Trust in politicians sinks to an all-time low

THE reputation of politicians in Britain has sunk to its lowest level ever. The latest survey by an influential Commons committee shows that a mere 26pc of voters trust MPs to tell the truth.
One of the most sceptical of those voters is the actor Hugh Grant, who played a key role during the summer in exposing the use of telephone hacking by the media.
Grant turned up at the Liberal Democrat conference in Birmingham yesterday to promote the 'Hacked Off' campaign which is trying to ensure that proper action is taken to preserve personal privacy in the future.
