Complainant Name:
Colin Francome

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Independent


Colin Francome, Emeritus Professor at Middlesex University, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately described a poll he had commissioned about public opinion on Afghanistan as "an opinion poll for The Independent" in an article reporting its findings.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the online version of the article to make clear that the complainant had commissioned the poll.
