something like 'it's not about opening doors for women, it's about keepin the door open for other women to follow'.

I think she is fab.

I liked her up until she was on the piers Morgan show on Friday and she wasn't how I thought she was if that makes sense. Found her very guarded and a bit cold. Her daughter is stunning btw.

Can't warm to her at all because of her association with that horrendous little pornographer toad David Sullivan.

Yabu OP - I really like her.

ssd Sun 07-Apr-13 18:05:22

she always seems the sort of woman who goes on telly fighting for womans rights whilst trying to pay her cleaner and nanny as little as poss

...and demanding they were fully flexible to fit around HER rota

Ooh no I really like Karren Brady, I think she comes across as a really nice person.

AnyFucker Sun 07-Apr-13 18:21:37

I don't like her.

She was/is in cahoots with pornographers and minimises it when asked to explain how she squares that with being a successful businesswoman and so-called example of a woman who has got ahead on her own merit

She also had a very privileged upbringing, which is fine, but downplays that too

She was given her job at Birmingham City by David Sullivan. As I mentioned further down the thread.

I thought she was a bit hard but by the end of it has a charm of her own and what she said right at the end of the Piers Morgan interview was so true. I warmed to her but you can never really say until you meet someone.
