Jo Walsh surrounds herself with two-faced 'luvvie darlings' and then picks them off one by one and makes them feel so inadequate that they either leave or are dismissed.
Ed Irving, the sales director has no balls, so Sharon Randawha (now Sharon Azam) takes the sales manager role. She delights in cruely taking the piss out of anyone.
