The Apprentice host hit out at Vote Leave’s Boris Johnson and Michael Gove for “misleading” voters with claims of £۳۵۰m-a-week for the NHS, which was emblazoned across their campaign bus.

During a furious anti-Brexit tirade, the billionaire businessman insisted voters who opted to leave the European Union would soon change their mind if campaign pledges are not delivered.

He told LBC: “When you consider a lot of the electorate believed Boris Johnson and Gove, that £۳۵۰m per week was being paid to the EU and if we left the EU we would then put that £۳۵۰m into the NHS – that was a blatant lie.

“Think about the balance about how close leaving the EU was in the referendum, and think of several tens of thousands of people who tipped the scale as to whether we leave or don’t leave, and the tens of thousands of people who believed that lie.

Brexiteers should face criminal charges, according to Sir Alan Sugar

It should be a criminal offence when something as serious as that is going to change the perception of the UK

Sir Alan Sugar

“Because of that lie we are now engrossed in an exercise of trying to get out of the EU because that’s what we voted for.

“In three to four years time, the full impact of that terrible decision will hit home, and those people who voted to leave will be, most probably, blaming the existing government for not negotiating a better deal.”

Back on the topic of the Vote Leave bus, Lord Sugar blast: “It should be a criminal offence when something as serious as that which is going to change the who perception of the United Kingdom then it should be – simple as that.”

Vote Leave – the official Brexit campaign – toured up and down the country with the red bus, which has since gained notoriety because of NHS slogan on its side.

It read: “We send the EU £۳۵۰ million a week.

“Let’s fund our NHS instead.”

In April, Mr Johnson defended the slogan when he was asked whether he stood by the claims while appearing on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

The Foreign Secretary insisted the figure was “not disputed” and the money which we do not currently control can be spent on priorities, including the NHS, when Britain leaves the EU.

When asked about a crime would be for a politician, Lord Sugar added: “For misleading people and leading them into a bad decision that we shouldn’t have left because they told lies.”

Lord Sugar didn’t leave his criticism for Messrs Gove and Johnson, the businessman took aim at Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s recent U-turn on an apparent pledge to write off historic student debt.

He insisted on independent auditors being appointed before a party can publish its manifesto after the hard-left Labour leader seemingly promised to “deal with” graduates’ student debt during an interview in the build-up to the June election.
