After making a fool of himself with some personal remarks. #TEAMSHEILA.

YESTERDAY AFTERNOON, Lord Alan Sugar posted a self-congratulatory tweet with a picture of one of his early Amstrad personal computers.

However, not everyone has happy memories. Irish author Sheila O’Flanagan took Sugs to task with a pointed observation.

Evidently this hit a nerve. Because Lord Alan Sugar, peer of the realm, got really nasty.

This personal remark didn’t go down with a number of Sugar’s followers, who pointed out that it was unfair, unduly personal and generally a bit harsh.

However, Flanagan was waiting in the wings with a stinger of her own.
