APPRENTICE star and peer Lord Sugar has announced that he is quitting the Labour party.

Lord Sugar said his resignation was accepted as the party had been “aware of my disillusionment for some time”.

He added he had lost confidence in Labour during the last 12 months due to their “negative business policies and the general anti-enterprise concepts” they were proposing should they be elected under Ed Miliband’s leadership.
