Elton has lashed out at the British government, calling UK politicians "untrustworthy."

Prime Minister Gordon Brown has been left red-faced in recent weeks after embarrassing revelations concerning several Members of Parliament's expense claims.

The scandal has led to a string of high-profile politicians quitting Parliament, and fuelled widespread calls for a General Election in the United Kingdom.

Elton has voiced his disgust at the scandal currently overshadowing the British political system.

He says, "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 added that England didn't have any politician as charismatic as America's Barack Obama.
