Apple CEO turned down invitation to Labour speech

Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown refused to knight Steve Jobs in 2009 because the Apple CEO turned down an invitation to speak at a Labour Party conference, a former senior MP in the party claims. The MP, who exited British parliament after the last election, put Jobs forward as a potential knight for services to technology. "Apple has been the only major global company to create stunning consumer products because it has always taken design as the key component of everything it has produced. No other CEO has consistently shown such a commitment," the person argues.
