Lord Sugar has made a huge u-turn on Europe after a video was leaked of him supporting Leave principles just six months ago!
The entrepreneur recently announced that Brits would be “the mugs of the world” if we voted to leave the EU, saying free trade is vital to keep our economy “strong and open”.
In an open letter he said: “I’ve been in business for 50 years. I’ve seen some pretty daft ideas in my time. And I’ll tell you one of them: Britain leaving the EU.”
But a video leaked by Guido Fawkes shows that he had a very different view just six months ago. In the footage he says: “I don’t want to have Brussels telling me about, you know, some more stupid rules and regulations that I have got to adhere to. We should make our own rules up as far as that’s concerned.”

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
