A recent Travelodge poll found that UK finance minister George Osborne tops the list of personalities who frequent Brits' nightmares, Reuters reported.

Forget the Boogeyman. It’s the UK finance minister who has Brits waking up in a panic.

A Travelodge poll found that 70 percent of Brits have nightmares and that George Osborne is a regular in those bad dreams, Reuters reported. Osborne, whose official title is Chancellor of the Exchequer, has been the focus of public criticism after enacting cuts to welfare budgets and a freeze in public sector pay. He was booed during a medal ceremony at the Paralympics this summer, Reuters said.

“Suffering from nightmares that involve the chancellor, money and losing a job are a true reflection of how the credit crunch and the double dip recession have affected our well being as well as our money,” Travelodge spokeswoman Shakila Ahmed said in a statement

Former Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown came in second, followed by fashion model Katie Price, also known as Jordan. Justin Bieber and Marilyn Manson also made the top 10, ranking seventh and eighth, respectively.
