Sir Alan: some jews are miserable (but not me)

By Simon Round, April 2, 2009

In a recent interview in The Guardian, Sir Alan Sugar commented on the fact that while he had been left out of the JC’s Power 100 of this country’s most influential Jews, the JC had attempted to make amends by declaring him The Most Entertaining Jew on TV. Sir Alan said (rather miserably, we thought): “Well, it’s not hard to be number one entertaining Jew. Some of them are quite bleeding bloody miserable, really.”

At the risk of affecting Sir Alan’s mood further, we feel we should put the record straight. Last May, the Diary actually declared him to be The Most Entertaining Jew on TV on Wednesday Nights. He remains head and shoulders ahead of the field (on this evening at least).
