Eve Atkins, founder of Offers Supermarket said  
People mainly come to the Offers supermarket site to find a deal or bargain and indeed sometimes we receive strange search requests however this request was more humorous than the others. We thought this would be a great poll to conduct as hopefully it will show certain professions that we arent fooled by their professional jargon.
She continues,  We are very aware that its always hard to win trust and very easy to lose it  so  I am not shocked that Politicians are considered to be untrustworthy, as recent antics have not shown them in a positive light.
