Sugar to Miliband: You’re Hired!

As revealed in Guido’s Sun column yesterday, Lord Sugar has a new hire in Ed Miliband’s office. The pair have had their differences over the last twelve months, most amusingly when Sugar suggested Labour voters ignore Ed Miliband and ditch Ken at the London mayoral election. That hasn’t stopped the Apprentice host from forking out £51,000 towards the staffing costs of Ed’s office for the coming year. Guido makes that the biggest single donation directly to Ed.

    George Osborne says:

    Some weeks I get 51k donations and some weeks I don’t.

    Mike Litorus says:

    I look forward to Ed moaning about multi-millionaire donor Ashcroft in coming PMQs, the bellend..

    Steve Miliband says:

    The man who chose Betamax over VHS

  4. 4
    The Right Honourable George Osborne Mp says:

    I think we’ve got a very clear message, a loud and clear message that Britain cannot let up in dealing with its debts, dealing with its problems, cannot let up in making sure that Britain can pay its way in the world.

  5. 5
    George Osborne says:

    In my next budget I’m going to put a tax on Sugar!

    At £2.25 + VAT per email

  18. 18
    Robust stakeholder community champion says:

    Ed Miliband uses the label “one nation” but he means “one donation” and it’s the massive inflow of funds from the trade unions who are desperate to pad local councils with non-jobs.

    Glyn H says:

    Rennard, Sugar, Gorbals Mick; the quality if life peers is ever worse. This creep is merely sucking up to what he thinks might be the next administration. He is the sort of toe rag that gives Rolls-Royce ownership a bad name.

    How can this serious businessman back the party that will ultimately destroy the UK? What is the matter with the man, does he have a mental illness?

    JadedJean says:

    Miliband and Sugar are from the same tribe so I expect they will settle their differences…as someone astutely commented on here the other day…just which nation is Ed referring to when he repeatedly bleats his “One Nation” catchphrase?

  27. 27
    Lord Sugar says:

    You are also fired

    Would Sugar give an apprentice the job if the latter offered him a bung?
    You bet he would.

    rebekah aka nellnewman says:

    Old sugar – a serious businessman?11 He’s spent his life troughing off labour – gordon made this failed idiot a lord at our expense.

    he’s just giving labour back some of the money he’s managed to leach off us as a thankyou.

    Anonymous says:

    He’ll get some tidy contract out the deal. Perhaps a slice of Miliwonk’s future property portfolio.

  35. 35
    rebekah aka nellnewman says:

    Quite! gordon made this trashy ‘gentleman’ a Lord – no doubt in exchange for ‘something’

    As a consequence old sugar is now able to leach off the taxpayer and is simply redirecting some of that taxpayers money into militwit’s pocket!!

    You scratch my back I’ll scratch yours – it’s labour’s motto.

  36. 36
    Call me Dave says:

    You sound a rather unkempt fellow

    This should ensure Sugar gets preferential consideration when the next Labour government requires tendering for dysfunctional IT equipment to count the dead bodies in the NHS!

    Peter (loves it) Thatchless says:

    “Several of my friends – gay and straight, male and female – had sex with adults from the ages of nine to 13. None feel they were abused. All say it was their conscious choice and gave them great joy… While it may be impossible to condone p**dophilia, it is time society acknowledged the truth that not all sex involving children is unwanted, abusive and harmful.”

    Lord Randy just shows that beggars can’t be choosers, as do his ‘victims’. But its an improvement on the bugger thy neighbor policies followed by the rest of the party.

    It’s funny how if you criticise Israeli policy on here you’re accused of anti-semitism, but if you make a comment that shows you are a piece of anti-semitic sh*t, nothing happens.

    Casual Observer says:

    The majority are not. The church is going to be cleaned now as they cannot afford further litigation.

    One question which does need to be asked, but conveniently glossed over in this affair and what has just happened with the p0pe:

    Where is God ?

    Ed Moribund says:

    Lord Siralan said to me, “so I said to the BBC, “what’s this extra £51k for?, and they said oops, clerical error, but it would be to complicated to take it back from you, so just donate it to your favourite cause””.

  64. 64
    NHS says:

    No need to buy in expensive IT equipment that doesn’t work
    , (obviously we’ll still do it if we are just following orders)
    But we could make savings by selling the bodies as bio fuel for incineration (old idea from the 40s)
    Those patients in the corridors are always moaning about the cold

  65. 65
    White hat geek says:

    The professional format of Betamax known as Betacam is what the broadcasters use.

    This is in use by BBC and others globally, but the transition to digital continues.

    He’s on the IT Education gravy train with his weird Viglen outfit.
    Don’t forget this is the man who brought you the PC2000 range possibly the biggest sack of sh_t ever. Hopefully Millibean will equip Labour HQ with his kit and that should f_ck them.

    BBC policy guru says:

    There are no non-jobs in Lambeth. Most of their staff do a very good production everyday of “Doin the Lambeth Walk” at bars after work, and even during work. They even help people to vote labour like us :)

    Sugar’s money goes around comes around. Makes everything better.

  72. 72
    Who Want's Some! says:

    Here George Funding for Lending Scheme seems to have f_cked up mate. Why not just stop giving the banks money and put some into the real productive economy as a tax cut? You know like a Conservative government would.

    Possibly at the local restaurant. That’s cos of allowing poor Eastern EU immigrants to try to eke a living in the east end.

  74. 74
    Airey Belvoir says:

    The EU has beaten you to it. They have jacked up the CAP price of cane sugar so high (to protect French sugar beet farmers) that the big Tate and Lyle plant on the Thames is likely to have to close – already laying off workers.

  75. 75
    Thick student says:

    We were all under the impression that Millipede was a multi millionaire. Have we been deceived?

    If he has so much cash, why can’t he fund his own office himself (or is Sugar up to some dodgy tax wheeze whereby he can claim tax relief on these “donations”, “gifts”, or “losses” ???

  76. 76
    Thick student says:

    Use Sweetex.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
