Lying to voters ‘should be a criminal offence’ says Alan Sugar

A sentiment I can totally agree with.

The Hooting Times

Alan Sugar has argued that politicians who lie to the public should face jail sentences, saying:

‘As the chairman of a public company, if I told lies in a shareholders’ statement that resulted in the crash of the share price or the increase in the share price, which caused traders to go and buy lots of shares or not to buy lots of shares, I would be put in prison’.

‘If they lie, which results in massive decisions like leaving the European Union, or gaining votes in a general election, then this should be a criminal offence as it would be in a public company if I lied to my shareholders’.

‘If you mislead people like that, I think it should be a criminal offence’.
