Sir Alan is our number one

By Simon Round, May 16, 2008

The JC’s Power 100 of the most influential Jews in the country has sparked off plenty of debate in the media — mainly about how we could have possibly have fired (or rather failed to hire) Sir Alan Sugar.

For the record, Sir Alan — who is certainly Jewish and influential — did not make the list because, according to one of the judges, Ben Rich, although he is a generous philanthropist for Jewish causes, “he does not pursue a specific agenda”.

However, just in case Sir Alan is feeling left out (and he is certainly not someone we would like to offend), The Diary would like to nominate him as number one in our own Power 100 as the most entertaining Jew on television (on Wednesday nights).
