Around the world, and in every aspect of our lives TRUST is an issue. Who do you trust but more importantly who can you trust? Is the trust previous generations had in various people and organisations still in place? Do you trust your Dr, your banker, your mechanic, your child’s teacher, the scout master, the people you work?

What is TRUST:

reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence…these are all good definitions however I notice loyalty is missing. I think that is apart of trust. Don’t you?

More than 1000 people were asked to rate how much they trusted 100                                                                                               well-known people and professions on a scale of one to 10…

Do you agree?
