It is all a matter of trust

An interesting column by Stefan Stern in the FT this morning on trust, and why deception is the real enemy of trust. He refers to a Gallup poll quoted by Mark Thompson (BBC DG) last week, that only 36% of UK citizens thought politicians were trying to do their best for the country.  In the context of the government’s proposals for Northern Rock and Miliband defending the refusal to offer a referendum on the Lisbon treaty, we should not be surprised.

I called myself Wilks when I first started blogging. The idea was that it would afford a measure of anonymity. For much the same reason, there was no photo. Times change, hence the photo, but I decided that even when I changed the blog’s title at the start of 2009, I should remain Wilks.
