As Statista's Martin Armstrong notes, when asked if they would generally trust politicans to tell the truth, only 17 percent of the poll's respondents said they would.

That is a far lower trust level than most other professions.

Nurses are at the very top of the trust league with 94 percent, while doctors come second with 91 percent.

Even though weather forecasters may not be personally to blame for getting things right all the time, 74 percent of people in the UK consider their profession trustworthy.
