The reshuffle task – Gordon Brown faces Lord Sir Alan Sugar in the boardroom

The reshuffle task - Gordon Brown faces Lord Sir Alan Sugar in the boardroom

Gordon Brown faces his final task - the reshuffle. With ministers resigning left, right and centre the task could hardly have been more of a shambles. Lord Sir Alan Sugar meets with the unelected team leader in the boardroom to hear his delusional summary of the task. Watch it here

  • In my opinion BBC have been weak (as have The Apprentice’s producers, talkbackTHAMES) in allowing Sugar to get involved here. BBC doing a tap dance to please the current Government as they know that they will get a hard time when Tories come in. Look out for some long-term and fairly generous structural concessions being given to BBC in Lord Carter’s report into the future of Digital Britain on June 16th… BBC desparate to twiddle any knobs they can to keep their level of funding way above what’s currently happening in the commercial sector; ITV/C4/FIVE/Sky.
    Finally, Sugar’s ego is greater than his judgement on this matter.

  • japanese uncle says:

    What if those banks start lending (not least savers’) money to the property developers or builders, just to deteriorate their books of bad debt, which is an inevitable certainty? When faced with the class actions by shareholders and other stakeholders (maybe savers), are the bankers expected to mention ‘we just followed Sir Alan’s instruction’? For their idiotic lending practice a couple of years ago at the peak of the bubble, there can possibly be a defense ‘At that time no one could expect such a dramatic crisis’ (which of course is an utter rubbish as we all know). But now that nearly everyone including cats and toddlers on the street are aware the economy is in free fall, can they repeat the same defense?

  • Brown Sugar has a new meaning. It’s the names of two very very wonderful human beings.

  • Brown’s attempt at popularity politics is so obvious that it is patronising.
    Some time back he was discussing Jade Goody in the House of Commons.
    Last week back he was expressing his concern for the Britain’s got Talent singer Susan Boyle.
    And now we have he of “The Apprentice” being employed.
    I would put money on it that if it were not for The Apprentice then Mr Sugar would not have been
    employed.

  • @ denzil – yep, reality TV is an oxymoron. Brown discussing reality TV is the fake discussing the fake.

  • Cowell’s “yeah, right” attitude when he “first” saw Susan Boyle and the disbelieving, euphoric look and the flashing of his whitened teeth when he heard her sing was a big piece of fakery (what was he expecting – somebody who neither looked nor sang like a proper singer? – in that case, how would she have made it onto national TV?). Yes, he’s qualified for a cabinet post.

  • Just heard a good one…
    “The Labour Party now has a window of opportunity and they should push Gordon Brown out of it.”

    On a more constructive note, perhaps if NuLab said they would go for an election in September/October once they had jointly made changes to the constitution over expenses, they might have a little more credibility in their last days. Maybe a replacement PM for the remaining 4 months wouldn’t be a bad idea. It would at least show the cabinet was listening.

    Credibility will affect everything from industry and house prices to the pound. We ain’t got a lot right now.
