Music legend Elton John has hit out at the British government, saying the country's politicians are "untrustworthy".

Dailyexpress.co.uk reports that Elton John has voiced his disgust at the scandal currently overshadowing the British political system.

"It's tragic when you lose faith in everybody that's a politician. It seems to me there's nobody you can trust in the British system at the moment and that's a horrible thing. I'm so disillusioned with politics in Britain," he said.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has been left red-faced in recent weeks after embarrassing revelations concerning several ministers' expense claims, with the scandal leading to the resignations of several ministers and a cabinet reshuffle, fuelling widespread calls for an general election.
