BY GEORGINA LITTLEJOHN Outburst: Sugar Win: Bloomberg last night Picture of the day GORDON BROWNS business tsar Lord Sugar was condemned by MPs today for reportedly branding some small firms moaners who live in Disney World. The Apprentice star alleg- edly claimed that only about one in seven businesses complaining they had been refused bank loans had justi- fied complaints. I can honestly say a lot of problems you hear from people who are moaning are from companies I wouldnt lend a penny to, he is said to have told delegates at a conference in Manchester yesterday. They are bust. The moaners are bust. They are bust and they dont need the bank -- they need an insolvency practitioner. Shadow Treasury minister Philip Hammond said: This... is in stark contrast with the claims of other ministers to be on the side of small business. Liberal Democrat business spokes- man Lord Thurso said: The Prime Minister must not allow Lord Sugars celebrity to distract him from the absolutely desperate message this sends. A spokesman for Lord Sugar said: The quotes are correct but they have been taken out of context.
