Lord Sugar also said Michael Gove and Boris Johnson should be in prison [Image: Jim Marks/BBC].

Lord Sugar has said that if the general election was an Apprentice task, he would fire Theresa May and that Jeremy Corbyn would have won.

In an interview with Emma Barnett on BBC 5 Live, the former Labour peer who supported the Tories in the latest election said Mrs May would have been fired if her election campaign had been a task on his hit TV show.

He said Jeremy Corbyn would have been sent on a “nice little trip” – but couldn’t help adding his own preference, “to Siberia, maybe.”

Ms Barnett herself seemed happy to drop her BBC professionalism and add a swipe at Mr Corbyn of her own, suggesting: “Venezuela?”

Poor show, BBC.

Lord Sugar: ‘I would fire Theresa May on The Apprentice’

Lord Sugar says he'd fire Theresa May on The Apprentice. Do you agree?(Via BBC Radio 5 live)

But many will agree with Lord Sugar’s opinion on Boris Johnson and Michael Gove. He said they should be in prison – or at least have criminal records – for their claim during the referendum campaign that £350million a week would go to the NHS post-Brexit.

On whether Boris Johnson and Michael Gove should go to jail, he said: “Absolutely, 100% absolutely. Absolutely. Or at least they should have a criminal record, because the damage that is going to be caused will dawn upon people in two to three years time when they turn to themselves and say ‘I don’t like this being out of the EU business, I don’t know why I voted out of it’.

“If you look at the statistics for who voted for leaving or remaining, it wasn’t exactly a landslide.

“How many of the people who voted believed that lie about the 350million that would stop being paid that would be redeployed in the NHS. If you took the number that voted solely for that reason, we would not be leaving the EU.

“In three to four years time, people will be kicking themselves for leaving the EU. Their lifestyle will change, their total life will change, and that has been caused by a lie!”
