Gordon, you plonker

Is this actually good news for Scots?
The majority of UK company directors would rather deal with someone who sounds like Gordon Brown than Del Boy Trotter, a study of accents has found.
I would hope that company directors go by more than how people talk. Maybe Del Boy sells us the odd bit of "dodgy gear" now and again but he usually gets his comeuppance in the end and justice is done. Gordon Brown, on the other hand, has destroyed our pensions, strangled business with red tape and is taxing us to death, leaving taxpayers "boracic" and companies with few "nice little earners".

I'm a company director. Give me Del Boy any day.
