Lord Sugar has told LBC pro-Brexit ministers including Michael Gove and Boris Johnson should face criminal charges for “lying” to the public about leaving the European Union.
Lord Sugar was strongly for the UK to remain in the E.U, and blasted politicians from the Vote Leave campaign for “misleading” the public over the controversial “£350m-a-week for the NHS” bus.
Lord Sugar explained: “It should be a criminal offence when something as serious as that which is going to change the whole of the perception of the United Kingdom then it should be – simple as that.”
During the referendum campaign Vote Leave claimed the EU was costing the UK £350m every week which could be money spent on the NHS.
Leading Brexit campaigners, including Mr Johnson and Mr Gove appeared beside the infamous red bus, but the pledge was dropped after Theresa May took over as Prime Minister.
Asked what the crime would be for politicians who didn’t stick to their promises, Lord Sugar continued: “For misleading people and leading them into a bad decision that we shouldn’t have left because they told lies.”
It was “100 per cent a lie” Lord Sugar told LBC.
