Karren Brady's anger over Nigel Farage's women slur

By Joe Churcher

Businesswoman Karren Brady has attacked Nigel Farage over claims some mothers are "worth less" to employers than male colleagues.

The star of TV's The Apprentice - who last week took her seat as a Tory peer - said the Ukip leader's attitude made her "shudder".

Baroness Brady, who was the first female chief executive of a Premier League football club and is David Cameron's small business ambassador, spoke while campaigning in Rochester and Strood ahead of next week's by-election.

Baroness Brady said: "I shudder... These are the attitudes that make women less likely to put themselves forward - just as we need more of the skills and insight they can bring."
