Sugar: He’s not feeling too sweet right now (I went with the cartoonised image because he’s acting like a cartoon character, of course).

What do you say to a guy who received a peerage thanks to a Labour prime minister, and then vowed to leave the country if another Labour leader gets to become PM?

Lord Sugar found out over the last few days – and wasn’t very happy about it.

Here’s the tweet that set him off:

This Writer’s first instinct, on watching the clip, was that Sugar had bought into all the nonsense about Mr Corbyn, the Labour Party under him, and anti-Semitism (for the record, anti-Semitism in Labour was low when Mr Corbyn became leader and has diminished since; it is far more prevalent in right-wing parties like the Conservatives). But it seems I need not have worried as his words imply he was suggesting the economy would fall off a cliff.

And that’s odd – hasn’t he noticed what’s happening anyway, due to eight years of Tory failure – and Theresa May’s Brexit?

Lord Sugar spotted the Red Labour tweet and responded – and this is where the story really starts:

Jealous? Anti-enterprise? Anarchist? Losers?

How does he know what these people have achieved?

As for his tax bill – yes, very large, but does he not understand that many, many other citizens of the UK have been held back from reaching the higher pay grades that would make a higher tax bill possible, because of the repressive political philosophy championed by the Conservatives, which is about making the poor poorer and keeping all the privilege for those who already have it?

Is it any wonder the Twittersphere yelled at him? Check out these responses:

If anyone complains about the spelling in the next one, you need to get a sense of perspective:

All good points, I’m sure you’ll agree. And only a few (there are many, many more such tweets) descend to Lord Sugar’s level.

The chances are he won’t leave, of course.

The guys who make such threats are always determined that we’ll do worse without them – and they’d never follow through on those threats in case we don’t.
