Peter Jackson is 14th Most Trusted... Can't Post

From the Otago Daily Times:


Quote
Reader's Digest commissioned an independent research firm to survey a representative sample of 500 New Zealand adults.

[..]The Most Trusted survey asked respondents about three categories: individuals, professions and brands.

[..]Cuddly filmmaker Peter Jackson is right up there at 14, while Queen Elizabeth ties with Richie McCaw at 20th equal just ahead of food-in-a- minute merchant Allyson Gofton and Hayley Westenra.


Most Trusted, eh?... hmm... well, I guess if a man is willing to bare his soul... or should I say the soles of his feet, he's pretty much an open book. Wink

R.I.P.

I had to laugh [In reply to] Can't Post

when I read the Prime Minister is only one ahead of alleged murderer of 5 David Bain Laugh

there's always someone worse off than you, so Helen Clark, despite the terrible poll results, can take comfort from the fact that at 66 she beats David Bain (67)

I too had to laugh [In reply to] Can't Post

While the Prime Minister was one ahead of the alleged murderer of five family members - the leader of the opposition was one behind!

Now, if that'd been a world-wide list [In reply to] Can't Post

and not just the very honourable NZ adults (Adults specifically? *scratches head*), then Peter would have probably been a lot higher on (if not TOPPING) the list.

Adults? Interesting.
