Lord Sugar might be amused to discover that the man who replaced him as the government advisor on enterprise has been forced to quit just weeks after taking on the role.

Lord Young walked after making misjudged remarks about the "so-called recession" and used the infamous line that most Britons has "never had it so good".

The enterprise czar made the comments to the Daily Telegraph and has been on the back foot ever since with the Prime Minister David Cameron criticising the remarks before Lord Young himself took the decision to quit.

In his brief Lord Young, who has served as a Cabinet minister in the Thatcher government, was given a brief to review strategies to help new start-ups and to change the attitude of government towards small business helping cut red tape.

He started the role at the start of the month replacing Sugar, who had been appointed by the previous government.
