Jonathan Everett

Clauses Noted: 1

Complaint:

Mr Jonathan Everett complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article reporting on the government's e-petition website was inaccurate and misleading when it stated that the two most popular petitions on the day of publication both called for the return of capital punishment.

Resolution:

We have been asked to point out that there are also petitions in favour of retaining the ban on the death penalty.
