Prostitutes More Trustworthy than Politicians in China- According to Poll

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 8, 2011

A poll in China showed that according to the locals, prostitutes are more trustworthy than the chinese government. I guess they figure that while both parties will screw you, the hookers are more fair in doing so…

from here:
The online survey of 3,376 Chinese showed that 7.9 per cent of respondents considered sex workers trustworthy, putting them in third place after farmers and religious workers, the Insight China magazine said on its website…”The sex workers’ unexpected prominence on this list of honour… is indeed unusual..The newspaper said the list, based on a survey carried out in June and July, showed scientists and teachers ranked “way below, and that government functionaries, too, scored hardly better”….Soldiers and students were ranked after sex workers on the list of trustworthy professions, according to Insight China….At least (the scientists and officials) have not slid into the least credible category, which consists of real estate developers, secretaries, agents, ntertainers and directors.”
