A nation of cynics


Extracted from the Eurobarometer national findings are data on who or what we Britons trust or otherwise. Salient divergences are greater than EU average trust in the army and far less trust in the EU and the press. Quite why anyone, let alone half the population, trusts the UN (unless it is to waste money and be an utter shambles) is a mystery. I suppose the 28% who trust the Internet must be itching to give all their money to the next 419 fraudster to try it on. Equally odd is the - admittedly small - discrepancy between trust in radio and TV - do people think that BBC radio and TV, and commercial TV and commercial radio have wholly separate news gathering operations?
