Barack Obama and Queen ‘Desert Island’ Companions

Over 40 percent of the British population would choose Barack Obama as their desert island companion, according to research undertaken by PRS for Music, the organisation that collects royalties on behalf of composers and songwriters.

While Barak Obama topped the list, Gordon Brown was the least popular choice polling with just 2 percent of the votes.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, 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.
