“What’s smug and deserves to be decapitated?” Matthew Parris gets most press complaints of 2008

Times columnist Matthew Parris’s comment piece about cyclists headlined “What’s smug and deserves to be decapitated?” received the most complaints to the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) in 2008.

In the press watchdog’s annual report, published today, it is revealed the article’s 584 complaints far outstripped Daily Mail coverage of Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand’s “Sachsgate” scandal, which received a mere 92 complaints in comparison, leaving it trailing in second place.
