Alan Sugar has called for Jeremy Corbyn to resign after the Labour leader said that his pledge to write off student debt wasn’t a committment, but something that the party would look at, and try to reduce over time.
Posting on twitter, Mr. Sugar said:
‘I think you should step down and let someone else rescue the Labour party. You got votes with false promises’.
‘It’s clear you alluded to students refunds to get votes from young impressionable people. You are a cheat and should resign’.
These comments come after Mr. Corbyn told Andrew Marr:
‘I did not make a commitment we would write it off, because I couldn’t at that stage’.
‘I pointed out we had written the manifesto in a short space of time because there was a surprise election, but that we would look at ways of reducing that debt burden, recognising that a lot of it is never going to be collected anyway, and try and reduce that burden’.
‘We never said we would completely abolish it, because we were unaware of the size of it at the time’.
