Obama’s View Of The World

Obama believes that he just needs to tell one more lie, in order to get people to start trusting him again.

AUSTRALIA appears to be bucking a global trend of distrust in governments since the election of the coalition last September.

But a new global survey suggests Prime Minister Tony Abbott and his team still have work to do.

The 2014 Edelman Trust Barometer showed trust in the Australian government as an institution jumped 14 points in the past year to 56 per cent, compared to a global average of 44 per cent.

“While trust levels in the United States and Europe have witnessed historic declines, Australia has bucked the trend and found confidence in the new government,” Edelman Australia CEO Michelle Hutton said on Friday.

In its 14th year, the barometer is a global study of 27,000 participants across 27 countries examining levels of trust across the institutions of government, business, non-government organisations and the media.

  1. I am shocked, shocked, to hear doubts being expressed about trust in the Government(TM)…The ghost of Inigo Montoya just whispered in my ear: “I do not think they know what the word means.”

  2. Wyguy says:

    I’m afraid I trust no government, none, not even at the lowest level. I know we must have some, but still I would never trust them.

  3. John B., M.D. says:

    The gain in trust in Australia corresponds to the election of a new govt that reversed the climate change agenda of the previous administration.

  4. Brian H says:

    John, “results from” rather than “corresponds to”, I think.
