Lord Sugar: Ken, you’re fired.

Although there’s been a veritable flood of Labour members declaring themselves to be against Ken Livingstone, most thus far have been – whilst often respected in political and media circles – largely unknown by normal Londoners. That’s now all changed.

Earlier today, Lord Sugar – Apprentice supremo, Labour peer and Labour donor – urged his two million Twitter followers to not vote for Ken.

It’ll be interesting to see if Sugar elaborates further nearer the election, but it’s easy to see why he wouldn’t be keen on the old socialist’s anti-business, anti-Jew rhetoric. Whatever the reasons for Sugar’s sage advice, it goes without saying that being openly discredited by one of his party’s most popular and well-known supporters is a massive blow for Ken and his team.
