Lord Sugar says Baroness Brady was right to quit Philip Green role

Baroness Karren Brady has resigned from Sir Philip Green's retail empire, just weeks after vowing to stay in her post despite a harassment scandal.

Lord Sugar told the Press Association that Baroness Karren Brady did the “right thing” quitting her role working for Sir Philip Green, amid controversy.

Amstrad founder, Lord Sugar said his Apprentice co-star’s position was “untenable” as there have been allegations of harassment against Sir Philip.

Lord Sugar said, “Karren’s very well-known for supporting women’s rights, supporting women’s business and all that stuff.

“And I think that the circumstances surrounding her current position with that company is that it became a bit untenable, and I suppose it was with a heavy heart that she had to do the right thing and leave.”

Prior to Baroness Brady leaving Taveta, she had a “sense of duty” to employees across the retail chains such as Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evans and Topshop.

It has been alleged, that Sir Philip used non-disclosure agreements to keep complaints surrounding his private life quiet. There have been fresh calls for his knighthood to be taken from him.
