Lord Sugar accuses people working from home of being 'complacent'
Lord Sugar accused people who still like working from home of "becoming complacent" as he encouraged workers to return to their offices.
"We have been told what to do... Wear masks, wash hands, get on a bus, don't touch your face, get on a train, don't touch your face," he told Phillip and Holly.
"Those people who still like working from home have become a bit complacent honestly," he said, confirming that all the employees at his Loughton business have returned to the office.
Holly challenged Lord Sugar, arguing that there may be many people who are fearful that they could contract coronavirus if they return to work.
He replied: "There's a fine line of fearful and enjoying it to be honest with you. It is as simple as that. What are they fearful of?"
After Phillip read out news reports about the World Health Organisation's fears of a second wave, the business magnate hit back at UK and US news channels for their coverage of the pandemic.
"All they do is cause panic among some people," he argued. "I'm not interested in any of this stuff because you can switch the TV on any time of day and the first thing you see is some more bad news."
"I'm not interested quite frankly. I'm focusing on myself, my family and making sure my staff do the right thing to remain safe."
