Integrity lost

One of those moral panic type surveys has been reported in the MSM today.

For my 2ps worth I'd blame UK soap operas ( esp East Enders ) and programs like "The Apprentice" - where getting caught lying is just seen as evidence of how "passionate" and candidate is about themselves becoming Lord Sugar's next Apprentice.

Lying on CVs is now common place. Adultery is fine as long as its not your partner doing it.

Ultimately we reap what the modern church of the UK ( that's the BBC in case you've missed it ) sows. And the politicians - especially the New Labour types and Tory modernisers who utter contempt for truth and honesty goes unpunished to this day can share the blame.

Yes, that is about the measure of it.

I'd blame the politicians and lawyers.

I thought the hate laws made lieing necessary to survival.
