Lord Sugar ought to stick to firing apprentices?

Well his political diplomacy is hardly a strong point is it?

From The Times November 4, 2009

Lord Sugar: struggling bosses are ‘moaners’ who 'live in Disneyland'

Sugar is hardly likely to worry about the bad press but somehow endearing himself to business people should be something he should carefully consider, because, lets see what's his role again?

Oh yes the Times points out that

"Lord Sugar, who is the Government’s Enterprise Champion", said: ““I can honestly say a lot of problems you hear from people who are moaning are from companies I wouldn’t lend a penny to.”

He reckons that 85% of the loan applications made to banks should be rejected!

“They are bust. The moaners are bust. They are bust and they don’t need the bank — they need an insolvency practitioner".

Interesting view from a business / enterprise champion?

PS don't ask him for a loan as you may be called a moaner!
