By the Skinner of Thomas's teeth, he once again avoided getting the finger!
But what happened Thomas in Week 4?
Where did the diamond geezer go when he let the shrinking violet into the boardroom where Marianne
publicly put him down making it look as though through the tightness of the lycra a certain part of his anatomy had ended up on the back of her non electrical bike!
were some really poor decisions made as soon as he became PM; a majority vote with the main contender being Lottie, even though Lottie had some valid reasons for leading this task. Instead of getting her on side and making her Sub Team Leader and allowing
her to put her money where her mouth is, Thomas chose Marianne who seems to be on the warpath with Lottie and this did nothing towards them being able to work productively as a team and he let them be on the same team in the knowledge that all was not well.
Thomas then put Riyonn, Marianne and Lottie in charge of the design team - he may as well just popped down the rub a dub for some pie, mash and jellied eels as this
was a major oversight as if the product is wrong then everything else will go wrong and it did!
The colour and rocket logo were the downfall of the design
- who wants to buy a burnt orange bike combined with red wheels and a white rocket logo on the front? Nothing about the finished product said classic, stylish, classy or an item aimed at the mature market who wanted to get fit - instead it sent mixed
messages from childlike to devilish and the name just added to the series of woes. E Fit - E =Electric Fit = Getting Fit. It sounded like a cigarette but was marginally better than Bounda ree suggested by Marianne which was completely pants.
The design team either didnt listen or one suspects as Marianne was made Sub Team Leader and is probably the most far removed in reality from cockney slang and the dialect
of Thomas doesnt actual understand what he is talking about half the time neither appreciates what the nuts means - perhaps you need to translate Thomas which may help iron out any communication issues!
On choosing the accessory to sell at the launch Thomas's focus was purely the wholesale price which swayed him in picking the snazzy lycra which he then modelled on the day of the launch which wouldn’t have helped
And on it goes layer after layer of errors and bad judgements or personal decisions that were the wrong decisions.
Then to top it off Thomas didn’t stand up for himself when accused of it being The Thomas Show - instead he was on meltdown fearful that his nuts were about to be cracked - his body language
was telling with all the nose twitching that went on.
It will take more than those baby blues to save you the next time Thomas - you need to smash the next
task and demonstrate that you are more than a one trip pillow salesman!
