Email to The Times re: Jeremy Browne

I have just sent this email to

Dear The Times

In your printed edition of April 12 2014, the main front page headline was ” Lib Dems ‘are pointless’ ”

At no stage in the report underneath and on page 2 col 3, or in the extended interview on pages 32 and 33, was Jeremy Browne quoted as saying the words that the Lib Dems “are pointless”.

Jeremy Browne has tweeted to the effect that he did not say the words “are pointless”.

It is reasonable for Times readers to expect that, when you put words within quotation marks, you have evidence that the person concerned did indeed utter those words.

Could you please issue a clarification to state that Jeremy Browne did not say “are pointless”?

Thank you
