Alan Sugar on Gordon Brown

“I have noted with disgust the comments of a certain Mr Gordon Brown who has accused me of doing well out of the recession….I do not know who Mr Gordon Brown is. Excuse my ignorance, but I don’t. Whoever he is, he has not done is homework properly. The man doesn’t know what he is talking about….Labour offers no route out of recession.”

Classic. Great work as always Dizzy.

On the radio earlier they had a clip of Sugar saying how the UK needs Gordon Brown to help us out of recession. I'm sure the change of heart has nothing to do with the peerage. Honest.

I watched him on Breakfast this morning and his expressions of support for Gorgon were hardly warm or fulsome.

By "hardly warm" I mean just above 0 Kelvin.

Why does Gordon Brown think that a guy who manages an IT business (not that good IT either) will be able to advise on business outside of his knowledge.

Once again, because he is known and 'popular' (I think that he is a bullying thug myself and from the stoneage) Labour will recruit him to make them look good.

No substance.

Dear Gordon,

If you want a cabinet that won't fall apart, I suggest Ikea

Regards

Nice.

I've met him and Sugar is a shyster who sees his best bet as the next buck. He doesn't care about Brown, Labour, Tories, the UK or indeed anything; he does care about money and himself and if this aggrandises him he will be quite happy. Same as his second rate TV show which puts him as the centre of attention, he loves that and the fees he makes.

Sugar would have been the spiv in WW2 who would have happily collaborated with the NAZI's if there was a profit to be made, despite his background.

He is an arsehole, and sounds and looks like an arsehole in person too.

I am impressed. A platoon of political researchers wouldn't have turned this up, but you did it all by yourself.

Great find to which I will link!

First Time Caller said...

Hah! Great Find, Dizzy! Anyway, Sugar's got his peerage, now that he's saved his treasure, he can watch the rest of the ship sink.

Lord Snooty said...

Classic, Dizzy! Brilliant work! Keep sockin it to em!

Hang on a minute, does that say 1992...

curly15 said...

Totally astounding, much like the rest of the day.

He did write that letter in 1992. As much as I think his appointment is ridiculous, he's still allowed to change his opinion in 16 years!

Sign up to the call a general election petition: http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/GoToCountryNow/

Call to resign one: http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/please-go/

(I never started either, but there really are a paltry number of sigs on these. They should be in the MSM as far as I'm concerned)

dizzy said...

Hmmm not sure I follow some of the comments on here. There is a link below the scan which says, 'via', its not find its theirs

Time to call an election, why should he. After all the Tories went through it with Thatcher and she waited and waited and fought and fought, nothing like seeing a good fight.

dizzy since your so good at research can you tell me does gordon still go to the palace once a week to confer with the head of state (or does he just stay at home and talk to himself in the mirror).

Brown sits in his bunker in No 10 and waits for the Queen to come to him.

The fact that Alan Sugar insists that his wouldbe apprentices have to call him "Sir Alan" tell you everything you need to know about him.

The fact that he's happy to serve the people who apparently upped his tax bill by 20% from next year tells you that he very likely isn't paying tax in the first place, which makes him perfect to share the trough with his new best mate.

Ian Thorpe said...

I just can't get beyond how much Alan Sugar looks like Sid James in later Carry On films these days.

Oo-er missis.

Windsor Tripehound said...

Alan Sugar is little more than a street-wise barrow boy.

He's made himself a shed load of money (mind you, Amstrad Sky+ boxes are crap) but his ability to contribute to the body politic is nil.
