It is only recently that I have begun to fully appreciate just how deep people's cynicism in politics actually goes. The
'I'd rather be a dustbin man than work in IT'. These are the exact words of an 11-year-old girl. That's how she responded to my suggestion that she consider a career in technology. Ouch.
This statistic will disturb you: according to MORI just over half of us believe that a man or woman in the street will tell us the truth where as only 14% believe that politicians will do the same.
