Trust in politicians dismally low

The latest Ipsos-Mori poll on trust in different professions was released yesterday.  Once again, politicians do poorly.  76 per cent of the public now don't trust politicians to tell the truth.  Surely politicians can't enjoy being trusted significantly less than used car salesmen?


If they want to improve things they should stop telling the public they can manage public services without experience, from the centre.  Stop overpromising and people might start to believe what you tell them.
