Don't believe everything you read in the papers

This is the text of a letter sent from Unison to the Grauniad following a news report that our General Secretary was an "Assistant Treasurer" of the Labour Party;

"Your article about Sir Gulam Noon raising funds for the Labour Party (17 April) referred to a role played by UNISON General Secretary, Dave Prentis. Dave Prentis is not an assistant treasurer of the Labour Party, nor does he sit on Labour's board of assistant treasurers and, to his knowledge, he has never met Sir Gulam Noon or Nigel Doughty, two of the people mentioned by name in the report. I would be grateful if you would publish this correction at the earliest opportunity."

I share this with you as I made the mistake of believing the Grauniad at first and know that others did too.
