Over 40% of the British population would choose Barack Obama as their desert island companion, according to research undertaken by PRS for Music, the organization that collects royalties on behalf of composers and songwriters.
While Barack Obama topped the list, Gordon Brown was the least popular choice polling with just 2% of the votes.
The second most popular choice of politician was none- I’d rather be alone.
Boris Johnson proved to be the second most popular politician, David Cameron, came in fourth place, marginally beating Prime Minister Gordon Brown, with 4%.
Perhaps the FSA should conduct a similar poll amongst bankers.
