Paul Golding, who is the leader of the Britain First political party, complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice about the claim that the party's Facebook page included an image of "shadowy men with baseball bats".


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the relevant paragraph in the online article, so that it stated the following:

The Britain First page boasts of how it ‘invades' mosques and the Facebook site of a Commanding Officer of Britain First included pictures such as an image of shadowy men with baseball bats.
