Trust In the British Establishment Has Been Destroyed

According to a new survey of British citizens, public trust in the establishment has declined. Results show that politicians, banks and the media are all trusted by fewer than 10% of those polled.

The survey, conducted by OMD UK as part of a year-long research project, asked 2,000 adults their opinion on various aspects of British society. In its polling, OMD UK discovered that only 3% of the people trust politicians, while 6% trust the media and 7% trust the banks.

It should be no surprise that trust continues to decline in Britain. More and more people are beginning to wake up to the fact that our society is controlled by criminal psychopaths who only care about their own wealth, power and preservation.

In light of a myriad of scandals, which include MP's expenses, media silence about high-profile pedophiles, and the crimes of the banking elite, it's finally become clear to the majority of citizens that elements of our establishment will stop at nothing to hide their misdeeds.

The poll also found that 75% of people blame the criminal bankers for the economic crash. It's a shame, however, that 25% have not yet realised the truth, 39% of them blaming Gordon Brown and 27% David Cameron.

The report also revealed the hardship of British families, disclosing that 40% of them have had to sell possessions in order to survive. When asked for a solution to the economic crisis, 53% said that taxing the rich more would revive the economy.

Only 26% of people trust the police, 17% trust religious institutions, and 10% trust local authorities.

When it comes to technology, Facebook is the least trusted corporation. It received the support of just 9% of those polled, while Google received 17%.

Overall, these figures reflect the fact that public trust in the British establishment has been destroyed. We are now at a momentous turning point in our history, in which Britons are rejecting the illusion of power that our leaders would have us believe they hold.
