Which profession do you mistrust?

It would be interesting to see what people view as the most mistrusted.

No competition and from much personal experience....estate agents, the whole lot and their dogs.

Seconded, again from expensive personal experience, Estate Agents.

Estate agents and anyone involved in car sales. I'm not sure if car sales is a profession, but I wouldn’t trust one as far as I could throw one.

members of parliament
developers
double glazers
jobbing builders
i could go on but i would bore you

n4165si I AM WITH YOU HERE i think the upmost important is "members of parliament"

they clearly have the most crucial roles above all of the profession's

& yet there is a large sniff of abuse handout/policies/grants ect...

not sure if they is but there needs to be a monitoring Scheme of some sort..& a independant one at that..

MP's
Lawyers
Car Salespeople

Have not had to deal with estate agents - don't have them in Scotland, work mainly done by lawyers

MPs
Estate Agents
Independent Financial Advisors (not all of them, I know a very good one, but a good proportion of them)

Isn't it funny how estate agents always describe themselves as "Chaaaartaaared Suurfeyers"

I'm with Gandalf et al.

A "Member of Parliament" is not a profession in the way I consider a profession - neither is an estate agent, a car salesman or several others that have been mentioned. Any old lag can come off the streets and set themselves up as any of them, with no qualifications at all - and a number of them do just that.

A profession is acquired by study, learning and obtaining qualifications by a recognised body specialising in that field.

I know an MP, an estate agent and an IFA who I trust.

Mistrust:
People trying to sell spray on stuff for roof tiles
Cavity wall insulators
Telephone sales
