James McQuillan Loses The Apprentice Endgame - A Knight Is No Competition Against 4 Potentially Queenable Non-connected Passed Pawns

James McQuillan "The Apprentice Legend" and alleged child chess champion was fired by Sir Allan Sugar last evening after the "trial by job interview" episode. The job interviews were illuminating as it became clear that some of the things written in James' CV were placed there for dramatic effect. I suspect the child chess champion assertion may have also been inserted with an element of hyperbole. For those of you who haven't seen James in action - here are some youtube clips.
