It appears that views of what is honest are changing.

Only 47% of people think it it is wrong for a carer to persuade a patient to change a will in their favour. That means that 53%, while not necessarily in favour, think there is nothing wrong with it.

I find that a sad comment on the state of our society.

I agree. Indeed, it's a betrayal of trust, imo

Points are well made, but I think we are talking about theft here.....Should I end up with Alzheimer's, in a home without any family support, then I would probably sign anything put in front of me.

Nurses, social workers doctors et. al. SHOULD be beyond reproach.

They are not.

Going a bit off topic here, some surveys use ridiculously small samples (or smaples).

The cosmetic ads are the worst offenders, they flash up the sample size on screen when saying 89% of women saw an improvement. One ad showed, very quickly, "89% of 37 women surveyed"...

No such thing as honesty anymore, just ask MP's.....

It makes a damn sight more of a contribution to the debate than yours, which is straight from the Daily Mail / Daily Telegraph "the whole world is evil so hide under the kitchen table" school of pessimism...

For goodness sake, can you not think of any thing more productive to do than repeatedly post these silly remarks? They add nothing whatever to the discussion, and serve only to make you look a fool. I'm sure you're not a fool, so why go out of your way to demonstrate otherwise?
