ITV removed a poll recently that asked viewers of Good Morning Britain if they wanted a boycott. But before it was removed, the results were 53% no, 47% yes.
Are you suggesting it was reliable but was removed because someone didn't like the result, or was it removed because there was some underlying issue meaning it was unreliable?

It was removed after complaints from leading figures in the UK Israeli lobby.

Well, their objection to it (from your link) was that there was no question of an equivalent poll on Qatar hosting the World Cup - and TBH they have a point, don't they?

But the results themselves were as reliable as any Twitter poll ever is*, is what I was wondering, so thanks. I thought you were suggesting that there was some wrongdoing going on somewhere.

(* ie, probably not very reliable at all, either way)
