    Sorry Joe - in fact there is a thread on the AmEx board which discusses this ..

    However it wouldn't be the first time a character had suddenly changed for no reason ..

    No need to apologise! I was merely anticipating possible complaints about discussing events in AmEx. My comment about not continuing the discussion here was intended to reassure, not rebuke anyone.

    AP, I think what I mean is that when the previous incumbant of the position is *dead* and didn't willingly go away, she becomes beyond reproach; her clay feet will never be noticed again, because memory overlays them with a gilt haze. That might just be more difficult to deal with that than with the memory of someone who has gorn orf and therefore has done the spouse wrong and remains a human being rather than a saint in heaven.

    This is manipulation, pure and simple.

    If it is then, to me at least, it doesn't seem to be working very well.

    Alan and Usha seem to be getting fed up with Amy and so is Chris, which I can understand, and I get the impression that Alice is starting to losing all sympathy for Amy as well.

    I'm just waiting for Amy's departed mum's past to be dug up again...........

    It is manipulation ok.

    The fact that it is unsuccessful manipulation doesn't make it any less so; it just makes it obvious how nasty it is, whereas manipulation by sweet people who say "Darling, I'm so sorry to bother you, but I wonder if you could just possibly....? Only if it is no trouble, of course" can work for years and years and years, and the manipulated victim never notice that they never get anything they want because it always goes to the manipulator.

    Women in The Archers are rarely successful manipulators: they are too busy bludgeoning people into submission to their whill (which is a cross between a will and a whim, a sort of whim of iron), which is what Amy would do if she had any power to do it -- she hasn't, so she is trying to cause people to do what she wants without actually just ordering them to in the way that Elizabeth or Pat or Helen would.

    Amy with her flat vowels and boring personality, her dad with his boring pontification - I wish they'd both ascend to wherever Alan thinks he's bound for. I don't want to listen to any more of Amy's juvenile whining. Even if the bloke hadn't been married, her clinging ivy attitude would have put him off. Get over it - worse things happen.

    ...........he's not here, why's he not here?!"


    Because he's at home with his wife and child you stupid, stupid, stupid 23 year old teenager! 
    So I wasn't the only one shouting that at the radio last night. 
    Amy comes across as really stupid , and almost incoherent .In a word gormless. For some one who is working in a job where responsibilty is paramount she certainly is a misfit all round . A young woman who behaves like a 12 year old .Doesnt make Carl right but hey why is everyone oh so wrong -------

    I quite agree: Amy doesn't behave like a woman with any brains at all. And they say that university standards aren't falling? How did she get a degree?

    She was besotted with him.

    A poster told of a similar situation where the ditched one was a highly qualified accountant. She made life hell for her step-ma after something detrimental stepm had said about ex-bf (something stepm had overheard).

    So far as I know accountant didn't tackle ex-bf though .. but her behaviour to her stepm was the same as Amy's to Usha ..
