Thought for the day

When asked their views on the Ten Commandments, 8% of Leave voters, versus 4% of Remain voters, said that the commandment against lying (thou shalt not bear false witness) was no longer an important principle to live by. (YouGov)

How have we arrived at this situation? One should not need this part of the Ten Commandments to tell you it is wrong to lie. It should be common sense, instilled by parents. Decline in religious observation has nothing to do with it; upbringing does.
