Overall, Lord Sugar was an excellent boss. Why? Because he explained the goal of the task clearly at the beginning of each week, and then he gave us performance reviews in the board room based on how well we reached his targets.
Where did all the clubs go? One minute there is a vibrant underground club scene and the next, seemingly, it's vanished, in what felt like seconds. Take London as an example. Every district had it's very own club legends and legendary clubs, from the West End to Walthamstow.

Many, having left home to escape abuse, are also now at greater risk of sexual abuse, sex trafficking and prostitution. Marginalised within society, they are invisible and amongst the hardest to reach and protect.
