Lord Sugar gets fired up

LORD Sugar yesterday responded to heckling from Tory peers by suggesting they should be issued with vuvuzelas.

The star of BBC1's The Apprentice faced shouts of "reading, reading" as he asked a question in the House of Lords. Reading questions is frowned upon, but often passes without comment.

Lord Sugar then asked Lords Leader Lord Strathclyde: "Will you consider issuing vuvuzelas to your benches? It would make a much better noise."

Continuing with his question the entrepreneur said a recent Government document on small businesses was a "restatement of what the past Chancellor (Alistair Darling) said in the Budget of March of this year".
