PM rates life as 'six out of 10'
David Cameron rates his life as just a six out of 10 at present, he has admitted - but says what he is doing as Prime Minister is 100% worthwhile.
He delivered the verdict as he was quizzed about his personal and political life in a guest appearance on the BBC's The One Show magazine programme.
The grilling began with a series of questions taken from the survey he has championed to establish the nation's "well-being" alongside economic indicators.
Asked to rate how satisfied he was overall with his life out of 10, he replied "six" - giving an even lower rating for how happy he felt on Monday, adding: "Monday ... four."
He rapidly revised that upwards though after being reminded he spent the day in Derby where he took the Cabinet for a regional meeting.
"Oh I love Derby, quick, quick. I was at Rolls Royce, I had a great day, it was really interesting, it is such an impressive place. Better give that an eight," he interjected.
But when it came to whether he felt what he did was worthwhile, he told the show's hosts: "I definitely give that a 10.
"I am incredibly lucky to have this job and it is an extraordinary opportunity.
"It's just everybody else's well-being I've got to work on now," he added.
The Prime Minister was also presented with video of a series of public questions - the vast majority hostile to the cuts being inflicted on services they relied on.
