The Sunday Times is planning to run a story tomorrow about Sir Alan Sugar’s elevation to the Peerage

I have had a call from a journalist at the Sunday Times who is apparently writing a story for tomorrow about Sir Alan Sugar and his surprise elevation to the Peerage.  He wants to know what the reaction of the Labour Peers Group has been.

I haven’t spoken to him directly, but have left him a message saying:

“Many Labour Peers are looking forward to Alan Sugar joining them in the Government voting lobby late into the evening three times a week. They are, in particular, looking forward to seeing him support Government measures, like the Equalities Bill now going through Parliament, or those strengthening employment rights in the workforce.”

One thought on “The Sunday Times is planning to run a story tomorrow about Sir Alan Sugar’s elevation to the Peerage”

  1. Lord Sugar may be looking forward to reform of the Lords’ hours, Chigwell is a fair way to travel, probably more awkward than Eric Pickles’ gaff in Essex.

    Unlikely he will want to spend less time with his family so a flat in Brentford unlikely.
