Survey shows that just 22% trust UK government ministers to tell the truth
From the BBC:
Public trust in senior politicians has fallen in the last two years, according to a survey carried out for the Committee on Standards in Public Life.
The survey suggests 22% of people think government ministers tell the truth – down from 27% in the 2006 survey.
Committee chair Sir Christopher Kelly called the results “deeply disturbing”.
And he said a cause was that greater openness “meant people become aware of things which previously were carried on but they didn’t know about”.
