Politicians are the least trusted profession in the UK, being more distrusted than bankers, estate agents and premiership footballers, according to a new poll.
A survey conducted by YouGov for RatedPeople.com, assessed a range of professions on four criteria: value for money, honesty, reliability and quality of work.
The vast majority of people said politicians were poor or very poor for reliability (62%), honesty (70%) and overall quality of work (57%).
The only positive news for politicians is they were not rated the worst in value for money, as they were beaten by premiership footballers. 76% said footballers were poor or very poor value for money, while only 60% said the same for politicians.
The UK’s most trusted professionals are as follows:
8. Estate Agents
9. Premiership Footballers
