Jobseekers think Gordon Brown is the party leader most likely to embarrass himself at the Christmas party

Adding insult to injury for Gordon Brown, employees agree he is the party leader most likely to embarrass himself at a company Christmas party.

The survey of over 3,000 jobseekers concluded 51% of the British public would least like to work with Brown when compared with Nick Clegg (15%) and David Cameron (33%). And 45% of voters elected Brown as the most likely to embarrass themselves at the office party.
The survey also revealed that although the majority of people would prefer to work with Clegg, the Liberal Democrat leader narrowly missed out on the ‘best boss' gong, which went to Cameron. Cameron was the boss of choice, with 38% of the votes.
Brown was ranked as the public's third choice boss, with only 26% of the votes.
Corrine Hutchinson, marketing director of TipTopJob.com, said "What I found most intriguing about the results was the public's clear preference for Nick Clegg as a co-worker but not as a superior. Perhaps this would suggest an inability to lead with strong conviction.
"I know that the majority of our office was in agreement with the results of the office party question. Gordon seems like the kind of guy to enjoy himself, should the right situation arise."
