Complainant Name:
Mr Andy Anderson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Herald (Glasgow)

Complaint:

Mr Andy Anderson of Dunoon complained that a review of his book ‘The Skye Bridge Story’ – a record of the history of the campaign of resistance to the Skye Bridge tolls – may have misled readers into believing that he was associated with the current campaign by Robbie The Pict for a public inquiry. In fact, the complainant emphasised that he was strongly opposed to this campaign.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following letter from the complainant:


My book, which was reviewed by The Herald (Ask not for whom the bridge tolls… July 26) has no connection with the group campaigning at present for a public inquiry into the Skye Bridge tolls. I consider it a nonsense to ask the Scottish Government to spend public money on examining old Westminster legislation.

Report: 78
