Brown 'is worst boss'

Published: Tuesday, 08 April 2008   Category: Graduate Job sector Reports

Prime minister Gordon Brown has been voted the UK's least desirable boss in a survey of some 1,000 graduates

Mr Brown resisted competition from Ann Widdecombe who appeared third and businessman Alan Sugar who finished fourth, suggesting that graduates may be warming to him due to his television show The Apprentice.

Furthermore, the survey by Bright London discovered that Jeremy Clarkson was the person graduates would like to chat to at a party, while an accountant was the was the figure they would least like to encounter at a celebration.

However, being prime minister was voted most desirable job, closely followed by the role of an astronaut.

Commenting on the findings, Bright London's James Uffindell, said: "We think the prime minister performed so badly as he often doesn't seem that approachable or keen to tell it like it is. Jeremy Clarkson on the other hand is the exact opposite - direct, honest and not afraid to spill the beans at any cost."
