Alan Sugar Chess - James McQuillan "Owns" Alan Sugar
Alan Sugar - Your "Owned"
If one does a Google search of "Alan Sugar" and "chess" then you find that the majority of the pages relate to James McQuillan (currently one of the 15 contestants on the BBC series The Apprentice 5). I have already posted about James McQuillan's assertion that he was a child chess champion (here). Whether James truly has any chess ability is under dispute, however, he has definitely 'Owned' Alan Sugar when it comes to the use of the chess metaphor with the brand name Alan Sugar. So rather than "a village missing an idiot somewhere" maybe there is "a boardroom which has found a patzer chairman somewhere".
